Project Updates

Sept 12, 2022

Our initial plans for an open house will be postponed until a later date.

An engagement session was originally planned for September, however, The City of Calgary was informed that the timing conflicts with harvest season. To maximize participation, and hear from all interested parties, The City of Calgary and Rocky View County are working together to plan engagements that best suit landowners, surrounding neighbours and the general public.

We are excited to engage and provide you with more information about this project and the annexation process. More details on a firm date will be provided once a date is confirmed.

For questions, we invite you to email us at RVCannexation@calgary.ca.

About the Project

In September 2021, City Council unanimously agreed to proceed with plans to initiate the annexation process for land currently within Rocky View County.

City Administration submitted a formal letter of initiation to begin the annexation process to acquire industrial lands within the boundaries of:

  • North: Highway 560
  • East: Range Road 282
  • South: Canadian Pacific Railway line
  • West: Range Road 284

The letter sent to the Land and Property Rights Tribunal fulfills the requirements of Section 116 of the Municipal Government Act.

We are planning for Calgary’s industrial future and this area will ensure we maintain an adequate long-term land supply to accommodate the evolving needs of industrial developers. These lands represent 1,676 hectares of space that aligns with The City’s future growth plans for the industrial sector of Calgary. The Next Generation Planning strategy is creating new ways of planning that support growth and change in Calgary now, and for the next generation.

The proposed annexation area was first identified as future-development land for The City in 2006, with a jointly-approved Rocky View – Calgary Intermunicipal Development Plan formalized in 2007. When annexed, the lands would be developed under The City’s jurisdiction.

Letters to notify our intent have been sent to landowners within the proposed annexation area, as well as those within 1.6 km of the area, as part of the process. Landowners and the general public will have an opportunity to provide input through a series of open houses (or other means depending on public health measures at the time) that will be held in 2022.
