For the pedestrian and cycling realm activity, we're starting with a map exercise. Share your opinion about where you think a pedestrian or cycling space could be changed to be better or safer. This could be a back lane, park pathway or cycling path on a roadway. If you have ideas for green space that are not related to pathways, please visit the map and survey activities, but if you have a great idea that we didn't mention, please add it!

  • Add your idea (Is your pedestrian/cycling idea not here? Add it - this could be anything!)
  • Improved connections between/to parks (Within Dalhousie or to other communities)
  • Better pathway connections (ie: could paths inside or outside of the community connect more effectively?)
  • Pedestrian and bicycle safety issue (IE: unmarked intersection, bad line of sight)
  • Better lighting
  • Better maintenance (IE: snow, ice, mowing, weeding)

To access the activity, click on the 'Pedestrian and Cycling Realm' logo to the right. This will bring you to the map page where you will click on the plus sign on the top left-hand side of the map to begin dropping pins. If you have any questions or need help getting the activity to work, please feel free to email us.

Hello Dalhousie residents,

First, we would like to thank you for the opportunity to work together with the residents of Dalhousie on solutions that benefit the future of the community.

As students from the University of Calgary, it is our goal to work with your community to explore planning solutions that are relevant to your lives. We are eager to work with everyone to develop possible solutions for these issues in a report that will be presented at the end of the process.

In addition, we are also looking forward to learning more about Dalhousie’s history and get a sense for your collective aspirations for the community’s future. Finally, we hope to develop an understanding of how the COVID-19 situation has affected members of the community, and how these changes could impact future planning decisions in the community.

Thank you,

Melody and Travis
