The Future of 16 Avenue NW: Community Engagement

 

16 Avenue N.W. has a dual nature as both a major city-wide transportation corridor and as a community Main Street that has successfully nurtured a local commercial core in Montgomery for decades. 

The 16 Avenue N.W. corridor from Sarcee Trail to Crowchild Trail requires a coherent planning effort due to the widely variable nature of the corridor today, with differing road classifications, land use, posted speed limits, number of lanes, accommodation of transit and active modes, and levels of planning and construction in recent years. Provision of additional capacity and long-term build-out of the roadway to three core lanes in each direction is expected to fulfill 16 Avenue N.W.’s role as a primary transportation and goods movement corridor, and to support area growth.

The 16 Avenue N.W. Main Street streetscape design project will incorporate what is most important today and in the future about the main street experience with a focus on place making and community building and enhancement.

As there is significant overlap in the two study boundaries and timing for engagement, the two projects are being closely coordinated and aligned.

Lil' Pantry and Lil' Library at Maranatha Church 

We are excited to share that “Lil’ Pantry” and “Lil’ Library” boxes have been installed on the front lawn of Maranatha near the street and public river pathway. The pantry box is for non-perishable food items and the library is for all kinds of books. These are for anyone in the community to access, both for sharing and/or for receiving!

City of Calgary Police "9 PM Routine" 

We are encouraging Calgarians to establish a '9 p.m. Routine' to help secure your property before heading to bed. 

Property crime, including break and enters, car prowlings and auto thefts, continues to affect citizens across the city. Over the summer months, residential break and enters increase by 20 per cent. In many cases, simply locking up and taking the opportunity away from offenders is enough to stop the crime. So far this year, offenders have only needed to force entry in 34 per cent of residential break and enters. As well, 50 per cent of all residential break and enters occurred overnight, creating a significant safety concern for residents and their families who could be home sleeping.
