Infrastructure Status Report
The City’s infrastructure portfolio enables The City to deliver valuable services to Calgarians. This includes machinery & equipment, buildings, bridges, facilities, roads, parks, water infrastructure and more.
The 2020 ISR reports on The City’s infrastructure as of January 1, 2020 and sets out to answer the following key questions related to asset management:
- What do we own?
- What is it worth?
- What condition is it in?
- What is the infrastructure funding gap?
- What services are the assets and their funding linked to?
Information used in this report was collected from 11 business units as well as Calgary Police Service, Calgary Parking Authority and Calgary Public Library. Collectively, these areas steward 99 per cent of The City’s assets. In the 2020 ISR, The City’s infrastructure information has been aligned with our service lines.
