Thank you to everyone who spent their Saturday morning sharing their thoughts and ideas on the future of Thorncliffe Greenview and Highland Park with us. We had exceptional turn out from the local community and many insightful comments were shared.
The event could not have been possible without the partnership between The Federation of Calgary Communities, The University of Calgary’s Urban Studies and Environmental Design programs, the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association, and the Highland Community Association. This also includes support from Youth Central and Community Mediation Calgary Society. For more information on these organizations, visit the ‘Partners‘ page.
So, what’s next for Community Visioning at Thorncliffe Greenview and Highland Park? You can now register for the student presentations that will take place at 9am on Saturday, April 12th at the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Hall. Senior Urban Studies undergraduate students, under the supervision of Prof Ghitter, will report back to the community with reflective community visions for the future. This is an opportunity for community members to review redevelopment scenarios and ask questions. While this is an academic exercise, it is also a chance to learn about best practices in planning from around the world and consider the variety of opportunities available to these communities.
This is a free public event with daycare and refreshments. For further location information and to register click here. If you have any problems registering, please contact Karly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403.244.4111 ext 203.
