The City of Calgary is developing a new Area Structure Plan (ASP) for the Springbank Hill area. This plan is going to retain existing policy direction for developed portions but also provide guidance for new development there, and offer solutions to landowners in Springbank Hill as well. 

 

A bit of background, the City requested an update to existing local area plans back in 2013, that have significant remaining development or redevelopment capacity. This aligned with the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) meant to accommdate increases in density while incorporating residential, retail and commercial. Important to note that access to transit has always been a priority for this as well. 

 

This project will respond to Council’s direction to prepare a new local area plan to be known as the Springbank Hill ASP. The new ASP will maximize potential development and/or redevelopment opportunities and capacity, offering solutions for landowners in the area. As well, this project combines the direction on future development within the study area into one document, instead of two.

 

This process is unlikely to affect properties in existing neighbourhoods, which have already been developed or approved for subdivision. Instead, the process will impact areas within the Springbank Hill ASP Study Area that currently do not have a Land Use Bylaw 1P2007 land use district or subdivision approved. [City of Calgary]

 

There are two upcoming open houses for the Springbank Hill ASP, where you can review the draft ASP policy, provide feedback, ask questions and learn about how your input will be used. The City of Calgary Planning and Development team will be hosting these open houses: 

 

  • Monday, February 6, from 5 to 8 pm at Westside King's Church (3939 - 69 Street SW)
  • Tuesday, February 7, from 5 to 8 pm at Westside King's Church (3939 - 69 Street SW)
You can also participate online by filling out a survey, between February 6 and 12. More information about the Springbank Hill ASP, the background, timeline and more can be found online here
