Information
Request for Decision Summary
This Request for Decision provides information for holding a public hearing for proposed Bylaw C-1074-19 City Centre Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP), a statutory plan outlining a plan for redevelopment of Spruce Grove’s city centre area. 

A previous public hearing on Bylaw C-1074-19 was held on May 27, 2019. Council closed that hearing with direction that Administration conduct additional consultation with area residents to better understand their concerns with the ARP's proposed Urban Living Precinct.

Administration supports this Bylaw.

Proposed Motion
That those in attendance be thanked for their input.
Background/Analysis
City centre revitalization is identified in Spruce Grove's Municipal Development Plan (MDP) with the objective of creating a distinct mixed-use hub that functions as one of the City's primary community level gathering places. The proposed City Centre ARP Bylaw C-1074-19 aligns with the MDP's policies to frame a distinct urban experience through mixed-uses, a pedestrian friendly environment, and allowance for a diverse and eclectic range of housing and services.

Cushing Terrell Architects Inc. and Key Planning was retained in September 2017 to prepare a City Centre ARP that would review the existing conditions and create a plan for redevelopment of the City Centre. 

For additional background information, please consult the RFD for this Bylaw's second reading that is included within the Council agenda for this date.
Options/Alternatives
Bylaw C-1074-19 is being presented for Council's consideration of second reading later on this same Council agenda. 

Should Council feel they need further information to make a decision they may choose to adjourn the public hearing for continuance at a later date. If Council chooses this option, second reading of this bylaw will be re-scheduled to a later date. 
Consultation/Engagement
This public hearing was advertised in the January 24, 2020, and the January 31, 2020, editions of the Spruce Grove Examiner in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Government Act.  A letter advising of the public hearing has been sent to landowners and residents within the City Centre ARP boundary area, and notice has also been posted on the City's website. 
Implementation/Communication
If approved, the City Centre ARP will define the objectives and policies to be utilized in guiding the future land use and form of the City Centre lands.  
Impacts
The City Centre ARP will provide a plan to address objectives defined for the city area in the Municipal Development Plan, Economic Development Strategy, and the Cultural Master Plan.
