This isn't the final decision.

City staff review the proposal based on technical feasibility, City policies, stakeholder feedback (including public input), landowner rights and provide feedback to the applicant.

Changes to the proposal will be negotiated based on The City's review of the proposal and feedback from the public.

Bylaws and reports will then be prepared for City Council to approve in order for the development process to proceed. These bylaws and reports inform City Council and the Calgary Planning Commission of everything that would need to happen if they approve the application.
