Upcoming Guidebook 101 Sessions

The City is providing a couple of opportunities to learn more about the Guidebook and its application, at Guidebook 101 sessions.

You can find the updated Guidebook for Great Communities (Guidebook) is now available for review at www.calgary.ca/guidebook. It is a policy document that combines existing policies, improved policies and new policies for community redevelopment and growth, all in one place. It provides communities a more inclusive and consistent way to plan for growth, while keeping Calgary and its communities on the map as one of most livable and welcoming cities in the world.
