Community engagement

Airdrie citizens are encouraged to voice their opinions, thoughts and ideas about city services and our community. Residents are welcome to attend Council meetings, open forums and participate in surveys that let Council members know what you are thinking on a number of topics.

Waste & Recycling Services Focus Groups 

Waste and Recycling Services would like to invite you to a focus group (small online discussion group) about the City of Airdrie’s curbside collection program (blue cart, green cart, garbage.)
The focus groups will help our department understand how you use the curbside programs. In particular, we want to better understand what you currently know about our programs, challenges you face and any ideas for creating a better program.

Session one: Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 3 p.m.
Session two: Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.

To sign up, email Waste & Recycling Services with subject line: Focus group, indicating which date and time you are interested in. 

The focus group is expected to last no longer than one hour and a $25.00 gift card will be sent to all individuals who participate.


Community participation is always encouraged during Council Public Question Period and any Public Hearings.


Other ways to engage with the City of Airdrie

Initiative-based surveys
We utilize surveys developed in-house and through collaborations with consultants to determine how our residents feel about particular issues. In 2014, we conducted surveys on recycling, snow and ice removal and curbside organics recycling. These survey results are presented in Council meetings.

In addition, each January the City of Airdrie conducts a telephone and web Citizen Satisfaction Survey. If you receive a call for the survey, we hope you'll take the time to respond and let us know how you feel about the services the City provides.

Council meetings
Council meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of each month in Council Chambers at City Hall. If the Monday is a statutory holiday, the meeting will be held on Tuesday. Council agendas are posted the Thursday evening before the meeting. More information about upcoming meetings and agendas can be found here.

Community Needs Assessment
Every three years Community Services polls Airdrie citizens, to assist the City in completing a Community Needs Assessment (CNA). The CNA helps us to identify the nature of Airdrie – our strengths and areas of need, and provides us with a tool for future community planning and direction. The survey asks about community services, arts, culture, recreation and sport facilities and development or improvement funding.

Master planning documents
Airdrie has a number of master planning documents that have been developed over the years, with citizen input. These include the Airdrie City Plan, Transportation Master Plan, Airdrie Fire Department Master Plan, Great Places Master Plan, and the AirdrieONE Sustainability Plan.
