The City of Calgary is testing a Neighbourhood Streets pilot policy with the goal of creating local streets where neighbours can connect and choose travel options, no matter their age or ability. As part of the Neighbourhood Streets Program, The City is working with the community to improve streets in Panorama Hills for everyone to travel around the community.
This project includes:
- Public engagement to listen and learn where changes are needed to make walking and wheeling more comfortable.
- Implementing temporary materials in 2021 to transform streets in ways that make walking and wheeling (biking, skateboarding, using e-scooters or in-line skating) feel safer and more fun.
- Public engagement to evaluate temporary changes to streets.
- Installing permanent improvements (ie. pedestrian crossing improvements and traffic calming measures) based on prioritization and resources.
This project will have three phases of engagement:
- Phase 1: Identification – Oct 19 – Nov 8, 2020
- In phase 1 we wanted to hear from you about how you move around Panorama Hills and to learn what improvements could allow you and your neighbours to travel around your community in a new way. To view the What We Heard (phase 1) click here or check it out in the links section.
- Phase 3: Evaluation – 2021- Panorama Street Lab (click here to learn more about Street Lab)
- This phase of engagement will take place while a variety of different temporary measures are installed throughout the community for a one week period. We will evaluate their effectiveness and impacts to determine if any modifications need to be made before permanent installation that could start in 2022 based on available resources. This will include collecting feedback from residents, businesses, and other stakeholders.
- Working with the University of Calgary and the Panorama Hills Community Association, The City has planned a community placemaking and activation event from June 14-19, 2021.
- We will evaluate the effectiveness and impacts of the changes made during the Street Lab to determine what modifications need to be made before permanent installation that could start in 2022 based on available resources. This will include collecting feedback from residents, businesses, and other stakeholders.
- Whether you had a chance to participate in the Street Lab or not, we would like to hear from you between June 14-28, 2021.

Other work in Panorama
Previous work done in Panorama Hills
This project will be informed by previous engagement with Panorama Hills residents
- Northern Hills communities have been engaged since 2012 for Calgary’s Green Line LRT. Part of this engagement has included sharing input on future station connections and walking and wheeling improvements.
- Annual Ward 3 safety meetings have helped identify locations where residents feel unsafe.
- The Creating Coventry project has engaged with Calgarians in a new way and will help identify opportunities in this Neighbourhood Streets Project.
In phase 1 we wanted to hear from you about how you move around Panorama Hills and to learn what improvements could allow you, or one of your neighbours, to travel around your community in a new way.
We would also like to hear about values:
The Panorama Springs Street Lab has concluded. We will publish a summary of what we learned and what we heard from participants mid-July.
