The City has filed a planning application for 8120 93 Street NW. This application proposes a plan amendment to remove the site from the boundary of the North Saskatchewan River Valley Area Redevelopment Plan.
The application also proposes 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.
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.
There will be a public hearing on this planning application at City Council in late fall 2020. You will be able to register to submit comments or speak remotely at the public hearing. Find more information about the application and how you can participate in the public hearing on the King Edward Park Planning Applications page.
