Share your thoughts on welcoming the next million residents to the Calgary Region

CMRB P2 Poster - digital

CMRB P2 Poster - digitalWe’ve heard from people across the region about what is important to them about planning for the next million residents in the Calgary Metro Region. “The Town of High River appreciates everyone who took the opportunity to share their views on how this region can grow to meet future needs during the first round of engagement,” says High River Mayor Craig Snodgrass. “It is vitally important that all stakeholders – residents, business owners and developers – share their opinions. I encourage everyone in the High River area to take part and contribute to the plan to make this a thriving, world class area.”


The next round of engagement on the regional growth plan is happening from November 5 – 27, 2020. “I’m grateful for the rigorous community engagement process that’s been developed for the CMRB Regional Growth Plan. As this next phase begins and our residents learn more about the proposed scenario, we’ll be encouraging our communities to share their input once again. I know that by welcoming feedback at many points in the process we’re developing a plan that truly reflects the needs of our region,” said Town of Strathmore Mayor Pat Fule. 


Public input helped to shape the proposed approach for managing growth in the Region and now we’re asking the public to share their views on how the proposed approach may be implemented. “The idea of all regional communities working together, strongly, with a shared vision to make our region the most robust, most prosperous, and economically viable, is long overdue. Working with our neighbours, whether over a fence or across municipal boundaries, is critical to building healthy communities and prosperous regions. The proposed regional growth scenario is one step towards a solid plan for the Calgary region and we invite residents to share their feedback on this scenario. Together, we can create a plan that will ensure the long term success of all 10 communities in the Calgary region,” said Mayor  Marshall Chalmers of Chestermere.


The CMRB wants to hear from Albertans living and working in the Calgary Metro Region to share their thoughts on the proposed approach for the region. Help to shape the plan for implementation and policy development. “As we continue to work on developing a regional growth plan for the Calgary Metro Region, we need to ensure that the voices of Cochrane residents and business owners are heard,” said Mayor Genung, Town of Cochrane. “The growth plan will support the long-term economic, environmental and social-well being of the region. The updated draft suggests where infrastructure investments will be made and where further residential, commercial and industrial development will occur. This plan impacts us all. Ensure your voice is heard.”


The CMRB invites Albertans to visit calgarymetroregion.ca to join the conversation online at www.calgarymetroregion.ca.


“ Good planning and infrastructure investment is required to effectively and efficiently accommodate another one million people in the Calgary region over the next 50 years. The well thought out decisions we make today will ensure that the Calgary region continues to be a location of choice well into the future,” said Airdrie Mayor Peter Brown.
