Calgary's new downtown plan seeks to benefit current residents, and attract new ones

You can always go downtown. At least that's what the song says.

Much has been written about the current woes of Calgary's Downtown Commercial Core. Office vacancies are approaching 30 per cent and many businesses and commuters are conspicuous in their absence from the area.

The grassroots organization advocates for upstream mitigation to protect thousands of homeowners across Calgary.
