Make a reliable and functional alternative transportation system

While Calgary has dedicated significant resources to automobile transportation, any other way to get around our great city is a dismal failure, especially during our long winters. I would like to see a transit system that is dependable, comfortable, and doesn't break down on a daily basis, especially for predictable events, such as weather. I would like to see bicycle lanes that are contiguous and connected, and don't... more »

Street Parking

No matter the season, street parking can be a major pain, particularly to those who live in apartments or houses on those streets. In February alone, we had two snow route parking bans that resulted in nearly 5,000 parking tickets being issued. The only reason I knew about the ban is that I happened to be listening to the radio. Street parking can also be an issue in the spring when the city is doing street cleaning.... more »

Citizen Polling

Develop a polling system, using blockchain technology, to actively poll citizens on hot topics. This idea could be integrated into council meetings and would be split up by ward, giving greater refinement of requirements to communities. By using blockchain technology the votes would be anonymous and transparent, open to all for data analytics.

Calgary Smart Energy Grid Netowrk

Calgary when looking to become a smart city needs to look at creating a network that can help us manage city systems and help deliver power and other services to the population. This network would need to be secure and run outside the regular consumer internet network.

Temperature, Wind and Pollution Modelling and Monitoring Grid

Establish a city-wide network of sensors that continuously report wind, temperature, humidity, pressure and pollution (CO2, CO, N2S, O3) levels to a public data archive. Hundreds of these sensors would be installed across all city neighbourhoods and at various heights downtown to create a public, live and historic 24x7x365 super-density 3D model of Calgary's environment and climate.

BUILDING A HEALTHIER FUTURE OF OPPORTUNITIES

Every year the dream of hundreds of kids get frustrated by not having a chance to follow their passion and become a doctor in the city of Calgary. With limited spaces in the university, students are being discouraged even if they follow all the recommendations (volunteer hours, job related, academic excellence) As the city grows the demand for professional care does too. However, the school of medicine has not grown at... more »

Simple public amenities

There are lots of big ideas out there, but when it comes to having a good life in the city, it starts with the little everyday things that make it easier and more comfortable to be out and about in the city. You know what I'm talking about: we desperately need more public bathrooms scattered about Calgary's parks and public spaces, and we need more of them to be open year-round. (More trash and recycling bins would be... more »

Become Canadian leaders in dementia care

Create dementia villages with services, amenities and environments that provide an alternative to hospitalization or institutionalization and provides full scope of support and care for all vulnerable dementia patients and their families. Nobody should suffer from dementia without the benefit of a caring community. Calgary can become a leader in giving people with dementia the dignity they deserve.

Smart city ideas.

Sidewalks wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs. Better place sidewalk ramps. Buses running more frequently, with a maximum wait time of 15 minutes. Less buttons to push to cross streets and more automatically changing lights going with the flow of traffic. Two types of city plows, one for roads and one to get rid of the snow pushed onto sidewalks but the plows plowing the roads. LRT stations and bridges that are all... more »

Understanding Air Quality

Imagine if every digital sign in the city was eager to share the current air quality. What if drivers could see the immediate impact there actions are having on the environment around them? I believe if we educated our citizens on how air quality fluctuates through our the day, like at drop off time at an elementary school people might change their behaviour.

Rejuvenation of old infrastructure that lacked funding

Making integration into Calgary easy by following due diligence, professional standards, approved processes and compliance in an transparent manor. Informational Asymmetry! The person paying for the service can't always take on the all of the risk from a lower position of power. A warranty of completing a transaction in good faith.
