The spotlight is on public transportation in the Town of Chestermere. In conjunction with a transit feasibility study, a public consultation program is underway to acquire citizen feedback about potential regional transit system in Chestermere. The Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP) is leading the consultation efforts as part of its regional transit plan. With the fifth fastest growing municipal centre in Canada (2011 Census – Statistics Canada), a form of public transportation could be significant for Chestermere in the next ten to fifteen years and beyond. Public participation towards a potential regional transit system is essential for success.
The CRP’s public consultation team has been busy in the community, attending the Town’s Winterfest on January 19, 2013 and recently hosting a regional transit open house for residents on February 4, 2013. In addition, the team has developed an on-line engagement forum to ensure residents can have their say about regional/public transit in their community. The poster boards from the open house can be seen below. Moving forward, the CRP team will continue to work with the Town to ensure as many Chestermere residents can contribute to the transportation discussion. All future public consultation activities will be posted on the website (www.talkchestermere.ca)
