Community Representation Framework

The City of Calgary works with many partners, stakeholders and organized community groups when it comes to making decisions around community-building. We work with developers, community associations, resident associations, business improvement areas and others to provide Council with the support and information they need to make decisions on land use planning and the provision of amenities and infrastructure.

The Community Representation Framework (CRF) project is an opportunity to support building and sustaining complete communities for Calgarians through the development of a framework for inputs into civic decisions that is repeatable, flexible and transparent. The framework will:

  • Clarify the roles and expectations of organized community groups and The City in the civic decision-making process
  • Outline a civic decision-making process that integrates regulatory, social, community services and infrastructure priorities and outcomes

This work will be supported by the CRF Task Force which is made up of community stakeholders, City staff and Council members who will explore and provide guidance on how organized community groups can best represent community and provide input into decision-making on matters related to building community.

The CRF project is anticipated to report back to Council with its findings during the first quarter of 2018.
