THE CITY’S RECEIPT OF THIS AWARD
IS IN RECOGNITION OF THE EFFORTS
ON THE 2009 CORPORATE ANNUAL

00:01:49.262,00:01:53.601
REPORT.
THE FINANCIAL REPORTING AWARD
WAS ESTABLISHED TO ENCOURAGE

00:01:53.603,00:01:56.938
MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENTS THROUGHOUT
CANADA TO PUBLISH HIGH-QUALITY
FINANCIAL REPORTS.

00:01:56.940,00:02:01.970
I AM VERY PROUD THAT THIS AWARD
HAS MOTIVATED CITY STAFF TO PUT
FORWARD THE EXTRA EFFORT

00:02:01.972,00:02:07.340
NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THIS
RECOGNITION FROM THE GFOA OF THE
U.S. AND C.

00:02:07.342,00:02:12.680
THAT’S FUN TO SAY.
THE 2009 CORPORATE ANNUAL REPORT
WAS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT

00:02:12.682,00:02:16.115
BETWEEN FINANCE AND CORPORATE
SERVICES AND CUSTOMER SERVICES
AND COMMUNICATION.

00:02:16.117,00:02:20.658
THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO PROVIDE
CALGARIANS WITH A HIGH QUALITY
ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT THAT

00:02:20.660,00:02:25.497
INCLUDES AN EASY TO READ
OVERVIEW OF OUR COMMUNITY AND OF
OUR OPERATIONS.

00:02:25.499,00:02:35.405
THE GOVERNMENT FINANCE OFFICERS’
ASSOCIATION IS THE PROFESSIONAL
ASSOCIATES OF STATE, LOCAL AND

00:02:35.407,00:02:41.505

AND CANADA.
ITS MAIN PURPOSE IS TO ENHANCE

00:02:41.507,00:02:44.514
AND PROMOTE THE PROFESSIONAL
MANAGEMENT OF GOVERNMENTS FOR
THE PUBLIC BENEFIT.

00:02:44.516,00:02:52.755
THE GFOA ACCOMPLISHES THIS BY
IDENTIFYING FINANCIAL POLICIES
AND PROMOTING THEM THROUGH

00:02:52.757,00:02:58.053
EDUCATION, TRAINING AND
LEADERSHIP.

00:02:58.055,00:03:01.525
ACROSS CANADA PARTICIPATE IN THE
PROGRAM.
I WANT TO CONGRATULATE ALL OF

00:03:01.527,00:03:05.964

00:03:19.040,00:03:41.925
[Applause]
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP, AND
MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

00:03:41.927,00:03:47.796
I JUST WANT TO MAKE A FEW BRIEF
REMARKS.
RECEIPT OF THIS AWARD FROM GFOA

00:03:47.798,00:03:51.931
IS EXCELLENT NEWS FROM THE CITY.
IT REFLECTS THE HIGH STANDARDS
THAT OUR ACCOUNTING, FINANCIAL

00:03:51.933,00:03:55.603
AND COMMUNICATION EXPERTS
PROVIDE TO THE CORPORATION AND
CITIZENS OF CALGARY YEAR AFTER

00:03:55.605,00:04:00.710
YEAR.
THE INTEGRITY, RELEVANCE AND
COMPARABILITY OF THE FINANCIAL

00:04:00.712,00:04:05.776
DATA IN THIS REPORT ARE THE
RESULT OF STRONG ACCOUNTING
PRACTICES, BUDGETING PROCESSES

00:04:05.778,00:04:11.016
AND OTHER FINANCIAL CONTROLS
THAT THE CITY MAINTAINS.
OUR COMMITMENT TO ACCOUNTABILITY

00:04:11.018,00:04:16.526
AND TRANSPARENCY IN THE CITY’S
FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT IS ONE OF
OUR MOST STRONGLY HELD VALUES.

00:04:16.528,00:04:21.370
I’M ALSO PROUD OF THE WAY THIS
INFORMATION IS PRESENTED AND
SHARED WITH CITIZENS AND

00:04:21.372,00:04:27.371
STAKEHOLDERS IN AN ATTRACT
ACTIVE AND INFORM ACTIVE
DOCUMENT THAT IS ACCESSIBLE TO

00:04:27.373,00:04:32.302
ALL THROUGH CALGARY.CA.
RECEIVING THIS AWARD TAKES A
HUGE EFFORT AND CERTAINLY DOES

00:04:32.304,00:04:36.807
NOT COME EASY.
WE CAN ALL BE PROUD OF THIS
ACCOMPLISHMENT AND IT IS

00:04:36.809,00:04:40.350
CERTAINLY MY PLEASURE TO ACCEPT
THIS AWARD ON BEHALF OF FINANCE
AND CUSTOMER SERVICE AND

00:04:40.352,00:04:43.688
COMMUNICATIONS.
WE HAVE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN
THE AUDIENCE INCLUDING A COUPLE

00:04:43.690,00:04:49.596

TODAY AND WHO CONTRIBUTED TO
THIS GREAT ACHIEVEMENT, AND I’D

00:04:49.598,00:04:57.707

THE BEHALF OF CITY HALL.
THIS WEEKEND ON SATURDAY, AND
YOU WERE IN ATTENDANCE,

00:07:21.167,00:07:26.303
Mr. MAYOR, THE CALGARY SOLDIER
MEMORIAL WAS OPENED TO THE
PUBLIC, AND IT’S A BEAUTIFUL

00:07:26.305,00:07:34.305
MONUMENT TO THE FALLEN SOLDIERS
FOR THE CALGARY REGIMENTS.
IN THE EVENING THERE WAS AN

00:07:34.307,00:07:47.426
OFFICERS’ MESS AND I HAD THE
HONOUR TO PARTICIPATE AND TRY MY
FIRST ATTEMPT AT HAGGIS AND…

00:07:47.428,00:07:51.597
[Indiscernible]
WHICH WAS FASCINATING.
I WAS VERY PLEASED AND HONOURED

00:07:51.599,00:07:58.137
TO RECOGNIZE THIS TROPHY FOR THE
CITY OF CALGARY WITH GREG
STEWART FROM PARKS DEPARTMENT,

00:07:58.139,00:08:03.370
DOUG MARTYR AND ANN CHARLTON.
I HAVE TO SAY THE CALGARY
SOLDIERS WERE VERY, VERY

00:08:03.372,00:08:10.184
APPRECIATIVE OF ALL THE WORK THE
CITY OF CALGARY HAS DONE TO HELP
THEM SEE THIS MONUMENT TO

00:08:10.186,00:08:13.850
FRUITION.
SO THIS TOKEN OF THEIR
APPRECIATION WAS PRESENTED TO

00:08:13.852,00:08:21.791
THE CITY BY BRIGADIER-GENERAL
WINNICK AND I WANTED TO THANK MY
COLLEAGUES, THE LANDSCAPE OF

00:08:21.793,00:08:29.899
MEMORY FOR MEMORIAL DRIVE IS
COMING ALONG BEAUTIFULLY, AND
THIS IS ONE LANDMARK MONUMENT

00:08:29.901,00:08:33.867
THAT HELPS BRING IT TO FRUITION.
SO THIS IS FOR THE CITY OF
CALGARY.

00:08:33.869,00:08:37.006
THANK YOU.

00:08:37.008,00:08:43.511
IT WAS INDEED A MARVELOUS
CEREMONY ON SATURDAY.
THE 94th ANNIVERSARY OF VIMY

00:08:43.513,00:08:47.480
RIDGE, AND FOR THOSE WHO HAVE
NOT YET SEEN THE MEMORIAL IT IS
DECEPTIVE.

00:08:47.482,00:08:53.715
IT LOOKS VERY SIMPLE, BUT IT IS
A REMARKABLE PIECE OF
ARCHITECTURE BY A LOCAL

00:08:53.717,00:08:57.321
ARCHITECT.
AND I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU ALL
TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND BE

00:08:57.323,00:09:02.937
MOVED BY THE LIST OF THOSE 3,000
NAMES.
ANYONE ELSE ON QUESTION PERIOD?

00:09:02.939,00:09:07.973
ON THE AGENDA THEN, CAN I HAVE A
MOTION TO ACCEPT THE AGENDA.
THANKS, ALDERMAN LOWE.

ALDERMAN STEVENSON.
ON THE AGENDA, ALDERMAN JONES.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:09:11.575,00:09:20.363
I WAS WONDERING IF WE COULD MOVE
THE RECESS THIS AFTERNOON TO
11:45 AMENDMENT TO 1:45 p.m.

00:09:20.365,00:09:26.690
TO ALLOW FOR A PRESENTATION AND

00:09:26.692,00:09:30.700

HAVE A SECONDER?
THANKS, ALDERMAN MAR.

00:09:30.702,00:09:32.839
AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?
OKAY.

00:09:32.841,00:09:37.102
ON THE AGENDAING WITH ALDERMAN
HODGES.
>> YES, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:09:37.104,00:09:49.749
ON THE AGENDA, I HAVE BEEN ASKED
TO BRING FORWARD AND MOVE THE
LPT 2011-23 SNOW AND ICE CONTROL

00:09:49.751,00:09:57.830
WORK PLAN INTERNAL REPORT AND
MIGHT AS WELL ADD THE SNOW AND
ICE CONTROL YEAR END SUMMARY,

00:09:57.832,00:10:03.068
LPT 2011-24 TO THE MAY 16th
MEETING OF COUNCIL.
THE 16th IS A REGULAR

00:10:03.070,00:10:13.776
MEETING.
AND I UNDERSTAND THERE WILL BE
ANOTHER REPORT AT THAT MEETING.

00:10:13.778,00:10:17.045
SNOW AND ICE CONTROL.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: CAN
YOU THROW IN THE RELEASE OF THE

00:10:17.047,00:10:20.712
SNOW AND ICE CONTROL FUNDS?
>> YES.
THAT’S CORRECT.

00:10:20.714,00:10:24.744
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: AND
THE REASON FOR THAT, BY THE WAY,
COUNCIL, IS I CONTINUE TO WORK

00:10:24.746,00:10:29.251
WITH THE SNIK DEPARTMENT ON A
BETTER REPORT TO COUNCIL WHICH
WILL BETTER TALK ABOUT THE

00:10:29.253,00:10:34.589
RESULTS OF THEIR PILOT PROJECT
AND THEY NEED A BIT MORE TIME.
DO I HAVE A SECONDER FOR THAT

00:10:34.591,00:10:36.955
ONE?
THANKS, ALDERMAN JONES.
ARE WE AGREED?

00:10:36.957,00:10:43.033
>> THE SNOW AND ICE CONTROL
FUNDS IS C-2011-33.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: MAY

00:10:43.035,00:10:48.005
16th.
ARE WE AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

00:10:48.007,00:10:54.217
ALDERMAN CHABOT AND LOWE ARE
OPPOSED.
OH, SORRY.

00:10:54.219,00:10:59.196
SORRY, ALDERMAN LOWE, YOU CAN
ASK IT NOW.
>> I’M TRYING TO RELATE — I

00:10:59.198,00:11:05.162
MEAN, WHAT’S YOU’RE DELAYING IS
THE AUTHORITY TO RELEASE FUNDS
TO PAY THE BILLS AS OPPOSED TO

00:11:05.164,00:11:10.781
THE BROADER REPORT THAT OUTLINES
WHAT WAS DONE.
I GUESS I WORRY ABOUT STEPPING

00:11:10.783,00:11:14.285
IN AND STOPPING BILLS BEING
PAID –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I’VE

00:11:14.287,00:11:17.484
CHECKED WITH ALL OF THAT
ALREADY.
IT’S A BIT CONFUSING.

00:11:17.486,00:11:25.061
BUT COUNCIL AUTHORIZED THE
EXPENDITURE OF A REMAINING
$5 MILLION FROM THE STABILITY

00:11:25.063,00:11:27.428
RESERVE.
THAT IS BEING USED TO PAY THE
BILLS NOW.

00:11:27.430,00:11:32.229
THE MONEY THEY’RE ASKING FOR IS
FOR NEXT SEASON.
SO THERE’S A LITTLE BIT OF TIME

00:11:32.231,00:11:35.798
THAT THEY DON’T NEED TO SPEND
ANY OF IT YET.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

00:11:35.800,00:11:39.299
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU.
ALL RIGHT.

00:11:39.301,00:11:44.328
SO WE GOT THAT ONE.
WE GOT THAT ONE.
ON THE AGENDA, ALDERMAN HODGES

00:11:44.330,00:11:48.266
STILL?
ARE YOU DONE?
ALDERMAN JONES ON THE AGENDA?

00:11:48.268,00:11:53.474
[Inaudible]
WHY DON’T YOU DO THAT NOW.
ALL RIGHT.

00:11:53.476,00:12:04.679
I WILL TAKE A MOTION THEN TO ADD
FOUR ITEMS OF URGENT BUSINESS.
PAC 2011-09 ON THE COUNCIL

00:12:38.884,00:12:47.056
MONSIGNOR HEATHERINGTON?
YEAH.
AFTER SEEING HOW MANY TIMES

00:12:47.058,00:12:53.156
WE’VE INTRODUCED SCHOOLS THAT

THIS IS A GROUP OF 32 STUDENTS

00:12:53.158,00:12:57.092
AND FOUR CHAPERONES FROM
MONSIGNOR HEATHERINGTON SCHOOL
IN CORAL SPRINGS.

00:12:57.094,00:13:03.436
THEY’RE HERE WITH THEIR TEACHER
AND FOUR CHAPERONES AND TOUR
GUIDE.

00:13:03.438,00:13:09.544
IF YOU COULD ALL STAND UP SO
THAT COUNCIL COULD RECOGNIZE YOU
AND PUT YOU ON T.V.

00:13:10.345,00:13:18.312
[Applause]
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: YOU
CAN BE SEATED.

00:13:18.314,00:13:27.127
YOU WERE JUST ON T.V.
THANKS FOR BEING HERE TODAY.
MONSIGNOR HEATHERINGTON IS MY

00:13:27.129,00:13:31.088
COMMUNITY SCHOOL BECAUSE I LIVE
ABOUT FOUR BLOCKS AWAY.
IT’S GREAT TO SEE YOU ALL HERE

00:13:31.090,00:13:34.796
AND I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL
DAY AT CITY HALL.
CONFIRMATION OF THE MINUTES.

SECONDED ALDERMAN STEVENSON.
ALDERMAN CHABOT.
>> THANK YOU.

00:13:43.618,00:13:49.800
I WAS GOING TO MOVE THE MINUTES
WITH THE SMALL AMENDMENT.
IF MEMBERS OF COUNCIL WOULD

00:13:49.802,00:13:58.726
PROBABLY NOTICE WHEN THEY READ
IT, THAT ON PAGE 8 OF 40,
THERE’S A DECIMAL PLACE THAT’S

00:13:58.728,00:14:06.130
BEEN MISPLACED SLIGHTLY.
ON THE SECOND BULLET AT THE TOP
OF THE PAGE, IT SAYS

00:14:06.132,00:14:16.633
RECOMMENDATION 3 BE AMENDED BY
DELETING THE WORDS 4.2 MILLION.
IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN 42 MILLION.

00:14:16.635,00:14:23.012
AND CONSTITUTING THE WORDS
2.1 MILLION WHICH SHOULD HAVE
BEEN 21 MILLION.

00:14:23.014,00:14:26.520
IF THAT CORRECTION CAN BE MADE.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I
THINK WE CAN TAKE THAT AS AN

00:14:26.522,00:14:32.223
EDITORIAL CHANGE THOUGH IT’S A
PRETTY SIGNIFICANT ONE.
WHAT’S TENFOLD BETWEEN FRIENDS,

00:14:32.225,00:14:34.090
RIGHT?
OKAY.
TERRIFIC.

00:14:34.092,00:14:37.901
SO WE’LL GO AHEAD AND MAKE THAT
CHANGE EDITORIALLY.
ANY OTHER CHANGES, DELETION,

THE SUBJECT SITE IS NOTED IN THE
AREAS OUTLINED IN RED ON THE
SITE MAP LOCATED IN THE

00:17:48.169,00:17:52.404
NORTHWEST QUADRANT OF THE CITY
AND IT IS ALSO PART OF THE
BOWNESS AREA REDEVELOPMENT PLAN

00:17:52.406,00:17:57.507
AREA.
THE SITE IS BOUNDED TO THE SOUTH
BY THE TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY AND

00:17:57.509,00:18:01.573
CANADA OLYMPIC PARK.
TO THE WEST BY RESIDENTIAL
ACREAGES AND UNDEVELOPED LAND.

VACANT.

00:18:11.496,00:18:17.824
IF YOU LOOK QUICKLY AT — THIS
IS AN AIR PHOTO OF — A BROAD
VIEW OF THE SITE IN RELATION TO

00:18:17.826,00:18:26.853
NORTH OF 16th AVENUE, WEST
OF BEAUFORT ROAD, YOU CAN SEE IT
SOUTH OF THE EXISTING TRAILER

00:18:26.855,00:18:29.622
PARK.
THERE’S A MORE FINE DETAIL OF
THE SITE.

00:18:29.624,00:18:35.827
YOU CAN SEE IT’S CURRENTLY
VACANT AND THERE’S NO
DEVELOPMENT EXISTING ON THE

00:18:35.829,00:18:44.662
LANDS.
THE MULTI-RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT
HAS A DENSITY OF 25.82 UNITS PER

00:18:44.664,00:18:50.967
HECTARE.
THE OVERALL RESIDENTIAL DENSITY
OF THE COMBINED STAGES EQUALS

00:18:50.969,00:18:57.742
34.26 UNITS PER HECTARE OR 13.86
UNITS PER ACRE WITH A TOTAL OF
835 UNITS POTENTIALLY.

00:18:57.744,00:19:04.415
REVISED DENSITY IS COMPATIBLE
WITH PROPOSED POLICY AMENDMENTS
ASSOCIATED WITH THE AMENDMENTS

00:19:04.417,00:19:12.182
IN THIS APPLICATION AND THE LAND
USE.
THE EXISTING DENSITY RANGE IS A

00:19:12.184,00:19:19.734
MAXIMUM OF 764 UNITS AND WITH
THE AMENDMENT THE ADVANCED RAISE
WE GO AS ANTICIPATED TO A

00:19:19.736,00:19:26.374
MAXIMUM OF 835.
THERE IS ALSO THREE CLUSTERS
ASSOCIATED WITH THIS

00:19:26.376,00:19:30.250
APPLICATION.
THESE AMENDMENTS ALLOW FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF OFFICE SPACE AND

00:19:30.252,00:19:36.458
COMMUNITY ORIENTED USES ON THESE
THREE SITES WHICH WILL COMPRISE
THE COMMERCIAL CORE WITHIN THE

00:19:36.460,00:19:41.227
GREENBRIAR SPECIAL STUDY AREA.
SITE A IS POTENTIALLY FOR A
GROCERY STORE OR MIXED USE

00:19:41.229,00:19:48.237
APPLICATION.
SITE B IS FOR LOCAL COMMERCIAL
OR STREET ORIENTED RETAIL

00:19:48.239,00:19:54.806
DEVELOPMENT.
C FOR OFFICE OR RETAIL AT GRADE
USES.

00:19:54.808,00:20:02.280
THE LAND USE REDESIGNATION AND
OUTLINE PLAN, HAVE A LOOK AT THE
PROPOSED DC MAP ASSOCIATED, THE

00:20:02.282,00:20:09.514
DC CUSTOMIZES THE C CORE LAND
USE IN THE SITE 1 AREA OF THE
SITE.

00:20:09.516,00:20:15.295
AND THE OFFICE DISTRICT AND SITE
TO SUPPLEMENT POLICIES RELATING
TO COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT

00:20:15.297,00:20:19.332
ENSURING IT IS RESTRICTED TO A
NEIGHBOURHOOD SCALE STREET
ORIENTED AND COMPATIBLE WITH THE

00:20:19.334,00:20:25.114
ESTABLISHED COMMUNITY OF
BOWNESS, BUT ALSO LIMITING AUTO
ORIENTED USES AND SPECIFYING THE

00:20:25.116,00:20:29.706
LOCATION OF USES WITHIN
POTENTIAL BUILDINGS.
ENVIRONMENTAL RESERVE HAS

00:20:29.708,00:20:36.747
PREVIOUSLY BEEN DEDICATED AND
MUNICIPAL RESERVE HAS PROVIDED
IN LAND AND IN CASH IN LIEU.

00:20:36.749,00:20:42.043
LOOKING TO THE OUTLINE PLAN, THE
OPEN SPACE PROPOSED IN THE
SECOND STAGE ACCOMMODATES LOCAL

00:20:42.045,00:20:46.117
AND REGIONAL PATHWAY
CONNECTIONS.
THE SITE ACCESS TO CONSTRAINED

00:20:46.119,00:20:51.736

BEAUFORT ROAD 16th AVENUE
TRANSCANADA INTERCHANGE

00:20:51.738,00:20:57.274
SCHEDULED TO BE BUILT BY 2013.
THE INITIAL INTERCHANGE WOULD BE
A SIX-LANE BRIDGE STRUCTURE OVER

00:20:57.276,00:21:02.379
THE TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY.
PRIOR TO ITS CONSTRUCTION, A
MAXIMUM OF 250 RESIDENTIAL UNITS

00:21:02.381,00:21:09.282
COULD BE SUPPORTED WITHIN THE
EXISTING TRANSPORTATION NETWORK
AND FURTHER LIMITATIONS HAVE

00:21:09.284,00:21:17.321
BEEN PLACED ONCE A DEVELOPMENT
INTERCHANGE HAS BEEN COMPLETED.
IN TERMS OF THE SITE PHOTOS,

00:21:17.323,00:21:22.753
THIS IS A PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN FROM
THE TRANSCANADA.
THIS LOOKING NORTH.

00:21:22.755,00:21:27.290
THIS IS THE WESTERLY PORTION OF
THE SITE.
YOU CAN SEE IT’S RELATIVELY

00:21:27.292,00:21:33.796
FLAT.
YOU CAN ALSO NOTE THE — THERE’S
BUILDINGS IN THE BACKGROUND, AND

00:21:33.798,00:21:42.793
THAT IS PART OF THE GREENBRIAR
SUBDIVISION WITH MOBILE HOMES.
AND THAT IS THE — LOOK NORTH

00:21:42.795,00:21:49.809
FROM THE TRANSCANADA, THAT IS
THE EASTERN PORTION OF THE SITE.
THERE’S MORE SLOPE OF THE LAND

00:21:49.811,00:21:56.178
THAT IS ORIENTED TOWARDS
16th AVENUE.
THIS PHOTOGRAPH IS TAKEN FROM

00:21:56.180,00:22:00.448
THE NORTH BOUNDARY OF THE
PROPERTY FROM THE TRAILER PARK.
YOU CAN SEE CANADA OLYMPIC PARK

00:22:00.450,00:22:10.019

AVENUE.
AND THERE’S JUST ANOTHER

00:22:10.021,00:22:16.987
PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN FROM THE
TRAILER PARK LOOKING TOWARDS
16th AVENUE HERE.

00:22:16.989,00:22:24.184
FINALLY, YOU SEE THE INTERFACE
BETWEEN THE TRAILER PARK AND THE
LAND PROPOSED FOR REDESIGNATION.

00:22:26.790,00:22:37.444
IN SUMMARY, THE ARP AMENDMENTS
ENCOURAGE A COMPLETE COMMUNITY
WITH SWERVE PARAMETERS ON THE –

00:22:37.446,00:22:42.286
SPECIFIC PARAMETERS ON THE LINE
AND USAGE.
A NUMBER OF OPEN HOUSES HAVE

00:22:42.288,00:22:48.197
BEEN HOSTED BY THE APPLICANTS
INCLUDING A CITY-LED OPEN HOUSE
HELD IN NOVEMBER 2010 TO PRESENT

00:22:48.199,00:22:53.831
THE ARP AMENDMENTS.
CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION

AMENDMENTS AND RECOMMENDS GIVING
THREE READINGS TO BYLAW 12 P
2011 AND 13 D 2011, AND THAT

00:23:00.140,00:23:03.840
CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION, YOUR
WORSHIP.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

00:23:03.842,00:23:10.246
YOU VERY MUCH, Mr. ORR.
ANY QUESTIONS OF CLARIFICATION
FOR ADMINISTRATION?

00:23:10.248,00:23:15.715
ANY QUESTIONS OF CLARIFICATION?
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> Mr. ORR, DO YOU KNOW

00:23:15.717,00:23:23.062
ROUGHLY HOW MANY SQUARE FEET
BASED ON THIS PLAN ARE PROPOSED
FOR COMMERCIAL AND OFFICE

00:23:23.064,00:23:32.768
COMPONENT AS A COMBINED TOTAL?
>> THE THREE CELLS ASSOCIATED
WITH THE — THERE’S A COMBINED

00:23:32.770,00:23:36.941
TOTAL OF 15.000 AND THAT IS
INTENDED TO BE A NEIGHBOURHOOD
CORE AREA.

00:23:36.943,00:23:44.520
THE OTHER AREAS — IN TERMS OF
THE SQUARE FOOTAGE THERE’S NOT
AN ABSOLUTELY.

00:23:44.522,00:23:47.325
TATION.
IT IS OF COURSE ALL SUBJECT TO
DEVELOPMENT PERMITS.

00:23:47.327,00:23:54.235
THERE ARE LIMITATIONS PLACED ON
THE USES IN THE AREAS.
HOWEVER, THE COMBINED TOTAL IS

00:23:54.237,00:23:57.640
SOMEWHAT UNDETERMINED DEPENDING
ON WHAT TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT
PERMIT AND APPLICATIONS PROCEED.

00:23:57.642,00:24:04.107
>> SO ROUGHLY 10 SQUARE FEET PER
SQUARE METRE?
>> WELL, 5,000 SQUARE METRES AND

00:24:04.109,00:24:09.199
EACH ONE OF THOSE CELLS FOR
POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL
DEVELOPMENT.

00:24:09.201,00:24:12.962
BUT THERE ARE OTHER POTENTIAL
USES OF COMMERCIAL.
HOWEVER, THE 15.000, THAT WOULD

00:24:12.964,00:24:18.160
BE THE ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT.
>> JUST FOR IN ORDER OF

00:24:18.162,00:24:23.863
MAGNITUDE CONVERTING THAT TO
SQUARE FEET.
>> I BELIEVE IT’S ABOUT 35.000

00:24:23.865,00:24:30.902
SQUARE FEET.
>> I THOUGHT IT WAS SOMEWHERE IN
THE ORDER OF MAGNITUDE OF

00:24:30.904,00:24:36.539
SOMEWHERE AROUND 10 PER SQUARE
FEET PER SQUARE METRE.
>> YES, THAT’S RELATIVELY CLOSE.

00:24:36.541,00:24:41.776
IN THAT RANGE YOU’RE LOOKING AT
150.000, APPROXIMATELY.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:24:41.778,00:24:49.138
THANKS FOR THAT CLARIFICATION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU, ALDERMAN CHABOT.

00:24:49.140,00:24:51.246
QUESTION OF CLARIFICATION,
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> Mr. ORR, YOU MENTIONED IT

00:24:51.248,00:24:55.448
IN PASSING BUT I WANTED TO
CLARIFY THAT THERE HAS BEEN AN
APPROVAL FOR 250 RESIDENTIAL

00:24:55.450,00:25:02.558
UNITS IN THIS AREA WHICH HAS YET
TO PROCEED.
BUT ANY FURTHER COMMERCIAL OR

00:25:02.560,00:25:07.699
RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT BEYOND
THAT IS DEPEND END ON THE
CONSTRUCTION — DEPENDENT ON THE

00:25:07.701,00:25:12.296
CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROPOSED
BEAUFORT TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY
INTERCHANGE.

00:25:12.298,00:25:15.771
>> , THAT, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR NEXT
YEAR?

00:25:15.773,00:25:19.375
>> 2013.
IT IS SCHEDULED TO BE COMPLETED
BY THE END OF 2013.

00:25:19.377,00:25:26.124
>> IF ALL GOES WELL.
>> IF ALL GOES WELL.
>> AND THE WEATHER STAYS

00:25:26.126,00:25:37.310
PREDICTABLE, YOU MIGHT SAY.
SO THE — ANY FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
AND KEYS ON THE GRADE SEPARATED

00:25:37.312,00:25:41.340
INTERCHANGE AT BEAUFORT AND
TRANSCANADA.
>> THAT IS CORRECT.

00:25:41.342,00:25:48.470
THAT CHANGE INITIATED IN 2008,
THE ARP, IT HAS BEEN INITIATED
TO 250 MAXIMUM.

00:25:48.472,00:25:57.350
IT IS OBVIOUSLY STILL PREVALENT
DEPENDING THE COMPLETION OF THE
INTERCHANGE.

00:25:57.352,00:26:08.360
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN HODGES.
QUESTION OF CLARIFICATION,

00:26:08.362,00:26:12.329
ALDERMAN POOTMANS?
>> IS THE FUNDING IN PLACE FOR
THAT INTERCHANGE?

00:26:12.331,00:26:16.999
>> AS FAR AS I KNOW IT IS.
I BELIEVE — MY COLLEAGUE FROM
TRANSPORTATION COULD CLARIFY

00:26:17.001,00:26:24.878
THAT, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, WITH
TRANSPORTATION PLANNING.

00:26:24.880,00:26:34.083
AS PART OF THE 2009-2018 PIIP
THAT WAS APPROVED BY COUNCIL,
THE BEAUFORT TRANSCANADA

00:26:34.085,00:26:40.631
INTERCHANGE WAS INCLUDED IN
THEIR FUNDING STARTING IN 2012.
THE ACTUAL BUDGET APPROVAL WOULD

00:26:40.633,00:26:49.508
COME FORWARD AS PART OF THE
2012-14 BPPC.
>> ARE THERE ANY ANTICIPATED

00:26:49.510,00:26:52.613
HICCUPS OR ROADBLOCKS ALONG THE
WAY?
>> THE CITY HAS INITIATED –

00:26:52.615,00:26:56.115
WE’VE COMPLETED THE FUNCTIONAL
PLANNING STUDY.
WE’VE INITIATED A LAND

00:26:56.117,00:27:01.849
ACQUISITION.
THE DETAILED DESIGN AND
CONSTRUCTION WOULD MOVE FORWARD

00:27:01.851,00:27:05.544
AS PER THAT SCHEDULE.
>> SO WE’RE ON SCHEDULE TO
CONSTRUCT THIS OVERPASS.

00:27:05.546,00:27:07.379
>> YEAH.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:27:07.381,00:27:10.223

ALDERMAN POOTMANS.
VERY WELL THEN.

00:27:16.809,00:27:19.746
ANY OTHER QUESTIONSES OF
CLARIFICATION?
FOR THE PUBLIC HEARING.

00:27:19.748,00:27:23.164
ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK
IN FAVOUR OF THIS ITEM?
ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK

00:27:23.166,00:27:35.012
IN FAVOUR.
>> YOUR WORSHIP AND MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL, WITH BROWN AND

00:27:35.014,00:27:40.855
ASSOCIATES PLANNING GROUP.
WE’RE THE APPLICANT ON BEHALF
MELCORP.

00:27:40.857,00:27:46.462
I’M GOING TO SPEAK VERY BRIEFLY
BECAUSE I’D LIKE TO ALLOW CHRIS
DELANEY TO SPEAK MORE TO

00:27:46.464,00:27:51.227
TRANSPORTATION.
WE WERE TABLED IN FEBRUARY TO
ALLOW FOR MORE COMMUNICATION TO

00:27:51.229,00:27:53.659
HAPPEN BETWEEN ADMINISTRATION
AND THE BOWNESS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION.

00:27:53.661,00:27:57.163
BOTH ADMINISTRATION AND
OURSELVES HAVE ACTIVELY PURSUED
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

00:27:57.165,00:28:00.129
THROUGH E-MAILS AS WELL AS
PROVIDING ADDITIONAL DETAILED
INFORMATION.

00:28:00.131,00:28:03.333
WE FEEL WE’VE SATISFIED THAT
REQUEST THROUGH THAT MOTION.
AND HOPE THAT YOU CAN SUPPORT

00:28:03.335,00:28:09.301
THE LAND USE TODAY.
I’D LIKE TO INVITE CHRIS DELANEY
TO SPEAK TO THE REST OF THE FIVE

00:28:09.303,00:28:16.738
MINUTES.
>> THANK YOU, CATHY.
MY NAME IS CHRIS DELANEY WITH

00:28:16.740,00:28:31.884
ISL ENGINEERING, WE WERE ME
MELCORP’S TRANSPORTATION GROUP.
THE SURROUNDING ROADWAYS

00:28:31.886,00:28:35.921
INCLUDING STONEY TRAIL AND
SARCEE TRAIL WHICH ARE THE MAJOR
SKELETAL ROAD CONNECTIONS IN THE

00:28:35.923,00:28:40.498
AREA.
THE CITY HAS PREVIOUSLY PLANNED
FOR DEVELOPMENT IN THIS AREA BY

00:28:40.500,00:28:45.139
PLANNING FOR THE INTERCHANGE AT
TRANSCANADA AND BEAUFORT ROAD
AND IN PLANNING THAT INTERCHANGE

00:28:45.141,00:28:50.975
THEY HAVE ACTUALLY ALLOCATED
TRANSPORTATION CAPACITY TO
VARIOUS ZONES WHETHER IT BE

00:28:50.977,00:28:54.648
GREENBRIAR, CANADA OLYMPIC PARK
OR OTHER LANDS SERVED BY THE
INTERCHANGE.

00:28:54.650,00:28:59.889
THE TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS THAT
WAS REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY THE
CITY AS PART OF THIS APPLICATION

00:28:59.891,00:29:05.923
CONFIRMS THAT THE GREENBRIAR
PROPOSAL DOES REMAIN WITHIN THE
CAPACITY ALLOCATED BY THE CITY

00:29:05.925,00:29:11.027
FOR THIS SITE AT THE
INTERCHANGE.
THE PROPOSAL THUS DOES NOT SEEK

00:29:11.029,00:29:14.795
ANY ADDITIONAL CAPACITY OR
IMPOSE ANY UNPLANNED
REQUIREMENTS ON THE CITY

00:29:14.797,00:29:19.763
TRANSPORTATION NETWORK.
ALSO, TO PROVIDE FAIR
DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR

00:29:19.765,00:29:26.640
ALL LANDOWNERS, THE CITY HAS SET
CERTAIN DEVELOPMENT CAPS AND
TRIGGERS IN THE CONDITIONS OF

00:29:26.642,00:29:30.451
APPROVALS, BOTH LIMITING THE
AMOUNT OF DEVELOPMENT THAT CAN
GO IN AHEAD OF THE INTERCHANGE

00:29:30.453,00:29:36.460
AND ALSO PROVIDING A CAP THAT
CANNOT BE EXCEEDED DURING THE
FIRST STAGE OF THE INTERCHANGE.

00:29:36.462,00:29:41.863
SO THERE’S FUTURE CONSTRUCTION
THAT WILL PRESENT A CAP AND A
TRIGGER AS WELL.

00:29:41.865,00:29:47.965
THESE CAPS ENSURE THAT ALL AREA
LANDOWNERS NOT JUST MELCORP CAN
FAIRLY ACCESS THE CAPACITY

00:29:47.967,00:29:58.740
THAT’S BEEN ALLOCATED TO THEM
FOR THIS INTERCHANGE AND SO
MELCORP HAS ACCEPTED THESE

00:29:58.742,00:30:25.641
TRIGGERS.
THE TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS IS
TRULY DOES MEET THE VISION OF

00:30:25.643,00:30:31.252
THE CALGARY TRANSPORTATION PLAN
AND THE MUNICIPAL SELECT PLAN
FOR BALANCED APPROACH TO

00:30:31.254,00:30:35.615
TRANSPORTATION DEMAND.
WITH THE MIXED LAND USE OFFICE,
MIXED USE MULTIFAMILY

00:30:35.617,00:30:40.477
RESIDENTIAL NO SINGLE FAMILY
HERE.
THERE IS A NATURAL TRAFFIC

00:30:40.479,00:30:44.485
INTERACTION WITH BONUS FOR OTHER
AMENITIES INCLUDING SCHOOLS,
RECREATION FACILITIES AND

00:30:44.487,00:30:49.696
SHOPPING.
BUT ONE OF THE REMARKABLE THINGS
FROM THE ANALYSIS IS THAT THIS

00:30:49.698,00:30:54.569
SITE WILL PRODUCE ESSENTIALLY
50/50 BALANCED TRANSPORTATION
DEMAND THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

00:30:54.571,00:30:58.808
SO IT IS QUITE UNLIKE THE
TRADITIONAL DEVELOPMENT
APPLICATIONS YOU SEE FOR

00:30:58.810,00:31:03.047
EXCLUSIVE RESIDENTIAL
COMMUNITIES OR MAJOR BIG BOX
COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENTS WHERE

00:31:03.049,00:31:09.814
YOU HAVE 60/40 SPLIT, 70/30
SPLIT THAT IMPOSE HUGE
RESTRICTIONS ON YOUR

00:31:09.816,00:31:13.483
TRANSPORTATION NETWORK.
THAT BALANCED APPROACH IS REALLY
A KEY THING TO HIGHLIGHT.

00:31:13.485,00:31:18.649
THE SITE ALSO PROVIDES READY
ACCESS FOR ALTERNATE MODES OF
TRANSPORTATION.

00:31:18.651,00:31:28.751
THE ADMINISTRATION HIGHLIGHTED
REGIONAL PATHWAY NETWORKS.
SO WE DO BELIEVE AND WE DO

00:31:28.753,00:31:33.790
BELIEVE THE ADMINISTRATION’S
REVIEW HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT THE
SITE DOES FIT WITHIN THE CITY’S

00:31:33.792,00:31:37.524
NETWORK PLANS FOR TRANSPORTATION
AND AS WELL SUPPORTED ON THAT
BASIS.

00:31:37.526,00:31:42.819
THANK YOU PERFOR.
[Inaudible]
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

00:31:42.821,00:31:47.786
YOU, Mr. DELANEY.
THERE’S A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS
HERE AND I MAY HAVE ONE TOO.

00:31:47.788,00:31:53.421
ALDERMAN STEVENSON?
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
Mr. DELANEY, WHEN — WITH THE

00:31:53.423,00:32:00.967
TRAFFIC IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY
OF BOWNESS, THIS WHOLE AREA OF
COURSE WE KNOW IT’S ALL GOING TO

00:32:00.969,00:32:06.770
BE REDEVELOPED.
BUT WOULD THE TRAFFIC IMPACT BE
GREATER IF THIS WAS DEVELOPED IN

00:32:06.772,00:32:12.245
RESIDENTIAL THAN IT IS WHEN IT
GOES COMMERCIAL?
HOW DOES THAT COMPARE?

00:32:12.247,00:32:16.880
>> GENERALLY THE TRAFFIC IMPACT
WOULD BE GREATER IF YOU HAD SORT
OF AN EXCLUSIVE LAND USE AND

00:32:16.882,00:32:22.219
THEN THE MAIN REASON BEING THAT
IT WOULD TEND TO CONCENTRATE
TRAFFIC IN ONE DIRECTION MORE

00:32:22.221,00:32:25.890
SO.
BY BEING A BALANCED AND MIXED
LAND USE APPROACH IT SORT OF

00:32:25.892,00:32:31.070
TAKES ADVANTAGE OF LATENT DEMAND
IN BOTH TRAVEL DIRECTIONS.
AND THEREFORE IT’S LESS

00:32:31.072,00:32:35.876
CONCENTRATED IN ANY PARTICULAR
DIRECTION ON THE ROAD NETWORK.
>> SO IF THE ENTIRE PACKAGE WAS

00:32:35.878,00:32:40.283
ALL HIGHER DENSITY RESIDENTIAL
IT WOULD LIKELY HAVE A BIGGER
IMPACT?

00:32:40.285,00:32:44.884
>> IT LIKELY WOULD, YES, WHEN
YOU CONSIDER THE ONE DIRECTION
OF TRAFFIC BEING THE PEAK THAT

00:32:44.886,00:32:50.027
YOU’RE ANALYZING, YES.
>> THANK YOU.
THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:32:50.029,00:32:54.832
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN STEVENSON.
ALDERMAN MAR?

00:32:54.834,00:32:59.544
>> THANK YOU.
I DO HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS
REGARDING THE TRANSPORTATION.

00:32:59.546,00:33:05.204
YOU JUST MENTIONED A MOMENT AGO
THAT THIS IS GOING TO HAVE
CONDUCTIVITY WITH PUBLIC

00:33:05.206,00:33:10.901
TRANSIT?
WHERE IS THAT PRIMARY TRANSIT
NETWORK IN YOUR PROPOSED SITE?

00:33:10.903,00:33:18.348
>> THE EXISTING TRANSIT IS
SOMEWHAT LIMITED IN THIS AREA.
I THINK WHAT — IT IS VERY

00:33:18.350,00:33:20.416
LIMITED.
WHAT CALGARY TRANSIT HAS LOOKED
TO HAVE HERE IS THAT THERE’S

00:33:20.418,00:33:27.354
GOING TO BE A PRIMARY TRANSIT
CONNECTION ON BOWNESS ROAD AND
ALSO SORT OF NORTH TOWARDS THE

00:33:27.356,00:33:36.904
CROWFOOT LRT TYPE AREA.
AND THAT WOULD BE TH THE ACCESS.
WE DO NO TRANSIT WAS LOOKING AT

00:33:36.906,00:33:42.841
USING BEAUFORT ROAD 83rd AS
A CONNECTOR TO A HUB TO THE
NORTH OF SOME KIND.

00:33:42.843,00:33:49.445
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT.
THIS IS ALSO AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN
A COMPLETE COMMUNITY.

00:33:49.447,00:33:58.644
IT HAS THE COMMERCIAL FOOD,
THINGS OF THAT NATURE.
WHAT IS THE RATIO FOR JOBS AND

00:33:58.646,00:34:02.581
PERSONS PER HECTARE IN
RELATIONSHIP TO WHAT OUR NEW MDP
IS SUGGESTING?

00:34:02.583,00:34:09.826
COULD YOU ANSWER THAT?
>> WE CAN.
AS PART OF THE ERP AMENDMENTS,

00:34:09.828,00:34:16.104
THE CITY DID THAT ANALYSIS ON
THE OVERALL COMMUNITY AND WE
TOOK A LOOK AT WHAT AFFECTS OUR

00:34:16.106,00:34:20.508
APPLICATION.
IN THE OLD — ARP AS EXISTS
TODAY, THE INTENSITY IS A

00:34:20.510,00:34:27.484
MINIMUM OF 45 TO A MAXIMUM OF 68
PEOPLE AND JOBS PER HECTARE.
WITH THE CHANGES, THE OVERALL

00:34:27.486,00:34:34.687
COMMUNITY GOES FROM 56 AS A
MINIMUM TO 78 AS A MAXIMUM.
AND THIS APPLICATION ITSELF IS

00:34:34.689,00:34:42.753
131 PEOPLE AND JOBS PER HECTARE.
>> SO YOU ACTUALLY SIGNIFICANTLY
EXCEED THE OBJECTIVES OF

00:34:42.755,00:34:46.089
PLANNING IN THIS PARTICULAR
INSTANCE.
NOW, WHAT IS THE PROJECTED

00:34:46.091,00:34:51.529
BUILDOUT IN TERMS OF YEARS FOR
THIS?
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA?

00:34:51.531,00:34:54.869
>> OF COURSE IT WILL — FOR THE
ENTIRE COMMUNITY OR FOR JUST
THIS –

00:34:54.871,00:34:59.809
>> FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
WELL, THE PORTION THAT WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT, OBVIOUSLY.

00:34:59.811,00:35:04.147
>> SO OF COURSE THIS WILL DEPEND
ON THE INTERCHANGE.
I BELIEVE THAT –

00:35:04.149,00:35:10.790
>> THAT’S MY POINT.
>> OUR INTENTION IS TO — WHILE
THE CONSTRUCTION AND DETAIL ARE

00:35:10.792,00:35:14.656
BEING SORTED OUT WITH THE
INTERCHANGE IS TO HAVE OUR
ENGINEERING ALL WORKED OUT AT

00:35:14.658,00:35:20.789
THE SAME TIME SO THAT AT THE
TIME — I DON’T KNOW IF ALL OF
YOU ARE AWARE, BECAUSE BEAUFORT

00:35:20.791,00:35:25.031
GOES OVER TOP OF THE TRANSCANADA
THERE’S A SIGNIFICANT CUT AND
THERE’S QUITE A BIT OF FILL THAT

00:35:25.033,00:35:32.039
OCCURS IN THE 83rd BEAUFORT
AREA THAT THERE COULD BE SOME
CONSTRUCTION THAT HAPPENS IN

00:35:32.041,00:35:35.472
TANDEM.
THE INTENTION IS TO BE ABLE TO
DO ALL THAT WORK IN TANDEM AND

00:35:35.474,00:35:45.553
THEN BE ABLE TO START WITH THEIR
DEVELOPMENT.
AS FAR AS AN OVERALL BUILDOUT,

00:35:45.555,00:35:50.659
I’LL POSSIBLY GET DENNIS TO
ANSWER THAT QUESTION.
>> THANK YOU.

00:35:53.729,00:36:04.265
>> YOUR WORSHIP, MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL, MY NAME IS DENNIS
INGLES, OUR BUILDOUT WOULD BE 5

00:36:04.267,00:36:07.099
TO 7 YEARS UPON COMPLETION OF
THE INTERCHANGE.
>> THIS IS ABSOLUTELY CONTINGENT

00:36:07.101,00:36:12.172
WON THE CITY OF CALGARY FUNDING
AND MOVING FORWARD ON THIS, THIS
INTERCHANGE AS PLANNED.

00:36:12.174,00:36:18.177
>> YOUR WORSHIP, CORRECT.
>> THANK YOU.
ONE LAST QUESTION — ACTUALLY,

00:36:18.179,00:36:21.726
NO, I THINK THAT’S SATISFACTORY.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:

00:36:21.728,00:36:28.165
ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, ONE OF THE
DIRECTIONS AFTER THE TABLING WAS

00:36:28.167,00:36:34.328
FURTHER COMMUNITY CONSULTATION.
AND I WONDERED IF YOU COULD GET
INTO THAT I I IN A BIT MORE DETL

00:36:34.330,00:36:41.416
AND EXPLAIN THE EFFORTS AS FAR
AS THE SHARING OF INFORMATION.
DO YOU HAVE A SUMMARY OF

00:36:41.418,00:36:44.785
THOSE — THE NATURE OF THOSE
CONVERSATIONS?
>> ABSOLUTELY.

00:36:44.787,00:36:48.787
I HAVE A TABLE HERE THAT I CAN
DISTRIBUTE.
I’VE GOT 35 COPIES THAT WE CAN

00:36:48.789,00:37:00.926
DISTRIBUTE TO MEMBERS.
AND THIS ESSENTIALLY OUTLINES…
KIND OF FROM START TO FINISH THE

00:37:00.928,00:37:06.430
AMOUNT OF ENGAGEMENT THAT HAD
HAPPENED.
WE SUBMITTED THE APPLICATION IN

00:37:06.432,00:37:10.227
DECEMBER 2009.
AND WE HAD A DEVELOPER INITIATED
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE IN FEBRUARY.

00:37:10.229,00:37:17.706
WE DID RECEIVE COMMENTS BACK
FROM AT THAT POINT IT WAS THE
RESIDENTS’ SOCIETY OF BOWNESS

00:37:17.708,00:37:22.071
RESIDENTS, NOT THE BOWNESS
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION.
WE DID RESPOND TO THEIR

00:37:22.073,00:37:26.510
QUESTIONS AND THOSE ARE IN YOUR
PACKAGE, IN YOUR AGENDA.
FROM THERE THE CITY — WE WENT

00:37:26.512,00:37:32.845
THROUGH THE CIRCULATION AND THE
CITY INITIATED THEIR PUBLIC OPEN
HOUSE IN NOVEMBER, AND THOSE

00:37:32.847,00:37:41.990
WERE MOSTLY DEALING WITH ARP
AMENDMENTS.
ADMINISTRATION MET WITH THE

00:37:41.992,00:37:46.427
BOWNESS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
PRIOR TO CPC.
THERE WERE SOME CONCERNS RAISED

00:37:46.429,00:37:48.963
THERE.
>> SUCH AS?
>> THAT’S THEIR LETTER THAT’S

00:37:48.965,00:37:53.905
INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE.
AND I’M NOT CERTAIN IF THERE’S
REPRESENTATIVES HERE FROM THE

00:37:53.907,00:37:58.214
BOWNESS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
TODAY TO SPEAK TO IT, IN THOSE
COMMENTS A LOT OF IT WAS THE

00:37:58.216,00:38:03.714
LANGUAGE.
TRYING TO MAINTAIN THE LOCAL
ORIENTED CHARACTER VERSUS SAY A

00:38:03.716,00:38:08.852
LARGE COMMERCIAL CENTRE THAT WAS
THERE, WHICH WE HEARD RIGHT FROM
THE BEGINNING WAS NOT A LARGE

00:38:08.854,00:38:14.948
REGIONAL COMMERCIAL AREA IN
GREENBRIAR.
SO WE WENT TO PLANNING

00:38:14.950,00:38:20.324
COMMISSION AND SINCE FEBRUARY WE
HAD INITIATED — OUR OFFICE
INITIATED CONVERSATION RIGHT OFF

00:38:20.326,00:38:24.929
THE BAT TO ASK IF WE COULD GET A
CLEAR UNDERSTANDING, TRY TO WORK
THROUGH ISSUES THAT THEY HAVE.

00:38:24.931,00:38:30.434
WE FOLLOWED UP A FEW TIMES, AND
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION GOT
BACK TO ADMINISTRATION.

00:38:30.436,00:38:38.307
AND ASKED FOR SOME MORE DETAILED
INFORMATION, SO HE ARE WE
HELPED — WE HELPED CITY SUPPLY

00:38:38.309,00:38:44.315
THAT TO THE GROUP.
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
REQUESTED A MEETING, IT DIDN’T

00:38:44.317,00:38:49.419
WORK FOR ALL PARTIES, WE TRIED
TO FIND ANOTHER TIME.
THERE WAS NO RESPONSE TO FIND

00:38:49.421,00:38:54.195
ANOTHER TIME.
WE TRIED TO MEET WITH THEM.
THERE WERE MANY E-MAILS THAT

00:38:54.197,00:38:58.302
OCCURRED BETWEEN OURSELVES AND
ADMINISTRATION TRYING TO SOLVE
THE ISSUES IN ADVANCE OF TODAY,

00:38:58.304,00:39:03.643
AND AS OF LAST WEEK WE RECEIVED
INFORMATION FROM THE
ADMINISTRATION THAT THE

00:39:03.645,00:39:08.377
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION SAID THEY
STAND ON THEIR E-MAIL — OR
THEIR INFORMATION FROM DECEMBER,

00:39:08.379,00:39:12.801
THAT’S THEIR POSITION.
THAT’S THE LATEST –
>> THE ORIGINAL E-MAIL, THE

00:39:12.803,00:39:15.737
ORIGINAL ISSUES EVEN DESPITE ALL
THE INFORMATION AND BACK AND
FORTH.

00:39:15.739,00:39:22.717
>> YEAH.
>> THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

00:39:22.719,00:39:28.793
YOU, ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART.
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:39:28.795,00:39:36.753
NOT SURE WHICH OF YOU WOULD CARE
TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION.
BUT INSOFAR AS THE CURRENT ROAD

00:39:36.755,00:39:42.894
INFRASTRUCTURE THAT EXISTS
TODAY, HOW MUCH DEVELOPMENT CAN
ACTUALLY OCCUR TODAY?

00:39:42.896,00:39:49.502
>> ON THE SITE TODAY?
TODAY AS PER THE — OH, DO YOU
WANT TO ANSWER THAT ONE?

00:39:49.504,00:39:55.033
>> THERE IS A CAP IN PLACE FOR A
MAXIMUM OF 250 UNITS BOTH
COMBINED IN THIS PLAN AREA AND

00:39:55.035,00:40:01.108
THE ONE THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY
APPROVED.
SO 250 RESIDENTIAL, NO

00:40:01.110,00:40:10.153
COMMERCIAL, NO OFFICE COMPONENT
WOULD BE PERMITTED.
EVEN TO BRING THOSE 250 ON LINE

00:40:10.155,00:40:18.665
MELCORP HAS BEEN AUTHOR
OBLIGATED TO PAY FOR THOSE IF
THEY BROUGHT THOSE ON LINE AHEAD

00:40:18.667,00:40:23.399
OF THE INTERCHANGE.
>> EVEN AT THAT THERE’S STILL
FURTHER LIMITATIONS FOR SIX

00:40:23.401,00:40:31.696
LANES VERSUS EIGHT LANES?
>> , THAT, YOUR WORSHIP.
THAT IS CORRECT, YOUR WORSHIP.

00:40:31.698,00:40:38.163
THAT ENSURES FAIRNESS FOR ALL
THE SURROUNDING LAND OWNERS.
>> AND INSOFAR AS THE INTERNAL

00:40:38.165,00:40:44.833
ROAD NETWORK, YOU INDICATED THAT
THE TRAFFIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT
INDICATES THAT IT WILL NOT

00:40:44.835,00:40:48.841
ADVERSELY IMPACT THE COMMUNITY.
WHAT ARE THE TRAFFIC PATTERNS
GOING TO BE LIKE?

00:40:48.843,00:40:55.151
IS IT GOING TO BE ALL ONE-WAYS,
SOME REVERSE TRAFFIC MOVEMENT?
WHAT DO YOU — WHAT IS THE

00:40:55.153,00:40:58.720
TRAFFIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND
VISION IN REGARDS TO THE TRAFFIC
MOVEMENT?

00:40:58.722,00:41:04.590
>> YOUR WORSHIP, WHAT THE TIA
INDICATES IS THAT THERE IS A
FAIRLY BALANCED DEMAND FOR THE

00:41:04.592,00:41:09.162
TRAFFIC HERE.
RIGHT NOW THE DEMAND IS
PREDOMINANTLY ONE DIRECTION, SO

00:41:09.164,00:41:15.338
IT’S OUT OF BONUS IN THE MORNING
TOWARDS THE — BOWNESS IN THE
MORNING AND THEN BACK IN IN THE

00:41:15.340,00:41:18.067
EVENING.
THAT WAS ALSO SORT OF THE
ORIGINAL VISION FOR THIS AS A

00:41:18.069,00:41:22.705
RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY BUT NOW
WITH THE MIXED USE IT’S ROUGHLY
ABOUT 50/50 IS WHAT THE BALANCE

00:41:22.707,00:41:26.976
WILL BE IN.
SO AS MANY PEOPLE GOING IN IN
THE MORNING AS ARE COMING OUT,

00:41:26.978,00:41:32.611
AND THAT HELPS BETTER UTILIZE
THAT EMPTY SPACE ON THE ROAD, SO
TO SPEAK.

00:41:32.613,00:41:37.721
>> IS THAT WHAT FORMED THE
DECISION TO BRING IN MORE OF AN
OFFICE COMPONENT?

00:41:37.723,00:41:44.187
>> THAT WAS PART OF THE REASON,
YES.
AND IT REALLY IS ABOUT MEETING

00:41:44.189,00:41:50.134
THE CITY’S VISION TO BALANCED,
COMPLETE COMMUNITY.
>> THE COMMUNITY INDICATED

00:41:50.136,00:41:57.007
CONCERNS ABOUT CCOR 3 AND THE
POTENTIAL FOR HAVING BIG BOX
DEVELOPMENT, AND YOU DID ADDRESS

00:41:57.009,00:42:02.142
IT IN SUMMARY TYPE FASHION IN
THE REPORT HERE.
I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD

00:42:02.144,00:42:05.315
ELABORATE A LITTLE FURTHER ON
THAT.
>> WHEN WE FIRST HAD SUBMITTED

00:42:05.317,00:42:12.595
THE APPLICATION WE SUBMITTED
THAT WHOLE SOUTHERN CELL, THE
LIGHTER PINK, AS CCOR 3 IN ORDER

00:42:12.597,00:42:18.591
TO ACCOMMODATE THE OFFICE AND
THE RETAIL KIND OF MORE AS A
SLASH BETWEEN THE WHOLE SITE.

00:42:18.593,00:42:22.496
DUE TO THEIR CONCERNS, THAT’S
WHERE WE BROKE THE SITE INTO TWO
TO ILLUSTRATE IT’S NOT GOING TO

00:42:22.498,00:42:29.731
BE A BIG BOX COMMERCIAL AREA.
THAT WE’D FOCUS THE OFFICE ON
THAT WESTERN PARCEL AND THAT THE

00:42:29.733,00:42:35.705
NEIGHBOURHOOD RETAIL WOULD BE
THIS EASTERN PARCEL TO ALLEVIATE
THOSE CONCERNS.

00:42:35.707,00:42:43.078
>> SO BY REDUCING THE SITE IN
HALF, YOU DON’T BELIEVE THAT YOU
COULD ATTRACT A MAJOR ANCHOR

00:42:43.080,00:42:46.429
TENANTS IN THE AREA.
>> WE DO NOT.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP, NO

00:42:46.431,00:42:49.474
FURTHER QUESTIONS.
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I

00:42:49.476,00:42:57.642
MIGHT JUMP IN — SORRY.
WE’LL DO ALDERMAN KEATING AND
THEN I’LL ASK SOME QUESTIONS.

00:42:57.644,00:43:00.815
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
UNDERSTANDING NOT MUCH CAN GO
AHEAD UNTIL THE INTERCHANGE IS

00:43:00.817,00:43:05.853
THERE AND THE NEED TO WORK IN
TANDEM COMPLETELY BECAUSE THAT
MAKES ECONOMIC SENSE ON BOTH

00:43:05.855,00:43:11.157
SIDES OF THE TABLE, BUT WHAT
WOULD HAPPEN IF THIS REPORT WAS
DELAYED UNTIL JUNE TO THE

00:43:11.159,00:43:17.622
PLANNING OR TO THE PROJECT IN
GENERAL?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE DELAY COMES

00:43:17.624,00:43:22.653
AT THE EXPENSE OF THE
ENGINEERING CAPACITY THAT WE
HAVE.

00:43:22.655,00:43:28.418
WE GENERALLY TRY TO BE — TO
TIME THIS INTERCHANGE WITH OUR
ENGINEERING.

00:43:28.420,00:43:32.925
SO TOWARDS THE END OF THE…
[Indiscernible]
WE ANTICIPATE HAVING OUR

00:43:32.927,00:43:37.098
ENGINEERING COMPLETED AT SUCH
TIME AS THE CITY WOULD HAVE
THEIRS.

00:43:37.100,00:43:41.340
IF WE STALL BEHIND ON THE
ENGINEERING DRAWINGS, WHEN IT
COMES TO THE CONSTRUCTION SIDE

00:43:41.342,00:43:47.884
OF THINGS, AND THERE’S THE DIRT
MOVEMENT THAT’S GOT TO HAPPEN
BETWEEN HIGHWAY 1 AND BEAUFORT

00:43:47.886,00:43:52.852
BECAUSE OF THE CUT ON THE
HIGHWAY AND THE FILL ON THE
BEAUFORT ROADSIDE, YOU’D HAVE A

00:43:52.854,00:43:56.987
DELAY IN THAT.
SO WHAT IT DOES, IT COMES BACK
TO THE EXPENSE OF THE CITY IN

00:43:56.989,00:44:00.917
TERMS OF WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO
DO — HOW THEY’RE GOING TO
MANAGE THAT DIRT BETWEEN

00:44:00.919,00:44:07.252
APPROVALS ON OUR SIDE AND THEM
COMMENCING CONSTRUCTION.
>> THANK YOU.

00:44:07.254,00:44:11.290
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN KEATING.
I HAVE A COUPLE OF LINES OF

00:44:11.292,00:44:15.396
QUESTIONING I WANT TO FOLLOW
WITH.
ONE IS THAT I HAVE HEARD FROM

00:44:15.398,00:44:22.098
OTHER FOLKS WHO ARE INTERESTED
IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA THAT
INDEED THERE’S VERY LITTLE

00:44:22.100,00:44:29.574
DEMAND FOR OFFICE AND QUITE A
BIT OF DEMAND FOR BIG-BANK OFBOX
RETAIL.

00:44:29.576,00:44:33.641
I’M INTERESTED TO HEAR YOUR
PERSPECTIVE ON THAT SINCE I
THINK I’M HEARING SOMETHING A

00:44:33.643,00:44:39.687
LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM YOU.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, WE LOOK AT IT
FROM A COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE ON

00:44:39.689,00:44:45.720
THE NORTH SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.
AS OPPOSED TO A PURE RETAIL
CENTRE.

00:44:45.722,00:44:51.654
WE OWN A SIGNIFICANT LAND
PORTION TO THE WEST PORTION OF
VALLEY RIDGE, AND IT’S OUR

00:44:51.656,00:44:57.134
INTENT HERE TO SCALE IT BACK TO
MORE OF A NEIGHBOURHOOD-SIZED
COMMERCIAL COMPONENT.

00:44:57.136,00:45:00.867
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: YOU’RE
THINKING GROCERY STORE,
DRUGSTORES, THAT SORT OF THING?

00:45:00.869,00:45:04.106
>> YOUR WORSHIP, CORRECT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: AND
DID YOU SAY IT’S ALSO INTENDED

00:45:04.108,00:45:07.276
TO SERVE THE FOLKS IN VALLEY
RIDGE?
>> NO.

00:45:07.278,00:45:11.849
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THERE’S NO DIRECT ACCESS.
>> THERE’S A NOTION OF A FUTURE

00:45:11.851,00:45:18.380
RETAIL COMPONENT, BIGGER BOX
RETAIL COMPONENT, WITHIN THE
WEST USAP AND THAT’S WHERE WE’VE

00:45:18.382,00:45:21.552
SEEN THE LARGER BOX GOING
FURTHER TO THE WEST.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THAT’S

00:45:21.554,00:45:27.089
VERY HELPFUL, THANK YOU.
Mr. DELANEY, THIS MAY NOT BE A
FAIR QUESTION FOR YOU AND YOU

00:45:27.091,00:45:32.763
DON’T HAVE TO ANSWER IT BUT
SINCE YOU MENTIONED IT, YOU
TALKED ABOUT THE TII SHOWING THE

00:45:32.765,00:45:36.501
CAPACITY.
INTERCHANGE AS CURRENTLY PLANNED
SHOULD BE ADEQUATE.

00:45:36.503,00:45:40.572
AS YOU ALL A KNOW, THERE HAVE
BEEN A NUMBER OF CHANGES TO WHAT
IS BEING PLANNED ON THE OTHER

00:45:40.574,00:45:43.946
SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.
DO YOU KNOW IF THE
TRANSPORTATION STUDIES THAT HAVE

00:45:43.948,00:45:50.518
BEEN DONE TO DATE — I’M GOING
TO ASK Mr. VANDER PUTIN LATER
AS WELL, DO THEY INCORPORATE THE

00:45:50.520,00:45:59.855
POTENTIAL CHANGES ON THE OTHER
SIDE?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, Mr.

00:45:59.857,00:46:06.458
Mr. VANDERPUTIN MIGHT BE BEST
PLACED TO ANSWER THE QUESTION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

00:46:06.460,00:46:09.232
YOU.
THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR THESE

00:46:09.234,00:46:13.670
FOLK?
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE
TODAY.

00:46:13.672,00:46:17.677
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN
FAVOUR OF THIS PROPOSAL?
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN

00:46:17.679,00:46:21.454
FAVOUR?
ALL RIGHT.
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST

00:46:21.456,00:46:27.959
THIS PROPOSAL?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION?

00:46:33.957,00:46:39.554
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I COME HERE
WITH THREE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE
BOWNESS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

00:46:39.556,00:46:43.667
AND I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT
THEY BE ALLOWED TO SPEAK RIGHT
AFTER ME.

00:46:43.669,00:46:52.452
SO THAT THE FLOW OF THE
PRESENTATION IS PRESERVED.
THANK YOU.

00:46:52.454,00:46:59.128
YOUR WORSHIP AND MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL, MY NAME IS JOE
LISERDOVICH.

00:46:59.130,00:47:02.761
I SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE BOWNESS
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION OF WHICH I
AM A DIRECTOR.

00:47:02.763,00:47:12.637
THE CURRENT VERSION OF BYLAW 7 P
95 KNOWN AS THE BOWNESS AREA
REDEVELOPMENT PLAN OR BOWNESS

00:47:12.639,00:47:19.413
ARP CAME INTO EFFECT IN
JUNE 2008 AND WAS A RESULT OF AN
INTENSE PROCESS OF COMMUNITY

00:47:19.415,00:47:26.199
CONSULTATION THAT IMPLEMENTED
THE POLICIES NOW SUPPORTED BY
PLAN IT CALGARY.

00:47:26.201,00:47:31.603
THEY SUPPORT HIGHER WALKABLE AND
WHOLE COMMUNITIES WITH LINEAR
OPEN GREEN SPACE AND ADEQUATE

00:47:31.605,00:47:39.871
PUBLIC TRANSIT.
IN SHAR SHARP CONTRAST, THE PROD
AMENDMENTS NOW IN FRONT OF

00:47:39.873,00:47:43.675
COUNCIL HAS BEEN GENERATED WITH
NO COMMUNITY CONSULTATION
THROUGH A PROCESS IN WHICH CITY

00:47:43.677,00:47:49.623
PLANNERS APPEAR TO BE MAINLY
ACCOMMODATING DEVELOPER
REQUIREMENTS BY CREATING A DENSE

00:47:49.625,00:47:55.463
COMMERCIAL CORE WITH LARGE
RETAIL SPACES AND PARKING LOTS
IN AN AREA CURRENTLY DESIGNATED

00:47:55.465,00:48:01.571
AS PREDOMINANTLY RESIDENTIAL.
THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS WOULD
ALLOW FOR A VEHICLE-DEPENDENT

00:48:01.573,00:48:29.715
COMMUNITY
ARRANGED BY THE CITY PLANNING
DEPARTMENT ON NOVEMBER 4th,

00:48:29.717,00:48:34.456
2010.
THIS EVENT FOCUSED PRIMARILY ON
THE GREENBRIAR AREA PHASE II

00:48:34.458,00:48:39.161
OUTLINE PLAN PROPOSED AND
GLOSSED OVER THE AMENDMENTS TO
THE ARP.

