CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

A Land Development Application to amend the Griesbach Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) has been submitted to the City of Edmonton. The application was made by B&A Planning Group on behalf of Canada Lands Company.

The proposed amendment is to facilitate redevelopment of 65 hectares (160 acres) of land in the northeast corner of the community. The plan amendment proposes a mix of new housing that includes low density and medium density residential development. It also includes local commercial areas facing 153 Avenue NW and 97 Street NW. The maple trees along 97 Street NW are to be preserved as part of the proposal and new park space is spread throughout the redevelopment area. Rezoning and construction happens at a later stage and are not part of this proposal.

The land developer, Canada Lands Company, presented a draft Master Plan to the community on February 9th, 2023. The proposed Griesbach NASP amendment is the same concept that was presented at that time. The master plan is a document that Canada Lands Company will use for their own planning, and the Griesbach NASP is a City of Edmonton document that is part of the approval process.

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 (e.g., The City Plan).
