DISTRICT 32 UPDATES

Feb. 21, 2021

The Guidebook for Great Communities (The Guidebook) has gone through several iterations.  The updated Guidebook will be brought forward to City Council on March 22, 2021.  Council’s hearing will include an opportunity for public comments, so citizens can speak “for”, or “against” the updated guidebook.  Following the public hearing, members of Council will vote on whether to adopt The Guidebook.   If ratified, the document will become a “statutory planning document”. 

In preparation for the Council meeting on March 22, The Federation of Calgary Communities will host “town hall” sessions, to hear and understand various viewpoints, identify outstanding gaps and propose solutions to City Council.  “The Federation” will analyze feedback from the town halls, balance the feedback with good planning practice, to reflect the community voice when we present to Council in March.

The updated Guidebook introduces new rules for Limited Scale Residential Intensity, and may affect areas within our community

Representatives of Palliser Bayview Pump Hill Community Association are scheduled to participate in the “town hall” meeting on Tuesday, March 9th ;  7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.   

Questions, concerns?   Please contact: director.civicaffairs@pbpcommunity.ca.

More on the Guidebook:
The Guidebook is a planning policy document that will direct how communities will evolve and grow.  The Guidebook is  a statutory planning policy that provides guidance and direction in understanding and applying for future community development, including  contribution to “a great community”.   The document  will influence the way we approach local area planning (i.e.), Area Redevelopment Plans (ARP’s),  or Local Area Plans (LAPs)).  Part of this approach is to establish Multi-Community Local Area Plans based on current planning policy for a group of communities,  instead of the previous planning policy of stand-alone plans for each community.
