Open house: Future concepts for Anderson LRT StationThe City is looking for residents input on the future of Anderson Station.
The Office of Land Servicing and Housing (OLSH) will be at Southcentre Mall today from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. to share the latest information with Calgarians regarding transit oriented development at Anderson Station.
"Last year, we had hundreds of citizens participate in our public engagement process where they were asked to provide input into four concepts that showed different options for what the 20-acre site could look like in the future," said John Potts, manager, Land Servicing, OLSH. At last years' event City staff collected citizens comments through conversations, surveys and even social media. That gathered input is what will be shown on display at Southcentre today.
"Following citizen feedback, we're now back to show the public a single concept for the Anderson land," said Potts. "Among its primary features, the proposed concept will provide enhanced linkages between the station and surrounding communities, be a destination that incorporates a mix of higher density uses, and provide open spaces that will be convenient for pedestrian, cycling and transit connections."
The City is working with Urban Design Associates, a firm out of Pittsburgh. The plan is to revitalize the area around Anderson station enhancing accessibility and usability for surrounding communities and transit users.
