WHAT'S HAPPENING?

With the approval of Home is Here: The City of Calgary’s Housing Strategy, Council directed us to take actions to address the housing crisis. One of these actions is the proposed citywide rezoning to a base residential district, or zone. This change will help increase the supply of housing to meet demand. This will also significantly reduce the costs and timelines for permit approvals, and allow for greater housing variety and options to suit your needs.

To learn more about what this means to you, and to use our interactive address map, visit calgary.ca/rezoningforhousing.

No zoning will change without Council approval.

A public hearing date has been set for April 22, 2024, when Administration will present a recommended approach to citywide rezoning to Council. The public may attend the public hearing in person or submit written input. Learn more about participating in public hearings at calgary.ca/publichearing.

Public submissions must be received by noon on April 15, 2024, to be considered as part of the agenda for the public hearing. Click here to provide your submission to Council.

HOW WILL THIS IMPACT ME?

Depending on where you’re located in the city, rezoning may affect you differently. You can search for your address using our interactive map here.

Rezoning is...Rezoning is not...
Making it easier to build different types of homes in our communities. Preventing owners from replacing existing homes with new, single-detached homes, nor is it removing existing single-detached homes.
Making it more affordable for Calgarians to find the housing they need in the community they want to live in. Going to eliminate single-family homes or only support rowhouse development.
Going to allow community builders to respond to housing demand more organically, without the need to rezone. Removing the development permit process. Landowners still need to apply for (re)development and building permits to ensure the proposed new home(s) remain compatible with the surrounding community.
Helping to revitalize our maturing communities, especially when existing infrastructure capacity exists to handle more types of housing. Going to reduce the property value of you or your neighbours.
Helping Calgarians stay in the same community close to friends, family, and the things we enjoy, as housing needs change over your lifetime.
