Making a brownfield greenNovember 19, 2015
Brownfield sites, areas where former commercial or industrial buildings often existed, can remain vacant for years because of suspected contamination to the land. Our Green Building Technologies team wants to know what you would do with the brownfield property by the Heritage LRT station. They'll be surveying Calgary Transit customers at the station on Thursday, Nov. 19 from 6 - 10 a.m. and Friday, Nov. 20 from 3 - 7 p.m.
"The City of Calgary approached our team to conduct a feasibility report to learn how Calgarians would like the space used. They don't want it to remain empty," explained Aja Horsley, principal investigator. "The results from the survey will help the City determine how to move forward. We will be advising on how space could be used in a sustainable, environmentally friendly manner."
Some of the questions participants will be asked include the type of vendors they'd like to see (i.e. restaurants, cafés) and amenities they would prefer (i.e. a dog park) if the area was revitalized.
