40th AVE. Future LRT station Workshop - Please RSVP to attend

You are INVITED to the 40th AVE N LRT STATION WORKSHOP!

Location:
Centre Street Church West Campus
4120 Centre St. N.E. Calgary


YOU ARE ASKED TO RSVP:

which will be held at the Centre St Church West Campus, go to:
engage.calgary.ca/greenline/north/40-ave-tod-workshop/events

You can also provide your input online, whether you attend in person or not.
To provide feedback online, go to this link:
engage.calgary.ca/greenline/north/40-ave-tod-workshop/online


There will be a 4 day Transit Oriented Development (TOD) workshop taking place between October 17 and 22. This workshop is also known as a Design Charette. A charette is a multi-day, collaborative planning workshop led by a consultant team that brings together citizens, area business owners, developers, and policy makers to create a plan for the area surrounding the future LRT station that will be located at Centre St and 40 Ave N.

The intent is to create a plan for the station and the possibilities for development in the area around it that is feasible and that supports the community. You'll be able to contribute to building the future of your community -- both of the actual station and what type of buildings, businesses, and other infrastructure will surround it in future.

This is where community voices can be heard, and as per City Council's motion on July 5 in regards to the development of the golf course, we can "ensure coordination with the Green Line project."

Day 1 - Issues: Mon Oct 17 - 6:30 to 9:00 pm
Day 2 - Ideas: Tues Oct 18 - 6:30 to 9:00 pm (limited spots)
Day 3 - Concepts: Thur Oct 20 - 6:30 to 9:00 pm
Day 4 - Solutions: Sat Oct 22 - noon to 2:00 pm