00:48:39.163,00:48:45.207
THE EVENT WAS ADVERTISED USING
ROAD SIGNS, THE INVITATIONS TO
COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES WERE

00:48:45.209,00:48:51.346
DELIVERED LATE.
IN ADDITION TO OBJECTING TO THE
CONTENTS OF THE PROPOSED ARP

00:48:51.348,00:48:59.824
AMENDMENTS, THE BCA STRENUOUSLY
OBJECTS TO THE VEILED PROCESS
THROUGH WHICH THE BYLAW WAS

00:48:59.826,00:49:04.787
ARRIVED AT AND THE WAY IN WHICH
IT WAS DOWNPLAYED AS PART OF A
DEVELOP OPEN HOUSE.

00:49:04.789,00:49:11.559
NOW, REGARDING THE GREENBRIAR
STUDY AREA, THE CURRENT BOWNESS
ARP IS BYLAW 7 P 95.

00:49:11.561,00:49:16.608
CONTRARY TO SOUND POLICIES
CONTAINED IN THE BONUS ARP AND
PLAN IT CALGARY, THE BCA

00:49:16.610,00:49:20.738
PERCEIVES A TREND THAT
DISREGARDS THESE POLICIES IN
FAVOUR OF DEVELOPERS AND AT THE

00:49:20.740,00:49:26.074
EXPENSE OF LONG-TERM SUSTAINABLE
COMMUNITY.
IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO

00:49:26.076,00:49:31.819
NOTE THAT THE PROPOSED
AMENDMENTS TO THE BOWNESS ARP
AFFECT THE ENTIRE GREENBRIAR

00:49:31.821,00:49:39.917
SPECIAL STUDY AREA.
NOT JUST THE MELCORP LANDS IN
CELL 3.

00:49:39.919,00:49:45.064
THESE ARE CELL 1 GREENBRIAR PARK
SITE AND CELL 2 GREENWOOD
VILLAGE.

00:49:45.066,00:49:57.996
I REFER TO THE TABLE IN EXHIBIT
7 — THANK YOU.
THAT SHOWS THAT ITEM 33 OF THE

00:49:57.998,00:50:06.133
PROPOSED BYLAW 12 P 2011 LIMITS
THE TOTAL AREA RETAIL USES IN
THE GREENBRIAR STUDY AREA TO

00:50:06.135,00:50:14.376
19.500 SQUARE METRES PLUS OR
MINUS 975 SQUARE METRES.
THAT RESTRICTION APPLIES TO THE

00:50:14.378,00:50:21.778
ENTIRE GREENBRIAR STUDY AREA.
THE TABLE IN EXHIBIT 7 ALSO
SHOWS THAT THE PROPOSED BYLAW

00:50:21.780,00:50:32.217
ESTABLISHING NOMINAL LIMITS OF
5,000 SQUARE METRES FOR RETAIL
SITES USED IN CELLS 1, 2 AND 3.

00:50:32.219,00:50:38.390
PROVISION IS MADE FOR ADDITIONAL
RETAIL SPACE IN SITES A AND B IF
UNDERGROUND PARKING IS PROVIDED.

00:50:38.392,00:50:46.665
AS SHOWN IN EXHIBIT 7, THE TOTAL
PROPOSED RETAIL SPACE IN CELL 3
ADDS UP TO 19.500 SQUARE METRES

00:50:46.667,00:50:52.603
PLUS OR MINUS 975 SQUARE MEETS.
THIS IS THE TOTAL SPACE ALLOWED
BY THE PROPOSED BYLAW FOR THE

00:50:52.605,00:50:58.175
ENTIRETY GREENBRIAR STUDY AREA.
IF PASSED, THE PROPOSED
AMENDMENTS WOULD ENTRENCH IN A

00:50:58.177,00:51:05.117
BYLAW TO DISCRIMINATING
ALLOCATION OF RETAIL SPACE TO
ONE PARCEL OWNER AND WOULD

00:51:05.119,00:51:10.731
EXCLUDE TWO ADJACENT SIMILARLY
SIZED PARCELS.
THE BCA IS CONCERNED THE

00:51:10.733,00:51:15.975
PROPOSED AMENDMENT WOULD DRIVE A
HIGH COMMERCIAL CONCENTRATION IN
ONE PARCEL.

00:51:15.977,00:51:21.383
THIS IS OPPOSITE TO THE CONCEPT
OF A WHOLE COMMUNITY SUPPORTED
BY PLAN IT CALGARY AND BY THE

00:51:21.385,00:51:30.377
CURRENT ARP.
I WILL ASK ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION TO PROCEED

00:51:30.379,00:51:34.918
WITH THE NEXT STATEMENT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I’M
JUST GOING TO PRETEND THAT ALL

00:51:34.920,00:51:39.796
OF YOU ARE PROTECTING AS
INDIVIDUALS.
SO — PRESENTING AS INDIVIDUALS.

00:51:39.798,00:51:45.434
SO YOU EACH GET FIVE MINUTES,
AND THEN WE’LL TAKE SOME
QUESTIONS AT THE END.

00:51:45.436,00:51:51.949
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I’LL CLARIFY
SOMETHING.
YOU’VE GIVEN ME A HANDOUT I

00:51:51.951,00:51:54.346
THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE
DISTRIBUTING TO MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL.

00:51:54.348,00:51:58.917
DO YOU HAVE YOUR COPIES HANDY?
>> YES, THEY ARE AVAILABLE.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: WE CAN

00:51:58.919,00:52:04.582
DISTRIBUTE THOSE IF YOU’VE GOT
35 COPIES.
>> I DIDN’T SEE THEM AND I

00:52:04.584,00:52:10.529
WANTED TO KNOW IF HE HAD THEM.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN HODGES.

00:52:16.269,00:52:19.067
>> YOUR WORSHIP, ARE THERE ANY
OTHER QUESTIONS?
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I

00:52:19.069,00:52:26.436
DON’T SEE ANY BUT WE’LL RESERVE
THE RIGHT TO CALL YOU BACK
SHOULD ANYONE HAVE ANY.

00:52:26.438,00:52:35.451
>> YOUR WORSHIP AND MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL, I SPEAK AT THE REQUEST
OF THE BOWNESS COMMUNITY

00:52:35.453,00:52:37.716
ASSOCIATION OF WHICH I AM A
MEMBER.
PROPOSALS FOR MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS

00:52:37.718,00:52:43.495
IN THE SOUTHWEST SIDE OF BOWNESS
CONTINUE TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE
BOWNESS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

00:52:43.497,00:52:49.062
FOR COMMENT IN A PIECEMEAL
FASHION.
EVEN THE DEVELOPMENT OF JUST

00:52:49.064,00:52:59.342
CELL 3, GREENBRIAR, AND MELCORP
LANDS HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED FOR
COMMENTS IN PHASES, LEAVING CELL

00:52:59.344,00:53:07.073
1, THE RADKE PHASE, OUT WITH NO
ATTEMPT TO INTEGRATE THESE
SIGNIFICANT PROJECTS FROM THE

00:53:07.075,00:53:13.451
POINT OF VIEW OF THE COMMUNITY
AND THE CITY.
THIS DISJOINTED PRESENTATION

00:53:13.453,00:53:19.289
PREVENTS A CLEAR PICTURE OF THE
LARGE-SCALE IMPACT THAT THESE
DEVELOPMENTS WILL HAVE ON THE

00:53:19.291,00:53:25.654
BOWNESS AND THE NEIGHBOURING
COMMUNITIES AND THE CITY AS A
WHOLE.

00:53:25.656,00:53:30.991
A LACK OF AN OVERARCHING
DEVELOPMENT MASTER PLAN FOR THE
SOUTHWEST SIDE OF BOWNESS IS

00:53:30.993,00:53:37.834
EVIDENT.
IF WE ADD TO THE MIX THE RECENT
DEVELOPMENT AND PROPOSAL OF WIN

00:53:37.836,00:53:44.733
SPORT LAND THAT ARE ON THE SOUTH
SIDE OF THE TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY,
THE INADEQUACIES OF THESE

00:53:44.735,00:53:55.715
INFRASTRUCTURES IN THE SOUTHWEST
BOWNESS SURFACE QUICKLY.
AS SHOWN IN EXHIBIT 8,

00:53:55.717,00:53:59.019
GREENBRIAR IS NATURALLY ISOLATED
FROM THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY
OF BOWNESS.

00:53:59.021,00:54:06.431
IT HAS NO ACCESS TO STONEY TRAIL
OR TO THE TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY,
OTHER THAN A SINGLE POINT ENTRY

00:54:06.433,00:54:12.575
AT BEAUFORT ROAD.
BOWNESS PARK AND WOODS HOMES AT
THE SOUTHWEST SIDE OFFERS NO

00:54:12.577,00:54:17.465
ACCESS ROAD.
THE COMMUNITY OF GREENWOOD
VILLAGE TO THE NORTH IS PRIVATE

00:54:17.467,00:54:22.626
AND FENCED.
83rd STREET NORTHWEST TO THE
SOUTH OF THE SINGLE POINT OF

00:54:22.628,00:54:28.001
ACCESS TO THE COMMUNITY OF
BOWNESS.
THE GREENBRIAR AND GREENBRIAR

00:54:28.003,00:54:34.069
PARKSIDE DEVELOPMENTS WILL
INCREASE THE POPULATION OF
BOWNESS BY AN ESTIMATED 50%.

00:54:34.071,00:54:42.518
THE COMBINATION OF MELCORP, CAD
E.R. AND WIN SPORT DEVELOPMENTS
WILL ADD — RADKE AND WIN SPORT

00:54:42.520,00:54:45.983
DEVELOPMENTS WILL ADD
SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE TRAFFIC IN
THE AREA.

00:54:45.985,00:54:54.651
THE PROPOSED INTERCHANGE IS A
TEN-YEAR DESIGN THAT IS NOT
ANTICIPATED, THE TOTAL BUILT-OUT

00:54:54.653,00:55:02.498
POTENTIAL OF GREENBRIAR SPECIAL
STUDY AREA.
SUSPECADJACENT TO THE HIGHWAY

00:55:02.500,00:55:12.215
COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND WIN
SPORT, NOR DID THEY ANTICIPATE
THE SHORTCOMING TRAFFIC IN THE

00:55:12.217,00:55:16.357
NORTHWEST.
TRAFFIC SIMULATIONS SHOWN AT THE
PLANNING — TO THE PLANNING AND

00:55:16.359,00:55:23.755
DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE OF THE
BOWNESS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION BY
THE CITY OF CALGARY TRAFFIC

00:55:23.757,00:55:27.653
ENGINEERS MADE THIS ABUNDANTLY
CLEAR.
THE BOWNESS COMMUNITY

00:55:27.655,00:55:31.034
ASSOCIATION IS CONCERNED WITH
THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT’S
PIECEMEAL SUBMISSION OF THIS

00:55:31.036,00:55:38.705
PROJECT AND THE ABSENCE OF THE
OVERAVERAGING PLAN FOR THE –
OVERARCHING PLAN FOR THE AREA.

00:55:38.707,00:55:43.111
PIECEMEAL SUBMISSIONS DO NOT
EMBRACE THE TYPE OF GOOD URBAN
PLANNING THAT THE CITY IS

00:55:43.113,00:55:51.515
CAPABLE OF AND DESERVES.
THANK YOU.
[Inaudible]

00:55:51.517,00:55:54.750
>> THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE
TODAY.
SO, IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS, WHAT

00:55:54.752,00:55:59.760
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THIS
PIECE OF LAND?
>> I THINK THAT EVERYTHING HAS

00:55:59.762,00:56:09.391
TO GO BACK TO THE PLANNING PHASE
AND WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE AREA
AS A WHOLE AS OPPOSED TO ALL THE

00:56:09.393,00:56:14.957
PIECEMEALS THAT WE’RE LOOKING
AT.
WE SAW A MODEL OF WHAT HAPPENED

00:56:14.959,00:56:23.227
WITH JUST THE ADDITION OF THE
WIN SPORT DEVELOPMENT, AND THE
TRAFFIC WAS HORRENDOUS AT THAT

00:56:23.229,00:56:28.899
POINT.
SO TO ADD ON ALL OF THESE OTHER
DEVELOPMENTS IS A BIG CONCERN.

00:56:28.901,00:56:33.372
>> SO IS YOUR CONCERN ABOUT
TRAFFIC AND THAT’S YOUR ONLY
CONCERN?

00:56:33.374,00:56:37.104
>> NO, THERE’S SEVERAL DIFFERENT
CONCERNS.
IT DOESN’T FOLLOW PLAN IT AS

00:56:37.106,00:56:42.366
WELL, AND WE WILL BE TALKING
ABOUT THAT AS WELL.
>> OKAY.

00:56:42.368,00:56:51.584
SO IT’S SOMETIMES MY EXPERIENCE,
NOT ALWAYS, BUT WHEN SOME PEOPLE
ASK FOR MASTER PLANS, IT’S OFTEN

00:56:51.586,00:56:56.576
BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT REALLY
WANTING TO SEE DEVELOPMENT.
BUT I’M JUST WONDERING WHAT KIND

00:56:56.578,00:57:04.590
OF DEVELOPMENT WOULD YOU LIKE TO
SEE IN THIS LOCATION?
IS IT — I MEAN –

00:57:04.592,00:57:11.868
>> WE DO WANT TO SEE DEVELOPMENT
IN THAT AREA.
BUT WE HAVE TO BE VERY CLEAR ON

00:57:11.870,00:57:16.776
THE TRAFFIC CONCERNS.
WE ALSO WANT TO BE ABLE TO BE
CONNECTED TO THE OTHER — THE

00:57:16.778,00:57:23.541
REST OF THE COMMUNITY.
THIS SEEMS TO BE VERY ISOLATED.
WE WANT TO SEE PATHWAYS, WE WANT

00:57:23.543,00:57:28.521
TO SEE BICYCLE LANES, WE WANT TO
SEE BETTER TRANSIT IN THAT AREA.
WE’RE CONCERNED ABOUT THE

00:57:28.523,00:57:33.932
INTERCHANGE ITSELF AND HOW THAT
INTERCHANGE IS GOING TO AFFECT
ACCESS INTO THE REST OF THE

00:57:33.934,00:57:37.137
COMMUNITY.
SO THERE’S SEVERAL DIFFERENT
ISSUES.

00:57:37.139,00:57:44.682
>> SO YOU WANT LESS VEHICULAR
TRAFFIC CUTTING THROUGH YOUR
NEIGHBOURHOOD AND MORE

00:57:44.684,00:57:48.679
PERMEABILITY INTO THIS NEW
COMMUNITY VIA OTHER MODES OF
TRANSPORTATION.

00:57:48.681,00:57:54.049
IS THAT WHAT YOU’RE SUGGESTING?
>> YES, FOR SURE.
>> OKAY.

00:57:54.051,00:57:59.803
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN FARRELL.

00:57:59.805,00:58:05.506
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, YOU’VE
MENTIONED THE GREENBRIAR

00:58:05.508,00:58:10.933
PARKSIDE DEVELOPMENT TO THE WEST
OF THE MELCORP SITE.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO POINT THAT OUT

00:58:10.935,00:58:17.311
ON THE VIEW GRAPH, PLEASE?
PERHAPS Mr. McKENZIE CAN
GIVE YOU A HAND THERE.

00:58:17.313,00:58:21.940
THAT’S IT.
NOW, THAT APPLICATION IS IN
CIRCULATION.

00:58:21.942,00:58:25.677
CORRECT?
>> YES.
>> AND IT’S APPROXIMATELY

00:58:25.679,00:58:30.054
ANOTHER 50 ACRES OF RESIDENTIAL
AND SOME PROPOSED COMMERCIAL
DEVELOPMENT.

00:58:30.056,00:58:33.796
CORRECT?
>> YES.
>> AND DO YOU RECALL HOW MANY

00:58:33.798,00:58:43.916
RESIDENTIAL UNITS THEY’RE
PROPOSING THERE?
I CAN TELL YOU.

00:58:43.918,00:58:46.113
>> 854?
>> OVER 800.
THAT’S THE CONCERN YOU’RE

00:58:46.115,00:58:51.050
RAISING ABOUT THE PIECE MEDICAL
A– PIECEMEAL APPROACH,
APPLICATIONS COMING IN

00:58:51.052,00:58:55.327
SEPARATELY WHICH THE PLANNING
DEPARTMENT CAN’T CONTROL BUT
IT’S A FACT THERE ARE OTHER

00:58:55.329,00:58:57.263
APPLICATIONS RIGHT IN THE
NEIGHBOURHOOD, RIGHT IN THE
NEARBY AREA.

00:58:57.265,00:59:00.165
>> YES.
>> THANK YOU.
I WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT, YOUR

00:59:00.167,00:59:03.434
WORSHIP.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN HODGES.

00:59:03.436,00:59:08.607
ALDERMAN MAR?
>> THANK YOU.
AND, I’M SORRY, I DIDN’T CATCH

00:59:08.609,00:59:17.064
YOUR NAME.
>> JUDY VAN DEN BRINK.
>> YOU’VE OBVIOUSLY DONE A LOFT

00:59:17.066,00:59:21.736
WORK HERE AND CARE DEEPLY ABOUT
YOUR COMMUNITY.
HOW WOULD YOU SAY THE

00:59:21.738,00:59:27.631
COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE
DEVELOPER AND THE CITY OF
CALGARY AND YOURSELVES AS THE

00:59:27.633,00:59:33.608
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN
SINCE THIS WAS TABLED?
>> WELL, THE ONLY INFORMATION

00:59:33.610,00:59:41.020
THAT I ACTUALLY RECEIVED THAT
THERE WAS CONVERSATION GOING
BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY AND THE

00:59:41.022,00:59:46.363
DEVELOPERS IS THROUGH THE OPEN
HOUSE PROCESS.
AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE, THAT WAS

00:59:46.365,00:59:50.896
THE ONLY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION
THAT I WAS AWARE OF.
>> AND YOU ARE ONE OF THE

00:59:50.898,00:59:54.268
DIRECTORS OF THE –
>> NO, I’M NOT A DIRECTOR.
I’M A COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

00:59:54.270,00:59:56.836
MEMBER.
>> OKAY.
I’M SORRY.

00:59:56.838,01:00:00.607
I THOUGHT YOU WERE ONE OF THE
DIRECTORS OF THE COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION.

01:00:00.609,01:00:05.650
PERHAPS MY COMMENTS SHOULD BE
DIRECTED TO ONE OF THEM INSTEAD.
THAT’S MY QUESTION FOR NOW.

01:00:05.652,01:00:09.685
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN MAR.

01:00:09.687,01:00:12.218
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?
OKAY.
THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

01:00:12.220,01:00:28.560
>> THANK YOU.
>> MORNING.
>> MORNING.

01:00:28.562,01:00:34.099
YOUR WORSHIP AND MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL, MY NAME IS NICKY SMYTH.
THIS THING MOVES!

01:00:34.101,01:00:38.009
AND I’M SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF
THE BOWNESS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION OF WHICH I’M THE

01:00:38.011,01:00:41.612
DIRECTOR.
WE WISH TO BRING TO ATTENTION OF
COUNCIL THE IMPACT ON BOWNESS OF

01:00:41.614,01:00:46.009
THE AMENDMENTS TO THE –
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE
BOWNESS ARP.

01:00:46.011,01:00:52.444
WE WOULD AT THE SAME TIME LIKE
TO DRAW TO YOUR ATTENTION
INCONSISTENCIES IN THE

01:00:52.446,01:00:57.025
DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED TO
COUNCIL WITH REGARDS TO PROPOSED
DENSITY.

01:00:57.027,01:01:05.899
THE CPC 2011-018 SUMMARY THAT
YOU HAVE RECEIVED INDICATES AN
INCREASE IN RESIDENTIAL DENSITY

01:01:05.901,01:01:12.270
IN CELL 3 TO 34.26 UNITS PER
HECTARE.
ANTICIPATING A TOTAL OF 835

01:01:12.272,01:01:21.050
UNITS.
A DENSITY OF 34.26 UNITS PER
HECTARE WOULD ACTUALLY ALLOW FOR

01:01:21.052,01:01:26.489
873 UNITS.
THE PROPOSED TEXT AMENDMENT FOR
THE ARP TALKS ABOUT 32 UNITS PER

01:01:26.491,01:01:34.765
HECTARE FOR THE ENTIRE
GREENBRIAR STUDY AREA WHICH
WOULD BE A TOTAL OF IN CELL 3,

01:01:34.767,01:01:43.102
822 UNITS.
MAP 3 C IN THE SAME PROPOSED
AMENDMENT DESCRIBED AN ALLOWABLE

01:01:43.104,01:01:50.901
MAXIMUM OF 800 UNITS, WHICH IS
THE EQUIVALENT OF 31.1 UNITS PER
HECTARE.

01:01:50.903,01:01:59.240
THE CURRENT BOWNESS ARP STATES
UNDER POLICIES GENERAL THE
MINIMUM RESIDENTIAL DENSITY IS

01:01:59.242,01:02:09.475
20 UNITS PER HECTARE TO A
MAXIMUM OF 30 UNITS PER HECTARE
BASED ON GROSS DEVELOPABLE AREA.

01:02:09.477,01:02:18.379
EXHIBIT 1 OWS THAT THE CURRENT
ARP CAPS THE NUMBER OF UNITS IN
CELL 3 OF THE GREENBRIAR AREA AT

01:02:18.381,01:02:24.160
764.
THE PROPOSED ARP TEXT AMENDMENT
INCREASES THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF

01:02:24.162,01:02:30.258
UNITS PER HECTARE BY 6.7%
THROUGHOUT THE GREENBRIAR
SPECIAL STUDY AREA.

01:02:30.260,01:02:37.203
WE BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION THE
PROPOSED MAP 3 C GREENBRIAR
DENSITY EXHIBIT 2 THAT SHOULD

01:02:37.205,01:02:46.449
THIS AMENDMENT TO THE BOWNESS
ARP BE APPROVED THE ALLOWED
DENSITY CELLS 1 TO 5 WOULD

01:02:46.451,01:02:49.852
INCREASE AND THIS IS NOT
REFLECTED IN THE FIGURES ON THE
MAP PROTECTED.

01:02:49.854,01:02:57.192
THE CELL 5 INCREASES ARE NOT
REPRESENTED, AND THE TOTALS IN
THE ALLOWABLE RESIDENTIAL

01:02:57.194,01:03:03.280
DENSITY RANGES ARE INACCURATE.
THEY ARE IN FACT THE FIGURES
FROM THE EXISTING ARP.

01:03:03.282,01:03:11.127
SO JUST TO — WE’VE ATTACHED IN
YOUR PACKAGE THAT WE BROUGHT TO
SHOW YOU WHAT THE ACTUAL CORRECT

01:03:11.129,01:03:17.631
FIGURES SHOULD BE.
THE CURRENT POPULATION OF
BOWNESS IS ESTIMATED AT 11.000

01:03:17.633,01:03:25.208
RESIDENTS, EXHIBIT 4.
IN THE WORST CASE, AMONGST ALL
THE VARIED AND CONFUSING FIGURES

01:03:25.210,01:03:31.179
PRESENTED AND ASSUMING A
CONSERVATIVE AVERAGE OF 2.5
RESIDENTS PER UNIT, THE

01:03:31.181,01:03:37.918
DEVELOPMENT OF CELL 3 ALONE AS
PROPOSED WILL RESULT IN
APPROXIMATELY 2500 ADDITIONAL

01:03:37.920,01:03:42.628
BOWNESS RESIDENTS.
THAT’S AN INCREASE OF 20% IN THE
POPULATION OF BOWNESS.

01:03:42.630,01:03:49.400
IF WE THEN CALCULATE THE TOTAL
POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT UNDER THE
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS, THE

01:03:49.402,01:03:55.734
POPULATION OF THE GREENBRIAR
SPECIAL STUDY AREA RISES TO
APPROXIMATELY 6300 PEOPLE WHICH

01:03:55.736,01:04:01.678
IS AN INCREASE OF OVER 50% IN
THE POPULATION OF BOWNESS.
THE OVERALL EFFECT OF THE

01:04:01.680,01:04:07.722
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS WOULD BE TO
CREATE A VEHICLE-DEPENDENT AND
INCOMPLETE COMMUNITY, SINCE

01:04:07.724,01:04:13.128
RESIDENTS WILL HAVE TO CIRCULATE
MAINLY THROUGH 83rd STREET
NORTHWEST TO GAIN ACCESS TO

01:04:13.130,01:04:18.762
COMMUNITY AMENITIES SUCH AS
RECREATION FACILITIES, SCHOOLS,
SHOPPING AREAS, BOWNESS PARK AND

01:04:18.764,01:04:24.006
OTHER GREEN SPACES.
THE COMMUNITY HALL AND LOCAL
EVENTS THAT WOULD NOT BE

01:04:24.008,01:04:29.569
AVAILABLE IN THE GREENBRIAR
AREA.
THE OVERALL IMPACT OF THIS

01:04:29.571,01:04:36.051
PROPOSED AMENDMENT MAY INCREASE
THE POPULATION OF BOWNESS BY
MORE THAN 50% IN AN AREA THAT IS

01:04:36.053,01:04:40.215
GEOGRAPHICALLY ISOLATED FROM THE
REST OF THE COMMUNITY WITH ONLY
ONE ACCESS ROAD.

01:04:40.217,01:04:48.459
THE CURRENT BOWNESS ARP STATES
UNDER POLICIES GENERAL THE
PREDOMINANT LAND USE IN

01:04:48.461,01:04:53.898
GREENBRIAR AREA SHALL BE
RESIDENTIAL.
THE PROPOSED BYLAW ADDS TO THE

01:04:53.900,01:04:58.271
SPECIFIC POLICY COMMUNITY
ORIENTED COMMERCIAL INCLUDING
RETAIL AND OFFICE USES MAY BE

01:04:58.273,01:05:05.045
PERMITTED WHERE APPROPRIATE.
OFFICE USES ARE SPECIFICALLY
EXCLUDED FROM THE CURRENT ARP AS

01:05:05.047,01:05:12.331
THEY TYPICALLY RESULT IN TRAFFIC
OF REGIONAL POPULATION AND WOULD
CONTRADICT ITEMS IN THE

01:05:12.333,01:05:15.395
GREENBRIAR SECTION OF THE
CURRENT ARP THAT READ AS
FOLLOWS: UNDER POLICIES

01:05:15.397,01:05:20.794
COMMERCIAL, MIXED USE,
COMMERCIAL USES SHALL BE LOCALLY
ORIENTED, COMMERCIAL USES THAT

01:05:20.796,01:05:26.359
ARE ORIENTED TO A REGIONAL
POPULATION SHALL NOT BE ALLOWED.
COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENTS MAY

01:05:26.361,01:05:33.440
INCLUDE GROCERY AND RETAIL
STORES, LIVE, WORK, RESTAURANTS
AND PERSONAL USES, HIGH TRAFFIC

01:05:33.442,01:05:38.004
GENERATING USES SHALL BE
DISCOURAGED.
THE SCALE OF COMMERCIAL

01:05:38.006,01:05:43.444
OPERATIONS SHOULD BE COMPATIBLE
WITH THE RESIDENTIAL CONTEXT AND
SHOULD NOT NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE

01:05:43.446,01:05:47.347
QUALITY OF THE RESIDENTIAL
ENVIRONMENT.
THE COMBINATION OF INCREASED

01:05:47.349,01:05:52.721
POPULATION AND THE PRESENCE OF A
COMMERCIAL CORE WILL ATTRACT
REGIONAL TRAFFIC THAT CANNOT BE

01:05:52.723,01:05:58.463
SUPPORTED BY THE PROPOSED ROAD
INFRASTRUCTURE.
IN TERMS OF THE VISION FOR THE

01:05:58.465,01:06:04.489
COMMUNITY IN THAT AREA, THERE IS
ONE.
AND IT’S WELL-EXPRESSED IN THE

01:06:04.491,01:06:10.689
CURRENT ARP AND IS THE RESULT OF
A LONG PROCESS OF CONSULTATION
BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY AND IT’S A

01:06:10.691,01:06:16.398
RECENT ONE, 2008.
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: DON’T

01:06:16.400,01:06:22.512
GO TOO FAR, MISS SMYTH.
I THINK ALDERMAN MAR HAS A
QUESTION FOR YOU HERE.

01:06:22.514,01:06:27.173
>> THANK YOU.
AND SO YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD MY
COMMENT TO THE PREVIOUS SPEAKER

01:06:27.175,01:06:32.347
WITH REGARDS TO THE DIALOGUE
THAT’S BEEN GOING ON BETWEEN THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION AS ONE OF

01:06:32.349,01:06:37.452
THE DIRECTORS.
AND THE APPLICANT AND THE CITY
OF CALGARY.

01:06:37.454,01:06:41.515
CAN YOU ELABORATE A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT THAT?
I UNDERSTAND THERE WAS AN OPEN

01:06:41.517,01:06:45.425
HOUSE BUT WAS THERE SOME
DIALOGUE AS WELL?
>> I THINK JOE IS THE BEST

01:06:45.427,01:06:50.528
PERSON TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION.
FORMALLY I WAS ALSO THE
CHAIRPERSON OF THE SOCIETY OF

01:06:50.530,01:06:58.100
BOWNESS RESIDENTS AND THAT WAS
THE INITIAL COMMUNITY CONTACT
THAT WAS MADE.

01:06:58.102,01:07:05.613
WE SUBMITTED OUR COMMENTS,
EVENTUALLY INFORMATION WAS
FORWARDED BACK THAT CONTAINED

01:07:05.615,01:07:09.987
MISS OBERG’S RESPONSE TO OUR
COMMENTS.
AND THEN WHATEVER PROCESS

01:07:09.989,01:07:18.295
HAPPENS, HAPPENS WITHIN –
BETWEEN THE APPLICANT AND THE
CITY PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

01:07:18.297,01:07:27.606
WE WERE THEN ASKED TO RE-COMMENT
SPECIFICALLY WITH REGARDS TO THE
OPEN HOUSE.

01:07:27.608,01:07:34.488
WE ACTUALLY ONLY LEARNED ABOUT
IT THROUGH THE COURTESY OF MISS
OBERG WHO HAD CONTACTED ME AND

01:07:34.490,01:07:38.193
LET ME KNOW THAT IT WAS GOING
ON.
>> AND WHO HOSTED THE OPEN

01:07:38.195,01:07:41.290
HOUSE?
WAS THAT PUT ON BY THE DEVELOPER
OR CITY OF CALGARY?

01:07:41.292,01:07:51.163
>> IT WAS THE CITY OF CALGARY,
BUT IT WAS…
IT WAS LARGELY A PRESENTATION

01:07:51.165,01:07:57.666
AND DISCUSSION OF THE OUTLINE
PLAN.
AND THE LAND USE REDESIGNATIONS.

01:07:57.668,01:08:05.588
THE AMENDMENTS — THE PROPOSED
AMENDMENTS TO THE ARP WERE A
LITTLE BIT HARD TO FIGURE OUT,

01:08:05.590,01:08:09.256
EVEN.
THEY WEREN’T WRITTEN IN ANY
SPECIFIC FORMAT THAT WE COULD

01:08:09.258,01:08:15.263
TAKE HOME WITH US AND GO OH,
THAT’S WHAT THIS MEANS.
AND THERE WAS ALSO — THERE WAS

01:08:15.265,01:08:20.896
JUST AN ASSUMPTION ABOUT LET’S
DISCUSS THE OUTLINE PLAN.
>> THESE ARE COMPLICATED.

01:08:20.898,01:08:25.931
ARPs AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE
ARE REALLY QUITE COMPLICATED.
>> IT’S OUR CONTENTION THAT

01:08:25.933,01:08:30.405
THEY’RE ACTUALLY TWO SEPARATE
ISSUES.
THIS PARTICULAR OUTLINE PLAN

01:08:30.407,01:08:35.712
CAN’T GO AHEAD WITHOUT THE
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE ARP.
AND WE FELT THAT THOSE TWO

01:08:35.714,01:08:40.983
THINGS NEEDED TO BE PULLED OUT
AS SEPARATE ISSUES.
>> AND YOU FEEL THAT THIS IS IN

01:08:40.985,01:08:45.216
CONFLICT WITH THE ARP,
OBVIOUSLY.
>> YES.

01:08:45.218,01:08:50.679
AND IN FACT EVEN MORE SO — EVEN
WITH THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO
THE ARP, NOT ALL OF WHICH WE

01:08:50.681,01:08:54.852
OBJECT TO, SOME OF THEM ARE
QUITE GOOD.
BUT THERE’S SOME VERY CRITICAL

01:08:54.854,01:09:02.856
ONES, THE ONES THAT WERE BROUGHT
UP RIGHT NOW, THAT ARE IN
CONTRADICTION TO THE EXISTING

01:09:02.858,01:09:08.797
ARP AND TO PHRASES AND SECTIONS
OF THE PROPOSED ARP.
>> RIGHT.

01:09:08.799,01:09:16.178
WHAT I’VE BEEN HEARING FROM THE
COMMUNITY HAS REALLY BEEN
CONCERNS — ACCESS OBVIOUSLY IS

01:09:16.180,01:09:20.852
A SIGNIFICANT ISSUE.
>> YES.
>> THE INTERCHANGE BEING ONE OF

01:09:20.854,01:09:27.062
THE MAJOR, MAJOR TRANSPORTATION
COMPONENTS.
IF WE PROCEEDED WITH THE

01:09:27.064,01:09:31.532
INTERCHANGE, AND COULD ASSURE
YOU THAT THAT WAS GOING TO BE
DONE, WHAT DOES THAT DO TO YOUR

01:09:31.534,01:09:37.645
COMFORT LEVEL, IF YOU WILL?
>> FIRST, MARILYN WILL BE
TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THE

01:09:37.647,01:09:42.521
TRAFFIC STUFF ANYWAY.
BUT I’D LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT
THE DESIGN FOR THE INTERCHANGE

01:09:42.523,01:09:51.998
IS A 10-YEAR-OLD DESIGN.
AND DID NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT
THE — FIRST OF ALL, WHEN IT WAS

01:09:52.000,01:09:57.737
DESIGNED IT DIDN’T TAKE INTO
ACCOUNT AMENDMENTS TO THE ARP
THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR THE KIND OF

01:09:57.739,01:10:00.935
INCREASE THAT WE’RE TALKING
ABOUT.
AND IT DIDN’T TAKE INTO ACCOUNT

01:10:00.937,01:10:03.974
DEVELOPMENT THAT MIGHT BE
HAPPENING ON THE WIN SPORT
LANDS.

01:10:03.976,01:10:12.018
IT ALSO DIDN’T TAKE INTO
ACCOUNT — I DON’T THINK THAT
ANYBODY ANTICIPATED OVER TIME

01:10:12.020,01:10:16.781
HOW MUCH DEVELOPMENT WAS GOING
TO BE HAPPENING TO THE WEST.
SO THERE’S A TRAFFIC FLOW THAT

01:10:16.783,01:10:23.757
HAPPENS ON THE TRANSCANADA THAT
NO MATTER WHAT THAT DESIGN DOES,
IT IS STILL GOING TO BE

01:10:23.759,01:10:29.694
BOTTLENECKING.
THERE’S A BRIDGE OVER THE BOW
RIVER ON TRANSCANADA LEADING

01:10:29.696,01:10:34.205
INTO MONTGOMERY, FOR INSTANCE,
THAT ISN’T GOING TO BE WIDENED
AS PART OF THIS WHOLE DESIGN.

01:10:34.207,01:10:41.608
SO TRAFFIC’S GOING TO BE BACKING
UP AND BOTTLENECKING THERE.
SIMILARLY, THE TRAFFIC STUDIES

01:10:41.610,01:10:51.084
THAT WE LOOKED AT DIDN’T LOOK AT
HOW THE TRAFFIC WAS GOING TO BE
FLOWING OFF OF 83rd INT BOWNESS

01:10:51.086,01:10:56.127
ROAD.
IT DOESN’T TALK ABOUT ANY OF THE
INTERNAL COMMUNITY STRESSES THAT

01:10:56.129,01:11:01.061
WILL HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF THE
INTERCHANGE.
>> I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE ALL OF

01:11:01.063,01:11:05.571
THE COMMENTS THAT YOU’RE SAYING.
I KNOW THAT YOU’VE GOT SOMEBODY
IN YOUR GROUP THAT’S GOING TO

01:11:05.573,01:11:09.968
TALK ABOUT TRAFFIC SPECIFICALLY.
AND THEN I’LL HAVE SOME
QUESTIONS FOR OUR OWN

01:11:09.970,01:11:13.775
ADMINISTRATION.
I JUST HAVE ONE MORE QUESTION
WITH REGARDS TO THE MDP, THE

01:11:13.777,01:11:26.359
MUNICIPAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN, AKA
PLAN IT CALGARY.
NOW, PLAN IT CALGARY HAS TALKED

01:11:26.361,01:11:34.323
ABOUT THE DENSIFICATION
CONTAINED IN A COMMUNITY.
GREENBRIAR APPLICATION THAT YOU

01:11:34.325,01:11:40.860
WERE TALKING ABOUT NOW
ACCOMPLISHES SIGNIFICANCELY MORE
THAN WHAT WE WOULD –

01:11:40.862,01:11:45.422
SIGNIFICANTLY MORE THAN WHAT WE
WOULD NORMALLY DISCUSS FOR A NEW
APPLICATION IN PLAN IT CALGARY.

01:11:45.424,01:11:50.232
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT,
GIVEN THAT FACT THAT WE ARE
TALKING ABOUT DENSITY AND WE ARE

01:11:50.234,01:11:54.896
TALKING ABOUT COMPLETE
COMMUNITIES WHERE HOPEFULLY
PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO NOT ONLY

01:11:54.898,01:12:00.537
LIVE NEAR WHERE THEY WORK BUT
ALSO BE ABLE TO SHOP AND ACCESS
DIFFERENT TYPES OF AMENITIES AND

01:12:00.539,01:12:06.114
REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC AND
THE CONGESTION THAT WE’RE
SPEAKING ABOUT?

01:12:06.116,01:12:13.622
>> THERE’S SEVERAL POINTS TO
RAISE AROUND THAT.
THE FIRST ONE IS THAT THE HIGH

01:12:13.624,01:12:16.287
EMPLOYMENT CENTRES ARE OFFICE
TOWERS.
AND UNLESS THEY’RE GOING TO

01:12:16.289,01:12:23.230
GUARANTEE THAT THE RESIDENTS OF
THAT PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT GET TO
HAVE JOBS IN THOSE TOWERS,

01:12:23.232,01:12:29.564
YOU’RE NOT GUARANTEEING A
LIVE-WORK SITUATION.
THE DENSITY THAT’S PROPOSED

01:12:29.566,01:12:36.204
IS — AND, AGAIN, THAT WILL BE
ADDRESSED BY SOMEBODY ELSE,
DENSITY THAT IS PROPOSED IS ONE

01:12:36.206,01:12:44.848
SINGLE MULTI-RESIDENTIAL NOT
MIXED HOUSING.
I THINK WHAT WE’RE REALLY SAYING

01:12:44.850,01:12:50.589
IS THAT WE WOULD LIKE THE
CURRENT ARP, WHICH DOES
INCORPORATE ALL THE ELEMENTS

01:12:50.591,01:12:55.190
THAT ARE DISCUSSED IN PLAN IT
CALGARY AND WAS DEVELOPED
BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY AND THE

01:12:55.192,01:13:01.426
PLANNING DEPARTMENT, WE FEEL
THAT THAT SHOULD BE HONOURED.
>> DO YOU MIND — I JUST WANT TO

01:13:01.428,01:13:05.332
BACK YOU UP ONE LITTLE BIT.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY NOT MIXED
HOUSING?

01:13:05.334,01:13:16.179
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?
>> IF YOU LOOK AT THE PROPOSED
DC AND THE HOUSING — THE

01:13:16.181,01:13:29.279
HOUSING DESIGNATION THAT’S BEING
ASKED FOR, IT’S MC — SO
YOU’RE — DO YOU MEAN, LIKE,

01:13:29.281,01:13:33.822
CONDOS AND FLATS AND THINGS LIKE
THAT?
IS THAT WHAT YOU’RE MEANING?

01:13:33.824,01:13:39.694
I JUST WAS KEYED INTO THAT TERM
WHEN YOU SAID IT’S NOT MIXED
HOUSING.

01:13:39.696,01:13:43.367
AND I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT YOU
MEANT BY THAT.
>> AGAIN, JOE CAN BETTER ANSWER

01:13:43.369,01:13:59.652
THAT — OR WHO…
[Inaudible]
>> YOUR WORSHIP, ONE OF THE

01:13:59.654,01:14:06.066
CONCERNS THAT WE HAVE IS THAT
THERE IS ONLY ONE TYPE OF
MULTI-RESIDENTIAL PROPOSED FOR

01:14:06.068,01:14:14.570
THIS DEVELOPMENT.
WHAT WE ENVISAGE AND WHAT PLAN
IT CALGARY ENVISAGES IS RICHNESS

01:14:14.572,01:14:25.645
IN THE TYPE OF UNITS THAT ARE
BROUGHT INTO A COMMUNITY AS WELL
AS THE AVAILABILITY OF OPEN

01:14:25.647,01:14:32.092
SPACES, GREEN AREAS, WALKING
SPACES.
NONE OF THAT IS AVAILABLE IN

01:14:32.094,01:14:41.135
THIS PARTICULAR UNIT.
THIS IS A GREAT CONGLOMERATE OF
COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS WITH

01:14:41.137,01:14:50.305
PARKING LOTS, WITH THE
POSSIBILITY OF EXPANDING ANOTHER
4,500 SQUARE METRES OF

01:14:50.307,01:14:55.415
COMMERCIAL RETAIL IF UNDERGROUND
PARKING IS PROVIDED, WHICH
FURTHER INCREASES THE TRAFFIC

01:14:55.417,01:15:06.255
INTO THE AREA.
SO THIS PARTICULAR AREA DOES NOT
HAVE ANY WALKABLE SPACE.

01:15:06.257,01:15:14.422
MOREOVER, MUNICIPAL RESERVE THAT
IS SUPPOSED TO BE ALLOCATED TO
THE TUNE OF 10% AS A MINIMUM HAS

01:15:14.424,01:15:21.729
BEEN REDUCED AND CASH IN LIEU IS
BEING PROPOSED FOR IT.
SO IT FURTHER MAKES THIS A LESS

01:15:21.731,01:15:28.661
LIVEABLE COMMUNITY, A LESS
WALKABLE COMMUNITY, A COMMUNITY
THAT DOES NOT HAVE LINEAR GREEN

01:15:28.663,01:15:34.270
SPACES THAT WE WOULD ALL LIKE TO
SEE.
SO THIS INITIALLY WAS MEANT TO

01:15:34.272,01:15:41.410
BE A RESIDENTIAL AREA.
BY CHANGING THE ARP, IT’S MADE
INTO COMMERCIAL.

01:15:41.412,01:15:47.043
AND ONCE IT’S MADE COMMERCIAL,
NOW IT’S FURTHER EXACERBATED BY
THE FACT THAT MUNICIPAL RESERVE

01:15:47.045,01:15:50.614
IS BEING CONVERTED INTO CASH IN
LIEU.
[Please Stand By]

01:16:59.181,01:17:05.819
THE ONE THAT EXISTS IS VERY,
VERY THIN.
>> OKAY.

01:17:05.821,01:17:10.289
>> SO YOU WOULD BE, I DON’T
WANT TO PUT WORDS IN YOUR
MOUTH, SIR, BUT YOU WOULD BE

01:17:10.291,01:17:15.597
SUPPORTIVE OF AN INCREASED
TRAFFIC NODE IN THAT AREA, IS
THAT CORRECT?

01:17:15.599,01:17:18.502
>> OF COURSE I WOULD BE
SUPPORTIVE OF IT.
>> OKAY, THANK YOU.

01:17:18.504,01:17:23.733
>> I DON’T WANT THAT TO BE
CONSTRUED AS SUPPORTING THE
CURRENT DEVELOPMENT.

01:17:23.735,01:17:31.741
IN OTHER WORDS, I DON’T SEE,
TO BE QUITE HONEST, I DON’T
SEE THAT PROVIDING TRANSIT IS

01:17:31.743,01:17:39.648
GOING TO ELIMINATE THE ACCESS
THAT THE POPULATION IN THIS
AREA WILL REQUIRE TO

01:17:39.650,01:17:45.722
FACILITIES THAT ARE IN THE
CORE OF BONESS THAT WILL NOT
BE PROVIDED IN THIS AREA WITH

01:17:45.724,01:17:50.695
CLOSE TO 5,000, 6,000 MORE
RESIDENTS, THERE ARE NO
SCHOOLS BEING PROPOSED HERE.

01:17:50.697,01:17:55.930
THERE ARE NO OTHER FACILITIES,
SO THE TRAFFIC INTO THE
COMMUNITY IS GOING TO BE

01:17:55.932,01:18:03.360
THROUGH 83rd STREET.
SO THE CONCERN HERE IS PERHAPS
NOT SO MUCH, YES, LET’S HAVE

01:18:03.362,01:18:08.196
TRANSIT, BUT THAT WILL NOT
ALLEVIATE THE ISSUE OF
INCREASED TRAFFIC INTO THE

01:18:08.198,01:18:15.709
COMMUNITY BECAUSE THE SERVICES
THAT ARE REQUIRED FOR 5,000,
6,000 MORE RESIDENTS ARE NOT

01:18:15.711,01:18:20.149
PROVIDED IN THIS AREA.
>> NO, AND I APPRECIATE THAT.
MY QUESTION REGARDING TRANSIT

01:18:20.151,01:18:26.454
WAS ACTUALLY JUST TO SORT OF
FLUSH OUT WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS
ARE IN THE NDP AS A WHOLE.

01:18:26.456,01:18:34.190
>> I THINK THE GENERAL
CONCLUSION AROUND THAT IS THAT
THAT AREA, REGARDLESS OF WHAT

01:18:34.192,01:18:39.256
TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT GOES IN
THERE, THAT AREA IS GOING TO
NEED BETTER TRANSIT ACCESS.

01:18:39.258,01:18:42.562
IT’S VERY POORLY SERVICED AT
THIS POINT IN TIME.
INADEQUATELY SERVICED AT THIS

01:18:42.564,01:18:46.998
POINT IN TIME, SO LOGICALLY,
WHATEVER GOES IN THERE IS
GOING TO REQUIRE BETTER

01:18:47.000,01:18:49.722
TRANSIT.
>> NO, AND I APPRECIATE THAT.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

01:18:49.724,01:18:55.762
BUT YOU’VE MADE YOUR CASE
QUITE NICELY, AND I DO HAVE
OTHER QUESTIONS FOR

01:18:55.764,01:18:59.407
ADMINISTRATION REGARDING SOME
OF THE THINGS WE’VE BROUGHT UP
BUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

01:18:59.409,01:19:05.279
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> AM I DONE?
>> NO, WE’RE NOT DONE YET.

01:19:05.281,01:19:12.924
LOOK AT ALL THESE LIGHTS.
YOU’VE ELICITED SOMETHING
EXCITING, MISS SMYTH.

01:19:12.926,01:19:17.933
ALDERMAN CHABOT.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
I’M JUST READING SOMETHING

01:19:17.935,01:19:27.771
HERE BRIEFLY.
I’M JUST CURIOUS AS TO WHAT
YOUR UNDERSTANDING IS IN

01:19:27.773,01:19:33.581
REGARDS TO THE MUNICIPAL
RESERVE AND WHAT’S OWING, IS
THERE — DO YOU KNOW IF THERE

01:19:33.583,01:19:40.022
WAS A PREVIOUS AGREEMENT FOR A
CASH IN LUMP PAID TO THE MD?
I THOUGHT I SAW SOMETHING IN

01:19:40.024,01:19:44.490
THE REPORT SPECIFICALLY TO
THAT.
>> I THINK IT’S IN THE CPC

01:19:44.492,01:19:50.455
SUBMISSION, IT’S IN THE
GENERAL SUMMARY AT THE FRONT.
IT’S NOT THE 10% IN CASH IN

01:19:50.457,01:19:54.167
LIEU.
IT’S A PERCENTAGE OF IT.
>> NO, NO, WHAT I WANT TO KNOW

01:19:54.169,01:20:00.407
IS DO YOU KNOW IF THERE WAS
ANY AMOUNT PAID TO THE MD OF
ROCKYVIEW?

01:20:00.409,01:20:04.742
>> I HAVE NO IDEA.
>> PRIOR TO ANNEXATION.
I’M GOING TO HAVE TO ASK THAT

01:20:04.744,01:20:07.946
QUESTION OF ADMINISTRATION
AFTER.
BUT YOU DO REALIZE, OF COURSE,

01:20:07.948,01:20:12.122
THAT IN THE COMMERCIAL SITE,
IT IS STANDARD PRACTISE FOR US
TO ACCEPT CASH IN LIEU OF

01:20:12.124,01:20:20.863
GREEN SPACE?
>> I THINK OUR CONTENTION
AROUND THIS IS THAT THE

01:20:20.865,01:20:30.273
ORIGINAL INTENT, AND IT’S A
FAIRLY RECENTLY-WRITTEN INTENT
THAT WAS INCORPORATED IN THE

01:20:30.275,01:20:36.148
CURRENT ARP, TO EVEN
CONTEMPLATE THAT AS PART OF A
CONCEPT OF WHOLE COMMUNITY

01:20:36.150,01:20:41.458
THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE
DEVELOPED WITHIN THE CONTEXT
OF PLANET CALGARY POLICIES

01:20:41.460,01:20:45.124
THAT WERE COMING INTO PLACE AT
THAT TIME.
>> IF WE LOOK AT JUST THE

01:20:45.126,01:20:50.865
RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT, IT
WOULD CERTAINLY BE FAR IN
EXCESS OF 10%, JUST BASED ON

01:20:50.867,01:20:56.999
WHAT I SEE HERE AS THE AMOUNT
OF GREEN SPACE THAT’S BEING
PROVIDED IN COMPARISON TO JUST

01:20:57.001,01:21:00.062
STRICTLY RESIDENTIAL
COMPONENT.
>> I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT

01:21:00.064,01:21:07.965
YOU JUST ASKED ME.
>> THAT’S QUITE ALL RIGHT.
I’M JUST SAYING THAT THE 10%

01:21:07.967,01:21:13.999
MUNICIPAL RESERVE DEDICATION,
IF YOU LOOK AT IT STRICTLY
FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE

01:21:14.001,01:21:19.137
RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT, THAT
IT’S SIGNIFICANTLY MORE THAN
10% OF THE RESIDENTIAL

01:21:19.139,01:21:22.738
COMPONENT.
>> WITH ALL DUE RESPECT,
ALDERMAN CHABOT, I’M NOT SURE

01:21:22.740,01:21:26.644
THAT’S A QUESTION MISS SMYTH
CAN REALLY ANSWER HERE AND
THIS IS TIME –

01:21:26.646,01:21:30.680
>> I’M GOING TO ASK YOU A
QUESTION SPECIFICALLY RELATED
TO YOUR PRESENTATION WHERE YOU

01:21:30.682,01:21:38.919
SAID CONSERVATIVELY-SPEAKING,
ASSUMING 2.5 RESIDENTS PER
DWELLING UNIT, I’M WONDERING

01:21:38.921,01:21:50.736
HOW YOU CAME ABOUT THAT
NUMBER.
>> WE CAME ABOUT IT BASED ON

01:21:50.738,01:21:57.046
AN AVERAGE THAT WE THOUGHT
WOULD BE A LOW AVERAGE FOR THE
NUMBER OF RESIDENTS THAT COULD

01:21:57.048,01:22:01.540
BE ACCOMMODATED.
>> OKAY.
I BELIEVE EVEN THE MDP MAKES

01:22:01.542,01:22:09.485
REFERENCE TO MULTI-FAMILY
VERSUS SINGLE-FAEM AND
SINGLE-FAMILY, I BELIEVE, IS

01:22:09.487,01:22:16.358
THAT NUMBER, BUT MULTI-FAMILY
IS 1.6 OR 1.7, BUT THAT’S JUST
WHAT I RECALL FROM MEMORY AND

01:22:16.360,01:22:20.265
I COULD BE OFF SLIGHTLY ON
THAT NUMBER AS WELL.
I THINK THAT’S ALL MY

01:22:20.267,01:22:22.869
QUESTIONS FOR THE TIME BEING.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR
PRESENTATION TODAY.

01:22:22.871,01:22:27.513
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

01:22:27.515,01:22:31.550
I’LL TRY TO BE BRIEF.
SOME OF MY QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN
ASKED.

01:22:31.552,01:22:35.218
SO COLLECTIVELY, ARE THERE
FIVE OF YOU HERE, HAVE YOU ALL
SPOKEN YET?

01:22:35.220,01:22:41.249
>> NO, THERE’S ONE MORE TO
SPEAK.
>> OKAY.

01:22:41.251,01:22:47.716
SO I GUESS I’M TRYING TO GET
AN UNDERSTANDING FROM YOUR
GROUP AT WHAT POINT HAVE YOU

01:22:47.718,01:22:55.264
BEEN — WHAT WAS YOUR STARTING
POINT IN ENGAGING IN THIS
APPLICATION?

01:22:55.266,01:23:04.345
>> THE ORIGINAL STARTING POINT
WAS THE SOCIETY OF BOWNESS
RESIDENTS, A NUMBER OF YEARS

01:23:04.347,01:23:07.215
AGO.
AT THAT POINT IN TIME, THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION HAD JUST

01:23:07.217,01:23:11.416
BEEN RESURRECTED AND DID NOT
HAVE A PLANNING AND
DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE.

01:23:11.418,01:23:18.664
>> WHEN WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN?
WHEN WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN?
>> 2009.

01:23:18.666,01:23:23.598
>> THIS APPLICATION WAS
SUBMITTED IN DECEMBER OF ’09.
>> RIGHT.

01:23:23.600,01:23:28.339
>> SO THE SOCIETY WOULD HAVE
STARTED WORKING WITH THE FILE
AND THEN IT GOT TURNED OVER TO

01:23:28.341,01:23:36.620
THE ASSOCIATION?
>> IN APRIL 2010, THE SOCIETY
OF BONESS RESIDENTS MERGED

01:23:36.622,01:23:46.228
WITH THE BCA SO THAT CORE
GROUP PLUS MEMBERS OF THE BCA
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION THEN

01:23:46.230,01:23:50.522
FORMED THE PLANNING AND
DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE WHICH
THEN BECAME INVOLVED OVER

01:23:50.524,01:23:56.006
TIME.
>> RIGHT.
SO IN THE BEGINNING, WAS THERE

01:23:56.008,01:24:00.275
– WERE THE TWO GROUPS ON THE
SAME PAGE AS IT RELATED TO
THIS APPLICATION?

01:24:00.277,01:24:09.836
>> YES.
>> WHEN I ASKED FOR THE
APPLICANTS’ CHRONOLOGY OF

01:24:09.838,01:24:17.481
COMMUNITY MEETINGS, LET ME
JUST GO OVER IT WITH YOU, THE
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE, THE

01:24:17.483,01:24:21.612
APPLICATION WAS SUBMITTED IN
DECEMBER OF ’09 AND THEN A
COUPLE MONTHS LATER, THEY HELD

01:24:21.614,01:24:27.225
A PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE, THE
DEVELOPER DID.
DID YOU ATTEND THAT, DID THE

01:24:27.227,01:24:30.730
COMMUNITY ATTEND THAT, DID THE
SOCIETY ATTEND THAT?
>> YES.

01:24:30.732,01:24:35.735
>> AND WHAT WERE YOUR VIEWS AT
THAT TIME?
>> OUR VIEWS WERE VERY CLEARLY

01:24:35.737,01:24:42.800
EXPRESSED WITH REGARDS TO
DISAGREEING WITH THE
AMENDMENTS THAT WOULD BE –

01:24:42.802,01:24:48.448
AMENDMENTS TO THE BYLAW THAT
WOULD BE REQUIRED IN ORDER TO
ALLOW FOR THE DEVELOPMENT.

01:24:48.450,01:24:59.002
THE MAIN, AT THAT POINT IN
TIME, OUR MAIN CONCERN WAS
WITH A COR3 LAND USE

01:24:59.004,01:25:02.771
REDESIGNATION AND THAT WAS
ADDRESSED IN SUBSEQUENT –
>> IT WAS ADDRESS?

01:25:02.773,01:25:09.707
>> YEAH, THE APPLICANTS’
RESPONSE, KATHY CAN CORRECT ME
IF I’M WRONG ON THIS, BUT THE

01:25:09.709,01:25:13.150
APPLICANTS’ RESPONSE AND THE
FILE MANAGER’S RESPONSE WAS TO
TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION

01:25:13.152,01:25:16.313
AND COME UP WITH AN
ALTERNATIVE ROUTE TO
DEVELOPING A COMMERCIAL CORE

01:25:16.315,01:25:22.155
WHICH WOULD –
>> A REMEDY WAS FOUND FOR THAT
PARTICULAR ISSUE OF CONCERN?

01:25:22.157,01:25:30.299
>> UM, IT WASN’T A REMEDY THAT
WE THOUGHT WAS ACCEPTABLE.
>> WERE YOU IN AGREEMENT AT

01:25:30.301,01:25:36.564
ALL WITH THE ISSUE THAT YOU
RAISED IN HOW THEY TRIED TO
WORK TO REMEDY IT, TO YOUR

01:25:36.566,01:25:38.968
SATISFACTION?
>> AGAIN, I’LL LET JOE ADDRESS
THAT.

01:25:38.970,01:25:44.367
>> OKAY.
PLEASE.
RATHER THAN…

01:25:44.369,01:25:51.645
I KNOW, BUT IT’S HARD WHEN
YOU’RE TRYING TO GET TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE — YEAH.

01:25:51.647,01:26:01.291
>> AS MRS. SMITEE HAS JUST
MENTIONED, WE WERE INVITED,
AND THIS IS WHERE MY PERSONAL

01:26:01.293,01:26:10.529
PARTICIPATION CAME INTO PLACE,
WE REALIZED THAT THERE WAS AN
OPEN HOUSE ORGANIZED BY THE

01:26:10.531,01:26:17.105
CITY OF CALGARY.
THIS IS IN NOVEMBER OF 2010.
>> NO, I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE

01:26:17.107,01:26:22.014
PUBLIC HOST THAT WAS HOSTED BY
THE DEVELOPER IN FEBRUARY OF
2010.

01:26:22.016,01:26:25.747
AND YOUR INVOLVEMENT.
>> I WAS NOT PERSONALLY
INVOLVED IN THAT AT THAT TIME.

01:26:25.749,01:26:29.490
>> WAS ANYBODY HERE INVOLVED
IN WORKING WITH THE DEVELOPER
ON THESE MATTERS?

01:26:29.492,01:26:39.769
>> THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN ME.
AT THAT TIME.
PRESIDENT OF THE SOCIETY

01:26:39.771,01:26:42.399
BOWNESS RESIDENTS.
>> OKAY.
SO YOU CAN’T ANSWER THAT

01:26:42.401,01:26:46.534
QUESTION THEN.
SO WHAT WERE THE GROUNDS OF
SOME OF YOUR CONCERNS WHEN YOU

01:26:46.536,01:26:52.002
WORKED WITH THE DEVELOPER AT
THAT INITIAL PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
AND THEN WHAT ENSUED FROM

01:26:52.004,01:26:56.775
FEBRUARY TILL NOVEMBER OF 2010
IN TRYING TO WORK THOSE THINGS
THROUGH?

01:26:56.777,01:27:01.515
IT SEEMS THAT IN APRIL — WAS
IT IN APRIL THAT THE MERGER
TOOK PLACE OF THE TWO

01:27:01.517,01:27:09.287
ORGANIZATIONS?
>> THE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE IS
TO RESPOND TO THE CITY.

01:27:09.289,01:27:13.419
>> TO WHO?
>> TO THE CITY OF CALGARY.
TO THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

01:27:13.421,01:27:24.753
SO THE RESPONSE THAT I AM SURE
MRS. SMITHE ADMITTED TO THE
CITY ADDRESSED THE POINTS AT

01:27:24.755,01:27:34.501
THAT POINT THAT WERE
CONSIDERED A CONCERN AND, AS
SHE SAID, CCOR 3 WAS A CONCERN

01:27:34.503,01:27:37.472
AT THAT TIME.
>> SO ADMINISTRATION HAD A
MEETING WITH YOU ON DECEMBER

01:27:37.474,01:27:41.340
7th AND THEN TWO DAYS LATER,
THE MATTER WENT TO THE
PLANNING COMMISSION?

01:27:41.342,01:27:45.779
>> THAT’S CORRECT.
AND AT THAT TIME –
>> HAD YOU WORKED OUT ANYTHING

01:27:45.781,01:27:53.421
WITH ADMINISTRATION BEFORE IT
WENT TO PLANNING COMMISSION?
>> THE MEETING WAS AROUND THE

01:27:53.423,01:27:59.092
ISSUES OF LAND USE
DESIGNATION.
AT NO POINT IN TIME WAS THE

01:27:59.094,01:28:05.562
ISSUE OF MODIFICATIONS TO THE
ARP MENTIONED OR DISCUSSED.
>> OKAY.

01:28:05.564,01:28:15.566
>> OKAY?
SO, AGAIN, THERE IS A VERY
FRACTURED WAY OR PIECE MEAL

01:28:15.568,01:28:20.672
APPROACH TO PRESENTING ISSUES.
SO THAT THE ISSUE OF
MODIFICATIONS, AMENDMENTS TO

01:28:20.674,01:28:26.442
THE ARP WERE DOWNPLAYED AT THE
OPEN HOUSE, AND THEN THEY WERE
NOT ADDRESSED AT ALL AT THE

01:28:26.444,01:28:33.349
MEETING THAT MYSELF AND
MARALEE MOORE WHO’S HERE TODAY
AS WELL, WE ATTENDED A MEETING

01:28:33.351,01:28:38.685
HERE WITH PLANNING DEPARTMENT
STAFF ONCE.
>> SO WE TABLED THIS MATTER IN

01:28:38.687,01:28:46.201
JANUARY BECAUSE OUR ALDER MEN
WAS UNAVAILABLE AND THEN
ADMINISTRATION WAS TO WORK

01:28:46.203,01:28:51.571
WITH YOU IN FEBRUARY WITH
THESE CONCERNS.
AND THEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

01:28:51.573,01:28:56.914
CHRONOLOGY HERE, HOW WOULD YOU
DESCRIBE THE RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN BROWN AND ASSOCIATES

01:28:56.916,01:29:00.921
AND MALCORE AND THE COMMUNITY
IN TRYING TO RECONCILE AND
DEAL WITH THESE THINGS AND GET

01:29:00.923,01:29:04.588
BACK TO EACH OTHER IN A TIMELY
MATTER –
>> THERE WERE –

01:29:04.590,01:29:08.524
>> — BECAUSE IT’S DIFFICULT
WHEN YOU COME TO COUNSEL AND
THESE THINGS HAVEN’T BEEN

01:29:08.526,01:29:13.292
WORKED OUT.
THEN WE HAVE TO SORT OF BE
PLACED IN THE MIDDLE.

01:29:13.294,01:29:19.635
>> THERE WAS CORRESPONDENCE
WITH THE CITY, AND I
PERSONALLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND

01:29:19.637,01:29:25.241
SOME OF THEM WERE NOT — THEY
COULD NOT BE PROVIDED, THAT
WAS THE FIRST REACTION.

01:29:25.243,01:29:29.110
>> BY THE CITY?
>> BY THE CITY, YES.
>> WHAT QUESTIONS WERE THOSE?

01:29:29.112,01:29:35.821
>> AND THEN PROGRESSIVELY AS
WE APPROACHED THIS PARTICULAR
HEARING, SOME OF THE ELEMENTS

01:29:35.823,01:29:40.796
THAT I HAD ORIGINALLY ASKED
THAT HAD BEEN INDICATED TO ME
THAT THEY WERE NOT — COULD

01:29:40.798,01:29:50.551
NOT BE MADE AVAILABLE, IN
SMALL DOSES, THEY STARTED
BECOMING AVAILABLE.

01:29:50.553,01:30:00.455
I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT KIMBERLY
KING, ONE OF THE PLANNERS,
INVITED ME MOST RECENTLY TO

01:30:00.457,01:30:08.987
ANOTHER MEETING, BUT WE HAVE
VOLUNTEERS, AND, UNFORTUNATELY,
THE TIMING WASN’T POSSIBLE TO

01:30:08.989,01:30:14.234
DO THAT.
SHE OFFERED TO MEET EVEN AFTER
THIS HEARING.

01:30:14.236,01:30:20.031
>> YOU MENTIONED THE LACK OF
REGIONAL PATHWAYS.
HAVE YOU SEEN THE PLANS HERE

01:30:20.033,01:30:27.738
FOR THE CENTRAL PASSIVE
RECREATIONAL REGIONAL RESERVE
AND THE NATURALIZED AREA AND

01:30:27.740,01:30:30.577
THE BEAUFORT MUNICIPAL RESERVE,
HAVE YOU SEEN THAT?
>> YES.

