Public engagement on concepts for permanent traffic calming measures ran from January 17 to 30, 2022. Feedback from the that engagement can be found in the What We Heard Report.
Please visit the Panorama Hills Neighbourhood Streets project page for updates and more information.
The project team is working on incorporating feedback into detailed designs. Installation of the traffic calming measures is anticipated for later in 2022, as resources allow.
To learn more about the project or give feedback, please contact 311 or contact the project team at NeighbourhoodStreets@calgary.ca. Sign up for the Panorama Hills project email updates to stay informed.
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.
OTHER WORK IN PANORAMA HILLS
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.
What We Heard
This project will have three phases of engagement:
- Phase 1: Identification – October- November, 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
- Part A: Testing and Activation - June 2021- Panorama 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 planned a community placemaking and activation event from June 14-19, 2021.
- We evaluated the effectiveness and impacts of the changes made during the Street Lab to determine what modifications needed to be made before permanent installation in 2022 based on available resources. This included collecting feedback from residents, businesses, and other stakeholders.
- The What We Heard Report (phase 3) is available here.
- Part B: Evaluation and Design – January 2022
- This phase of engagement examined locations for traffic calming improvements. These improvements may be permanent or temporary. Feedback gathered through this engagement will help the project team refine the recommended improvements as detailed designs are developed.
- The What We Heard report (Phase 3 Part B) is available here.
PHASE 1: IDENTIFICATION
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.
PHASE 2: PRIORITIZATION
PHASE 3- PART A: TESTING AND ACTIVATION
The survey is now closed thank you for your time and input. Check back here for a What We Heard report coming soon.
We would also like to hear about values:
PHASE 3-PART B: EVALUATION AND DESIGN
The project team is now examining locations for traffic calming improvements. These improvements may be permanent or temporary. Based on the feedback provided, our team will develop detailed designs of improvements with installation of the traffic calming anticipated later in 2022, as resources allow.
