The City of Calgary created This is my neighbourhood as a way to help residents identify how their community could become an even better place to live, work and play.
In partnership with The City, residents have the opportunity to develop a clear community vision that helps guide a list of requested City programs, services and small-scale infrastructure improvements within their neighbourhood.
This is my neighbourhood gives residents a voice and encourages them to take an active role in shaping the future of their neighbourhood.
The results are in!
You spoke and we listened. Click through the icons below to see the list of This is my neighbourhood improvement projects chosen in partnership with our 14 participating communities.
In 2015 - 2016, we visited with 14 participating neighbourhoods to identify ways to help their communities become an every better place to live, work and play. Based on each neighbourhood’s feedback, we are pleased to partner on a number of your community’s requested improvement projects.
Here is an overview of how this whole process unfolded. Thank you for taking an active role in shaping the future of your neighbourhood!
Create a vision
We asked you, “What do you like about your neighbourhood? What should change? What would make it great in the future?” A vision is a common goal of what the future of the neighbourhood could be.

You told us about some small-scale changes that your thought would help achieve your neighbourhood vision.
The City shared the results of what we heard, just to make sure we understood you correctly.

A team of several City departments reviewed your ideas. As part of our review process, we ensured that the ideas presented were feasible and that they matched up with your neighbourhood vision.
