News and Updates
The public is invited to attend a Public Open House/Information Meeting to begin the process of preparing a Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP) for Grandview Heights NCP Area #3. The Public Open House/Information Meeting will be held:
Date: Wednesday, November 23, 2016
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm (Presentation at 6:30 pm)
Place: Earl Marriott Secondary School (Hub Area and Theatre), 15751 16 Ave
The purpose of the Public Open House/Information Meeting is to introduce the City’s planning team, provide background information on the NCP area, describe the planning process, and establish a Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) to work with the City’s planning team in developing the NCP.
Background on Plan Initiation
On October 22, 2015 a public open house was hosted by a major landowner in the Grandview Heights NCP #3 area (Logos Investments Inc.) in order to gauge the level of interest among landowners in the neighbourhood for an NCP process to begin. On January 6, 2016 the City received an initial petition submitted by Aplin and Martin Consultants Ltd. on behalf of Logos Investments Inc. seeking the preparation of an NCP for the area. Updated petitions including additional landowner signatures were submitted on March 2, 2016 and on April 6, 2016.
Planning and Consultation Process
The City will develop a Terms of Reference (ToR) for Council’s approval prior to beginning the NCP process. The Terms of Reference will include the necessary background studies including an environmental and heritage study, and an ISMP for the drainage catchments that touch on the NCP. The ToR will also set out a comprehensive community consultation program, including the selection of a Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) that will assist in developing and reviewing the land use plan as it evolves. The NCP process will be structured into two stages, including:
- Stage 1: A land use concept and supporting transportation and drainage plan, along with a general servicing strategy. Stage 1 will be brought to Council for approval prior to work beginning on Stage 2.
- Stage 2: Engineering servicing strategies, design guidelines, and a financial strategy including infrastructure financing and Community Amenity Contributions.
