The city has released its annual citizen satisfaction survey which shows Calgarians are very happy with their city.
It's a survey of 1,000 people to represent the views of more than one million and it says among the least concerns of Calgarians are increasing taxes and the budget.
The survey says 88 per cent of Calgarians say the quality of life is good.
The biggest areas of concern are infrastructure, transit, and crime while taxes and the budget are of less importance.
Mayor Naheed Nenshi says despite that it doesn't mean it's blank cheque time when it comes to increasing property taxes.
"I think before we look at any increases we have to prove we're spending every penny well. If we need to invest in things that people think are important, I'm willing to make that case to people."
Meanwhile on the areas of concern, residents in South Calgary by a 2 to 1 ratio are more concerned about roads and traffic than their neighbours.
