What makes a community a great place to live? That’s what we asked Calgarians who responded to Avenue’s seventh-annual online survey to find the city’s Best Neighbourhoods. From crime rates and property taxes to walkability, green space, businesses, schools and access to major roads, among other categories, survey respondents identified those neighbourhood attributes that matter to them most.
