Quotes from Calgarians

Do you think blanket rezoning will help with the affordable housing issue? Why/why not?

"I have not seen any rowhome units that are more affordable than the house/lots they consume, and because it will allow the more affordable houses/rentals to be teared down faster."

If you're against the blanket rezoning, what are some issues that you think could arise from this being implemented?

"Disenfranchised Calgarians, people being forced out of their communities, loss of culture and heritage, more supply for folks with above median incomes and reduced supply for folks with median and below incomes."

Quotes

"The overall presentation of the community is changing, traffic increasing where it's not been planned from the beginning. Schools and public services are not dimensioned for the extra population. It makes more sense to deliberately plan to build affordable housing in areas where the services can be expanded and the traffic situation handled."

"I believe it won't make things more "affordable". It poses a strain on residential parking, sewer systems, pipes, etc. Have we taken any of this into account? I don't believe this will fix the issue of affordable. Developers will swoop in and build these townhouses, duplexes, etc and jack the price up to sell. Creating more problems than it will solve."

"Possible parking issues. Old trees destroyed. Less green space. Much busier streets. Noisier neighbourhood. Less privacy with taller buildings. Less sunshine with taller buildings. Less space all around."

"It removes the community's ability to be engaged and consulted, and because it will not improve the housing affordability in any way, because no city who has blanket upzoned has seen improved affordability, because cost savings will not be passed on to house price because house price depends on location, because it impacts inner city neighbourhoods unfairly, and because added density should be properly planned."
