Council direction

Real estate enables support of several Council directives:
  • provide professional land management and real estate advisory services that protect The City’s assets, reduce liability, and ensure land is available for best corporate use
  • complete all corporate real estate transactions to maximize the economic and social benefits of The City's real estate portfolio. Surplus lands are identified and sold, which helps sustain the Revolving Fund, support further land acquisitions, support affordable housing and broaden the property tax base
  • acquire the land required to deliver programs for transportation network improvements, adoption of new transportation business models, and position Calgary to move into the future
