BACKGROUND

In 2018 The City did engagement in Ranchlands for the project called This is My Neighbourhood (TIMN). TIMN was created as an opportunity for residents to partner with The City to identify ways to help make their neighbourhood an even better place to live, work and play.

During TIMN residents in Ranchlands outlined what was important to them and came up with a vision: Ranchlands values feeling safe walking around the community and near streets, having beautiful parks and more gardens, having residents who care about their properties, and having modern playgrounds where families can gather.

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.

One project was an open space plan assessment.

An Open Space Plan is a framework for the enhancement of public open space areas in suburban Calgary communities. In 2018, The City developed the Neighbourhood Open Space Guidelines,which provide a general step-by-step process for understanding and enhancing open spaces in all of Calgary. The document will become available in late 2018.

PAST ENGAGEMENT

Open Spaces in Ranchlands

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback, the engagement is now closed.

Ranchlands values feeling safe walking around the community and near streets, having beautiful parks and more gardens, having residents who care about their properties, and having modern playgrounds where families can gather.

Keeping in mind the vision for Ranchlands, what programs, maintenance, improvements, changes do you see as needed to realize this vision for the parks in Ranchlands?

As part of this open space plan we are talking about Ranchero Park, the small park on Ranchero Green NW and on Ranchview Drive NW. The results of the engagement will be extrapolated to the other small/pocket parks in the community as well so keep this in mind when making your comments. Please note that the cultural heritage parks are not part of the engagement but we will take that feedback into consideration.

A What We Heard report of everything you shared in Phase 1 of the engagement is now available. We used those ideas to create a list of initiatives you wanted to see in the open spaces in Ranchlands. After we hear from you on your preferences we will share a second What We Heard Report.

Once all of the engagement results are compiled, an open space assessment report for Ranchlands will be shared here and with the Community Association for future implementation.
