I guess at this point I need to point out again that just last Wednesday the LRT citizens jury held their first public presentation and Q&A by the director of Calgary Transit on the challenges and opportunities of LRT (including for street and urban design) at Mohawk College, in TW's ward.

And as Ryan highlights in the article, the residents of Kirkendall are just asking for Aberdeen to be re-designed to match the way many similar minor arterials have been re-designed in the suburbs.

It really shouldn't be so controversial!

After all people from Ward 1 need to drive on the mountain all the time (e.g. to get to Limeridge, Meadowlands or their jobs at the suburban business parks), but they don't demand a veto over street design. In fact, I don't remember any real council discussion or public outreach at all on those projects. They were completely uncontroversial.
