View draft documents
You can now view the draft East Village Area Redevelopment Plan and draft Centre City Guidebook. Please note the content in these documents are draft policies for review and comment. A final draft document will be made available for review and comment in the fall 2016. Any comments received will be summarized in the report to City Council.
The East Village Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) will be presented to Calgary Planning Commission and Council in Winter 2016/2017.
The City is in the process of reviewing and proposing updates to the existing East Village Area Redevelopment Plan, last updated in 2010. The updates will facilitate development of the area, which is meant to be an urban, mixed-use neighbourhood. The new is now available to review. Additional revisions will be made prior to a final draft being made available in fall 2016.
2014 online open house results
From Nov. 24 to Dec 22, 2014, the City hosted an online open house and survey which shared the objectives and project direction for reviewing the East Village Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP), and asked citizens to prioritize what types of amenities would be most valued in East Village.
During the online event, 405 people visited the webpage and over 100 surveys were completed. We want to thank you for your thoughtful comments and the effort you made to contribute to the process.
Please visit the project’s engagement page and click on the “Input” tab to view a summary of the survey results.
Why is this review necessary?
The ARP was last updated in 2010. Since then, a number of challenges for new development proposals have been identified. For example, there are areas of the ARP, the Land Use Bylaw and the East Village Master Plan that conflict. Through this review, City staff will resolve these inconsistencies, create a more uniform density across the neighbourhood and provide more flexibility in how mixed use development can occur.
Who is involved in the process?
The City is committed to a transparent process. We will:
- work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders, including the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation; and
- engage with the public, providing opportunities to review the updated plan and give feedback to City staff.
How will this affect future development in East Village?
The revised ARP will be the statutory plan for East Village, providing clear and consistent direction for development. All development applications will be evaluated against the Municipal Development Plan (MDP), the Centre City Guidebook, the East Village ARP and applicable land use zoning. Projects that have already been approved will not be retroactively affected.
When will the revised ARP be completed?
