Calgarians can have say on bridge designs

And then there were three.

Calgarians will have their voices heard on what the future St. Patrick’s Bridge, spanning the Bow River, will look like as the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) posted the final three designs online for public comment.

“We felt it was tremendously important to give Calgarians the opportunity to review the final submissions and share their thoughts with us,” CMLC president and CEO Chris Ollenberger said.

“We’ve worked to keep our process open and transparent since day one and we continue to encourage people to be a part of it.”

One Calgary submission and two others remain after being whittled down from 33 last November and the respective teams will present their designs to the committee on Feb. 26.

“All three of our finalists have presented magnificent designs that are both functional and compliment the natural beauty of the water but each has a unique vision for the bridge.”

Calgarians are invited to share their comments online at www.calgarymlc.ca and also are invited to a Feb. 25 public presentation to discuss the pieces at the Telus Convention Centre.

The new bridge is set to cost approximately $25 million.
