Our City.Our Budget.Our Future.
On 2011 November 29, Council approved the 2012-2014 business plans and budgets. This was accomplished thanks to over 23,000 Calgarians who took the opportunity to learn more about The City's plans, how we use our revenues and thoughtfully shared with us their ideas on what priorities we should consider from 2012 to 2014.
To honour The City's commitment to continue its conversation with Calgarians, calgary.ca/ourfuture was launched on June 12, 2012. This site contains information and links designed to give Calgarians information regarding the approved 2012 – 2014 business plans and budgets so you could become more informed on what The City is focusing its efforts towards, how we are spending tax and capital dollars, and to give you a forum to talk directly with The City and each other.
The priority for citizen engagement at this time was to discover if Calgarians' priorities had changed since Council deliberation in 2011, if outside events had changed or shifted (e.g. economic conditions) from your perspective, and if The City was doing a good job in meeting the expectations laid out in the 2012 – 2014 business plans and budgets.
The June engagement results are in and we want to thank everyone who has visited and shared their ideas and opinions with us. It is only by understanding your priorities that we can ensure the services we provide meet your needs.
