The City of Calgary is preparing to restart the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study process. The completed study will include recommendations on how Crowchild Trail from 24 Avenue N.W. to 17 Avenue S.W. can be improved over time, including short-term and long-term roadway upgrades necessary for moving high volumes of vehicular traffic, while supporting all modes of transportation and minimizing impacts to adjacent communities. City staff hope to have the study completed by the end of 2016. Upon completion of the study, various construction projects will proceed based on need, and available funding, as determined by Council.
The study will be broken up in six phases with a strong focus on community engagement during each phase of the process. This will provide multiple opportunities for public feedback and will incorporate stakeholder and citizen feedback into the decision-making process throughout. Stakeholders such as area businesses, land owners, community residents, and road users are all welcome to provide input on future improvements for Crowchild Trail as the study progresses.

Phase 1 of the study will establish an Engagement Design Team to answer the question “How can we have the most effective conversation possible about the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study?” The Engagement Design Team will be comprised of a group of citizens committed to participate, and will represent diverse perspectives including neighbouring communities, the broader community of Calgary, and different types of users of Crowchild Trail.
In early February, The City will be inviting Calgarians to participate on the Engagement Design Team. Input from Phase 1 of the study will be used to develop an engagement program that will apply to Phases 2 to 6, from spring 2015 to the end of the study in late 2016.
