Canada Global (Web News) The proposed 20-year plan for the city’s parks is up for public comment and interaction in Calgary.
The city stated in a release on Tuesday morning that the plan will serve as a manual for how it will create, administer, and preserve parks in Calgary.
There will be three rounds of participation, each centred on one of the three themes—wellness, culture, and the environment. The engagement will also evaluate how Calgary residents interact with such topics throughout the parks of the city.
“The last long-term plan wasn’t finished for 20 years. It’s time to conduct this work because both Calgarians’ demands and the needs of our city have evolved, according to Anita O’Driscoll, the city’s business and policy manager.
Between April 18 and May 19, Calgarians are asked to provide their input online via the City of Calgary website. There will be a number of in-person engagement meetings held in each city region.
The city aims to make parks more inclusive, therefore those from different backgrounds and individuals with disabilities are especially urged to offer suggestions, according to O’Driscoll.
“We want to hear from as many people as possible because these public spaces are for everyone, are crucial to a healthy, vibrant, and resilient city, and deliver enormous environmental, social, and economic benefits to Calgary.
