Van Horne digital sign application

The City of Calgary is currently reviewing a land use amendment application (LOC2018-0089) in the Centre City for the installation of digital signage over five existing train bridge underpasses along the Canadian Pacific Railway line. The digital signage is intended to replace ten existing static vinyl banners located on the underpasses with seven digital displays running static (non-moving) content. The signs would be required to comply with existing Land Use Bylaw rules governing digital displays.

Land use amendment application

This land use amendment application proposes adding the additional discretionary use of Sign - Class G to the existing land use designation of S-CRI (Special Purpose - City and Regional Infrastructure District). These signs are classified as Digital Advertising and Third Party Advertising and are currently not listed uses in the S-CRI district on lands owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway.

If approved, the land use amendment would result in development permit applications for each of the railroad overpasses.

Locations

The proposed signs, measuring 8’ x 29’, would be located at:

  • 1st St S.E. – 1 display facing north
  • 1st St. S.W. – 1 display facing south
  • 8th St. S.W. – 1 display facing south
  • 8th St. S.W. – 1 display facing north
  • 9th Ave S.E. – 1 display facing west
  • 4th St. S.W. – 1 display facing south
  • Macleod Trail - 1 display facing south
