Breaking Ground: A Fused Grid Neighbourhood in Calgary
This highlight looks at a model for planning sustainable neighbourhoods — the Fused Grid — which blends desirable elements of conventional and grid-based street layouts. It gives priority to walking and cycling and prevents through traffic at the neighbourhood scale. Using an approved subdivision plan for a new Calgary neighbourhood — Saddleton, it reviews the issues that relate to the successful application of the model in Canada, including design considerations, guiding principles, site constraints, the process of reviews and approvals, and more.
