From March 3 to 21, The City of Calgary is asking for citizen input on balancing quality city services with affordable tax rates. 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?
Find out about Action Plan events in your community at Calgary.ca/actionplan. This is a big conversation about a great city. Participate online or at an event, and have your say 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
- Discussion Forum: 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. 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.
