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

Please review the information on this page and share your thoughts on the proposed plan amendments and ask any questions below, before the end of the day on January 23, 2022.

We will use any feedback that you share to make sure our review of the application takes local context into consideration and is as complete as possible. Feedback will also be summarized in the report for City Council so that they are aware of the public’s perspectives prior to making a decision.

APPLICATION DETAILS

A Land Development Application has been submitted to the City of Edmonton. The application was made by Stantec Consulting Ltd. on behalf of Cameron Corporation. The proposed Land Development Application has two components.

Grandisle Neighbourhood Removal
The first component is an amendment to the Riverview Area Structure Plan (ASP). The amendment proposes to remove the proposed Grandisle (Neighbourhood 4) neighbourhood from the Riverview ASP and consolidate it into the adjacent River’s Edge (Neighbourhood 3) Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) and future White Birch NSP areas. The changes would consolidate 1.05 square kms (105 hectares) of land into the River's Edge NSP and 0.88 square kms (88 hectares) of land into the future White Birch NSP area.

While the vision for the area would remain relatively unchanged as a result of the proposed amendments, if approved the proposed location of the stormwater management facility in the northeast would shift southward and the configuration of the urban village park would also be adjusted. Updates are proposed to the land use and population statistics as well as the neighbourhood development concept figures and text in the Riverview ASP to reflect the above changes.

River's Edge Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) Amendment

The second component of the application is an amendment to the Riverview Neighbourhood 3 (River's Edge) Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) to consolidate the approximately 1.05 square kms (105 hectares) of land from the Grandisle NSP area into the River’s Edge NSP.

The following additions are proposed to be incorporated into the Riverview Neighbourhood 3 (River’s Edge) NSP as a result of this consolidation:

  • 0.44 square kms (44.30 hectares) of low-density residential development;

  • 0.16 square kms (1.61 hectares) of medium density residential development;

  • 0.16 square kms (1.61 hectares) of high-density residential development, which is proposed as a new land use designation within the River’s Edge NSP;

  • 0.24 square kms (24.40 hectares) of existing country residential development;

  • One pocket park;

  • One urban village park;

  • Two stormwater management facilities totalling 0.06 square kms (6.0 hectares); and

  • 0.0078 square kms (0.78 hectares) of natural area and 0.0052 square kms (0.52 hectares) of potential wetland, which are proposed as new land use designations within the River’s Edge NSP.

Updates are also proposed to the land use and population statistics, mapping and text in the River’s Edge NSP to reflect the above changes.

The City has not yet taken a position of support or non-support on this application. The City’s position will be determined by a thorough analysis of the proposal that includes technical considerations (e.g. traffic, drainage, and ecological impacts) and alignment to applicable City land use-related plans and policies (eg. The City Plan).

As part of the application, the applicant was required to submit a number of technical assessments. The Transportation Impact Assessment (TIA) is available in the right hand side bar. The other assessments are still under review by the City and some of them, such as the Neighbourhood Design Report and Parkland Impact Assessment (PIA), will be made publicly available once they have been formally accepted.

Hi Luke,

The proposed plan amendments are not acceptable. We own two parcels of land with one address of 812 199 street NW and the second address is 912 199 street. Most of the land in our parcels according to the proposed plan are being converted to park and wetland. We are small stakeholders in the area as Cameron wants to take over most of the area.

Regards,

Gagan Saran

Hi Luke:

We have prepared a written submission that is not in a format that will allow us to submit it here. I will forward this directly to you via email.

While the requested changes to the impacted NSP is relatively minor, I cannot support any proposal associated with new greenfield development - at least without significant densities and the promise of high-capacity future transit.

While the damage was done when the initial ASP and NSP were approved, the reality is that the build-out of this new NSP will add hundreds of thousands of vehicle-trips to our city. There is ample opportunity to redevelop areas along existing or planned LRT lines to accommodate the planned growth of these new areas.

While proposed densities for the NSP and ASP (might) lead to new neighborhoods with enough tax base to not be a financial drain on the city, the transportation mode-split of this new area will undoubtedly be a net loss for our environmental goals. This should not be the development pattern of a city that recently declared a climate emergency.

Unfortunately blocking these proposed NSP amendments will not change this, but we should be demanding better development than the same car-dependent sprawl we've seen for decades.

Good to see mid and high density in new developments. This will encourage better services and increase the efficiency of this area.
