March 2017 Update

The project team has been working
on a number of fronts:

  • We continued working with area landowners and refined the concept to address technical and design issues.
  • We continued work on our "Gateway” along 85 ST SW. In May of 2015, Council adopted Bylaw 48D2015 and approved the comprehensive Land Use Redesignation and Outline Plan (LOC2014-0008) for nearly 10 acres within the Master Plan vision area. The approval is representative of six (6) mid-rise mixed-use buildings (creating greater than 700 dwellings, nearly 50,000 square feet of retail, and new neighbourhood park space) that frame a segment of a new community main street. The first two buildings and the main street are now under construction and, in spirit, this represents the construction of the first phase of West District.
  • With the resolution of some technical and design issues, the project team made a formal application to the City for West District. On November 24, 2016, Council directed City Administration to undertake and evaluate an amendment to the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP), through the Developer Funded ASP Program.
  • The ASP amendment will focus on approximately 34 hectares of land and will be reviewed concurrently with a Land Use Redesignation application by Truman to plan, in detail, the balance of West District lands. The West District concept reflects an extensive public engagement process that occurred before the ASP amendment application.

The City of Calgary is currently reviewing Truman’s application to amend
the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP) to include a special planning area
for West District. As part of the process, the City will be asking the public for
feedback. The City will be hosting two open houses in early April:

Tuesday, April 4 and Thursday, April 6
5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
