Love your community? Vote for it as Calgary’s Best Neighbourhood

If you love your community (or a community you don’t live in), Avenue Magazine is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Calgary’s Best Neighbourhood list. 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.

But putting all that aside for a moment, this is our data-driven approach to ranking the 185 residential neighbourhoods of Calgary. What makes a neighbourhood the perfect place for you to live is a matter of personal taste. But what makes a neighbourhood a great place to live for most Calgarians? What characteristics and amenities are the most desirable to most of us? That’s the question we try to answer each year with our Best Neighbourhoods survey and rankings. [Avenue Magazine]
