Eau Claire 'sounding board' seeks public input on green space use
City will hold consultation in autumn with construction in green space expected to start in early 2015
The City of Calgary is looking for public input on what to do with green space near the Peace Bridge.
Two major condo developments are planned nearby, but the stretch of pathway between Eau Claire and the 10th Street bridge is becoming more and more popular with Calgarians.
The city is asking whether it's time to do something with the green space and has set up a "sounding board" near the Peace Bridge for people to share their thoughts.
"It could be additional space for cyclists, it could be a community garden, a place for dogs," said Greg Stewart, the city's project manager for the initiative.
"It could be playgrounds. It could be active play space. It could be passive."
People can leave their ideas on the sounding board or post them to an online map.
The city will also hold other consultations this fall.
Construction on the condo developments could start as early as 2015.
