Thank you for participating in engagement activities for this rezoning application. Please review the information on this page and share your thoughts on the proposed rezoning before the end of the day on December 17, 2023.
The role of the public is at the ADVISE level of the City’s Public Engagement Spectrum, which 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 takes neighbourhood context into consideration. It will also be summarized for City Council so that they know your perspective prior to making a decision at a future Public Hearing.
Application Details - Rezoning:
The City is reviewing an application to rezone 13503 and 13743 - 115 Avenue NW from the (RF5) Row Housing Zone and (RA7) Low Rise Apartment Zone to a Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).
The proposed DC2 Provision would allow for a development with the following characteristics:
Heights ranging from 3 to 10 storeys, with the shorter buildings to the north and taller buildings to the south.
Up to 750 residential dwellings.
Some commercial opportunities in the southeast portion of the site.
A revised network of internal roads and open space.
A maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 1.65

The City Plan, Edmonton’s combined Municipal Development Plan and Transportation Master Plan, was approved in December 2020. The City Plan sets City Council’s direction, and charts out how we will accommodate 1 million additional residents in Edmonton.
Recognizing the essential connection between land use and transportation, The City Plan identifies key areas within the city in a Nodes and Corridors system where population, business and employment growth are to be focused. The subject site is identified as being within the Westmount District Node. District nodes are intended to support a diverse mix of housing, employment and amenities, with the built form physically transitioning well with surrounding areas. The typical massing/form is anticipated to be mid-rise and some high-rise.
The role of the public when participating in engagement activities for proposed rezonings is at the ADVISE level of the City’s Public Engagement Spectrum. This means that the City will use any feedback that you share to:
- Inform the City’s planning analysis and ensure all factors are taken into consideration
- Help inform conversations with the applicant about making revisions to address concerns
- Summarize feedback for City Council so they are aware of the public’s perspectives prior to making a decision at Public Hearing
A What We Heard report that summarises the feedback received is posted online and provided to the Ward Councillor as well as anyone who registers and provides feedback through this page or by contacting the file planner directly.
City planners use the Public Engagement Charter for rezonings as a guide when determining what type of engagement activities are most appropriate to help inform rezoning proposal reviews.
Once the City completes its review and recommendation and the applicant is ready to take the application to City Council for a decision, the City sets a Public Hearing date. Notices are sent to all property owners within a minimum of 60 metres of the lands being rezoned, as well as affected community leagues and business associations advising them of the Public Hearing date.
Register to Speak to Council or Submit Comments
Public Hearings are an important part of the engagement process for rezonings. Members of the public can share their views on the proposed rezoning directly with Council by registering to speak at the City Council Public Hearing once the hearing agenda is posted.
Written comments can also be submitted to City Council through the Office of the City Clerk. Edmontonians can also watch the Public Hearing online.
If the Application is Approved
If the rezoning is approved by Council, the next step is for the developer to apply for development and building permits to start construction. Timelines for submitting these applications and starting construction are typically at the developer’s discretion.
