January 23, 2014 — SETWAY (10 year/$520 million Transit Plan) Open House

I am hosting a workshop on January 23, 2014, at 7:00 pm to talk about Council’s decision to dedicate 10 years of the $52 million (2015-2024) tax surplus for the Green Line.  $400 million of this will go directly to the Southeast Transitway (SETWAY).  It would have been nearly impossible for the City to raise enough money to kick-start the Southeast LRT.  This decision ensures that Southeast Calgary will have significant improvements in Transit service in the short term while laying the groundwork for an eventual LRT in the long term.

I will also talk about SETWAY – What is SETWAY? How will look? What parts of the line could see progress as early as 2014? What are the benefits of SETWAY?

Please join me, as well as City officials, at the Shepard Community Association – 10800 84 Street SE.

If you need help with directions or have any questions about this event, please email me at cclward12@calgary.ca.

Look forward to meeting you.
