Citizens+Students Planning Workshop

  • September 20, 2019
    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In a changing and challenging growth and development environment Community Associations (CAs) experience pressures for redevelopment and land use change. CAs are not always provided with enough information and background to make decisions that would benefit their neighborhood.

Since 2013 the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape (SAPL) Master of Planning Program at the University of Calgary and the Federation of Calgary Communities have worked together to support CAs in their decision making process around land use and development issues. SAPL’s Master of Planning students and citizens have collaborated in projects addressing current urban development issues resulting in reports, studies and implementation projects that address the most pressing issues providing tools and building skills that become the foundation for future land use and development decisions.

Please join us at this workshop to learn more about your CA’s potential involvement in the project. Join the discussion of how Calgary’s communities can change and develop while maintaining their character and quality. The workshop will include testimonials from CAs that worked with us in the past, a discussion on current challenges that affect communities, and the steps necessary for CAs to be part of this project.
