The City’s planning process begins with the citywide policies in the Municipal Development Plan and narrows to area-specific policies to guide new development. This area structure plan will build on the directions established in the North Regional Context Study to identify basic land uses such as parks and open space, utility servicing and a collector-level transportation network. To learn more about the Nose Creek Area Structure Plan, please refer to the panels that we presented at our September 17, 2014 open house as well as our September 3, 2015 open house.
+ Nose Creek Project Timeline
The project team held a Visioning Session with landowners and asked them how this site can contribute to achieving the Municipal Development Plan’s city-wide policies. Through this process, a number of themes emerged, which led to the creation of the vision and principles for the Nose Creek Area Structure Plan.
+ Vision and Principles
Vision Statement: Nose Creek will be a leading health-focused, inclusively planned community.
Principles: The Nose Creek Area Structure Plan is the northern gateway to Calgary and will:
- Integrate and celebrate the natural and cultural landscapes;
- Mobilize and connect people, places and communities within and beyond Nose Creek;
- Grow and exemplify a diverse, well-balanced community for all Calgarians, present and future.
A draft concept plan defines high level land uses, environmentally significant areas and a road network. A land use concept plan is always conceptual and is a small part of a policy document. A concept plan is refined throughout a project. The project team seeks public input and present the concept at public open houses.
