Upcoming Development Workshop
A primer from the Federation of Calgary Communities.
An upcoming Federation of Calgary Communities (Federation) event is shining a spotlight on change in greenfield/developing communities. It’s a half-day workshop that helps residents understand change and its role in making a community more vibrant.
The workshop is on Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Canyon Meadows Community Association (844 848 Cantabrian Drive SW). Register for the workshop at calgarycommunities.com. You’ll learn about:
- The role and planning process for public green spaces
- The lifecycle of schools, i.e., when and why schools open and close
- What “middle housing” refers to and what this type of development does for a community
Presenters include City of Calgary planners and policy makers, as well as a planner from the Calgary Board of Education. It’s a great opportunity for residents, planners, developers, and city staff to share knowledge and ideas.
The Federation is a non-profit member organization that supports community-based organizations such as community associations. It provides several programs and services, including workshops and events that address topics from governance and community engagement to urban planning and development.
Federation workshops are a great way to learn more about development in Calgary, and to become inspired to have your say in urban growth and planning. Get a head start on learning about topics like gentle density and find out what the planning process looks like in a previously developed community.
