FINDING THE RIGHT BALANCE FOR GROWTH AND CHANGE AS NEIGHBOURHOODS EVOLVE
Neighbourhoods change and evolve overtime. Local residents move in or away, the population grows older or younger, people’s housing and lifestyle needs change, local businesses, restaurants and services offerings change.
We’re talking about the lifecycle of the North Hill area and working together to guide local redevelopment and revitalization to ensure the area continues to thrive and be a place that locals love.
Calgary’s Municipal Development Plan encourages future population and job growth in specific areas of the city. These areas include Activity Centres, Main Streets, and Transit-Oriented Development areas which are intended to support higher density development, more diverse forms of housing, retail and commercial services, public and essential services, as well as amenities. These areas are also characterized by frequent and high-quality light rail and/or bus transit service.
To the meet the goals and objectives of the Municipal Development Plan and to maximize opportunities for people to choose to live and work in the established areas, growth must also occur outside of these specific areas, within our communities. This allows for a greater range of housing types to suit all ages, lifestyles and housing needs in a way that contributes to communities evolving overtime.
Within the North Hill Communities there are four Main Streets (16 Avenue, 4 Street NW, Edmonton Trail NE and Centre Street N), three future Green Line transit stations (16 Ave, 28 Ave and 40 Ave), the MAX Orange BRT on 16 Avenue, a number of Neighbourhood Activity Centres such as the cluster of facilities and schools around the Renfrew Aquatic and Recreation Centre and existing strip mall and commercial development at 10 Street NW and 20 Avenue NW and an important employment hub in the Greenview Industrial Area.
Transit-oriented development is a strategy that promotes higher density, mixed use development within walking distance of a public transit station. It is characterized by compact, medium to high-density development that mixes residential, retail, office, open space and public uses in a way that makes it convenient to travel on foot or by public transportation instead of by car. Transit-Oriented Development areas are generally defined by a 600 metre radius around a transit station which represents an approximately 5-8 minute walking distance. In the North Hill Communities, Transit-Oriented Development areas overlap with the 16 Avenue (MAX Orange BRT) and Centre Street Main Streets (future Green Line and existing BRT)
Main streets are important to the long-term growth of our city, and are ideal places for mixed-use development, including
In Developed Areas, Neighbourhood Activity Centres (NACs) primarily exist in the form of smaller commercial sites, strip malls, or redeveloping public facilities. They tend to be centrally located within a residential area and provide walkable destinations for local communities. In accommodating growth and change, NACs provide opportunities for mixed-use (re)development, medium density housing (e.g. ground-oriented to medium density apartments), local retail and services, community facilities, and integrated transit stops.
This is the existing developed area within your community. The Municipal Development Plan encourages moderate growth throughout established neighbourhoods and residential areas. Redevelopment in these areas is a gradual process that occurs over a number of years and is guided not only by planning policy but also by market demand and people’s changing lifestyle preference and housing needs.
All data collected through phase one was analyzed by The City and shared with the Working Group. The Working Group and The City came together to prioritize the themes heard from citizens and this information was used to help develop guiding principles.
These guiding principles will be used to help evaluate ideas and concepts as the project progresses. These will also help inform our conversations about tradeoffs and benefits as options are developed. We ask that you keep these principles in mind as you provide your input
When thinking of the North Hill Communities Plan area and the key identified growth areas, we want you to think of how future growth and development might be accommodated.
There are two ways for your to provide your input, we would like you to show us where you think growth is appropriate within the focus areas and also tell us how you envision growth within the focus areas in the future.
There are a number of questions to answer, feel free to only answer those of interest, or answer a few now and come back to answer more when you have time. This survey will be open until March 10.
Please click through the each tab - TELL US and SHOW US to provide your input.
The reference materials above give definitions and examples of the focus areas we ask about below and will help inform your answers, please ensure you review these.
Each question has an assigned “marker/ pin” for you to use, please use the appropriate marker and provide comments.
1. Transit Oriented Development Areas (TOD). Are there TOD areas you think provide greater opportunities for growth and change? Identify which areas and tell us what types of buildings and uses you envision for these areas.
2. Main Streets Commercial Areas. Please identify where you think retail and other non-residential uses should be focused along the Main Streets and tell us why you think that area is appropriate.
3. Main Streets Building Heights. How many storeys are appropriate for future buildings along the Main Streets? Does this differ my street or location? Identify a location and tell us the number of floors you think would be appropriate in that location.
4. Neighbourhood Activity Centres (NAC). Help us identify Neighbourhood Activity Centres in your community (and larger plan area). Identify the NAC on a map and tell us what types of buildings and uses you envision for these areas.

The input collected in this phase of engagement will be used to develop land use concepts that will be presented back to the community for evaluation in our next phase of engagement. Input received through this engagement will be one of many factors considered as the proposed concepts and supporting policies are created. Other considerations include: City policies, technical and feasibility studies, market conditions and previous engagement results.
The project team also recognizes that significant engagement has occurred in the plan area connected to land use including: previous main streets engagement and the Green Line TOD Charettes. This feedback has not been lost and will also be taken into consideration as well.
