The Future Layers of Dalhousie Report

Between March and April, 2021, University of Calgary School of Architecture Planning and Landscape students Zhuxuan (Melody) Ma and Travis Dickie researched for and prepared a report on our community as a capstone project to their studies. This included a four-month engagement and visioning process developed in cooperation with residents of Dalhousie and with participation of the Dalhousie Community Association (“DCA”) in helping to promote the project and providing community association perspectives. Though not a statutory or city-driven, this report provides some great insight into what some of our residents value in the community and would like to see in the future in relation to development, transportation and overall community building. Ultimately, the report provides a concept for a three-node distribution of interconnected community amenities in west Dalhousie (centered on the Community Center), in east Dalhousie (centered on the DCA’s Dallyn Street building, site of the proposed community garden) and in the LRT station area. The Future Layers of Dalhousie has been a useful tool for various committees of the DCA in identifying projects to better our community and in helping inform feedback on proposed developments in our community.
