I live in a community that hosts major outdoor events.

Fall 2022 Update:
Thank you for providing your feedback. Online engagement for this project is now complete. Please see the What We Heard Report for more details on the public engagement process and what was heard from participants.
The City of Calgary wants to better understand what issues
or concerns communities are dealing with related to major outdoor events so we
can provide the support they need. We want to hear from
residents who live in and around communities where major outdoor events take
place, where unintended gatherings or unplanned travel congestion can result,
and from all Calgarians who attend these events, so that we can provide the
right support services to communities to ensure successful event experiences
and happy neighbours.
City Council wants to hear from Calgary communities and event organizers to understand the issues and concerns facing community residents regarding major outdoor events, to ensure successful events in all Calgary communities. Based on what we learn, we will develop recommendations to provide needed supports and services to mitigate community impacts. As outlined in this Notice of Motion: Developing Municipal Event and Landmark Special Policy Areas (May 17, 2022), recommended supports for affected communities will be replicated across Calgary to balance the use and enjoyment of our great public spaces with residents and visitors alike.
We will report back to City Council in September 2022 with what we’ve heard from citizens and event organizers.
Selected Communities and Scope:
Crescent Heights as well as the communities surrounding and near Scotsman’s Hill, Prince’s Island Park, Millennium Park, Prairie Winds Park, Elliston Park, and the Red Mile (Beltline neighbourhood at 17th Avenue S.W.) have been initially selected because they annually host or are near major outdoor events. The residents of the communities surrounding Scotsman’s Hill, the Red Mile, and City parks we’ve mentioned, are encouraged to provide their feedback as well as everyone who may attend major outdoor events.
All Calgarians are welcome and encouraged to participate in this engagement and share feedback, it is not limited to residents of selected communities.
