Part 3 of 3: What can Calgary learn from Edmonton’s WinterCity Strategy?

April 18, 2015

 

Calgarians don’t like to admit that Edmonton has us beat in some respects, but in terms of designing a city strategy that aims to create a vibrant, well-functioning winter city, we think Calgary could take a few pointers from our rival to the North.

 

Edmonton’s WinterCity Strategy

 

The City of Edmonton’s WinterCity Strategy explores the potential that winter can offer the city’s residents, businesses, industry and visitors in terms of creating a more inviting, vibrant and prosperous city during the winter. From street hockey tournaments and signature winter drinks to building public gathering places designed to capture sunlight and block the wind, the City of Edmonton aims to create a more vibrant and authentically Edmonton winter city by focusing on 10 goals that call for social, cultural and economic change.
