Summary:
The City of Calgary is excited to share work on a new kind of policy that is being tested call the Neighbourhood Streets Pilot Policy. The goal is to create streets where neighbours of all ages and abilities can connect and have access to safe, comfortable travel options.
The new policy replaces Calgary’s 2003 Traffic Calming Policy and:

  • Reflects today’s values
  • Introduces new toolkits like resident-led activation or street labs
  • Explores opportunities for shared decision making
  • Calls for an equitable intake process
  • Looks for more opportunities to collaborate and find efficiencies

This presentation will give an overview of the policy approach, pilot projects and how recent engagement on the project outcomes will be incorporated to finalize the policy.
