Neighbourhood Streets

Neighbourhood Streets

Calgarians value living on great neighbourhood streets.  

Our streets help us feel connected, healthy and safe in our community. We’ve developed a policy and community resources to collaborate with Calgarians in creating streets where neighbours of all ages and abilities can connect and have access to safe, comfortable travel options.

What is a Neighbourhood Street?

A neighbourhood street is a street you might live on or the one near you with local shops and your closest bus stop.

There is a lot of activity that belongs on neighbourhood streets like moving, connecting with neighbours and gardening or mowing the lawn.

Neighbourhood streets work well when everyone can move safely and comfortably.

What makes a street livable?

Calgarians value streets that feel safe, welcoming, inclusive, offer comfortable travel choices, support great destinations, are healthy and fun.
