Presenting the draft short- and long-term plans for the south end of Shaganappi Trail

Join us this Wednesday, June 14, where we are presenting the draft short- and long-term recommended plans for the south end of Shaganappi Trail. We are asking Calgarians to share their perspectives on the opportunities and challenges of the plans so we can refine and finalize them.

Public Open House
Wednesday, June 14
4 to 8 p.m.
Montgomery Community Association - 5003 16th Avenue N.W.

“The plans are based on ideas that Calgarians have shared with us through the engagement process,” says Project Manager, Madhuri Seera. “They help address current issues and challenges, and at the same time, accommodate the continued growth in that part of the city.”

Currently, the South Shaganappi Study is in its last phase: Phase 3 - Preferred Concept Selection. Public input, along with further technical analysis, will help identify a set of final recommendations to present to Calgarians and Council this winter.

“The infrastructure was built in the 1960’s and is the remnant of a freeway plan that was never built,” says Madhuri. “The study has helped us understand how to reconfigure the roads to better meet the needs of the community and Calgary’s transportation network for the next 30 years.”
