A planning application (map) has been received to amend the Laurel Neighbourhood Structure Plan for an area west of 17 Street NW and north of Anthony Henday Drive.
In December 2016, property owners were notified of an application to remove plans for a pocket park in the southeast corner of the Laurel neighbourhood.
In September 2017, the application was revised to:
- Maintain the pocket park and reduce its size from 0.85 ha to 0.4 ha
- Reduce the size of the park planned north of 14 Avenue NW from 4.7 ha to 4.0 ha
- Identify a location for a future EPCOR Water booster station
Zoning for the booster station was approved by Council on August 28, 2017 (Bylaw 18137). The purpose of the booster station is to improve water pressure to approximately 400-1000 lots in the southeast corner of Laurel and future southwest Aster neighbourhood. The booster station itself is very small and will produce little to no noise during normal operation.
The application also includes an amendment to The Meadows Area Structure Plan to reflect the proposed amendment to the Laurel Neighbourhood Structure Plan.
