STEPHEN AVENUE: STUDYING PUBLIC LIFE + PUBLIC SPACE
October 1 – 9, 2018

The City of Calgary is undertaking a Master Plan for Stephen Avenue, with the intent of enhancing our city’s most iconic and memorable street. As one of Calgary’s premiere landmarks and destinations, a Master Plan is needed to:

  • Extend the energy and liveliness of the pedestrian mall westward along 8 Avenue S.W.;
  • Establish a new vision for Stephen Avenue that creates opportunities for private investment and redevelopment;
  • Create short and long-term strategies that can be implemented over time to make Stephen Avenue better for Calgarians and visitors.

As a first step, The City is reaching out to citizens, stakeholders and visitors to better understand the public life and public space of Stephen Avenue. We want to know what people enjoy or like about the Avenue, what could be improved, and what the opportunities are. We’ll be studying the public realm, engaging with citizens, and discussing a broad range of topics including: activities and events, public safety, social issues, economic vitality, mobility, history and placemaking.

In the middle of the desert, a town comes to life. The Saloon doors swing open to reveal a motley cast of individuals, each with a tale to tell.

In Cirque Éloize’s Saloon, the timeless tunes of Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline set the traditional, epic scene for a fast-paced show with no shortage of audience thrills.
