ITE Northern Alberta Section Luncheon: CITE Update and Calgary’s Pedestrian Strategy

November 2, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

CITE Update and Calgary’s Pedestrian Strategy
presented by Jen Malzer
108Calgary’s first pedestrian strategy was approved in 2016 and includes 49 actions to help make Calgary safer, more comfortable and interesting for walking. The strategy, called StepForward, is built on the concerns and opportunities for improvement, shared through public engagement by thousands of Calgarians. It helps direct the many existing programs by The City and our outside partners, while also identifying new priority areas. This presentation will give an overview of early initiatives including a street lab party that featured community built temporary pedestrian, biking (hay bale cycle tracks!) and placemaking to launch Calgary into its tactical urbanism program.
About the speaker:Jen Malzer is the current CITE president and pedestrian planner for The City of Calgary. She is a two-time graduate from the University of Manitoba where she studied heavy trucking before falling in love with walking, cycling and transit. Jen is a 20-year commuter cyclist and spent 4 years teaching The Transit City course at the University of Calgary. Some of her projects at the City of Calgary include the SW BRT concept study, North Central LRT corridor study and downtown subway review.  Jen’s not afraid of a little public engagement and is currently leading the development of Calgary’s tactical urbanism program.
