City of Calgary hosts information session on development of new southwest communities

The City of Calgary is hosting a public information session about an area being planned for new communities in the city’s southwest.

The plan area, named Providence, is located in southwest Calgary at the future intersection of the Southwest Ring Road and 146 Avenue SW. The area encompasses 1,950 acres of undeveloped agricultural land, which could accommodate residential housing, retail and a variety of employment uses.

City planners are currently working on a document called an area structure plan that will guide development in the area. This document will set out the high-level land uses and transportation networks, identify servicing requirements and locate areas of environmental significance.

“Over the next several months, we’re going to be planning the future of the new communities in Providence,” says Jill Sonego, planner with The City’s Planning Department.  “We’re interested to hear from the public so that we can incorporate their feedback into our planning process.”

The information session will be held at the South Fish Creek Recreation Association on Thursday, March 26 from 5 to 8 p.m. This drop-in session will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about this project, view initial land use concepts, meet the project team, ask questions and provide feedback in a casual setting.