01:30:30.579,01:30:37.445
>> SO THEY DO EXIST.
THERE ARE PLANS FOR THE THINGS
THAT YOU SAID THAT YOU DIDN’T

01:30:37.447,01:30:47.552
THINK WERE THERE.
>> WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, YOUR
WORSHIP, THERE ARE OTHER

01:30:47.554,01:30:54.680
COMMENTS THAT ARE GOING TO BE
MADE IN MARILYN MOORE’S
PRESENTATION THAT INDICATE THE

01:30:54.682,01:30:58.415
SIZE AND THE NATURE OF THE
COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT.
>> OKAY.

01:30:58.417,01:31:04.793
>> IT IS — IT IS NOT
CONDUCIVE TO PATHWAYS, IT’S
NOT A WALKABLE COMMUNITY.

01:31:04.795,01:31:09.998
IT’S A COMMERCIAL COMMUNITY.
>> SO IS THAT THE ISSUE, THEN,
THE COMMERCIAL ASPECT OF THIS?

01:31:10.000,01:31:18.137
>> THIS IS A HIGH
CONCENTRATION OF COMMERCIAL
AREA IN ONE PARTICULAR

01:31:18.139,01:31:26.490
DISTRICT TO THE DETRIMENT OF
OTHER DISTRICTS THAT WILL HAVE
NOUN SO HOW DO YOU INTEGRATE A

01:31:26.492,01:31:35.498
WHOLE COMMUNITY — NON— WHEN
THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY OF
HAVING LOCAL COMMERCE IN OTHER

01:31:35.500,01:31:42.974
AREAS AND COMMERCE IS
CONCENTRATED HIGHLY IN ONE?
AND THEN THE ARP IS AMENDED TO

01:31:42.976,01:31:48.177
ENTRENCH IN THE ARP THE FACT
THAT ALL COMMERCE WILL BE JUST
IN HERE?

01:31:48.179,01:31:53.284
AND ALL THE OTHER AREAS WILL
HAVE NONE.
SO THAT’S OUR CONCERN.

01:31:53.286,01:31:58.201
>> OKAY.
ARE THERE ANYTHING — IS THERE
ANYTHING ABOUT THE PLAN THAT

01:31:58.203,01:32:04.377
YOU LIKE?
>> THE FACT THAT THIS IS GOING
TO BE DEVELOPED.

01:32:04.379,01:32:10.219
THE FACT THAT WE HAVE ALREADY
SEEN WHAT THE LANDS ARE
PROPOSING THAT IS FAR BETTER

01:32:10.221,01:32:17.595
IN TERMS OF HAVING LINEAR
GREEN SPACES, HAVING MIXED
COMMERCE AND RESIDENTIAL.

01:32:17.597,01:32:23.740
IT’S A MORE LIVABLE, WALKABLE
WHOLE COMMUNITY.
AND I ASK MYSELF, IF ANOTHER

01:32:23.742,01:32:30.139
DEVELOPMENT NEXT DOOR THAT HAS
BEEN PUT ON HOLD RIGHT NOW
PROPOSES SOMETHING THAT IS

01:32:30.141,01:32:35.414
BETTER THAN THIS, I’M SAYING
THIS AREA COULD BE BETTER,
TOO.

01:32:35.416,01:32:39.153
THAT’S MY POINT.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> THANK YOU.

01:32:39.155,01:32:45.259
JUST THAT VERY LAST THING YOU
SAID, I KNOW THIS IS A BIT
UNTOWARD, BUT I MIGHT ASK,

01:32:45.261,01:32:49.431
MR. WATSON, HAS THE OTHER
DEVELOPMENT BEEN PUT ON HOLD
HERE?

01:32:49.433,01:32:52.432
>> THAT’S NOT MY
UNDERSTANDING.
I MEAN, THE OTHER APPLICATION

01:32:52.434,01:32:58.632
IS IN AND IS BEING PROCESSED.
IT’S NOT — I EXPECT THERE’S
COMMENTS WE’RE EXPECTING BACK

01:32:58.634,01:33:03.537
OR SOME NEGOTIATIONS GOING ON,
BUT IT’S CERTAINLY NOT BEEN
PUT ON HOLD BY THE

01:33:03.539,01:33:06.610
ADMINISTRATION.
IT WILL BE COMING HERE IN DUE
COURSE TO THE PLANNING

01:33:06.612,01:33:09.351
COMMISSION, THOUGH.
>> THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU, MR. WATSON.

01:33:09.353,01:33:13.214
I WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT
BEFORE WE LOST THE THREAD OF
DEBATE TODAY.

01:33:13.216,01:33:19.554
ALDERMAN DEMONG?
>> JOE, NIKKI, I APPRECIATE
BEING VOLUNTEERS AND THIS

01:33:19.556,01:33:24.290
TAKES AN AWFUL LOT, I DON’T
KNOW IF I WOULD HAVE HAD THE
COURAGE A FEW YEARS BACK TO DO

01:33:24.292,01:33:27.954
WHAT YOU’RE DOING HERE AND I
APPRECIATE IT.
YOU REALLY CAUGHT MY ATTENTION

01:33:27.956,01:33:33.930
WHEN YOU WERE COMMENTING THAT
50% INCREASE IN THE POPULATION
OF BONE HE IS.

01:33:33.932,01:33:36.660
THAT’S A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT
THAT ANY COMMUNITY CAN TAKE
IN.

01:33:36.662,01:33:39.659
I’M A LITTLE CONFUSED ABOUT
THE NUMBERS.
IF YOU COULD CLARIFY FOR ME.

01:33:39.661,01:33:48.594
THE ORIGINAL ARP ALLOWS FOR
THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE 30-ODD
UNITS PER HECTARE, CORRECT?

01:33:48.596,01:33:55.405
AND YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT A –
THE NEW ARP YOU’RE CONCERNED
WITH IS ALLOWING A 6.7%

01:33:55.407,01:34:01.640
INCREASE TO THAT ARP.
SO I JUST DID SOME QUICK
NUMBERS, AND WHAT THE CONCERN

01:34:01.642,01:34:10.113
THERE, IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN, IS
YOU’RE OKAY WITH 6,000 NEW
RESIDENTS COMING IN BUT 6320

01:34:10.115,01:34:13.755
IS TOO MUCH.
I’M JUST TRYING TO UNDERSTAND
IF THAT’S REALLY WHAT WE’RE

01:34:13.757,01:34:16.129
GETTING AT.
>> THAT’S PARTLY WHAT WE’RE
GETTING AT.

01:34:16.131,01:34:20.365
I THINK THE OTHER PART THAT
WE’RE GETTING AT, IF WE’RE
GOING TO TALK ABOUT AMENDED

01:34:20.367,01:34:25.172
THAT ARP, WE SHOULD LOOK AT
DECREASING, NOT INCREASING THE
RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT BECAUSE

01:34:25.174,01:34:28.674
THERE ISN’T AN INFRASTRUCTURE
TO SUPPORT.
THERE’S ONE ENTRANCE IN AND

01:34:28.676,01:34:37.905
OUT OF THAT COMMUNITY.
THERE’S NO APPROPRIATE ACCESS
THROUGH POTENTIALLY WHAT’S

01:34:37.907,01:34:43.518
CALLED CELL ONE, GREENWOOD
VILLAGE MOBILE HOME TRAILER
PARK IS COMPLETELY FENCED.

01:34:43.520,01:34:48.315
SO WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING AT THIS
DEVELOPMENT, YOU HAVE TO SEE
IT AS ISOLATED FROM, THERE’S

01:34:48.317,01:34:54.895
NO ACCESS THROUGH THERE.
SO IF WE’RE GOING TO BE
AMENDING IT, LET’S AMEND IT

01:34:54.897,01:34:58.905
DOWN, NOT UP.
>> BUT YOU HAVE UNDERSTAND
THAT’S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

01:34:58.907,01:35:02.107
CELL AND WHEN THAT CELL COMES
FOR DEVELOPMENT, WHICH I
ASSUME IT WILL AT SOME POINT

01:35:02.109,01:35:05.842
OF TIME, THE FENCE WOULD COME
DOWN AND THAT WOULD BE A
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AREA.

01:35:05.844,01:35:09.845
>> NOT NECESSARILY.
THERE ARE RESTRICTIONS.
AT THIS POINT IN TIME ON WHAT

01:35:09.847,01:35:15.523
CAN BE BUILT IN A GREENWOOD
VILLAGE.
MARILYN WILL BE BRINGING THIS

01:35:15.525,01:35:21.939
POINT UP IN HER DISCUSSION,
BUT THERE IS EVIDENCE, BOTH
PHYSICAL EVIDENCE AND

01:35:21.941,01:35:25.176
ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE THAT THAT
ENTIRE SITE WAS A NUISANCE
GROUND.

01:35:25.178,01:35:29.078
>> WAS A?
>> A NUISANCE GROUND, A
DUMPING GROUND.

01:35:29.080,01:35:34.683
SO THERE’S QUESTIONS ABOUT
ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTS THAT
NEED TO BE DONE, ALL THE REST

01:35:34.685,01:35:41.754
OF IT, AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS
THAT SOIL STABILITY ISSUES ON
THE GREENWOOD VILLAGE MOBILE

01:35:41.756,01:35:47.522
HOME AREA MEAN THAT THAT’S
BASICALLY THE ONLY KIND OF
STRUCTURE THAT CAN GO IN THAT

01:35:47.524,01:35:51.398
AREA.
>> I APOLOGIZE, I REALLY
DIDN’T WANT TO DIGRESS AND

01:35:51.400,01:35:55.336
TALK ABOUT GREENWOOD VILLAGE.
WITH REGARDS TO JOE, YOUR
CONCERNS ABOUT THE COMMERCIAL

01:35:55.338,01:36:01.308
ACTIVITY ALL BEING CENTRED IN
ONE AREA AS OPPOSED TO BEING
DISTRIBUTED ALL AROUND, YOU’RE

01:36:01.310,01:36:09.821
SAYING THAT YOU WOULD RATHER
HAVE ONE RETAIL OUTLET IN ONE
CORNER AND THEN HAVE TO HAVE

01:36:09.823,01:36:14.219
PEOPLE DRIVE TO ANOTHER AREA
OF THE CELL TO GO TO THE
DRUGSTORE OR TO THE

01:36:14.221,01:36:19.121
CONVENIENCE STORE OR SOMETHING
ALONG THOSE LINES WOULD BE A
MORE VIABLE OPTION?

01:36:19.123,01:36:27.193
>> WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT IN
THE DESIGN THAT WE’VE SEEN
ANYWAY IS TWO 5,000 SQUARE

01:36:27.195,01:36:31.966
METRES.
>> M’HM.
>> OF RETAIL SPACE ON THE

01:36:31.968,01:36:39.001
GROUND LEVEL AND — HOW MUCH
OF THAT IS STAND-ALONE
BUILDING?

01:36:39.003,01:36:45.232
THERE’S A STATISTIC IN –
>> 5,000 INSIDE “A”, 5,000 IN
SIDE “B”.

01:36:45.234,01:36:50.426
>> NO, I’M FULLY AWARE OF THE
AREA, WHAT I’M TRYING TO GET
AT, YOU WOULD RATHER HAVE SOME

01:36:50.428,01:36:55.071
OF THESE SPLIT UP ALL OVER THE
AREA SO THAT YOU WOULD HAVE
PEOPLE DRIVING TO ALL AREAS OF

01:36:55.073,01:37:00.111
THE –
>> NO, WE WANT THEM TO WALK.
>> OKAY.

01:37:00.113,01:37:09.188
I MEAN, THAT WOULD BE GREAT,
BUT WOULDN’T — I GUESS WHAT I
WANT TO SUGGEST IS IF YOU HAVE

01:37:09.190,01:37:16.259
ONE TYPE OF RETAIL IN CELL 4
AND TWO OTHER TYPES OF RETAIL
IN CELL 1 AND 3, YOU’RE GOING

01:37:16.261,01:37:20.966
TO HAVE TO HAVE PEOPLE GOING
FROM ONE SECTION TO THE NEXT
SECTION TO THE NEXT SECTION

01:37:20.968,01:37:25.858
ALL IN ONE SO-CALLED SHOPPING
DAY.
>> I THINK THAT THE VISION

01:37:25.860,01:37:37.621
THAT WAS INCORPORATED IN THE
EXISTING ARP WAS MORE ALONG
THE LINES OF RETAIL OUTLETS

01:37:37.623,01:37:43.590
THAT — RETAIL OUTLETS WITH
RESIDENTIAL UNITS ON TOP AND
THEN A MIX OF SINGLE-FAMILY

01:37:43.592,01:37:49.526
AND MOBILE HOMES AND WHATEVER
YOU WANT ALL AROUND IN THE
AREA.

01:37:49.528,01:37:55.926
IT WASN’T INTENDED TO BE A
SHOPPING AREA.
A SMALL GROCERY STORE WAS

01:37:55.928,01:38:04.011
ENVISIONED, BUT WHAT WE’RE
TALKING — ONE OF THE
DISCRETIONARY USES IN — EVEN

01:38:04.013,01:38:09.456
THOUGH IT’S IN THE DIRECT
CONTROL AREA, ONE OF THE
DISCRETIONARY USES OF CCOR 2

01:38:09.458,01:38:14.228
IS A HOTEL.
SO ARE WE GOING TO BE BACK AT
A TABLE DISCUSSING THAT AT

01:38:14.230,01:38:21.836
SOME POINT DOWN THE ROAD?
I MEAN, IT’S — OUR CONTENTION
IS THAT THE — WHAT IS BEING

01:38:21.838,01:38:29.350
PROPOSED HAS TWO — TOO WIDE
AN ENVELOPE.
ONCE THAT LAND USE DESIGNATION,

01:38:29.352,01:38:33.817
ONCE THE AMENDMENTS HAPPEN AND
THE LAND USE REDESIGNATIONS
HAPPEN, YOU THEN HAVE

01:38:33.819,01:38:40.017
PERMITTED, INDEPENDENT OF WHO
THE CURRENT DEVELOPER IS, IN
PERPETUITY, YOU’VE COMMITTED A

01:38:40.019,01:38:44.689
COMMERCIAL CORE IN ONE AREA TO
THE EXCLUSION OF COMMERCIAL
ACTIVITIES IN THE REMAINDER OF

01:38:44.691,01:38:48.425
THE AREA, YOU KNOW, IN THE
WHOLE –
>> BUT AGAIN, THAT’S REALLY

01:38:48.427,01:38:54.128
THE POINT I’M TRYING TO MAKE.
YOU WOULD RATHER HAVE THE
COMMERCIAL OPTION IN

01:38:54.130,01:38:58.761
PERPETUITY ALL THROUGH THE
ENTIRE AREA AS OPPOSED TO
BEING LOCATED IN ONE CENTRAL

01:38:58.763,01:39:02.971
AREA SO YOU HAVE THE
OPPORTUNITY OF HAVING THE
HOTEL OVER HERE OR SOMETHING

01:39:02.973,01:39:08.211
ELSE IN THE ENTIRE AREA AS
OPPOSED TO SAYING AT LEAST
IT’S GOING TO BE CENTRALIZED

01:39:08.213,01:39:16.655
IN THIS LOCATION?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, JUST TO
EXACERBATE THIS, SITE “C” HAS

01:39:16.657,01:39:23.090
AN ADDITIONAL 37.000 SQUARE
FEET OF OFFICE SPACE.
SO THERE IS RETAIL –

01:39:23.092,01:39:29.861
>> SQUARE METRES.
>> SQUA METRES, MY APOLOGIES.
– SQUARE.

01:39:29.863,01:39:39.983
YOU DO NOT HAVE RESIDENTS IN
THAT AREA.
WHEREAS LOOKING AT WHAT IS

01:39:39.985,01:39:44.618
BEING PROPOSED FOR THE RATSKEY
LANDS –
>> I’M SORRY, I HAVE NOT BEEN

01:39:44.620,01:39:48.554
PRIVY TO WHAT THE RATSKEY
LANDS ARE GOING TO BE LOOKING
AT.

01:39:48.556,01:39:55.751
>> I AM JUST MAKING MENTALLY
THE COMPARISON BECAUSE IN THAT
AREA, FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN,

01:39:55.753,01:40:03.225
THERE IS A COMBINATION OF
RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL SO
ON THE BOTTOM FLOOR, THERE IS

01:40:03.227,01:40:10.440
RETAIL SPACE.
ABOVE, THERE IS RESIDENTIAL.
OVER HERE, WE HAVE RETAIL

01:40:10.442,01:40:19.240
SPACE AND THEN WE HAVE OFFICE
SPACE ON TOP.
AND WE ARE TALKING, I’M

01:40:19.242,01:40:22.579
STEALING THUNDER FROM
PRESENTATIONS COMING HERE,
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT 5,000

01:40:22.581,01:40:28.994
SQUARE METRES IS HALF OF
MARKET MALL — THE BAY AND
MARKET MALL, SO IF WE ADD

01:40:28.996,01:40:33.430
15.000 SQUARE METRES, WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT A BAY-AND-A-HALF
IN THAT AREA.

01:40:33.432,01:40:43.082
SO THIS IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT.
SO THIS IS NOT A LIVING
COMMUNITY, THIS IS NOT A

01:40:43.084,01:40:46.844
COMMUNITY THAT IS WHOLE.
>> AND YOU DON’T SUSPECT THAT
ANYBODY FROM THE COMMUNITY IS

01:40:46.846,01:40:50.745
GOING TO BE USING THAT OFFICE
SPACE OR THOSE RETAIL?
I MEAN, THAT WAS THE WHOLE

01:40:50.747,01:40:56.120
IDEA OF THE WHOLE COMMUNITY,
IS THAT YOU HAVE AREAS WITHIN
THAT ARE USING THAT.

01:40:56.122,01:41:05.631
>> WELL, AS NICKI SMITHER HERE
MENTIONED EARLIER, WHAT IS THE
PROBABILITY OF THOSE EMPLOYED

01:41:05.633,01:41:08.599
IN THOSE OFFICES LIVING IN THE
AREA?
PROBABILITY IS NOT VERY HIGH.

01:41:08.601,01:41:13.594
>> THAT’S THE CONCEPT, WE TRY
TO CREATE OFFICE SPACE SO THE
OFFICES THAT WILL JOIN THERE

01:41:13.596,01:41:17.460
ARE THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE –
WELL, I’M SORRY, I’M NOT GOING
TO GO INTO THAT.

01:41:17.462,01:41:21.132
I REALLY DO APPRECIATE YOU
COMING OUT TODAY.
I LOOK FORWARD TO THE OTHER

01:41:21.134,01:41:22.405
PRESENTATIONS.
THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU.

01:41:22.407,01:41:29.955
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN DEMONG.
ALDERMAN FARRELL.
>> THANK YOU.

01:41:29.957,01:41:35.347
I’M SORRY ALDERMAN CARRA AND I
HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING DURING
YOUR PRESENTATION A LITTLE BIT

01:41:35.349,01:41:42.565
OF HOW WE EXPECT COMMUNITIES
TO KNOW MORE ABOUT URBAN
PLANNING IN SOME CASES THAN WE

01:41:42.567,01:41:47.436
DO.
BUT I’M TRYING TO DRILL DOWN
TO THE ESSENCE OF WHAT YOU’RE

01:41:47.438,01:41:53.643
LOOKING FOR, AND I THINK,
PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG,
BUT I FEEL LIKE I’M HEARING

01:41:53.645,01:42:00.410
MIXED MESSAGES.
SO I’M HEARING TO GO BACK TO
THE OLD ARP WHICH IS PRIMARILY

01:42:00.412,01:42:09.389
RESIDENTIAL AND QUITE LOW
DENSITY AND THEN I’M HEARING
ABOUT THIS RICH MIX OF

01:42:09.391,01:42:16.550
RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL,
RETAIL OFFICE WALKABLE AND I
DON’T SEE THOSE TWO AS FITTING

01:42:16.552,01:42:26.799
TOGETHER.
>> THE CURRENT ARP WAS
SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED BETWEEN

01:42:26.801,01:42:33.071
THE COMMUNITY AND THE PLANNING
DEPARTMENT IN ORDER TO
ACCOMMODATE HIGHER DENSITY,

01:42:33.073,01:42:39.476
NOT LOW DENSITY.
IT WAS TO INCREASE DENSITY IN
A DEVELOPABLE AREA OF BOWNESS

01:42:39.478,01:42:43.211
AND THAT WAS TO ALSO INCLUDE

>> DID IT INCLUDE THIS AREA?

01:42:43.213,01:42:51.106
>> YES.
THE WHOLE GREENBRIAR SPECIAL
STUDY AREA IS A SPECIFIC

01:42:51.108,01:42:59.163
SEGMENT OF OUR ARP DEVELOPED
IN 2008, SO IT’S EVENT, TO
ACCOMMODATE A VISION OF HOW DO

01:42:59.165,01:43:05.022
WE DO HIGHER DENSITY.
HOW DO WE DO LIVE UP, WORK
DOWN?

01:43:05.024,01:43:11.700
HOW DO WE HAVE WALKABLE
COMMUNITY, HOW DO WE HAVE
WHOLE COMMUNITY?

01:43:11.702,01:43:14.567
THERE’S COMMERCIAL IN THERE,
TOO.
>> I’M NOT SURE — I REMEMBER

01:43:14.569,01:43:20.606
THE BOWNESS ARP VAGUELY, BUT I
DO REMEMBER IT, AND I REMEMBER
BEING VERY CONCERNED ABOUT

01:43:20.608,01:43:27.045
WHETHER OR NOT IT’S ABLE TO
SUSTAIN RETAIL.
BECAUSE THE DENSITY, ALTHOUGH

01:43:27.047,01:43:32.148
AN INCREASE FROM WHAT YOU SEE
IN THE AREA TODAYR ACTUALLY
QUITE LOW, AND I DON’T THINK

01:43:32.150,01:43:37.185
WE HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING
AT THE CITY OF G.I. WHAT
NEIGHBOURHOOD RETAIL REALLY

01:43:37.187,01:43:44.862
NEEDS — CALGARY WHAT THE
NEIGHBOURHOOD RETAIL REALLY
NEEDS IN TERMS OF CATCHMENT

01:43:44.864,01:43:53.109
AREA, SO I’M HEARING, AND I’M
SORRY, SIR, I’VE FORGOTTEN
YOUR NAME, BUT I’M HEARING YOU

01:43:53.111,01:44:01.244
MENTION THAT THE INITIAL
APPLICATION OR INITIAL CONCEPT
INCLUDED MOSTLY SINGLE FAMILY,

01:44:01.246,01:44:08.114
AND THEN I’M HEARING THE
RESIDENTIAL ABOVE THE SHOPS.
I’M REALLY STRUGGLING TO KNOW

01:44:08.116,01:44:12.852
EXACTLY WHAT YOU’RE WANTING
WITH THIS, ALTHOUGH I
CERTAINLY AM VERY CLEAR THAT

01:44:12.854,01:44:29.173
YOU DON’T WANT THIS.
>> YOU CAN SEE THIS IS THE
CURRENT ARP.

01:44:29.175,01:44:34.913
THE PRIME OBJECTIVE IS TO
CREATE A COMPLETE COMMUNITY.
THE SECONDARY OBJECTIVE THAT

01:44:34.915,01:44:41.925
YOU HAVE YOUR FINGER RIGHT ON,
A DIVERSE POPULATION MIXED
THROUGH A VARIETY OF HOUSING

01:44:41.927,01:44:45.394
FORMS.
>> SO A COMPLETE COMMUNITY
WOULD CERTAINLY INCLUDE OFFICE

01:44:45.396,01:44:52.449
BUT IT’S OFTEN HOW IT’S
DISTRIBUTED.
>> THE ARP AS IT EXISTS NOW

01:44:52.451,01:44:58.488
SPECIFICALLY DID NOT INCLUDE
OFFICE SPACE BECAUSE WE’RE
DEALING WITH AN ISOLATED

01:44:58.490,01:45:04.384
GEOGRAPHIC COMMUNITY, JUST
INDEPENDENT OF WHETHER THE
INTERCHANGE GOES IN OR NOT.

01:45:04.386,01:45:11.129
ONE ENTRANCE, ONE EXIT.
AND THAT WAS DISCUSSED AND IT
WAS PART OF THE CONSIDERATION

01:45:11.131,01:45:16.797
AT THE TIME BUT THE OFFICE
SPACE WAS EXCLUDED BECAUSE IT
IS TRADITIONALLY OFFICE SPACE

01:45:16.799,01:45:21.970
IS A REGIONAL USE.
>> NOT NECESSARILY.
AND I THINK THAT’S — I

01:45:21.972,01:45:26.404
BELIEVE THAT WE’VE PROGRESSED,
WHEREAS A COMPLETE COMMUNITY
WOULD INCLUDE ALL THESE THINGS

01:45:26.406,01:45:32.070
AND OFFICE SPACE GENERALLY HAS
A LOWER TRAFFIC GENERATION
THAN HOUSING.

01:45:32.072,01:45:38.494
AND CERTAINLY IF YOU HAVE
SOLELY HOUSING WITH NO MIX OF
USES, THEN YOUR TRAFFIC

01:45:38.496,01:45:43.535
GENERATION WOULD BE HIGHER.
>> I’M SORRY –
>> SO WHEN I’M –

01:45:43.537,01:45:47.536
>> MAY I JUMP IN HERE?
LET’S REMEMBER, THIS IS THE
TIME TO ASK THE FOLKS

01:45:47.538,01:45:51.740
QUESTIONS, DEBATE COMES LATER.
AND I HEAR YOU, BUT THERE’S NO
QUESTION MARK AT THE END OF

01:45:51.742,01:45:55.604
WHAT YOU’RE SAYING, AND WE
SHOULDN’T BE HARASSING THESE
PEOPLE WHO HAVE GIVEN UP THE

01:45:55.606,01:45:59.444
TIME OF DAY TO BE HERE.
>> I’M SORRY IF IT APPEARS
THAT I’M HARASSING YOU.

01:45:59.446,01:46:05.882
I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND
WHERE WE GO FROM HERE.
BECAUSE IF WE’RE — THOSE ARE

01:46:05.884,01:46:14.859
VERY IMPORTANT GOALS.
THEY’RE GOALS THAT HAVE BEEN
DESCRIBED IN PLAN IT AND YET I

01:46:14.861,01:46:23.320
AGREE THAT SOME OF THE PLANS
THAT WE SEE DON’T FIT WITH MY
INTERPRETATION OF PLAN IT BUT

01:46:23.322,01:46:31.366
WHAT WORRIES ME, AND SO I
GUESS MY QUESTION IS WHERE DO
WE GO FROM HERE?

01:46:31.368,01:46:37.709
IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THOSE
GOALS, WHICH MAY BE MORE
INTENSE THAN WHAT YOU

01:46:37.711,01:46:45.916
ENVISIONED IN THE BOWNESS ARP?
>> I THINK WHAT WE’RE TRULY
ASKING IS THAT THE CURRENT ARP

01:46:45.918,01:46:49.051
BE HONOURED.
WE’RE NOT OPPOSED TO
DEVELOPMENT ON THAT SITE.

01:46:49.053,01:46:58.279
AND, IN FACT, OUR CURRENT ARP,
WHICH IS RECENT, 2008,
EMBRACES THE CONCEPT OF HIGHER

01:46:58.281,01:47:04.496
DENSITY BECAUSE IT IS A
QUESTION THAT ALL THE
COMMUNITIES, ESTABLISHED

01:47:04.498,01:47:09.402
COMMUNITIESR FACING, HOW DO
YOU ACHIEVE HIGHER DENSITY?
AS A GREENY, IT’S NOT MY

01:47:09.404,01:47:13.941
FAVOURITE IDEA WHAT MIGHT
HAPPEN UP THERE, BUT IT’S WHAT
THE COMMUNITY GENERALLY

01:47:13.943,01:47:26.425
SUPPORTED.
AND — BUT WE’RE STRUGGLING
WITH WHY A DEVELOPER CAN’T

01:47:26.427,01:47:33.564
COME IN AND HONOUR — WHY WE
HAVE TO CONTINUALLY KEEP
AMENDING DOCUMENTS DEVELOPED

01:47:33.566,01:47:40.776
BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE
COMMUNITIES THAT DO LOOK
FORWARD, THAT ARE EMBRACING

01:47:40.778,01:47:45.677
NEW POLICIES AND NEW CONCEPTS
FOR THE CITY.
THERE ARE SPECIFIC AMENDMENTS

01:47:45.679,01:47:51.584
THAT ARE ACTUALLY QUITE GOOD,
IN THE DISCUSSIONS THAT
HAPPENED BETWEEN JOE AND THE

01:47:51.586,01:47:55.327
FILE MANAGER, THERE WERE
SEVERAL AMENDMENTS THAT WE
THOUGHT WERE ACTUALLY

01:47:55.329,01:48:00.661
CLARIFYING, BUT THERE ARE
SPECIFIC AMENDMENTS THAT
REALLY ARE IN CONTRADICTION TO

01:48:00.663,01:48:07.963
THE INTENT OF THE CURRENT ARP
AND CONTRADICT EVEN THE
OVERALL INTENT OF THE PROPOSED

01:48:07.965,01:48:15.741
AMENDMENTS.
>> SO THEN I’LL ASK ONE FINAL
QUESTION THEN, IF WE WERE TO

01:48:15.743,01:48:23.414
FOLLOW THE INTENT OF THE ARP
AS FAR AS THOSE OVERARCHING
GOALS, KMIKSED COMMUNITY, –

01:48:23.416,01:48:27.856
MIXED COMMUNITY, WALKABLE,
THOSE THINGS, BUT IT INCLUDED
MORE INTENSITY THAN WHAT’S

01:48:27.858,01:48:32.129
OUTLINED IN THE ARP, WOULD YOU
BE WILLING TO EXPLORE THAT?
OR WOULD YOU BE OPPOSED TO

01:48:32.131,01:48:36.954
THAT SIMPLY BECAUSE IT DOESN’T
FOLLOW THE DENSITIES WITHIN
THE ARP?

01:48:36.956,01:48:41.491
>> YOU’RE ASKING IF WE WOULD
SUPPORT DENSITY HIGHER THAN
THE CURRENT ARP?

01:48:41.493,01:48:47.087
>> YES, LOOKING AT THOSE
PRINCIPLES THAT ARE OUTLINED
IN THE ARP WHICH ARE VERY MUCH

01:48:47.089,01:48:53.860
LIKE WHAT’S IN OUR PLAN IT
DOCUMENT, BUT THOSE PRINCIPLES
INCLUDED ADDITIONAL DENSITIES

01:48:53.862,01:49:01.734
NOT IN YOUR ARP, WOULD YOU BE
WILLING TO EXPLORE THEM?
>> PROVIDED — IF I MAY

01:49:01.736,01:49:06.105
INTERJECT.
PROVIDED THERE IS AN OVERALL
ANALYSIS OF TRAFFIC.

01:49:06.107,01:49:13.277
LET ME SHARE WITH YOU WHAT WAS
REVEALED TO US IN A
PRESENTATION FROM A CITY

01:49:13.279,01:49:29.633
ENGINEER, TRAFFIC ENGINEER.
THE AREA DOES NOT — AND THE
MODIFICATIONS TO THE BEAUFORT

01:49:29.635,01:49:34.009
INTERCHANGE WILL NOT SUPPORT
THE TRAFFIC OF ALL THE
DEVELOPMENT PROPOSED FOR THIS

01:49:34.011,01:49:38.045
AREA.
IF THE ANALYSIS WAS DONE
PROPERLY, AMONGST OTHER THINGS

01:49:38.047,01:49:43.982
THAT WERE REVEALED, IS THE
FACT THAT IN THE TRAFFIC
STUDIES, THEY HAVE TO

01:49:43.984,01:49:52.651
IMPLEMENT SIMULATIONS,
SIMULATIONS LOOK AT 83rd
STREET AS AN OPEN-ENDED

01:49:52.653,01:49:58.656
STREET.
I ASK THE QUESTION AT THE TIME,
WHAT HAPPENS WITH BOWNESS ROAD

01:49:58.658,01:50:04.634
WHERE 83rd STREET ENDS?
WELL, THE MODEL WAS GETTING
TOO COMPLICATED AND IT COULD

01:50:04.636,01:50:11.377
NOT INCORPORATE THAT.
THERE IS A LIMIT TO THE
COMPLEXITY OF A MODEL.

01:50:11.379,01:50:16.713
SO THE ANALYSIS THAT HAS BEEN
DONE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE
IMPACT THAT HIGHER DENSITY IS

01:50:16.715,01:50:24.492
GOING TO HAVE IN BOWNESS.
THE TRAFFIC CREATED THROUGH
MONTGOMERY COMING OFF 16th,

01:50:24.494,01:50:28.466
THE TRAFFIC CREATED THROUGH 16
INTO HOME ROAD, NONE OF THAT
HAS BEEN CONSIDERED.

01:50:28.468,01:50:34.402
>> OKAY.
BUT MY QUESTION WAS A FAIRLY
SIMPLE ONE, ALTHOUGH THE WORK

01:50:34.404,01:50:39.271
WOULDN’T NECESSARILY BE SIMPLE,
BUT THE QUESTION WAS WOULD YOU
BE WILLING TO EXPLORE THAT?

01:50:39.273,01:50:42.876
>> CERTAINLY IF IT’S
CONSIDERED –
>> IF THE TRAFFIC IMPACTS ARE

01:50:42.878,01:50:48.431
CONSIDERED.
>> IN A WHOLESOME WAY WITH ALL
ASPECTS THAT ARE REQUIRED SO

01:50:48.433,01:50:53.969
THAT THIS IS A WHOLE COMMUNITY,
SURE.
>> THANK YOU.

01:50:53.971,01:51:00.470
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN FARRELL.
ALDERMAN CHABOT, YOU’VE
ALREADY ASKED A QUESTION OF

01:51:00.472,01:51:03.132
MS. SMITHE.
DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER?
>> NO, ACTUALLY, YOUR WORSHIP,

01:51:03.134,01:51:07.839
IF I COULD, I’D LIKE TO
INTRODUCE CITY HALL SCHOOL
CLASS.

01:51:07.841,01:51:12.278
I’M VERY PLEASED TO INTRODUCE
CITY HALL SCHOOL CLASS FOR
THIS WEEK.

01:51:12.280,01:51:18.747
ALTHOUGH MY DOCUMENT SAYS
THERE’S 23 GRADE 6 STUDENTS
FROM ERIN WOOD SCHOOL, I ONLY

01:51:18.749,01:51:24.449
COUNT 21, BUT HAVING SAID THAT,
THEY ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THEIR
TEACHER BRENT BANKNOCK AND THE

01:51:24.451,01:51:28.495
FOCUS FOR THIS WEEK WILL BE
WHAT MAKES A CITY.
IF I COULD ASK YOU ALL TO

01:51:28.497,01:51:32.393
PLEASE RISE, AND YOU WILL BE
TEMPORARILY ON TELEVISION AND
COUNCIL WILL RECOGNIZE YOU.

01:51:32.395,01:51:41.996
(Applause)
>> AND YOU’RE A HUNDRED
PERCENT SURE IT WASN’T 2.1,

01:51:41.998,01:51:45.304
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
THANK YOU, HAVE YOUR SEATS,
AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SPENDING

01:51:45.306,01:51:48.270
SOME TIME WITH YOU LATER THIS
WEEK.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK AT CITY

01:51:48.272,01:51:56.213
HALL SCHOOL.
I DON’T SEE ANY FURTHER
QUESTIONS FOR THESE FOLKS, SO

01:51:56.215,01:52:06.974
– DO WE HAVE ANYONE ELSE WHO
WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION TO THIS PROPOSAL?

01:52:09.743,01:52:16.323
>> YOUR WORSHIP, MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL, MY NAME IS MARILYN
MORA, AND I SPEAK ON BEHALF OF

01:52:16.325,01:52:20.292
THE BOWNESS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION, OF WHICH I AM A
DIRECTOR.

01:52:20.294,01:52:27.036
THE BOWNESS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION OBJECTS TO THE
PROPOSED BYLAW 12 P-2011 AS

01:52:27.038,01:52:33.664
THE COMBINED EFFECT OF
INCREASED DENSITY AND THE
INTRODUCTION OF UP TO 19.500

01:52:33.666,01:52:40.775
SQUARE METRES OF RETAIL SPACE
AND UP TO 38.850 SQUARE METRES
OF OFFICE USE WILL INCREASE

01:52:40.777,01:52:45.813
TRAFFIC ON 83rd STREET
NORTHWEST FOR THE FOLLOWING
REASONS.

01:52:45.815,01:52:50.686
GREENBRIAR RESIDENTS WOULD
SEEK ACCESS TO AMENITIES SUCH
AS SCHOOLS, AREA COMMUNITY

01:52:50.688,01:52:58.361
ASSOCIATIONS FACILITIES,
WITHIN THE CORE OF BOWNESS AS
NO SUCH AMENITIES HAVE BEEN

01:52:58.363,01:53:05.633
PLANNED FOR GREENBRIAR.
MEMBERS WOULD SEEK OFFICE
SPACE SERVICES IN GREENBRIAR.

01:53:05.635,01:53:10.832
COMMUNITIES IN THE NORTHWEST
BEYOND 85th STREET BRIDGE
WOULD SEEK ACCESS TO RETAIL,

01:53:10.834,01:53:14.672
COMMERCE, SERVICES IN
GREENBRIAR ADDING TO THE
TRAFFIC THAT ALREADY EXISTS.

01:53:14.674,01:53:20.591
THE PROPOSED BEAUFORT ROAD
TRANSCANADA INTERCHANGE WILL
NOT ALTER THE RESTRICTIONS

01:53:20.593,01:53:23.896
IMPOSED BY THE TRAFFIC
CAPACITY OF 83rd STREET
NORTHWEST.

01:53:23.898,01:53:30.834
ALREADY STRAINED AT PRESENT,
WITH THE CURRENT LEVELS OF
TRAFFIC MEASURED IN THE 2010

01:53:30.836,01:53:40.108
AT 10.400 VEHICLES PER DAY AND
PROJECTED TO INCREASE BY MORE
THAN 30% TO 13.800 VEHICLES

01:53:40.110,01:53:45.508
PER DAY AS A RESULT OF THE
PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.
THE TRAFFIC PROBLEMS ON 83rd

01:53:45.510,01:53:49.675
STREET NORTHWEST ARE
EXACERBATED BY THE FACT THAT
MOST OF IT’S NORTHBOUND

01:53:49.677,01:53:54.613
TRAFFIC FLOWING INTO ONE LANE
ON BOWNESS ROAD.
A THOROUGHFARE LIMITED

01:53:54.615,01:53:59.487
EASTBOUND TO 50 KILOMETRES PER
HOUR TRAFFIC THROUGH THE
BOWNESS COMMERCIAL AREA WITH

01:53:59.489,01:54:04.828
SEVERAL PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS
AND LIMITED WESTBOUND BY 30
KILOMETRE PER HOUR TRAFFIC

01:54:04.830,01:54:11.971
THROUGH PLAY GROUND ZONES,
SCHOOL ZONES AND ADDITIONAL
PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC.

01:54:11.973,01:54:24.589
AS WELL AS TRAFFIC CALMING
MEASURES.
EXHIBIT 5 IS A MAP WITH SOME

01:54:24.591,01:54:29.625
ROADWAYS.
THE PURPLE ONE IS 83rd STREET
WHICH IS REALLY NARROW ROAD,

01:54:29.627,01:54:35.841
KIND OF GOING DOWN, STARTS AT
BEAUFORT ROAD AND IT
PROGRESSES DOWN THE HILL TO

01:54:35.843,01:54:45.074
BOWNESS ROAD.
THE GREENBRIAR STAGE TWO
IMPACT ASSESSMENT DATED JULY

01:54:45.076,01:54:50.510
14th, 2011, SEEMS TO IGNORE
THESE FACTS AS THEY DO NOT
SHOW BOWNESS ROAD IN THE

01:54:50.512,01:54:53.783
NETWORK STUDY AND MAKE NO
REFERENCE TO THE ABILITY OF
BOWNESS ROAD TO HANDLE THE

01:54:53.785,01:55:01.831
INCREASED FLOW.
THERE IS A GREAT REQUEST TO
DECREASE TRAFFIC ON BOWNESS

01:55:01.833,01:55:06.895
ROAD THAT IT NOT BE SEEN AS A
THOROUGHFARE.
THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS

01:55:06.897,01:55:12.636
THAT WE WANTED THE STONY
BY-PASS, WAS TO REDUCE THE
TRAFFIC GOING THROUGH THE

01:55:12.638,01:55:18.438
MIDDLE OF BOWNESS DOWN
BEAUFORT ROAD AND DOWN BOWNESS
ROAD.

01:55:18.440,01:55:23.011
TRANSPORTATION STUDIES AND
TRAFFIC IMPACT STUDIES FAILED
TO ADDRESS TRAFFIC BEYOND 83rd

01:55:23.013,01:55:28.050
STREET INTO BOWNESS ROAD.
THEY ALSO DO NOT ADDRESS THE
IMPACT ON INCREASED TRAFFIC ON

01:55:28.052,01:55:35.518
16th AVENUE THROUGH MONTGOMERY,
POTENTIAL BOTTLENECKS AT THE
85th STREET BRIDGE, THE

01:55:35.520,01:55:39.521
TRANSCANADA HOME ROAD
INTERSECTION AND BOWNESS ROAD
SHAGANAPPI.

01:55:39.523,01:55:44.061
EVEN IF WE GO WITH THE CURRENT
ARP, WE HAVE RESERVATIONS
WHETHER THE PROPOSED

01:55:44.063,01:55:53.911
INFRASTRUCTURE CAN SUPPORT THE
TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT PROPOSED.
AND THAT ENDS THE ADDRESS –

01:55:53.913,01:56:00.913
OUR POINTS ADDRESSING THE ARP
AMENDMENTS.
WE SEPARATED OUR TALK INTO

01:56:00.915,01:56:11.966
THAT AND THE OUTLINE — THE
PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CITY
OF CALGARY BYLAW.

01:56:11.968,01:56:17.401
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH,
MS. MORA.
ALDERMAN STEVENSON?

01:56:17.403,01:56:22.545
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
MS. MORA, IS YOUR PRESIDENT
HERE WITH YOU TODAY, OF YOUR

01:56:22.547,01:56:27.547
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION?
>> NO, THE COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION PRETTY MUCH LEAVES

01:56:27.549,01:56:31.540
THESE MATTERS UP TO THE
PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
COMMITTEE AND THOSE OF US WHO

01:56:31.542,01:56:35.147
CAME TODAY REPRESENT THAT
COMMITTEE.
>> AND WHO’S THE CHAIR OF THAT

01:56:35.149,01:56:40.111
COMMITTEE?
>> THAT WOULD BE
MR. LOZARAVIC.

01:56:40.113,01:56:44.247
>> MY QUESTION TO YOU, WHY
HAVE YOU AS A COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION NOT SAT DOWN WITH

01:56:44.249,01:56:50.395
THE DEVELOPER?
>> I THINK THAT’S A REALLY
GOOD IDEA.

01:56:50.397,01:56:54.604
WE’VE ONLY SEEN THE DEVELOPER
AT OPEN HOUSES.
>> BUT THE DEVELOPER –

01:56:54.606,01:56:58.345
>> — WITH THE CITY.
>> BUT THE DEVELOPER HAS BEEN
REQUESTING MEETINGS WITH YOU

01:56:58.347,01:57:04.981
SINCE FEBRUARY AND THERE’S
BEEN NO MEETING.
WHY WOULD THAT BE?

01:57:04.983,01:57:08.388
>> I’M NOT AWARE OF THAT
DECISION.
SORRY.

01:57:08.390,01:57:17.967
>> I MAY ANSWER.
WE HAVE HAD FAIRLY RECENT
AWARENESS OF THE DIRECTION IN

01:57:17.969,01:57:28.682
WHICH THIS PRODUCT HAS GONE.
AND NOVEMBER OF 2010 IS WHEN
WE BECAME AWARE OF THE LAND

01:57:28.684,01:57:36.483
USE REDESIGNATION AND THE
ISSUE OF THE ARP BEING
AFFECTED WAS MASKED, IT WAS

01:57:36.485,01:57:44.884
NOT BROUGHT OUT IN THE OPEN.
AND THE NEXT THING THAT WE
KNEW IS THAT THERE WAS AN

01:57:44.886,01:57:57.530
AMENDMENT OF THE ARP.
AND OUR DISCUSSIONS HAVE BEEN
MOSTLY WITH THE CITY AND, YES,

01:57:57.532,01:58:02.402
CATHY OBERG HAS TRIED TO REACH
US BUT THIS IS ONLY FAIRLY
RECENTLY.

01:58:02.404,01:58:09.138
>> SO MY HISTORY IS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION WORK AS A DIRECTOR
AND AS THE PRESIDENT, AND WHEN

01:58:09.140,01:58:15.809
THE DEVELOPER OF ANY COMMUNITY
PROJECT WANTS TO SIT DOWN WITH
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION, I

01:58:15.811,01:58:21.053
KNOW WE’RE ALL VOLUNTEERS, AS
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION BOARD OF
DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE AND

01:58:21.055,01:58:27.150
PRESIDENT, BUT WE MAKE SURE
THAT WE FIND THE TIME.
AND MY EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN THE

01:58:27.152,01:58:30.955
DEVELOPER WOULD MEET AT 2:00
ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON OR 2:00
SUNDAY MORNING, IF THAT WAS

01:58:30.957,01:58:36.928
THE REQUEST.
SO MY QUESTION BACK TO YOU IS
THEY HAVE, IN THEIR EVENT

01:58:36.930,01:58:43.028
LISTING HERE, SAID THAT THEY
HAVE REQUESTED MEETINGS WITH
YOU SINCE BACK IN FEBRUARY, SO,

01:58:43.030,01:58:46.869
AGAIN, I ASK WHY WOULDN’T YOU
SIT DOWN WITH HIM?
>> THE MEETING THAT WAS

01:58:46.871,01:58:53.606
REQUESTED WAS HERE IN THE CITY,
WAS REQUESTED BY THE CITY.
>> SO WHAT THE DEVELOPER IS

01:58:53.608,01:59:00.856
SAYING HERE IS THAT THEY HAVE
REQUESTED THESE DIFFERENT
MEETINGS, SO YOU’RE SAYING

01:59:00.858,01:59:05.957
BROWN AND ASSOCIATES HAS NOT
REQUESTED A MEETING WITH YOU?
>> BROWN AND ASSOCIATES, I

01:59:05.959,01:59:10.187
DON’T KNOW WHO BROWN AND
ASSOCIATES IS.
>> THAT’S KATHY OBERG.

01:59:10.189,01:59:16.732
>> OKAY, WELL, I KNOW THAT SHE
HAS ATTEMPTED TO REACH THE
ASSOCIATION RECENTLY.

01:59:16.734,01:59:21.286
>> OKAY.
THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
THANK YOU.

01:59:21.288,01:59:28.998
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN STEVENSON.
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

01:59:29.000,01:59:36.658
I’M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND, I
GUESS, A COUPLE OF THINGS.
ONE BEING SPECIFICALLY IN WHAT

01:59:36.660,01:59:44.801
CAPACITY IT IS THAT YOU GUYS
ARE HERE TODAY, IS IT AS AN
ADJACENT COMMUNITY OR AS PART

01:59:44.803,01:59:49.108
OF THIS COMMUNITY OR THIS
BEING PART OF THE BOWNESS
COMMUNITY?

01:59:49.110,01:59:55.417
>> GREENBRIAR IS CONSIDERED
PART OF BOWNESS.
ACCORDING TO OUR AREA

01:59:55.419,01:59:58.347
REDEVELOPMENT PLAN.
>> OKAY.
THANK YOU FOR THAT.

01:59:58.349,02:00:03.055
SO NOW SOME OF THE CONCERNS
THAT I’VE HEARD IS IN REGARDS
TO THE CONCENTRATION OF

02:00:03.057,02:00:11.825
SPECIFIC TYPE USES, AND I’M
JUST WONDERING WHAT THE REST
OF THE COMMUNITIES DEVELOPED

02:00:11.827,02:00:15.193
OUT LIKE.
>> BOWNESS USED TO BE A
VILLAGE.

02:00:15.195,02:00:21.802
IT HISTORICALLY WAS — IT’S A
LARGE COMMUNITY.
IT’S AN ISOLATED COMMUNITY

02:00:21.804,02:00:28.011
BECAUSE IT’S BOUNDED BY THE
RIVER AND THE RIVER VALLEY HE
IS CASUALTY, THE TRANSCANADA

02:00:28.013,02:00:35.849
HIGHWAY AND TONY TRAIL –
SKARMT — SO WE ONLY HAVE FOUR
ENTRANCES.

02:00:35.851,02:00:41.620
– ESCARPMENT.
IT’S KIND OF LIKE AN ISLAND.
>> PREDOMINANTLY TO THE

02:00:41.622,02:00:46.360
PROPOSED USES IN THIS SECTOR
ONLY, NOT LOOKING AT CELLS 1
AND ALL THE OTHER CELLS YOU

02:00:46.362,02:00:50.961
GUYS HAVE REFERENCED BECAUSE
THAT’S NOT BEFORE US TODAY,
ALTHOUGH I APPRECIATE THAT YOU

02:00:50.963,02:00:57.237
SEE THE ENTIRE CONTEXT OF THE
ENTIRE DEVELOPMENT AS FORMING
PART OF THE DISCUSSIONS TODAY.

02:00:57.239,02:01:02.302
WHAT IS BEFORE US TODAY,
THOUGH, IS JUST STRICTLY THIS
PARTICULAR LAND USE.

02:01:02.304,02:01:09.861
AND I’M JUST WONDERING,
INSOFAR AS WHAT’S BEING
PROPOSED HERE, WHAT KIND OF

02:01:09.863,02:01:15.870
SIMILAR TYPE DEVELOPMENTS
CURRENTLY EXIST IN THE BOWNESS
COMMUNITY THAT ARE SIMILAR TO

02:01:15.872,02:01:20.975
WHAT’S BEING PROPOSED HERE?
MULTI-FAMILY –
>> BOWNESS IS AN OLD

02:01:20.977,02:01:25.051
COMMUNITY.
IT’S PRETTY MUCH BUILT OUT.
THIS IS ONE OF OUR ONLY WE

02:01:25.053,02:01:35.231
MIGHT CALL IT A BROWN FIELD.
IT WAS A GOLF COURSE BEFORE.
IT WAS ALSO REPORTED TO BE A

02:01:35.233,02:01:40.900
NUISANCE GROUND.
>> IS THERE A LOT OF
MULTI-FAMILY CURRENTLY IN

02:01:40.902,02:01:46.137
BOWNESS?
>> BOWNESS IS TRAGICALLY LOW
DENSITY, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU

02:01:46.139,02:01:54.273
COMPARE IT TO WHAT SOME OF THE
NEW PLANS CALL FOR, THE
UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY USUAL AN

02:01:54.275,02:01:58.349
STUDY STUDENTS HAVE DONE A
LOVELY PLAN FOR BOWNESS.
– URBAN.

02:01:58.351,02:02:05.132
THEY HAVE REALLY RAISED THE
DENSITY AND ALONG
TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS,

02:02:05.134,02:02:12.734
TRANSIT CORRIDORS.
AND THIS IS OUR GOAL FOR THE
MAIN PART OF BOWNESS AS WELL

02:02:12.736,02:02:17.579
AS THE NEW PART OF BOWNESS.
>> AND I’M TRYING TO THINK OF
THIS WHOLISTICALLY.

02:02:17.581,02:02:23.089
AND IN LOOKING AT WHAT
POTENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES MAY
EXIST WITHIN THE COMMUNITY TO

02:02:23.091,02:02:28.632
ACCOMMODATE THE NEEDS OF THE
MUNICIPAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR
THE INTENSEIFICATION,

02:02:28.634,02:02:33.743
INCREASING EMPLOYMENT
OPPORTUNITIES, PROVIDING A
MULTITUDE OF DIFFERENT HOUSING

02:02:33.745,02:02:41.314
CHOICES, AND I’M WONDERING
WHAT THE COMMUNITY IS
ENVIESING FOR THE FUTURE, IS

02:02:41.316,02:02:46.815
IT CONVERTING EXISTING
SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL INTO
MULTI-FAMILY, SPREADING IT OUT

02:02:46.817,02:02:55.864
THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY?
>> THERE ARE POCKETS OF BOWNESS
THAT ARE MUCH HIGHER DENSITY

02:02:55.866,02:03:01.872
SO THAT DOES EXIST AND IT
EXISTS PRIMARILY AROUND THE
BOWNESS ROAD CORRIDOR.

02:03:01.874,02:03:09.205
THERE’S A LIMITED COMMERCIAL
ZONE.
IT’S INTERESTING THAT YOU ASK

02:03:09.207,02:03:11.545
THAT QUESTION BECAUSE IT’S A
QUESTION THAT WE’RE GOING BACK
TO THE COMMUNITY WITH, IS

02:03:11.547,02:03:16.183
WHAT’S YOUR VISION FOR THE
FUTURE?
BECAUSE, AS ALWAYS, THERE ARE

02:03:16.185,02:03:23.124
DIE-HARDS WHO WANT TO PRESERVE
THOSE ASPECTS OF LOW DENSITY,
SINGLE-FAMILY DWELLINGS AT THE

02:03:23.126,02:03:30.430
EXPENSE OF BEING A SUSTAINABLE
COMMUNITY IN THE FUTURE, BUT
PRIMARILY, WE’RE LOOKING AT

02:03:30.432,02:03:35.365
HOW DO WE DEVELOP ALONG THAT
COMMERCIAL CORE, WHY CAN’T WE
PUT, YOU KNOW, SECOND STOREYS

02:03:35.367,02:03:43.106
ON OUR LITTLE FLAT LEVEL
ONE-STOREY RETAIL UNITS ALONG
THERE?

02:03:43.108,02:03:47.878
HOW DO WE ENCOURAGE COMMERCIAL
DEVELOPMENT AND LIVE UP WORK
DOWN DEVELOPMENT?

02:03:47.880,02:03:51.635
WE ARE LOOKING AT HOW DO WE DO
THIS.
THERE’S NO — THERE ARE NO

02:03:51.637,02:03:56.943
QUICK AND NO EASY ANSWERS.
>> I CAN TELL YOU ONE ANSWER
THAT I’VE LEARNED HERE THROUGH

02:03:56.945,02:04:03.717
COUNCIL IS THERE’S TWO THINGS
THAT PEOPLE DON’T WANT.
SPRAWL AND DENSITY.

02:04:03.719,02:04:11.389
(Laughing)
IT SEEMS RATHER ODD.
SO YOU’RE LOOKING AT, I GUESS,

02:04:11.391,02:04:18.734
LONG-TERM VISION TO INTEGRATE
MORE COMMERCIAL THROUGHOUT THE
COMMUNITY POSSIBLY AND

02:04:18.736,02:04:23.071
MORALITY NATIVE FORMS OF
HOUSING THROUGHOUT THE
COMMUNITY AND DO YOU THINK

02:04:23.073,02:04:28.944
THAT THAT WILL HAVE A
DIFFERENT IMPACT IN REGARDS TO
THE ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE THAN

02:04:28.946,02:04:31.610
WHAT’S CURRENTLY PROPOSED
HERE?
>> WELL, ONE OF THE THINGS

02:04:31.612,02:04:35.305
THAT RARELY COMES UP WHEN
YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT INCREASED
COMMERCIAL IS WHAT HAPPENS IF

02:04:35.307,02:04:41.245
WE’RE MORE SUPPORTIVE OF HOME
OCCUPATION?
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU LOOK AT A

02:04:41.247,02:04:46.196
DIFFERENT WAY OF CREATING
EMPLOYMENT IN THE COMMUNITY?
BOWNESS ACTUALLY HAS A FAIRLY

02:04:46.198,02:04:52.638
HIGH PERCENTAGE OF HOME
OCCUPATION, BUSINESSES GOING
ON IN THE AREA.

02:04:52.640,02:04:57.697
SO IT’S HOW DO WE THINK
OUTSIDE THE BOX AROUND THIS,
HOW DO WE BALANCE THAT NEED

02:04:57.699,02:05:05.205
FOR HIGHER DENSITY WITH AN
UNDERSTANDABLE DESIRE TO SORT
OF HAVE PRIVACY IN YOUR

02:05:05.207,02:05:12.414
BACKYARD?
SO I THINK THERE ARE ALWAYS
GOING TO BE POCKETS OF BOWNESS

02:05:12.416,02:05:18.462
THAT WILL REMAIN FOREVER AS
VERY LOW DENSITY BUT THERE ARE
AREAS THAT ARE BEING LOOKED AT

02:05:18.464,02:05:24.674
AS POTENTIALS FOR — AND
GREENBRIAR STUDY AREA WAS ONE
OF THEM, HOW DO WE DO A HIGHER

02:05:24.676,02:05:30.105
DENSITY, HOW DO WE MIX THAT
WITH SOME RETAIL AND SOME
COMMERCIAL, AND THAT WAS THE

02:05:30.107,02:05:36.041
ANSWER THAT WAS DEVELOPED, AND
IT WASN’T JUST CITIZENS OF
BOWNESS WHO DEVELOPED THAT,

02:05:36.043,02:05:42.185
THAT WAS DEVELOPED BY URBAN
PLANNERS.
>> NOW, I’M JUST THINKING IN

02:05:42.187,02:05:50.057
REGARDS TO CURRENT COMMERCIAL
DEVELOPMENTS THAT EXIST WITHIN
BOWNESS, DO YOU FEEL THAT WHAT

02:05:50.059,02:06:02.040
EXISTS IS SUFFICIENT, WHAT’S
BEING PROPOSED IS TOO MUCH FOR
THE BOWNESS AREA IN PARTICULAR

02:06:02.042,02:06:11.080
OR IS IT BECAUSE OF THE
CONCENTRATION PRIMARILY?
>> THERE’S A RULE WHEN THE

02:06:11.082,02:06:15.491
PUBLIC — SORRY, A PROVINCIAL
HIGHWAY WITH A LARGE GRADE
SEPARATED INTERCHANGE AS WE

02:06:15.493,02:06:24.234
SEE AT STONY TRAIL ON
TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY THAT YOU
MAY NOT HAVE EXITS TO LOCAL

02:06:24.236,02:06:29.334
AREAS WITHIN A CERTAIN NUMBER
OF KILOMETRES OF THAT
INTERCHANGE BECAUSE THAT

02:06:29.336,02:06:37.434
INTERCHANGE EXISTS BESIDE
GREENBRIAR, WE MAY NOT HAVE
EXITS AND ENTRANCES TO THAT

02:06:37.436,02:06:43.409
AREA OFF OF THE — IT’S
SURROUNDED ON TWO SIDE BY
HIGHWAYS BUT IT MAY NOT USE

02:06:43.411,02:06:47.112
THOSE HIGHWAYS AND THAT’S I
THINK ONE OF THE PROBLEMS.
IF WE HAD MORE WAYS TO GET IN

02:06:47.114,02:06:52.745
AND OUT OF THERE, THERE
WOULDN’T BE NEARLY AS MUCH
CRITICISM OF THE PROJECT.

02:06:52.747,02:07:00.483
>> INTERESTING.
EVEN THOUGH THE TRANSPORTATION
IMPACT ASSESSMENT SUGGESTS

02:07:00.485,02:07:05.317
THAT FUTURE UPGRADES WILL
ACCOMMODATE THE NEED?
>> SOMETIMES I WONDER IF THE

02:07:05.319,02:07:10.256
PEOPLE WHO DO THE TRAFFIC
ASSESSMENTS HAVE EVER REALLY
VISITED THE SITE.

02:07:10.258,02:07:15.961
>> OH, I THINK THEY HAVE.
>> I WOULD HOPE SO.
>> I HAVE NO FURTHER QUESTIONS,

02:07:15.963,02:07:18.001
YOUR WORSHIP.
THANK YOU.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

02:07:18.003,02:07:24.700
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I HAVE NO

02:07:24.702,02:07:28.680
QUESTIONS.
I DON’T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE
HAS OR IF YOU HAVE.

02:07:28.682,02:07:33.908
>> I DON’T HAVE ANY.
BUT ALDERMAN LOWE’S LIGHT IS
ON.

02:07:33.910,02:07:36.442
>> FOR ADMINISTRATION.
>> FOR ADMINISTRATION, YOUR
WORSHIP.

02:07:36.444,02:07:39.711
>> IT’S FOR ADMINISTRATION.
IS THERE ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD
LIKE TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION TO

02:07:39.713,02:07:42.514
THIS PROPOSAL, ANYONE ELSE WHO
WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION?

02:07:42.516,02:07:46.625
OKAY.
SO WE’LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC
HEARING, THEN, AND WE’LL TAKE

02:07:46.627,02:07:50.201
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION

>>

02:07:50.203,02:07:53.373
(Iinaudible)
>> I’M SORRY, I’M SORRY, I’M
SORRY.

02:07:54.775,02:08:01.008
WE’LL PRETEND I DIDN’T SAY
THAT LAST BIT.
GOOD MORNING, SIR.

02:08:01.010,02:08:07.088
>> YOUR WORSHIP, MEMBERS OF
THE COUNCIL, MY NAME IS PETER
MORRIEY.

02:08:07.090,02:08:16.661
I AM A RESIDENT OF BOWNESS AND
I SPEAK ON MY OWN BEHALF.
I HAVE LEARNED, I HAVE BEEN

02:08:16.663,02:08:25.100
LIVING THERE FOR A WHILE NOW,
AND I LIKE VILLAGE LIVING.
I GREW UP IN A VILLAGE MYSELF,

02:08:25.102,02:08:32.436
AND I HAVE LOOKED AT THE
DEVELOPMENT PLAN, THE CURRENT
PLAN.

02:08:32.438,02:08:39.840
THERE IS PROVIDED A PLACE FOR
A COMMUNITY, A VILLAGE-LIKE
COMMUNITY WITH A LITTLE BIT OF

02:08:39.842,02:08:45.757
HIGHER DENSITY THAN THE
CURRENT BOWNESS.
BUT STILL, LIKE A VILLAGE, IN

02:08:45.759,02:08:54.995
A VILLAGE OR IN A LOCAL
COMMUNITY, THE COMMERCIAL
DEVELOPMENT WOULD SUPPORT THE

02:08:54.997,02:09:03.007
RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT,
MEANING THAT, IN THIS
PARTICULAR CASE, CONSIDERING

02:09:03.009,02:09:08.505
THE TYPICAL RESIDENT OF
BOWNESS IS NOT HOLDING AN
OFFICE JOB.

02:09:08.507,02:09:13.379
AND I DO NOT SEE LOCALLY THE
NEED FOR OFFICE BUILDINGS IN
THE FIRST PLACE.

02:09:13.381,02:09:22.728
IT WOULD CREATE AN OUTFLOW OF
TRAFFIC FOR THE PERSON WHO IS
GOING OUT TO DO PHYSICAL

02:09:22.730,02:09:30.602
LABOUR SOMEWHERE ELSE AND AN
INFLOW OF WHITE SHIRT WORKERS
INTO THE AREA.

02:09:30.604,02:09:40.869
WHICH IS NOT IN LAND IN MY
VIEW WITH THE COMMON — WITH A
COMMUNITY INTENDED.

02:09:40.871,02:09:51.893
SORRY.
THE CURRENT ARP WOULD BE
PREVENTING US FROM THAT

02:09:51.895,02:10:03.038
PRACTISE AND THEREFORE I
PERSONALLY WOULD OPPOSE TO THE
AMENDMENT AT THAT POINT.

02:10:03.040,02:10:14.641
LOOKING AT TRANSPORTATION –
LOOKING AT THE ISSUE OF
TRAFFIC.

02:10:14.643,02:10:20.819
THE AREA IS LANDLOCKED ALMOST
ON FOUR SIDES.
THERE IS NO OPPORTUNITY TO GET

02:10:20.821,02:10:25.919
OUT OF THE PLACE.
EVEN IF YOU WOULD MAKE IT AN
EIGHT-LANE HIGHWAY TO GET OUT

02:10:25.921,02:10:36.165
OF THE PLACE, IT WILL STILL BE
ONE PLACE OF INTENSE, ONE
PLACE OF EXIT.

02:10:36.167,02:10:50.245
AND I DO NOT SEE THAT AS LET’S
SAY AN EXAMPLE OF VISION FOR A
PLANNING COMMITTEE TO HAVE A

02:10:50.247,02:10:54.281
DEVELOPMENT THAT ONLY HAS ONE
PLACE TO GET IF ANYTHING GOES
WRONG.

02:10:54.283,02:11:01.448
WE KNOW THAT YOU DO NOT PLAN
FOR DISASTERS, AND WE KNOW
THEY STILL HAPPEN.

02:11:01.450,02:11:11.689
SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE
PERSONALLY IS TO HAVE AN
ESCAPE, NOT ONLY IN EMERGENCY,

02:11:11.691,02:11:15.695
FOR ONLY EMERGENCY VEHICLES
BUT AN EMERGENCY JUST FOR
PEOPLE TO GO TO WORK IF

02:11:15.697,02:11:21.910
THERE’S A FENDER-BENDER ON ONE
CORNER.
SO THEREFORE I WOULD THINK,

02:11:21.912,02:11:33.454
DEPENDING ON THE VISION OF THE
PLANNING COMMITTEE, I WOULD
THINK WE WOULDN’T LOOK AT

02:11:33.456,02:11:40.029
PLANNING ANY DEVELOPMENT
BEFORE SUFFICIENT SUPPORTING
INFRASTRUCTURE IS IN PLACE.

