ABOUT THE PROJECT
On November 24, 2016 Council directed Administration to undertake and evaluate an amendment to the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP), through the Developer Funded ASP Program. The developer funded ASP amendment will focus on approximately 34 hectares of land and is being reviewed concurrently with two applications, West District and West Park. These two applications for outline plans and land use must align with the proposed West Springs ASP amendment.
The ASP amendment proposes to add approximately 2,400 residential units in multiple building forms to the community. Retail and office uses, as well as park spaces are also proposed. The scope of the proposal will also require an amendment to the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP).
- West District: Approximately 22 hectares of land is being reviewed as an Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment application. West District is a proposal for a master planned neighbourhood in west Calgary that proposes a compact, higher-intensity (people and jobs), transit-supportive and mixed-use neighbourhood. Located within the community of West Springs, the West District plan area is south of Old Banff Coach Road S.W., east of 85 Street S.W., west of 77 Street S.W., and north of 9 Avenue S.W.
- West Park: Approximately 4 hectares of land is being reviewed as an Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment application to plan and develop a portion of West Springs, to be called West Park. West Park includes the area north of 9 Avenue S.W., between 77 Street and 85 Street S.W. (including the parcels of land located at 819 81 Street S.W. and 839 81 Street S.W.) The proposal is for medium density residential development.
Please note: At this time, the southeast area of West Springs amendment is on hold for further technical review and will not be proceeding to Calgary Planning Commission and Council.
West Spring Area Structure Plan Map
In April 2017, we were in the community listening to your thoughts and feedback on the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP) and future changes in the area. Through the in-person events and online survey, we heard from more than 500 people. All of the feedback that was gathered has been compiled, analyzed and themed in the West Springs Area Structure Plan Amendment: Phase One What We Heard report. Here you can find a summary of issues and concerns, as well as the verbatim comments received through the engagement activities.
Your feedback will be used by The City to draft changes to the West Springs ASP and to gain an understanding of the community priorities as we evaluate the detailed applications in the area.
We are currently reviewing all the feedback captured in the What We Heard report and preparing for an upcoming Open House event to be held in mid-June.
