ABOUT THE PROJECT
Through this project, The City is looking to create a redevelopment plan for the Chinook Station Area - east of Macleod Trail S.W. surrounding the Chinook Light Rail Transit (LRT) Station and in Manchester south of 50 Avenue S.W.
The existing Chinook Station Area Plan (SAP) is a non-statutory document that was adopted by resolution of The City of Calgary Council in 2008. The new Chinook Station Area Redevelopment Plan (SARP) will incorporate content from the previous SAP as well as the Manchester Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) and will align with the Developed Areas Guidebook.
The SARP will provide the framework for redevelopment through policies that guide land use, built form and the public realm focused around the Chinook LRT.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
On March 6, 2019 the Standing Policy Committee on Planning and Urban Development referred the proposed Chinook Station Area Redevelopment Plan (SARP) back to Administration to explore further amendments to the plan to:
- increase the amount of Employment – Industrial Flex opportunities east of the Chinook LRT Station;
- expand the High Street along 61 Avenue east of the Chinook; and
- explore ways to anticipate, as a place-holder, the future development of a 50 Avenue SE LRT Station.
Administration has been directed to return to the SPC on Planning and Urban Development by September 2020 with recommendations that align with:
- work currently underway on the Developed Areas Guidebook and plans for multi-community local area plans; and
- work on the Established Areas’ Growth and Change Strategy.
