The City of Calgary Action Plan 2015-2018 is everyone’s opportunity to help shape Calgary’s future. From roads to recreation centres, from flood response to City finances, what is important to you?
From March 3 to 21, we are asking for citizen and community input on balancing quality City services with affordable tax rates. Action Plan is running in-person public engagements in every City Ward during this period with 20 events over 18 days.
And starting March 3, Calgarians can have their say online in three different ways:
- Budget Simulator: consider City services and make some tough choices on spending priorities, based on the impacts to service that each scenario presents.
- City Priorities tool: Tell us what are the important priorities The City should focus on for the next four years
- CityTalk: an open forum, where you can submit ideas, comments, thoughts on City spending, priorities, budget, or anything else. Other citizens can comment and vote on submitted ideas, or start another thread of discussion themselves.
Citizen engagement is a key input into Action Plan 2015 – 2018. We will review all input that is received. A detailed summary of all ideas and suggestions will be given to Council and City departments for consideration as Council priorities, business plans and budgets are being developed during 2014. As well, a summary of citizen engagement will be announced publicly in April and shared on the Action Plan website. We look forward to your input March 3 to 21, 2014!
