City Council approved a rezoning application and plan amendment at a public hearing on December 8, 2020. Watch a recording of the meeting.
In summer 2020, the City’s Planning Coordination section led public engagement on these proposals. This was a separate process from the engagement on a Good Neighbour Plan and building design. Read the rezoning What We Heard Report.
All planning applications are required to undergo the same rigorous analysis by the City’s Planning Coordination section, whether they are filed by another City department or a private developer. This analysis involves reviewing the proposal for technical considerations, including traffic and parking impacts, and alignment to relevant City priorities, plans and policies.
The City filed a planning application for 8120 93 Street NW. This application proposed a plan amendment to remove the site from the boundary of the North Saskatchewan River Valley Area Redevelopment Plan.
The application also proposed rezoning the site from Metropolitan Recreation Zone (A) to Low-Rise Apartment Zone (RA7) to enable a low-rise apartment development, and from Metropolitan Recreation Zone (A) to Public Utility Zone (PU) to accommodate the existing drainage facility. If approved, the proposed zone would allow for a 4-storey (16 metres) apartment building (multi-unit housing) with limited ground floor commercial.
