A Vibrant, Safe Intersection

A Joyous Noise - Dueling Street Pianos!

It can be hard to compete with the noise from the C-Trains, but that shouldn't stop us from trying! Public pianos on at least two corners of the intersection means that more people could hear the pianos being played over the sound of the trains when they are present, and could create friendly 'dueling piano' interactions and spontaneous events when people are waiting for the next train to come along.

Voter Experience

Yum! Advanced Voting & Food Trucks

Add something delicious to the act of voting. Incorporate a food truck element into an advanced voting bus/truck so that participants get a bit of a perk for casting their ballot. Aligning this with advanced voting stations would be one way to help manage risk or regulations. (This idea is submitted on behalf of the participants of the Calgary Public Library IdeaLab Monthly Design challenge, which used this topic as... more »

Urban Beach

There are several locations along the river in Calgary that would make great spots for urban sand beaches. This would provide Calgarians with a place to access the river and gather during the summer months. Along the Eau Claire River Pathway just to the west of the Peace Bridge and helicoptor pad. This location is high enough to avoid future flooding, but close to the river and in a central location adjacent to downtown... more »

Free wifi on Calgary Transit

City of Calgary cTrains and buses should offer free wifi. The amount of morning and afternoon commuters that would be checking work emails would contribute to the economy, it would encourage transit ridership and the City could use the channel to promote things such as transit apps, low income assistance programs, bus pass reminders, etc.

Leverage the high smart phone market penetration and low barrier to entry for mobile and web app development to create a multiplatform ride requesting application. Use built in GPS and location knowledge to... more »

Food Trucks

We have plus 15 but the food trucks can't access these areas. The airport has elevator trucks that could be converted to food trucks and then certain suitable spots could be found to serve people on the bridges or plazas from trucks parked below.

CityService

I have an idea for a much easier way to report municipal issues using a Mobile App. Do you have a municipal issue to report? Did you fall into a pothole when driving this morning? Pick your smartphone and report it with three taps! The app provides an extremely easy channel to report municipal issues across city’s partner agencies on one common platform, without having to find out which agency is responsible for the... more »
