Highland Park’s Planning and Development Report for July

Highland cn

by D. Jeanne Kimber

City Council approved the Rezoning for Housing Bylaw with amendments on May 14. With this bylaw change R-C2 parcels will be rezoned to R-CG, and any R-C2 parcels along 40 Ave NW, 4 St NW, and Centre St will be rezoned H-GO. Administration has to revise the current Land Use Bylaw to incorporate the changes and has set August 6 as the implementation date. Videos and minutes of the Council hearing can be accessed from https://www.calgary.ca/council/meetings/agenda-minutes.html?redirect=/agendaminutes.

Here is a listing of current land use and development permit applications in Highland Park. Hearings for land use changes to R-CG or H-GO will still be proceeding for some of these applications pending the Rezoning implementation date.

• LOC2024-0083 440 32 Ave NW for a land use change to R-CG will be heard by Council on July 16.

• LOC2024-0069 3910 Centre B St NW for a land use change to R-CG is also scheduled for a public hearing at Council on July 16.

• LOC2024-0099 4016, 4020, and 4024 3 Street NW for H-GO. Two of these parcels closest to 40 Ave would be designated as H-GO because of the Rezoning bylaw approval, but the parcel at #4016 would normally be redesignated to R-CG. We have asked the File Manager about this.

• LOC2024-0006 3520 Centre St NE for a land use change from M-C1 to M-U2 to enable construction of a six-storey multi-residential building with ground floor commercial potential. The application has not progressed since March.
