The City of Calgary is restarting the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study with a new six-phase process that will provide multiple opportunities for public feedback throughout the study.
Phase 1 of the study will establish an Engagement Design Team to answer the question “How do we have the most effective conversation possible about the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study?”
Until February 22, 2015, The City is inviting interested Calgarians to participate on an Engagement Design Team. Participants will be chosen by random selection based on criteria that ensures there is diversity in ages, gender, type of user and community for those who will make-up the Engagement Design Team. Calgarians who are not randomly selected for the Engagement Design Team can still provide input on how The City can best engage stakeholders for this study by completing an online questionnaire, which will be available on the project web page after the Engagement Design Team is established end of February.
The 18- to 20-member team will be comprised of people who live in communities immediately next to Crowchild, people who drive or use public transit along Crowchild, and people who walk or ride bikes adjacent to or across Crowchild, to make sure a range of diverse perspectives are considered.
The work of the Engagement Design Team and the resultant engagement program will be shared with the public in the spring of 2015.
About the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study
The study will provide recommendations on how Crowchild Trail from 24 Avenue N.W. to 17 Avenue S.W. can be improved over time. This includes short-term and long-term roadway upgrades necessary for moving high volumes of vehicles and supporting all means of transportation, while minimizing impacts to adjacent communities.
