Green Line Board

The Green Line Board is fully accountable for delivering the City’s largest infrastructure investment on behalf of our funding partners and Calgarians.

Reporting quarterly through the Priorities and Finance Committee the Board is made up of the City Manager and private citizens with expertise in governance, leadership, procurement, engineering design, construction, urban design, and P3 transactions.

The business case for Green Line remains strong. The Board has undertaken due diligence on the cost and risk estimates and have confidence in the processes, data and estimates completed by the project team. The Board is firmly committed to managing costs and risks and should escalation costs and other risks not materialize, the Board will complete the Council-approved vision for Stage 1 and build from Eau Claire to 16 Avenue N. This phased construction is in line with Council’s original direction to build the Green Line in a stage-gate project approach.
