Main Street Initiative -Revisited
Calgary’s Municipal Development Plan began a movement in the fall of 2014 to reshape the city with community oriented vibrant main street corridors. The Main Streets Initiative recognizes 24 transportation corridors needing revitalization to accommodate the future growth of the city (read WebStamp Article – June 07, 2016). After organizing 2 years of input from Calgarians, work has begun on 7 priority areas in helping connecting and creating vibrant communities.
Until May 1st, 2017 your input on the Main Street Initiative project for Calgary’s first Main Street is encouraged.
You can give your improvement ideas on the website, but strolling down 9th Ave. SE and searching out the Snapcodes on the sidewalk stickers is much more enjoyable. I like the fact that while actually experiencing the unique atmosphere of the 9th Ave, you can have a say on its development.
Anyone can be part of WebStamps Make A Difference Movement by simply connecting with Calgary’s roots and enjoying a memorable outing discovering one of the city’s many unique communities. By voicing your opinion, you make a difference that reflects in the decisions made in improving our communities and way of life.
Go out and enjoy the heart of the communities, the hubs that defines our culture, where we socialize having coffee with friends, grab a bite to eat, or make purchases from unique shops. You can also relish in the fact that you helped stimulate the local economy by prospering local merchants. Check out Calgary’s Engage website to find out other civic projects where they are looking for input from Calgarians. These can be other wonderful outings exploring Calgary’s unique communities where you can Make A Difference for the betterment of all.
Make your M.A.D. Move and become part of WebStamp’s Make A Difference (M.A.D.) Movement through appreciating Calgary’s Main Streets, our community hubs.
