Flood Mitigation Measures Assessment

The City of Calgary has developed a comprehensive suite of mitigation measures through a consultative, citizen-focused approach. The next step in this is to provide citizens across Calgary with public events where they can share their thoughtful and informed opinions on proposed flood mitigation projects. The information gathered at these events will form recommendations being brought to Council in early 2017.
