ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City is in the process of drafting an Area Structure Plan (ASP) for the West View community. The West View ASP will provide a vision for the future development of 254 hectares (629 acres) of land located within the west sector of the city. The plan area is bounded by the Bow River to the north, the communities of Valley Ridge and Crestmont to the east, and by Rocky View County to the south and west. The plan area is a joint planning area between The City and Rock View County, and will follow the processes outlined in the Rocky View County/City of Calgary Intermunicipal Development Plan.
The topography of the area is primarily rolling grassland with a signiﬁcant wooded area to the north, adjacent to and rising above The Bow River. A ravine system provides a unique natural amenity along the western portion of the plan area, both north and south of the highway. The land rises to its highest elevation to the south and west providing views to the ranges of the Rocky Mountains.
What is an Area Structure Plan (ASP)?
An ASP is a long-term planning document that sets out a vision for a community and puts in place policies and guidelines that work towards achieving that vision. The purpose of an ASP is to:
- Refine and implement The City’s broad planning objectives and policies of the Municipal Development Plan and other policies by promoting logical, compatible and sustainable development.
- Guide and direct the specific land use, subdivision and development decisions that collectively determine the form that the plan area will take. These development decisions include the provision of land uses, essential services and facilities, transportation systems, population, jobs and densities, and the sequence of development.
