GETTING AROUND THE HERITAGE COMMUNITIES
We would like your help to identify mobility issues and missing links in the Heritage communities for people walking and wheeling.
This opportunity to provide insight builds on our understanding from engagement on other projects in the area like the Heritage Communities Local Growth Plan, Fairview Community Green Space project, and the Pathway and Bikeway project. All of the information that is collected will inform our understanding of mobility needs in the Heritage Communities. To see what people have talked about during these projects see the links section on the right of this page.
Tip: In the Pathway and bikeway what we heard report you can click on the maps (starting on page 11) to read the specific comments.
What we are asking you as part of this project
We are building local information about walking and wheeling needs in the Heritage communities. What do we mean when we say mobility? Mobility for this project includes walking around the communities, to and from transit, as well as what we are calling wheeling: a general term for people choosing to bike, use a scooter, a skateboard, or inline skates.
On the map below please share at least two (2) places that are working well, and two (2) that need improvement. This map will be open until March 31, 2020 for input.
In April we will compile all of the responses and residents will then be asked to prioritize the locations for improvement. In the summer and through 2021 we will be installing temporary and other low cost measures as a way to test design options with you. Following and as funding becomes available, the temporary measures will be made permanent.

WHAT IS ENGAGEMENT AT The City of Calgary?
The City defines engagement as:
Your input, and the input of other citizens and stakeholders, helps The City understand people’s perspectives, opinions, and concerns. Input collected in each phase of the project will be compiled and share through a What We Heard report.
Although it would be a great outcome, the goal of public engagement is not to reach consensus or make everyone happy. Public engagement is also not about voting or collecting representative information. Public engagement is about considering the input, ideas and perspectives of people who are interested or impacted by decisions, before decisions are made.
