Municipal Development Plan
Your Bright Future, Municipal Development Plan, 2010 – 2020 (MDP) is the City’s primary statutory plan. The Future Land Use map designates the subject lands as Residential and amendments to the MDP are not required to facilitate this development.

East Pioneer Area Structure Plan
The East Pioneer Area Structure Plan (ASP), Bylaw C-843-13, was adopted in May 2013. The proposed redistricting is consistent with the subject site's Low to Medium Density Residential designation in the ASP and will not require amendments to the ASP.

Land Use Bylaw
The subject lands are districted UR – Urban Reserve. The reclassification of land to other land use districts is normally required before subdivision and development can occur.

The proposed R1 – Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District is intended to accommodate a range of low to medium density dwellings. Row housing developments are considered a discretionary use in the R1 district.
Administration has discussed initial comments about the development with the applicant.

The proposed amendment will be circulated internally for other departments’ comments.

Public Hearing
A public hearing will be held prior to second reading. Advertisements for the amendment's public hearing will be in the local newspaper as per Municipal Government Act requirements. The public hearing notice will also be mailed to landowners adjacent to the plan area. Any questions or comments regarding the development can be addressed at the public hearing.
If approved, the Land Use Bylaw map will be updated and posted on the City's website.
This amendment will provide for the development of row housing.
