12 Avenue Underground Is The Best Option for The Beltline and Downtown Calgary
The Green Line LRT presents an exciting opportunity to make Calgary’s most dense and urban neighbourhoods better serviced by public transit. The best option for the Beltline comes down to the accessibility of the Green Line to all the people, businesses and important places in the Beltline, and the positive integration with existing travel modes in what is already a challenging environment for mobility.
The Beltline Neighbourhoods Association is deeply concerned that 12 Avenue underground is being prematurely removed as an option and is asking the City to continue to investigate this potential alignment.
Any Beltliner will tell you one of the best parts of living in the Beltline is its walkability. Feel like a coffee? Need to pick up some groceries? Showing off amazing public art to your friends? There’s so much within walking distance many people in our community don’t even own cars.
Today we are pleased to announce the launch of the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association.
We are a vibrant new community association for the Beltline district in urban Calgary encompassing the neighbourhoods of West Connaught, Connaught Centre, Victoria Centre and East Victoria.
