The Citizens Commission on Municipal Infrastructure tackles the cost of growth in CalgaryReference Panels
Calgary is among the fastest-growing cities in North America, and leads Canada in population growth. As Calgary grows, the cost of building and maintaining municipal infrastructure is growing too. What infrastructure investments are needed to maintain a high quality of life in Calgary? How should residents, businesses, and users pay for the City’s expanding infrastructure needs? The Citizens Commission on Municipal Infrastructure brings together 36 randomly selected Calgarians over 6 Saturdays from September to November 2015 to answer these questions. The Commission will develop recommendations outlining the infrastructure priorities for residents of Calgary and the revenue tools the City could use to pay for them in a fair and sustainable manner. MASS LBP was contracted by the Calgary Chamber to design and host this important public process. To learn more, visit the Citizens Commission website.