02:11:40.031,02:11:53.168
THEN WHILE SITTING HERE, I
PICKED UP THE TERM CASH IN
LIEU, AND I DIDN’T KNOW THAT

02:11:53.170,02:12:01.206
PRACTISE EXISTED, I HAVE NEVER
SEEN SOME PEOPLE PAYING ME FOR
ALLOWING SOMEBODY ELSE SELLING

02:12:01.208,02:12:10.695
GREEN SPACE TO SOMEBODY ELSE,
ALTHOUGH I LIVE IN BOWNESS.
AND I WAS RATHER SHOCKED TO

02:12:10.697,02:12:16.041
SEE NO –
(Indiscernible)
WHEN WE WERE TOLD THAT IT WAS

02:12:16.043,02:12:20.502
COMMON PRACTISE.
SO I ALSO HAVE RESERVATIONS
ABOUT THAT.

02:12:20.504,02:12:28.547
I HAVE NO OBJECTIONS TO
DEVELOPING OF LAND THAT IS
LAYING THERE IDLE.

02:12:28.549,02:12:36.693
BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME
VISION IN IT, AND I WOULD LIKE
TO SEE THE BOWNESS AREA STILL

02:12:36.695,02:12:46.160
BE BOWNESS, NOT SOME KIND OF A
SETTLING TOWN SOMEWHERE ELSE.
I ALSO WOULD NOT LIKE TO SEE A

02:12:46.162,02:12:54.674
BIGGER COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT
THAN WOULD BE IN BALANCE WITH
THE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN

02:12:54.676,02:13:02.114
PLACE, MAINLY BECAUSE I THINK
THAT THE UNFAIR COMPETITION
FOR THE EXISTING BOWNESS

02:13:02.116,02:13:08.034
BUSINESSES.
I THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS?

02:13:08.036,02:13:13.511
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.
ALDERMAN MAR?
THAT’S FOR ADMINISTRATION.

02:13:13.513,02:13:17.355
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
SO ANYONE ELSE LIKE TO SPEAK
IN OPPOSITION TO THIS

02:13:17.357,02:13:38.564
PROPOSAL?
>> MAYOR, ALDERMEN, MY NAME IS
OSCAR FAK.

02:13:38.566,02:13:45.071
I’M NOT AGAINST PER SE THIS
DEVELOPMENT.
I HAVE BEEN GOING TO BOWNESS

02:13:45.073,02:13:52.345
PARK SINCE THE 1952s.
BOWNESS WAS A NICE AREA, STILL
IS.

02:13:52.347,02:14:07.065
BUT YOU HEARD SO MANY COMMENTS,
THERE’S ONLY ONE ACCESS TO IT
IN AND OUT.

02:14:07.067,02:14:13.029
IT’S A FIRE TRAP.
THE CITY BYLAW SAYS YOU NEED
TWO ACCESSES IN AND OUT, NOT

02:14:13.031,02:14:22.001
ONE, AND I DON’T KNOW WHY
IT’S EVEN HERE BEFORE THE
CITY COUNCIL BECAUSE THAT’S

02:14:22.003,02:14:29.611
THE RULE AND LAW.
AS FAR AS DENSITY, IT’S, I
THINK, TO SO MUCH BEING SAID,

02:14:29.613,02:14:35.518
IT WAS PROPOSED PROPERLY, I
THINK THIS PROBABLY WOULD
HAVE BEEN APPROVED BUT FIRST

02:14:35.520,02:14:43.529
IT NEEDS TO ACCESSES, AND
ALDERMAN MAR, YOU KNOW WHAT
I’M TALKING ABOUT.

02:14:43.531,02:14:50.140
YOU’RE KIND OF GRINNING.
WELL, IT IS, IF THERE’S A
FIRE RIGHT ON THE

02:14:50.142,02:14:59.822
INTERCHANGE, THERE’S OLYMPIC
GOING UP THE HILL, AND SINCE
YOU’RE SMILING AND LAUGHING,

02:14:59.824,02:15:07.316
THIS ROAD THAT GOES FROM
TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY DOWN THE
HILL TO BOWNESS, THAT’S ONLY

02:15:07.318,02:15:19.775
MISERABLE TWO-LANE ROAD.
THAT SHOULD BE WIDENED ALSO.
AND THERE’S A RESTAURANT UP

02:15:19.777,02:15:25.676
ON TOP OF THE HILL, IT’S A
NARROW ROAD.
ALL THESE THINGS ARE NOT

02:15:25.678,02:15:28.310
BEING MENTIONED TO WHAT’S
REALLY HAPPENING WITH THIS
DEVELOPMENT.

02:15:28.312,02:15:35.147
LIKE THE PEOPLE SAID, IT’S
BEING SORT OF RAILROADED
THROUGH, AND IT’S NOT RIGHT.

02:15:35.149,02:15:42.483
I’VE GOT A PIECE OF LAND UP
NORTHEAST, I’VE BEEN
RAILROADED ALSO.

02:15:42.485,02:15:48.255
AND THAT’S WHY I’M BRINGING
THESE THINGS UP.
WE SHOULD BE CAREFUL.

02:15:48.257,02:15:54.558
I’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT MY
LAND, WE NEED INTERCHANGES,
WE NEED UNDERPASSES,

02:15:54.560,02:16:02.732
OVERPASSES, THEY LAUGH AT
ME.
YOU SEE, MAYOR, AND THE

02:16:02.734,02:16:06.102
TUNNEL, BUT WE GOT TO BE
CAREFUL HOW WE PLAN THINGS
AHEAD.

02:16:06.104,02:16:11.602
WE GOT TO PLAN AHEAD.
50, 100 YEARS AHEAD.
WE’RE NOT DOING IT HERE.

02:16:11.604,02:16:17.735
WHY AREN’T WE?
I HAVE MENTIONED THESE
THINGS BEFORE.

02:16:17.737,02:16:23.403
AM I TALKING TO A BRICK
WALL?
I HOPE NOT.

02:16:23.405,02:16:29.940
MAYOR, YOU’RE THE NEW MAYOR.
I ASK ABOUT THE TUNNEL ALSO,
AND YOU SORT OF INDICATED

02:16:29.942,02:16:34.247
DON’T TELL ME TOO MUCH.
>> DON’T GET OFF TOPIC HERE.
>> I KNOW.

02:16:34.249,02:16:38.153
>> I’M ALWAYS TRYING TO
PROTECT YOU.
>> I KNOW, I KNOW.

02:16:38.155,02:16:43.363
I’M TRYING TO MENTION THESE
THINGS, WE GOTTA PUT
EVERYTHING ON THE SURFACE,

02:16:43.365,02:16:48.105
BRING EVERYTHING OUT IN THE
OPEN, AND THEN HAVE A GOOD
DISCUSSION.

02:16:48.107,02:16:56.244
WHY IS THE CITY DOING SO
MUCH BEHIND CLOSED DOORS?
THAT’S NOT RIGHT.

02:16:56.246,02:17:00.413
THE RECOMMENDATION IS WE
NEED ANOTHER ACCESS TO IT,
AND THE ZONING PROBABLY WILL

02:17:00.415,02:17:05.079
BE APPROVED IF YOU GIVE THE
COMMUNITY A LITTLE BIT OF
BREATHING SPACE.

02:17:05.081,02:17:10.570
THEY KNOW WHAT THEY WANT.
THEY LIVE THERE.
AREN’T YOU LISTENING TO

02:17:10.572,02:17:15.403
THEM?
ARE YOU GOING TO LISTEN TO
ME WHEN I COME INTO A PLAN

02:17:15.405,02:17:22.948
FOR THE NORTHEAST?
OF COURSE NOT.
THIS IS WHAT I’M SAYING.

02:17:22.950,02:17:29.354
LOOK AT THE OFFICE BUILDING
THAT WAS BUILT UP OFF
GLENMORE TRAIL, THERE WAS

02:17:29.356,02:17:33.800
THE FIRST ALLIANCE CHURCH,
THERE’S ONLY ONE ACCESS TO
IT ALSO.

02:17:33.802,02:17:38.535
THERE’S ELDERLY PEOPLE IN
NURSING HOMES AND WE’RE
GOING TO BUILD ANOTHER — I

02:17:38.537,02:17:43.269
SPOKE OUT ON IT AGAINST IT,
THEY TURNED IT DOWN BECAUSE
WE NEED TWO ACCESSES, EVEN

02:17:43.271,02:17:52.556
HERE.
I HOPE I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR.
WE NEED GOOD PLANNING, GOOD

02:17:52.558,02:17:58.634
LEADERSHIP.
MAYOR, GO TO IT.
>> THANKS.

02:17:58.636,02:18:03.676
>> AND I SHOULD POINT OUT,
WHEN I LOOK AT THE MAP,
THERE ARE TWO.

02:18:03.678,02:18:07.313
>> NO, THERE’S ONE, THAT’S
ALL.
>> ALL RIGHT.

02:18:07.315,02:18:09.575
THANK YOU, SIR.
>> I’VE GOT IT RIGHT HERE.
THANK YOU.

02:18:09.577,02:18:18.743
>> THANK YOU.
WE ARE AT A PRE-SDERMD
RECESS TIME BUT I WANTED TO

02:18:18.745,02:18:23.087
SEE IF THERE WERE ANY MORE
MEMBERS OF PUBLIC THAT WANT
TO SPEAK ON THIS BEFORE WE

02:18:23.089,02:18:26.596
RECESS AND IF THERE ARE,
I’LL ASK FOR A MOTION IT
EXTEND OUR SESSION.

02:18:26.598,02:18:30.933
ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE
TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION?
WE DECLARE THE PUBLIC

ALL RIGHT.

QUESTIONS TO ADMINISTRATION
ONLY RIGHT NOW, PLEASE.
QUESTIONS TO ADMINISTRATION

02:20:23.259,02:20:27.524
ONLY.
BECAUSE I THINK WE’RE GOING
TO HAVE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT

02:20:27.526,02:20:30.794
MOTION ON THE FLOOR ONCE
WE’VE FINISHED QUESTIONS TO
ADMINISTRATION BUT LET’S DO

02:20:30.796,02:20:34.436
IT IN THAT ORDER TODAY.
SO WITH QUESTIONS TO
ADMINISTRATION, ALDERMAN

02:20:34.438,02:20:38.497
MAR.
>> SORRY, YOUR WORSHIP,
POINT OF CLARIFICATION.

02:20:38.499,02:20:41.875
OVER LUNCH, THE
ADMINISTRATION HAS NOTICED
THERE’S AN INSICHB IS I

02:20:41.877,02:20:45.943
BETWEEN THE MAPS.
THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO
THE ARP MAP AND THE MAP

02:20:45.945,02:20:49.183
THAT’S ACTUALLY IN THE
REPORT.
– INCONSISTENCY WITH THE

02:20:49.185,02:20:53.527
NUMBERS.
>> OH.
>> MR. LOCKWOOD CAN EXPLAIN

02:20:53.529,02:20:57.264
THE REASONS FOR THE CHANGES
AND THE ERROR.
>> OKAY.

02:20:57.266,02:21:01.797
>> DOES THAT MEAN IT NEEDS
TO BE READVERTISED THEN?
>> WHEN SHE COMES BACK, I

02:21:01.799,02:21:06.705
WILL ASK HER THAT QUESTION
BUT LET’S HEAR THE CHANGES
NOW.

02:21:06.707,02:21:16.780
YOU CAN SIT DOWN, ALDERMAN
MAR.
WE’LL LET HIM FINISH.

02:21:34.642,02:21:40.035
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THIS IS THE
ACTUAL MAP ASSOCIATED WITH
THE LAND USE REDESIGNATION.

02:21:40.037,02:21:44.566
PARDON ME, I’M SORRY, WITH
THE AMENDMENT TO THE ARP.
YOU’LL NOTICE IN YELLOW, YOU

02:21:44.568,02:21:52.275
SEE THE 541 TO 800.
IN THE ACTUAL REPORT,
THERE’S A PROPOSED MAP 3C,

02:21:52.277,02:22:00.452
IN THE REPORT, THE DENSITY
MAXIMUM THAT READS 873.
SO THERE’S AN INCONSISTENCY

02:22:00.454,02:22:05.189
BETWEEN WHAT IS REQUIRED IN
THE ACTUAL AMENDMENT TO THE
ARP AND WHAT HAS BEEN NOTED

02:22:05.191,02:22:10.190
IN THE REPORT.
NOW, FOR THE SAKE OF
CONSISTENCY, AND IN

02:22:10.192,02:22:14.521
CONSULTATION WITH THE
APPLICANT, THEY ARE
COMFORTABLE WITH THE MAXIMUM

02:22:14.523,02:22:20.358
CAP ON THIS TO BE 800 AS
OPPOSED TO THE 873 WHICH IS
IN THE REPORT.

02:22:20.360,02:22:25.404
ON THAT BASIS, JUST FOR
INFORMATION TO COUNCIL, IT
DOES NOT IN ANY WAY CHANGE

02:22:25.406,02:22:28.872
THE OVERALL DENSITY OF THE
SITE.
THE DENSITY REQUIRED WITH

02:22:28.874,02:22:35.652
THISOULD BE 12.61 UNITS
PER ACRE AND THAT IS
CONSISTENT WITH THE

02:22:35.654,02:22:42.530
INTENTION OF THE CHANGES IN
THE ARP AND ALSO IT IS UNDER
THE 13 MAX WHICH IS BEING

02:22:42.532,02:22:47.511
CHANGED IN ASSOCIATION WITH
THE ARP.
YOUR WORSHIP, THAT IS A

02:22:47.513,02:22:55.942
SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THAT
THE 73, THE 873 WHICH IS ON
THE MAP IN THE REPORT, IN

02:22:55.944,02:23:00.179
ESSENCE, IT’S BEING
REDISTRIBUTED ELSEWHERE TO
THE OTHER SITES BUT AS I’VE

02:23:00.181,02:23:04.720
JUST STATED, IT DOES NOT
CHANGE THE OVERALL DENSITY
OF THE ENTIRE COLLECTION OF

02:23:04.722,02:23:10.166
DENSITY BETWEEN CELLS 1 TO 5
AND IT DOES NOT COMPROMISE
THE INTENTIONS OF THE

02:23:10.168,02:23:14.727
DEVELOPER IN THIS INSTANCE.
>> OKAY.
MISS SLOAN, YOU’RE OKAY WITH

02:23:14.729,02:23:22.177
THAT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, JUST TO
ENSURE THAT WE HAVE OUR

02:23:22.179,02:23:27.847
NUMBERS CORRECT, I JUST
WANTED TO CONFIRM THAT ALL
OF THE NUMBERS ARE STAYING

02:23:27.849,02:23:36.055
THE SAME EXCEPT THE BOTTOM
TOTAL, BUT I DON’T THINK
THAT’S CORRECT.

02:23:38.188,02:23:40.823
YOUR WORSHIP, WE DO
APOLOGIZE FOR THE CONFUSION
HERE.

02:23:40.825,02:23:48.130
WE HAD A TECHNICAL ERROR IN
THAT THE WRONG MAP WAS
SUBSTITUTED IN THE BYLAW.

02:23:48.132,02:23:54.534
IF I CAN STEP BACK FOR A
MOMENT, THE CORRECT MAP AND
THE ASSOCIATED NUMBERS ARE

02:23:54.536,02:23:59.709
IN THE CPC REPORT.
THAT IS WHAT THE APPLICANT
HAD REQUESTED AND THAT WAS

02:23:59.711,02:24:05.649
THE ADMINISTRATION’S
RECOMMENDATIONS.
THE MAP THAT I HAVE — THAT

02:24:05.651,02:24:13.167
IS ON THE SCREEN RIGHT NOW
WITH THE NUMBERS REFLECTS
THE CPC REPORT WITH THE SOLE

02:24:13.169,02:24:21.460
CHANGE OF REDUCING THE
NUMBER OF UNITS IN CELL 3 TO
800 INSTEAD OF 873.

02:24:21.462,02:24:26.431
THIS IS NOT WHAT THE
APPLICANT WISHES.
HOWEVER, IN CONSULTATION

02:24:26.433,02:24:34.634
WITH MISS SLOAN, WE WOULD
HAVE TO READVERTISE TO
APPROVE THE 873 TODAY.

02:24:34.636,02:24:39.403
DEPENDING ON HOW COUNCIL
WISHES TO PROCEED, WE HAVE
AN AGREEMENT WITH THE

02:24:39.405,02:24:45.048
APPLICANT THAT THEY WOULD BE
HAPPY WITH THREE READINGS,
IF COUNCIL SO WISHES TODAY,

02:24:45.050,02:24:51.676
BASED ON THE 800 NUMBER, AND
WE WOULD COME BACK WITH A
REVISION WHICH MUST BE

02:24:51.678,02:24:55.376
ADVERTISED AND CORRECTED
THROUGH A SUBSEQUENT PUBLIC
HEARING.

02:24:55.378,02:25:00.522
I’M HAVING A PROPER MAP DONE
WITHOUT MY CHICKEN SCRATCH,
AND IT SHOULD ARRIVE

02:25:00.524,02:25:03.718
MOMENTARILY.
IT’S JUST COMING RIGHT
THROUGH THE DOOR.

02:25:03.720,02:25:09.260
SO IF COUNCIL WISHES TO
PROCEED TODAY, WE WOULD
SUGGEST ADOPTING THIS MAP

02:25:09.262,02:25:15.301
WHICH, AS I INDICATED,
REFLECTS THE CPC
RECOMMENDATION WITH THE SOLE

02:25:15.303,02:25:20.643
CHANGE OF CORRECTING THE
TOTAL NUMBER OF UNITS AT THE
BOTTOM, WHICH WAS IN ERROR,

02:25:20.645,02:25:29.110
AND THE 800 NUMBER WHICH WAS
STATED AS 873 IN THE
ORIGINAL CPC REPORT.

02:25:29.112,02:25:35.916
>> THANK, MS. AXWORTHY.
MS. SLOAN, IS THIS SOMETHING
TO BE AMENDED AT SECOND

02:25:35.918,02:25:40.393
READING OR WOULD IT REQUIRE
ANOTHER PUBLIC HEARING?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, IF THE

02:25:40.395,02:25:43.560
DENSITIES ARE REDUCED FROM
WHAT WAS ADVERTISED, AND I
DON’T HAVE ANY CONCERNS.

02:25:43.562,02:25:48.088
THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHAT WAS
CONTAINED IN THE CPC REPORT
IS HIGHER IN SOME CASES THAN

02:25:48.090,02:25:52.993
WHAT WAS ADVERTISED AND I DO
HAVE A CONCERN WITH THAT.
IF IT’S JUST ADDITION OF THE

02:25:52.995,02:25:56.400
COLUMNS SUCH THAT THE BOTTOM
NUMBER CHANGES BECAUSE
THERE’S ALSO AN ADDITION

02:25:56.402,02:26:00.786
PROBLEM ON THE BYLAW THAT’S
BEFORE COUNCIL, I DON’T HAVE
A PROBLEM WITH THAT.

02:26:00.788,02:26:04.990
BUT IF THE NUMBERS IN THE
COLUMNS START GOING UP, I DO
HAVE CONCERNS.

02:26:04.992,02:26:07.753
>> YOU WOULDN’T ALLOW US TO
DO THE AMENDMENT THEN.
>> OKAY.

02:26:07.755,02:26:10.452
THAT’S VERY HELPFUL, THANK
YOU.
ALL RIGHT THEN.

02:26:10.454,02:26:16.291
SO DID EVERYONE GET THAT?
I SEE A COUPLE OF CONFUSED
FACES SO I WILL TRY AND

02:26:16.293,02:26:21.103
REPEAT.
THERE’S TWO ERRORS IN THE
BYLAW.

02:26:21.105,02:26:27.073
ONE IS THAT THE FAR RIGHT
COLUMN UNDER CELL 3 IS NOT
CONSISTENT WITH WHAT WAS IN

02:26:27.075,02:26:35.347
THE REPORT THAT CPC APPROVED
THAT WAS IN THE CPC REPORT,
IT WAS UP TO 873 BUT IN THE

02:26:35.349,02:26:38.560
BYLAW AS ADVERTISED IT WAS
ONLY 800.
DID YOU SAY THERE WAS AN

02:26:38.562,02:26:42.300
ADDITION ERROR AS WELL?
>> YES.
>> IN THE FINAL BOTTOM

02:26:42.302,02:26:56.317
RIGHT-HAND CORNER, AND THAT
REALLY SHOULD READ WHAT YOU
SEE THERE, 1557 TO 2342

02:26:56.319,02:27:00.524
RATHER THAN 2392.
OKAY.
SO RIGHT NOW, WHAT WILL BE

02:27:00.526,02:27:04.261
ASKED TO VOTE ON TODAY IS
THAT, WHAT YOU SEE ON THE
SCREEN RIGHT NOW.

02:27:04.263,02:27:07.130
ALDERMAN LOWE?
>> SORRY, THANK YOU.
THANK YOU.

02:27:07.132,02:27:13.765
JUST PICK UP, I HEARD MISS
AXWORTHY SAY THAT THERE
WOULD BE A REQUIREMENT FOR A

02:27:13.767,02:27:18.029
SECOND PUBLIC HEARING AFTER
SOME ADVERTISING AND THAT’S
THE PIECE — I UNDERSTAND

02:27:18.031,02:27:22.130
THIS, IT’S THE NEXT PIECE,
MISS SLOAN.
>> I THINK WHAT SHE SAID WAS

02:27:22.132,02:27:26.473
IF WE WANT TO PUT IT BACK TO
WHAT WAS IN THE CPC
RECOMMENDATION –

02:27:26.475,02:27:28.776
>> ONLY IF WE WANT TO DO
THAT?
>> CORRECT.

02:27:28.778,02:27:34.003
IF WE COULD PASS IT LIKE
THIS TODAY SO THAT — IF
THAT WAS COUNCIL’S WILL, WE

02:27:34.005,02:27:37.476
COULD PASS IT LIKE THIS
TODAY SO THE APPLICANT COULD
GET ON WITH THEIR WORK, BUT

02:27:37.478,02:27:42.274
THEN HAVE A SUBSEQUENT
PUBLIC HEARING TO CHANGE 800
TO 873.

02:27:42.276,02:27:46.202
>> OH, I SEE.
IF THE APPLICANT WANTED.
>> IT SOUNDS LIKE THE

02:27:46.204,02:27:49.373
APPLICANT DOES WANT THAT.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, JUST TO

02:27:49.375,02:27:53.187
CLARIFY, IF YOU WOULDN’T
MIND.
THE LAND USE IS UNAFFECTED

02:27:53.189,02:27:58.524
BY ANY OF THIS.
THIS IS SIMPLY AN ERROR IN
THE ASP AMENDMENT.

02:27:58.526,02:28:02.355
THE LAND USE IS UNAFFECTED.
>> OH, THAT’S A GOOD
CLARIFICATION.

02:28:02.357,02:28:06.927
THANK YOU.
ALL RIGHT.
SO WE’RE BACK TO QUESTIONS

02:28:06.929,02:28:11.036
FOR ADMINISTRATION ONLY,
PLEASE, ALDERMAN MAR, THEN
LOWE, THEN STEVENSON, THEN

02:28:11.038,02:28:14.143
ME.
>> THANK YOU.
SO I HAVE A COUPLE OF

02:28:14.145,02:28:18.603
QUESTIONS.
WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE
PUBLIC HEARING WAS ISSUES

02:28:18.605,02:28:26.176
RELATING LARGELY TO THE
INCONSISTENCY IN THEIR VIEW
OF THE PROPOSED PLAN AND THE

02:28:26.178,02:28:34.519
ARP.
AND HOW CONSISTENT IS THAT
WITH THE NEW MDP, PLAN IT

02:28:34.521,02:28:42.720
CALGARY, THAT WE’VE PASSED?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, IN REGARDS
TO THE AMENDMENTS TO THE ARP

02:28:42.722,02:28:49.229
THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH
THIS APPLICATION, THESE
AMENDMENTS ALLOW FOR

02:28:49.231,02:28:53.308
COMMUNITY-ORIENTED
COMMERCIAL SITE TO INCREASE
RESIDENTIAL DENSITIES AND

02:28:53.310,02:28:59.313
ALSO TO IDENTIFY PROPOSED
COMMERCIAL SITES WITHIN THE
BOWNESS ARP AREA.

02:28:59.315,02:29:04.364
THIS ALSO FACILITATES THE
LAND USE IN THE OUTLINED
PLAN.

02:29:04.366,02:29:11.248
CERTAINLY WITH THE USES THAT
ARE BEING INCORPORATED INTO
THE ARP AMENDMENTS, YOU’RE

02:29:11.250,02:29:16.129
GETTING A COMMUNITY TYPE OF
DEVELOPMENT.
WE HAVE MIXED USES AND ALSO

02:29:16.131,02:29:20.594
VERY LOCAL ORIENTATED
COMMERCIAL USES WHICH IS
CONSISTENT, I THINK, WITH

02:29:20.596,02:29:26.657
THE GOALS OF PLAN IT, WHEN
YOU HAVE A VERY SUSTAINABLE
COMMUNITY AND A VERY LOW-KEY

02:29:26.659,02:29:31.859
MANNER OF DENSITY AND ALSO
USE.
IT’S NOT INTENDED TO DRAW

02:29:31.861,02:29:35.566
USES BEYOND THE IMMEDIATE
COMMUNITIES.
IT’S MORE INTENDED TO BE

02:29:35.568,02:29:39.937
LOCAL ORIENTATED AND BASED
AND THAT’S ALSO THE
RATIONALE FOR THE

02:29:39.939,02:29:43.212
INTRODUCTION OF OFFICE USE
IN THIS CASE.
IT’S NOT INTENDED TO BE A

02:29:43.214,02:29:46.287
LARGE OFFICE CONSTRUCTION OR
BUILDINGS.
IT’S MORE MEANT TO BE OFFICE

02:29:46.289,02:29:52.061
USES SUCH AS DENTISTS OR
MEDICAL THAT IS INTENDED TO
DRAW THE IMMEDIATE PEOPLE IN

02:29:52.063,02:29:55.460
THE COMMUNITY IN THE AREA
AND NOT SOMETHING FROM A
WIDE DRAW.

02:29:55.462,02:30:00.503
AND THAT IS CERTAINLY, I
THINK, CONSISTENT WITH THE
GOALS OF THE MDP AND ALSO

02:30:00.505,02:30:03.870
PLAN IT IN THIS CASE.
>> THANK YOU.
NOW, WE ALSO HEARD FROM THE

02:30:03.872,02:30:07.574
COMMUNITY ISSUES RELATING TO
TRANSPORTATION AND I KNOW
THAT’S NOT YOUR EXPERTISE,

02:30:07.576,02:30:15.853
BUT I DO SEE MR. — IF YOUR
WORSHIP, IF YOU DON’T MIND,
THANK YOU.

02:30:18.354,02:30:22.589
GOOD AFTERNOON.
>> GOOD AFTERNOON.
>> SO THE COMMUNITY

02:30:22.591,02:30:29.457
ASSOCIATION DIRECTORS, WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT THE INCREASED
DENSITY AND HOW THIS WOULD

02:30:29.459,02:30:36.433
HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON
THE MOBILITY IN THAT AREA.
OBVIOUSLY, ONE OF THE KEY

02:30:36.435,02:30:40.929
COMPONENTS OF THIS IS THE
CONSTRUCTION OF THE
INTERCHANGE.

02:30:40.931,02:30:45.396
WHAT IS OUR STATUS WITH THAT
INTERCHANGE?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, AS

02:30:45.398,02:30:53.031
MENTIONED BEFORE, THAT
INTERCHANGE WAS IDENTIFIED
THROUGH THE 2009-2018 GIP

02:30:53.033,02:30:57.866
PROCESS.
WE HAVE COMPLETED THE
FUNCTIONAL PLANNING STUDY,

02:30:57.868,02:31:01.533
AND THE PRELIMINARY DESIGN
HAS ALSO BEEN COMPLETED.
>> AND IT IS FUNDED

02:31:01.535,02:31:09.309
CURRENTLY, IS IT NOT?
>> THE FUNDING FOR THAT
INTERCHANGE BEGINS IN 2012.

02:31:09.311,02:31:13.756
THE 2012 BUDGET HAS NOT YET
BEEN APPROVED BY COUNCIL.
IT WILL COME FORWARD AS PART

02:31:13.758,02:31:18.091
OF THE 2012 –
>> EVERYTHING NOW IS
CONTINGENT UPON COUNCIL

02:31:18.093,02:31:22.292
GIVING THE FUNDING OR MAKING
SURE THAT THAT FUNDING IS
AVAILABLE.

02:31:22.294,02:31:28.298
IF COUNCIL PROCEEDS WITH
THAT, WHICH I’M SUPPOSING
THAT THEY WILL, THE

02:31:28.300,02:31:31.735
INTERCHANGE COULD BE
COMPLETED BY WHEN?
>> THE INITIAL TARGET WAS AT

02:31:31.737,02:31:35.134
THE END OF 2013.
>> 2013.
SO YEAR-AND-A-HALF.

02:31:35.136,02:31:41.503
OKAY.
AND DOES THIS — YOU’RE
RIGHT, I GUESS IT IS TWO

02:31:41.505,02:31:45.712
YEARS.
DOES THAT ALLOW US THE
ABILITY TO ACHIEVE WHAT’S

02:31:45.714,02:31:53.494
BEING PLANNED IN THIS
DEVELOPMENT?
WOULD THAT HAVE THE SATISFY

02:31:53.496,02:31:56.963
RE MOBILITY?
BECAUSE I’VE HEARD FROM THE
COMMUNITY THAT THE

02:31:56.965,02:32:01.366
FUNCTIONAL STUDY ON THIS WAS
TEN YEARS OLD AND IT DIDN’T
ACCOUNT FOR THE COMMERCIAL

02:32:01.368,02:32:04.672
AND IT DIDN’T ACCOUNT FOR
THE DEVELOPMENT ACROSS THE
OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD.

02:32:04.674,02:32:09.246
CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, ABSOLUTELY.
JUST A COUPLE OF BACKGROUND.

02:32:09.248,02:32:12.680
JUST TO PROVIDE A BIT MORE
INFORMATION ON THE TIMING OF
THE FUNCTIONAL PLANNING

02:32:12.682,02:32:16.047
STUDY.
THE FUNCTIONAL PLANNING
STUDY CURRENTLY APPROVED WAS

02:32:16.049,02:32:20.250
INITIATED IN 2007 AND
APPROVED BY LPT IN 2008.
>> OKAY.

02:32:20.252,02:32:25.428
SO IT’S NOT TEN YEARS OLD.
>> IT’S A COUPLE YEARS OLD.
AND THAT FUNCTIONAL PLANNING

02:32:25.430,02:32:30.197
STUDY HAS ALSO BEEN, I GUESS,
AS WE’VE MOVED FORWARD TO
PRELIMINARY DESIGN, WE’VE

02:32:30.199,02:32:37.936
ALSO TAKEN THE LATEST
TRAFFIC INFORMATION AS PART
OF THAT PRELIMINARY DESIGN.

02:32:37.938,02:32:42.912
>> SORRY, PARDON ME, THAT
ALSO INCLUDED FORECASTING
FOR THE DEVELOPMENT ACROSS

02:32:42.914,02:32:50.619
THE ROAD, DID IT NOT?
>> THE TRAFFIC VOLUMES USED
IN BOTH THE TIA AS WELL AS

02:32:50.621,02:32:58.132
THE PRELIMINARY DESIGN WERE
PREDICATED ON WHAT YOU SEE
HERE PROPOSED FOR GREENBRIAR

02:32:58.134,02:33:05.171
AS WELL AS WHAT THE CURRENT
COUNCIL APPROVED CANADA
OLYMPIC PARK ASP PROVIDES

02:33:05.173,02:33:07.140
FOR.
>> OKAY.
AND HOW MANY VEHICLES PER

02:33:07.142,02:33:10.641
DAY ARE YOU PROJECTING
THERE?
DO YOU KNOW THAT OFF THE TOP

02:33:10.643,02:33:16.381
OF YOUR HEAD?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, FOR WHAT –
AT WHAT POINT ON THE ROADWAY,

02:33:16.383,02:33:22.513
I GUESS?
>> SORRY, AT PROJECT
COMPLETION AND BUILD OUT.

02:33:22.515,02:33:27.348
THE INTERCHANGE, I’M SORRY.
RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE
COMMUNITY, BECAUSE I’M

02:33:27.350,02:33:33.523
TRYING TO COMPARE IT TO
VALLEY RIDGE WHICH IS A
COMMUNITY THAT IS SIMILAR IN

02:33:33.525,02:33:39.155
NATURE TO THIS BEING A ON
ONE-ACCESS.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I DON’T

02:33:39.157,02:33:43.165
HAVE THE NUMBERS RIGHT OFF
HAND BUT I CAN DEFINITELY
LOOK THOSE UP AND GET BACK

02:33:43.167,02:33:47.664
TO YOU.
>> I JUST WANT TO KNOW WITH
SOME DEGREE OF CERTAINTY

02:33:47.666,02:33:55.369
FROM YOUR EXPERTISE AS TO
WHETHER OR NOT THIS ONE
INTERCHANGE IS SATISFACTORY

02:33:55.371,02:33:59.885
TO BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THAT
MOBILITY.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THROUGH THE

02:33:59.887,02:34:07.651
REVIEW OF THE TIA FOR
GREENBRIAR STAGE TWO, WE
HAVE IDENTIFIED THE

02:34:07.653,02:34:12.653
APPROXIMATELY 80% OF THE
BUILD OUT OF GREENBRIAR CAN
BE ACCOMMODATED WITH THE

02:34:12.655,02:34:17.391
INITIAL BUILD OF BEAUFORT
TRANSCANADA WHICH IS
CURRENTLY SLATED TO BE A

02:34:17.393,02:34:22.293
SIX-LANE STRUCTURE ACROSS
TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY.
THERE WOULD BE A SUBSEQUENT

02:34:22.295,02:34:27.533
WIDENING OF THAT STRUCTURE
TO EIGHT LANES THAT WOULD
ACCOMMODATE THE REMAINING

02:34:27.535,02:34:33.026
20% OF BUILD OUT WITHIN THE
GREENBRIAR AREA.
>> NOW, THE OTHER THING THAT

02:34:33.028,02:34:42.477
WE HEARD FROM THE OPPONENTS
OF THE DEVELOPMENT WAS THE
TRAFFIC ON 83rd.

02:34:42.479,02:34:50.364
CAN YOU RUN ME THROUGH THAT?
WHAT IS IT — IT’S NOT
OBVIOUSLY A MAJOR.

02:34:50.366,02:34:54.900
WHAT IS THAT CONSIDERED?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE 83rd
STREET IS CURRENTLY

02:34:54.902,02:34:57.001
CLASSIFIED AS AN ARTERIAL
STREET.
>> OKAY.

02:34:57.003,02:35:03.828
>> IT’S CURRENTLY TWO LANES.
AND AS PART OF THE ULTIMATE
PLAN FOR 83rd STREET COULD

02:35:03.830,02:35:08.172
STILL CONTINUE TO BE TWO
LANES.
THERE IS RIGHT-OF-WAY

02:35:08.174,02:35:13.147
PLANNED THAT WOULD
ACCOMMODATE A FOUR-LANE
ARTERIAL, IF SO DESIRED.

02:35:13.149,02:35:21.025
THE TRAFFIC VOLUMES, I CAN
FIND MY PAGE HERE, THE
TRAFFIC VOLUMES CURRENTLY ON

02:35:21.027,02:35:31.434
83rd STREET ARE
APPROXIMATELY JUST UNDER
6,000 VEHICLES PER DAY.

02:35:31.436,02:35:40.032
THE ANTICIPATED BUILD OUT OF
GREENBRIAR STAGE TWO TO THE
80% AS ALLOWED WITH THE

02:35:40.034,02:35:43.409
CURRENTLY-APPROVED
INTERCHANGE WOULD BRING IT
TO JUST ABOVE 9,000 VEHICLES

02:35:43.411,02:35:50.192
A DAY.
THAT IS STILL WELL BELOW A
COLLECTOR ROAD VOLUME.

02:35:50.194,02:35:55.327
SO THE TRANSPORTATION
DEPARTMENT DOES NOT BELIEVE
THERE IS A CAPACITY ISSUE

02:35:55.329,02:36:00.872
ALONG 83rd STREET.
WE DO RECOGNIZE THE
SENSITIVITY OF 83rd STREET

02:36:00.874,02:36:05.175
TO THE EXISTING BOWNESS
COMMUNITY, AND WANT TO
ENSURE THAT THAT ROADWAY

02:36:05.177,02:36:10.271
CONTINUES TO FUNCTION FOR
ALL OTHER MODES SUCH AS THE
TRANSIT CONNECTION DOWN TO

02:36:10.273,02:36:14.941
PRIMARY TRANSIT ON BOWNESS
ROAD, AS WELL AS THE WALK
CYCLE ACTIVE MODES.

02:36:14.943,02:36:20.318
>> OKAY.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
NOW, I CAN’T HELP BUT NOTICE

02:36:20.320,02:36:26.852
THE REASONABLY-CLOSE
PROXIMITY TO STONY.
IN THE GREATER SCHEME OF

02:36:26.854,02:36:31.265
THINGS.
NOT ON THIS MAP, OBVIOUSLY,
BUT IT IS FAIRLY WELL

02:36:31.267,02:36:35.583
LOCATED TO STONY.
IS THERE ANY WAY AT ALL THAT
WE WOULD BE ABLE CREATE SOME

02:36:35.585,02:36:40.120
SORT OF LINK-UP THERE TO
PROVIDE ANOTHER ACCESS POINT
IN AND OUT OF THIS

02:36:40.122,02:36:44.647
COMMUNITY?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, AS FOR
VEHICULAR CONNECTION TO

02:36:44.649,02:36:50.052
EITHER THE TRANSCANADA
HIGHWAY OR CONNECTION TO
STONY TRAIL, NO, IT WOULD

02:36:50.054,02:36:57.925
NOT MEET STANDARDS IN ORDER
TO ACHIEVE APPROPRIATE SAFE
SPACING AND OPERATION OF

02:36:57.927,02:37:00.929
THOSE IMPORTANT SKELETAL
ROADWAYS.
>> OKAY.

02:37:00.931,02:37:06.404
>> HOWEVER, YOUR WORSHIP,
GIVEN THAT, WE ARE, AS PART
OF MOVING FORWARD ON THE

02:37:06.406,02:37:10.369
GREENBRIAR APPLICATIONS,
REQUESTING THAT THE
APPLICANT INVESTIGATE

02:37:10.371,02:37:17.175
OPPORTUNITIES FOR CROSSING
OF THOSE SKELETAL ROADS WITH
POTENTIALLY TRANSIT AND/OR

02:37:17.177,02:37:22.919
ACTIVE MODES CONNECTIONS TO
THE WEST AND TO THE SOUTH.
>> OKAY.

02:37:22.921,02:37:29.519
SO WE’RE BASICALLY A
ONE-ACCESS POINT BUT I KNOW,
UNDER THE MDP, — SORRY, MGA,

02:37:29.521,02:37:33.357
WE ARE ACTUALLY REQUIRED TO
PROVIDE AN EMERGENCY ACCESS.
WHERE IS THAT LOCATED?

02:37:33.359,02:37:37.560
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE
EMERGENCY ACCESS TO
GREENBRIAR IS SHOWN AS THAT

02:37:37.562,02:37:41.436
LIGHT BLUE LINE CONNECTING
FROM 83rd STREET UP TO THE
EXISTING GREENWOOD VILLAGE.

02:37:41.438,02:37:44.276
THAT IS CURRENTLY THEIR
PUBLIC ACCESS.
>> YES.

02:37:44.278,02:37:49.550
>> UPON COMPLETION OF THE
BEAUFORT ROAD IMPROVEMENTS,
THE DOUBLE RED LINE ALONG

02:37:49.552,02:37:54.729
THE SOUTH SIDE OF GREENBRIAR,
THAT ACCESS WOULD BE
COMMITTED INTO A SECONDARY

02:37:54.731,02:37:57.422
EMERGENCY ACCESS ONLY.
>> OKAY.
THOSE ARE MY QUESTIONS FOR

02:37:57.424,02:38:03.720
NOW.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN MAR.

02:38:03.722,02:38:14.429
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION,
ALDERMAN LOWE.
>> THANK YOU, MR. VANDER

02:38:14.431,02:38:18.073
POTEN.
SORRY TO MAKE YOU GO BACK
AND FORTH, SIR.

02:38:18.075,02:38:23.180
SO YOU MENTIONED SEVERAL OF
MY TRANSPORTATION QUESTIONS.
THE ONE OUTSTANDING IS THE

02:38:23.182,02:38:28.358
EXPANSION OF THE BRIDGE
ACROSS TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY
FROM SIX TO EIGHT LANES.

02:38:28.360,02:38:34.452
IS THAT ALSO, IN PART, TO
ACCOMMODATE THE PROPOSED
DEVELOPMENT ON THE SOUTH

02:38:34.454,02:38:39.164
SIDE OF TRANSCANADA, ON
CANADA OLYMPIC PARK?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, AS PART OF

02:38:39.166,02:38:43.936
THE FUNCTIONAL PLAN FOR THAT
INTERCHANGE, IT WAS
RECOGNIZED THAT THERE WOULD

02:38:43.938,02:38:50.818
BE KIND OF A STAGING OF
DEVELOPMENT ON BOTH SIDES OF
THE TRANSCANADA, AND THAT

02:38:50.820,02:38:56.450
THERE WOULD NOT BE THE NEED
TO INITIALLY BUILD OUT TO
THE FULL CROSS-SECTION.

02:38:56.452,02:39:03.160
THE BUILD-OUT ON THE CANADA
OLYMPIC PARK SIDE, I WOULD
SUGGEST TO YOU, THEN AT THE

02:39:03.162,02:39:09.944
CURRENT ASP ENVISIONED
DEVELOPMENT INTENSITY WOULD
ALSO REQUIRE THE EIGHT-LANE

02:39:09.946,02:39:12.815
STRUCTURE.
THERE WOULD BE A DEVELOPMENT
CAP ON THE SOUTHLAND, TOO,

02:39:12.817,02:39:17.745
UNTIL THAT EIGHT-LANE
STRUCTURE WAS CONSTRUCTED.
>> I GUESS I’LL JUST TALK

02:39:17.747,02:39:23.114
ABOUT THE — THERE’S A
SIGNIFICANT COMMERCIAL
DEVELOPMENT BEING PROPOSED,

02:39:23.116,02:39:28.590
A RETAIL DEVELOPMENT, BEING
PROPOSED ON THE CANADA
OLYMPIC LANDS ON THE SOUTH

02:39:28.592,02:39:31.053
SIDE.
IS THAT THE DEVELOPMENT
YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT?

02:39:31.055,02:39:36.659
>> YOUR WORSHIP, IT WOULD BE
NOT ONLY THAT COMMERCIAL
OFFICE COMPONENT BUT ALSO

02:39:36.661,02:39:42.393
THE SPORTING FACILITIES.
>> IT’S THE WHOLE PACKAGE
THAT WE’RE LOOKING AT THERE?

02:39:42.395,02:39:47.029
>> THAT IS CORRECT, YES.
>> OKAY, THANK YOU VERY
MUCH.

02:39:47.031,02:39:53.659
YOU’VE COVERED OFF THE ISSUE
OF POSSIBLE FUTURE ACCESSES
AND THE POSSIBILITY OF

02:39:53.661,02:40:00.463
ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION AND
LRT LINKS ACROSS.
HAVE WE ENTERED INTO ANY

02:40:00.465,02:40:09.896
DISCUSSION WITH TRANSIT NOW?
IF IN FACT THE DEVELOPMENT
OF THE CANADA OLYMPIC PARK

02:40:09.898,02:40:14.697
LANDS GOES AHEAD, IT’S MY
UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE
WILL BE A NEED FOR A TRANSIT

02:40:14.699,02:40:19.536
HUB IN THERE.
HAVE WE HAD DISCUSSIONS WITH
TRANSIT ABOUT MOVING THAT

02:40:19.538,02:40:26.422
PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION LINK
OR GETTING IT ATTACHED OR
CONNECTED TO GREENBRIAR?

02:40:26.424,02:40:31.796
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I GUESS
RECOGNIZING THAT THE
APPLICATION ISN’T ON THE

02:40:31.798,02:40:35.536
TABLE TODAY, THERE
DEFINITELY HAVE BEEN
DISCUSSIONS ON CONNECTIVITY

02:40:35.538,02:40:38.871
FOR TRANSIT.
WE FEEL AT THIS TIME THAT
THE PRIMARY TRANSIT ROUTE

02:40:38.873,02:40:43.438
SHOULD REMAIN ON BOWNESS
ROAD AND THAT ANY OF THE
DEVELOPMENT THAT WE’RE

02:40:43.440,02:40:49.534
SEEING BEFORE US TODAY WOULD
PROVIDE CONNECTIVITY DOWN TO
THE PRIMARY TRANSIT ROUTE.

02:40:49.536,02:40:55.407
IT ALSO IS WITHIN A
COMFORTABLE WALKING DISTANCE,
NOT QUITE A 600 METRE RADIUS,

02:40:55.409,02:40:59.152
BUT IT’S DEFINITELY WITHIN A
WALKING DISTANCE OF THE
PRIMARY TRANSIT ROUTE DOWN

02:40:59.154,02:41:04.120
ON BOWNESS ROAD.
>> OKAY.
BUT — EXCUSE ME.

02:41:04.122,02:41:09.160
I GUESS SORT OF THE
FOLLOW-THROUGH IS WE DO HAVE
AN OPPORTUNITY, DEPENDING ON

02:41:09.162,02:41:14.460
WHAT HAPPENS, ON THE SOUTH
SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY THERE TO
REVISIT THE WHOLE PRIMARY

02:41:14.462,02:41:16.734
TRANSPORTATION STRUCTURE IN
THERE.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, AND I GUESS

02:41:16.736,02:41:21.570
TO ADD TO THAT, WE WOULD
ALSO, RECOGNIZING THE
CAPACITY CONSTRAINTS ON THE

02:41:21.572,02:41:27.615
ROADWAY NETWORK AT
TRANSCANADA BEAUFORT, THAT’S
ALSO WHY WE’RE PURSUING THE

02:41:27.617,02:41:30.423
ADDITIONAL TRANSIT
CONNECTIONS, THAT IF THERE
WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO

02:41:30.425,02:41:34.696
PROVIDE SOME TRANSIT
PRIORITY BY A SEPARATE
STRUCTURE OR SEPARATE

02:41:34.698,02:41:38.699
CONNECTION TO GET THEM OUT
OF THE TYPICAL VEHICLE MIX,
WE FEEL THAT WOULD BE A

02:41:38.701,02:41:41.794
BENEFIT FOR TRANSIT
OPERATIONS AS WELL FOR THIS
WHOLE AREA.

02:41:41.796,02:41:45.764
>> I TAKE IT THE SAME
COMMENTS APPLY FOR ACROSS
STONY TRAIL INTO VALLEY

02:41:45.766,02:41:50.764
RIDGE.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, YES.
>> OKAY.

02:41:50.766,02:41:56.631
SO WE’VE GOT LOTS OF
OPPORTUNITY IN THERE TO
CONSOLIDATE OUR TRANSIT

02:41:56.633,02:42:02.844
SYSTEM AND MAKE IT TO THE
ADVANTAGE OF THE RESIDENTS
IN HERE AND IN VALLEY RIDGE,

02:42:02.846,02:42:11.562
AND I SUPPOSE, BY EXTENSION,
UP TO — SO ON.
>> YES.

02:42:11.564,02:42:15.525
>> THANK YOU.
MY LAST QUESTION, AND I’M
NOT SURE WHO I’LL DIRECT

02:42:15.527,02:42:21.528
THIS TO, PUT IF YOU GO TO
THE CPC REPORT, THERE WAS A
MOTION ARISING PUT BY A

02:42:21.530,02:42:25.761
MR. STURGESS ASKING OR
DIRECTING ADMINISTRATION TO
REQUEST THAT THE APPLICANT

02:42:25.763,02:42:30.663
UNDERTAKE A VISIONARY MASTER
PLAN OF THE OVERALL SITE IN
CONJUNCTION WITH AND TO FORM

02:42:30.665,02:42:33.703
PART OF THE FIRST
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT
APPLICATION TO COME BACK TO

02:42:33.705,02:42:37.766
CPC.
DO YOU KNOW, IS THAT PROJECT
BEEN INITIATED, STARTED,

02:42:37.768,02:42:41.585
WHERE ARE WE WITH RESPECT TO
THAT?
BECAUSE I THINK THAT SPEAKS

02:42:41.587,02:42:46.425
TO PART OF WHAT WE HEARD
FROM THOSE OBJECTING TO IT
TODAY, THERE WAS NO GLOBAL

02:42:46.427,02:42:48.296
PICTURE.
>> TO MY KNOWLEDGE, YOUR
WORSHIP, WE HAVE NOT

02:42:48.298,02:42:52.064
RECEIVED A FORMAL
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT
APPLICATION THAT WOULD

02:42:52.066,02:42:57.826
REQUIRE THE DIRECTIVE OF CPC
INITIATED BY MR. STURGESS,
NOT AT THIS TIME, NO.

02:42:57.828,02:43:03.090
>> OKAY.
BUT ONCE WE GET THAT, WE
WOULD INITIATE THIS PLAN?

02:43:03.092,02:43:08.898
>> YES, I THINK IT WOULD
PROBABLY BE PRUDENT ON THE
AUTHORITY TO ENSURE THERE IS

02:43:08.900,02:43:12.666
SOMETHING, A WARNING ON THE
ADDRESS OF THE PROPERTY TO
ENSURE THE DIRECTOR OF CPC

02:43:12.668,02:43:18.100
IS INITIATING THIS.
>> OKAY.
SO IN FACT, THE ISSUE OF THE

02:43:18.102,02:43:24.865
GLOBAL PLAN IS IN HAND.
>> CERTAINLY BASED ON THE –
>> DIRECTION OF CPC?

02:43:24.867,02:43:29.905
>> YES.
>> OKAY.
MY LAST — I’M SORRY,

02:43:29.907,02:43:38.283
MR. VANDER POTEN, THANK YOU.
THERE WAS A SUGGESTION THAT
ANY DELAY BY THE APPLICANT,

02:43:38.285,02:43:42.895
THAT ANY DELAY COULD
TRANSLATE OR MAY TRANSLATE
INTO INCREASED COSTS FOR THE

02:43:42.897,02:43:48.292
CITY OF CALGARY.
ARE YOU ABLE TO COMMENT ON
THAT?

02:43:48.294,02:43:51.932
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I’M NOT
SURE WHAT THOSE INCREASED
COSTS WOULD BE.

02:43:51.934,02:43:58.272
I’M NOT AN EXPERT IN THAT
AREA.
>> DO WE HAVE ANYBODY — IT

02:43:58.274,02:44:04.110
SEEMED LOGICAL TO ME, I MEAN,
IT MADE SENSE THAT IF
THEY’RE DELAYED IN THEIR

02:44:04.112,02:44:12.906
LAND, PART AND PARCEL THAT
THE DEVELOPMENT ALONG 83rd
STREET AND BEAUFORT ROAD AND

02:44:12.908,02:44:20.710
FILL WORK THAT HAD TO BE
DONE THERE, THE TWO PARTIES,
THE CITY AND THE DEVELOPER,

02:44:20.712,02:44:26.254
SEEM TO BE ADVANCING THEIR
ENGINEERING LOCK STEP IN
THIS.

02:44:26.256,02:44:29.458
>> YOUR WORSHIP, MY
UNDERSTANDING IS THE CITY
HAS BEEN PROCEEDING WITH

02:44:29.460,02:44:34.302
LAND ACQUISITION REQUIRED
FOR THE BEAUFORT TRANSCANADA
INTERCHANGE DOES REQUIRE A

02:44:34.304,02:44:40.072
LOT OF FILL, BECAUSE THE
CURRENT INTERSECTION SITS
WELL BELOW WHAT THE ULTIMATE

02:44:40.074,02:44:43.178
INTERSECTION WOULD
ULTIMATELY BE, YOU KNOW, IN
COORDINATION WITH THE TIMING

02:44:43.180,02:44:46.876
OF THE DEVELOPERS
CONSTRUCTION WOULD BE
BENEFICIAL FOR BOTH PARTIES.

02:44:46.878,02:44:55.755
>> BUT ALSO WOULD NOT BE THE
CONSTRUCT OF THE INTERCHANGE
AT BEAUFORT AND TRANSCANADA,

02:44:55.757,02:44:58.794
YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE THE
APPROACHES ORGANIZED TO
BUILD THE BRIDGES.

02:44:58.796,02:45:02.700
THAT’S WHAT I’M SAYING.
SO THERE IS A LINKAGE THERE.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, YES.

02:45:02.702,02:45:09.069
>> BUT NOBODY’S QUANTITIFIED
WHAT THE IMPACT OF A TWO OR
THREE OR FIVE OR SIX-MONTH

02:45:09.071,02:45:15.077
DELAY MIGHT BE?
>> SORRY, I’M UNFORTUNATELY
NOT…

02:45:15.079,02:45:19.685
>> CAN ANYBODY QUANTIFY THAT
FOR ME?
CAN ANYBODY GIVE ME AN

02:45:19.687,02:45:24.782
OPINION ON THAT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP –
>> I’M ALWAYS HAPPY TO GIVE

02:45:24.784,02:45:28.459
OPINIONS, ALDERMAN LOWE, BUT
IT MAY NOT BE BASED ON
ANYTHING.

02:45:28.461,02:45:35.039
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> MR. LOGAN IS OUT OF TOWN,
HE’S AWAY, AND ONE OF THE

02:45:35.041,02:45:41.639
OTHER CITY ENGINEERS WORKING
ON THE COP APPLICATION, AND
NOT HAVING CONCLUDED IT YET,

02:45:41.641,02:45:48.505
IS ALSO OUT OF TOWN.
SO I THINK ALDERMAN LOWE’S
INTERESTING QUESTIONS ARE IN

02:45:48.507,02:45:54.180
ADVANCE OF ANY INFORMATION
THAT COULD BE RESULTING IN
THE NEAR FUTURE, ALDERMAN

02:45:54.182,02:46:00.251
LOWE, BUT I’VE NEVER READ OR
SEEN ANYTHING THAT WOULD
ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.

02:46:00.253,02:46:04.021
>> NEITHER HAVE I, YET I
HEARD A FAIRLY DEFINITIVE
STATEMENT FROM THE

02:46:04.023,02:46:09.052
TRANSPORTATION ENGINEER FOR
THE APPLICANT, AND IT RAISES
A RED FLAG WITH RESPECT TO

02:46:09.054,02:46:13.154
CITY COSTS, YOUR WORSHIP.
HENCE THE QUESTION.
THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

02:46:13.156,02:46:16.598
>> AND IT’S A GOOD QUESTION,
ALDERMAN LOWE.
QUESTIONS TO ADMINISTRATION,

02:46:16.600,02:46:21.697
ALDERMAN STEVENSON.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
MY FIRST QUESTION IS TO MISS

02:46:21.699,02:46:27.667
SLOAN.
WHEN YOU SAID, AND MAYBE I
HEARD YOU WRONG, YOU SAID

02:46:27.669,02:46:34.218
THAT YOU WOULD HAVE NO
TROUBLE UNLESS THE NUMBERS
WENT UP BUT YET I THOUGHT I

02:46:34.220,02:46:42.076
HEARD THAT THE TOTAL UNITS
WAS 392 BEFORE AND NOW IT’S
UP TO 24 SOMETHING, 2392 TO

02:46:42.078,02:46:45.554
24, DOESN’T THAT CREATE A
PROBLEM?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE NUMBERS

02:46:45.556,02:46:51.752
IN THE CHART AND I BELIEVE
MISS AXWORTHY IS GETTING A
FINAL CHART PREPARED SO THAT

02:46:51.754,02:46:58.325
YOU CAN SEE ALL THE NUMBERS,
ESSENTIALLY ALL THE NUMBERS
ARE GOING DOWN, WITH THE

02:46:58.327,02:47:02.827
EXCEPTION OF ONE NUMBER ON
THE CPC REPORT, IT WAS
ACTUALLY HIGHER, BUT THEY’RE

02:47:02.829,02:47:05.732
NOT PROPOSING COUNCIL AMEND
THAT.
SO THAT WOULD BE CAPPED AT

02:47:05.734,02:47:11.679
THE 800 INSTEAD OF 873.
AND THEN THE BOTTOM — THE
VERY, VERY BOTTOM BOX WOULD

02:47:11.681,02:47:17.058
CHANGE ONLY BECAUSE OF
ADDITION.
IT’S JUST MATHEMATICAL.

02:47:17.060,02:47:20.562
>> THAT’S NOT A CONCERN OF
YOURS?
>> NO, I’M FINE WITH THAT.

02:47:20.564,02:47:28.708
>> MR. VANDER POOTEN, I WANT
TO GO FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD
THAT ALDERMAN LOWE WAS GOING

02:47:28.710,02:47:33.035
WITH REGARD TO THE
CONSTRUCTION OF THE
INTERCHANGE.

02:47:33.037,02:47:41.381
IS THERE QUITE A DIFFERENCE
IN ELEVATION THAT FILL WOULD
BE TAKEN FROM THE

02:47:41.383,02:47:46.651
DEVELOPMENT TO HELP WITH THE
ROADS AROUND THE INTERCHANGE,
IS THAT WHAT THEY WERE

02:47:46.653,02:47:52.693
TALKING ABOUT AS FAR AS IS
THERE A LOT OF EXTRA FILL
NECESSARY THERE AND IS THAT

02:47:52.695,02:47:56.933
COMING FROM THE DEVELOPMENT
THEN?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE FIRST

02:47:56.935,02:48:00.839
QUESTION, IS THERE EXTRA
FILL, ABSOLUTELY, YES.
WHERE THAT FILL IS COMING

02:48:00.841,02:48:08.510
FROM, I’M NOT ENTIRELY SURE.
WE HAVEN’T GOT THAT LEVEL OF
DETAIL YET IN THE DESIGN.

02:48:08.512,02:48:12.086
>> I THOUGHT THAT’S WHAT
THEY WERE GETTING AT WHEN
THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THE

02:48:12.088,02:48:15.283
TIMING THEM TOGETHER IN
ORDER TO BUILD THE
INTERCHANGE BUT MAYBE I GOT

02:48:15.285,02:48:21.751
THAT WRONG.
SO I JUST WANTED TO GET A
LITTLE MORE CLARITY ON THE

02:48:21.753,02:48:26.747
INTERCHANGE ITSELF.
THE INTERCHANGE IS BEING
BUILT TO SUCH A STANDARD

02:48:26.749,02:48:32.118
THAT REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE
DEVELOP ON THE SOUTH SIDE OR
ON THE NORTH SIDE, WITHIN

02:48:32.120,02:48:40.575
REASON, AND THE BIG EVENTS
GOING ON AT COP, WHICH WE
KNOW SOME HUGE TRAFFIC

02:48:40.577,02:48:48.577
SITUATIONS HAPPEN THERE
SOMETIMES, ARE YOU SAYING
THAT THE CAPACITY OF THE

02:48:48.579,02:48:52.119
INTERCHANGE BUILT AT
BEAUFORT WILL BE BUILT TO
HANDLE ALL THAT?

02:48:52.121,02:48:56.616
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE TRAFFIC
VOLUMES USED FOR THE DESIGN
OF THAT INTERCHANGE WERE

02:48:56.618,02:49:04.489
BASED ON THE FULL BUILD OUT
OF GREENBRIAR AND FILL BUILD
OUT OF CANADA OLYMPIC PARK

02:49:04.491,02:49:11.394
AS CURRENTLY APPROVED IN
THEIR ASP.
EVENT TRAFFIC DEFINITELY IS

02:49:11.396,02:49:18.530
A PEAK, IT OCCURS NOT DURING
YOUR TYPICAL A.M./P.M. PEAK
AND WE’RE QUITE CONFIDENT

02:49:18.532,02:49:24.126
THE DESIGN PUT FORWARD WILL
SUFFICIENTLY ACCOMMODATE
THAT DEMAND.

02:49:24.128,02:49:28.500
>> CAN I GET A LITTLE MORE
CLARITY WHEN YOU SAY WHAT’S
CURRENTLY APPROVED ON THE

02:49:28.502,02:49:32.404
ASP ON THE SOUTH SIDE, DOES
THAT MEAN THAT ALL OF THE
PROPOSED COMMERCIAL

02:49:32.406,02:49:37.879
DEVELOPMENT, HOTEL,
EVERYTHING THAT’S BEING
LOOKED AT ON THE SOUTH SIDE

02:49:37.881,02:49:43.245
OF THE HIGHWAY 1, ALL OF
THAT IS A PART OF THAT
CURRENTLY APPROVED PART OF

02:49:43.247,02:49:47.075
THE ASP, IS THAT WHAT YOU
MEAN?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I’M NOT

02:49:47.077,02:49:52.586
AWARE OF ALL THE DETAILS.
WHAT I AM AWARE OF, THAT
THERE WOULD BE AN ASP

02:49:52.588,02:49:57.195
AMENDMENT REQUIRED FOR THE
CURRENT PROPOSAL FOR THE
LAND USE AMENDMENT FOR COP.

02:49:57.197,02:50:01.132
>> OKAY.
BUT THAT EXTRA TRAFFIC,
THOUGH, YOU’RE NOT

02:50:01.134,02:50:06.965
ANTICIPATING THAT WOULD
FORCE THE INTERCHANGE NOT TO
BE ABLE TO HANDLE WHAT WE

02:50:06.967,02:50:10.337
NEED THERE?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THAT FILE,
AGAIN, IS CURRENTLY UNDER

02:50:10.339,02:50:16.879
REVIEW.
AND NOT INCLUDED IN THIS
ANALYSIS.

02:50:16.881,02:50:21.555
>> SO YOU’RE NOT ABLE TO SAY
FOR SURE THAT WHAT’S
PROPOSED, BUT OF COURSE THE

02:50:21.557,02:50:25.594
FINAL DESIGN IS NOT MADE OF
THAT INTERCHANGE YET, IS IT?
>> NO, YOUR WORSHIP, THERE’S

02:50:25.596,02:50:30.488
AN OPPORTUNITY TO TWEAK THE
INTERCHANGE DESIGN AT
DETAILED DESIGN STAGE.

02:50:30.490,02:50:34.059
>> THANK YOU.
THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN

02:50:34.061,02:50:39.167
STEVENSON.
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION,
ALDERMAN CARRA?

02:50:39.169,02:50:46.108
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
I GUESS TWO QUESTIONS,
NUMBER ONE IS WHAT IS THE

02:50:46.110,02:50:55.320
FIRE DEPARTMENT’S POSITION
ON THIS?
>> OFFHAND, YOUR WORSHIP,

02:50:55.322,02:51:00.263
I’M GOING TO ASSUME THERE
WAS A CIRCULATION DONE TO
FIRE AT THE TIME OF THE LAND

02:51:00.265,02:51:05.596
USE APPLICATION.
I’M NOT SPECIFICALLY SURE OF
THEIR COMMENTS, IF THEY’RE

02:51:05.598,02:51:09.671
– I DON’T BELIEVE THEY WERE
NOTED IN THE ACTUAL REPORT.
SO I CAN’T GIVE YOU A

02:51:09.673,02:51:15.141
DEFINITIVE ANSWER ON THAT.
OR IF I COULD, THIS
CERTAINLY WAS CIRCULATED TO

02:51:15.143,02:51:20.383
THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, SO
CLEARLY HAD THERE BEEN AN
ISSUE, THEY’RE VERY VIGILANT

02:51:20.385,02:51:29.158
ON ISSUES LIKE ACCESS, SO
THEY DID NOT HAVE AN
OBJECTION.

02:51:29.160,02:51:35.095
>> I’M VERY SURPRISED TO
HEAR THAT BECAUSE I SHARE
THIS SORT OF VISCERAL

02:51:35.097,02:51:40.408
CONCERN ABOUT ALL OF THIS
DENSITY BEING PROPOSED WITH
A ONE WAY IN, ONE WAY OUT

02:51:40.410,02:51:44.783
AND THEN COLLIDING WITH
ANOTHER MASSIVE AMOUNT OF
DENSITY AND USE ON THE OTHER

02:51:44.785,02:51:49.226
SIDE OF THE TRANSCANADA,
WHICH ALSO ONLY HAS A ONE
WAY IN, ONE WAY OUT.

02:51:49.228,02:51:55.265
IT SOAMES LIKE WE’VE BEEN
DOWN THIS ROOM — SEEMS LIKE
WE’VE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD

02:51:55.267,02:51:59.271
MANY TIMES BEFORE.
I’VE GOT A QUESTION FOR
TRANSPORTATION.

