New Ideas and Investment for Calgary

May 19, 2017

Student Collaboration

 

An unique collaboration between Grade Six students at Langevin School and the University of Calgary's Faculty of Design graduate students studying green infrastructure, has resulted in the The Fourth Avenue Flyover Project. Combining play with ecological infrastructure the two groups designed plans to transform the uninviting public space under the Fourth Avenue Flyover in Bridgeland. Some of the creative ideas include rain gardens, swings and skating rinks and permanent outdoor exercise equipment. We look forward to a presentation on their ideas as part of the program for the Calgary Conference.

Micro-grants for walkable streets 

 

The City of Calgary continues to demonstrate its commitment to making Calgary a city where people choose to walk.  The council has approved a scheme to provide $172,000 in micro-grants to local community and business groups with ideas to make the streets of Calgary more walker friendly.  Successful applicants will be announced at the conference and the ideas displayed.  If you would like to apply for the grants, click here for more details.
