I am extremely pleased Council unanimously supported the passing of the "Rowan Park in Haskayne" outline plan. The ability to move forward on this significant development was the result of Council’s vote to remove the Growth Management Overlay of 12 communities. This decision will benefit all Calgarians in terms of an increased tax base, ongoing investments, positive effects on housing affordability and the creation of 1000’s of jobs.

Over the total build-out, $70MM in levies will be paid by the developers, which represents over $2.4B in total economic value. At total build-out, the area will be home to 19,000 Calgarians.

Rowan Park in Haskayne is truly a game changer for North West Calgary. The innovative design of the community meets both the environmental and financial sustainability needs for The City of Calgary. The density is actually more than what the Beltline is. As well, this community will provide the missing link in pathway and trail connections from Calgary to Cochrane, including Haskayne Legacy Park and Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park.

This new community ties in nicely with Greenwich in the NW with its upcoming 60,000 sq. ft. Calgary Farmers Market.

On a separate note, and outside of North West Calgary, Council supported my Notice of Motion to move on the BMO convention expansion, when completed will generate over $267MM every year to the Calgary economy. These projects involve significant work by many people. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work to get these projects to the finish line!

Please join me in celebrating these Calgary building accomplishments.
