Marching Ever Onward: New updates on path towards implementation

Nov 01, 2011

You may be wondering what’s been happening with the Mission Road Main Street Innovation Project since the close of our charrette last June. The answer? Plenty. Continuing with technical studies and review, talking to key stakeholders, and working on translating the charrette vision into formal City bylaw language that can be presented to Calgary Planning Commission and City Council. And now, we’re at a stage where we can show more of what we’ve been working on through another community event and update.

The schedule below shows the next key steps of the Mission Road Project:

November 18, 2011
Reports to Calgary Planning Commission should be available to public for review.

November 22, 2011
Community Open House | 6:30 to 9:00pm

Parkhill Stanley Park Community Hall, 4013 Stanley Rd SW

City staff will provide a preview of implementation content for the Mission Road Innovation Project in the form of an Area Redevelopment Plan Amendment and a Land Use Redesignation for the lands adjacent to Mission Road. Presentation material can be viewed throughout the evening in an open house format and there will also be a formal presentation of this material at 7:30pm. The intent is to provide information to assist the public prior to formal input through the Council Public Hearing process.

November 28, 2011
Calgary Planning Commission to consider the proposed City-initiated Area Redevelopment Plan Amendment and Land Use Redesignation.

December 5, 2011
Council to consider a deferral report of current Tabled Bylaws to January 9 in order to allow them to be considered concurrently with the new City-initiated proposal.

December 15, 2011
Public Hearing Advertisement for City-initiated bylaws.

December 29, 2011

  1. Bill Fischer says:

    What do you expect the wording to incorporate the ‘sunset clause’ (one of the key components resulting from the charrette consulting team) to look like when these ARP amendments are finalized? Or do you intend to tie the sunset clause to the land use redesignation?

  2. Tom says:

    Where on the city website can I find the reports to the Calgary Planning Commission? My searches on the website have been fruitless

    This is the moment we’ve all been planning towards.

    Beginning Wednesday, June 15, 2011, citizens, landowners, and City staff sat down with an international consulting team to translate years worth of lessons learned into a plan for healthy growth along Mission Road. Just as important, they used this week-long planning workshop as a test run for how Calgary's residents, business people, and government might better go about charting the future of our neighbourhoods together.

    That’s why we’ve described this project as: Neighbours on a mission. In reality, we’re all neighbours. And we have to work together to get where we want to go. Read more here.
