Planning & Development Map


Planning and Development Map is live! The City of Calgary presents a new online mapping tool that allows citizens to track, contact and provide comments on redesignation proposals. This is Phase I of the project with additional features to be added such as more application types. Anyone can follow the progress of the file from submission through decision by City Council. Click The Map icon above to see the map and learn more about its features below!

We are continuously working to populate all application pages with plain language descriptions and application details. New features and tweaks to the existing map are being added, including more application types and file descriptions. We encourage user feedback on the online and mobile versions of the site to provide you with a better experience.

Now two great options!

This new interactive map has numerous features and is also tied to another innovative Planning System project: the Notice Posting Pilot. Our newly redesigned Notice Postings (signs) are larger, more visually appealing, have easily understandable project descriptions, and direct citizens to the Planning and Development map. These complimentary tools are both intended to increase public participation in the application process. Check out the Notice Posting page here.

How does it work?

Multiple search options

Easily find out what's happening in your community (or any community). Search by address, community, ward, or file number. You can also just scroll around the map using the interactive features:

  • Scroll up and down
  • Apply the Google Maps layer
  • Roll your mouse (or finger) over a file (show file tab) and the area being proposed for development will be highlighted (show example)
Social media sharing

Share file information on your social media channels to increase community engagement on a file.

File status tracker

Follow the status of the application from submission through to final submission by City Council. Learn about the process and at what times comments can be submitted.

Direct comments and feedback

Your comments on a file go directly to the file manager or City Clerk's, depending on what stage the application is at.

Online and mobile access

Enjoy easily accessible information that suits your browsing preferences.

Plain language descriptions
