REVISED: Media Advisory: City Response to Questions about West Village

Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation, the company that owns the Calgary Flames and the Calgary Stampeders, has proposed a concept for an arena and stadium/field house complex to be located on lands in West Village. 

Upon receipt of a formal proposal from Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation, City Administration will seek direction from City Council with respect to establishing a framework for reviewing the proposal, engaging the public, and identifying options for Council’s consideration.

Until Council has provided such direction, City Administration is not in a position to respond to media inquiries regarding the proposal. 

City Administration will, however, continue to respond to media inquiries regarding established and approved City policy and documentation that can be released relating to West Village. Please note that, depending upon the nature of the media inquiry, some time may be required to undertake the research required to respond to the media inquiry.

The FAQ below provides some preliminary information in regards to the City’s involvement with the West Village lands.

As discussion regarding the proposal progresses, City Administration will continue to update this FAQ document.
