Plan Together - Northern Hills | 2021

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Welcome!

We are a group of planning students from the University of Calgary who are working together with the Northern Hills Community Association to collect feedback from residents. Our goal is to encourage greater social connection and to seek design solutions to the challenges posed by COVID-19.

We invite you to collaborate with us as we try to imagine a new pathway project for the community. All your ideas will go towards a proposal for improving walking and open space in Northern Hills.

On this page, you can keep track of our workshop dates, complete activities, and share your stories.

Please make sure to check back as this project progresses! More announcements will be made through the Northern Hills Community Association's newsletter and social media.

    Mixed feelings about Northern Hills

    by calgarymac, 3 months ago
    We have lived in Panorama Hills for 13 years. We really like our house and it's location within the community. Access to the rest of the city and outside the city has improved significantly since the completion of Stoney Trail in our area. Transit is difficult as the routes to downtown are crowded from the end of the line to downtown. The Green Line LRT has been long delayed and I don't see the city doing its best to start the line let alone complete it. An LRT would greatly improve transportation in this area.

    Feeling safe, neighbourhood walks, and keeping an eye on community health

    by wyyhuang, 3 months ago

    What I like about my community:

    by Andrea, 3 months ago
    I enjoy watching the wildflowers change on the Nose Hill Escarpment by the Country Hills Golf Course. We have many photos of the first spring crocuses, then their fuzzy heads, and I keep returning to see the procession of prairie smoke, buffalo beans, Solomon's seal, wild roses, fleabanes, gaillardia, yarrow, asters, and seeding grasses. It's just a little bit of native prairie, but it helps me feel like I'm a little closer to the original earth.
