CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I think these types of developments are an imperative not just for Woodcroft but for the entire city. As our population grows, we need to be conscious of the costs associated with that growth.

Every time we build a new subdivision it costs the tax payer an obscene amount of money for things we already have in these older undeveloped neighbourhoods, for example.

Paving new roads, Sewer and drain Infrastructure, Streetlights, Public transit, Snow removal, Police coverage, Ambulance coverage, Fire department Coverage, Schools, Hospitals, Libraries, Community centres, Public sporting facilities

There're also the environmental impacts to consider, if everyone needs to drive 30 minuets to get to work because they live in a suburb outside of the Henday what will this do to our air quality.

So I’m in favour of this application.

As residents for the last 30 + years, we are opposed to this development. I wonder how many people who are for this project actually live in this neighborhood. One concern is for the people who live along 115 Ave and on 136 St. Parking is already at a premium due to the 2 nearby large apartment buildings and the multi-famliy complex across the street. When I went door to door several years ago to ask for support for the new street lights, the main complaint I heard from residents off of 115 Ave., was that they can't even park in front of their own house due to the large number of people (living, working and visiting) the nearby apartment buildings. Not to mention the traffic, noise, and blocked sunlight caused by the then single and now double apartment buildings. Also, I would not want this to be built next door to me and I assume that the houses immediately next to it would feel the same. A 4 storey building sounds small but it is not. This will totally block their sunlight and reduce their privacy in their yard. Building more multi-family projects or infill housing is going to decrease the property values; not increase them. Many families, including my family, have built new, single family homes in this area. We have invested in this community and we want more people to do the same. With the amount of rental properties in this area, I am worried that we are on a slippery slope. If this apartment gets approved, other rezoning proposals will follow. Say goodbye to the unique neighborhood that we have and to your sunlight and privacy. Let other neighborhoods, like Inglewood, build so many infills that your friends can't find a place to park or you can't navigate down the street without literally having to back up because there is no empty spaces in which to pass an oncoming car. I am also oppose to the additon of ground floor commerical spaces at the bottom of this building. We are surrounded by retail spaces and I don't feel we need any more. This location is a few blocks from Westmount Mall, the strip mall, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. on all sides. Westmount mall can't even fill the space they have with retailers. Remember the retail spaces that were empty for years, where Rexall is now? Why not support the businnesses we already have in this area? With the changes due to COVID, retail shopping is forever changed. Also, the retailers that come in may not be the type that you want right next door. Please do not approve this rezoning. They first asked to have this rezoned so that they could build a 6 storey building, which they knew would be opposed. Then they "compromised " by suggesting they would reduce the height or maybe only build a few little row houses. They already know what they want to build, and they are trying to make us agree to this rezoning because we are nice people and we feel bad if people don't get what they want. What about what we want?

I bike a lot along 115 av and it is very dangerous for bikers on the road with the bus coming and cars driving by not to mention the parked cars on both sides of the road. It should remain a single detached. The City wants to support biking and it needs to be safe. The area is extremely crammed I opposed this development

Woodcroft homeowner 2 months ago

I heard that the City of Edmonton passed that the developer is not responsible for having adequate parking when developing a new building. For this reason I opposed this development. I do not oppose infill but because of the road it is on, there is no room for a bus, bikes and cars to drive through as parking is a major issue. Please do not approve this development in this location!! A duplex or four-plex is okay or leave it single detached home. The Matheson senior centre also lacks parking and many people will park on 115 av or within the neighbourhood. Please do not add to this issue! Affordable housing and infill is great but not this location.

Woodcroft homeowner 2 months ago

Four storey height is oppressive to the neighbouring lots especially as it blocks the south facing which will have a Drastic impact to light as well as complete overview from upper storey windows.
Also no parking provision makes this an awful idea for this location. Traffic congestion in narrow residential roads will be made all the worse With the lack of off street parking in a complex of this size.
A two storey apartment block with off street parking provided would be workable and wouldn’t over shadow the neighbours.

There are more than enough multi-housing options in Woodcroft. Parking, traffic and crime are already becoming issues in our once quiet neighborhood, this will only bring more of that. Being a long time resident, I’m very much opposed to this rezoning. Please leave Woodcroft alone.

I find it very frustrating that The City/developers keep coming into Woodcroft and changing the zoning plans for our area. 115 ave has become a gong show for traffic and parking. We already have The Matheson plus the new high rises that were forced on the community where the strip mall was, and now this new proposal. Has anyone tried driving down 135 st just north of 115 ave? It is absolutely packed on both sides of the road because of the staff and visitors of The Matheson. I grew up in Woodcroft and my house has been in my family since 1970. Can you please just leave Woodcroft alone and let us enjoy our community without us having to justify why we want our community left the way it is. There is a reason why people love our community so please leave it alone.

While RA8 allows for 6 stories, RA7 does not specify how many stories would be allowed. The development on this site should not exceed 2 stories. - this would be in keeping with the existing surrounding housing. Approving anything taller would be setting a dangerous precedent for remaining RF1 zoned housing on 115th Avenue. Please note: The address appearing on the second notice is incorrect.

Westmount is an up and coming area that can really use some nice new housing units / buildings. I spend lots of time in this area and have already noticed significant renovations made within 2 blocks of this proposal, and its construction would create great curb appeal while increasing value of neighbouring homes. I have had several personal experiences with transient people here due to the service road and ETS station, and think some new apartments would promote young people and families to move into the area, discouraging criminal activity. Whoever moves into this new unit would be leaving a minimal carbon footprint due to the sharing of space as well as convenient amenities that are mere footsteps away.

Something like this couldn’t come any sooner. Though I understand some of your concerns, I’m excited to see how much my home will increase in value. As the city grows and develops, Woodcroft needs to develop in order to continue winning!!

Westmount is an up and coming area that can use some brand new housing units / buildings in general. I spend lots of time in this neighbourhood and have noticed there have already been several key renovations made within 2 blocks and a new zoning here as proposed would make good use of the land that has been used as a dump for so long. I have had several personal experiences with transient people wandering around on private property due to the bus stop and service road on Groat Road and hope that some new developments would encourage more families and young people to move into the area, as well as discourage crime. The curb appeal would also increase the value of nearby properties.

I think this is a great idea for the Woodcroft Community. This new development would really elevate the Community creating a nice curb appeal. It would be nice to see some more changes like this happening in the neighbourhood.

I’m in favour. It would help diversify the community and provide more living options for people.

Would be great for the community. Would make woodcroft more diverse and bring in new families. Plus, businesses around that area would benefit too with new families in the area.
