Our first 100K Day in the fall of 2016 was so successful that we are planning another. Mark your calendar for May 3, 2017 and plan to stop by City Hall from 12 noon to 6 pm. Get information about upcoming City projects, learn about programs and services and share your ideas on how to shape the future of Lethbridge.
Lethbridge is inching closer to becoming a city of 100,000 people. This milestone offers a unique moment to reflect on how we grow, protect the environment, celebrate our past and plan for the future.
100K Day will include opportunities to chat and learn about:
- Proposed future transit routes and facilities
- 7th Avenue Bike Boulevard
- West Lethbridge growth
- Lethbridge Animal Shelter
- Legacy Park design
- Recreation and Culture programs & activities
- Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
- Waste & Recycling Programs
- Community projects currently on the go
100K Day - Fall 2016
This community engagement event attracted over 300 residents, gathering important feedback on numerous City projects. More than 200 resident feedback forms were collected and complied into a report.
- During 100K Day, artist Drew Ferrari sat with residents and sketched out their thoughts and ideas for the future to Lethbridge.
- The 100K Day Sounding Board was a place participants could give their opinions on various topics related to the future of Lethbridge.
Based on the fact that Lethbridge is nearing 100K population, 100K Day was an opportunity for City staff to talk with residents about what they would like to see as the city grows.
The event was hosted at City Hall with 10 exhibitors displaying various City projects as well as public presentations on the Transit Master Plan, Cycling Master Plan and River Valley Master Plan.
From those attending, 98 per cent were in favour of having another 100K Day. Due to this positive feedback, City staff are planning a second 100K Day in the spring of 2017.
