Proposed rezoning and plan amendments for 6865 Ad Astra Boulevard NW allowing for future commercial development.

A rezoning application has been received to rezone a property at 6865 Ad Astra Boulevard NW. The site is located east of Castle Downs Road NW and south of Ad Astra Boulevard NW in the Griesbach neighbourhood.  

About the Proposal

The proposed rezoning from Neighbourhood Convenience Commercial Zone (CNC) to Low Intensity Business Zone (CB1) would allow for a greater range of low intensity commercial, office and service uses for the local and surrounding communities.

Amendments to the Griesbach Neighbourhood Structure Plan and the Special Area Overlay for Griesbach within the Zoning Bylaw would also be required to reflect the rezoning.

Public Engagement

Public events and online opportunities will allow residents, communities, businesses, and industry representatives to provide input throughout the process.
