The Apr. 24, 2019, Transportation and Transit Committee meeting included:

Green Line LRT Public Gardens Scoping Report

Committee received a scoping report providing an overview of the Public Gardens/Railway Gardens work that has occurred since the approval of the Notice of Motion (C2018-1445), and includes the Green Line Public Gardens Scoping Report. The development of Public Gardens has the potential to benefit The City, Calgarians and visitors. Public Gardens would support Calgary’s commitment to invest in public spaces by leveraging past successes and continuing to lead in innovative design. Third-party investments are an opportunity for The City to optimize available funds with minimal risk to the delivery of the Green Line. City Shaping work remains a priority for the Green Line. Citizens who use transit and live in the city will benefit from early investment in City Shaping through this Public Gardens initiative for generations to come. This will go forward to Council with the recommendations that Council: (1) Direct Administration to bring this report forward as Urgent Business to the 2019 April 29 meeting of Council; and (2) Direct Administration to report back to the SPC on T&T no later than Q4 2019 with a workplan including scope, cost, resources, funding source, engagement and delivery strategy for the Public Gardens Master Planning work and the development of six Public Garden Projects.
