City wants citizen input on West Eau Claire Park design concepts

The City’s first round of engagement on West Eau Claire Park is complete and now the public can provide input on the draft design concepts that have been created from all the comments received. The public are invited to an open house Tuesday, October 28 at Eau Claire Market, Centre Court, 4 PM – 8 PM.

The first round of engagement received over 1600 ideas and suggestions on how people would like to see areas of the park redeveloped. A summary of what was heard will be presented at the open house along with a site analysis, and draft design concepts, giving participants another opportunity to input into the project.

“We received very thought-out ideas in the first engagement which tells us people are passionate about this park space and that’s excellent,” says Greg Stewart, project manager with The City of Calgary. “At this stage, the input we receive will be used to revise our strategy and concept designs to ensure we are using as much public input as we can, based on the budget and capabilities available for the space.”

The West Eau Claire Park is along the Eau Claire Promenade from the Louise Bridge (10th Street SW) to Eau Claire Plaza. The public input will help The City identify a clear vision to guide the design, provide a concept plan, and prioritize improvements for West Eau Claire Park.
