Talking with communities about engagement

Welcome to the Calgary community association engagement site!



Stage 1 is now closed!

Thank you to everyone that participated in this first stage. I have reached out to the selected communities and will be starting the interview process in June.

On this site we will be exploring your community's experience in community engagement. The goal of the research is to create a community engagement toolkit that will support your community association when faced with urban planning and development projects needing engagement.

The project began by having participants complete the interview selection form. This form was used to determine which communities to involve in the Stage 2 interviews. If your community was not selected for Stage 2, we will look to have you involved during the Stage 3 workshops!

The intention for the research is to understand how information on a planning and development project was received and the conversations that took place in your community about that project. There are many different ways how information can be shared, as well as received, and it is important to find a balance to ensure that community members are given the equal opportunities to participate in public engagement as it relates to urban planning projects impacting their communities.

If you have a story to share, questions to ask the researcher, or would like to start a discussion, please use the tabs below to provide your feedback. All information gathered will be used for research purposes.

The research for this project has been approved by the CFREB (REB20-1552).

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete this Interview Selection Form. Your contribution is greatly appreciated! The questions below look at whether your community is experiencing, has experienced, or may experience community engagement as it relates to urban planning projects. The engagement can be anything from notification of a discretionary development permit to participating in workshops to attending town hall meetings. The results from this form will be used towards the selection process for the Stage 2 interviews. We are looking to select communities that represent a number of qualities in Calgary. If your community is not selected, we will contact you to provide input and feedback for the Stage 3 Workshops. 

      

    The research for this project has been approved by the Conjoint Faculties Research Ethics Board (REB20-1552) through the University of Calgary. You can find the consent form under the Documents tab; this will provide more details on how the data collected will be managed. The first question of this questionnaire asks whether you agree to consent to this project. 


    Following the survey, Becky will conduct interviews with interested community's to further discuss the planning projects that have taken place in their communities. If you are interested, please respond 'yes' in the survey and provide your email address.
