Blanket Rezoning is not the answer to Calgary's Housing Shortage.

Blanket rezoning is not the right solution to address Calgary’s housing challenges. It poses a significant risk to communities:


driving up the level of congestion in neighbourhood 
putts strain on infrastructure and service quality.
destruction of community character
can affect property values
environmental concerns

Oppose this approach and advocate for a more community-focused strategy to respond to Calgary's housing shortage, shifting the focus away from a generalized housing crisis to the housing supply crisis that blanket zoning will make worse.
Please sign the petition that the community of West Hillhurst has put forth. This is a short term problem that will lead to bigger problems.
