The City of Calgary is in the beginning stages of restarting the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study.
This 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 that will be necessary in moving high volumes of traffic, while continuing to support all modes of transportation and minimizing impacts to adjacent communities.
The new study consists of six phases, and will provide multiple opportunities for public feedback during each project phase. The study will incorporate stakeholder and citizen feedback into the decision-making process. Stakeholders such as area businesses, land owners, community residents, and road users will all be able to provide input on future improvements to Crowchild Trail as the study progresses.
Phase 1 of the study will see an Engagement Design Team start up in order to answer the question "how do we have the most effective conversation possible about the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study?" The team will include a group of citizens committed to participate, and will represent different perspectives including neighbouring communities, the broader community of Calgary, and different types of Crowchild Trail users.
In early February, The City of Calgary will be inviting Calgarians to participate on the Engagement Design Team. An engagement program will be developed using Phase 1 input; this program will then be used during Phases 2 to 6, from spring 2015 to the end of the study in late 2016.
Please visit the Crowchild Trail Corridor Study website for more information, and for updates as the study progresses.
