Due to COVID-19 public health restrictions, the City is unable to host its usual in-person public engagement event to share information and collect feedback on this proposed rezoning. This page has been created in lieu of an in-person event to help you find out information about the proposed rezoning application and tell us what you think

Please review the information on this page. Tell us what you think and ask any questions below, before September 22, 2020.

The application proposes to rezone the property from the (AJ) Alternative Jurisdiction Zone to the (RA8) Medium Rise Apartment Zone. If approved, the proposed rezoning would allow for the opportunity for a 23-metre high (approximately 6-storey) apartment building with limited commercial opportunities, such as child care services, general retail stores and specialty food services, at ground level. We will use any feedback that you share to make sure our review of the application is as complete as possible, and will also summarize it for City Council so that they know your perspective prior to making a decision.

Zoning regulates what types of buildings are allowed on a site (eg. residential or commercial) and the basic size and shape of those buildings. It does not control who can live or work in the buildings or whether the property is rented or owned. Please see the sidebar for more information on what factors are considered when processing rezoning applications and how feedback will be used.

The City of Edmonton Social Housing Branch is accepting feedback separately on the building design and a good neighbour agreement. To provide comments on those aspects of the development, visit Wellington/McArthur Industrial Supportive Housing Good Neighbour Plan and Building Design.

    When is the start date for this project? I just moved into Wellington town homes and was assured by our landlord that we would not be living near any planned construction zones for the next year of our lease. What can we expect ? I would have appreciated knowing this before moving in as I do not want to live next to a loud, noisy and smelly construction zone and I am not okay with that! Thank you. Will the neighbors be compensated for this inconvenience to our living situation, will we be able to get out of a lease if this goes through making it not the same agreed upon living environment? Thank you.

    Hello, thank you for your interest in the project. Before any construction can begin City Council needs to approve the proposed rezoning from (AJ) Alternative Jurisdiction to (RA8) Medium Rise Apartment Zone. We are aiming to move the rezoning application to the December 8, 2020, Council Public Hearing. Information on how you can register to speak will be forthcoming. If the rezoning is approved the applicant will need to submit both a Development Permit Application as per the City's Zoning Bylaw as well as a Building Permit Application as per the Safety Codes Standards. If the applicant receives rezoning approval and approval for both permits, then the anticipated start date of construction is the summer of 2021.

    With regards to compensation to your living situation, that is a private to private matter involving you and your landlord with no City involvement. 

    Thank you.
