I just read this interesting article/post on Next City about Calgary moving forward to be city of cycling and walking:

In 2014 alone, city council passed a Complete Streets Policy and approved a 3.4-mile cycle track network that will break ground in March. Now, building on a cycling strategy adopted in 2011, the transportation department will spend this year preparing a pedestrian strategy. It will focus on infrastructure like better lighting for underpasses, new overpasses near transit stations, and improved snow and ice removal.

“If 2014 was the year of cycling, then we’re focusing on a pedestrian strategy in 2015 because we recognize it as the most sustainable form of transportation,” says Joe Olson, manager of the Livable Streets Division.

There isn’t much to add, except: We are looking forward to it!
