Zone 2 and 3, in the upper left, are the ones in our community.

The City of Calgary is launching a “Main Streets Initiative,” to promote positive development along 24 identified mixed-use roadways that serve as community hubs, including two in Montgomery (Bowness Road and 16th Avenue).  The initiative starts with city planners learning about the needs of neighbourhoods around those hubs and analyzing economic data, to identify “success criteria for future growth in these areas.”

There will be a workshop with city planners here in Montgomery on February 11, from 7-9 pm, at the community centre.  For more details click here.   This is an important opportunity to have a voice in the future of Montgomery and the MCA encourages residents to come out, even if just for a few minutes, or to check out the online survey, click here.
