Where will people live and work?
The maps below show the distribution of where people might live when the next million residents are in the Calgary Metro Region.
Scenario 1 shows how growth would happen if today’s mix of land uses and densities continue, and there is no major expansion of transit in the region.
Scenario 2 shows how growth would happen if much more of our future growth is infill development, creating higher density development, particularly in urban centres like Calgary.
Scenario 3 shows how growth could happen in higher density clusters around future transit stations and city or town centres. This scenario would require major regional transit extensions (bus rapid transit or light rail transit) to Airdrie, Chestermere, Cochrane and Rocky View County.
When you think about the Calgary Metro Region growing to include a million more residents, what kind of development would you like to see take place to support that growth?
Where would you like to see an increase in jobs and housing?
