CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

We oppose this rezoning. People already park in the neighborhood to go visit loved ones at the Matheson senior centre. There is a huge parking issue and the city of Edmonton never addressed this when the community brought it to their attention years ago. Woodcroft is a fairly small community and there are enough apartments around. We have plenty spaces for commercial opportunities in Westmount already. This area would be best for a duplex or single detached home. This development only serves the developer.

We oppose this rezoning. People already park within the neighbourhood to go visit loved ones at the Matheson senior centre because there is a huge parking issue. This issue was never addressed by the city when the community brought it up years ago. Woodcroft is a small community and we already have four apartment style complexes in the neighbourhood. For the issue of parking alone this rezoning should not go through and a duplex or single detached home should remain. Commercial use is not needed as the mall is less than a few blocks away. This rezoning only benefits the developer

I am opposed to this rezoning. My number one concern is the parking situation. We already have a terrible situation on 135Street and 115Ave with parking from The Matheson. To do the same to 136Street and 115Ave raises flags for me. You simply need to drive down Woodcroft Avenue when the learning centre is in session to see how congested our narrow roads are with on street parking.

Woodcroft is a lovely walkable neighbourhood and creating more traffic doesn’t fit well. The integrity of our neighbourhood will be compromised with another apartment building. Woodcroft is friendly, small town-ish. We have enough townhouses and low rise apartments, and I don’t see infringing onto the residential side of 115Ave with an apartment building keeping with the current neighbourhood style. Also, how about some due consideration for the surrounding residents. I’d be very unhappy if it was beside my home. Please don’t rezone this property. New single family dwellings or duplexes would be a better fit for Woodcroft in my opinion.

I see no benefit to the neighbourhood from this development. As many others have said, increased traffic, noise, parking issues and potentially crime are the most likely outcomes for us. The only benefit here is to the developer. I am tired of the city prioritizing developers over everything else. We chose this neighbourhood because it is small, quiet and cozy. We'd like to see that maintained. Small residential infill (no commercial component) is OK, but not an apartment building. We have plenty of multi-family units and commercial in the neighbourhood as it is.

I’m a woodcroft homeowner and I support this rezoning and the proposed development. Increasing density benefits all of us because it makes our city more efficient and keeps taxes lower. I do hope the proponent understands residents concerns about parking and incorporates it into their design.

Greg Hutchinson 3 months ago

I am not opposed to the addition of an apartment building. I do think we need to know how parking will be incorporated into the development. I do not agree with the recent changes to parking allocations for development adopted by the city. There must be sufficient parking allocated on the lot. I would also like small commercial spaces for local businesses such as a neighborhood pub.

I oppose this proposal and agree with most of the other comments here. Parking and increased traffic will be a major issue. I also sympathize with neighbours adjacent to the lots in consideration as they would lose privacy and quiet. I would be ok with an attractive duplex or four townhouses that have parking space included on the lot.

As a homeowner in woodcroft I oppose this rezoning. Woodcroft has a large proportion of high density housing including townhomes, low rise apartments, and 2 high rise seniors building. The community benefits from development of single family housing as well as high density to balance the community and maintain the communication that comes from community networks. In addition, the focus on density without infrastructure of parking will create resentment in the community.

We oppose the idea of another multi unit complex in Woodcroft. There is already a parking issue along 115 avenue and this unit would add to the problem. The parcel of land should remain as a single family dwelling or a duplex. The residents living in close proximity to this land should be considered as they will lose sunlight and privacy.

I absolutely OPPOSE the rezoning of these parcels of land. There will be zero benefit to the community but there will be detriments as pointed out by others’ feedback. I’d like to know on what basis might this change be approved?
What arguments need to be put forth to ensure this proposal does not get approved??
I’ve never seen a proposal put forth that includes the Wholistic approach of considering the neighborhood as a whole: widening of streets for increased traffic and parking .... installation of additional safety measures for pedestrians .... street lighting needs .... additional sewer and sanitation are but a few.
Woodcroft is already highly walkable for most ammenities and does NOT need any commercial space right in the middle of our residential portion. We have Westmount Mall and plenty of commercial space flanking us and walkable on 142 street and 111 Ave
These parcels need to be maintained as either single family or duplexes period.

Apartment style buildings close to other housing would ruin the privacy people have in they’re backyards and would make Parking a nightmare for the people living close to the apartments and ruin the aesthetic of the neighbourhood we oppose the plans!

As a home owner in woodcroft I oppose this rezoning. I feel that there is not enough space for parking as this is already an issue in this area. Furthermore building an apartment so near people’s homes does not make sense aesthetically and would remove privacy for those living right next door. This street and area should remain as single family homes or duplex housing. There is already a variety of housing options in the area and I feel duplex or single family is best for the lots in question.

The neighbourhood doesn’t have a lot of parking as it is and already has apartments and row housing we oppose the plans!

Are we able to see what the developer actually plans to build here and how it looks?
