The City of Calgary is amending a portion of the Symons Valley Community Plan (ASP) to enable development. The Sage Hill amendment area comprises approximately 38ha of land located in northwest Calgary. The area is bounded by Sage Valley BLVD NW to the north, Sage Hill Dr NW to the east, Sage Hill Gate NW and Sage Hill BLVD NW to the south and by Shaganappi Trail NW and a deep coulee feature on the west.
On Nov. 28, 2016, Council directed Administration to work with the landowners using the Developer Funded Model to amend the Symons Valley Community Plan. The plan amendment will add policies to direct future development of the Sage Hill area but will not change the Symons Valley Community Plan as it relates to other areas.
The purpose of the Sage Hill amendment is to ensure development in this area supports the goals of Calgary’s Municipal Development Plan, which means accommodating a mix of residential, retail and commercial uses focused around a primary transit network.

The applicants are looking at revising the concept within the “Transit Oriented Planning Area” of the Symons Valley Community Plan (see map below).
Currently, the plan area shows regional commercial and higher density residential development (site A) just south of Sage Valley Bv. N.W.
The applicants are proposing medium density residential development in that area instead and no regional commercial. This would take the form of 3-6 storey multi-residential forms and townhouse development.
Additionally, the applicants for “site D” are requesting we review a higher residential density on their site (it is currently capped at 350 units with bonusing for 500 units). They are contemplating up to 1,200 units. This would remain a mixed use site (commercial on the main floor, residential above).
