The City has officially launched the ENVISION phase of the North Hill Local Growth Planning project and online engagement opportunities are now open.
The City wants people to get involved and join the conversation online now until March 10. In addition to the online engagement opportunity, there will be a large tradeshow in the area as well as a number of pop-up events at high-traffic locations throughout the area.
PROJECT BACKGROUND: The North Hill Communities Local Growth Planning initiative includes the communities of: Highland Park, Mount Pleasant, Tuxedo Park, Winston Heights-Mountview, Crescent Heights, Renfrew, Rosedale, Capitol Hill, Thorncliffe Greenview (south of Mcknight Blvd) and the Greenview Industrial – Ward 4, Ward 7 and Ward 9.
Through the local growth planning process, we’ll work together to create a future vision for how land could be used and re-developed in the area – building on the vision, goals and policies outlined in Calgary’s Municipal Development Plan and the Developed Areas Guidebook.
WHAT’S BEING DISCUSSED?
The future vision for growth; key opportunities and big ideas; and identifying topics that require further exploration
Where should growth be focused? What should transition areas look like? What impacts to existing amenities and infrastructure need to be considered?
- HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE? There are multiple ways to get involved.
- Online: Now – March 10 at Calgary.ca/NorthHill/Envision
- North Hill Communities Tradeshow: March 2 from 10a.m. – 2 p.m. at James Fowler High (4004 4 Street NW).
- Pop-up events: Multiple locations throughout the area (details below).
- HOW WILL INPUT BE USED? Input will be compiled, analyzed and themed. The North Hill Communities Working Group and The City will come together to prioritize the themes heard from the community and this information will be used to inform the next stages of project planning.
