Notification of the recent sale of the Harvest Hills Golf Course to Cedarglen Homes has prompted many residents of the community of Harvest Hills to contact my office to voice their concerns as to the future of the green space.
Many of the residents that I have spoken to want the existing golf course to remain; however, Cedarglen Homes has expressed an intention to redevelop the land into a residential area. In order to do this a land use re-designation (re-zoning) would be required. Should an application for re-zoning be received, as a member of Council I am required by law to remain open minded until it is presented at a public hearing of Council. At this time the City has not received a re-zoning application from Cedarglen.
QuantumPlace, the development manager for Cedarglen, has been enlisted to oversee the project and to lead the community engagement process. To date there have been three initial drop-in sessions; however, the consultation with residents around how the area may develop has not yet begun. I strongly encourage residents to actively participate in this engagement process to ensure the community needs are considered.
I recommend that residents stay in touch with QuantumPlace Developments
as well as the Northern Hills Community Association
for the most up-to-date information related to the golf course site. I will also continue to update my website with the most recent information available to our office. As always I always welcome emails and calls to my office should you wish to speak with me directly.