02:51:59.273,02:52:03.739
PUN INTENDED.
WE HAD A LIVELY DEBATE IN MY
OFFICE JUST THE OTHER DAY

02:52:03.741,02:52:08.175
REGARDING A COMPLETELY
DIFFERENT MATTER, BUT IT WAS
REALLY SURROUNDING SORT OF

02:52:08.177,02:52:15.816
THE TRANSPORTATION PYRAMID
AND THE CPT WHICH PUTS
PEDESTRIANS FIRST, TRANSIT

02:52:15.818,02:52:20.650
AND CYCLING NEXT, COMMERCIAL
VEHICULAR ACCESS AND THEN AT
THE VERY BOTTOM, THE PRIVATE

02:52:20.652,02:52:27.549
AUTOMOBILE.
BASED ON THAT DISCUSSION,
CAN I JUST GET

02:52:27.551,02:52:30.251
TRANSPORTATION’S SORT OF
REACTION TO THIS PROPOSAL
WITH REGARDS TO ITS RESPECT

02:52:30.253,02:52:35.979
TO THE NEW PYRAMID?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE
SUSTAINABILITY TRIANGLE THAT

02:52:35.981,02:52:42.059
YOU REFER TO IN THE MDP AND
CPT IS INTENDED TO BE
APPLIED IN CONTEXT, OF

02:52:42.061,02:52:47.000
COURSE.
THE CONTEXT HERE BEING A
CONSTRAINED SITE IN A

02:52:47.002,02:52:51.739
PLANNED GREENFIELD AREA.
WHILE WE RECOGNIZE THAT
THERE DEFINITELY ARE THE

02:52:51.741,02:52:57.275
NEED TO PROVIDE THE TRANSIT
WALK CYCLE CONNECTIONS, WE
BELIEVE THAT THE DEVELOPER

02:52:57.277,02:53:01.743
IS PROPOSING THOSE
SUBSTANTIALLY.
THERE STILL IS A REQUIREMENT

02:53:01.745,02:53:08.855
TO ENSURE THE AUTOMOBILE –
SUFFICIENT AUTOMOBILE
CAPACITY IS PROVIDED AS WELL,

02:53:08.857,02:53:12.896
RECOGNIZING THE CONTEXT
ADJACENT TO AN EXISTING
ESTABLISHED NEIGHBOURHOOD.

02:53:12.898,02:53:16.763
>> WHAT’S THE MODE SHIFT
THAT WE’RE EXPECTING TO COME
OUT OF HERE?

02:53:16.765,02:53:20.972
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE
POTENTIAL FOR LONG-TERM
ARRIVAL OF LRT AND THOSE

02:53:20.974,02:53:26.806
KINDS OF THINGS.
THE POINT IS WE’RE TALKING
ABOUT PUTTING A LOT OF

02:53:26.808,02:53:31.749
PEOPLE ON A VERY CONSTRAINED
PIECE OF LAND WITH ONE WAY
OUT AND WHAT IS THE MODE

02:53:31.751,02:53:36.220
SHIFT WE’RE ANTICIPATING
COMING OUT OF THERE?
>> BASED ON THE TRIP

02:53:36.222,02:53:43.797
GENERATION RATES THAT WE
USED IN OUR — IN THE
ANALYSIS, WHICH WOULD BE

02:53:43.799,02:53:48.769
STANDARD GREENFIELD
MULTI-FAMILY OFFICE AND
RETAIL RATES, YOU’RE LIKELY

02:53:48.771,02:53:56.734
TO SEE THE 10 TO 15%
ALTERNATE MODE SPLIT TO WALK,
CYCLE AND TRANSIT, THE

02:53:56.736,02:54:01.700
REMAINING 85% WOULD LIKELY
BE THE PRIVATE AUTOMOBILE.
>> SO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT

02:54:01.702,02:54:07.079
THIS AS BEING A LAMP LIGHT
OF MIXED-USE DENSITY, WHICH
IS WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO

02:54:07.081,02:54:10.721
ACHIEVE IN THE PLAN IT
PROCESS.
AND YET WHAT WE’RE TALKING

02:54:10.723,02:54:16.828
ABOUT IS 85% AUTOMOBILE
DEPENDENCY RIGHT OFF THE
BAT.

02:54:16.830,02:54:21.101
OKAY, THANK YOU.
>> IN RESPONSE TO THAT, I’D
SUGGEST THAT THE 85% SHIFT

02:54:21.103,02:54:26.009
IS VERY MUCH A PEAK HOUR IN
AND OUT.
WHAT YOU WILL LIKELY SEE

02:54:26.011,02:54:30.814
WITHIN AN AREA HERE THAT WE
OFTEN FORGET ABOUT WITHIN
THE ANALYSIS IS THE ALL-DAY

02:54:30.816,02:54:34.625
TRIPS.
PROVIDING THE MIX OF USES,
RETAIL, RESIDENTIAL, WILL

02:54:34.627,02:54:37.892
ALLOW FOR INTERNAL TRIPS TO
BE MADE BY WALKING AND
CYCLING AS THE RESIDENTS WHO

02:54:37.894,02:54:41.825
LIVE THERE CAN WALK TO GET
THEIR GROCERIES, CAN WALK TO
DO THEIR DAILY ACTIVITIES,

02:54:41.827,02:54:45.528
AND IF THEY SO CHOOSE TO
WORK THERE AS WELL, THEY CAN
WALK OR CYCLE AS WELL.

02:54:45.530,02:54:53.706
>> THAT’S PROVIDED WE HAVE A
DESIGN ON THE GROUND THAT IS
ACTUALLY CATERING TO THE

02:54:53.708,02:54:59.077
PEDESTRIAN WHICH IS, YOU
KNOW, I WILL SAY FOR MY
DEBATE AS TO WLINK THIS LAND

02:54:59.079,02:55:05.944
USE PLAN RIGHT NOW –
WHETHER I THINK THIS LAND
USE PLAN RIGHT NOW ALLOWS

02:55:05.946,02:55:09.455
THAT TO HAPPEN OR LEAVES
THAT WITHIN THE REALM OF
POSSIBILITY.

02:55:09.457,02:55:13.291
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN
CARRA.
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION,

02:55:13.293,02:55:18.329
ALDERMAN POOTMANS.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
MR. VANDER POOTEN — SORRY,

02:55:18.331,02:55:22.525
THROUGH THE CHAIR, YOU
ALLUDED AND I THINK WE’VE
TOUCHED ON THE TRAFFIC STUDY

02:55:22.527,02:55:27.588
INDIRECTLY A FEW TIMES, BUT
FOR ME, IT WOULD BE HELPFUL
TO PERHAPS CONSOLIDATE ALL

02:55:27.590,02:55:33.695
THE TRAFFIC STUDY ISSUES AS
IT RELATES TO THE OVERPASS
IN ONE CONVERSATION.

02:55:33.697,02:55:37.436
THE CURRENT STATUS OF THE
TRAFFIC STUDY, PLEASE, WHERE
ARE WE AT WITH THAT?

02:55:37.438,02:55:42.433
I UNDERSTAND THERE’S
NEGOTIATIONS WITH PROPONENTS
PERHAPS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE

02:55:42.435,02:55:45.471
HIGHWAY AT THIS POINT, WHERE
ARE WE AT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I GUESS TO

02:55:45.473,02:55:49.709
BE CLEAR, THERE ARE TWO
SEPARATE TRANSPORTATION
IMPACT STUDIES.

02:55:49.711,02:55:55.124
THE ONE TRANSPORTATION
IMPACT STUDY WAS SCOPED FOR
THE APPLICANT FOR GREENBRIAR

02:55:55.126,02:55:58.356
TOO.
THAT STUDY HAS BEEN
SUBMITTED, REVIEWED AND

02:55:58.358,02:56:04.786
ACCEPTED BY THE CITY OF
CALGARY AND BASED ON THE
INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THAT

02:56:04.788,02:56:09.664
HAS LED TO CONTRIBUTING
TOWARDS THE RECOMMENDATION
FOR APPROVAL FOR GREENBRIAR

02:56:09.666,02:56:13.795
STAGE TWO.
THERE IS ALSO A
TRANSPORTATION IMPACT

02:56:13.797,02:56:19.105
ASSESSMENT SUBMITTED AND
CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW AS
PART OF THE COPELAND USE

02:56:19.107,02:56:26.354
APPLICATION FOR WIN SPORT.
AND IT IS A SEPARATE STUDY.
AND IT ACCOUNTS FOR WHAT IS

02:56:26.356,02:56:31.851
CURRENTLY ENVISIONED BY WIN
SPORT ON THEIR LANDS.
OVER AND ABOVE WHAT

02:56:31.853,02:56:38.120
GREENBRIAR STAGE TWO IS
REQUESTING.
>> PERHAPS I’LL FOLLOW ON

02:56:38.122,02:56:42.257
ALDERMAN LOWE’S COMMENT.
ANOTHER ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
MAY BE THE FACT THAT THERE

02:56:42.259,02:56:49.698
SEEMED TO BE, I DON’T KNOW
HOW TO PUT IT, THESE TIA’S
HAVE BECOME ADVOCACY

02:56:49.700,02:56:55.172
DOCUMENTS, BUT AT WHAT STAGE
ARE THESE DOCUMENTS BECOMING
INTEGRATED, AS A LAY PERSON,

02:56:55.174,02:56:58.769
I WOULD IMAGINE THERE WOULD
BE SOME SYNTHESIS OF THESE
AT SOME POINT.

02:56:58.771,02:57:02.442
>> AND I WOULD SUGGEST, YOUR
WORSHIP, THROUGH THE PROCESS,
EVEN OF DESIGN, AS I’VE

02:57:02.444,02:57:06.814
ALLUDED TO THE PRELIMINARY
DESIGN VOLUMES WERE A
REVISED DESIGN VOLUME SET

02:57:06.816,02:57:12.456
THAN WAS USED AT THE
FUNCTIONAL, AND I’D SUGGEST
THE DETAILED DESIGN STAGE,

02:57:12.458,02:57:15.662
WE WOULD BE BASING IT OFF
THE BEST INFORMATION KNOWN
AT THE TIME.

02:57:15.664,02:57:20.199
THROUGH THE PROCESS OF
REVIEWING TRANSPORTATION
IMPACT ASSESSMENTS, WE CAN

02:57:20.201,02:57:24.472
ONLY BASE TIAs ON WHAT
INFORMATION IS KNOWN AT THE
TIME.

02:57:24.474,02:57:31.645
THERE BECOMES A SIGNIFICANT
RISK FOR SPECULATING WITHIN
A TIA DOCUMENT OF WHAT COULD

02:57:31.647,02:57:36.355
OCCUR ESPECIALLY IF IT’S NOT
COUNCIL APPROVED AND HENCE
WHY THE BACKGROUND TRAFFIC

02:57:36.357,02:57:43.560
FOR THE GREENWOOD STAGE TWO
TIA ASSUMED BUILD OUT OF THE
SURROUNDING AREAS BASED ON

02:57:43.562,02:57:50.036
COUNCIL APPROVED ASPs, NOT
BASED ON POTENTIAL
PRE-APPLICATIONS OR OTHER

02:57:50.038,02:57:56.185
CURRENT LAND USE
APPLICATIONS UNDER REVIEW
DUE TO THEIR STATUS.

02:57:56.187,02:58:03.824
>> THANK YOU.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN
POOTMANS.

02:58:03.826,02:58:09.392
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION,
ALDERMAN CHABOT.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

02:58:09.394,02:58:15.261
MR. VANDER POOTEN, I’M
LOOKING AT A TOPOGRAPHICAL
MAP HERE OF THE AREA, AND IT

02:58:15.263,02:58:21.765
APPEARS AS THOUGH THERE’S
SOME SORT OF A CONNECTIVITY
INTO STONY TRAIL, AND YET I

02:58:21.767,02:58:26.606
DON’T SEE THAT ANYWHERE ELSE
OTHER THAN ON THIS MAP.
IT LOOKS LIKE THERE’S

02:58:26.608,02:58:31.069
CURRENTLY A CONNECTION
THERE.
BUT I DON’T IMAGINE THIS IS

02:58:31.071,02:58:34.599
GOING TO BE A LONG-TERM –
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I BELIEVE
THERE IS AN ACCURATE

02:58:34.601,02:58:41.728
CONNECTION TO AN EXISTING
SERVICE ROAD THAT I BELIEVE
SERVICES THOSE LAND WEST OF

02:58:41.730,02:58:53.074
GREENBRIAR UNTIL SUCH TIME
AS AN ALTERNATE ACCESS IS
PROVIDED TO THOSE LANDS.

02:58:53.076,02:58:59.681
NO, THEY CURRENTLY DO HAVE
LEGAL ACCESS TO STONY TRAIL
WHICH WOULD BE REPLACED BY

02:58:59.683,02:59:14.307
AN ACCESS AT THE SOUTHWEST
CORNER OF THIS OUTLAND PLAN
TO BEAUFORT ROAD.

02:59:14.309,02:59:19.016
>> THE ACCESS IS THERE.
WAS THERE 40 YEARS AGO.
IT’S FOR A COUPLE OF

02:59:19.018,02:59:22.023
ACREAGES AND AS SOON AS THE
PROVINCE GETS A CHANCE TO
CLOSE IT, THEY’RE GOING TO

02:59:22.025,02:59:26.866
CLOSE AND THEY HAVE TOLD THE
ONE ACREAGE PERSON LEFT, I
THINK IT’S A RENTAL PROPERTY

02:59:26.868,02:59:31.769
NOW, THAT THEIR TIME IS SOON
GOING TO BE UP.
SO IT COMES BACK FROM 35, 40,

02:59:31.771,02:59:35.836
50 YEARS AGO, WHEN THERE WAS
AN ACCESS FOR A COUPLE OF
ACREAGES, NOT FOR THE

02:59:35.838,02:59:44.439
VOLUMES WE TALK ABOUT TODAY.
>> INTERESTING.
HAVE WE TALKED TO THE

02:59:44.441,02:59:48.612
PROVINCE SPECIFICALLY ABOUT
LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL
EMERGENCY ACCESS POINT

02:59:48.614,02:59:54.792
SOMEWHERE IN THAT AREA IN
CASE SOMETHING UNBEKNOWNST
OCCURS AT THE BEAUFORT

02:59:54.794,02:59:59.270
INTERCHANGE?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I DON’T
BELIEVE WE’VE SPECIFICALLY

02:59:59.272,03:00:03.639
SPOKEN TO THE PROVINCE ON
THAT BASED ON UNDERSTANDING
OF THEIR STANDARDS AND

03:00:03.641,03:00:09.049
PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS, IT’S
NOT LIKELY THAT THEY NOR THE
CITY WOULD SUPPORT AN

03:00:09.051,03:00:11.823
EMERGENCY ACCESS ON TO THE
SKELETAL ROAD NETWORK AT
THAT LOCATION.

03:00:11.825,03:00:17.762
THERE ARE OTHER EMERGENCY
ACCESS OPPORTUNITIES FOR
THESE LANDS.

03:00:17.764,03:00:26.757
>> OKAY.
NOW, I’M LOOKING AT THE CPC
REPORT, AND ON PAGE 3 OF THE

03:00:26.759,03:00:32.132
LOC 2010 LEDGERS, THERE ARE
SIX, IT DOES MAKE REFERENCE
TO THE FACT THAT THIS WAS

03:00:32.134,03:00:37.497
CIRCULATED TO A NUMBER OF
DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS, AND I
SEE HERE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT

03:00:37.499,03:00:41.837
HAS RESPONDED WITH NO
OBJECTIONS TO THE PROPOSED
DEVELOPMENT, BUT I ALSO

03:00:41.839,03:00:47.618
FOLLOW THIS DOWN TO THE
POLICE SERVICE AND IT SAYS
HERE NO REPLY.

03:00:47.620,03:00:53.584
I’M JUST WONDERING WHAT
PROCESS WE USE, YOU MIGHT
NOT WANT TO LEAVE JUST YET,

03:00:53.586,03:00:56.521
MR. VANDER POOTEN, I MAY
HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION OR TWO
FOR YOU.

03:00:56.523,03:01:00.124
POLICE SERVICE HAS INDICATED
NO REPLY.
WHAT PROCESS DO WE HAVE IN

03:01:00.126,03:01:06.398
PLACE WHEN WE DON’T RECEIVE
ANY RESPONSE FROM ANY
PARTICULAR DEPARTMENT, DO WE

03:01:06.400,03:01:14.272
RESUBMIT, DO WE RESOLICIT?
>> IT’S VERY COMMON ON
APPLICATIONS SUCH AS THIS,

03:01:14.274,03:01:18.682
THE LAND USE AMENDMENT IS
CIRCULATED AND IF NO
COMMENTS ARE RECEIVED BACK,

03:01:18.684,03:01:24.223
VERY OFTEN WE SEE — GET THE
COVER PAGE BACK, IT WILL SAY
NO COMMENT OR OBJECTIONS

03:01:24.225,03:01:29.789
NOTED AND UNLESS WE HAVE A
FORMAL REPLY IN WRITING, IT
IS NOTED AS NO COMMENTS OR

03:01:29.791,03:01:33.555
OBJECTIONS RECEIVED ON THE
APPLICATION.
>> SO WHAT GETS CIRCULATED

03:01:33.557,03:01:38.621
THEN TO THESE DEPARTMENTS?
THE FULL PLAN, TIA, THE
WHOLE KIT AND KABOODLE OR

03:01:38.623,03:01:42.326
WHAT?
>> WHATEVER IS AVAILABLE AT
THE TIME OF THE INITIAL

03:01:42.328,03:01:45.322
CIRCULATION OF THE
APPLICATION SO THERE WOULD
BE PLANS, IF THERE WAS A TIA

03:01:45.324,03:01:49.860
ASSOCIATED WITH THE
APPLICATION, THAT WOULD HAVE
BEEN DISTRIBUTED WITH THE

03:01:49.862,03:01:57.939
ORIGINAL CIRCULATION.
THE CIRCULATION PACKAGE IS
CONSISTENT TO THE REFEREES

03:01:57.941,03:02:04.007
ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACTUAL
CIRCULATION PROCESS.
>> NOW, I RECEIVED A COPY OF

03:02:04.009,03:02:14.721
A REPORT THAT WAS
COMMISSIONED BACK IN 2009 BY
A COMPANY CALLED URBANICS,

03:02:14.723,03:02:19.918
AND IT WAS ESSENTIALLY A
CORRIDOR STUDY LOOKING AT
THE VIABILITY OF THE

03:02:19.920,03:02:23.324
COMMERCIAL MARKET IN THIS
REGION.
I’M JUST WONDERING IF YOU

03:02:23.326,03:02:27.392
WERE FAMILIAR WITH THIS
PARTICULAR REPORT.
>> THAT PARTICULAR ONE, NO,

03:02:27.394,03:02:33.371
I AM NOT, YOUR WORSHIP, NO.
>> OKAY.
WELL, THIS REPORT CERTAINLY

03:02:33.373,03:02:41.342
DOES SUPPORT THE IDEA OF
INCREASED COMMERCIAL, AND
I’M JUST CURIOUS AS TO WHY

03:02:41.344,03:02:47.008
YOU WEREN’T GIVEN A COPY OF
THIS REPORT.
I’M CERTAINLY MORE THAN

03:02:47.010,03:02:51.251
HAPPY TO MAKE IT AVAILABLE
TO YOU.
URBANICS, HAVE YOU HEARD OF

03:02:51.253,03:02:53.850
THIS COMPANY BEFORE?
>> JAUFD HAND, YOUR WORSHIP,
NO.

03:02:53.852,03:02:59.766
>> URBANICS CONSULTANTS
LIMITED.
OKAY, ALL RIGHT.

03:02:59.768,03:03:12.301
– OFFHAND.
THIS IS ALL PREDICATED, AS
WAS INDICATED BY ALDERMAN

03:03:12.303,03:03:17.348
STEVENSON, THAT THIS IS
BASED ON THE CURRENT
INFORMATION THAT’S BEFORE US

03:03:17.350,03:03:21.282
IN REGARDS TO WHAT THE
POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IS
GOING TO BE NOT ONLY ON

03:03:21.284,03:03:26.687
THESE LAND BUT ADJACENT
LANDS BASED ON
CURRENTLY-APPROVED, BUT YOU

03:03:26.689,03:03:34.296
HAVE SEEN COPIES OF WHAT’S
BEING PROPOSED AT WIN SPORT,
I WOULD ASSUME.

03:03:34.298,03:03:41.511
DO YOU THINK THAT THAT MAY
SOMEHOW HAVE FURTHER
NEGATIVE IMPLICATIONS TO

03:03:41.513,03:03:47.448
THAT INTERCHANGE IN REGARDS
TO ITS VIABILITY IN THE
FUTURE?

03:03:47.450,03:03:54.099
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I GUESS
JUST TO BE CLEAR, THERE IS
CURRENT APPLICATIONS ON THE

03:03:54.101,03:04:02.826
COP LANDS AS WELL AS WE’RE
DEFINITELY UNDERTAKING THE
WESTVIEW ASP AT THE WEST END

03:04:02.828,03:04:08.596
OF THE CITY LIMITS.
AS WELL AS SOME
PRE-APPLICATIONS IN WORK IN

03:04:08.598,03:04:16.110
THE CALGARY WEST ASP AREA,
THAT’S WHERE THE WEDDING
CHAPEL IS.

03:04:16.112,03:04:22.323
UNTIL, I GUESS, COUNCIL
DIRECTION IS GIVEN TO CHANGE
OUR ASSUMPTIONS FOR WHAT

03:04:22.325,03:04:28.004
LAND USE WOULD OCCUR IN
THOSE AREAS, I GUESS THE
INFORMATION THAT WE’VE

03:04:28.006,03:04:33.429
INCLUDED IN THE TIA IS THE
BEST APPROVED THAT WE HAVE
TO DATE.

03:04:33.431,03:04:40.070
>> SO MAKING ASSUMPTIONS
BASED ON FUTURE POTENTIAL
DEVELOPMENTS IS PRESUPPOSING

03:04:40.072,03:04:44.398
AN OUTCOME, THEREFORE WE
CAN’T REALLY CONSIDER IT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, EVEN IN MY

03:04:44.400,03:04:48.205
LIMITED TIME, I’VE SEEN SOME
VERY INTERESTING
ASPIRATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS

03:04:48.207,03:04:52.342
THAT IF WE INCLUDED ALL
THOSE PRIOR TO COUNCIL
APPROVAL OF THOSE

03:04:52.344,03:04:56.842
DEVELOPMENTS,, I WOULD
SUGGEST IT WOULD COMPLETELY
SKEW OUR ANALYSIS.

03:04:56.844,03:04:59.741
>> OKAY.
THAT’S KIND OF WHAT I
THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO

03:04:59.743,03:05:05.938
SAY, BUT I WANTED TO HEAR IT
RIGHT FROM YOU.
AND I JUST WANTED TO GET

03:05:05.940,03:05:11.106
SOME CLARITY ON SOMETHING
BECAUSE THERE’S BEEN SOME
DISCUSSION AROUND THE TABLE

03:05:11.108,03:05:16.607
ABOUT THE SUSTAINABILITY
TRIANGLE, AND WHEN IT WAS
ORIGINALLY PROPOSED, IT WAS

03:05:16.609,03:05:23.248
WRITTEN UP AS THE HIERARCHY
AND THE WORD “HIERARCHY” WAS
TAKEN OUT OF THE MUNICIPAL

03:05:23.250,03:05:26.721
DEVELOPMENT PLAN, AND MY
UNDERSTANDING, AND OF COURSE
I STAND TO BE CORRECTED, AND

03:05:26.723,03:05:35.640
THAT’S WHY I’M ASKING YOU,
IS THAT THE SUSTAINABILITY
TRIANGLE WAS LOOKING AT THE

03:05:35.642,03:05:45.118
CURRENT BUILT FORM AND WHERE
OUR FOCUS WAS, PREDOMINANTLY
BEING THE AUTOMOBILE AND THE

03:05:45.120,03:05:51.183
SUSTAINABILITY TRIANGLE WAS
DEVELOPED PRIMARILY TO LOOK
AT INCREASED OPPORTUNITIES

03:05:51.185,03:05:59.066
AS COMPARED TO STATUS QUO IN
THE ORDER BY WAY IT’S LISTED
ON THE TRIANGLE, NOT

03:05:59.068,03:06:07.249
ELIMINATING THE NEED TO
PROVIDE THE TRANSPORTATION
INFRASTRUCTURE FOR VEHICULAR

03:06:07.251,03:06:11.354
MOVEMENT, IS THAT CORRECT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, YEAH, I
GUESS, IN ITS INITIAL NOTION,

03:06:11.356,03:06:16.293
THE SUSTAINABILITY TRIANGLE
IN ITS FINAL FORM WAS
INTENDED TO HIGHLIGHT THE

03:06:16.295,03:06:20.062
MOST SUSTAINABLE MODES OF
TRANSPORTATION.
ITS APPLICATION THROUGHOUT

03:06:20.064,03:06:27.532
THE MDP AND SPT IS VERY MUCH
CONTEXT SENSITIVE.
THEY INTRODUCED A NUMBER OF

03:06:27.534,03:06:33.704
CONCEPTS SUCH AS ACTIVITY
CENTRES AND CORRIDORS, NEW
ROADWAY TYPES WHEREBY WITHIN

03:06:33.706,03:06:40.322
THOSE DISTRICTS, IT WAS
EXPECTED THAT WE WOULD
DEFINITELY PROVIDE A HIGHER

03:06:40.324,03:06:46.294
QUALITY OF SERVICE FOR THOSE
ALTERNATE MODES SUCH AS WALK,
CYCLE, TRANSIT, AND

03:06:46.296,03:06:50.935
POTENTIALLY ALONG SOME OF
THOSE CORRIDORS, NOT EVEN
PROVIDE FOR THE AUTOMOBILE.

03:06:50.937,03:06:55.417
NOW, WE CAN’T –
>> VERY SELECT AREAS.
>> IN VERY SELECT AREAS.

03:06:55.419,03:06:59.889
THERE ARE ALSO A NUMBER OF
ROADWAYS, SUCH AS OUR
SKELETAL ROAD NETWORK, THAT

03:06:59.891,03:07:05.553
WILL CONTINUE TO BE DESIGNED
FOR THE AUTOMOBILE.
AS PER DIRECTION AND

03:07:05.555,03:07:09.698
POLICIES WITHIN THE CTP.
>> THAT’S KIND OF WHAT I
THOUGHT, I JUST WANTED

03:07:09.700,03:07:17.010
CLARIFICATION ON THAT.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ALDERMAN FARRELL WITH

03:07:17.012,03:07:20.047
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION
AND THEN MY QUESTIONS FOR
ADMINISTRATION.

03:07:20.049,03:07:25.378
>> THANK YOU.
SO CAN YOU PLEASE CLARIFY,
MR. VANDER POOTEN, WHY BOTH

03:07:25.380,03:07:36.518
ACCESSES CAN’T STAY OPEN?
WHAT RULES PREVENT THAT?
ARE THEY OUR RULES OR OTHER

03:07:36.520,03:07:39.822
ORDERS OF GOVERNMENT RULES?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, JUST TO
CLARIFY, YOU’RE REFERRING TO

03:07:39.824,03:07:44.396
THE TWO ACCESSES FROM 83rd
STREET?
THE ONE PUBLIC AND THE ONE

03:07:44.398,03:07:50.162
EMERGENCY ACCESS?
I WOULD SUGGEST IT’S MORE
FROM AN OPERATIONAL

03:07:50.164,03:07:58.629
STANDPOINT, THE
CLOSELY-SPACED INTERSECTIONS,
AS WELL AS A DESIRE FOR, I

03:07:58.631,03:08:03.244
GUESS, SAFE AND
WELL-MAINTAINED ROADS.
THAT THE CURRENT ACCESS TO

03:08:03.246,03:08:07.912
GREENVIEW VILLAGE IS NOT THE
MOST IDEAL FROM A GRADE
STANDPOINT AND OPERATION AND

03:08:07.914,03:08:12.452
MAINTENANCE AND A TRANSIT
STANDPOINT.
WE PREFER FOR THAT TRAFFIC

03:08:12.454,03:08:18.119
TO BE SERVED ON A MORE
APPROPRIATE CITY STREET SUCH
AS THE TWO NORTH-SOUTH

03:08:18.121,03:08:21.887
STREETS PROPOSED WITHIN
GREENBRIAR STAGE TWO.
>> OKAY.

03:08:21.889,03:08:27.288
SO MY QUESTION THEN I THINK
IS TO MR. WATSON.
MR. WATSON, WE DISCUSSED

03:08:27.290,03:08:32.652
THIS AT LENGTH IN PLANNING
COMMISSION.
AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS BY

03:08:32.654,03:08:35.822
MR. STURGESS, WHICH WAS
SUPPORTED BY ALL MEMBERS OF
THE PLANNING COMMISSION,

03:08:35.824,03:08:41.324
TALKED ABOUT THE NEED FOR A
MASTER PLAN.
AND THERE WAS SOME HEALTHY

03:08:41.326,03:08:46.335
DISCUSSION ABOUT SOME OF THE
THINGS THAT THE COMMUNITY
BROUGHT UP, WHICH IS THAT

03:08:46.337,03:08:55.009
RICH COMMUNITY FLAVOUR THAT
WE DON’T SEE A LOT OF IN NEW
DEVELOPMENT IN CALGARY.

03:08:55.011,03:09:02.258
SO HOW WOULD THAT WORK THEN?
WOULD THAT NEED TO BE –
IT’S A MOTION ARISING WORK

03:09:02.260,03:09:08.561
THAT NEED TO BE A MOTION
ARISING OF THE DECISION
TODAY?

03:09:08.563,03:09:15.135
AND IS THIS THE BEST
LOCATION FOR THE PLANNING
WORK IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE

03:09:15.137,03:09:21.508
THAT RICH COMMUNITY THAT THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION SO
DESPERATELY WANTS?

03:09:21.510,03:09:28.342
>> THROUGH THE CHAIR, IF I
COULD, ALDERMAN FARRELL,
THIS IS A VERY CHALLENGING

03:09:28.344,03:09:31.085
SITE.
I THINK THIS IS ABOUT THE
THIRD TIME I’VE DEALT WITH

03:09:31.087,03:09:36.423
IT IN MY CAREER.
BUT YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT,
PLANNING COMMISSION DID TALK

03:09:36.425,03:09:40.828
ABOUT THE NEED TO LOOK AT IT
MORE COMPREHENSIVELY, MUCH
LIKE SOME OF THE MEMBERS OF

03:09:40.830,03:09:45.168
THE COMMUNITY SPOKE TO
EARLIER.
THE WAY IT WOULD WORK, THERE

03:09:45.170,03:09:49.541
WAS A MOTION ARISING OUT OF
PLANNING COMMISSION.
WE WOULD THEN MAKE SURE THAT

03:09:49.543,03:09:52.510
THAT WAS PUT ON THE FILE AND
AT THE TIME WHEN THE FIRST
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT CAME IN

03:09:52.512,03:10:00.155
ON THIS SITE, WE WOULD ASK
THAT THAT MASTER PLAN BE
DONE TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF

03:10:00.157,03:10:05.355
DETAIL AND SOMEWHAT IN THE
LINES OF WHERE ALDERMAN
CARRA WAS COMING IN TERMS OF

03:10:05.357,03:10:08.656
SEEING HOW THIS WOULD WORK,
IN TERMS OF THE ASPIRATIONS
THAT HAVE VERBALLY BEEN

03:10:08.658,03:10:13.163
MENTIONED.
ANOTHER MOTION ARISING BY
COUNCIL HERE COULD DO

03:10:13.165,03:10:18.136
EXACTLY THE SAME THING AND
THAT WOULD AGAIN BE PUT ON
THE FILE IN TERMS OF THE

03:10:18.138,03:10:22.905
POSSE SYSTEM SO THAT WHEN AN
APPLICATION DOES COME IN FOR
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT ON THIS

03:10:22.907,03:10:29.643
LAND, THAT IT IS ACCOMPANIED
BY QUOTE A MASTER PLAN THAT
LOOKS AT ALL THE PIECES AND

03:10:29.645,03:10:33.086
ANOTHER LEVEL OF DETAIL AS
WE START SEEING AT THAT
LEVEL OF DETAIL WHETHER

03:10:33.088,03:10:36.159
WE’RE GOING TO START
ACHIEVING WHAT WE’RE HOPING
TO DO IN THIS.

03:10:36.161,03:10:42.298
>> SO THAT MASTER PLAN WORK,
AND I BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE
HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY

03:10:42.300,03:10:45.865
REDEVELOP PROPERTY WITHIN
OUR CITY BOUNDARIES, THAT
SHOULD BE LOOKING AT MASTER

03:10:45.867,03:10:51.941
PLANS, THAT WORK IS NOT PART
OF THIS PROCESS TODAY, IT’S
FUTURE PROCESS, BUT IT’S

03:10:51.943,03:10:58.979
JUST AS NECESSARY.
>> THROUGH THE CHAIR, WE ARE
NOT RELUCTANT TO DO — I USE

03:10:58.981,03:11:02.916
THE WORD MASTER PLAN, BUT I
KNOW THAT’S A LOADED WORD
AND PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT

03:11:02.918,03:11:07.813
INTERPRETATIONS OF WHAT THAT
MEANS, BUT QUITE OFTEN, AND
I KNOW IN SOME CASES WE USE

03:11:07.815,03:11:12.484
MASTER PLAN OR CONCEPT PLANS
AND THEN A COUPLE YEARS
LATER, SOMEONE BRINGS BACK A

03:11:12.486,03:11:16.315
PLAN THAT DOESN’T LOOK
ANYTHING LIKE THE ORIGINAL
LAND USE AND THERE’S ANOTHER

03:11:16.317,03:11:21.820
WHOLE SET OF PROCESSES THAT
GET KICKED INTO PLAY SO
WE’RE TODAY, THOUGH, TRYING

03:11:21.822,03:11:26.325
TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT,
OVERALL, THE LAND USES WITH
THE RANGES THAT ARE

03:11:26.327,03:11:32.296
ESTABLISHED IN THE ARP AND
WITHIN THE LAND USE ITSELF
ARE APPROPRIATE FOR THIS

03:11:32.298,03:11:39.203
PIECE OF LAND.
AND IF NOT THIS, THEN WHAT?
AGAIN, COUNCIL KNOWS IF WE

03:11:39.205,03:11:43.570
SAY NOTHING’S APPROPRIATE,
THEN I GUESS WE BETTER BE
TALKING TO MR. STEVENS ABOUT

03:11:43.572,03:11:48.071
BUYING THIS LAND OR WE HAVE
TO FIND OUT WHAT ACTUALLY
WILL FIT ON THIS LAND.

03:11:48.073,03:11:54.212
I THINK, IN THIS PARTICULAR
APPLICATION, THERE ARE SOME
ASPECTS HERE THAT, IN FACT,

03:11:54.214,03:11:58.948
COULD MOVE US TOWARDS WHERE
WE HAVE TO GO IN TERMS OF
INTENSEIFICATION AND SOME –

03:11:58.950,03:12:02.481
IF PEOPLE ARE NOT LIVING
HERE, THEY’RE LIVING
SOMEWHERE ELSE, AND ARE MOST

03:12:02.483,03:12:07.517
LIKELY LIVING ON THE EDGES.
AND THAT IS NOT WHERE WE
SUGGEST PLAN IT OUGHT TO BE

03:12:07.519,03:12:13.965
GOING, AND IF WE CANNOT
IN-FILL PIECES LIKE THIS,
FRANKLY, COUNCIL, WE WILL

03:12:13.967,03:12:18.061
OVER THE NEXT SIX YEARS
WATCH US GROW ON THE EDGE AS
OPPOSED TO –

03:12:18.063,03:12:22.934
>> WHICH WE HAVE BEEN DOING
AT GREAT COST.
AND OF COURSE YOU KNOW THAT

03:12:22.936,03:12:28.170
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO A
MORE AGGRESSIVE PLAN IT,
SIMILAR TO WHERE WE STARTED

03:12:28.172,03:12:33.487
OUT, BUT THANKS FOR THOSE
ANSWERS.
THANK YOU.

03:12:33.489,03:12:36.756
>> NEW CENTRAL LIBRARY,
REALLY BIG NEW CENTRAL
LIBRARY.

03:12:36.758,03:12:40.758
YOU ASKED WHAT THE USE OF
THAT LAND COULD BE.
MR. VANDER POOTEN, I THINK

03:12:40.760,03:12:43.524
YOU’VE ANSWERED THIS
QUESTION ALREADY, BUT I WANT
TO PUT IT TO YOU QUITE

03:12:43.526,03:12:49.032
PLAINLY.
A NUMBER OF FOLKS WITHIN AND
OUTSIDE OF THE CITY HAVE

03:12:49.034,03:12:55.570
SUGGESTED TO ME THAT THE
BEAUFORT ROAD INTERCHANGE AS
CURRENTLY PLANNED IS

03:12:55.572,03:12:59.040
INACCURATE EVEN FOR WHAT IS
CURRENTLY APPROVED BY
COUNCIL.

03:12:59.042,03:13:02.885
THE WORD I’VE HEARD USED ARE
IT WILL BE A FAILURE ON THE
FIRST DAY.

03:13:02.887,03:13:06.292
IS THIS AN UNFAIR ASSESSMENT,
DO YOU THINK?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I WOULD

03:13:06.294,03:13:10.362
SUGGEST THAT THAT IS UNFAIR.
YOU KNOW, A LOT OF WORK HAS
BEEN DONE BY THE CITY AND

03:13:10.364,03:13:14.499
ITS CONSULTANTS TO DESIGN
THE MOST APPROPRIATE PIECE
OF INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THIS

03:13:14.501,03:13:20.668
LOCATION.
TO SERVE THE DESIRED
INTENSITIES IN ITS

03:13:20.670,03:13:26.569
SURROUNDINGS.
THE AREA CURRENTLY OPERATES
WITH A SIGNALIZED

03:13:26.571,03:13:29.070
INTERSECTION.
THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SAFETY
ISSUES IN THE PAST.

03:13:29.072,03:13:33.385
THERE ARE SOME PEAK CAPACITY
ISSUES.
DAY ONE, I DON’T BELIEVE

03:13:33.387,03:13:38.487
THERE TO BE ANY ISSUES WITH
THE PROPOSED INTERCHANGE.
YOUR WORSHIP, PER MY

03:13:38.489,03:13:43.428
PREVIOUS COMMENTS, THERE
WILL NEED TO BE AN ULTIMATE
DESIGN.

03:13:43.430,03:13:50.732
THE INITIAL DESIGN AS
MENTIONED IS ONLY SIX LANES
CROSSING THE TCH AND AT SOME

03:13:50.734,03:13:54.604
POINT IN THE FUTURE, WE HAVE
TO LOOK AT THE TIMING AND
FUNDING OF THE WIDENING OF

03:13:54.606,03:13:59.245
THE STRUCTURE.
>> AND FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE,
GIVEN THAT YOU KNOW WHAT IS

03:13:59.247,03:14:05.479
BEING PROPOSED BUT IS NOT
APPROVED FOR THE LANDS SOUTH
OF THE HIGHWAY, WOULD THE

03:14:05.481,03:14:10.882
ULTIMATE STRUCTURE SERVE IF
COUNCIL, I’M VERY
HYPOTHETICAL HERE, IF

03:14:10.884,03:14:14.101
COUNCIL WERE TO APPROVE
WHAT’S BEING PROPOSED FOR
SOUTH OF THE HIGHWAY, WOULD

03:14:14.103,03:14:18.569
THE ULTIMATE STRUCTURE SERVE
OR WOULD IT STILL BE
INADEQUATE, DO YOU THINK?

03:14:18.571,03:14:21.734
>> YOUR WORSHIP, ONE OF THE
CONCERNS THAT I HEARD RAISED
TODAY THAT HAS BEEN ECHOED

03:14:21.736,03:14:25.939
BY THE TRANSPORTATION
DEPARTMENT IS THAT SINGLE
POINT OF ACCESS.

03:14:25.941,03:14:31.713
YOU KNOW, SINGLE POINTS OF
ACCESS HAVE INHERENT AMOUNT
OF RISK TO THEM WHEN THERE

03:14:31.715,03:14:36.385
ARE CAPACITY ISSUES THAT
RAISE THEMSELVES OR
EMERGENCY SITUATIONS.

03:14:36.387,03:14:40.814
AS WE’VE CONDITIONED WITH
GREENBRIAR, WE NEED TO
INVESTIGATE ALTERNATIVE

03:14:40.816,03:14:46.848
CONNECTIONS ACROSS STONY AND
THE TRANSCANADA.
AND WE’VE MADE THOSE SAME

03:14:46.850,03:14:49.788
COMMENTS TO WIN SPORT TO THE
SOUTH.
I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO

03:14:49.790,03:14:54.128
RECOGNIZE THAT WITH ANY
INTENSITY OF DEVELOPMENT,
EVEN FURTHER THAN WHAT

03:14:54.130,03:15:02.800
EXISTS TODAY, ONE VEHICULAR
OR ALL MODE ACCESS IS NOT
SUFFICIENT.

03:15:02.802,03:15:09.037
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS FOR
ADMINISTRATION?

03:15:09.039,03:15:16.153
ALL RIGHT THEN.
ALDERMAN HODGES.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

03:15:16.155,03:15:22.418
I’LL FIRST REFER TO A BIT OF
THE HISTORY OF THE SITE
BRIEFLY WHICH IS A PART OF

03:15:22.420,03:15:33.732
THE LAND USE APPLICATION.
LOC 2010-00 06 ON PAGE 3
TSHG GIVES AWE HISTORY OF

03:15:33.734,03:15:38.874
THE SITE AND AS MR. WATSON
SAID MINUTES AGO, HE’S SEEN
THREE APPLICATIONS ON THIS

03:15:38.876,03:15:41.981
SITE, THE THIRD IN HIS
CAREER.
I AGREE.

03:15:41.983,03:15:45.981
THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ONE
EVEN EARLIER THAN ANY OF US
REMEMBER, BUT IN THE MOST

03:15:45.983,03:15:51.217
SIGNIFICANT WAS IN JULY 1995
WHEN THE GIMLIBLE HEALTH
PARK DEVELOPMENT WAS

03:15:51.219,03:15:59.830
PROPOSED FOR THIS SITE.
– GIMBLE.
WHICH DID NOT PROCEED

03:15:59.832,03:16:03.933
BECAUSE I BELIEVE OF FEDERAL
POLICIES WITH RESPECT TO
HEALTH CARE FUNDING SO THAT

03:16:03.935,03:16:07.780
WAS AN APPROVED PLAN THAT
COVERED ALMOST ALL OF THE
SITE.

03:16:07.782,03:16:13.449
AND UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS
NEVER IMPLEMENTED.
THE CURRENT APPLICATION HAS

03:16:13.451,03:16:21.615
BEEN IN THE MILL FOR SOME
TIME AND FOR VARIOUS REASONS,
AND I’M NOT BLAMING ANYBODY

03:16:21.617,03:16:28.459
OR SINGLING OUT ANY ONE
GROUP IN PARTICULAR, A
SUFFICIENT DIALOGUE TO ME, A

03:16:28.461,03:16:33.800
CLEAR SIT-DOWN DISCUSSION OR
DISCUSSIONS HAVE NOT
OCCURRED.

03:16:33.802,03:16:37.642
YES, THERE’S BEEN AN
EXCHANGE OF E-MAILS BETWEEN
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

03:16:37.644,03:16:42.614
AND THE APPLICANT, AND
BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION GROUP AND THE

03:16:42.616,03:16:46.447
PLANNING AND BUILDING
DEPARTMENT.
HOWEVER, WE HAVE TO REMEMBER

03:16:46.449,03:16:50.146
THAT EVERYONE WHO SPOKE
TODAY ON BEHALF OF THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION ARE

03:16:50.148,03:17:02.497
ALL VOLUNTEERS.
THEY’RE NOT PAID LOBBYISTS,
THEY’RE NOT PAID TO PRESENT

03:17:02.499,03:17:05.731
DETAILED COMMISSION –
SUBMISSIONS AT PUBLIC
HEARINGS OF COUNCIL, THEY DO

03:17:05.733,03:17:08.536
THE BEST THEY CAN WITH THE
INFORMATION THAT THEY’VE
GOT.

03:17:08.538,03:17:13.247
AND I THINK THEY’VE MADE A
REASONABLE ATTEMPT TO
PRESENT THEIR POSITION, EVEN

03:17:13.249,03:17:21.344
THOUGH NOT EVERYONE AGREES
WITH IT, AND PARTICULARLY
NOT THE APPLICANT.

03:17:21.346,03:17:28.877
PERHAPS THE REASON THAT
THERE WAS NOT A GREAT DEAL
OF ENTHUSIASM FOR A MEETING

03:17:28.879,03:17:34.242
TO THIS POINT IN TIME WAS A
LETTER THAT WAS SENT IN,
WHICH IS APPENDIX 5 ON THE

03:17:34.244,03:17:39.790
LAND USE APPLICATION, THE
LETTER THAT WAS SENT IN BY
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION TO

03:17:39.792,03:17:46.316
THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT
ARTICULATING SIX ISSUES THAT
ARE OUTLINED ON FEBRUARY

03:17:46.318,03:17:53.758
12th, 2010.
THE RESPONSE TO THAT IS IN A
LETTER, APPENDIX 6, FROM

03:17:53.760,03:17:58.265
BROWN AND ASSOCIATES, WHICH
REFUTES ALL BUT ONE OF THE
COMMENTS BEING MADE BY THE

03:17:58.267,03:18:02.639
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION.
SO, IN EFFECT, THERE HAS, UP
TO THIS POINT, BEEN

03:18:02.641,03:18:09.973
AGREEMENT TO DISAGREE.
BUT I THINK THAT THERE IS AN
AREA OF AGREEMENT AND CAN BE

03:18:09.975,03:18:16.187
AN AREA OF AGREEMENT ON THIS
PROPOSED LAND USE AND ON
THESE TWO THINGS, THE

03:18:16.189,03:18:20.485
PROPOSED ARP AMENDMENT AND
THE LAND USE APPLICATION AND
FOR THOSE REASONS, AND I’VE

03:18:20.487,03:18:27.028
WRITTEN THIS OUT BUT IT’S
NOT TYPED, MADAM CLERK, AND
THIS IS MY MOTION, THAT BOTH

03:18:27.030,03:18:35.371
BYLAWS 12P-2011 AND 13D-2007
BE REFERRED TO THE
ADMINISTRATION FOR THE

03:18:35.373,03:18:39.807
PURPOSES OF CONVENING –
2011 — A THOROUGH DIALOGUE
BETWEEN THE THREE PARTIES,

03:18:39.809,03:18:44.651
THAT IS THE PLANNING
DEPARTMENT, THE LAND OWNER
AND THE REPRESENTATIVE –

03:18:44.653,03:18:50.920
AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE
BCA, WITH A SUPPLEMENTARY
REPORT TO BE BROUGHT BACK TO

03:18:50.922,03:18:58.193
COUNCIL NOT LATER THAN THE
JUNE 13th, 2011, COMBINED
MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL.

03:18:58.195,03:19:03.696
I THINK THAT IS A POINT IN
TIME AT WHICH WE’LL KNOW IF
THE PARTIES AGREE ON ANY

03:19:03.698,03:19:08.635
POINTS, AND I THINK THERE
CAN BE AN AGREEMENT ON SOME.
AND IT WILL BE BACK BEFORE

03:19:08.637,03:19:16.507
COUNCIL AS A REPORT, NOT TO
THE PUBLIC HEARING AGAIN,
BUT AS A REPORT FOR COUNCIL

03:19:16.509,03:19:20.046
TO ADJUDICATE.
BUT TODAY, YOUR WORSHIP, I
DON’T THINK THERE’S A BIG

03:19:20.048,03:19:27.088
RUSH TO PROCEED.
I DON’T SEE ANY EARTH-MOVING
EQUIPMENT OUT ON THE SITE.

03:19:27.090,03:19:32.558
WE KNOW THAT NOTHING MUCH IS
GOING TO PROCEED IN TERMS OF
DEVELOPMENT UNTIL THE

03:19:32.560,03:19:38.667
CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW
INTERCHANGE IS UNDER WAY AND,
YES, I’M SURE THE LAND OWNER

03:19:38.669,03:19:44.743
WOULD LIKE TO PROCEED WITH
SOME ENGINEERING WORK BUT
THERE’S THE ELEPHANT IN THE

03:19:44.745,03:19:49.745
ROOM THAT WE DON’T HAVE AN
ANSWER — ANY ANSWERS FOR
TODAY, AND THE INFORMATION

03:19:49.747,03:19:53.752
I’VE HEARD TODAY FROM THE
REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE
TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT IS

03:19:53.754,03:19:57.626
SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT THAN WHAT
I’VE HEARD AND DISCUSSED
WITH THE TRANSPORTATION

03:19:57.628,03:20:03.463
DEPARTMENT IN TERMS OF THE
PROPOSED LAND USE FOR CANADA
OLYMPIC PARK AND WIN SPORT.

03:20:03.465,03:20:09.169
AND THAT’S WHY YOU’LL SEE
THE DISCUSSION MOVING FROM A
SIX-LANE OVERPASS OVER

03:20:09.171,03:20:13.576
TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY TO AN
EIGHT-LANE OVERPASS OVER
TRANSCANADA HIGHWAY AT

03:20:13.578,03:20:21.445
BEAUFORT ROAD AND THAT IS
OBVIOUSLY AS A RESULT OF THE
REVIEW OF THE WIN SPORT

03:20:21.447,03:20:24.620
APPLICATION WHICH I
UNDERSTAND WILL BE AT
COUNCIL AT THE JULY PUBLIC

03:20:24.622,03:20:29.327
HEARING.
SO THERE ARE A NUMBER OF
ISSUES WITH THE WIN SPORT

03:20:29.329,03:20:33.625
APPLICATION, EVEN THOUGH
YOU’VE HEARD TODAY THAT
THERE MAY NOT BE, I BELIEVE

03:20:33.627,03:20:38.193
THERE ARE.
AND HOPEFULLY IN THE INTERIM,
THEY WILL GET THOSE SORTED

03:20:38.195,03:20:44.393
OUT BEFORE THE PUBLIC
HEARING ON JULY 4th OR 5th,
WHENEVER OUR JULY PUBLIC

03:20:44.395,03:20:47.894
HEARING IS.
DIG MY LITTLE CALENDAR OUT
HERE.

03:20:47.896,03:20:51.959
JULY 4th.
COMBINED MEETING OF COUNCIL,
THAT’S WHEN YOU’LL SEE, AS

03:20:51.961,03:20:55.632
FAR AS I KNOW, THE WIN SPORT
APPLICATION.
SO YOUR WSHIP, I DO THINK

03:20:55.634,03:21:00.465
WE HAVE TIME TO BE HAVING A
SECOND LOOK AT THIS.
I THINK IT WOULD BE

03:21:00.467,03:21:03.833
WORTHWHILE.
THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL
PLANS APPROVED FOR THIS SITE

03:21:03.835,03:21:09.072
THAT HAVE NEVER PROCEEDED.
I THINK PERHAPS THIS ONE HAS
THE MORE LIKELIHOOD OF

03:21:09.074,03:21:16.447
PROCEEDING.
IT’S NOT A SINGLE-USE
APPLICATION THAT THE GIMBLE

03:21:16.449,03:21:21.292
HEALTH PARK WAS AND I ASK
COUNCIL TO SUPPORT THIS
MOTION.

03:21:21.294,03:21:25.433
>> I PERSONALLY AM FEELING
THE EARTH MOVE WITH ALL THE
ELEPHANTS IN THE ROOM HERE

03:21:25.435,03:21:28.534
MYSELF, BUT DO I HAVE A
SECONDER FOR THAT REFERRAL
MOTION?

03:21:28.536,03:21:35.636
THANKS, ALDERMAN CARRA.
ON THE REFERRAL MOTION THEN,
ALDERMAN LOWE.

03:21:35.638,03:21:42.558
>> YOUR WORSHIP, PLEASE
RESHMI, CAN I DEBATE
REFERRAL OR ONLY AS TO TIME?

03:21:42.560,03:21:46.261
>> YOU CAN DEBATE THE
REFERRAL.
>> I CAN DEBATE THE

03:21:46.263,03:21:51.901
REFERRAL.
WELL, YOUR WORSHIP, IF IT
WERE A REFERRAL FOR TWO

03:21:51.903,03:21:56.574
WEEKS TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT
ALDERMAN HODGES IS
SUGGESTING, I’D BE PREPARED

03:21:56.576,03:22:03.514
TO ENTERTAIN IT.
BUT FOR THIS LONG, I’M NOT.
AND I’D BE FAR HAPPIER IF

03:22:03.516,03:22:11.520
THE MOTION WAS TO GRANT
FIRST READING.
THEN REFER IT FOR TWO WEEKS

03:22:11.522,03:22:14.756
FOR THE DISCUSSION TO TAKE
PLACE WHICH WOULD ENABLE ANY
KIND OF AMENDMENTS TO BE

03:22:14.758,03:22:24.707
MADE AT SECOND READING.
NOW, IF REFERRALS ARE NOT
AMENDABLE, IF I RECALL

03:22:24.709,03:22:45.495
CORRECTLY…
>> ONLY AS TO TIME, SIR.
ONLY AS TO TIME.

03:22:45.497,03:22:51.366
>> ONLY AS TO TIME.
SO YOUR WORSHIP, I WILL
AMEND THE DATE TO NEXT

03:22:51.368,03:22:56.702
COUNCIL MEETING WHICH IS THE
18th DAY OF APRIL.
>> THAT’S ONLY A WEEK FROM

03:22:56.704,03:23:00.275
NOW.
>> I APPRECIATE THAT.
>> OKAY, JUST SO YOU KNOW.

03:23:00.277,03:23:03.615
BECAUSE YOU SAID TWO WEEKS
EARLIER.
>> I KNOW, I APOLOGIZE, IT’S

03:23:03.617,03:23:10.023
ONE WEEK FROM NOW.
WHAT THAT DOES, YOUR WORSHIP,
IS ALLOWS OR, IF YOU WILL,

03:23:10.025,03:23:17.936
IT’S GOING TO PUT THE TWO
GROUPS INTO A ROOM, I
RECOGNIZE THAT THEY ARE

03:23:17.938,03:23:25.341
VOLUNTEERS, BUT I HAPPEN TO
KNOW THAT THE CITY FOLKS DO
WORK EVENINGS AND AS I THINK

03:23:25.343,03:23:31.341
SOMEBODY POINTED OUT HERE
SUNDAY MORNINGS AND SUNDAY
AFTERNOONS AND SATURDAYS,

03:23:31.343,03:23:37.472
THEY WILL DO WHATEVER’S
NECESSARY TO TRY TO GET THE
TWO GROUPS TOGETHER.

03:23:37.474,03:23:41.881
THIS ITEM AS ALDERMAN
FARRELL POINTED OUT QUITE
CORRECTLY WAS SUBJECT TO A

03:23:41.883,03:23:47.417
VERY LONG DISCUSSION AT
PLANNING COMMISSION, A VERY,
VERY, VERY LONG DISCUSSION

03:23:47.419,03:23:51.589
AT PLANNING COMMISSION.
THE ISSUES OF THE ACCESS TO
THE MOBILE HOME PARK, THE

03:23:51.591,03:23:56.988
ISSUES OF FUTURE ACCESS TO
THE MOBILE HOME PARK, THE
ISSUES OF EMERGENCY ACCESS,

03:23:56.990,03:24:08.029
THE ISSUES OF THE ACCESS OFF
OF 83rd STREET, WHATEVER IT
IS, WERE ALL DISCUSSED.

03:24:08.031,03:24:15.057
THE INTERNAL FLOW OF ROOM, I
BELIEVE THE LOGICAL
EXTENSION OUT OF THAT WAS

03:24:15.059,03:24:21.127
MR. STURGESS’S MOTION
ARISING ASKING FOR THE
OVERALL VISION FOR THE AREA

03:24:21.129,03:24:26.811
TO BE DEVELOPED WITH THE
FIRST DEVELOPMENT PERMIT.
SO IT WAS GIVEN AN

03:24:26.813,03:24:31.585
EXTREMELY-THOROUGH HEARING
AT PLANNING COMMISSION.
AND THIS IS THE

03:24:31.587,03:24:36.389
RECOMMENDATION, IF YOU GO
THROUGH IT, YOU’LL FIND NOT
ONLY IT WAS PASSED

03:24:36.391,03:24:40.693
UNANIMOUSLY TO THAT PLANNING
COMMISSION, BUT THERE WERE A
SERIES OF AMENDMENTS AND

03:24:40.695,03:24:45.626
MOTIONS ARISING CAME OUT OF
IT WHICH AGAIN, IF I RECALL
CORRECTLY, AND IT’S IN THE

03:24:45.628,03:24:49.498
REPORT, WERE SUPPORTED BY
ALL MEMBERS OF PLANNING
COMMISSION.

03:24:49.500,03:24:54.640
SO THIS WAS BEATEN TO DEATH,
SIR.
AND I THINK ONE WEEK SHOULD

03:24:54.642,03:25:01.709
BE SUFFICIENT TIME TO AIR
THE ISSUES BETWEEN THE
COMMUNITY AND THE

03:25:01.711,03:25:09.257
DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY AND
THE COMMUNITY, DEVELOPMENT
AUTHORITY AND THE APPLICANT

03:25:09.259,03:25:16.393
AND THEN BRING IT BACK HERE
AND UNREGRETTABLY, WE WILL
START OUT AT FIRST READING.

03:25:16.395,03:25:24.202
IF THERE ARE AMENDMENTS TO
BE MADE AT SECOND READING,
IT WILLING — IT WILL GIVE

03:25:24.204,03:25:27.001
ALDERMAN HODGES OR WHATEVER
AN OPPORTUNITY THEN.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN LOWE.

03:25:27.003,03:25:30.841
WE HAVE AN AMENDMENT TO THE
REFERRAL MOTION SECONDED BY
ALDERMAN STEVENSON TO CHANGE

03:25:30.843,03:25:35.351
THE DATE — WE DON’T HAVE IT
UP ON THE SCREEN YET — TO
CHANGE THE DATE — THERE WE

03:25:35.353,03:25:41.260
GO — FROM JUNE 13th TO
APRIL 18th.
ON THE AMENDMENT, ALDERMAN

03:25:41.262,03:25:46.924
CARRA.
>> I’VE GOT A VARIETY OF
THINGS TO SAY.

03:25:46.926,03:25:51.773
FIRST OFF, THANK YOU VERY
MUCH, ALDERMAN LOWE, FOR
YOUR SYNOPSIS OF WHAT WAS

03:25:51.775,03:25:56.414
DISCUSSED AT CALGARY
PLANNING COMMISSION.
I THINK THAT THAT’S THE KIND

03:25:56.416,03:26:00.213
OF SYNOPSIS THAT WE SHOULD
GET FROM PLANNING
COMMISSION.

03:26:00.215,03:26:04.787
IT TAKES FIVE MINUTES, GIVES
A LAY-OUT.
I WAS VERY CONCERNED WITH

03:26:04.789,03:26:09.488
OUR REPORT.
THERE WAS A VERY PERFUNCTORY
TREATMENT GIVEN TO OTHER

03:26:09.490,03:26:13.322
MODES OF TRANSPORTATION
OTHER THAN PRIVATE
AUTOMOBILE.

03:26:13.324,03:26:19.764
AND THERE WAS A VERY
PERFUNCTORY TREATMENT GIVEN
TO COMMUNITY CONSULTATION

03:26:19.766,03:26:25.466
WITH RESPECT TO THE CALIBRE,
WHAT THE ISSUES WERE, AND
THAT’S PROBLEMATIC, AND I

03:26:25.468,03:26:31.264
THINK THAT WE NEED TO MAKE
OUR CPC REPORTS BETTER.
AS I EXPLAINED TO THE

03:26:31.266,03:26:35.413
APPLICANT WHEN THEY PAID ME
THE COURTESY OF VISITING ME
IN MY OFFICE TO DISCUSS THIS

03:26:35.415,03:26:39.874
ISSUE, I HAVE MASSIVE
CONCERNS THAT IT SEEMS I
SHARE WITH THE COMMUNITY

03:26:39.876,03:26:42.977
REGARDING THE ONE WAY IN,
ONE WAY OUT NATURE OF THE
PLAN.

03:26:42.979,03:26:47.777
I THINK IT’S EXTREMELY
PROBLEMATIC.
I ALSO, AS I EXPLAINED TO

03:26:47.779,03:26:53.621
THE APPLICANT, HAVE SERIOUS
CONCERNS WITH THE LACK OF
INTEGRATION BETWEEN THE MEL

03:26:53.623,03:26:57.301
CORE PART OF THE PLAN, THE
MOBILE HOME PARK, AND THE
PARCEL TO THE WEST, I FORGET

03:26:57.303,03:27:05.373
THE NAME THAT WE’RE –
>> ( INAUDIBLE )
>> NO, TO THE WEST.

03:27:05.375,03:27:09.268
THE PARK SIDE PORTION OF THE
PLAN.
I MEAN, IT SEEMS TO ME THAT

03:27:09.270,03:27:13.274
THIS ENTIRE THING COMPRISES
A NEIGHBOURHOOD UNIT AND
WHETHER AND HOW IT HANGS

03:27:13.276,03:27:17.243
TOGETHER AS A NEIGHBOURHOOD
UNIT, HOW IT ALL WORKS, IS
THE QUESTION.

03:27:17.245,03:27:22.378
AND SLAPPING A COUPLE OF
LAND USE PARCELS WITH A
SKELETAL ROAD NETWORK THAT’S

03:27:22.380,03:27:29.407
VERY, VERY QUESTIONABLE AS
TO WHETHER WE WILL BE ABLE
TO ACHIEVE SOMETHING THAT’S

03:27:29.409,03:27:34.052
QUALITATIVELY THE INTENT OF
PLANNING, THERE IS ALSO, AS
WE DISCUSSED TODAY, HUGE

03:27:34.054,03:27:38.855
QUESTION MARKS REGARDING THE
LACK OF COORDINATION BETWEEN
WHAT’S HAPPENING THE WAY AT

03:27:38.857,03:27:42.829
COP, AND WE’RE TALKING ABOUT
AN EIGHT-LANE INTERCHANGE
HOPING THAT’S GOING TO DO

03:27:42.831,03:27:48.402
IT.
OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE A MODAL –
OBVIOUSLY, WE HAVE A MODAL

03:27:48.404,03:27:52.834
PRIORITIZEATION OF THE
AUTOMOBILE HERE THAT, FOR
ALL THE MIXED-USE HIGH

03:27:52.836,03:27:56.776
DENSITY IS NOT GETTING DOWN
TO THE CORE ISSUE OF WHAT
WE’RE TRYING TO ACHIEVE IN

03:27:56.778,03:28:00.275
PLAN IT.
MY FEELING, IF WE’RE TALKING
ABOUT DENSITY LIKE THIS, WE

03:28:00.277,03:28:04.082
BETTER TALK ABOUT
TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT
APPROACH TO THIS AND, AGAIN,

03:28:04.084,03:28:08.928
VERY PERFUNCTORY TREATMENT.
AS I EXPLAINED TO THE
APPLICANT, THOUGH, WHEN THEY

03:28:08.930,03:28:13.632
PAID ME THE COURTESY OF
COMING TO SEE ME, I THINK
THERE’S A LOT OF POTENTIAL

03:28:13.634,03:28:19.410
WITH THIS PLAN BUT THERE’S
HUGE QUESTION MARKS.
I THINK THAT, YOU KNOW, THE

03:28:19.412,03:28:22.175
EITHER/OR QUESTION THAT
WE’VE BEEN BATTING AROUND
HERE AS TO WHETHER THE

03:28:22.177,03:28:25.347
COMMUNITY IS RIGHT OR
WHETHER THE DEVELOPER’S
RIGHT AND THAT’S OUR PLACE

03:28:25.349,03:28:29.818
TO DECIDE, I THINK WE’VE
SORT OF BEEN — WE’RE IN A
HORRIBLE TRAP IN TERMS OF

03:28:29.820,03:28:33.811
QUANTITYIFICATION.
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT DENSITY,
WE’RE NIT-PICKING DENSITY

03:28:33.813,03:28:37.051
NUMBERS AND WHAT IT COMES
DOWN TO IS THE QUALITY OF
THE DEVELOPMENT.

03:28:37.053,03:28:45.259
AND IT COULD BE HIGH DENSITY
DEVELOPMENT THAT ACHIEVES
THE QUALITATIVE, YOU KNOW,

03:28:45.261,03:28:49.561
PROMOTION OF THE LIFESTYLE
THAT WE’RE TRYING AND THE
OPTIONS WE’RE TRYING TO

03:28:49.563,03:28:56.038
ACHIEVE THROUGH PLAN IT OR
IT COULD BE JUST MORE OF THE
SAYING WITH POTENTIALLY A

03:28:56.040,03:29:00.006
COUPLE OF ARCHITECTURAL
FEATURES TO MAKE IT LOOK
PRETTIER.

03:29:00.008,03:29:04.448
SO, I MEAN, I THINK THE
MASTER PLAN ISSUE IS THE
CORE PRINCIPLE, IS THE CORE

03:29:04.450,03:29:08.889
ISSUE, AND WHETHER IT IS
ABLE TO BE — WHETHER WE’RE
ABLE TO ACHIEVE WHAT WE’RE

03:29:08.891,03:29:15.644
TRYING TO ACHIEVE OR NOT
COMES 100% DOWN TO THE
MASTER PLAN.

03:29:15.646,03:29:20.585
YOU HEARD FROM THE COMMUNITY
MEMBERS, THEY’RE SAYING,
BOWNESS IS A VILLAGE.

03:29:20.587,03:29:25.989
WE WANT THAT VILLAGE
CHARACTER, AND, YOU KNOW,
YOU CAN HAVE VERY HIGH

03:29:25.991,03:29:31.193
DENSITY, VIBRANT VILLAGE OR
YOU CAN HAVE — THE THING
THEY’RE HANGING THEIR HAT ON

03:29:31.195,03:29:36.833
IS THE QUALITY AND THE
REALITY IS, AS A FORMER
PROFESSIONAL IN THE FIELD, I

03:29:36.835,03:29:40.368
HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE
QUALITY OF THE OUTCOME IS
GOING TO BE, AND THAT’S WHY

03:29:40.370,03:29:46.003
I THINK THE MASTER PLAN IS
ESSENTIAL.
SO I’M MORE INCLINED TO

03:29:46.005,03:29:50.341
SUPPORT DALE’S MOTION.
I SECONDED IT, OF COURSE,
BUT I THINK WHAT WE NEED TO

03:29:50.343,03:29:54.680
HAVE IS A MASTER PLAN
UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THIS IS
ALL GOING TO WORK.

