Business Revitalization Zones
The business revitalization zone (BRZ) program was established in 1983 to allow certain commercial areas of the city to administer and promote themselves internally. Many of the zones (or districts) that emerged from this have since acquired a virtual "neighbourhood" status by the people of Calgary. Most zones now offer a unique street shopping environment (many have restaurants and nightlife too) and have become popular destinations for both Calgarians and visitors to the city. None of these zones are officially designated as neighbourhoods unto themselves however. The City of Edmonton also uses BRZs, and other cities have equivalent systems such as Business improvement districts.

Famous quotes containing the words zones and/or business:
“The technological landscape of the present day has enfranchised its own electoratesthe inhabitants of marketing zones in the consumer goods society, television audiences and news magazine readerships... vote with money at the cash counter rather than with the ballot paper at the polling booth.”
—J.G. (James Graham)
“History in the making is a very uncertain thing. It might be better to wait till the South American republic has got through with its twenty-fifth revolution before reading much about it. When it is over, some one whose business it is, will be sure to give you in a digested form all that it concerns you to know, and save you trouble, confusion, and time. If you will follow this plan, you will be surprised to find how new and fresh your interest in what you read will become.”
—Anna C. Brackett (18361911)
