UPDATE: Merged Inglewood & Ramsay ARPs
As of Q2, 2018, The City has decided to merge the two draft Area Redevelopment Plans (ARPs) for Inglewood and Ramsay. This will allow the two communities to share a basic approach to growth while recognizing individual differences where appropriate. The plans share a lot of common policies and the two communities have been planned as a unit from the start of this process in mid-2015.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City of Calgary has been working on new Area Redevelopment Plans (ARP) for Inglewood/Ramsay which will account for the new Green Line LRT stations.
An ARP provides rules and guidance for the type of development that makes sense in a given area – how to complement the local character, what level of density makes sense and how to transition from high to low density, or residential to commercial.
It includes policies on land uses, building forms and densities, buildings heights, parks, transportation, contamination and housing.
In October and November 2017, engagement to collect feedback on the Draft Inglewood ARP and Draft Ramsay ARP was collected through two related processes: the Green Line Area Redevelopment Committee and a public online survey. The Green Line Area Redevelopment Committee is a group of community members who have volunteered to make sure that diverse community perspectives are included in the review plans.
A comprehensive summary of the identified issues and City responses to those issues can be found in the What We Heard / What We Did reports below. We hope that the explanations and rationale provided in these summaries will be of help for you to understand where feedback has been incorporated into the draft plans so far and if not, why not.

In the spring of 2018, there will be opportunities to discuss the themes that were raised during the last phase of engagement and ask questions about the responses provided. The updated and merged draft plan will also be shared and there will be additional opportunities to review the plan and provide input on specific topics, through a public session in the community and online. The new plan is expected to be brought forward to Council in December 2018.