03:29:54.682,03:29:58.747
RATHER THAN A COUPLE OF BIG
BLOBS ON THE LANDSCAPE.
IN MY EXPERIENCE, IF YOU

03:29:58.749,03:30:04.556
WANT TO ACHIEVE THE VIBRANT,
URBAN VILLAGES, THE ACTIVITY
CENTRES, THE MIX-USE,

03:30:04.558,03:30:10.224
EXCITING PLACE, YOU DESIGN
THEM, AND THEN YOU BACK THEM
OUT INTO THE BLOBS FOR LAND

03:30:10.226,03:30:14.683
USE AND OTHER THINGS.
TO TRY AND GET IT RIGHT AT
THE LAND USE, THE BLOB STAGE,

03:30:14.685,03:30:19.259
AND THEN, YOU KNOW, GET IT
DOWN TO THE RIGHT DESIGN,
YOU KNOW, WHAT IF YOU HAVE

03:30:19.261,03:30:23.402
TO MOVE A ROAD, WHAT IF YOU
HAVE — GET THE DESIGN RIGHT,
THEN BACK IT OUT.

03:30:23.404,03:30:28.341
SO I’D BE VERY — I NEED TO
SEE A MASTER PLAN BEFORE I’M
COMFORTABLE WITH THIS.

03:30:28.343,03:30:34.977
AND SO I WILL BE NOT
SUPPORTING THE AMENDMENT TO
THE REFERRAL.

03:30:34.979,03:30:39.820
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CARRA.
ON THE AMENDMENT, ALDERMAN
HODGES.

03:30:39.822,03:30:43.390
>> YES, YOUR WORSHIP, THANK
YOU.
YOUR WORSHIP, IF THE

03:30:43.392,03:30:47.828
AMENDMENTS HAD BEEN FOR TWO
WEEKS OR LONGER, I.E. FOUR
WEEKS, I COULD HAVE POSSIBLY

03:30:47.830,03:30:52.761
SUPPORTED IT.
EFFECTIVELY, ALDERMAN LOWE
AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL,

03:30:52.763,03:30:55.688
YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE
NEXT FOUR DAYS.
I DON’T THINK THE NEXT FOUR

03:30:55.690,03:31:01.757
DAYS IS EXACTLY REASONABLE.
PEOPLE DO HAVE THINGS, OTHER
THINGS IN THEIR LIVES, EVEN

03:31:01.759,03:31:05.292
OCCASIONALLY SOMETIMES
MEMBERS OF COUNCIL DO.
(Laughing)

03:31:05.294,03:31:08.461
THAT’S WHAT I’D LIKE TO KNOW,
TOO.
>> I MUST TRACK THEM DOWN.

03:31:08.463,03:31:14.104
>> THERE IS NO MEETING AFTER
THE 18th ON OUR SCHEDULE
UNTIL MAY 9th SO MAY 19th IS

03:31:14.106,03:31:19.078
THE COMBINED MEETING AND IF
ALDERMAN LOWE HAD SAID MAY
9th, I’D BE INCLINED TO

03:31:19.080,03:31:21.755
SUPPORT IT.
HE DIDN’T SO I WILL NOT BE
SUPPORTING THE AMENDMENT,

03:31:21.757,03:31:24.893
YOUR WORSHIP.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN HODGES.
ON THE AMENDMENT, ALDERMAN

03:31:24.895,03:31:31.063
MacLEOD.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
I TOO HAVE SOME CONCERNS

03:31:31.065,03:31:33.834
ABOUT THE TIMING OF THE
WEAK.
– WEEK.

03:31:33.836,03:31:39.414
I HAVE A LOT OF SYMPATHY FOR
THE APPLICANT IN THIS CASE,
AND I ALSO AM CONCERNED

03:31:39.416,03:31:48.347
ABOUT THE FACT THAT IT WAS
UNANIMOUSLY PASSED BY THE
COMMITTEE — COMMISSION, AND

03:31:48.349,03:31:53.558
I THINK THAT THE COMMUNITY
HAS BEEN REMISS IN NOT
MAKING THEMSELVES AVAILABLE

03:31:53.560,03:32:00.436
FOR FURTHER CONSULTATION.
HOWEVER, I THINK WE SOMEHOW
NEED TO MAKE THIS BETTER,

03:32:00.438,03:32:07.103
MAYBE NOT RIGHT IN THE FULL
SENSE, BUT WE CAN DO BETTER.
AND SO I WILL NOT SUPPORT

03:32:07.105,03:32:13.814
ONE WEEK, BUT I DO SUPPORT
– I DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS
GO ON ANY LONGER THAN IT

03:32:13.816,03:32:17.831
ABSOLUTELY IS NECESSARY.
THANK YOU.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN MacLEOD.

03:32:17.833,03:32:20.328
ON THE AMENDMENT, ALDERMAN
FARRELL?
>> THANK YOU.

03:32:20.330,03:32:26.596
WELL, I THINK THE REQUEST TO
MAY 9th IS A REASONABLE ONE.
I DON’T WANT TO DELAY IT AS

03:32:26.598,03:32:32.477
PER ALDERMAN HODGES’ REQUEST,
BUT I THINK MAY 9th GIVES
EVERYBODY THE OPPORTUNITY TO

03:32:32.479,03:32:39.313
LOCK AT THEIR CALENDARS, SO
I WILL AMEND THE AMENDMENT,
UNLESS THE MOVER OF THE

03:32:39.315,03:32:41.982
AMENDMENT WANTS TO CHANGE
IT.
I GUESS IT’S ALREADY ON THE

03:32:41.984,03:32:45.414
FLOOR.
I’LL AMEND THE AMENDMENT TO
MAY 9th, IF SOMEBODY WOULD

03:32:45.416,03:32:50.953
SECOND IT.
>> THANKS.
ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART,

03:32:50.955,03:32:58.225
ALL RIGHT, ON THE AMENDMENT
TO THE AMENDMENT, ANYONE?
ALDERMAN CARRA.

03:32:58.227,03:33:02.197
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
I GUESS THIS IS JUST A
QUESTION, AND I’M PUTTING

03:33:02.199,03:33:08.301
THIS TO ALDERMAN FARRELL,
THEN TO ALDERMAN LOWE, THEN
TO ALDERMAN HODGES.

03:33:08.303,03:33:14.507
WHAT ARE WE EXPECTING TO GET
OUT OF THE CONSUMPTION?
( PLEASE STAND BY )

03:34:17.359,03:34:22.929
>> BEING THAT WE HAVE CLOSED
THE PUBLIC PORTION, HOW DOES
THIS PLAY INTO ALL OF THIS

03:34:22.931,03:34:27.838
NOW.
ADDITIONAL SUBMISSIONS.
>> I WAS GOING TO ANSWER THAT

03:34:27.840,03:34:35.829
QUESTION BEFORE WE VOTED.
MAY AS WELL ANSWER IT NOW.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, AS ALWAYS

03:34:35.831,03:34:40.593
WHEN ITEMS ARE REFERRED BACK
FOR FURTHER CONFRONTATION
THERE IS A RISK THAT A NEW

03:34:40.595,03:34:43.823
ADVERTISEMENT AND PUBLIC
HEARING WILL BE REQUIRED.
REALLY DEPENDS WHAT

03:34:43.825,03:34:49.024
INFORMATION COMES UP.
THERE MAY BE NOTHING NEW THAT
ARISES, IN WHICH CASE COUNCIL

03:34:49.026,03:34:54.797
CAN SIMPLY PROCEED.
IF THERE IS NEW INFORMATION
THAT ARISES AS WE HAVE SEEN IN

03:34:54.799,03:34:56.966
THE PAST YEAR ON OTHER
APPLICATIONS IT MAY BE
NECESSARY TO READVERTISE AND

03:34:56.968,03:35:01.404
HAVE A NEW PUBLIC HEARING.
NOT JUST THE PEOPLE INVOLVED
IN THE MEET CONSULTATION BUT

03:35:01.406,03:35:06.172
THE GENERAL PUBLIC ARE ABLE TO
SPEAK TO THOSE ISSUES.
BECAUSE THERE COULD BE ISSUES

03:35:06.174,03:35:12.114
THAT ARISE THAT PEOPLE WEREN’T
AWARE OF THAT THEY MAY WISH TO
COME FORWARD AND ADDRESS THAT

03:35:12.116,03:35:15.447
OTHERWISE WOULDN’T HAVE
CONCERNED THEM.
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT,

03:35:15.449,03:35:17.918
Ms. SLOAN.
THAT’S ONE OF THE CONCERNS
THAT I HAD.

03:35:17.920,03:35:23.686
I KIND OF THOUGHT THERE MIGHT
BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO FURTHER
DELAY THE PROJECTS BEYOND THE

03:35:23.688,03:35:28.795
DATE THAT’S BEING PROPOSED
HERE SHOULD SOMETHING NEWCOMBE
OUT OF THAT, WHICH POTENTIALLY

03:35:28.797,03:35:36.171
COULD FURTHER DELAY THIS
PROJECT TO I GUESS PROBABLY
ANOTHER 45 DAYS BY THE TIME IT

03:35:36.173,03:35:45.346
CAN ACTUALLY MAKE IT BACK TO
COUNCIL, AFTER THIS DATE.
ALTHOUGH I APPRECIATE THE

03:35:45.348,03:35:51.116
INTENT I THINK THE ORIGINAL
DATE OF APRIL THE 18th HAS
BEEN AMENDED TO MAY SOMETHING

03:35:51.118,03:35:57.986
OR ANOTHER WOULD HAVE AT LEAST
PROVIDED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR IT
TO COME BACK WITHIN A

03:35:57.988,03:36:06.531
REASONABLE TIME FRAME, EVEN IF
SOMETHING NEW AROSE OUT OF IT.
SO I’M NOT GOING TO SUPPORT

03:36:06.533,03:36:14.810
THE MAY 9th DATE.
I MIGHT POSSIBLY SUPPORT THE
11th, APRIL 18th DATE BECAUSE

03:36:14.812,03:36:20.476
AT LEAST THEN THAT PROVIDES AN
OPPORTUNITY TO DEAL WITH THIS
IN A RELATIVELY TIMELY FASHION

03:36:20.478,03:36:24.278
BUT I WILL HAVE TO DO SOME
CALCULATIONS HERE TO DETERMINE
WHETHER OR NOT I WILL SUPPORT

03:36:24.280,03:36:28.915
THAT AMENDMENT AS WELL.
THANK YOU.
>> ANYONE ELSE ON THE

03:36:28.917,03:36:35.222
AMENDMENT TO THE AMENDMENT?
ALDERMAN LOWE.
>> YOUR WORSHIP I HAVE NO

03:36:35.224,03:36:38.956
DIFFICULTY WITH MAY THE 9th.
I STARTED OUT THIS
CONVERSATION WITH SAYING TWO

03:36:38.958,03:36:42.933
WEEKS UNTIL THE NEXT ONE WHEN
YOU POINTED OUT QUITE
CORRECTLY THE NEXT COUNCIL

03:36:42.935,03:36:49.750
MEETING IS ACTUALLY A WEEK
AWAY.
THE END RESULT IS THE SAME.

03:36:49.752,03:36:53.646
WE PROVIDE PARTIES WITH AN
OPPORTUNITY AND AS Ms. SLOAN
POINTS OUT IF SOMETHING

03:36:53.648,03:37:02.255
DRASTICALLY NEW ARISES THEN WE
ARE –
OUR DUTY IS VERY CLEAR.

03:37:02.257,03:37:30.877
ALDERMAN,
>> OKAY.
WE ARE BACK.

03:37:30.879,03:37:39.992
AND WE HAVE A MICROPHONE ON.
ITEM 7.2.
VOTE CLOSURE AND LAND USE

03:37:39.994,03:37:48.731
REDESIGNATION.
>> I WAS JUST STARTING TO GET
INTO IT.

03:37:48.733,03:37:52.563
FEELING COMFORTABLE WITH THE
BIG CHAIR.
>> YOUR WELCOME TO STAY.

03:37:52.565,03:37:59.696
ALL RIGHT.
>> GOOD AFTERNOON, YOUR
WORSHIP.

03:37:59.698,03:38:04.570
THIS ITEM IS FOR A ROAD
CLOSURE AND LAND USE
REDESIGNATION LOCATED IN THE

03:38:04.572,03:38:11.883
COMMUNITY OF CRESCENT HEIGHTS,
CONTAINING 0.24 ACRES OF LAND
ADJACENT TO 102 CRESCENT ROAD

03:38:11.885,03:38:16.584
NORTHWEST AND SHOWN ON THE MAP
AS THE AREA OUTLINED IN RED.
THE INTENT OF THE APPLICATION

03:38:16.586,03:38:24.642
IS TO CLOSE A PORTION OF THE
UNDEVELOPED ROADWAY INDICATED
AND REDESIGNATE IT TO RC 1

03:38:24.644,03:38:28.173
RESIDENTIAL DWELLING DISTRICT.
CORPORATE PROPERTIES IS
CURRENTLY IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH

03:38:28.175,03:38:33.210
THE ADJACENT PROPERTY OWNER OF
102 CRESCENT ROAD NORTHWEST
FOR A LAND EXCHANGE AND SALE

03:38:33.212,03:38:37.385
WHICH WOULD INVOLVE THE
EXCHANGE OF A NARROW STRIP ON
THE EAST SIDE OF THE PARCEL

03:38:37.387,03:38:41.945
RUNNING NORTH/SOUTH REQUIRED
BY THE CITY FOR THE BYLAW SET
BACK REQUIREMENTS OF CENTER

03:38:41.947,03:38:47.511
STREET NORTH AND IN RETURN A
PORTION OF THE CLOSURE AREA
ALONG WITH THE PURCHASE OF THE

03:38:47.513,03:38:54.091
REMAINDER WOULD OCCUR.
IF YOU LOOK AT THE LARGE
YELLOW AREAS, THE AREA

03:38:54.093,03:39:08.849
INDICATED TO BE CLOSED, THE
EXCHANGE PORTION IS THE AREA
INDICATED THERE, AREA C.

03:39:08.851,03:39:14.756
GIVING UP A AND B AND GETTING
C, IS THAT WHAT YOU SAID?
>> WE ARE GETTING –

03:39:14.758,03:39:19.421
DESIGNATING AREA B AND WE ARE
GETTING AREA C AS THE
REQUIREMENTS OF A ROAD

03:39:19.423,03:39:27.307
WIDENING.
>> OKAY.
>> YOU CAN SEE THE AREA JUST

03:39:27.309,03:39:33.008
IN THE ORANGE THAT IS THE AREA
OF THE PORTION OF THE ROAD
THAT IS ENCLOSED AND THERE IS

03:39:33.010,03:39:39.247
MORE DETAIL BUT YOU CAN SEE IT
IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE
ABUTTING PROPERTY NEXT DOOR AT

03:39:39.249,03:39:47.977
102 CRESCENT ROAD.
THAT’S THE ACTUAL AREA OF THE
CLOSURE IN BLACK.

03:39:47.979,03:39:52.316
NOW THAT’S THE HOUSE WHICH
WOULD BE THE BENEFICIARY OF
THE LAND.

03:39:52.318,03:39:55.746
THE LANDS ARE JUST OFF THE
SCREEN.
WE’LL HAVE ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPH

03:39:55.748,03:40:08.473
OF THE SOUTH PORTION AND
THAT’S THE ACTUAL AREA
FORCLOSURE AS INDICATED ON THE

03:40:08.475,03:40:16.277
PHOTOGRAPH — FOR CLOSURE.
THERE IS A PATHWAY STAIRS THAT
GOES DOWN CONNECTS ON TO THE

03:40:16.279,03:40:23.802
PATHWAY, THAT IS ABUTTING THE
PROPERTY.
THE PROPOSED CLOSURE AND

03:40:23.804,03:40:29.032
REDESIGNATED ROADWAY WOULD
SUBSEQUENTLY BE CONSOLIDATED
WITH THE LANDS AT 102 CRESCENT

03:40:29.034,03:40:34.665
ROAD NORTHWEST OF THE PROPOSED
LAND USE IS CONSISTENT WITH
THE ABUTMENT AND PARCELS AS

03:40:34.667,03:40:40.195
SUCH.
PLANNING COMMISSION
RECOMMENDED ADOPTION AS WELL

03:40:40.197,03:40:45.663
AS THE REDESIGNATION FROM
UNDESIGNATED ROAD TO RC 1
DISTRICT IN ACCORDANCE WITH

03:40:45.665,03:40:53.239
THE RECOMMENDATION AND ALSO TO
GIVE THREE READINGS TO BYLAW 2
C 2011 AND 16 D 2011.

03:40:53.241,03:40:56.481
THAT CONCLUDES MY
PRESENTATION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

03:40:56.483,03:41:00.544
YOU VERY MUCH.
QUESTIONS OF CLARIFICATION TO
ADMINISTRATION?

03:41:00.546,03:41:06.183
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> THANK YOU YOUR WORSHIP.
Mr. ORR, FROM LOOKING AT THE

03:41:06.185,03:41:12.779
MAP THAT I HAVE HERE, IT LOOKS
LIKE THERE IS FOUR PROPERTIES
THAT WOULD FORM PART OF WHAT

03:41:12.781,03:41:18.522
MIGHT ULTIMATELY BE THE
ULTIMATE ROAD WIDENING
REQUIREMENTS.

03:41:18.524,03:41:34.882
HOW DOES THAT RELATE TO 102?
>> IN THIS INSTANCE, IF YOU
LOOK AT THE MAP, YOU CAN SEE

03:41:34.884,03:41:40.692
THAT THE CLOSED PORTION THAT’S
BEING SURRENDERED IN THIS CASE,
THAT IS THE WHOLE PARAMETERS

03:41:40.694,03:41:45.728
OF THE PARCEL AT 102.
>> IF I LOOKED A LITTLE
FURTHER TO THE NORTH LOOKS

03:41:45.730,03:41:50.363
LIKE THERE IS STILL ANOTHER
PROPERTY THAT WE MAY HAVE TO
NEGOTIATE THOSE SAME SORT OF?

03:41:50.365,03:41:54.742
>> YES.
THAT OF COURSE IS INDEPENDENT
OF THIS APPLICATION.

03:41:54.744,03:41:58.982
>> AND ANYTHING IN THE WORKS
ON THAT?
>> TO MY KNOWLEDGE, NO.

03:41:58.984,03:42:05.850
I’M UNAWARE OF ANYTHING GOING
ON THE PROPERTY TO THE NORTH.
>> WHAT’S THE URGENCY OF

03:42:05.852,03:42:10.058
MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS RIGHT
NOW?
>> THE APPLICATION FOR THE

03:42:10.060,03:42:15.826
CLOSURE INITIATED BY THE OWNER
OF 102, AND THIS IS A GOOD
OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO OBTAIN

03:42:15.828,03:42:20.465
THE FUTURE SETBACK AT THIS
TIME.
AS THE LAND IS CONSIDERED TO

03:42:20.467,03:42:25.608
BE SURPLUS AND NOT REQUIRED BY
PARKS, IT IS A GOOD
OPPORTUNITY TO GET AN EXCHANGE

03:42:25.610,03:42:31.339
AT THIS TIME, SO WE HAVE SOME
SECUREMENT OF THE PROPERTY.
>> SO IT’S AN

03:42:31.341,03:42:35.433
OPPORTUNITY-BASIS TYPE OF
ENDEAVOUR THAT WE ARE
UNDERTAKING.

03:42:35.435,03:42:39.449
SO THEY ARE ACTING ON BEHALF
OF THE APPLICANT?
>> YES.

03:42:39.451,03:42:44.585
>> AND I BELIEVE Mr. WALLACE
IS ALSO HERE ON BEHALF OF THE
APPLICANT AS WELL.

03:42:44.587,03:42:51.827
>> OKAY.
IT SAYS RELOCATION OF ANY
UTILITIES BE IT THE

03:42:51.829,03:42:54.932
APPLICANT’S EXPENSE.
IS THAT THE LANDOWNER OR TRONS
SURVEYS?

03:42:54.934,03:42:57.703
>> THAT WOULD BE THE
REQUIREMENT OF THE LANDOWNER.
>> THANK YOU.

03:42:57.705,03:43:00.339
NO FURTHER QUESTIONS YOUR
WORSHIP.
THANK YOU.

03:43:00.341,03:43:05.966
>> THANK YOU ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ALDERMAN HODGES ON
CLARIFICATION?

03:43:05.968,03:43:10.735
>> YES.
THANKS YOUR WORSHIP.
I THINK THE OBVIOUS QUESTION

03:43:10.737,03:43:18.211
IS WHAT WAS THE RATIONAL FOR
PARKING THE RC 1 DESIGNATION?
>> THE RC 1 DES I GOATION IS

03:43:18.213,03:43:23.154
CONSISTENT WITH THE EXISTING
LAND USE AT THE DWELLING OF
102.

03:43:23.156,03:43:26.450
>> OBVIOUSLY.
SOMEONE PLAN TO BUILD A HOUSE
THERE.

03:43:26.452,03:43:30.946
>> IT’S FOR HIS YARD.
>> I’M PLAYING OUT HERE.
>> GOT YOU.

03:43:30.948,03:43:35.970
>> THERE IS A CONDITION ON THE
SALE AND AGREEMENT THAT THE
PARCEL BE CONSOLIDATED WITH

03:43:35.972,03:43:41.975
THE EXISTING TITLE SO THAT IF
ANY CONSIDERATION WOULD HAVE
TO BE DONE BY SEPARATE

03:43:41.977,03:43:44.276
DIVISION AND DEVELOPMENT
PERMIT.
I DON’T BELIEVE THAT IS THE

03:43:44.278,03:43:49.816
INTENT IN THIS INSTANCE.
>> DO YOU HAVE A PHOTOGRAPH?
I THINK YOU HAD ONE UP A

03:43:49.818,03:43:55.155
MINUTE AGO.
JUST SEE IT FOR A SECOND.
>> OF THE HOUSE.

03:43:55.157,03:44:00.861
>> YOU SHOWED THE PARCEL
ITSELF.
THAT’S THE SUBJECT OF THIS

03:44:00.863,03:44:26.116
APPLICATION.
AND WHAT’S BELOW THE PARCEL
WHERE IT SHOWS ALL THE

03:44:26.118,03:44:29.788
LANDSCAPING AND TREES AND
SHRUBBERY IS THE ESCARPMENT,
CORRECT?

03:44:29.790,03:44:33.460
>> YES.
THERE IS QUITE A STEEP GRADE
CHANGE JUST OFF THE PROPERTY

03:44:33.462,03:44:40.276
TO THE SOUTH.
>> SO THE IDEA IS SOLELY
CONSOLIDATION?

03:44:40.278,03:44:45.186
>> YES.
THAT IS WHAT’S BEING REQUESTED
HERE AND THAT IS WHAT IS BEING

03:44:45.188,03:44:53.187
CONDITIONED AS THE TERM OF
APPROVAL ON THE REDESIGNATION.
>> JUST AN RC-1 PARCEL.

03:44:53.189,03:45:00.893
>> WHILE WE ARE ON THAT TOPIC,
A QUICK QUESTION OF
CLARIFICATION.

03:45:00.895,03:45:05.590
I HAPPENED TO BE ON AS IS MY
HABIT I LIKE TO SEE SOME OF
THESE THINGS AND I HAPPENED TO

03:45:05.592,03:45:10.336
BE ON THIS PIECE OF LAND
YESTERDAY, AND I NOTICED THERE
WAS A SIGN THAT SAID OFF LEASH

03:45:10.338,03:45:17.803
DOG PARK, ALTHOUGH APPARENTLY
IT’S JUST A ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAY.
>> IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT PART

03:45:17.805,03:45:21.706
OF A DOG PARK OR OFF LEASH
AREA.
IT IS A ROAD –

03:45:21.708,03:45:26.749
>> LOOKED LIKE A REAL CITY
SIGN THOUGH.
>> RESPECTFULLY YOUR WORSHIP,

03:45:26.751,03:45:30.990
I WAS OUT THERE TOO, I DON’T
RECALL SEEING THAT.
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN

03:45:30.992,03:45:33.526
INTERESTING SIGHT TO HAVE SEEN
IT.
I DIDN’T SEE ANYTHING WHEN I

03:45:33.528,03:45:36.671
WAS OUT ON THE PROPERTY.
IT’S NOT INTENDED FOR AN OFF
LEASH AREA.

03:45:36.673,03:45:41.607
>> OKAY.
THANK YOU.
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR

03:45:41.609,03:46:14.175
OF THIS PROPOSAL?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN
FAVOUR?

03:46:14.177,03:46:19.106
>> YOUR WORSHIP AND MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL.
MY NAME IS CAMERON WALLACE AND

03:46:19.108,03:46:23.168
I REPRESENT JIM SHAW WHO IS
THE PURCHASER OF THE CITY’S
ROAD ALLOWANCE.

03:46:23.170,03:46:27.711
THE ROAD ALLOWANCE AREA WILL
BE CONSOLIDATED WITH
Mr. SHAW’S SINGLE FAMILY

03:46:27.713,03:46:32.914
PROPERTY THAT IS ADJACENT TO
THE ROAD ALLOWANCE AREA.
THERE ARE TWO PROPOSED USES

03:46:32.916,03:46:39.945
FOR THE ROAD ALLOWANCE.
NUMBER ONE IS THE COMMUNITY
PARK IN THE FRONT AREA NEXT TO

03:46:39.947,03:46:46.552
CRESCENT ROAD.
AND NUMBER TWO IS THE BACK
AREA TO BE RETAINED BY

03:46:46.554,03:46:52.094
Mr. SHAW AS AN EXPANDED SIDE
YARD THAT WILL BE ENHANCED BY
LANDSCAPING.

03:46:52.096,03:46:57.103
THERE WILL NEVER EVER BE
ANOTHER HABITABLE BUILDING ON
THIS ROAD ALLOWANCE AREA

03:46:57.105,03:47:02.472
BECAUSE OF THE SETBACK FROM
THE TOP OF SLOPE.
I MET WITH THE CRESCENT

03:47:02.474,03:47:10.342
HEIGHTS COMMUNITY ON NOVEMBER
THE 16th, 2010, AND ON JANUARY
THE 18th, 2011, I PERSONALLY

03:47:10.344,03:47:15.644
DELIVERED LETTERS TO 19
NEIGHBOURS TO ADVISE THEM OF
THIS PROPOSAL.

03:47:15.646,03:47:20.253
Mr. SHAW HAS PRESENTED THREE
LANDSCAPE OPTIONS TO THE
CRESCENT HEIGHTS COMMUNITY IN

03:47:20.255,03:47:25.494
ORDER TO SOLICIT THEIR
RESPONSES FROM THE COMMUNITY
AND THE NEIGHBOURS ON HOW THEY

03:47:25.496,03:47:33.071
WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE VACANT
AREA LANDSCAPED, AND ALL THIS
IS AT NO COST TO THE CITY, TO

03:47:33.073,03:47:37.478
THE NEIGHBOURS, OR THE
COMMUNITY.
THE TWO CITY APPLICATIONS WERE

03:47:37.480,03:47:43.590
APPROVED UNANIMOUS NEWSLY BY
CALGARY COMMISSION ON DECEMBER
9, 2010.

03:47:43.592,03:47:48.258
ON FEBRUARY THE 7th THESE TWO
APPLICATIONS ARE TABLED BY
CITY COUNCIL FOR FURTHER

03:47:48.260,03:47:56.636
COMMUNITY CONSULTATION.
CRESCENT HEIGHTS COMMUNITY MET
ON MARCH 15th, 2015 –

03:47:56.638,03:48:01.603
I’M SORRY MARCH 15th, 2011 AND
RECONFIRMED THEIR SUPPORT OF
THIS PROJECT.

03:48:01.605,03:48:07.008
I WAS NOT ABLE TO ATTEND THIS
LAST MEETING ON MARCH THE 15th,
2011 BECAUSE I WAS AWAY ON

03:48:07.010,03:48:12.881
VACATION.
MY REQUEST IS FOR CITY COUNCIL
TO APPROVE BOTH APPLICATIONS

03:48:12.883,03:48:20.049
FOR THE ROAD CLOSURE AND THE
LAND USE RECLASSIFICATION TO
RESIDENTIAL BASED UPON FOUR

03:48:20.051,03:48:24.223
BENEFITS.
NUMBER ONE, THE CITY RECEIVES
FUNDS FOR THE UNUSEABLE ROAD

03:48:24.225,03:48:30.094
ALLOWANCE.
NUMBER TWO, THE CRESCENT
HEIGHTS COMMUNITY RECEIVES

03:48:30.096,03:48:34.036
LANDSCAPED COMMUNITY PARK
ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE.
NUMBER THREE IS Mr. SHAW IS

03:48:34.038,03:48:39.144
ABLE TO EXPAND HIS TIGHT SIDE
YARD AND CREATE A BACKYARD
WITH ENHANCED LANDSCAPING.

03:48:39.146,03:48:45.578
AND NUMBER FOUR, MY CLIENT IS
WILLING TO CONTRIBUTE TO
ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING OF THE

03:48:45.580,03:48:50.588
McQUEUE BLUFF SLOPES BY
INSTALLING SOME NATURAL
VEGETATION TO IMPROVE ITS

03:48:50.590,03:48:56.197
APPEARANCE.
THE EXISTING McQUEUE BLUFF
AREA IS OUTSIDE BUT ADJACENT

03:48:56.199,03:49:01.729
TO THE SOUTHBOUNDRY OF THIS
ROAD ALLOWANCE.
ALL OF THESE BENEFITS HAVE NO

03:49:01.731,03:49:08.865
COST TO THE CITY, NEIGHBOURS
OR COMMUNITY.
NOW Mr. WARD DID PRESENT SOME

03:49:08.867,03:49:15.303
PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE AREA, AND I
BELIEVE THERE IS A QUESTION ON
THE OFF LEASH DOG AREA, AND I

03:49:15.305,03:49:28.417
DO HAVE A PHOTOGRAPH WITH A
SIGN THAT I BELIEVE THAT YOU
MENTIONED, YOUR WORSHIP.

03:49:28.419,03:49:34.616
MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE OFF
LEASH DOG AREA IS IT’S SHOWN
GOING DOWN THE STEPS, I

03:49:34.618,03:49:39.215
BELIEVE THERE IS 31 STEPS
THERE, GOING DOWN TO THE
LINEAR PATHWAY THAT EXTENDS

03:49:39.217,03:49:44.724
FROM CENTER STREET STRAIGHT
ACROSS THE McCUE BLUFF AREA.
>> I SEE.

03:49:44.726,03:49:49.764
REFERRING TO SOMETHING DOWN
THE HILL.
THERE SHOULD BE AN ARROW ON IT

03:49:49.766,03:49:52.827
THEN, DARN IT.
ALL RIGHT.
THANK YOU.

03:49:52.829,03:49:56.797
I’M NOT CRAZY.
THERE REALLY IS SUCH A SIGN.
OKAY.

03:49:56.799,03:50:01.237
I STILL MAY BE CRAZY BUT NOT
ABOUT THE SIGN.
>> IN CONCLUSION, YOUR WORSHIP

03:50:01.239,03:50:07.616
AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WHEN
THE WIND CHANGES DIRECTION,
SOME PEOPLE BUILD WALLS AND

03:50:07.618,03:50:12.683
OTHER PEOPLE BUILD WINDMILLS
AND MY HOPE IS THAT THIS
PROJECT WILL BE A WINDMILL FOR

03:50:12.685,03:50:16.857
THE CRESCENT HEIGHTS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION.
THANK YOU FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF

03:50:16.859,03:50:21.733
MAKING A PRESENTATION TO
COUNCIL, AND I WILL LOOK
FORWARD TO YOUR QUESTIONS.

03:50:21.735,03:50:27.730
>> THANKS, Mr. WALLACE.
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> YES, THANK YOU YOUR WORSHIP.

03:50:27.732,03:50:33.934
NO DOUBT YOU SEEN THE LETTER,
E-MAIL REALLY THAT WAS SENT IN
BY Ms. JONES FROM THEIR

03:50:33.936,03:50:39.969
PLANNING COMMITTEE WITH REGARD
TO A CAVEAT.
TO ENSURE IT WILL REMAIN GREEN

03:50:39.971,03:50:43.410
SPACE.
DOES YOUR CLIENT INTEND TO DO
THAT?

03:50:43.412,03:50:49.688
>> MY CLIENT IS PREPARED TO
ACCEPT A RESTRICTIVE COVENANT
THAT WOULD PREVENT ANY

03:50:49.690,03:50:54.253
HABITABLE BUILDING FROM EVER
BEING BUILT THERE.
THE COMMITMENT IS TO MAINTAIN

03:50:54.255,03:50:59.031
GREEN SPACE.
THERE WILL BE A PORTION AT THE
FRONT THAT WILL BE COMMUNITY

03:50:59.033,03:51:04.469
GREEN SPACE AND THE PORTION AT
THE BACK WILL BE GREEN SPACE
THAT’S CONSOLIDATED WITH

03:51:04.471,03:51:11.442
Mr. SHAW’S PROPERTY.
NOW JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA
OF AREA, IT’S APPROXIMATELY

03:51:11.444,03:51:15.864
2500 TO 3,000 SQUARE FEET FOR
THE FRONT COMMUNITY PARK AND
ABOUT 10.000 SQUARE FEET AT

03:51:15.866,03:51:21.643
THE BACK.
>> THE BACK BEING MORE
ADJACENT TOWARDS THE CRESCENT

03:51:21.645,03:51:26.407
ROAD NORTHWEST ADDRESS?
>> THAT’S CORRECT.
THAT SHOULD ACTUALLY READ 102

03:51:26.409,03:51:29.874
CRESCENT ROAD NORTHWEST.
THAT’S THE ADDRESS OF
Mr. SHAW’S PROPERTY.

03:51:29.876,03:51:33.578
>> THAT’S WHAT IS IN OUR
AGENDA HERE.
IS IT THEN –

03:51:33.580,03:51:38.248
IT WOULD BE MAINTAINED –
PART OF IT WOULD BE MAINTAINED
AS GREEN SPACE BUT NOT THE

03:51:38.250,03:51:42.290
PART CLOSEST TO HIS HOUSE, I
WOULDN’T THINK THAT WOULD BE
THE CASE?

03:51:42.292,03:51:47.066
>> Mr. SHAW WOULD MAINTAIN HIS
AREA, THE AREA THAT IS MORE
WHAT WE ARE CALLING MORE OF

03:51:47.068,03:51:54.207
THE A PRIVATE PARK SPACE AND
THE AREA AT FRONT WHICH HAS
NOT BEEN COMPLETELY DESIGNED.

03:51:54.209,03:51:59.075
WE PRESENTED THREE OPTIONS.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE
INPUT OF THE CITY PARKS

03:51:59.077,03:52:03.216
DEPARTMENT AS WELL AS THE
COMMUNITY AND THE NEIGHBOURS,
AND Mr. SHAW WOULD PAY FOR ALL

03:52:03.218,03:52:06.790
THE CAPITAL COSTS OF THAT PARK
CONSTRUCTION.
>> I FIGURED THAT OUT.

03:52:06.792,03:52:10.755
I’M GOOD WITH THAT.
VERY, VERY GOOD.
VERY GOOD GESTURE.

03:52:10.757,03:52:17.767
I’M JUST TRYING TO GET YOU TO
DEFINE WHAT THE RESTRICTIVE
COVENANT WOULD BE ABOUT WOULD

03:52:17.769,03:52:21.668
IT BE ABOUT THE PART THAT’S
PUBLIC.
>> I THINK WHAT Mr. ALDERMAN

03:52:21.670,03:52:26.337
HODGES IS ASKING WOULD THE
LANDOWNER BE INTERESTED IN
HAVING A COVENANT SAYING THE

03:52:26.339,03:52:30.707
PORTION THAT IS PUBLIC GREEN
SPACE WILL ALWAYS REMAIN
PUBLIC GREEN SPACE?

03:52:30.709,03:52:34.343
>> YES.
>> IS THAT WHAT YOU WERE
GETTING AT?

03:52:34.345,03:52:40.652
>> EXACTLY.
>> I THINK I NEED TO CLARIFY
ONE MORE THING, YOUR WORSHIP,

03:52:40.654,03:52:46.592
IS THE PORTION THAT Mr. SHAW
IS PURCHASING IS BEHIND THE
AREA THAT IS GOING TO BE

03:52:46.594,03:52:50.723
PUBLIC.
THERE IS AN AREA AROUND THE
FRONT THAT HAS A SMALL –

03:52:50.725,03:52:55.988
HAS A FIRE HYDRANT, THERE IS
ALSO A POLE THERE, AND THE
CITY OF CALGARY CORPORATE

03:52:55.990,03:52:59.657
PROPERTIES DID NOT WANT THAT
INCORPORATED INTO A PIECE OF
LAND THAT WAS SOLD TO A

03:52:59.659,03:53:02.794
PRIVATE OWNER.
>> THAT WILL REMAIN PUBLIC
LAND.

03:53:02.796,03:53:06.724
>> THAT’S CORRECT.
>> OKAY.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, JUST FOR

03:53:06.726,03:53:10.598
FURTHER CLARIFICATION MAYBE
PUT A PENCIL OR PEN ON THE
VIEW GRAPH.

03:53:10.600,03:53:13.869
>> THIS IS A BIT CONFUSING.
>> SHOW THE EXACT PORTION WE
ARE TALKING ABOUT.

03:53:13.871,03:53:24.707
>> SHOW US WHAT WE ARE TALKING
ABOUT.
EVERYTHING FROM THERE TO THE

03:53:24.709,03:53:31.041
ROAD IS THE PUBLIC PIECE.
>> THAT’S CORRECT.
>> I SEE.

03:53:31.043,03:53:37.961
>> THE AREA RIGHT IN FRONT YOU
MIGHT SAY OF THE DWELLING
THAT’S THERE NOW WOULD BE

03:53:37.963,03:53:41.529
PRIVATE OPEN SPACE I WOULD
THINK.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, EVERYTHING

03:53:41.531,03:53:49.368
FROM THE CORNER OF THE
SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE 102
CRESCENT ROAD, EVERYTHING BACK

03:53:49.370,03:53:54.444
OF THERE WHERE IT SHOWS THE
TREES, EVERYTHING BACK OF
THERE WOULD BE PRIVATE SPACE,

03:53:54.446,03:53:58.446
EVERYTHING WEST OF THERE WOULD
BE PUBLIC SPACE?
>> OKAY, SO THE PUBLIC SPACE

03:53:58.448,03:54:02.086
IS ADJACENT TO THE ROAD
ITSELF?
>> PARDON ME.

03:54:02.088,03:54:05.884
>> ADJACENT TO THE ROAD
ITSELF.
>> IT IS, YES.

03:54:05.886,03:54:09.688
>> I’M SORRY TO TAKE THE TIME
AWAY WHILE YOU ARE SPEAKING
BUT IT MIGHT BE HELPFUL TO PUT

03:54:09.690,03:54:15.561
UP THE PHOTO THAT Mr. ORR HAD
SHOWN FACING EAST AND I THINK
IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE MORE

03:54:15.563,03:54:18.963
CLEAR.
OKAY.
ZOOM IN A LITTLE BIT ON THAT.

03:54:18.965,03:54:24.374
SO WHAT YOU ARE SUGGESTING IS
THAT FROM THE SIDEWALK THAT’S
THERE NOW WHICH IS AT THE TOP

03:54:24.376,03:54:30.522
OF THOSE STAIRS, BACK TO THE
CORNER OF THE HOUSE WOULD BE A
LITTLE HANG OUT SPACE, PUBLIC

03:54:30.524,03:54:35.305
SPACE AT THE TOP OF THE STEPS,
AND THEN IT WOULD BECOME
PRIVATE FROM THERE TO CENTER

03:54:35.307,03:54:39.007
STREET.
>> THAT’S CORRECT.
THAT’S THE AREA APPROXIMATELY

03:54:39.009,03:54:43.608
ABOUT 2500 AND 3,000 SQUARE
FEET DESIGNED FOR A PUBLIC
AREA FOR BENCHES, VIEWING AND

03:54:43.610,03:54:46.906
SO ON.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: OKAY.
GREAT, THANK YOU.

03:54:46.908,03:54:51.008
IMPORTANT TO GET THIS ONE
RIGHT BECAUSE IT IS A BIT
CONFUSING COMPARED TO WHAT WE

03:54:51.010,03:54:54.144
NORMALLY DO.
ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> THANK YOU.

03:54:54.146,03:54:59.782
SO I HAVE A BETTER FROM THE
COMMUNITY PRESIDENT
Mr. McDERMOTT SAYING HELLO

03:54:59.784,03:55:04.356
CAMERON, HAD A MEETING LAST
EVENING AS SCHEDULED AND
MANDATED BY OUR POLICY AND THE

03:55:04.358,03:55:08.122
CRESCENT HEIGHTS COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION WILL RESTATE ITS
SUPPORT FOR THE CHANGE OF USE

03:55:08.124,03:55:13.292
AND DISPOSITION OF THE
CRESCENT ROAD UNDEDICATED ROAD
RIGHT-OF-WAY.

03:55:13.294,03:55:17.189
I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR THE
WORK.
IT SEEMS LIKE A SMALL PROJECT

03:55:17.191,03:55:21.768
BUT I THINK IT HAD A LOT OF
MEANING TO THE COMMUNITY.
HOW WOULD THE RESTRICTIVE

03:55:21.770,03:55:28.037
COVENANT BE IMPLEMENTED?
WOULD THAT BE AT LAND
COMMITTEE WHEN WE –

03:55:28.039,03:55:41.243
Mr. WATSON?
>> THROUGH THE CHAIR, I MEAN
IT’S AT THE –

03:55:41.245,03:55:45.979
ASK TO HELP ME ON THIS, ON THE
LAND COMMITTEE ALREADY.
SITTING AT LAND COMMITTEE

03:55:45.981,03:55:50.814
PENDING WHAT COUNCIL DOES OR
DOESN’T DO.
COULD BE A CONDITION ON THE

03:55:50.816,03:55:56.182
SALE OF THE LAND THAT THAT
WOULD BE DONE, AND I BELIEVE
THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE EITHER

03:55:56.184,03:56:03.317
WHEN THAT COMES THROUGH TO.
IT’S NOT REALLY PART OF –
>> THIS.

03:56:03.319,03:56:07.485
>> PLANNING ASPECT.
WONDERING COULD BE A MOTION
ARISING ASSOCIATED WITH THIS.

03:56:07.487,03:56:12.858
OKAY.
AND THAT WOULD BE ACCEPTABLE
TO YOUR CLIENT?

03:56:12.860,03:56:18.639
>> YOUR WORSHIP, WE RECOGNIZE
THAT THERE IS SOME NERVOUSNESS
ON THE PART OF THE COMMUNITY

03:56:18.641,03:56:26.273
AND THE NEIGHBOURS THAT A
BUILDING COULD BE PUT ON THAT
APPROXIMATELY 66 FOOT BY 200

03:56:26.275,03:56:31.883
FOOT SITE, AND MY CLIENT
Mr. SHAW IS PREPARED TO ACCEPT
THAT RESTRICT THAT THERE WILL

03:56:31.885,03:56:35.448
NEVER BE A HABITABLE BUILDING
ON THAT SITE.
THAT WOULD BE ACCEPTABLE.

03:56:35.450,03:56:39.953
>> IT’S A BIG BUILDING NOW AND
I THINK THEY WERE CONCERNED
THIS WAS JUST PURCHASED TO

03:56:39.955,03:56:46.102
EXPAND THE DWELLING.
OKAY.
THANK YOU.

03:56:46.104,03:56:53.143
>> WHISPERING IN MY EAR SUMP A
COVENANT COULD BE A CONDITION
ON CLOSING.

03:56:53.145,03:56:56.175

SUCH.
>> COULD ALSO BE A CONDITION

03:56:56.177,03:57:00.357
OF ROAD CLOSURE.
CONDITION OF THE PURCHASE AND
SALE OR CONDITION OF ROAD

03:57:00.359,03:57:04.622
CLOSURE OR BOTH.
>> THAT WOULD BE MADE HERE AT
COUNCIL NOT A MOTION ARISING.

03:57:04.624,03:57:09.620
>> IT COULD BE.
OR COUNCIL COULD JUST AS YOU
SUGGESTED DO A MOTION ARISING

03:57:09.622,03:57:16.832
REQUESTING THIS BE DONE
THROUGH LAND COMMITTEE.
>> WE CAN RECOGNIZE THAT AT

03:57:16.834,03:57:20.568
THE APPROPRIATE TIME.
I FEEL LIKE I HAD ANOTHER
QUESTION FOR YOU BUT I FORGOT

03:57:20.570,03:57:25.820
WHAT IT WAS.
YOU PROBABLY ANSWERED IT
ALREADY.

03:57:25.822,03:57:29.023
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE
TODAY.
>> THANKS, YOUR WORSHIP,

03:57:29.025,03:57:33.365
MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.
>> ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK
IN FAVOUR OF THIS PROPOSAL?

03:57:33.367,03:57:38.997
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN
FAVOUR?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST?

03:57:38.999,03:57:53.839
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, MEMBER OF
COUNCIL, WAYNE GODDARD LIVED

03:57:53.841,03:58:02.688
ON THE NORTH SIDE OF CRESCENT
HEIGHTS FOR OVER 30 YEARS.
3.25 DECADES FOR THE AMYTH MAT

03:58:02.690,03:58:07.132
CALI INCLINED.
DURING THOSE YEARS I HAVE COME
TO APPRECIATE THIS QUIETLY

03:58:07.134,03:58:12.400
DIFFERENT SPACE WITH ITS
UNIQUE VIEW NOT SHARED WITH
THE USUAL CRESCENT VIEWPOINT

03:58:12.402,03:58:17.206
MENTIONED IN THE MICHELIN
GUIDE THAT DRAWS TOUR BUSES
AND STRETCH LIMOS SEVERAL

03:58:17.208,03:58:21.971
BLOCKS TO THE WEST OF THIS
SPACE.
FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO NOTICING

03:58:21.973,03:58:25.982
IMPROVEMENTS, AND OVER TIME I
CONTACTED SEVERAL AGENCIES AND
INDIVIDUALS IN AN ATTEMPT TO

03:58:25.984,03:58:32.257
DISCOVER WHO IS MAKING CHANGES
TO PUBLIC PROPERTY.
WHAT I FIRST NOTICED IS THE

03:58:32.259,03:58:37.523
REMOVAL OF 150 FEET OF
SIDEWALK THAT RUNS ALONG JUST
TO THE SOUTH EDGE OF WHERE

03:58:37.525,03:58:42.291
THAT FENCE IS.
EVEN WENT TO THE EXTENT OF
STICKING A PROBE DOWN INTO THE

03:58:42.293,03:58:48.066
GRAVEL MAYBE SOMEONE WAS
PROTECTING A GOOD PIECE OF
CITY INFRASTRUCTURE.

03:58:48.068,03:58:51.834
ALSO THE INSTALLATION OF CHAIN
LINK FENCING ACROSS THE EAST
END.

03:58:51.836,03:58:57.591
DUMPING AND COMPACTING OF A
GRAVEL MIX UP TO 32 INCHES
DEEP NEAR THE FENCE AT THE

03:58:57.593,03:59:04.556
EAST END.
PLANTING OF HEDGE MATERIALS.
ON THE UPPER LEFT WAS TAKEN

03:59:04.558,03:59:07.994
FOR COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
PURPOSES.
IT WAS A FILM TEST BUT BY

03:59:07.996,03:59:16.470
CHANCE IT SHOWS THE END OF THE
SIDEWALK THAT USED TO BE THERE
AND THE RATHER STINK VIEW OFF

03:59:16.472,03:59:25.487
TO THE EAST WHICH NOW I THINK
WOULD SHOW YOU MAYBE WINTER
SUNRISE OVER THE EAST VILLAGE.

03:59:25.489,03:59:31.688
AND THEN WHEN I SAW THE NOTICE
OF THE PLANNED REDESIGNATION
THAT EXPLAINED MUCH OF WHAT MY

03:59:31.690,03:59:36.353
QUESTIONS HAD BEEN, THAT
SOMEBODY WANTED TO EXPAND INTO
THAT TERRITORY.

03:59:36.355,03:59:41.232
BUT THEN I HAD ANOTHER
QUESTION FROM THAT BECAUSE IF
THE REDESIGNATION STARTS FROM

03:59:41.234,03:59:46.005
A ROAD ALLOWANCE, NEW
STRUCTURE NORTH OF THE FENCE
LINE IS ONLY ABOUT FOUR FEET

03:59:46.007,03:59:50.738
FROM THE PROPERTY LINE.
I UNDERSTAND HAD THERE BEEN AN
EXISTING ROAD ALLOWANCE THERE

03:59:50.740,03:59:56.001
THAT NEW STRUCTURE SHOULD HAVE
BEEN SET BACK A BIT FURTHER.
I THINK THERE PROBABLY WAS AN

03:59:56.003,04:00:00.771
INTENTION TO HAVE A ROAD.
THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PRIOR TO
AMALGAMATION WITH CALGARY AND

04:00:00.773,04:00:05.210
THE DROPPING OF CENTER STREET
INTO THE TRENCH SO IT COULD
CONTINUE ON TO THE CAUSEWAY

04:00:05.212,04:00:11.990
ACROSS THE PRESENT CENTER
STREET BRIDGE.
THAT CUT EXTINGUISHED ANY

04:00:11.992,04:00:16.419
POSSIBILITY OF CRESCENT ROAD
CONNECTING TO ANYTHING EAST OF
CENTRE A STREET.

04:00:16.421,04:00:22.256
90 YEARS OF PUBLIC ACCESS HAS
ESTABLISHED WHAT I HAVE SINCE
DISCOVERED IS A RECREATIONAL

04:00:22.258,04:00:28.033
EASEMENT AND ON TOP OF THAT
THERE IS RECOGNITION OF GREEN
SPACE BY SEVERAL CITY

04:00:28.035,04:00:30.867
AGENCIES.
THE MATERIALS I HAVE HERE ARE
COLLECTED FROM BEING ON THE

04:00:30.869,04:00:40.554
CRESCENT HEIGHTS ERP COMMITTEE
15 YEARS AGO AND ATTENDING
VARIOUS WORKSHOPS AND MEETINGS.

04:00:40.556,04:00:49.233
THIS IS A CITY OF CALGARY
PLANNING DEPARTMENT DOCUMENT
THAT SHOWS THAT GREEN SPACE.

04:00:49.235,04:00:58.644
ITEM NUMBER 7 WHICH ON ANOTHER
PAGE IN THAT IS DEFINED AS
PARKS CLASSIFICATION VISUAL

04:00:58.646,04:01:06.409
RELIEF/URBAN BUFFER AREA FOR
EMPHASIS REGIONAL.
AND ON ANOTHER PAGE IN THAT

04:01:06.411,04:01:12.448
ARP DOCUMENT IT NOTES THAT
CRESCENT HEIGHTS ARP COMMITTEE
WOULD NOT CONCERN ITSELF WITH

04:01:12.450,04:01:17.427
McCUE BLUFF.
BLUFF BEING TIED TO SUNNISIDE
ARP AND CITY COUNCIL HAD

04:01:17.429,04:01:22.402
ADOPTED McCUE BLUFF CONCEPT
PLAN WHICH IS TO GUIDE FUTURE
DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA.

04:01:22.404,04:01:27.466
AND THIS IS A QUOTE FROM
SOMEWHERE IN THERE I HAVEN’T
MARKED.

04:01:27.468,04:01:49.415
McCUE BLUFF RESTORATION PLAN.
GREEN SPACE.
ADJACENT TO THE BLUFF.

04:01:49.417,04:01:57.923
AND MAP 1 RESTORATION PLAN
CROSSHATCHING IN THERE, SHOWS
IT AS PART OF McCUE BLUFF

04:01:57.925,04:02:04.028
PARKLAND.
SINCE PORTIONS OF THE
ESCARPMENT HAVE ALREADY BEEN

04:02:04.030,04:02:11.675
SOLD OFF THINKING OF 7th
STREET AND 9A STREET WEST AND
ON THE EAST SIDE 1st STREET

04:02:11.677,04:02:15.439
EAST ALL THE WAY TO EDMONTON
AUSTRALIA THESE ARE NOT
ANYTHING THAT CAN BE RECOVERED

04:02:15.441,04:02:21.169
WHEN IT’S GONE.
TREND APPEARS TO BE STEADY
DECLINE BOTH IN AREA AND

04:02:21.171,04:02:24.338
VARIETY OF INNER CITY GREEN
SPACE.
I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO

04:02:24.340,04:02:32.205
RETAIN THIS UNIQUE SEGMENT AS
PUBLIC PROPERTY AND ESPECIALLY
IMPORTANT IS THAT TO

04:02:32.207,04:02:37.779
APPRECIATE THE DIFFERENCE IN
THE VIEW YOU HAVE TO HAVE
ACCESS TO THE EXTENT OF THIS

04:02:37.781,04:02:42.113
LITTLE PATCH.
AND I MIGHT REMARK THAT I WAS
PRESIDENT –

04:02:42.115,04:02:49.918
PRESIDENT, SORRY, PRESIDENT OF
NOTHING.
PRESENT AT THE MARCH 15

04:02:49.920,04:02:56.589
PLANNING TRAFFIC SUBCOMMITTEE
MEETING AT THE CRESCENT
HEIGHTS ASSOCIATION.

04:02:56.591,04:03:02.536
I REALIZE DON’T HAVE TO GIVE
REASONS FOR THEIR VOTES, BUT I
THINK IT WAS VERY INN

04:03:02.538,04:03:07.038
FORMATIVE OF THE REASONS GIVEN
FOR SELLING OFF THIS BIT OF
PROPERTY.

04:03:07.040,04:03:20.387
I REMINDED MYSELF WHEN I GOT
HOME OF THE MEANING
NON-SECULAR AND ADHONYMON.

04:03:20.389,04:03:28.295
I SINCERELY WILL DO NOTHING
FOR THE DRUG DEALING, PARTYING
LIMOS AND NOISY TOUR BUSES IN

04:03:28.297,04:03:34.075
THE 2 AND 300 BLOCKS TO THE
WEST OF HERE.
AND SOMETHING THAT MAY OR MAY

04:03:34.077,04:03:45.281
NOT BE OF INTEREST TO YOU YOUR
WORSHIP PARK SPACE AND
HOSPITALS EQUIVALENT.

04:03:45.283,04:03:48.291
OUR INNER CITY HOSPITALS HAVE
DISAPPEARED.
WE CAN’T GET THEM.

04:03:48.293,04:03:51.650
MAYBE WE CAN HANG ON TO GREEN
SPACE.
>> THANKS.

04:03:51.652,04:03:58.630
YOUR TIME’S UP.
I THINK THAT I HAVE A QUESTION
FOR YOU BUT ALDERMAN MAR ALSO

04:03:58.632,04:04:01.874
HAS A QUESTION FOR YOU.
>> OKAY.
>> THANK YOU.

04:04:01.876,04:04:08.941
Mr. GODDARD, IS IT.
>> GODDARD.
>> THANK YOU.

04:04:08.943,04:04:17.656
SO MY QUESTION IS GIVEN THAT
THIS IS FAIRLY SMALL BIT OF
LAND WHAT IN YOUR OPINION

04:04:17.658,04:04:21.960
SHOULD BE DONE WITH IT?
JUST LEAVE IT AS IT IS?
>> NO.

04:04:21.962,04:04:28.495
IN ONE OF MY E-MAILS TO PARKS
I ASKED IS THERE SWAY TO FIND
OUT WHO VANDALIZED IT.

04:04:28.497,04:04:35.644
ASK THEM TO PUT IT BACK TO A
DECENT SENSE OF ACCESS AND
THERE WAS VEGETATION

04:04:35.646,04:04:40.050
STRUGGLING UNTENDED THERE.
IT WAS A COURSE GRASS AND
TREES THAT HUNG TOGETHER.

04:04:40.052,04:04:47.954
AND THEY HAVE NOW BEEN
OVERLAID WITH GRAVEL, AND ALL
WEATHER SIDEWALK WHICH WAS

04:04:47.956,04:04:53.232
BETTER CLEARED THAN THE RED
SHELL PATH ALONG THE TOP OF
THE BLUFF WHICH TENDS TO

04:04:53.234,04:04:59.201
FREEZE-UP OR TURN INTO PUDDLES,
DEPENDING ON THE WEATHER, THIS
DEEP PIECE OF CONCRETE WAS

04:04:59.203,04:05:07.409
ALWAYS WALKABLE AND ALTHOUGH I
DIDN’T CHECK THE DATE ON IT,
THE ONE DIRECTLY ACROSS CENTRE

04:05:07.411,04:05:13.607
A STREET HAS A MARKING OF 1945,
AND IF YOU GO A BLOCK FURTHER
WEST AND STILL WITHIN LINE OF

04:05:13.609,04:05:19.240
SIGHT OF THIS PROPERTY, A
SIDEWALK IS MARKED 1910.
GOOD OLD SIDEWALK THAT STAYED

04:05:19.242,04:05:24.344
THERE.
PEOPLE COULD WALK ALONG.
>> YOUR INTENTION OR WHAT YOU

04:05:24.346,04:05:27.817
BELIEVE IT SHOULD BE JUST A
LITTLE BIT OF A SIDEWALK WHERE
PEOPLE CAN WALK DOWN AND

04:05:27.819,04:05:33.912
BASICALLY ENJOY THE VIEW.
>> ESPECIALLY THAT IT IS A
DIFFERENT VIEW AND I THINK

04:05:33.914,04:05:41.656
WHAT ACTUALLY PUT THE BRR
UNDER MY BLANKET THIS WAS A
BREACH DELIVERY OF SOMEONE

04:05:41.658,04:05:44.888
DOING MODIFICATIONS BEFORE
THEY HAD TITLE TO THE
PROPERTY.

04:05:44.890,04:05:48.895
>> OKAY.
>> WHETHER IT WAS THE PRESENT
OWNER OR THE DEVELOPER TRYING

04:05:48.897,04:05:53.602
TO MAKE UP FOR DEFICIENCIES OF
DESIGN IN THAT HUGE NEW
STRUCTURE –

04:05:53.604,04:05:56.407
>> I WILL HAVE SOME OF THOSE
QUESTIONS FOR OUR
ADMINISTRATION.

04:05:56.409,04:06:02.409
BUT I JUST WANTED TO HEAR FROM
YOUR PERSPECTIVE AS A RESIDENT
WHAT YOU WOULD ENVISION AND

04:06:02.411,04:06:05.585
YOU WOULD LIKE IT JUST TO BE
LEFT AS IT IS.
THANK YOU.

04:06:05.587,04:06:09.732
NO FURTHER QUESTIONS.
>> OKAY.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN MAR.

04:06:09.734,04:06:20.264
I HAD A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS
BUT ALDERMAN LOWE FIRST.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

04:06:20.266,04:06:22.629
Ms. SLOAN, A BIT OF AN ODD
QUESTION.
THERE ARE OTHER JURISDICTIONS

04:06:22.631,04:06:29.268
IN BRITISH LAW WHERE A PATHWAY
IS USED FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD
OF TIME ACROSS PUBLIC LANDS,

04:06:29.270,04:06:35.207
IT’S DEEMED TO BE A PATHWAY
AND NOT CLOSEABLE.
DO WE HAVE SUCH A LAW IN THIS

04:06:35.209,04:06:40.090
COUNTRY, AND DOES IT APPLY IN
THIS KIND OF AN ENVIRONMENT?
>> THAT’S THE COMMON-LAW THAT

04:06:40.092,04:06:46.878
APPLIES TO A ROAD AND THERE IS
A NUMBER OF REQUIREMENTS THAT
MUST BE SATISFIED BEFORE

04:06:46.880,04:06:51.212
PRIVATE LAND CAN ACTUALLY
BECOME –
BE CONVERTED INTO QUOTE A

04:06:51.214,04:06:54.481
PUBLIC ROAD.
IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE WHAT
WE ARE DEALING WITH IS AN

04:06:54.483,04:06:57.618
ACTUAL ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAY SO WE
ARE GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS
OF CLOSING A ROAD.

04:06:57.620,04:07:08.059
SO ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT I AM
NOT ENTIRELY CERTAIN ABOUT IS
THE INTENTION OF THE LAND

04:07:08.061,04:07:11.534
DEAL.
BECAUSE I’M NOT PRIVY TO IT.
BUT MY UNDERSTANDING IS THE

04:07:11.536,04:07:15.707
AREA THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF
THE ROAD CLOSURE WILL BE
TRANSFERRED ENTIRELY FOR

04:07:15.709,04:07:23.345
PRIVATE PURPOSES TO THE
ADJACENT OWNER AND SO THERE IS
NO ISSUE OF PUBLIC USE OF

04:07:23.347,04:07:26.012
PRIVATE LAND.
SO WE WOULDN’T HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT THAT.

04:07:26.014,04:07:27.983
DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR
QUESTION.
>> IT DOES.

04:07:27.985,04:07:37.732
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN LOWE.
Mr. GODDARD, THAT CHAIN LINK

04:07:37.734,04:07:41.737
FENCE THAT YOU WERE SHOWING IN
THE PHOTOS, HOW LONG HAS THAT
BEEN UP THERE?

04:07:41.739,04:07:45.110
>> IT HAS BEEN THERE FOR ABOUT
FIVE YEARS.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: IS

04:07:45.112,04:07:49.647
THAT ROUGHLY WHEN THE HOUSE
WAS BUILT.
I DON’T HAVE MY TIME.

04:07:49.649,04:07:57.096
>> I DIDN’T MAKE ANY
PARTICULAR NOTES.
NOTICE THIS IS THE GRAVEL THAT

04:07:57.098,04:08:03.234
COVERED UP THE GRASS, THE SHOT
TO THE LEFT THAT I TOOK,
THAT’S ALMOST KNEE HIGH GRASS

04:08:03.236,04:08:06.833
THAT GREW THERE THAT IS NOW
COVERED UP.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: SEEMED

04:08:06.835,04:08:11.530
PRETTY FLAT WHEN I WAS LOOKING
AT IT.
Mr. WATSON, AM I CORRECT IN

04:08:11.532,04:08:17.029
SAYING THAT WHERE THAT CHAIN
LINK FENCE IS CURRENTLY IS
PUBLICLY OWNED LAND AND THERE

04:08:17.031,04:08:23.935
OUGHT NOT TO BE A PRIVATE
FENCE THERE?
>> I WAS ACTUALLY UP ON THE

04:08:23.937,04:08:30.841
SITE MYSELF A WHILE AGO AND I
BELIEVE THAT’S THE CASE, IT’S
ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE ROAD

04:08:30.843,04:08:35.978
RIGHT-OF-WAY I BELIEVE.
THAT WAS PUT UP, I DON’T
BELIEVE IT WAS PUT UP BY

04:08:35.980,04:08:41.440
OURSELVES.
NOW, I DON’T KNOW WHO PUT IT
UP SO I SHOULDN’T BE SO

04:08:41.442,04:08:46.271
INCLUSIVE ABOUT IT.
BUT IT’S NOT –
IT’S ON PUBLIC PROPERTY.

04:08:46.273,04:08:54.520
>> MYSTERIOUS FENCE PUTTER
UPPER ELVES MAYBE.
YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT.

04:08:54.522,04:08:59.718
MIGHT BE THE DWARFS WHO PUT UP
FENCES.
ALDERMAN MAR?

04:08:59.720,04:09:06.637
SORRY, Mr. GODDARD, WE HAVE
BEEN AT THIS FOR AWHILE.
>> I SUSPECT THE ALIENS THAT

04:09:06.639,04:09:13.844
ABDUCTED THE SIDEWALK RETURNED
THE FENCE AND FOR THEM IT’S
THE SAME SORT OF THING.

04:09:13.846,04:09:20.111
>> ENTIRELY LEGITIMATE THEORY.
>> I THINK IT’S JUST AS VALID
AS SOME OF THE OTHER REASONS.

04:09:20.113,04:09:29.020
>> HE KNOWS TOO MUCH.
>> SOME GENTLEMEN IN BLACK
SUITS MAY NEED TO SEE YOU ON

04:09:29.022,04:09:33.989
THE WAY OUT TODAY.
>> MY CONCERN WHY SO MANY CITY
AGENCIES RECOGNIZE IT AS PARK,

04:09:33.991,04:09:39.729
WHEN IT WANTS TO BE
REDESIGNATED GOES BACK TO A
ROADWAY THAT HASN’T EXISTED

04:09:39.731,04:09:42.898
FOR 990 YEARS.
>> I HERE YOU –
HEAR YOU.

04:09:42.900,04:09:47.900
I THINK I READ THAT YOU WENT
TO WALK YOUR DOG UP THERE.
IS THE ONLY ACCESS TO THIS

04:09:47.902,04:09:53.271
PIECE OF LAND OFF OF THE
DEAD-END OF CRESCENT ROAD, YOU
CAN’T COME AT IT FROM THE EAST

04:09:53.273,04:10:01.963
IN ANY WAY?
>> SLOPE GOES DOWN TO CENTER
STREET WOULD BE A DEATH TRIP

04:10:01.965,04:10:04.732
ON LOOSE GRAVEL.
GOING DOWN THROUGH THE TREES
IS NOT RECOMMENDED UNLESS YOU

04:10:04.734,04:10:08.604
HAVE GOOD INSURANCE ON YOUR
ANKLES.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I WAS

04:10:08.606,04:10:14.374
JUST LOOKING AT TERRAIN MAP
AND THERE IS A TREED SECTION
ALONG CITY STREET.

