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
