3 Things in Acadia!

Traffic Speed Survey

The City of Calgary is currently looking at a pedestrian strategy. One element of the pedestrian strategy was the lowering of speed limits on residential streets where families live.  This element was voted down, and no report of residential speeds will be made.

The Acadia Community Association is conducting a traffic survey. We’re really interested to hear about your concerns of our roads, both as a driver and how it impacts living & walking in your community.

Please fill out the survey here

Action Plan Check-in

From calgary.ca:

Action Plan is The City’s business plan and budget document. It was developed in 2014 for the years 2015-2018. In recognition that the Plan needs to adapt with Calgary’s changing needs, we are Checking In with citizens about their priorities for 2017 and 2018.

In 2014, Calgarians ranked the following priorities as the most important to focus on during 2015-2018:

  1. Getting Around Calgary
  2. Calgary’s Communities
  3. Growing Calgary
  4. Calgary’s Economy
  5. Calgary’s Environment
  6. How The City of Calgary works

Now using the same tool, tell us if these priorities have changed.

Action Plan Check-ins

Starting in February, there will be many opportunities to learn more about Calgary’s Action Plan and for you to provide input on what you believe The City’s priorities should be for 2017-2018.

A ‘check-in’ will be held at the ARC during our Winter Carnival on Feb 20, from 11am – 1pm.

For a list of other times & places, visit the City’s Action Plan Check-in page.