04:10:14.376,04:10:20.542
LOOKS LIKE THAT’S COMPLETELY
IMPASSEABLE BY FOOT TO COME
DOWN TO THE NORTH.

04:10:20.544,04:10:23.775
>> IT CAN BE.
DOWN IS REASONABLE.
I HAVE A WHOLE STACK OF

04:10:23.777,04:10:27.993
PHOTOGRAPHS BUT I THINK YOU
UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION.
MY CONCERN IS AFTER THE GRAVEL

04:10:27.995,04:10:35.901
WENT ON, THE TREES DOWN TO THE
SOUTH OF THIS ALONG SIDE THE
PAVED PATHWAY CONTINUED DYING.

04:10:35.903,04:10:39.974
ONLY THE WILLOWS ARE STAYING A
BIT.
THE POPULARS ARE ALL DYING.

04:10:39.976,04:10:44.607
AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S A
WATER PROBLEM.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: OKAY.

04:10:44.609,04:10:49.140
THANK YOU.
THAT WAS VERY HELPFUL.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR

04:10:49.142,04:10:51.745
Mr. GODDARD.
THANKS VERY MUCH FOR COMING.
THANK YOU.

04:10:51.747,04:10:56.251
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK
AGAINST THIS PROPOSAL?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN

04:10:56.253,04:10:59.519
OPPOSITION?
THE PUBLIC HEARING THEN IS
CLOSED.

04:10:59.521,04:11:11.833
AND WE’LL GO TO QUESTIONS FOR
ADMINISTRATION.
ALDERMAN MAR?

04:11:11.835,04:11:17.607
>> IS THIS A PARK?
ROADWAY?
BIT OF SCRUB LAND?

04:11:17.609,04:11:24.143
ALIEN –
>> PERHAPS DWARFS OR ELVES.
ENLIGHTEN ME PLEASE.

04:11:24.145,04:11:29.677
>> IT IS A ROAD.
IT FUNCTIONS WITH GRASS ON IT.
BUT OFFICIALLY IT IS A ROAD.

04:11:29.679,04:11:36.647
THE OTHER COMMENT I WOULD MAKE
IS I STATED EARLIER OR NOT,
PARKS WAS CIRCULATED THIS

04:11:36.649,04:11:42.419
APPLICATION AND THEY STATED
THEY DID NOT WANT IT FURTHER
INVENTORY PURPOSES AND HAD NO

04:11:42.421,04:11:46.751
OBJECTION TO THIS BEING
REDESIGNATED FOR THE PURPOSES
OF PRIVATE RESIDENTIAL USE.

04:11:46.753,04:11:56.955
>> OKAY.
NOW THE PREVIOUS SPEAKER,
Mr. GODDARD, HAD A MAP WHICH

04:11:56.957,04:12:06.138
SUGGESTED AT ONE TIME IT WAS
PART OF PARKS AND IT WAS GOING
TO BE UTILIZED AS SOME KIND OF

04:12:06.140,04:12:10.968
PUBLIC AMENITY SPACE.
THAT’S NOT CORRECT.
THAT WAS THE PLAN AT ONE TIME

04:12:10.970,04:12:17.276
AND NO LONGER?
>> BECAUSE THIS WAS A
REDESIGNATION OF A ROADWAY, I

04:12:17.278,04:12:23.489
DON’T BELIEVE ANY FORMAL
CIRCULATION, NO ONE I DON’T
THINK HAD A REAL GOOD LOOK AT

04:12:23.491,04:12:28.059
THE ARP WHEN THIS WAS DONE.
THIS IS JUST A PORTION OF THE
ARP HERE.

04:12:28.061,04:12:41.067
IF YOU LOOK AT THE ACTUAL SITE,
IT JUST SHOWS FOR THE LAND USE
AS BEING FOR RESIDENTIAL

04:12:41.069,04:12:47.174
PURPOSES.
THERE IS NOTHING THERE THAT IS
INCLUSIVE OR DEFINES IT AS

04:12:47.176,04:12:52.652
BEING FOR AN OPEN PARK AREA
AND THIS IS THE ACTUAL
DOCUMENT ASSOCIATED WITH THE

04:12:52.654,04:12:58.225
ARP.
I’M SOMEWHAT SYMPATHETIC TO
WHAT THE RESIDENT IS SAYING,

04:12:58.227,04:13:06.565
BUT EVEN IF THAT WAS INDICATED
ON A MAP I WOULD BE SOMEWHAT
RELUCTANT TO PURSUE IT –

04:13:06.567,04:13:10.402
>> WAS THIS ADOPTED BY THE
CITY OF CALGARY EVER?
>> AS A PARK?

04:13:10.404,04:13:15.273
TO MY KNOWLEDGE NO.
IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A ROADWAY.
IT’S VERY COMMON IN THE CITY

04:13:15.275,04:13:20.717
TO HAVE PIECES OF LAND VERY
MUCH LIKE THIS THAT CAN BE
APPEAR QUITE GREEN AND QUITE

04:13:20.719,04:13:25.223
LUSH, BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY
ROADS.
THEY ARE JUST NOT CURRENTLY

04:13:25.225,04:13:29.784
BEING USED AND THEY HAVE NEVER
BEEN FORMALLY CLOSED.
>> MASTER PARK, FOR EXAMPLE.

04:13:29.786,04:13:35.228
>> FAIR ENOUGH.
>> SO THE QUESTION HERE, I GET
WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, THE

04:13:35.230,04:13:41.697
QUESTION HERE NOW THEN, IS WHO
HAS DONE THESE –
THE IMPROVEMENTS, REMOVING THE

04:13:41.699,04:13:45.097
SIDEWALK?
DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA?
WAS THAT CITY OF CALGARY WHO

04:13:45.099,04:13:50.105
HAD DONE IT OR PARKS?
>> POSSIBLY THE SIDEWALKS,
THAT COULD HAVE BEEN A GENERAL

04:13:50.107,04:13:52.977
MAINTENANCE ISSUE I WOULD
ASSUME BY ENGINEERING AND
ROADS.

04:13:52.979,04:14:00.714
BUT AS FOR THE FENCE, THAT I
COULDN’T MAKE EVEN AN
ASSUMPTION WHO PUT THE FENCE

04:14:00.716,04:14:07.563
UP.
ARGUABLY IT COULD BE A BUFFER
BETWEEN THE OFF LEASH AREA TO

04:14:07.565,04:14:11.441
THE SOUTH AND THE ACTUAL
ROADWAY.
BUT IN TERMS OF WHO PUT IT UP,

04:14:11.443,04:14:15.443
THAT INFORMATION I COULDN’T
TELL YOU.
>> OKAY.

04:14:15.445,04:14:19.197
THOSE ARE FAIR.
I JUST WANTED TO GET CLARITY
AS TO WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS A

04:14:19.199,04:14:25.338
ROAD OR PARK AND YOU HAVE DONE
THAT FOR ME.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

04:14:25.340,04:14:32.730
>> ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> THANK YOU.
WELL, I’M VERY SYMPATHETIC TO

04:14:32.732,04:14:39.075
Mr. GODDARD’S POSITION AND BUT
DESPITE THAT I’M GOING TO
LISTEN TO THE COMMUNITY

04:14:39.077,04:14:44.844
ASSOCIATION ON THIS ONE.
THEY HAVE CONSULTED WIDELY AND
TALKED AT LENGTH WITH THE

04:14:44.846,04:14:53.117
APPLICANT ON WHAT COULD BE A
PUBLIC BENEFIT WHICH IS TO
IMPROVE THE PARK CONDITION ON

04:14:53.119,04:15:02.451
THE TOP OF THE STAIRWAY.
I DO HAVE TO SAY, THOUGH, I’M
ALWAYS DISAPPOINTED WHEN

04:15:02.453,04:15:07.655
CALGARIANS DECIDE THAT THEY
CAN TAKE OVER LAND AND PUT UP
FENCES WHEN IT’S NOT THEIRS.

04:15:07.657,04:15:16.823
SO THAT’S NOT IN ANY WAY TO
REWARD PAST BEHAVIOUR.
I THINK THAT THE BENEFITS TO

04:15:16.825,04:15:21.658
THE COMMUNITY ARE AN ENHANCED
PUBLIC SPACE AT THE TOP OF THE
STAIRWAY, WHICH IS A HEAVILY

04:15:21.660,04:15:27.902
USED STAIRWAY AND COMMUNITY
HAS GONE TO SOME LENGTH IN
ENSURING THAT THIS REMAINS IN

04:15:27.904,04:15:33.475
PUBLIC ACCESS, AND IS AN ASSET
TO THE COMMUNITY.
I WOULD LIKE TO BRING FORWARD

04:15:33.477,04:15:42.125
A MOTION ARISING IF THIS IS
SUCCESSFUL THEN TO TALK ABOUT
A RESTRICTED COVENANT.

04:15:42.127,04:15:46.433
THANK YOU.
>> THANKS.
OTHER QUESTIONS FOR

04:15:46.435,04:15:50.441
ADMINISTRATION?
ALL RIGHT.
VERY WELL THEN.

04:15:50.443,04:15:53.811
WE’LL MOVE TO DEBATE.
ALDERMAN FARRELL, DID YOU WANT
TO MOVE IT.

04:15:53.813,04:15:57.346
YOU DID.
I NEED TO PAY MORE ATTENTION.
DO I HAVE A SECONDER.

04:15:57.348,04:16:01.770
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
ALL RIGHT.
SO WE HAVE GOT IT ON THE

04:16:01.772,04:16:07.482
TABLE.
ANY DEBATE ON THIS?
OH, C’MON.

04:16:07.484,04:16:26.814
ALDERMAN MacLEOD, CAN WE TRADE
PLACES PLEASE?
>> MAYOR NENSHI, WOULD YOU

04:16:26.816,04:16:36.720
LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING?
>> I FIND THIS –
I FIND THIS PARTICULAR

04:16:36.722,04:16:40.723
PROPOSAL PROBLEMATIC FOR A
NUMBER OF REASONS.
ON THE ONE HAND IT’S A SMALL

04:16:40.725,04:16:47.870
PIECE OF LAND, IT’S AN
UNDESIGNATED ROAD OF
RIGHT-OF-WAY THAT WE’LL NEVER

04:16:47.872,04:16:52.460
BUILD A ROAD ON, A LANDOWNER
THAT WOULD GAIN MORE PUBLIC
PERHAPS THE PUBLIC ARE GAINING,

04:16:52.462,04:16:57.131
PERHAPS IN THAT CASE NO REASON
TO VOTE FOR THIS.
ON THE OTHER HAND, I’M NOT

04:16:57.133,04:17:01.902
SURE WHAT THE REASON TO VOTE
FOR IT IS.
BECAUSE AS Mr. GODDARD HAS

04:17:01.904,04:17:06.833
POINTED OUT FOR OVER 90 YEARS
THE PUBLIC HAS USED THIS AS A
PIECE OF GREEN SPACE.

04:17:06.835,04:17:12.412
A FUNNY LITTLE PIECE OF GREEN
SPACE THAT PERHAPS DOESN’T
SERVE A LOT OF PURPOSES BUT A

04:17:12.414,04:17:17.622
PIECE OF GREEN IN THE INNER
CITY.
AND I’M NOT CONVINCED THAT WE

04:17:17.624,04:17:26.366
OUGHT TO BE IN THE PRACTICE OF
GOING TO LANDOWNERS AND SAYING
YOU CAN TAKE AWAY PUBLIC GREEN

04:17:26.368,04:17:32.942
SPACE AS LONG AS YOU GIVE US A
FEW BENCHES IN RETURN.
AND THIS IS SOMEWHAT

04:17:32.944,04:17:37.081
CHALLENGING FOR ME.
I’M A BIG FAN OF REDEVELOPMENT
AS YOU ALL KNOW.

04:17:37.083,04:17:43.286
THIS IS NOT THAT.
THIS IS TRANSFERRING SOME
GREEN SPACE FROM KIND OF UGLY

04:17:43.288,04:17:47.026
PUBLIC GREEN SPACE TO
ATTRACTIVE PRIVATE GREEN SPACE
WITH A FEW BENCHES THROWN IN

04:17:47.028,04:17:51.559
FOR THE PUBLIC.
SO GIVEN THAT, I’M NOT
ENTIRELY CONVINCED WHY WE

04:17:51.561,04:17:59.949
OUGHT TO BE DOING THIS AND THE
QUESTION THAT I REALLY WOULD
HAVE IS DOES THIS LEAD TO A

04:17:59.951,04:18:03.749
SITUATION WHERE OTHER
LANDOWNERS ADJACENT TO LAND
WHICH NOTHING WILL BE BUILT

04:18:03.751,04:18:08.016
COULD HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO
SAY SELL ME THAT LAND SO I
COULD HAVE A BIGGER BACKYARD

04:18:08.018,04:18:12.954
TO PRIVATIZE THE SPACE.
YOU KNOW, I HAPPEN TO LIVE IN
A NEIGHBOURHOOD THAT HAS A

04:18:12.956,04:18:17.898
VERY LARGE SCHOOL SITE
SURROUNDED BY HOMES, AND THERE
WILL NEVER BE A SCHOOL ON THAT

04:18:17.900,04:18:21.767
LAND.
GIVEN THAT IT’S NOT REALLY A
PARK COULD WE IMAGINE A WORLD

04:18:21.769,04:18:26.703
WHERE THE LANDOWNERS OF CORAL
SPRINGS WOULD SAY I WANT A
MUCH BIGGER BACKYARD AND YOU

04:18:26.705,04:18:32.682
SHOULD GIVE ME THAT SURPLUS
SCHOOL SITE FOR THAT PURPOSE?
I DON’T WANT TO SUGGEST THAT

04:18:32.684,04:18:35.714
WE ARE ON A SLIPPERY SLOPE
HERE.
THIS IS A SMALL PIECE OF LAND

04:18:35.716,04:18:41.849
IN A VERY UNIQUE SITUATION.
BUT DO I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT
THAT I’M UNCOMFORTABLE WITH

04:18:41.851,04:18:47.990
THIS IN TERMS OF SENDING A
FUTURE MESSAGE BECAUSE I
REALLY DON’T SEE A VERY, VERY

04:18:47.992,04:18:59.726
GOOD REASON TO DO THIS.
>> THANK YOU, MAYOR NENSHI.
ALDERMAN LOWE?

04:18:59.728,04:19:07.861
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
TO RESPOND TO YOUR WORSHIP,
THE COMMENT THAT THERE IS A

04:19:07.863,04:19:12.850
VERY GOOD REASON TO DO THIS.
THIS IS NOT PRECEDENT SETTING.
THERE IS A GOOD REASON TO DO

04:19:12.852,04:19:17.654
THIS.
THIS IS NOT PRECEDENT SETTING
THAT WE DO THIS ALMOST TO THE

04:19:17.656,04:19:25.454
MATTER OF COURSE OF REMNANT
PIECES OF LAND THAT ARE
REMOVED FROM CITY INVENTORY,

04:19:25.456,04:19:30.434
ATTACHED TO PRIVATE DWELLINGS
FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS, NOT
THE LEAST OF WHICH IS PIECE OF

04:19:30.436,04:19:35.016
ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAY THAT CANNOT
FUNCTION AS A ROAD
RIGHT-OF-WAY, WILL NEVER

04:19:35.018,04:19:38.719
FUNCTION AS A ROAD
RIGHT-OF-WAY AND THERE IS A
BENEFIT TO CALGARIANS, RATHER

04:19:38.721,04:19:43.551
THAN GETTING A PIECE OF SCRUFF
LAND WHICH PARKS DON’T WANT TO
MAINTAIN, AND ROADS DOESN’T

04:19:43.553,04:19:49.090
WANT TO MAINTAIN, WE ARE GOING
TO GET, AS YOU SUGGEST, I’M
GOING TO PUT A DIFFERENT SPIN

04:19:49.092,04:19:53.492
ON IT, GET A PIECE OF LAND
WITH VIEWING BENCHES AND SOME
ENHANCED MAINTENANCE WHICH IS

04:19:53.494,04:19:58.833
A BENEFIT TO THIS COMMUNITY
AND TO THE CITY OF CALGARY.
SO FOR THAT REASON ALONE, I

04:19:58.835,04:20:03.274
WILL SUPPORT IT.
YOU MENTIONED SCHOOL SITES.
THEY ARE DIFFERENT.

04:20:03.276,04:20:08.139
DIFFERENT SET OF RULES.
BIGGER PIECES OF LAND.
IMMENSE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

04:20:08.141,04:20:13.747
CITY IF THOSE PIECES OF LAND
BECOME AVAILABLE.
SO FOR THOSE REASONS YOUR

04:20:13.749,04:20:16.090
WORSHIP, I WILL SUPPORT THIS
AND I WILL ASK YOU TO SUPPORT
IT.

04:20:16.092,04:20:25.802
THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN LOWE.
ALDERMAN CHABOT?

04:20:25.804,04:20:32.811
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
I TOO WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS
APPLICATION FOR THE SAME

04:20:32.813,04:20:37.794
REASONS ALDERMAN LOWE STATED
AS WELL AS FOR THE POTENTIAL
OF ACTUALLY SAVING ON

04:20:37.796,04:20:42.825
OPERATIONAL COSTS SHOULD WE
DECIDE NOT TO MOVE FORWARD
WITH THIS AND THEN MOVE

04:20:42.827,04:20:47.321
FORWARD ON INCREASED
MAINTENANCE FOR THESE LANDS,
ULTIMATELY THE RESPONSIBILITY

04:20:47.323,04:20:52.254
WOULD BE OURS, THE COSTS WOULD
BE BORNE BY THE CITY AND
FURTHERMORE, OPPORTUNITY TO

04:20:52.256,04:20:58.023
ACQUIRE ROAD WIDENING, ROAD
RIGHT-OF-WAY THAT HAS
OBVIOUSLY BEEN IDENTIFIED BY

04:20:58.025,04:21:04.164
THE ROADS DEPARTMENT AS A
FUTURE NEED, AND SO THERE IS
SOME LOSS OF LANDS FROM THE

04:21:04.166,04:21:08.936
ADJACENT OWNER TO ACCOMMODATE
FUTURE NEEDS FOR THE CITY,
FUTURE MUNICIPAL PURPOSES, AND

04:21:08.938,04:21:13.267
REDUCED COSTS.
AND WE HAVE DONE THIS IN THE
PAST ON AN OPPORTUNITY BASIS,

04:21:13.269,04:21:20.471
AND I THINK THIS IS A WIN/WIN
SITUATION.
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN CHABOT.

04:21:20.473,04:21:24.708
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> YES, THANK YOU, YOUR
WORSHIP.

04:21:24.710,04:21:29.382
I APPRECIATE MAYOR NENSHI
LEAVING THE CHAIR TO DEBATE
THIS BECAUSE HE SAID EXACTLY

04:21:29.384,04:21:34.420
WHAT I WAS THINKING.
THE TROUBLE WITH THIS REPORT
IS THERE IS NO RATIONAL FOR

04:21:34.422,04:21:40.621
THIS METHOD OF DISPOSITION.
THE NORMAL PROCESS AS I’M
AWARE OF IT OVER THE YEARS,

04:21:40.623,04:21:47.897
AND I HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING IN
THIS REPORT THAT WOULD SUGGEST
OTHERWISE, WHY IT’S NOT BEING

04:21:47.899,04:21:53.768
OFFERED AS A LANDSCAPE LEASE.
THE CITY HAS OFFERED MANY
VACANT PARCELS EITHER

04:21:53.770,04:21:59.265
RESIDENTIAL OR UNDEVELOPED
ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAY AS LANDSCAPE
LEASES FOR FIVE, TEN OR 15

04:21:59.267,04:22:11.137
YEARS, AND YES, THERE IS A
PAYMENT TO THE CITY BY THE
PERSON LEASING TO HAVE A

04:22:11.139,04:22:16.744
LANDSCAPE LEASE THAT HE OR SHE
CAN CONTROL AND WHICH THE
NEIGHBOURS DON’T THINK IS A

04:22:16.746,04:22:21.443
PLACE TO PARK SURPLUS
VEHICLES.
SO THAT I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT

04:22:21.445,04:22:26.124
WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING TO
BE DISCUSSED IN THIS AND DEALT
WITH IN THIS REPORT.

04:22:26.126,04:22:35.066
SO WHAT WE HAVE IS A POLICY
CHANGE WITHOUT ANY RATIONAL
FOR WHY THE DE CTO POLICY

04:22:35.068,04:22:38.340
CHANGE.
TIP OFF IS THE DESIGNATION OF
RC-1.

04:22:38.342,04:22:44.444
THAT ISN’T, I THINK, A
STANDARD OR SHOULDN’T BE A
STANDARD PRACTICE EITHER.

04:22:44.446,04:22:49.053
I CAN THINK OF A COUPLE OF
OTHER DESIGNATIONS FOR IT, BUT
THAT’S NOT WHAT’S BEFORE US.

04:22:49.055,04:22:53.882
SO I THINK IF IT WAS A
LANDSCAPE LEASE I WOULDN’T
HAVE A PROBLEM.

04:22:53.884,04:22:58.382
AND THERE IS ALWAYS A FINITE
TIME ON A LANDSCAPE LEASE BUT
THAT’S NOT THE CASE HERE.

04:22:58.384,04:23:03.600
THIS IS AN OUTRIGHT
DISPOSITION WHICH I PRESUME
WOULD BE A LAND COMMITTEE ONE

04:23:03.602,04:23:14.815
DAY HERE SOON HOPEFULLY.
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN HODGES.
ALDERMAN FARRELL?

04:23:14.817,04:23:19.915
ALDERMAN CARRA?
>> THANK YOU YOUR WORSHIP.
I APPRECIATE THE DEBATE ON

04:23:19.917,04:23:24.710
THIS.
I AGREE WITH ALDERMAN LOWE,
THAT I DON’T THINK THIS IS

04:23:24.712,04:23:34.332
PRECEDENT SETTING.
AND ALONG THOSE LINES, I JUST
WANT TO SORT OF RIFF ON THE

04:23:34.334,04:23:37.938
DISCUSSION THAT HIS WORSHIP
BROUGHT UP IN TERMS OF WHAT’S
HAPPENING HERE.

04:23:37.940,04:23:42.448
I PERSONALLY THINK THAT WE
HAVE A LOT OF GREEN SPACE IN
THE INNER CITY THAT WE SHOULD

04:23:42.450,04:23:48.882
FOCUS ON INTENSIFYING AND THAT
MIGHT INVOLVE FINDING SMALL
DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN

04:23:48.884,04:23:53.281
ORDER TO ENHANCE THE QUALITY
OF THE REST OF THE SPACE.
AND I REALIZE THAT THIS ISN’T

04:23:53.283,04:23:59.010
SORT OF THE SAME DEBATE.
BUT I DO THINK IT DOESN’T
REALLY APPLY TO PERHAPS THE

04:23:59.012,04:24:03.813
SAME EXTENT THAT THE SCHOOLS
ZONE IN CORAL SPRINGS DOES.
I DON’T THINK THAT WE SHOULD

04:24:03.815,04:24:09.916
BE FIXATED ON QUANTITY.
I THINK WE SHOULD BE A LOT
MORE FIXATED ON QUALITY.

04:24:09.918,04:24:14.556
AND I THINK THAT’S A RECURRING
THEME FROM THE LAST ISSUE THAT
WE TALKED ABOUT.

04:24:14.558,04:24:19.616
SO I’M PREPARED TO SUPPORT
THIS AND I HOPE THAT THE
PUBLIC SPACE THAT’S CARVED OUT

04:24:19.618,04:24:23.852
AT THE TOP OF THE HILLSIDE IS
A SPECTACULAR LITTLE JEWEL OF
A SPACE.

04:24:23.854,04:24:30.528
THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU.
ALDERMAN FARRELL TO CLOSE.

04:24:30.530,04:24:33.431
>> THANK YOU.
I HAVE TO SAY THAT I STRUGGLED
WITH THIS ONE WHEN I WAS FIRST

04:24:33.433,04:24:39.335
APPROACHED WITH THE IDEA.
AND MY INITIAL INCLINATION
WOULD HAVE NOT –

04:24:39.337,04:24:42.971
WOULD HAVE BEEN TO NOT SUPPORT
IT.
BUT THE COMMUNITY WORKED WITH

04:24:42.973,04:24:53.285
THE APPLICANT CLOSELY AND THEY
SEE A VALUE IN IT.
SO I FELT OBLIGATED TO SUPPORT

04:24:53.287,04:24:58.726
THEM BECAUSE OF THAT WORK THAT
THEY HAVE DONE.
I WAS VERY, VERY MUCH INVOLVED

04:24:58.728,04:25:05.624
IN THE McHUGH BLUFF MASTER
PLAN AS VOLUNTEER FOR
HILLHURST SUNNISIDE.

04:25:05.626,04:25:13.338
AND THAT HAS BEEN AN UNFUNDED
PLAN FOR MANY DECADES.
MANY THE MEANTIME THIS AREA

04:25:13.340,04:25:17.169
DETERIORATES SIGNIFICANTLY.
AND THE CITY SELLS RESIDUAL
PROPERTIES THAT MAY APPEAR

04:25:17.171,04:25:22.171
LIKE GREEN SPACE, BUT ARE NOT
GREEN SPACE AND WE SELL THEM
ALL THE TIME, AND THAT’S TO

04:25:22.173,04:25:28.986
HELP US PAY FOR THE MANY
THINGS THAT WE NEED THAT
FUNDING FOR.

04:25:28.988,04:25:38.927
IS IT FUND 69 AND IT’S FOR
FUTURE ROAD PROJECTS OR OTHER
MUNICIPAL PROJECTS THAT

04:25:38.929,04:25:44.412
REQUIRE A CONSTANT INFLUX OF
DOLLARS.
SO THAT’S WHY WE ARE SEEKING

04:25:44.414,04:25:53.143
OUT UNDESIGNATED ROAD OF
RIGHT-OF-WAYS AND THINGS THAT
ARE NOT PARK DESIGNATED SPACES

04:25:53.145,04:26:00.620
TO FUND OTHER NEEDS.
SO I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY
COUNCIL FEELS A BIT VAGUE

04:26:00.622,04:26:04.259
ABOUT THIS ONE.
IN A WAY I DO TOO BUT I WILL
SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY BECAUSE

04:26:04.261,04:26:07.763
I THINK THEY PUT A HUGE AMOUNT
OF WORK INTO IT.
THANK YOU.

04:26:07.765,04:26:13.044
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN
FARRELL.
ON THE –

04:26:13.046,04:26:16.986
THERE IS NOBODY ELSE TO SPEAK.
SO ON THE RECOMMENDATION ARE
WE AGREED?

04:26:16.988,04:26:45.773
OPPOSED?
TWO OPPOSED.
>> BEAR WITH ME.

04:26:45.775,04:26:56.149
ON THE DLAU TO THE PROPOSED
CLOSURE, ROAD CLOSURE 2 C
20011 ON FIRST READING ARE WE

04:26:56.151,04:27:07.790
AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?
CARRIED.

04:27:07.792,04:27:12.189
ON SECOND READING ARE WE
AGREED?
OPPOSED?

04:27:12.191,04:27:17.759
SAME DIVISION.
AUTHORIZATION FOR THIRD
READING, ARE WE AGREED?

04:27:17.761,04:27:23.004
OPPOSED?
CARRIED.
AND THIRD READING, ARE WE

04:27:23.006,04:27:30.608
AGREED?
OPPOSED?
SAME DIVISION.

04:27:30.610,04:27:42.885
CARRIED.
ON THE LAND USE TO GIVE THREE
READINGS TO THE BYLAW 16 D,

04:27:42.887,04:27:48.853
2011 FIRST READING, ARE WE
AGREED?
OPPOSED?

04:27:48.855,04:27:52.748
MAYOR NENSHI AND ALDERMAN
HODGES.
CARRIED.

04:27:52.750,04:28:09.745
SECOND READING, ARE WE AGREED?
>> CAN I ASK A QUESTION?
>> APPARENTLY NOT.

04:28:09.747,04:28:21.329
>> AFTER THE FIRST READING,
YOU CAN’T ASK –
YOU CAN’T DO AN AMENDMENT.

04:28:21.331,04:28:26.330
>> I WILL ALLOW YOU TO SPEAK
IF YOU TELL ME WHAT IT IS YOU
WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT BEFORE YOU

04:28:26.332,04:28:36.792
DO.
>> I APOLOGIZE TO EVERYBODY
FOR MY LACK OF MANNERS.

04:28:36.794,04:28:40.273
SKILL.
OKAY.
MY APOLOGIES FOR NOT JUMPING

04:28:40.275,04:28:45.448
UP RIGHT AFTER FIRST READING.
BEAR WITH ME.
ONLY QUESTION THE RC-1, CAN WE

04:28:45.450,04:28:52.953
DO SOMETHING TO ALLOW
SECONDARY SUITE TO EVOLVE
THERE IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME.

04:28:52.955,04:28:58.295
R 1 F.
WHY CAN I NOT DO THAT?
>> YOUR WORSHIP THAT WOULD BE

04:28:58.297,04:29:03.335
AN ADDITIONAL USE ADDED TO THE
LAND USE AND REQUIRES
READVERTISEMENT AND ANOTHER

04:29:03.337,04:29:09.273
PUBLIC HEARING.
>> IT’S NOT THE WHOLE THING.
CAN I DO AN AMENDMENT

04:29:09.275,04:29:14.016
REQUESTING THAT THEY DO THAT
AS WHEN THEY DO THE
CONSOLIDATION?

04:29:14.018,04:29:18.223
>> THAT WOULD BE A MOTION
ARISING.
>> THAT WOULD BE A MOTION

04:29:18.225,04:29:21.089
ARISING.
OKAY.
I WILL TAKE THAT UNDER

04:29:21.091,04:29:26.264
ADVISEMENT.
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT.
ON SECOND READING, ARE WE

04:29:26.266,04:29:32.495
AGREED?
OPPOSED?
SAME DIVISION.

04:29:32.497,04:29:38.379
ON AUTHORIZATION FOR THIRD
READING, ARE WE AGREED?
OPPOSED?

04:29:38.381,04:29:43.005
AND THIRD READING, ARE WE
AGREED?
OPPOSED?

04:29:43.007,04:29:48.240
SAME DIVISION.
NOW CAN MAYOR TAKE –
NO.

04:29:48.242,04:29:53.076
YOU HAVE TO STAY.
IT’S NICE CHAIR.
IT’S SMALL.

04:29:53.078,04:29:58.253
THERE IS A FOOTSTOOL THERE,
TOO.
OKAY.

04:29:58.255,04:30:02.559
MOTION ARISING.
ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> THANK YOU.

04:30:02.561,04:30:06.422
SO Ms. SLOAN, HOW WOULD I WORD
THAT?
IT WOULD BE AT LAND COMMITTEE,

04:30:06.424,04:30:18.921
WOULD IT NOT, THAT REQUESTS
THAT COUNCIL DIRECT THE
ADMINISTRATION TO IMPOSE A

04:30:18.923,04:30:21.122
COVENANT?
>> YES.
AS A CONDITION OF THE PURCHASE

04:30:21.124,04:30:28.588
AND SALE AGREEMENT OR THE LAND
EXCHANGE, THAT A RESTRICTIVE
COVENANT BE REGISTERED ON

04:30:28.590,04:30:35.637
TITLE TO THE CLOSURE PORTION
PRIOR TO THE TRANSFER.
AND WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU

04:30:35.639,04:30:41.142
WANT IT TO RESTRICT.
ANY DEVELOPMENT BEYOND
LANDSCAPING OR I HEARD EARLIER

04:30:41.144,04:30:44.509
THAT THEY WERE PREPARED TO
ACCEPT A RESTRICTION OF NO
HABITABLE BUILDINGS.

04:30:44.511,04:30:48.909
DID YOU WANT TO KEEP IT THAT
GENERAL OR DO YOU WANT TO BE
VERY SPECIFIC THAT ONLY

04:30:48.911,04:30:53.314
LANDSCAPING IS ALLOWED.
>> I THINK THE INTENT FROM
WHAT I HEARD IT WOULD BE ONLY

04:30:53.316,04:30:57.216
LANDSCAPING.
SO, YES.
>> YES.

04:30:57.218,04:31:03.095
THEN I WOULD SUGGEST MOTION
ARISING THAT DIRECTION BE
GIVEN TO LAND COMMITTEE.

04:31:03.097,04:31:32.189
>> MIGHT NEED A MINUTE TO
WRITE THAT ONE OUT.
>> OKAY.

04:31:32.191,04:31:38.359
ALDERMAN LOWE?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, I’M QUITE
PREPARED TO SUPPORT THE MOTION

04:31:38.361,04:31:40.726
ARISING.
I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT
THOUGH THAT I THINK IN

04:31:40.728,04:31:49.006
SUPPORTING THAT, WE NEGATE ANY
ATTEMPT TO HAVE A SECONDARY
SUITE IN ANYTHING EXCEPT THE

04:31:49.008,04:31:55.543
PRIMARY BUILDING.
BECAUSE THE VOTE WE ARE DOING
IS SAYING NO INHABITABLE

04:31:55.545,04:32:00.247
CONSTRUCTION ON THIS PIECE OF
LAND, IF I UNDERSTAND IT OR
RESTRICT IT TO LANDSCAPING,

04:32:00.249,04:32:06.089
HOWEVER WE PHRASE IT.
THE NEXT ONE ABOUT THE SECOND
SUITE COULD HAVE TO BE

04:32:06.091,04:32:11.527
CAREFULLY WORDED, IF I
UNDERSTAND IT CORRECTLY, YOUR
WORSHIP.

04:32:11.529,04:32:18.412
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT,
ALDERMAN LOWE.
ALDERMAN CARRA, ARE YOU GOING

04:32:18.414,04:32:22.686
WITH THE NEXT MOTION OR ARE
YOU SPEAKING TO THIS ONE?
>> MY QUESTION WAS SORT OF IN

04:32:22.688,04:32:26.956
THAT REGARD.
I THINK IT’S INTERESTING WE
HAVE REACHED THIS POINT.

04:32:26.958,04:32:38.001
I THINK THIS IS A PRIME
CANDIDATE FOR A LARGE PROPERTY
THAT COULD USE A SECONDARY

04:32:38.003,04:32:42.297
SUITE AND I WOULD JUST BE VERY
INTERESTED TO KNOW WHY WE
DIDN’T SORT OF PURSUE THAT AS

04:32:42.299,04:32:48.667
PART OF THIS EXPANSION OF A
BIG RC-1 PROPERTY THAT’S
LITERALLY THREE MINUTE WALK

04:32:48.669,04:32:54.815
FROM THE DOWNTOWN.
AND UNDERSTANDING THAT
Mr. SHAW MIGHT NOT BE DESIROUS

04:32:54.817,04:33:01.082
OF HAVING A SECONDARY SUITE IN
HIS HOME, BUT THERE IS
POSSIBLY THAT FUTURE OWNERS

04:33:01.084,04:33:04.918
MAY COME AND GO, AND IT JUST
SEEMS TO ME LIKE A PERFECT
PLACE TO HAVE THAT

04:33:04.920,04:33:14.523
FLEXIBILITY.
SO I GUESS THAT’S A QUESTION.
I GUESS I WILL WORD IT AS A

04:33:14.525,04:33:17.994
QUESTION.
WHY WAS THAT NOT DISCUSSED AS
THIS CAME THROUGH?

04:33:17.996,04:33:24.134
>> OKAY.
I ACTUALLY AM UNCERTAIN IF
THAT’S REALLY PART OF WHAT

04:33:24.136,04:33:29.693
THIS MOTION IS ABOUT BUT I
WILL DEFER IT TO SEE IF WE CAN
GET AN ANSWER.

04:33:29.695,04:33:36.834
>> THE RC-1 DOES NOT ALLOW
SECONDARY SUITES, AND THIS
WOULD HAVE GONE THROUGH AS A

04:33:36.836,04:33:39.402
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT SOMETIME
AGO.
I’M NOT SURE WHEN IT WAS

04:33:39.404,04:33:46.977
ACTUALLY –
Mr. GODDARD POINTED OUT TWO OR
THREE YEARS AGO, WE WEREN’T

04:33:46.979,04:33:50.479
HAVING THOSE KIND OF
DISCUSSIONS ABOUT SECONDARY
SUITES AT ANYWHERE NEAR THE

04:33:50.481,04:33:56.284
KIND OF VOLUME WE ARE TODAY.
SO IT SIMPLY WOULD HAVE BEEN A
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT FOR THAT

04:33:56.286,04:34:02.056
WAS AN OLDER HOUSE ON THE LAND,
THE LAND, IT BURNED DOWN,
VACANT PIECE OF PROPERTY,

04:34:02.058,04:34:06.326
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT, BUILDING
PERMIT, WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ANY
DISCUSSION ABOUT SECONDARY

04:34:06.328,04:34:10.202
SUITE.
WE DON’T DISCUSS SECONDARY
SUITE EVERY TIME THERE IS A

04:34:10.204,04:34:15.699
PARCEL THAT COMES THROUGH FOR
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT OR A
BUILDING PERMIT.

04:34:15.701,04:34:21.469
>> SO I GUESS MY QUESTION
WOULD BE –
SO I GUESS THE ATTEMPT IS TO

04:34:21.471,04:34:26.447
SORT OF CONNECT THIS, EXACT
SAME LAND USE AS THE HOST
PROPERTY AND THEN DO THE

04:34:26.449,04:34:30.956
CONSOLIDATION AND THERE IS NO
REAL MECHANISM WE HAVE AT OUR
DISPOSAL TO CONSIDER PUTTING

04:34:30.958,04:34:47.692
AN S DESIGNATION ON THE END?
>> AS ALDERMAN LOWE POINTED
OUT WITH THE MOTION OF RISING

04:34:47.694,04:34:51.705
COMING THAT WILL RESTRICT THAT
TO GREEN.
CAN’T PUT ANY BUILDING ON

04:34:51.707,04:34:54.141
THAT.
THE OTHER PARCEL IS NOT BEFORE
YOU TODAY.

04:34:54.143,04:35:00.708
THE HOUSE THAT IS ADJACENT TO
IS NOT THE SUBJECT OF THIS
APPLICATION.

04:35:00.710,04:35:06.455
IN FACT, I DON’T THINK YOU CAN
REALLY EVEN MAKE A MOTION
REGARDING IT.

04:35:06.457,04:35:08.692
>> ALL RIGHT.
THANKS.
>> MY OPINION.

04:35:08.694,04:35:14.870
>> I’M MORE INTERESTED IN JUST
PUTTING THAT THOUGHT BUBBLE
OUT THERE THAN I THINK

04:35:14.872,04:35:29.279
ACTUALLY PURSUING THIS.
>> Mr. WALLACE CAN CERTAINLY
TAKE THAT MESSAGE BACK.

04:35:29.281,04:35:34.548
>> OKAY, SO BEFORE WE MOVE ON
TO THE NEXT SPEAKER, DO YOU
HAVE THE MOTION.

04:35:34.550,04:35:37.956
>> LAND COMMITTEE BE DIRECT
TODAY REQUIRE THAT A
RESTRICTED COVENANT BE

04:35:37.958,04:35:42.766
REGISTERED ON TITLE TO THE
ROAD CLOSURE AREA PRIOR TO
TRANSFER OF TITLE PROHIBITING

04:35:42.768,04:35:47.041
THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANY PORTION
OF THE CLOSURE AREA WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF LANDSCAPING.

04:35:47.043,04:35:52.623
THE RESTRICTED COVENANT WOULD
BE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE
ADJACENT CITY OWNED PARCEL AND

04:35:52.625,04:35:58.197
ROAD.
>> THANK YOU.
AND WE HAVE ALDERMAN PINCOTT

04:35:58.199,04:36:07.635
SECONDING.
AND I SEE ALDERMAN STEVENSON.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

04:36:07.637,04:36:12.139
NO THOUGHT BUBBLES FROM THIS
SIDE HERE.
I JUST HAVE A QUESTION AS FAR

04:36:12.141,04:36:19.007
AS WHAT THE WAY THIS IS WORDED
IS ONLY FOR LANDSCAPING.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE OWNER

04:36:19.009,04:36:24.780
OF THIS PROPERTY THEN WOULD
NOT BE ABLE TO PUT ON A GAZEBO
OR A GARDEN SHED OR ANYTHING

04:36:24.782,04:36:33.675
LIKE THAT ON HIS LAND?
BECAUSE I THINK THE
NON-INHABITABLE DWELLING WOULD

04:36:33.677,04:36:37.710
BE BETTER THAN THE
LANDSCAPING.
COULD YOU TELL ME THAT

04:36:37.712,04:36:43.621
Mr. WATSON?
>> WELL, THAT’S A GOOD
QUESTION.

04:36:43.623,04:36:51.819
I WOULD THINK, YOU KNOW, NOT
PUT A BUILDING ON IT, NOT PUT
A HOUSE ON IT, WOULD GET INTO

04:36:51.821,04:36:56.653
A REALLY INTERESTING
DISCUSSION AT THE FRONT
COUNTER WHETHER A GAZEBO IS

04:36:56.655,04:37:00.985
LANDSCAPING OR NOT
LANDSCAPING.
GAZEBOS AND THINGS LIKE THAT

04:37:00.987,04:37:05.814
LOOKING AT Mr. ORR AND
Mr. MCKENZIE, NOT THINGS THAT
WE REQUIRE DEVELOPMENT PERMITS

04:37:05.816,04:37:10.729
FOR.
YOU CAN GO TO HOME DEPOT AND
BUY YOUR GAZEBO AND GO HOME

04:37:10.731,04:37:15.936
AND PLUNK IT DOWN.
>> I’M JUST SAYING IF WE WENT
WITH THE WORDING NO HOUSE OR

04:37:15.938,04:37:20.998
ANY KIND OF –
WOULDN’T THAT BE BETTER THAN
JUST SAYING LANDSCAPING AND

04:37:21.000,04:37:27.816
RESTRICTING THE PERSON FROM
PUTTING ON –
MAYBE Ms. SLOAN CAN HELP US

04:37:27.818,04:37:31.585
WITH THAT.
CAN SHE?
>> Ms. SLOAN ROTE THE –

04:37:31.587,04:37:37.088
WROTE THE MOTION SO PERHAPS
SHE MIGHT AN IDEA.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, JUST BY

04:37:37.090,04:37:41.860
INDICATING NO HABITABLE
BUILDINGS WOULD MAKE IT A MUCH
GREATER OPPORTUNITY THAT OTHER

04:37:41.862,04:37:48.470
THINGS COULD BE BUILT OR
CONSTRUCTED IN THAT AREA THAT
WOULD NOT BE GREEN SPACE.

04:37:48.472,04:37:54.440
OR LANDSCAPING OR VEGETATION
IF THAT WAS THE EXPECTATION.
IF IT’S COUNCIL’S INTENT TO

04:37:54.442,04:37:58.205
CLARIFY LANDSCAPING BY ALL
MEANS WE CAN CERTAINLY DO
THAT.

04:37:58.207,04:38:03.509
WE CAN INDICATE IT WOULD
INCLUDE SHEDS AND GAZEBOS.
ONE THING TO KEEP IN MIND, DO

04:38:03.511,04:38:10.388
YOU WANT IT TO BE A PARKING
PAD FOR LARGE RVs?
I MEAN THERE IS THOSE KINDS OF

04:38:10.390,04:38:13.322
ISSUES TO CONSIDER.
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU WANT TO
HAVE IN THAT AREA?

04:38:13.324,04:38:17.921
I THINK LANDSCAPING IS
PROBABLY QUITE RESTRICTIVE.
YOU ARE QUITE RIGHT.

04:38:17.923,04:38:21.563
COULD GET INTO AN ISSUE
WHETHER OR NOT IT WOULD
INCLUDE GAZEBOS.

04:38:21.565,04:38:27.605
IF YOU ARE HAPPY WITH GAZEBOS
AND GARDEN SHEDS, ALTHOUGH YOU
CAN HAVE SOME FAIRLY LARGE

04:38:27.607,04:38:32.171
GARDEN SHEDS WE CAN CERTAINLY
WRITE THAT IN THERE.
>> LET ME JUST MAKE THE

04:38:32.173,04:38:39.828
AMENDMENT THEN IF I CAN THAT
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GAZEBOS.
>> ALLOW GAZEBOS.

04:38:39.830,04:38:52.337
>> ALLOW GAZEBOS, YEAH.
IF ANYBODY WANTS TO SUPPORT
THAT, SECOND IT.

04:38:52.339,04:38:58.102
>> OKAY.
I’M GOING TO ACCEPT THAT AS A
FRIENDLY AMENDMENT BECAUSE THE

04:38:58.104,04:39:10.117
MOVER AND SECONDER ARE BOTH IN
AGREEMENT.
THE MOTION WITH THE EXCEPTION

04:39:10.119,04:39:19.859
OF LANDSCAPING, LANDSCAPING
SEEMS TO INCLUDE DECKS AND
GAZEBOS AND THAT SORT OF

04:39:19.861,04:39:30.156
THING.
I DON’T SEE THAT AS BEING
CONTRARY.

04:39:30.158,04:39:43.265
AND MADAM CLERK, IF YOU CAN
MAKE THAT INCLUDING GAZEBOS,
LANDSCAPING INCLUDING GAZEBOS.

04:39:43.267,04:39:51.807
THANK YOU.
AND ALDERMAN HODGES?
I THINK YOU WANTED TO SPEAK TO

04:39:51.809,04:39:54.716
THIS.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THIS IS
GETTING INTO REALLY

04:39:54.718,04:39:59.582
INTERESTING AREA.
I WAS HOPING THAT ALDERMAN
STEVENSON MIGHT INCLUDE A

04:39:59.584,04:40:06.015
GARAGE, ACCESSORY BUILDING,
LIKE A GARAGE, NO, NO LET ME
FINISH.

04:40:06.017,04:40:09.981
GET ALDERMAN CARRA’S GARDEN
SUITE ABOVE THE GARAGE.
HAVE IT ALL.

04:40:09.983,04:40:12.917
WE WOULD HAVE THE WHOLE
PACKAGE.
WE WOULD BE HAPPY.

04:40:12.919,04:40:18.824
OF COURSE, NOT JUST BUILD AN
ORDINARY GARAGE.
A GARAGE FOR HIS COLLECTION OF

04:40:18.826,04:40:24.538
POTENTIAL COLLECTION OF
ANTIQUE VEHICLES.
THANK YOU.

04:40:24.540,04:40:33.755
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT DEBATE.
ALDERMAN CARRA?
>> A GAZEBO IS TECHNICALLY A

04:40:33.757,04:40:38.329
PARTICULAR KIND OF
ARCHITECTURE.
CAN WE JUST USE A TERM OTHER

04:40:38.331,04:40:44.535
THAN GAZEBOS.
GAZEBO REFERS TO A PARTICULAR
KIND OF ARCHITECTURAL FOLLY.

04:40:44.537,04:40:51.731
>> YOU HAVE SOME OTHER TERM
THAT YOU ARE RECOMMENDING?
>> I WOULD SAY –

04:40:51.733,04:40:58.646
I WOULD SAY THE MAYOR IS
SUGGESTING GARDEN
ARCHITECTURE.

04:40:58.648,04:41:09.079
>> ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> GAZEBO IS –
>> ARE YOU FINE WITH GARDEN

04:41:09.081,04:41:12.583
ARCHITECTURE?
>> I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD BE
DECIDING FOR A PRIVATE

04:41:12.585,04:41:23.264
LANDOWNER EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF
OUTDOOR STRUCTURE THEY WANT TO
INCLUDE IN THEIR LANDSCAPING.

04:41:23.266,04:41:26.362
>> OKAY.
THAT WILL BE CONSIDERED A
FRIENDLY AMENDMENT.

04:41:26.364,04:41:33.647
IT NOW INCLUDES GARDEN
ARCHITECTURE.
WHICH PRESUMABLY DOES NOT

04:41:33.649,04:41:43.858
INCLUDE A GARAGE WITH AN
ANCILLARY SUITE.
ALDERMAN CHABOT?

04:41:43.860,04:41:49.129
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
THIS IS THE PROBLEM THAT I
HAVE WITH DOING POLICY ON THE

04:41:49.131,04:41:54.263
FLY.
AND NOT HAVING AN OPPORTUNITY
TO CONSULT WITH THE LANDOWNER

04:41:54.265,04:42:02.869
AS TO WHAT WORDING HE WOULD
DEEM TO BE APPROPRIATE OR
SUPPORTIVE OF, AND I THINK

04:42:02.871,04:42:07.139
THERE IS CERTAINLY AN
OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO MAKE
THESE KIND OF AMENDMENTS AT

04:42:07.141,04:42:12.281
LAND.
I DON’T SEE WHY THERE IS A
NEED TO DO A MOTION ON COUNCIL

04:42:12.283,04:42:14.790
FLOOR.
I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO HAVE
AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS THIS

04:42:14.792,04:42:19.724
WITH THE ADJACENT LANDOWNER
AND COME FORWARD WITH SOME
SORT OF RECOMMENDATION AT LAND

04:42:19.726,04:42:27.468
SPECIFICALLY IN RELATION TO
CAVEAT ON TITLE, IF THAT’S
WHAT IS DEEMED TO BE NECESSARY.

04:42:27.470,04:42:33.606
I’M NOT SURE I’M OVERLY
SUPPORTIVE OF THE IDEA OF
SEPARATING LAND USES WITHIN

04:42:33.608,04:42:39.702
ONE PAR SELL –
PARCEL EITHER GENERALLY.
IT’S PROBLEMATIC.

04:42:39.704,04:42:46.269
NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.
I’M NOT GOING TO BE SUPPORTING
THIS.

04:42:46.271,04:42:52.710
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ALDERMAN MAR?
>> THANK YOU.

04:42:52.712,04:42:57.981
WELL, ONCE AGAIN, COUNCIL IS
STARTING TO REALLY GET INTO
THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF

04:42:57.983,04:43:01.646
SOMETHING THAT COULD BE DONE
AT COMMITTEE.
IF WE WANT TO HAVE THIS

04:43:01.648,04:43:05.614
DISCUSSION AT COMMITTEE, THEN
BY ALL MEANS, THAT’S THE
APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR THIS TO

04:43:05.616,04:43:09.190
HAPPEN.
BEEN ON THIS ABOUT 90 MINUTES,
I’M GUESSING.

04:43:09.192,04:43:14.289
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST WELL
KNOWN PHILANTHROPISTS IN THE
CITY OF CALGARY BUYING FROM US

04:43:14.291,04:43:20.495
A REALLY SCRUBBY BIT OF DIRT
THAT HAS –
THAT WE’LL NOT BE MISSING,

04:43:20.497,04:43:23.227
COUNCIL, QUITE FRANKLY.
I DON’T THINK THAT THIS IS THE
TIME OR PLACE TO BE HAVING

04:43:23.229,04:43:28.673
THIS AND I’M HAPPY TO VOTE TO
SUPPORT THE ORIGINAL MOTION
BUT NOT THIS.

04:43:28.675,04:43:38.390
THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN MAR.
I BELIEVE THAT IS ALL THE

04:43:38.392,04:43:40.454
LIGHTS.
WE ARE GOING TO VOTE ON THE
QUESTION.

04:43:40.456,04:43:49.261
ALL THOSE –
THE MOTION.
THERE ARE NO AMENDMENTS.

04:43:49.263,04:43:52.998
THE AMENDMENTS WERE CONSIDERED
FRIENDLY AMENDMENTS.
IT IS THE MOTION ARISING.

04:43:53.000,04:44:03.617
ARE WE AGREED?
OPPOSED?
ROLL CALL, PLEASE.

04:44:03.619,04:44:07.579
>> ON THE MOTION ARISING
ALDERMAN PINCOTT?
>> YES.

04:44:07.581,04:44:15.859
>> ALDERMAN POOTMANS?
>> NO.
>> ALDERMAN STEVENSON?

04:44:15.861,04:44:20.361
>> NO.
>> ALDERMAN CARRA?
>> YES.

04:44:20.363,04:44:24.667
>> ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> NO.
>> ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART?

04:44:24.669,04:44:27.678
>> NO.
>> ALDERMAN DEMONG?
>> NO.

04:44:27.680,04:44:33.450
>> ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> (Inaudible).
>> ALDERMAN HODGES?

04:44:33.452,04:44:36.615
>> NO.
>> ALDERMAN JONES?
>> YES.

04:44:36.617,04:44:40.855
>> ALDERMAN KEATING?
>> NO.
>> ALDERMAN LOWE?

04:44:40.857,04:44:48.230
>> YES.
>>> ALDERMAN MAR?
>> NO.

04:44:48.232,04:44:52.865
>> MAYOR NENSHI?
>> YES.
>> DEPUTY MAYOR MacLEOD?

04:44:52.867,04:45:15.344
>> YES.
>> FOR THE RECORD IT IS WAY
MORE FUN OVER THERE THAN IT IS

04:45:15.346,04:45:20.218
OVER HERE.
I MIGHT ALSO ADD I’M NOT
CONVINCED ON WHETHER OR NOT

04:45:20.220,04:45:24.441
WE’LL STILL ALLOW GARDEN
GNOMES ON THAT PIECE OF
PROPERTY AND I THINK THAT IS A

04:45:24.443,04:45:35.252
VITAL ISSUE THAT COUNCIL NEEDS
TO DISCUSS.
NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA, WELL,

04:45:35.254,04:45:40.215
FINISHED THE TABLED PORTIONS.
OKAY.
LAND USE REDESIGNATION DOUGLAS

04:45:40.217,04:45:54.722
DALE, CPC 2011, 8.1 IN YOUR
AGENDA, Mr. ORR.
>> THANK YOU.

04:45:54.724,04:46:04.151
CONTAINING 4.2 ACRES OF LAND
AT 2275-98th AVENUE SOUTHEAST

PROFILE DISTRICT AND DC DIRECT
CONTROL DISTRICT TO DC DIRECT

04:46:10.553,04:46:16.153
ACCOMMODATE MEDIUM PROFILE
DEVELOPMENT AS SHOWN ON THE
MAP OUTLINED IN RED.

04:46:16.155,04:46:20.396
THE INTENT OF THE APPLICATION
IS TO CREATE A MINOR LAND USE
AMENDMENT TO INCREASE BUILDING

04:46:20.398,04:46:27.027
HEIGHT TO REFLECT A SPECIFIC
BUILDING DESIGN FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT STAGE.

04:46:27.029,04:46:31.027
PHOTO OF THE SITE.
A LOT OF THE SITE HAS BEEN
REDEVELOPED IN THE AREA.

04:46:31.029,04:46:39.166
RIGHT NEAR THE CORY PARK
DISTRICT.
THERE IS THIS PORTION IN THE

04:46:39.168,04:46:48.346
BACKGROUND IS THE BOW RIVER.
THE PROPOSED DC WILL
CONSOLIDATE THE EXISTING LAND

04:46:48.348,04:46:51.682
USES INTO ONE LAND USE.
CURRENT LAY PROPOSED
DEVELOPMENT ON THE SITE

04:46:51.684,04:46:56.488
STRADDLES BOTH THE DC AND M-1
DISTRICTS WHICH COMPROMISES
THE APPLICANT’S ENTERTAIN TO

04:46:56.490,04:47:00.362
HAVE A FIVE STOREY BUILDING
DEVELOPED ON THE NORTH PORTION
OF THE SITE AREA.

04:47:00.364,04:47:05.896
WHICH ALSO STILL MUST RESPECT
THE DC’S INTENT TO LIMIT
BUILDING HEIGHTS TO 15 METERS

04:47:05.898,04:47:10.902
WITHIN 30 METERS OF THE
EXISTING SSPR ABUTTING THE
PARCEL.

04:47:10.904,04:47:16.003
THE SITE IS FLAT AND WILL BE
ACCESSED FROM THE EAST BY CORY
WAY.

04:47:16.005,04:47:20.815
PROPOSAL IS COMPATIBLE WITH
THE BARLOW ASP AND HEIGHT IS
DEEMED TO BE COMPARABLE WITH

04:47:20.817,04:47:24.968
ADJACENT LAND USES.
AS SUCH CALGARY PLANNING
COMMISSION REJECTED –

04:47:24.970,04:47:30.006
RECOMMENDED ADOPTION OF THE
PROPOSED REDESIGNATION IN
ACCORDANCE WITH WITH THE C PEG

04:47:30.008,04:47:35.037
RECOMMENDATION AND GIVE THREE
READINGS TO THE BYLAW.
THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION,

04:47:35.039,04:47:39.867
YOUR WORSHIP.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
QUESTIONS AND CLARIFICATION

04:47:39.869,04:47:42.175
FOR ADMINISTRATION.
ALDERMAN KEATING?
NO.

04:47:42.177,04:47:47.044
I HAVE ONE.
ANY SHADOWING CONCERNS?
>> I DON’T BELIEVE SO IN THIS

04:47:47.046,04:47:53.478
INSTANCE, YOUR WORSHIP.
THE INTEGRITY OF THE DC IS
BEING MAINTAINED BY IF YOU

04:47:53.480,04:47:57.547
LOOK ON THE HATCHED AREA TO
THE NORTH OF IT, YOU CAN SEE
THE FDR.

04:47:57.549,04:48:05.458
THERE IS A RESTRICTION ON ANY
DEVELOPMENT ABUTTING THAT TO
HEIGHT LIMITATION OF 15

04:48:05.460,04:48:11.100
METERS.
THAT DOES HELP MITIGATE AND
ALSO REPRESENTS THE ORIGINAL

04:48:11.102,04:48:15.474
HOW THIS SITE WAS DESIGNATED
ORIGINALLY.
THERE IS SOME RESIDENTIAL IN

04:48:15.476,04:48:18.072
THE VICINITY.
HOWEVER, THE HEIGHT I DON’T
THINK IS UNREASONABLE

04:48:18.074,04:48:24.884
CONSIDERING THE STATUS OF THE
EXISTING DC AND THE HEIGHT
LIMITATIONS PLACED ON IT.

04:48:24.886,04:48:29.392
>> ALL RIGHT, THEN.
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR
OF THIS PROPOSAL?

04:48:29.394,04:48:38.790
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN
FAVOUR?
>> GOOD AFTERNOON, YOUR

04:48:38.792,04:48:45.059

WANT TO CLARIFY EXACTLY WHAT’S
GOING ON HERE.

04:49:00.142,04:49:04.213
IF WE LOOK AT THE LINE THAT
SEPARATES THE TWO PARCELS IT’S
MY UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU WILL

04:49:04.215,04:49:08.241
BE BUILDING –
THE INTENT IT TO BUILD FOUR
BUILDINGS ACROSS THAT SITE?

04:49:08.243,04:49:13.306
IS THAT CORRECT?
FIVE, OKAY.
ONE OF THE BUILDING ENDS UP TO

04:49:13.308,04:49:19.677
BE ON THE LINE.
>> THAT’S EXACTLY CORRECT.
IF I MAY, WHAT PRECIPITATED

04:49:19.679,04:49:24.911
THIS WHOLE PROCESS WE TRIED TO
LOOK AT BOTH THOSE SITES ON A
COMPREHENSIVE FASHION, AND

04:49:24.913,04:49:30.611
WHAT THAT DID WAS AT THE END
OF THE DAY IT HAD A BUILDING
STRADDLED THE LAND USE LINE.

04:49:30.613,04:49:34.510
THIS IS THE QUINTESSENTIAL
QUESTION SOMETIMES WHEN WE
HAVE A LAND USE PUT IN PLACE

04:49:34.512,04:49:39.659
WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE PRODUCT
RANGE IS AND WE HAVE A NICE
DESIGN BUT IT HAD ONE BUILDING

04:49:39.661,04:49:43.963
THAT STRADDLED THE LAND USE
LINE, DIDN’T RESPECT THE
DIFFERENTIATIONS BETWEEN THE

04:49:43.965,04:49:49.838
TWO HEIGHT LIMITATIONS.
JUST NEEDED TO ADJUST THE –
PUT A COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE

04:49:49.840,04:49:55.182
ACROSS THAT RESPECTED WHERE
THE ACTUAL LINE FOR THE HEIGHT
DIFFERENTIATION OCCURS.

04:49:55.184,04:49:58.950
REALLY IN ESSENCE WHAT WE ARE
DOING HERE.
>> THE BUILDING ON THE FAR

04:49:58.952,04:50:03.756
NORTH END IS STILL GOING TO BE
AT THE LOWER HEIGHT
RESTRICTION, JUST ALLOW THE

04:50:03.758,04:50:07.423
ONE BUILDING THAT STRADDLES
THE LINE TO BE AT THE HIGHER
DENSITY TO ALLOW FOR THE

04:50:07.425,04:50:13.235
DIFFERENCE IN USES?
>> THAT IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.
>> THANK YOU.

04:50:13.237,04:50:21.210
>> THANKS.
ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS?
ALDERMAN CHABOT?

04:50:21.212,04:50:27.247
>> Mr. LEE, RELAXATION OF ONE
METER ON THE NORTHERN PORTION
OF THE SITE RELATED TO

04:50:27.249,04:50:30.813
BUILDING DESIGN, CAN YOU
ELABORATE A LITTLE BIT ON
THAT?

04:50:30.815,04:50:34.985
>> THAT IS CORRECT.
GIVES US A LITTLE BIT OF
ADDITIONAL LEEWAY TO MATCH, IF

04:50:34.987,04:50:42.138
YOU GUYS HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO
GO TO CORY PARK WE HAVE REALLY
SOME KIND OF FRENCH

04:50:42.140,04:50:47.348
RENAISSANCE ARCHITECTURE HAS
STEEP ROOFS.
TO ACCOMMODATE THE

04:50:47.350,04:50:51.250
ARTICULATIONS AT KEY POINTS ON
THE CORNER.
>> PREDOMINANTLY BECAUSE OF A

04:50:51.252,04:50:54.351
STEEPER PITCH?
>> YES.
>> AND 16 TO 19 METERS, SAME

04:50:54.353,04:50:58.365
REASON?
>> THAT IS CORRECT.
>> NO FURTHER QUESTIONS.

04:50:58.367,04:51:02.694
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING

04:51:02.696,04:51:05.534
HERE.

IN FAVOUR OF THIS PROPOSAL.
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN
FAVOUR?

I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THIS

04:51:22.011,04:51:30.181
MOTION AND GO FORWARD AND
CERTAINLY NOT TO LOWER MYSELF
INTO THE DISCUSSION WE HAD

04:51:30.183,04:51:34.926
EARLIER, THIS IS EXTREMELY
EXPEDIENT, THANK YOU VERY
MUCH.

04:51:34.928,04:51:37.456

Mr. ORR?
>> ON POINT OF ORDER.

04:52:15.452,04:52:23.024
I HAVE FAMILY THAT LIVES IN
CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THIS
PARTICULAR SITE AND WOULD ASK

04:52:23.026,04:52:28.361
COUNCIL’S INDULGENCE TO ALLOW
ME TO EXCUSE MYSELF AS I WILL
HAVE A INTEREST ON THIS

04:52:28.363,04:53:19.518
PARTICULAR MATTER.
(PLEASE STAND BY)
IF IT’S GOING TO CAUSE A FAMILY

04:53:19.520,04:53:28.545
PROBLEM…
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE ITEM BEFORE
WITH YOU IS LAND USE

04:53:28.547,04:53:34.928
REDESIGNATION LOCATED AT 9 ROCKY
RIDGE CLOSE NORTHWEST.
IT’S SHOWN IN RED ON THE

04:53:34.930,04:53:44.232
OVERHEAD MAP FROM SFUD SPECIAL
FUTURE URBAN DEVELOPMENT

04:53:49.070,04:53:52.237
FOR INFORMATION TO COUNCIL, ON
THE DIRECTION OF CALGARY
PLANNING ECONOMICS, THIS ITEM IS

04:53:52.239,04:53:57.603
BEING REFERRED TO COUNCIL AT
THIS PUBLIC HEARING WITHOUT A
FORMAL RECOMMENDATION.

04:53:57.605,04:54:02.075
THE SUBJECT SITE IS LOCATED WEST
OF ROCKY RIDGE PLACE NORTHWEST
AND SOUTH OF ROCKY RIDGE

04:54:02.077,04:54:08.597
CRESCENT.
THE SITE IS ROUNDED BY
PREDOMINANTLY SINGLE ATTACHED

04:54:08.599,04:54:14.631
DWELLINGS AND AN OPEN POND AREA
TO THE WEST WITH ENVIRONMENTALLY
SENSITIVE LANDS TO THE SOUTH.

04:54:14.633,04:54:29.757
THERTHERE IS A SERIES OF TREES
LOCATED ON THE PARCEL.
IT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE…

04:54:29.759,04:54:33.830
THE DEVELOPER HAS VOLUNTARILY
PROPOSED TO DEDICATE MUNICIPAL
AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESERVE ON THE

04:54:33.832,04:54:44.518
WEST SIDE OF THE DEVELOPMENT
WHICH ADMINISTRATION FEELS IS A
REASONABLE APPROACH WHICH IS

04:54:44.520,04:54:47.821
CONSISTENT OF THE INTENT OF THE
STRUCTURE PLAN.
THERE’S AN AIR PHOTO.

