Over the last year, residents of North Glenmore Park 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 North Glenmore Park’s community vision: A vibrant, local focused and people friendly place with a strong sense of identity where residents are connected, involved, feel safe and enjoy the best green spaces in the city.

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 North Glenmore Park:
