Dear Tenant/ Business Owner/ Property Manager

Re:    Cycle Track Network Pilot Project

The Cycle Track Network Pilot Project opened on June 18, 2015 and since that time we have been monitoring and making adjustments to the network where possible. Since opening, a number of stakeholders have raised concerns about the removal of parking on the west end of 8 Avenue, between 8 Street S.W. and 11 Street S.W. The City has reviewed these blocks and found that through modifying the existing design, we can introduce parking stalls on these blocks.

In the revised design, approximately 24 new parking stalls will be added to 8 Avenue between 8 Street S.W. and 11 Street S.W. as follows:

v  Eight stalls on the north side between 11 Street S.W. and 10 Street S.W

v  Seven stalls on the north side between 10 Street S.W. and 9 Street S.W.

v  Nine stalls on the south side between 9 Street S.W. and 8 Street S.W.

We will also be creating a handicap loading zone on the north side between 10 Street S.W. and 9 Street S.W. to allow easier access for clients accessing services on this block.

Additionally, we will be adding parking on the west side of 10 Street S.W. between 8 Avenue S.W. and 9 Avenue S.W. by modifying signage to allow parking along the entire block.

Timeline

Work is planned to begin Sunday, August 30 and is scheduled to be completed by Friday, September 4, weather permitting. Most activities will be completed overnight to minimize impact to traffic and will include some rolling detours. as work is completed on a block by block basis.

During construction the cycle track barriers will be removed to allow for new road markings and new concrete curbs to be installed. People cycling should ride with caution during construction since only temporary signs and road markings may be present. The barriers will be reinstalled once the new curbs and markings are in place.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we help build a better Calgary.

Sincerely,
