Community Standards Bylaw review

City of Calgary bylaws are reviewed periodically to ensure that they meet the needs of citizens. The Community Standards Bylaw review is based on the need to make proactive changes to the bylaw to better accommodate the changing needs of citizens, respond to emerging issues, and continue to meet community expectations.

As part of the ongoing stakeholder consultation on the bylaw, The City surveyed citizens to understand their needs and expectations regarding the Community Standards Bylaw. Based on the survey findings and other research, Calgary Community Standards developed preliminary amendments to address citizen concerns. Calgarians were thenĀ  invited to provide feedback on the proposed changes through online engagement and at community events over the summer. More than 11,000 respondents provided feedback that helped shape the proposed amendments.
