Draft Guiding Principles

The eight draft principles below were developed from the hundreds of comments we received online, and during our public events throughout summer. After collecting the comments, they were sorted into broad themes and then translated into broad planning principles. The principles are intended to be used to help inform a vision for the future of Chinatown. They will also help guide amendments to the land use application.

1

Preserve and Promote Culture and Heritage

Chinatown is a distinct cultural and historical community. Chinatown is Calgary’s only remaining cultural neighbourhood and has strong ties to the past. It is separate and distinct from the downtown, Eau Claire and the East Village.

2

Create a Human-Scaled Environment

Chinatown is a human scaled environment, with a fine-grained retail environment at grade, with great public spaces and public art.

3

Create Energy and Life

Chinatown is a community full of energy and life, where housing accommodate a range of ages and lifestyles.

4

Balance Mobility

Chinatown is one of Calgary’s most walkable communities, and will continue to be a destination for all with great access by all transportation modes.

5

Create a place to Gather and Celebrate

Chinatown is a community that enables family and friends to gather and celebrate at festivals and events.

6

Create a Mixed-Use Community

Chinatown is a mixed-use residential community where residents are able to meet most of their daily needs at local businesses.

7

Create a Safe and Clean Community

Chinatown is a safe and clean environment whether you are spending time shopping, dining out, visiting family and friends, or crossing the street.

8

Create an Age-Friendly Community

Chinatown is a community for all, and provides housing for residents of all ages.

“There should be urban sanctuary quiet spaces or tranquil urban garden space for contemplative, relaxation or religious purposes”

8 October, 2016

BL says:

“Draft Principles missed practical walkability challenges such as light and wind. Also, where are the youth's concerns?”

BL says:

“Illegitimate consultation. Missing input from immigrant non-Chinese community about gang and drug violence not addressed by CPS. ”

8 October, 2016

cheaplandnotforsale says:

“Why is a contemporary art gallery setting up in Chinatown? Keep Chinatown Chinese.”

7 October, 2016

“Emphasize the multi-generational social fabric. The 'elders' walk' that young folks put on to support their seniors is an excellent example”

7 October, 2016

Ron says:

“Create more senior housing projects. ”

6 October, 2016

LWong says:

“Perhaps property taxes credits to promote local business to start up in the area. The lack of choice is a deterrent for people to visit.”

Shaz says:

“1. What about an educational module - venue where all cultures can take part 2. Green space to keep the community safe 3. Free Parking”

6 October, 2016

馬鳳齡 says:

“Create a planned community with Board-managed business mix. Heritage+Development; designated as living heritage site similar to Beltline.”

“I would add are specific mentions of economic viability and affordable housing.”
