A Master Plan for St. Patrick’s Island

You talked, we listened. After five months of gathering public feedback with some 5,000 Calgarians through island tours, online surveys, focus groups and idea studios, CMLC will unveil the draft St. Patrick’s Island Master Plan in January 2011.

One of two on-line surveys included visual preferences questions where the public matched pictures to possibilities for the island. And we hosted public studios, where people literally drew their ideas, providing a canvas for CMLC to work from.

When we had all the input in hand, we set up an advisory committee composed of stakeholder groups to provide guidance on the material.

To all of you who shared your ideas, we offer a huge thank you. When the draft master plan is launched in mid-January, a third public survey will be launched to gather public response. CMLC will host more public information sessions as the new year progresses.
