Ward 8 News: 2014 Citizen Satisfaction Survey - Ward 8 report

  • Share

The Citizen Satisfaction Survey 2014 results show that the vast majority of folks living in Ward 8 are happy to live in Calgary and within their communities. What the Ward 8 results also indicate is that the priorities I ran on align with the priorities of the Ward.

The survey shows that Ward 8 residents want to see a greater priority place on:

  • Parks and pathways,
  • recreation and community services,
  • planning and growth management,
  • downtown revitalization,
  • cycling,
  • arts and culture,
  • multi-family recycling, and
  • homeless, poverty, and affordable housing.

Big wins for Ward 8 this year include the approval of multi-family recycling, the Centre City Cycle Tracks pilot project, and funding for some badly-needed inner city parks from the ENMAX Legacy Parks fund.

This is just the first step, and there’s still a lot of work to do in order to make Calgary even better. I campaigned on the idea of “communities first” last year. That still remains my top priority. I am working towards revitalizing our existing infrastructure, managing how our city grows, offering Calgarians more affordable housing options, and taking steps to make our communities even more vibrant.

I started here a little over a year ago because of my strong passion for my community and city. I still feel the same way, and am committed to making Ward 8 and Calgary a great place to live, work, and play.
