The Community Engagement Process to Date

During phase 1 (July - Aug, 2016) people were invited to participate by providing input online, at in-person sessions in Chinatown, on a walking tour of the area, by leaving feedback on a sounding board in the community, or at pop-on street engagement events via the City events vehicle.

In phase 1 we asked five questions that were focused on Chinatown today and into the future. These questions were:

Chinatown Today

1. Why is Chinatown special to you?

2. What are the most important issues facing Chinatown today? How do you think we can address these issues?

Chinatown Tomorrow

3. Think about the future of Chinatown. What are you most worried about?

4. As Calgary evolves, how can we plan for changes in Chinatown while preserving the character of the community?

5. Imagine your ideal Chinatown 20 years in the future. What does it look like? How does it feel?

Some highlights from phase 1 include:

  • 6 weeks of engagement between July 8-August 19
  • Over 2,000 participants joined the process
  • Over 3,600 ideas shared
  • Key themes have informed the development of the draft principles we will discuss today

The key initial result of the first phase of engagement is a set of draft principles for Chinatown.

To see more detail about what we asked and what we heard from the public in phase one, see below.




1. 为什么唐人街对您来讲特别?

2. 今日唐人街面临的最重要的问题是什么?您觉得我们能怎样应对这些问题?


3. 想想唐人街的未来,您最担心的是什么?
