When the Team set forth to name the 13 streets that would make-up the University District, the task was not taken lightly.
Wanting to stay true to the development pillars created and the links to the University, the team landed on the decision to honour past University of Calgary Chancellors who have served as the bridge between the city and the University since the University was established in 1966.
In a ceremony held on April 30, nearly all of the 13 Chancellors were represented to accept commemorative street plaques.
The celebration, which was held on the University District site as part of the University of Calgary’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, brought together city leaders of past and present to celebrate the future.
The community now turns its focus towards development and moving the vision for the future forward.
