Mark your calendars Ward 4 residents – two more information sessions have been booked!

The first two Green Line North Station Workshops have been scheduled for mid-March, and early April. The Station Workshops provide a forum for participants to share their thoughts on station access, community connectivity and mobility, urban design. The design team (City and consultants) will share information about the LRT alignment, and station locations. Some station locations will be able to ‘vibrate’ along the alignment to better address connectivity, community concerns, or redevelopment and transit oriented development opportunities. Other stations will not be as flexible, and could be fixed in place based on land impacts, and connecting transit services (bus routes). The Station Workshops provide valuable input to the design team, and also feed into the upcoming transit oriented design charrettes.

The project team is now accepting RSVPs for the first two workshops. Workshops are limited to 100 participants and span a three hour period to ensure a productive session. As event details are finalized, RSVPs will be opened for additional station areas. Visit the project web page to reserve your spot at the station workshops.

 

Station area workshops will allow participants and the project team to work through topics such as:

* How the station will be accessed by foot, bicycle, feeder transit routes, or vehicles

* How the station will be integrated into the community

These hands-on workshops provide valuable input to the design team, and will help inform the upcoming transit oriented design (TOD) charrettes, which will take place later in 2016.

As more workshops are finalized for April, May and June, details will be shared at Calgary.ca/greenline.
