APPI Webinar - Re-imagining Downtown: Calgary’s Greater Downtown Plan

Thursday, March 10   12:00 - 1:00 PM

The revitalization of communities’ downtowns has become a hot topic over the last several years, and in particular over the last two years, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and residents transitioning to working from home. Significant efforts have gone into transforming Calgary’s downtown into a great place to work, play, and live.

Join us as Thom Mahler, RPP, the Director of The City of Calgary’s new Downtown Strategy Business Unit, shares his experiences and lessons learned in the preparation of the Greater Downtown Plan and actions that have been implemented thus far.
