Is your neighbourhood Calgary’s best? Vote for it!

If you love your community (or a community you don’t live in), Avenue Magazine‘s 2018 Calgary’s Best Neighbourhood survey is now open. Every year, Avenue Magazine runs this survey to get an idea of what neighbourhood qualities are important to Calgary, and ranks our city’s communities based upon that information.

Results start with a survey that asks Calgarians about what is most valuable in a neighbourhood. Are safety and large yards important to you? Do you want to live close to downtown? Which amenities do you care most about? Your opinion on those factors helps us determine the definition of “best.”

We take that criteria, as well as information on crime statistics, property value, access to amenities and more, and give that information to our partners at Leger Marketing. They crunch the numbers and rank Calgary’s best neighbourhoods.

The top ten neighbourhoods from 2017 were:

  • Varsity
  • Beltline
  • Edgemont
  • Brentwood
  • Signal Hill
  • Huntington Hills
  • Bridgeland/Riverside
  • Arbour Lake
  • Downtown
  • Crescent Heights

If your favourite community didn’t make the list last year, now’s your chance to help it get on the top 10 (or at least the top 50). You can complete the survey online, it takes about ten minutes. We’re curious, what’s your favourite part of the community you live in? Share with us on Twitter.
