***This engagement has concluded and a What We Heard Report will be made available here when completed.***

Thank you for participating in engagement activities for this rezoning application. Please review the information on this page and provide feedback before the end of the day on May 16, 2022.

The role of the public is at the ADVISE level of the City’s Public Engagement Spectrum, which was determined using the Public Engagement Charter for rezonings. The charter provides City planners with guidance on selecting the appropriate type and level of engagement needed to inform rezoning proposal reviews.

The ADVISE level means that the City will use any feedback that you share to make sure the review of the application is as complete as possible and to inform conversations with the applicant about potential revisions to address concerns or opportunities raised. Feedback will also be summarized for City Council so that they are aware of the public’s perspective prior to making a decision.

Additional information on the proposed redevelopment can be found on the right hand side of this page.

APPLICATION DETAILS

Proposed Rezoning

The City has received an application to rezone the properties at 10839, 10837, 10835, and 10831 - 107 Street NW for future redevelopment.

The current proposed zoning is from the (RF1) Single Detached Residential Zone  to a (DC2) Site-Specific Development Control Provision and would allow for the development of multi-unit residential building in the form of row housing with the following characteristics:

  • A maximum height of 10.5 metres (approximately 2-3 storeys)

  • Up to a total of 13 residential units within three separate row housing buildings

  • A maximum combined floor area ratio of 2.0

  • Enclosed on-site parking to be accessed from the rear lane

  • Individual private rooftop patios oriented to face a common amenity internal courtyard

  • A minimum of seven family-oriented units having at least three bedrooms, a floor area of at least 100 square metres and 40 square metres of common amenity areas specifically designed for children

Proposed Plan Amendment Details 

The Central McDougall/Queen Mary Park Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) is in effect for this area. The plan states that only 8 per cent of the remaining neighbourhood housing units are single detached or duplex housing. It further identifies the subject site as forming part of the “Neighbourhood Core”, an area intended to protect the remaining single housing stock.

The application includes proposed changes to the ARP by revising Map 5 to reflect the proposed site rezoning from RF1 to DC2.

Application History

This application has been revised since it was first received by the City on February 21, 2020. The initial rezoning proposal was to allow for the development of apartment housing under the (RA8) Medium Rise Apartment Zone. As a result of the City’s review and public feedback, the applicant has decided to revise their proposal with the intent to develop ground-oriented residential units.

More Information

Zoning regulates what types of buildings are allowed on a site (eg. residential vs commercial) and the basic size and shape of those buildings. It does not control who can live in the buildings or whether the property is rented or owned. As a result, these factors cannot be taken into consideration by the City when reviewing rezoning proposals.
