Application Description: Land Use Amendment
Existing Land Use District: R-C2, R-C2, R-C2
Proposed Land Use District: M-X1, M-X1, M-X1
June 4, 2021
The proposal is a mixed use zoning with a maximum height of 14 meters. After receiving concerns from neighbours with regards to increased height, traffic, shadowing and flood mitigation the proponent advised that the proposal is trying to mitigate the concerns by pushing the building further away from lower density houses, and separating commercial parking from underground residential parking. They had submitted a conceptual drawing and shadow study for review and comment, and while several neighbours requested the information, the ECA did not receive any comments and did not submit any position on this application.
The personal view of the Planning Chair is that some commercial development would be positive for the area, and the massing, being north of the single family residences would not create undue shadowing. Traffic in the lane, however, would be a concern and would need to be carefully addressed at the development permit stage.
It will be considered by the Calgary Planning Commission on June 16. If you have already submitted comments to the file manager it will be included in the CPC agenda. PLEASE NOTE that the CPC does not make a decision on this matter, it makes a recommendation to Council; however, the Council public hearing date has not been set. If you would like the ECA to make a submission to Council on this matter please send your comments to the ECA Planning Chair and it will put it on the agenda for the ECA meeting on June 14.

About This Application
This application proposes to change the designation of these properties to allow for:

- a maximum of 25 dwelling units (an increase from the current maximum of 6 dwelling units), based on a density of 148 units per hectare
- the uses listed in the proposed M-X1 designation.
The application is being reviewed against the applicable policies of the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP). An amendment to the Erlton Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) is required to allow for the proposed redesignation
NOTE: If this application is approved by City Council, the overall distribution of buildings, design of buildings, mix and size of uses and site layout details, such as parking, landscaping and site access will be determined later at the development permit review stage.
