This just in from the City of Calgary:
The City is looking to make public realm improvements to help increase activity and mobility in the southwest communities to make it more enjoyable for everyone. These improvements include the following projects:
26 Avenue S.W. Improvements: We are making changes to 26 Avenue S.W. between Sarcee Trail and 14 Street S.W. to improve public spaces and enhance connections for people walking, wheeling and taking transit. 26 Avenue S.W. connects eight communities, including nine schools and over 50 businesses. Investing in improving infrastructure provides capacity to support growth and change in the southwest communities.
Buckmaster Park Area Improvements: Buckmaster Park, located between 21 Avenue S.W. and 23 Avenue S.W., will be the centrepiece of upgraded public realm improvements in Bankview. The project’s focus will be to increase activity in the park, upgrade existing amenities, and improve connectivity within the surrounding neighbourhood.
Engagement opportunity to provide feedback The 26 Avenue S.W. Improvements and the Buckmaster Park Area Improvements will be hosting online engagement at engage.calgary.ca/buckmaster26 from July 12 to August 3 with virtual drop-in open house on July 28, 2021, 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. Calgarians can sign up on Microsoft Teams for the virtual event.
