Over the last year, residents of Canyon Meadows identified ways to help their neighbourhood become an even better place to live, work and play.

Residents outlined what was important to them, focusing on the themes of people, places, programs and possibilities. These discussions led to the development of Canyon Meadow’s key neighbourhood themes: parks/greenspaces, recreation, accessibility/mobility, neighbourliness, aesthetics.

The City then worked with residents to identify projects that would support the vision and be possible in their neighbourhood. Residents prioritized the projects and City Administration ensured they could be implemented.

The following is a summary of programs, services and/or small-scale infrastructure improvements that The City of Calgary will implement in partnership with residents of Canyon Meadows:
