Who is CICBA?
CICBA stands for Calgary Inner City Builders Association. We are a non-profit organization focused on representing the voice and needs of the small and medium-sized builder/developer. We are the small business owners within the larger development community. Most of our projects tend to be smaller-scaled infilltypes, such as semi-detached, modest-scaled townhome units, four-plexes, etc.
The type and style of development built by our members tend to be scattered through a community in the form of smaller infill projects, resulting in modest density increases within a community that tends to be less visible and significant.
Our members focus on redevelopment within established areas of the city, not in new greenfield developments. (*We know these terms get used a lot – so we’ve put in our definition of these two terms below.)
Our organization is based on four pillars that are important to us:
1. Improving established communities
2. Realizing the benefits of redevelopment
3. Creating affordable redevelopment; and
4. Establishing accountability and credibility
