  • Share

The Apr. 24, 2017, Regular Meeting of Council included:

  1. Victoria Park Option
  2. Eau Claire Smokestack Municipal Historic Resource Designation Repeal

Victoria Park Option

Council directed Administration to coordinate with CMLC and continue discussions with Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation (CSEC) based on the Victoria Park concept, and report back to Council as soon as possible. Council further directed Administration to collaborate with the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation and include the Victoria Park concept in the Rivers District master planning engagement program.  In 2016 CSEC proposed a multi-use sport and entertainment concept called CalgaryNEXT in West Village. Council reviewed that concept and requested that a new arena/event centre development concept in Victoria Park be investigated.

Eau Claire Smokestack Municipal Historic Resource Designation Repeal

Council gave first reading to the proposal to repeal the Eau Claire Smokestack Municipal Historic Resource Designation. Council directed Administration to prepare a Preservation Agreement between the City and the developer. Council further directed Administration to prepare a bylaw to re-designate the Eau Claire Smokestack as a Municipal Historic Resource upon its relocation. The change was required to enable the developer to relocate the smokestack which will allow for a more efficient and economic floor plate on the proposed development site.
