Calgarians will soon be subjected to constant construction in one of its oldest neighborhoods, Victoria Park. Civic politicians and planners are generally ecstatic about the changes, however, there are many critics who aren’t as optimistic.
The initial phase of the Green Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) has been approved by Calgary city council in a 12-3 vote on May 15. The project has significantly decreased in size and increased in price, leaving some citizens and their representatives unhappy.
The 12th Street S.E. Bridge linking Inglewood and the Calgary Zoo, originally designed for horse and buggy transportation when it was built back in 1908, and until recently heavily used by vehicles and pedestrians, is finally being replaced.
It’s been three and a half years since the Calgary floods, and with the support of City Council a new River Access Strategy will be implemented over the next few years to improve safety and accessibility for Calgarians.
