Building a Better Calgary
The current land area of Calgary is approximately the same as New York City, but with 1/10th the population. As the land area of Calgary expands to support increased housing, more services are needed to sustain these communities. With the inner city becoming more depopulated and schools sitting idle, building development permits in these neighborhoods are taking far too long to receive approval.
I support the following:
- Revitalizing mature neighborhoods by cutting building development red tape to allow for more density in Calgary’s downtown, while also improving community engagement to direct development. More inner city development brings more tax revenue to the City and brings people closer to amenities, transit, and the downtown core, all of which decreases the number of cars on the road and decreases our carbon footprint.
