Calgary Planning Commission

Calgary Planning Commission is a committee appointed annually by City Council. The commission acts as the Approving Authority on all subdivision matters and as Development Authority on some development matters.

The Calgary Planning Commission makes recommendations to Council on land use and planning items such as Area Structure Plans, land use designations, and street and lane closures. The commission responds to any planning-related requests from Council. The meetings of the Calgary Planning Commission are held in public but they are not public hearings. The recommendations of the Commission relating to land use planning policy or redesignation are directed to Council. City Council is the body who holds public hearings on these matters.
