DownTown West Community Association
Downtown West is home to citizens, businesses, artists and sports enthusiasts working together to build a vibrant, safe and inclusive community.
Improve the livability of Calgary Downtown West through improvements in community amenities and public safety through collective action and a strong voice to City Hall.
In recent years, Downtown West has experienced a significant amount of residential development. However, it stands as an "island" at the west end of the Centre City, lacking the qualities of amenity and integration that would provide a stronger sense of identity.
Downtown West, although strong in its adjacency to the Bow River, it is not well-connected for pedestrian movements to the Bow riverfront, surrounding neighbourhoods, and Downtown. The substantial amount of east-west vehicular movements bisect the neighbourhood - therefore we are not yet fully achieving the components of an integrated neighbourhood.
