Background

The West Macleod Area Structure Plan (ASP) was adopted by Council in 2009.Council rescinded and adopted a new ASP to include an additional 185 hectares (460 acres) of land south of 210 Ave S. to accommodate substantial future growth in Calgary’s southwest.

On October 4, 2016, Council passed a Notice of Motion​ directing Administration to enter into an agreement with the landowner, Highfield Investment Group Inc, to fund the cost of amending the West Macleod ASP under the Developer Funded Model.