04:54:47.823,04:54:53.859
YOU CAN SEE THE EXISTING SITE
OUTLINED IN RED AND THERE’S AN
EXISTING DWELLING ON THE

04:54:53.861,04:54:59.692
PROPERTY.
I WOULD ADVISE COUNCIL THAT THE
SINGLE ATTACHED DWELLINGS TO THE

04:54:59.694,04:55:05.423
WEST OF THE SITE, THE PHOTO IS
SOMEWHAT UPDATED IN THAT IT IS
FULLY DEVELOPED AT THE TIME.

04:55:05.425,04:55:09.165
HERE’S A MORE I BELIEVE RECENT
AIR PHOTO TAKEN OF THE SAME
AREA.

04:55:09.167,04:55:20.314
YOU CAN SEE THE LUSHNESS OF THE
PROPERTY AND ALSO RELATIONSHIP
TO THE ABUTTING SIN SINGLE DETAD

04:55:20.316,04:55:27.552
DEVELOPMENT EXISTING.
GO AHEAD.
NOW, IN THE — THIS MAP YOU CAN

04:55:27.554,04:55:32.593
SEE THE RC 1 AREA.
YOU CAN SEE THE SSPR WHICH THE
DEVELOPER I BELIEVE IS

04:55:32.595,04:55:38.498
DEDICATING AND ALSO THE SUN
WHICH IS ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH
THE EXISTING DC PORTION WITH A

04:55:38.500,04:55:44.867
SIMILAR TYPE OF LAND USE
ASSOCIATED WITH IT.
AS NOTED, THE WETLANDS ARE ALSO

04:55:44.869,04:55:49.572
BEING PRESERVED WITHIN A
DEVELOPMENT AREA AND A
SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE SITE

04:55:49.574,04:55:54.968
REMAINS IN A NATURAL STATE.
CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION
DIRECTED TO TABLE THE PLAN

04:55:54.970,04:56:08.023
ASSOCIATED WITH THIS APPLICATION
UNTIL COUNCIL HAS MADE A
DECISION ON THE LAND USE.

04:56:08.025,04:56:14.732
THIS ILLUSTRATION YOU CAN SEE
THERE IS A WETLAND AREA RIGHT TO
THE LOWER PORTION OF THE PARCEL

04:56:14.734,04:56:21.334
AND ALSO THERE’S ANOTHER WETLAND
AREA NORTH LOCATED CENTRALLY ON
THE SITE RIGHT THERE WHICH IS

04:56:21.336,04:56:37.525
BEING PRESERVED IN THIS
INSTANCE.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO REFER TO

04:56:37.527,04:56:43.352
COUNCIL THERE’S A SPECIFIC
SECTION IN THE ASP WHICH STATES
REGARDING SITES SUCH AS THIS

04:56:43.354,04:56:50.091
THAT EVERY EFFORT SHALL BE MADE
TO PROTECT THE KNOB AND KETTLE
TERRAIN, VALUED ASPEN TREE

04:56:50.093,04:56:54.632
STANDS AND OTHER NATURAL
FEATURES THAT CONTRIBUTE TO THE
UNIQUE QUARTER OF THE QUARTER

04:56:54.634,04:57:00.270
SECTION, DENSITY BONUS STRUCTURE
OR OTHER METHODS AS DESIRED
PRACTICAL AND APPROPRIATE.

04:57:00.272,04:57:09.820
IN THIS INSTANCE, YOUR WORSHIP,
THE ADMINISTRATION FELT THAT THE
DEVELOPERS’ VOLUNTARY PROPOSAL

04:57:09.822,04:57:15.663
TO DEDICATE MR WAS A REASONABLE
APPROACH IN THIS INSTANCE AND IT
DID MEET THE INTEND OF THE AREA

04:57:15.665,04:57:22.429
STRUCTURE PLAN.
THIS PHOTOGRAPH IS TAKEN FROM
THE EAST OF THE SITE AT ONE OF

04:57:22.431,04:57:26.664
THE BAYS.
YOU CAN JUST SEE A LITTLE BIT OF
THE WORDED AREA HERE WHERE THE

04:57:26.666,04:57:32.046
RED DOT IS, AND THAT IS THE
EXISTING SINGLE DETACHED
DWELLING THAT IS ON THE

04:57:32.048,04:57:36.382
PROPERTY.
YOU’LL NOTE THE KIND OF ROLLING
TOPOGRAPHY OF THE SNOW AND

04:57:36.384,04:57:40.220
THAT’S ALSO ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPH
TAKEN ON THE SITE JUST TO THE
SOUTH PORTION OF THE HOUSE.

04:57:40.222,04:57:46.318
YOU CAN SEE THE ROLLING NATURE
OF THE LANDSCAPING HERE.
AND ALSO THAT IS JUST ALONG THE

04:57:46.320,04:57:50.953
PRIVATE ROAD THAT ACCESSES THE
SITE.
YOU CAN SEE THE SLOPE AWAY FROM

04:57:50.955,04:57:57.927
THE ROAD AND ALSO UP TO THE
SINGLE DETACHED DWELLING, THAT’S
A PATHWAY TO THE EXISTING

04:57:57.929,04:58:02.462
STRUCTURE.
YOU CAN SEE THE HOUSE WITH THE
RED DOT THERE, YOU CAN GET AN

04:58:02.464,04:58:06.635
IDEA OF THE WOODLANDS THAT ARE
ASSOCIATED WITH THAT SPECIFIC
PARCEL.

04:58:06.637,04:58:12.232
THE CORPORATE PLANNING
APPLICATIONS GROUP
RECOMMENDATION TO CPC WAS THAT

04:58:12.234,04:58:27.501
COUNCIL ADOPT BY BYLAW THE
REDESIGNATION OF 3.4 ACRES TO C
1 S, SPR AND SUN DISTRICTS.

04:58:27.503,04:58:47.801
THAT COMPLETES MY PRESENTATION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I HAVE
A LOT OF LIGHTS.

04:58:47.803,04:58:51.002
ARE THESE QUESTION OF
CLARIFICATION FOR
ADMINISTRATION, ALDERMAN CHABOT?

04:58:51.004,04:58:55.940
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
YES.
THE FIRST QUESTION I HAVE IS IN

04:58:55.942,04:59:05.708
REGARDS TO LOC 2010-34.
PAGE 3.
AT THE VERY TOP OF THE PAGE

04:59:05.710,04:59:13.442
THERE, 2010 JULY 26 COUNCIL
REDESIGNATED 10.46 HECTARES TO
THE SOUTH AND NORTH OF THE

04:59:13.444,04:59:20.520
SUBJECT SITE.
I’M NOT SURE I QUITE UNDERSTAND
THAT.

04:59:20.522,04:59:25.862
>> I’M SORRY, THIS IS FROM PAGE
3 ON THE RELEVANT PLANNING
HISTORY?

04:59:25.864,04:59:29.170
>> YES.
>> UNDER?
>> AT THE VERY FIRST SENTENCE.

04:59:29.172,04:59:35.047
VERY FIRST LINE.
SOUTH AND NORTH IS TWO OPPOSITE
DIRECTIONS.

04:59:35.049,04:59:42.578
SO I’M JUST TRYING TO POSITION
MYSELF.
WHERE IS THIS?

04:59:42.580,04:59:50.914
THAT WE’RE REFERRING TO?
>> I BELIEVE THEY MEANT TO SAY
SOUTH AND — I WOULD SAY EAS EAF

04:59:50.916,04:59:56.568
THE SUBJECT SITE BECAUSE IF YOU
LOOK ON THE MAP HERE THAT’S 94 D
2010 THERE’S THE DC ASSOCIATED

04:59:56.570,05:00:02.770
TO THE SOUTH PORTION AND ALSO TO
THE EAST PORTIONS OF THE SITE.
I DON’T HONESTLY SEE ANYTHING TO

05:00:02.772,05:00:07.178
THE NORTH.
I BELIEVE THAT MAY HAVE JUST
BEEN A MISPRINT WHEN IT WAS PUT

05:00:07.180,05:00:10.483
IN THE –
>> SOUTH AND EAST.
THANK YOU FOR THAT.

05:00:10.485,05:00:21.103
IF I CAN REFER YOU TO PAGE 2 OF
3 OF THE SUBMISSIONS APPENDIX 5.
NUMBER D, IT SAYS THAT THERE

05:00:21.105,05:00:28.047
APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN SOME
DELIBERATELY — DELIBERATE
DRAINING.

05:00:28.049,05:00:33.057
DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT?
>> I’M SORRY –
>> THE WORD DRAINING OF THE

05:00:33.059,05:00:38.564
WETLANDS.
>> NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE, YOUR
WORSHIP, NO.

05:00:38.566,05:00:44.168
I THINK THE INTENT IS HERE HE’S
OBLIGATED TO MAINTAIN THE ONE AT
THE SOUTHERN PORTION WHICH IS

05:00:44.170,05:00:50.413
ASSOCIATED WITH THAT — THE DC-9
42010, THE OTHER ONE IS QUITE
SMALL BUT HE IS MAINTAINING THAT

05:00:50.415,05:00:57.916
I BELIEVE VOLUNTARILY.
>> WELL, I’LL BE ASKING THE
APPLICANT THE SAME QUESTION.

05:00:59.817,05:01:03.080
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
I DID CHECK THE PROCEDURE BYLAW

05:01:03.082,05:01:09.353
AND THERE IS NO PROVISION THAT
YOU CAN VOTE BUT CAN’T TALK.
SO WE’LL BE BRINGING THAT

05:01:09.355,05:01:17.053
FORWARD SOON.
ALDERMAN HODGES.
>> YES, YOUR WORSHIP, ON A MORE

05:01:17.055,05:01:23.496
SERIOUS NOTE.
Mr. ORR, THE ONLY WAY TO
ILLUSTRATE MY QUESTION IS

05:01:23.498,05:01:27.226
APPENDIX 4, PAGE 1 OF APPENDIX
4.
PREVIOUS TO THE PAGE THAT

05:01:27.228,05:01:32.233
ALDERMAN CHABOT WAS REFERRING
TO.
APPLICANT WANTED TO INCLUDE

05:01:32.235,05:01:39.172
ROCKY RIDGE PLACE THE ROAD ON
THE EAST SIDE OF HIS PROPOSED
DEVELOPMENT.

05:01:39.174,05:01:43.536
AND THAT’S WHAT’S SHOWN IN THE
OUTLINE PLAN THEY SUBMITTED TO
THE DEPARTMENT.

05:01:43.538,05:01:49.715
HOWEVER, WHAT WAS ADVERTISED WAS
THE AREA IMMEDIATELY WEST AND
ADJACENT TO ROCKY RIDGE PLACE,

05:01:49.717,05:01:54.616
BUT ON MY MAP DOESN’T INCLUDE
ROCKY RIDGE PLACE.
SO COULD YOU CLARIFY THAT FOR

05:01:54.618,05:01:59.417
ME?
I UNDERSTAND YOU’RE NOT THE FILE
MANAGER, BUT THE FILE MANAGER IS

05:01:59.419,05:02:04.996
SITTING IN A CHAIR IN THE
AUDIENCE BEHIND YOU.
>> I CAN ADVISE COUNCIL THAT

05:02:04.998,05:02:10.582
WHAT’S GOING FORWARD TO COUNCIL
IS JUST THE ACTUAL LAND USE
REDESIGNATION.

05:02:10.584,05:02:14.583
I UNDERSTAND THE — THAT ROAD IS
ACTUALLY A CLOSED ROAD.
SO THAT’S ACTUALLY AN

05:02:14.585,05:02:20.290
INDEPENDENT PARCEL OF PROPERTY.
>> IT IS.
>> IT’S NOT NOTED IN THE

05:02:20.292,05:02:24.890
ADVERTISING, YOU’RE QUITE RIGHT,
BUT I DON’T THINK THAT INTENDED
TO BE REDESIGNATED WITH THIS

05:02:24.892,05:02:30.564
APPLICATION.
>> Mr. ORR, I AGREE WITH YOU.
WHAT I’M SAYING, IT’S NOT THE

05:02:30.566,05:02:38.082
APPLICANT’S APPLICATION.
HE/SHE INCLUDED ROCKY RIDGE
PLACE IN THEIR APPLICATION.

05:02:38.084,05:02:46.458
HERE.
I CAN SHOW YOU.
SO IT WAS EXCLUDED…

05:02:46.460,05:02:57.941
[Inaudible]
SORRY.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, SUBDIVISION

05:02:57.943,05:03:03.001
PLANNING.
THERE WAS TWO APPLICATIONS MADE,
SO ALDERMAN HODGES IS CORRECT.

05:03:03.003,05:03:09.336
ONE APPLICATION, THE OUTLINE
PLAN APPLICATION DOES INCLUDE
THE ROCKY RIDGE PLACE AND THAT

05:03:09.338,05:03:15.473
IS OWNED BY ANOTHER LANDOWNER.
THE LAND USE APPLICATION IS FOR
THEIR PROPERTY ONLY AND

05:03:15.475,05:03:20.551
THEREFORE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE
ROCKY RIDGE PLACE.
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT

05:03:20.553,05:03:26.826
CLARIFICATION.
I’D HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH
UP TO YOU THIS MORNING, I WOULD

05:03:26.828,05:03:29.730
HAVE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION,
BUT I WANTED TO ASK IT PUBLICLY
AS WELL.

05:03:29.732,05:03:35.130
YOUR WORSHIP, THOSE ARE ALL MY
QUESTIONS AND SO WE CAN HAVE
SCHEDULE A AND SCHEDULE B BEFORE

05:03:35.132,05:03:40.310
US SO WE CAN PROCEED.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: OKAY.
WE’RE STILL ON QUESTION OF

05:03:40.312,05:03:43.846
CLARIFICATION FOR
ADMINISTRATION.
ALDERMAN FARRELL.

05:03:43.848,05:03:49.152
>> THANK YOU.
THIS FAILED AT PLANNING
COMMISSION AFTER A LENGTHY

05:03:49.154,05:03:54.651
DEBATE, AND YET THAT WAS NOT
INCLUDED IN ANY KIND OF
PRESENTATION TO COUNCIL.

05:03:54.653,05:03:59.980
SO I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO
EXPLAIN WHY.
WERE YOU PRESENT AT THAT –

05:03:59.982,05:04:05.883
>> ACTUALLY, YOUR WORSHIP, I WAS
ATTENDING SESSIONS OF THE
SUBDIVISIONS DEVELOPMENT APPEAL

05:04:05.885,05:04:15.390
BOARD SO I WAS NOT PRIVY TO THE
DEBATE AT CPC ON THIS.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, ONE OF THE MAIN

05:04:15.392,05:04:21.859
ISSUES — THERE’S A FEW.
ONE OF THE MAIN ONES AT PLANNING
COMISSION WAS THE ISSUE OF

05:04:21.861,05:04:28.629
CONSERVATION DESIGN.
IT WAS EXPLAINED THAT THE
RESIDENTIAL DENSITY IN AREA

05:04:28.631,05:04:35.668
STRUCTURE PLAN AS WELL AS THE
BILL FORM CONTRADICTED
CONSERVATION DESIGN AND

05:04:35.670,05:04:47.346
THEREFORE WE FELT THIS PROPOSAL.
CPC DISAGREED THIS PROPOSAL MET
THAT REQUIREMENT AND THAT WAS

05:04:47.348,05:04:53.345
ONE OF THE REASONS THAT IT LOST
IN A TIE VOTE.
>> DO YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT

05:04:53.347,05:06:21.678
WE SAW AT CPC OF THIS PROPERTY
IN THE SUMMERTIME?
>> REGRETTABLY, YOUR WORSHIP, WE

05:06:21.680,05:06:25.849
DON’T HAVE ANYTHING PICTURE-WISE
THAT DOESN’T HAVE SNOW ON IT.
SO WE DON’T HAVE ANYTHING FROM

05:06:25.851,05:06:29.145
THE SUMMER.
I APOLOGIZE.
>> AND YET IN PLANNING

05:06:29.147,05:06:34.818
COMMISSION WE WERE SHOWN IMAGES
THAT SHOWED THE LAND IN THE
SUMMER, EXTRAORDINARILY

05:06:34.820,05:06:42.329
BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF PROPERTY.
BUT WHAT WE’RE SEEING IS
DIFFERENT IMAGES FROM DIFFERENT

05:06:42.331,05:06:45.299
LOCATIONS, AND IN THE DEAD OF
WINTER.
WHICH I FIND DISAPPOINTING.

05:06:45.301,05:06:51.202
I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT THAT
COUNCIL SEE THE SAME
PRESENTATION WITH THE SAME

05:06:51.204,05:07:01.848
PROPERTIES THAT WE SAW AT CPC.
THAT HELPED DETERMINE THE CPC
DECISION — OR LACK OF DECISION.

05:07:03.375,05:07:16.420
I WOULD LIKE SOME ATTEMPT TO
ARRIVE AT THOSE, SOMEHOW.
>> CAN WE FIND THEM SOMEWHERE?

05:07:16.422,05:07:22.457
>> IT’S NOT REALLY WHAT I’M
TALKING ABOUT.
>> Mr. WATSON?

05:07:22.459,05:07:29.540
>> THROUGH THE CHAIR, I TOO
REMEMBER THE — I BELIEVE IT WAS
THIS APPLICATION, BUT THERE WAS

05:07:29.542,05:07:33.083
SOME PHOTOGRAPHS THAT CERTAINLY
WERE NOT WINTER PHOTOGRAPHS –
>> I KNOW.

05:07:33.085,05:07:39.082
THESE PHOTOGRAPHS WOULD LEAD YOU
TO A CERTAIN OUTCOME, VERY
DIFFERENT FROM THE OUTCOME

05:07:39.084,05:07:41.046
CPC –
>> IN THEORY IT SHOULD BE IN
THAT FILE.

05:07:41.048,05:07:45.448
IF IT’S NOT IN THAT FILE WE
COULD TABLE IT AND GO BACK AND
HAVE ANOTHER LOOK IF THERE’S

05:07:45.450,05:07:50.354
ANOTHER FILE OR SOMETHING ELSE
HANGING UPSTAIRS.
>> WE CAN DO THAT, YOUR WORSHIP.

05:07:50.356,05:07:52.656
>> PARDON?
>> WE COULD TABLE IT AND GO
UP –

05:07:52.658,05:07:55.490
>> WE’D HAVE TO TABLE IT IF
THAT’S YOUR WISH.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I CAN

05:07:55.492,05:07:58.897
CERTAINLY TAKE A MOTION TO TABLE
THIS ITEM UNTIL THE END OF THE
PUBLIC HEARING IF YOU LIKE,

ALDERMAN FARRELL.

THANKS, ALDERMAN CARRA.
TO TABLE THIS UNTIL THE END OF

05:08:08.596,05:08:14.142
THE PUBLIC HEARING ARE WE
AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

05:08:14.144,05:08:17.419
ALDERMAN HODGES IS OPPOSED.
ALL RIGHT.
CARRIED.

05:08:17.421,05:08:25.420
THAT TAKES US TO 8.3 ON OUR
AGENDA, CPC 2011-40.
CRANSTON.

05:08:25.422,05:08:49.968
Mr. ORR.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE ITEM BEFORE
YOU IS A LAND USE REDESIGNATION

05:08:49.970,05:08:55.473
LOCATED AT 21111 DEERFOOT TRAIL
SOUTHEAST IN THE COMMUNITY OF
CRANSTON.

05:08:55.475,05:09:06.448
THE PROPOSAL IS TO REDESIGNATE
0.03 HECTARES OR 0.07 ACRES FROM
URBAN NATURE DISTRICT TO SCRI

05:09:06.450,05:09:09.525
SPECIAL PURPOSE CITY AND
REGIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE
DISTRICT.

05:09:09.527,05:09:15.129
THE SUBJECT SITE IS NOTED IN RED
ON THE SITE PLAN LOCATED IN THE
SOUTHEAST AREA OF THE CITY.

05:09:15.131,05:09:22.122
NORTH OF THE BOW RIVER AND WEST
OF DEERFOOT TRAIL.
THE APPLICATION FACILITATES A

05:09:22.124,05:09:25.826
FUTURE SANITARY LIFT STATION TO
SUPPORT FUTURE PHASES OF
DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE AREA.

05:09:25.828,05:09:30.942
THE REDESIGNATION IS NECESSARY
TO ACCOMMODATE THIS
UTILITY-BUILDING USE.

05:09:30.944,05:09:36.608
THAT’S JUST A SHOT TAKEN FROM
DEERFOOT TOWARDS THE SITE AREA.
IT’S BASICALLY IN A STRIPPING

05:09:36.610,05:09:42.383
AND GRADING STATE AT THIS TIME.
AND THAT IS A PORTION OF — A
SMALL PORTION OF THE LOCATION

05:09:42.385,05:09:48.384
RELATIVE TO THE SITE FROM
DEERFOOT TO THE — JUST OFF THE
SITE OF THE PROPERTY.

05:09:48.386,05:09:54.410
CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION
RECOMMENDED THAT COUNCIL ADOPT
THE PROPOSED REDESIGNATION IN

05:09:54.412,05:09:57.894
ACCORDANCE WITH THE C PEG
RECOMMENDATION AND GIVE THREE
READINGS TO THE BYLAW.

05:09:57.896,05:10:05.437
YOUR WORSHIP, THAT COMPLETES MY
PRESENTATION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

05:10:05.439,05:10:12.344
YOU VERY MUCH.
QUESTION OF CLARIFICATION.
ALDERMAN CARRA?

05:10:12.346,05:10:18.303
>> SORRY, THIS IS FROM BEFORE.
THE TABLED ITEM.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:

05:10:18.305,05:10:22.109
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> VERY BRIEFLY HOW IS ACCESS
GOING TO BE PROVIDED TO THIS

05:10:22.111,05:10:28.443
SITE?
IS ACCESS GOING TO BE REQUIRED?
>> THE ACCESS IS — YOUR

05:10:28.445,05:10:33.719
WORSHIP, I PERSONALLY COULD NOT
GET TO THE SITE BECAUSE OF ROAD
CONSTRUCTION.

05:10:33.721,05:10:40.564
THERE WILL BE ROAD ACCESS BY WAY
OF THE SSCR SURROUNDING THE
PARCEL.

05:10:40.566,05:10:50.164
CURRENTLY THE STATION IS
ABUTTING TWO LAND USES AND THAT
IS WHY IT IS NECESSARY FOR THE

05:10:50.166,05:10:57.407
REDESIGNATION AT THIS TIME.
BUT THE ACCESS WILL BE FROM THE
COMMUNITY OF CRANSTON ITSELF.

05:10:57.409,05:11:00.536
HOWEVER, AT THIS TIME IT’S
CURRENTLY NOT ATTAINABLE BECAUSE
THE ROADS ARE UNDER

05:11:00.538,05:11:09.559
CONSTRUCTION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:

ONCE AGAIN THIS IS A SMALL

05:11:27.734,05:11:31.368

THIRD READING OF THE BYLAW ARE
WE AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

05:11:51.824,05:11:55.620
CARRIED.
ALL RIGHT.
THAT TAKES US TO 8.4 IN YOUR

05:11:55.622,05:12:08.539
AGENDA.
WHICH IS LAND USE REDESIGNATION
IN ERLTON, Mr. ORR.

05:12:08.541,05:12:15.356
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
THIS ITEM BEFORE YOU IS AN
APPLICATION TO REDESIGNATE

05:12:15.358,05:12:24.400
0.009 HECTARES OR 0.02 ACRES
LOCATED AT 2329 AND 2329 R
ERLTON PLACE SOUTHWEST AS NOTED

05:12:24.402,05:12:30.338
ON THE SITE MAP SURROUNDED IN
RED FROM AN RC 2 RESIDENTIAL
CONTEXTUAL ONE DWELLING DISTRICT

05:12:30.340,05:12:36.083
AND SSPR SPECIAL PURPOSE SCHOOL
PARK AND COMMUNITY RESERVE
DISTRICT TO SUN SPECIAL PURPOSE

05:12:36.085,05:12:40.852
URBAN NATURE AND RC 2
RESIDENTIAL CONTEXTUAL 1/2
DISTRICT.

05:12:40.854,05:12:47.534
THE SITE IS LOCATED IN THE
COMMUNITY OF ERLTON IMMEDIATELY
ADJACENT TO THE ELBOW RIVER.

05:12:47.536,05:12:53.680
IT’S TO SIMPLY ADJUST THE
EXISTING LAND USES AND ALIGN
THEM WITH THE NEW BOUNDARIES

05:12:53.682,05:12:58.578
PREVIOUSLY CREATED BY A
DISPOSAL.
THIS ENSURES THE PATHWAY SYSTEM

05:12:58.580,05:13:03.810
IS CONTIGUOUS TO THE OWNERSHIP
AND APPROPRIATE LAND USE TO GO
WITH THE PATHWAY.

05:13:03.812,05:13:09.114
WHAT THIS MAP SHOWS IS YOU CAN
SEE THE — THERE’S A SMALL
PORTION AT THE SOUTH PORTION OF

05:13:09.116,05:13:18.875
THE MAP WHICH IS 2329 THERE.
THAT IS SSPR LAND USE AND IN
ORDER FOR THE RC 2 TO HAVE A

05:13:18.877,05:13:24.275
CONSOLIDATED LAND USE ON THE
PROPERTY THE INTENT IS TO CHANGE
THE SSPR TO THE RC 2 DISTRICT SO

05:13:24.277,05:13:32.075
THAT WAY THE USE IS CONSISTENT
ON THE PARCEL AT 2329.
IF YOU LOOK ON THE PORTION OF

05:13:32.077,05:13:37.962
THE REDESIGNATION WHICH IS
ABUTTING THE RIVER, THAT LAND
USE THERE IS BEING REDESIGNATED

05:13:37.964,05:13:47.102
FROM THE EXISTING RC 2 TO THE
SSUP DISTRICT TO BE CONSISTENT
WITH THE USE ASSOCIATED WITH THE

05:13:47.104,05:13:51.438
PATHWAY SYSTEM.
SO THIS IS REALLY JUST A
MAINTENANCE ISSUE THAT IS

05:13:51.440,05:13:59.077
NECESSARY IN THIS INSTANCE IN
ORDER SO THAT THE PARCEL AS IT
CONSISTENT LANDS USE AND THE

05:13:59.079,05:14:04.451
PATHWAY LAND USE IS CONSISTENT
WITH THE ABUTTING PATHWAY TO THE
NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE

05:14:04.453,05:14:12.593
PROPERTIES.
THIS IS JUST A PHOTOGRAPH.
THAT’S THE ACTUAL HOUSE.

05:14:12.595,05:14:18.340
THAT’S LOOKING TOWARDS THE RIVER
FROM THAT PHOTOGRAPH THERE.
YOU CAN JUST SEE THE

05:14:18.342,05:14:21.869
NOTIFICATION SIGN FOR
REDESIGNATION ON THE PROPERTY.
AND THIS IS TAKEN — THIS IS TO

05:14:21.871,05:14:27.818
THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY SO THAT
LITTLE STRIP OF PROPERTY WHICH
IS ABUTTING THE PATHWAY SYSTEM,

05:14:27.820,05:14:35.922
THAT IS THE AREA THERE THAT IS
BEING REDESIGNATED TO BE
CONSISTENT WITH THE LAND USE

05:14:35.924,05:14:46.930
CERTAINTIED WITH THE PATHWAY.
AND THAT CONCLUDES MY
PRESENTATION, YOUR WORSHIP.

05:14:46.932,05:14:53.401
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: ANY
QUESTIONS?
ANYONE WISH TO — ALDERMAN

05:14:53.403,05:14:56.874
CARRA.
>> WHAT WERE THE COMMENTS FROM
THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION ON

05:14:56.876,05:15:00.577
THIS?
I DON’T SEE ANYTHING IN THE
PACKAGE.

05:15:00.579,05:15:06.781
>> IN SPEAKING, MY COLLEAGUE
Mr. COPE, THE PREVIOUS
SUBDIVISION DID — GARNERED

05:15:06.783,05:15:10.811
SUPPORT FROM THE COMMUNITY
ASSOCIATION AND THE INTERESTS IN
EXPEDITING THE PROCESS DID NOT

05:15:10.813,05:15:17.326
FEEL AS IF A CIRCULATION WAS
NECESSARY IN THIS INSTANCE.
SO THE APPLICATION WAS EXPEDITED

05:15:17.328,05:15:23.441
AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AND NOT
FORMALLY ASSOCIATED TO THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION.

05:15:23.443,05:15:28.802
>> SO THE REASON THERE WAS NO –
>> YES.
>> WHOSE DECISION WAS THAT?

05:15:28.804,05:15:35.572
>> THAT WAS MY COLLEAGUE DECIDED
TO EXPEDITE IT, THAT WAS THE
BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH IT.

05:15:35.574,05:15:37.777
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
BECAUSE IF I MAY PUT WORDS IN
YOUR MOUTH THIS IS HOUSE KEEPING

05:15:37.779,05:15:39.511
FOR A DECISION THAT WAS ALREADY
MADE.
IS THAT CORRECT?

05:15:39.513,05:15:42.570
>> , THAT, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU.

05:15:42.572,05:15:47.113
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR
OF THIS PROPOSAL?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR?

ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN

ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN

05:15:51.782,05:15:57.828
OPPOSITION?
ALL RIGHT THEN THE PUBLIC
HEARING IS CLOSED.

05:15:57.830,05:16:03.531
I’LL NEED SOMEONE TO MOVE THE
RECOMMENDATIONS.

05:16:03.533,05:16:05.694
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
ALDERMAN CARRA.
ALDERMAN CHABOT IS SECONDING.

05:16:05.696,05:16:10.494
ANY DISCUSSION ON THE
RECOMMENDATIONS?
ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE WE

05:17:22.649,05:17:26.722
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: IS
THAT ALL RIGHT?
DONE.

05:17:26.724,05:17:35.165
>> OUR FIRST ITEM, THE BIRD
FRIENDLY URBAN DECIDE GUIDELINE.
IT OFFERS NONSTATUTORY BUILDING

05:17:35.167,05:17:40.519
DESIGN AND URBAN DESIGN IDEAS
WHICH ADDRESS THE GLOBAL ISSUE
OF BIRD BUILDING COLLISIONS IN

THE PAGE ON THE SCREEN

05:18:08.795,05:18:12.335
SUMMARIZES THE SPECIFICALLY
RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE POLICY
DOCUMENTS MENTIONED.

05:18:12.337,05:18:22.880
IN THE INTERESTS OF TIME, I WILL
NOT READ THEM ALL INDIVIDUALLY.
BUT I NOTE THE HIGHLIGHTED URBAN

05:18:22.882,05:18:29.179
ECOLOGY SECTION IN THE CENTRE
CITY PLAN WHICH DIRECTED US TO
LOOK AT THIS ISSUE.

05:18:33.886,05:18:37.967
AS WELL THE PRODUCTION OF THE
BIRD FRIENDLY URBAN DECIDE
GUIDELINE DOCUMENT WAS

05:18:37.969,05:18:42.703
PRIORITIZED SPECIFICALLY BY
CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION IN
RESPONSE TO A GROWING GLOBAL

05:18:42.705,05:18:47.207
RECOGNITION OF THE BUILDING
RELATED AVIAN FATALITY
PHENOMENON.

05:18:47.209,05:18:52.746
BASED ON LIMITED LOCAL DATA,
COLLECTED BY THE CALGARY BIRD
BANDING SOCIETY, AND ON RESEARCH

05:18:52.748,05:18:57.151
GATHERED FROM GLOBAL SOURCES,
THE GUIDELINE PROVIDES A
COLLECTION OF DESIGN-BASED

05:18:57.153,05:19:01.514
STRATEGIES FOR THE CREATION OF
BIRD-FRIENDLY BUILDINGS AND
DEVELOPMENTS.

05:19:01.516,05:19:08.724
IT ALSO OFFERS SUGGESTIONS FOR
BIRD-FRIENDLY OPERATIONS WHICH
ALIGN WITH SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

05:19:08.726,05:19:13.564
OBJECTIVES.
IN RESPONSE TO THE
NOVEMBER 25th DIRECTION OF

05:19:13.566,05:19:19.399
CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION,
VARIOUS SECTIONS OF THE DOCUMENT
WERE REVISED TO MAKE CLEARER

05:19:19.401,05:19:23.999
REFERENCES TO OTHER GUIDELINES

05:19:24.001,05:19:31.770
TO EMPHASIZE THE NONSTATUTORY
VOLUNTARY NATURE OF THE

SOLUTIONS.
THE GUIDELINE FOCUSES ON

05:20:11.606,05:20:15.077
EXPERIENTIAL LIGHTING WHICH IS
DESIGNED PRIMARILY TO ENHANCE
THE ENVIRONMENT.

05:20:15.079,05:20:20.484
IT DOES NOT ADDRESS LIGHTING
SPECIFICALLY INTENDED FOR
SECURITY PURPOSES AND DOES NOT

05:20:20.486,05:20:29.193
ADDRESS STREETLIGHTING.
THE GUIDELINE RESPONDS TO A

05:22:09.861,05:22:15.028
ILLUMINATION GUIDELINE AS A
REFERENCE/ADVISORY DOCUMENT IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE

05:22:15.030,05:22:17.193
RECOMMENDATION AS AMENDED.
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK

05:22:17.195,05:22:21.059
YOU VERY MUCH.
QUESTION OF CLARIFICATION
ALDERMAN JONES?

05:22:21.061,05:22:24.196
NO.
ALL RIGHT THEN.
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR

05:22:24.198,05:22:29.277
OF THIS ITEM?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOUR?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN

05:22:29.279,05:22:32.514
OPPOSITION TO THIS ITEM?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION?

05:22:32.516,05:22:38.488
ALL RIGHT THEN.
QUESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION.
ALDERMAN JONES?

05:22:38.490,05:22:44.560
>> WHEN I READ THIS, I HAVE
TO — AND I DON’T WANT TO BE
FLIPPANT OR SOUND CRUEL BUT IT

05:22:44.562,05:22:54.965
SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF WORK TO GO
TO FOR 137 BIRDS A YEAR.
WHEN YOU’RE TALKING 5 TO

05:22:54.967,05:23:00.737
10 BILLION MIGRATORY BIRDS AND
WE’VE HAD ON AVERAGE 137 A YEAR,
IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF WORK.

05:23:00.739,05:23:08.312
>> THE PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE IN
RESPONSE TO THAT IS THAT WE HAVE
VERY LITTLE DATA ON THIS ISSUE.

05:23:08.314,05:23:15.789
WE HAVE LIMITED DATA THAT WAS
COMPILED BY OUR LOCAL BIRD
BANDING SOCIETY IN THE 1990s

05:23:15.791,05:23:23.906
AND GIVEN THE LACK OF LOCAL
DATA, WE MADE THE DECISION TO
PROCEED BASED ON THE PERCEIVED

05:23:23.908,05:23:30.743
GLOBAL PHENOMENON AND THE
ESTIMATES OF AVIAN FATALITY THAT
ARE OCCURRING ELSEWHERE IN NORTH

05:23:30.745,05:23:36.684
AMERICA.
THE DOCUMENT AS MENTIONED IS
VOLUNTARY AND IT SEEMED TO BE

05:23:36.686,05:23:42.391
ONE OF THE RIGHT STRATEGIES TO
TAKE IN TERMS OF VARIOUS
SUSTAINABLE AND ENVIRONMENTAL

05:23:42.393,05:23:48.166
INITIATIVES HAPPENING THROUGHOUT
THE CITY.
>> SINCE I’VE LIVED IN MY HOUSE,

05:23:48.168,05:23:55.412
I’VE HAD THREE BIRDS HIT A
WINDOW AND I ASSUME BECAUSE
THEY’RE EATING THE FERMENTED

05:23:55.414,05:24:01.251
BERRY ON THE TREE OR THE
FERMENTED APPLES ON THE TREE.
IF I HAD THREE, 137 ISN’T BAD IN

05:24:01.253,05:24:05.388
THE COURSE OF TIME.
WHAT DO OTHER CITIES DO?
>> EXCUSE ME?

05:24:05.390,05:24:08.554
WHAT DO OTHER CITIES DO?
>> OBVIOUSLY WE’VE PROBABLY
TALKED TO TORONTO OR ANYBODY

05:24:08.556,05:24:13.192
ELSE THAT’S ON A MIGRATORY BIRD
ROUTE.
>> A LARGE NUMBER OF NORTH

05:24:13.194,05:24:17.997
AMERICAN CITIES INCLUDING
TORONTO, SAN FRANCISCO AND NEW
YORK HAVE PRODUCED FAIRLY

05:24:17.999,05:24:22.334
COMPREHENSIVE STUDIES AND
DOCUMENTS.
TORONTO’S IS FAR MORE REGULATORY

05:24:22.336,05:24:27.943
THAN OURS BUT THEIR DATA SHOWS A
MUCH LARGER PROBLEM THERE.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

05:24:27.945,05:24:34.953
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU.
AGAIN, QUESTIONS FOR

05:24:34.955,05:24:39.018
ADMINISTRATION?
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

05:24:39.020,05:24:50.434
AND I HAD SOME CONCERNS ABOUT
WHAT THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS –
ADOPTING THIS DOCUMENT ARE GOING

05:24:50.436,05:24:58.272
TO BE IN THE FUTURE.
HOW DO YOU ENVISION APPLYING
THIS DOCUMENT?

05:24:58.274,05:25:03.387
>> THE DOCUMENT WILL BE USED AS
A REFERENCE DOCUMENT IN PLANNING
APPLICATIONS THAT ARE

05:25:03.389,05:25:07.885
SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFIED AS IN
THE HIGHER RISK AREAS.
PARTICULARLY BORDERING NATURAL

05:25:07.887,05:25:12.413
AREAS.
THAT’S OUTLINED IN THE DOCUMENT.
>> SO AS SOME RESOURCE

05:25:12.415,05:25:20.320
IMPLICATIONS.
>> RESOURCE IMPLICATION?
IT WILL BE USED BY STAFF.

05:25:20.322,05:25:23.017
IN CONVERSATION WITH THE
BUILDING APPLICANTS, YES.
>> THAT’S PART OF THE PROBLEM

05:25:23.019,05:25:30.595
THAT I HAD.
SECOND PROBLEM IS THAT I
CERTAINLY HAVE SEEN A FEW BIRDS

05:25:30.597,05:25:37.400
IN MY YARD AND NOT ALL OF THEM
MOVING, AND THEY WEREN’T AS A
RESULT OF RUNNING INTO GLASS BUT

05:25:37.402,05:25:43.603
RATHER AS A RESULT OF
NEIGHBOURING CATS OR THE
FREE-ROAMING CATS.

05:25:43.605,05:25:49.607
YOU’LL SEE THAT AS PROBABLY A
MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM IN REGARDS
TO THE AVIAN POPULATION THAN

05:25:49.609,05:25:52.746
THIS.
BASED ON WHAT I’VE SEEN AS THE
NUMBER.

05:25:52.748,05:25:56.779
EVEN IF THEY’RE CONSERVATIVE AND
YOU DOUBLE THEM.
THE OTHER PROBLEM I HAD WITH

05:25:56.781,05:26:04.194
THIS IS IT SEEMS VERY
TWO-DIMENSIONAL IN THINKING.
AND NOT REALLY LOOKING AT IT

05:26:04.196,05:26:11.399
FROM A BIRD’S EYE VIEW, NO PUN
INTENDED.
BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT THE

05:26:11.401,05:26:20.471
ANGLING OF THE GLASS AS AN
EXAMPLE, THAT MAY BE RELEVANT IF
YOU’RE FLYING HORIZONTAL TO THE

05:26:20.473,05:26:23.271
GLASS.
BUT IF YOU’RE FLYING UPWARDS
TOWARDS THE GLASS YOUR

05:26:23.273,05:26:27.943
PERCEPTION WOULD BE THE SAME AS
IF IT WEREN’T ANGLED WHICH IS
WHY I’M JUST WONDERING IF THIS

05:26:27.945,05:26:34.815
IS AN EXERCISE IN FUTILITY OR
WHAT WE REALLY HOPE TO ACHIEVE
FROM IT, AND WHETHER WE

05:26:34.817,05:26:44.723
SHOULDN’T ACTUALLY BE RECEIVING
IT FOR INFORMATION AND PROVIDING
IT AS A GUIDE TO DEVELOPERS THAT

05:26:44.725,05:26:50.528
ARE INTENDING ON DEVELOPING SOME
OF THESE
ENVIRONMENTALLY-SENSITIVE AREAS.

05:26:50.530,05:26:56.910
>> IF I MAY RESPOND, THAT IS THE
INTENT, THAT IT WOULD BE USED AS
A GUIDE.

05:26:56.912,05:27:03.756
>> THE CONCERN THAT I HAVE IS
HOW MUCH EMPHASIS WE AS
ADMINISTRATION ARE GOING TO BE

05:27:03.758,05:27:06.558
PLACING ON THIS DOCUMENT IN
REGARDS TO APPLICATIONS MOVING
FORWARD.

05:27:06.560,05:27:15.765
I SEE IT AS A BENEFIT MAYBE TO
SOMEBODY WHO’S DEVELOPING LANDS.
I SEE IT AS A DETRIMENT FROM THE

05:27:15.767,05:27:20.267
MUNICIPAL PERSPECTIVE IN REGARDS
TO ALLOCATING OR ADDING ANOTHER
LEVEL OF COMPLEXITY IN REGARDS

05:27:20.269,05:27:26.168
TO REVIEWING SOME OF OUR
APPLICATIONS.
>> IF I MAY RESPOND TO THAT AS

05:27:26.170,05:27:30.778
WELL, THAT WAS ALSO THE CONCERN
OF CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION
AND WAS DISCUSSED AT LENGTH, HOW

05:27:30.780,05:27:37.025
THE DOCUMENT WOULD BE USED, AND
HENCE THE AMENDMENT THAT WAS
ADDED TO THE RECOMMENDATION THAT

05:27:37.027,05:27:42.387
THE DOCUMENT BE ADOPTED AS A
REFERENCE/ADVISORY DOCUMENT
ONLY.

05:27:42.389,05:27:47.801
IT’S REALLY JUST A PART OF A
LEARNING CURVE WE HAVE ABOUT HOW
THESE ISSUES ARE IMPACTED BY

05:27:47.803,05:27:55.911
BUILDINGS AND REALLY IT’S INTENT
IS TO PROVIDE SUGGESTIONS FOR
LARGER DEVELOPMENTS PARTICULARLY

05:27:55.913,05:28:00.821
DEVELOPMENTS THAT MAY EMPLOY
LARGE AREAS OF REFLECTIVE GLASS.
THIS BUILDING BEING A GOOD

05:28:00.823,05:28:03.823
EXAMPLE.
WE GET A FAIR NUMBER OF BIRD
KILL ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THIS

05:28:03.825,05:28:08.852
BUILDING.
IT’S NOT MEANT TO IMPACT THE
SMALLER DEVELOPMENTS OR

05:28:08.854,05:28:12.252
DEVELOPMENTS THAT AREN’T
ANYWHERE NEAR ANY KIND OF
NATURAL AREAS THAT MIGHT BE

05:28:12.254,05:28:16.158
HIGHER RISK.
>> THANK YOU FOR THAT RESPONSE.
NOW, YOUR WORSHIP, BEING AS IT

05:28:16.160,05:28:22.792
WAS A JOINT PRESENTATION, I
WONDER IF I CAN THEN ASK
QUESTIONS SPECIFICALLY RELATED

05:28:22.794,05:28:33.465
TO THE ILLUMINATION DOCUMENT.
AND, AGAIN, MY CONCERN IS THE
IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS.

05:28:33.467,05:28:42.640
THE IMPLEMENTATION IS A LITTLE
MORE RIGOROUS IN THIS INSTANCE
IN REGARDS TO THE LIGHTING

05:28:42.642,05:28:47.780
RECOMMENDATIONS?
THE REASON I’M ASKING THAT
QUESTION IS BECAUSE I SAW IN

05:28:47.782,05:28:55.677
HERE SOMEWHERE IF I CAN FIND THE
STARTING POINT OF THIS DOCUMENT,
IS THIS 9.3?

05:28:55.679,05:29:02.352
[Inaudible]
IT’S ALL UNDER 9.2.
I HAD HIGHLIGHTED — MAYBE IT’S

05:29:02.354,05:29:08.624
WITHIN THE DOCUMENT ITSELF ON
IMPLEMENTATION.
AND IT TALKS ABOUT HOW IT’S

05:29:08.626,05:29:16.004
GOING TO BE CIRCULATED THROUGH
ADMINISTRATION.
IT SAYS IMPLEMENTATION.

05:29:16.006,05:29:25.354
ILLUMINATION PROJECTS ARE PURELY
VOLUNTARY.
BUILDINGS OR PROPERTIES RUN…

05:29:25.356,05:29:30.752
(.
[Indiscernible]
THEN IT SAYS IDEALLY, PROPERTY

05:29:30.754,05:29:35.522
OWNERS AND MANAGERS, LIGHTING
SPECIALISTS, THE CITY OF
CALGARY, URBAN DESIGN

05:29:35.524,05:29:41.759
REPRESENTATIVES AND CONSULTANTS
MEET BEFORE THE PERMIT’S
SUBMISSION AND AGREE ON THE BEST

05:29:41.761,05:29:48.101
ILLUMINATION STRATEGIES FOR THE
SITE BASED ON THIS GUIDELINE’S
RECOMMENDATION.

05:29:48.103,05:29:55.487
AGAIN, I’M A LITTLE WARY OF THE
RESOURCE INTENSITY ASSOCIATED
WITH REVIEWING THE LIGHTING

05:29:55.489,05:29:59.519
CONDITIONS THAT WE WILL
ATTRIBUTE TO A PARTICULAR
DEVELOPMENT.

05:29:59.521,05:30:03.789
SO IS THAT SOMETHING THAT WAS
ALSO RAISED AT CPC?
>> IT WAS.

05:30:03.791,05:30:08.894
IT WAS RAISED IN THE SAME WAY AS
FOR THE PREVIOUS DOCUMENT AND IN
FACT THE RESOLUTION IS THE SAME,

05:30:08.896,05:30:14.269
THAT IT BE TREATED AS A
REFERENCE/ADVISORY DOCUMENT.
THAT WAS ALWAYS THE INTENT WITH

05:30:14.271,05:30:18.039
THIS DOCUMENT IS THAT IT’S
ESSENTIALLY A CATALOGUE OF
IDEAS.

05:30:18.041,05:30:24.621
HOW TO LIGHT BUILDINGS MORE
EFFICIENTLY USING MORE CURRENT
TECHNOLOGY, USING LESS ENERGY

05:30:24.623,05:30:29.224
BUT DO IT IN A MUCH MORE
PLANNED, DESIGNED AND INTENDED
KIND OF WAY.

05:30:29.226,05:30:37.759
WE HAVE A LOT OF APPLICANTS THAT
ARE ASKING ABOUT THE USE OF
EXPERIENTIALAL LIGHTING ON

05:30:37.761,05:30:43.636
BUILDING APPLICATIONS.
THIS HELPS US TO HELP GIVE THEM
SOME DIRECTION.

05:30:43.638,05:30:51.677
>> AND I PLEASURE TH APPRECIATEE
WORDING IS ALL RELATIVE TO
SHOULD AS OPPOSED TO SHALL.

05:30:51.679,05:30:59.584
SUCH AS ON PAGE 9, PROJECT
EVALUATION.
NONETHELESS, AISLE I’M A LITTLE

05:30:59.586,05:31:06.798
CONCERNED ABOUT THE WORDING OF
THE RESOLUTION WHICH IS — OR
THE MOTION WHICH IS ADOPT BY

05:31:06.800,05:31:13.034
RESOLUTION.
JUST WONDERING WHY IT HAS TO BE
ADOPTED BY RESOLUTION.

05:31:13.036,05:31:18.143
[Inaudible]
>> YOUR WORSHIP, COUNCIL CAN
ONLY ACT BY BYLAW OR RESOLUTION.

05:31:18.145,05:31:23.019
AND WHEN THE MUNICIPAL
GOVERNMENT ACT DOESN’T SPECIFY
WHICH WAY COUNCIL MUST ACT,

05:31:23.021,05:31:28.269
THERE’S A CHOICE.
AND GENERALLY SPEAKING MY
EXPERIENCE IS THAT WHEN IT’S A

05:31:28.271,05:31:36.488
CHOICE, A RESOLUTION IS
SELECTED.
>> AND THANK YOU FOR THAT, MISS

05:31:36.490,05:31:40.960
SLOAN.
AND THEREIN LIES MY DILEMMA.
WE ARE IN ESSENCE APPROVING A

05:31:40.962,05:31:46.704
DOCUMENT THAT IS ONLY INTENDED
TO BE USED AS A GUIDELINE.
DO WE NEED TO ADOPT IT BY

05:31:46.706,05:31:50.313
RESOLUTION AS OPPOSED TO JUST
RECEIVE IT FOR INFORMATION THEN?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, IF COUNCIL

05:31:50.315,05:31:55.581
DOESN’T ADOPT IT, THEN IT REALLY
DOESN’T HAVE ANY ENDORSEMENT
BEHIND IT.

05:31:55.583,05:32:01.321
AND SO IT WILL HAVE MORE
CREDENCE, SO TO SPEAK, IF
COUNCIL ADOPTS IT THAN IF IT’S

05:32:01.323,05:32:07.587
JUST PRESENTED FOR INFORMATION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: WE
REALLY DO ADOPT THINGS THAT ARE

05:32:07.589,05:32:12.797
CALLED GUIDELINES, RIGHT?
AND THEY HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT
MEANING THAN ADOPTING

05:32:12.799,05:32:15.900
SOMETHING — A BYLAW, FOR
EXAMPLE.
>> BUT RESPECTFULLY, YOUR

05:32:15.902,05:32:21.802
WORSHIP, A LOT OF THE GUIDELINES
THAT WE’VE ADOPTED ARE
FREQUENTLY USED TO ARGUE FOR OR

05:32:21.804,05:32:28.915
AGAINST A PARTICULAR
DEVELOPMENT.
EVEN IF IT IS A GUIDELINE.

05:32:28.917,05:32:31.714
[Inaudible]
YES, I KNOW.
ARGUED FOR OR AGAINST A

05:32:31.716,05:32:37.381
PARTICULAR DEVELOPMENT.
AND IF THIS IS INTENDED TO BE
USED JUST AS A GUIDELINE AND NOT

05:32:37.383,05:32:43.817
A STATUTORY DOCUMENT THAT HAS
ANY FORCE AND EFFECT IN REGARDS
TO OBLIGATING A PARTICULAR

05:32:43.819,05:32:48.887
DEVELOPMENT FROM OCCURRING IN A
PARTICULAR FASHION, THAT’S THE
CHALLENGE THAT I HAVE WITH

05:32:48.889,05:32:54.028
ADOPTING IT BY RESOLUTION.
BECAUSE IT IN ESSENCE WHAT I’VE
HEARD HERE TODAY IS THAT IT WILL

05:32:54.030,05:33:01.737
HAVE NO FORCE AND EFFECT IN
REGARDS TO REQUIRING A
DEVELOPMENT TO OCCUR IN A

05:33:01.739,05:33:06.473
PARTICULAR FASHION.
AM I INCORRECT IN THAT
ASSUMPTION?

05:33:06.475,05:33:09.648
>> IT CERTAINLY IS UP TO COUNCIL
IF THEY WISH TO ADOPT THIS BY
BYLAW.

05:33:09.650,05:33:14.892
THEY CAN ADOPT IT BY EITHER IF A
METHOD ISN’T SPECIFIED.
BUT DOING SO WON’T REALLY GIVE

05:33:14.894,05:33:23.840
IT ANY MORE AUTHORITY.
THE PLANNING DOCUMENTS THAT YOU
NORMALLY ADOPT BY BYLAW INCLUDE

05:33:23.842,05:33:29.713
STATUTORY PLANS AND LAND USE
REDESIGNATION.
AND THAT’S PAUS BECAUSE THE MUNL

05:33:29.715,05:33:33.210
GOVERNMENT RECOGNIZES THOSE
DOCUMENTS AS HAVING AN OFFICIAL
STATUS AND THERE’S ACTUALLY

05:33:33.212,05:33:37.542
PROVISIONS IN THE ACT THAT
REQUIRES COMPLIANCE WITH THOSE
DOCUMENTS.

05:33:37.544,05:33:41.214
THERE’S NOTHING IN THE ACT THAT
SPEAKS TO DOCUMENTS SUCH AS
THIS.

05:33:41.216,05:33:50.901
SO WHAT THIS DOCUMENT DOES IS
PROVIDES DIRECTION AND
ASSISSTANCE TO TH THE APPROVING

05:33:50.903,05:33:53.930
AUTHORITY AND EXPRESSES A
GENERAL INTENT OF COUNCIL TO
THOSE WHO ARE DEVELOPING AND

05:33:53.932,05:33:57.469
OPERATING CERTAIN TYPES OF
BUILDINGS.
>> I’D BE A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE

05:33:57.471,05:34:04.909
IN ADOPTING THE CENTRE CITY
ILLUMINATION GUIDELINES AND
RECEIVING THE BIRD-FRIENDLY

05:34:04.911,05:34:10.015
URBAN DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR
INFORMATION THAN ADOPTING BOTH
BY RESOLUTION AND THAT’S I GUESS

05:34:10.017,05:34:16.390
PART OF MY CHALLENGE.
Mr. WATSON, ANY IDEA ON HOW
MUCH ADDED TIME THIS WILL

05:34:16.392,05:34:22.161
REPRESENT TO YOUR DEPARTMENT IN
REGARDS TO REVIEWING IT FROM
BOTH PERSPECTIVES?

05:34:22.163,05:34:24.955
>> EXCELLENT QUESTION.
I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO ADD
ANY MORE TIME AT ALL.

05:34:24.957,05:34:30.251
IT’S A MATTER OF THESE — AS
Mr. DOWN HAS POINTED OUT ARE
SOME OF THE THINGS WE’VE BEEN

05:34:30.253,05:34:34.226
DISCUSSING WITH APPLICANTS OVER
THE LAST NUMBER OF YEARS.
THIS SHOULD ACTUALLY SPEED THE

05:34:34.228,05:34:39.796
DISCUSSION UP BECAUSE WE’LL HAVE
GUIDELINES TO BOUND THAT
DISCUSSION.

05:34:39.798,05:34:45.035
SO I THINK THIS IS ACTUALLY
POSITIVE IN TERMS OF THE PROCESS
AS OPPOSED TO A NEGATIVE.

05:34:45.037,05:34:50.006
>> GREATER CLARITY ON BOTH
ISSUES MOVING FORWARD SO THAT
THERE’S LESS ARBITRARY KIND OF

05:34:50.008,05:34:54.715
DISCUSSIONS THAT MAY OCCUR?
IS THAT KIND OF WHAT THE INTENT
IS?

05:34:54.717,05:34:58.992
>> EXACTLY RIGHT.
>> I’LL SIT DOWN AND LISTEN.
THANK YOU FOR THAT.

05:34:58.994,05:35:04.723
>> THANK YOU.
WELL, I WAS GOING TO MOVE IT,
BUT MAYBE I SHOULD ASK A COUPLE

05:35:04.725,05:35:08.986
OF QUESTIONS BECAUSE IT
GENERATES A LOT OF INTEREST, OF
COURSE.

05:35:08.988,05:35:17.524
IT’S AN INTERESTING TOPIC.
BUT, Mr. DOWN, THE — WE’RE IN
A MIGRATORY PATH, ARE WE, THE

05:35:17.526,05:35:23.762
CITY OF CALGARY?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, WE ARE ACTUALLY
IN TWO OF THE FOUR MAIN NORTH

05:35:23.764,05:35:33.436
AMERICAN MIGRATORY PATHS HERE.
>> SO — AND WHAT HAPPENS TO
BIRDS — WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

05:35:33.438,05:35:36.943
SINGLE FAMILY HOMES AND THE
STRIKES IN PEOPLE’S FRONT ROOM
WINDOWS.

05:35:36.945,05:35:41.690
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT MORE URBAN
AREAS LIKE THE DOWNTOWN THAT ARE
REALLY WELL-LIT AND CAN YOU

05:35:41.692,05:35:46.628
PLAIN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT
HAPPENS WHEN BIRDS ARE GOING
THROUGH THEIR MIGRATION AND WHY

05:35:46.630,05:35:56.137
THEY’RE ATTRACTED TO THE CORE?
>> YES, YOUR WORSHIP.
THE — IF I MAY, THE DOCUMENT

05:35:56.139,05:36:04.043
DOES TALK IN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF
DETAIL ABOUT MIGRATORY PERIODS
AND THE CONFUSION THAT’S CREATED

05:36:04.045,05:36:11.653
BY OVERLIT URBAN AREAS, ALSO THE
CONFUSION CREATED BY THE
REFLECTIVE BUILDING SURFACES

05:36:11.655,05:36:17.862
THAT PREVENT THE BIRDS FROM
FOLLOWING IN THEIR TYPICAL
MIGRATORY PATH, SEND THEM IN

05:36:17.864,05:36:25.603
CIRCLES IN URBAN AREAS,
SOMETIMES EXHAUST THEM AND
CONFUSE THEM.

05:36:25.605,05:36:31.417
THIS IS INFORMATION THAT’S BEEN
GATHERED FROM ELSEWHERE,
PARTICULARLY TORONTO AND

05:36:31.419,05:36:35.525
SWITZERLAND.
WE HIRED THE CONSULTANT THAT
WORKED ON THE TORONTO GUIDELINE

05:36:35.527,05:36:40.888
TO ASSIST US WITH US.
UNFORTUNATELY AS I SAY WE DON’T
HAVE LOCAL MIGRATORY COUNTS AND

05:36:40.890,05:36:47.392
WE DON’T HAVE LOCAL AVIAN
FATALITY COUNTS.
WE STAND BEHIND THE SCIENCE OF

05:36:47.394,05:36:52.299
IT AS STRONGLY AS THEY CAN IN
TORONTO.
AND I THINK THAT WAS THE

05:36:52.301,05:36:57.428
PLANNING COMISSION’S CONCERN
WITH THE DOCUMENT BEING TOO
REGULATORY.

05:36:57.430,05:37:06.313
HENCE THIS UNIQUE LANGUAGE WAS
ADDED THAT IT BE TREATED AS A
REFERENCE/ADVISORY DOCUMENT DONE

05:37:06.315,05:37:12.786
AT PLANNING COMISSION’S REQUEST.
>> IF THE DOCUMENT WAS WEAKEN
ANY MORE, WE’D BE SAYING IGNORE

05:37:12.788,05:37:18.922
THIS DOCUMENT.
IT’S VERY MODERATE LANGUAGE THAT
HIGHLIGHTS IT AS AN ISSUE, HERE

05:37:18.924,05:37:25.719
ARE SOME SOLUTIONS, IF YOU
CHOOSE TO ADOPT THEM.
WE’VE DONE SOME RESEARCH FROM

05:37:25.721,05:37:30.996
OTHER CITY.
>> IT RAISES AWARENESS OF THE
ISSUE AND IF A PLANNER SEES A

05:37:30.998,05:37:34.926
PARTICULARLY GLARING EXAMPLE OF
A LARGE POTENTIALLY MIRRORED
GLASS FACADE FACING A NATURAL

05:37:34.928,05:37:40.535
AREA, THEY CAN USE THIS DOCUMENT
TO PROVIDE SOME IDEAS ON HOW
THAT — THE POTENTIAL EFFECTS

05:37:40.537,05:37:46.769
MIGHT BE MITIGATED.
CITIES LIKE TORONTO AND NEW YORK
ARE HANDLING THIS ISSUE NOW WHEN

05:37:46.771,05:37:50.974
THEY’RE MUCH LARGER AND DENSER
THAN WE ARE.
I THINK WE’RE AHEAD OF THE GAME

05:37:50.976,05:37:55.071
HERE BY RAISING AWARENESS OF THE
ISSUE WHEN WE’RE STILL
DEVELOPING TO THAT SIZE AND

05:37:55.073,05:38:04.283
DENSITY OF CITY AND WE CAN
PERHAPS HANDLE THE PROBLEM IN A
MORE AWARE FASHION THAN SOME OF

05:38:04.285,05:38:07.019
THOSE CITIES ARE DOING, HANDLING
IT AFTER THE FACT.
>> THANK YOU.

05:38:07.021,05:38:12.856
SO, Mr. MAYOR, WHEN IS IT
APPROPRIATE TO MOVE THE ITEM?
SHOULD I MOVE IT NOW?

05:38:12.858,05:38:17.519
[Inaudible]
QUESTIONS FIRST?
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I’D

05:38:17.521,05:38:21.626
LIKE TO TAKE QUESTIONS FOR
ADMINISTRATION BEFORE WE PUT THE
MOTION ON THE FLOOR, I CAN

05:38:21.628,05:38:27.803
RECOGNIZE YOU AGAIN.
ALDERMAN PINCOTT QUESTIONS FOR
ADMINISTRATION?

05:38:27.805,05:38:34.481
>> AND THANK YOU.
BOY, THIS TAGS ON TWO THINGS FOR
ME.

05:38:34.483,05:38:38.754
BEFORE I GOT HERE I WAS A
LIGHTING DESIGNER FOR 20 YEARS.
SO HOORAY.

05:38:38.756,05:38:44.615
AND ALSO CAME VERY CLOSE TO
BECOMING AN ORNITHOLOGIST.
SO HOORAY.

05:38:44.617,05:38:48.011
AND I’M GLAD THAT THEY’RE BEING
BROUGHT TOGETHER BECAUSE I THINK
THEY ARE COMPLEMENTARY.

05:38:48.013,05:38:52.944
SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR DOING
THAT.
I ALSO THINK IT’S ABOUT TIME.

05:38:52.946,05:38:58.350
AS SHAKESPEARE SAID, IF ALL THE
WORLD’S A STAGE, I WANT BETTER
LIGHTING.

05:38:58.352,05:39:10.727
THIS HOPEFULLY WILL GET US
THERE.
A QUESTION AROUND HOW…

05:39:10.729,05:39:17.876
DID YOU IN LOOKING AT THE
ILLUMINATION GUIDELINES CONSIDER
THINGS LIKE CUMULATIVE IMPACTS

05:39:17.878,05:39:22.120
OR — AS TO MIX METAPHORS THE
CACOPHONY OF LIGHTING THAT WE
HAVE.

05:39:22.122,05:39:30.091
WAS THERE ANY CONSIDERATION
GIVEN TO THAT?
>> WE DID LOOK AT THE CUMULATIVE

05:39:30.093,05:39:36.129
EFFECTS TO A CERTAIN EXTENT AND
YOU’LL NOTE IN THE DOCUMENT THAT
IT STRESSES LIGHTING USED AS

05:39:36.131,05:39:42.272
PUNCTUATION AND IT TALKS ABOUT
CONTRASTING LIT AREAS WITH AREAS
OF DARKNESS JUST IN ORDER THAT

05:39:42.274,05:39:47.307
IT DOESN’T BECOME A CACOPHONY OF
LIGHTING UNLESS THAT’S THE
INTENT FOR A PARTICULAR

05:39:47.309,05:39:55.816
DISTRICT, SAY AN ENTERTAINMENT
DISTRICT.
THERE IS A FURTHER REQUIREMENT

05:39:55.818,05:40:00.953
HERE IN ORDER TO CRYSTALLIZE THE
IDEA OF A MASTER PLAN OF
LIGHTING, SO TO SPEAK.

05:40:00.955,05:40:07.099
IF ONE WOULD REALLY HAVE TO
DETERMINE WHERE THE MOST LIT
AREAS SHOULD BE AND WHERE THE

05:40:07.101,05:40:14.370
LESSER LIT AREAS SHOULD BE.
THIS DOCUMENT JUST TALKS ABOUT
CIVIC BUILDINGS, LANDMARKS,

05:40:14.372,05:40:19.507
PUNCTUATION POINTS, AREAS OF
DISTINCTIVENESS.
IF YOU WANT TO LIGHT THOSE IN A

05:40:19.509,05:40:28.423
MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT AND MORE
DISTINCTIVE WAY IN ORDER TO
BRING MORE VITALITY OR ANIMATION

05:40:28.425,05:40:34.987
TO THE STREETSCAPE AND SKYLINE
HE’S HOW TO DO IT WITHOUT
NECESSARILY DECIDING EVERYWHERE

05:40:34.989,05:40:40.715
THAT THAT’S GOING TO BE.
>> OKAY.
SO THIS WOULD APPLY TO — FOR

05:40:40.717,05:40:46.290
CITY SITES AND, SAY, PARKS
DEPARTMENT AND WHATEVER AS WELL?
JUST FOR THEM TO USE AS A

05:40:46.292,05:40:50.462
GUIDELINE?
>> ABSOLUTELY.
IT COULD APPLY TO — AND PERHAPS

05:40:50.464,05:40:55.929
SHOULD APPLY TO ANY CITY SITES
WHERE WE WANT SOME EXPERIENTIAL
LIGHTING ADDED AND CAN BE

05:40:55.931,05:41:01.906
PRESENTED AS SUGGESTIONS FOR
PRIVATE SITES.
>> WHAT ABOUT THINGS — AND ONE

05:41:01.908,05:41:07.341
OF THE AREAS THAT I THINK THE
LIGHTING IS QUITE HORRIBLE ON IS
STEPHEN AVENUE.

05:41:07.343,05:41:14.954
AND IT’S A PRIME EXAMPLE FOR ME
OF JUST ADDING LIGHT UPON LIGHT
UPON LIGHT.

05:41:14.956,05:41:22.026
WHERE DOES THE RESPONSIBILITY
FALL ON SOMETHING LIKE STEPHEN
AVENUE AND SAY THE LIGHT

05:41:22.028,05:41:28.400
FIXTURES THAT HAVE BEEN ADDED TO
THE TOP OF THE STREETLIGHTS TO
LIGHT BUILDINGS?

05:41:28.402,05:41:30.768
WHERE DOES THAT RESPONSIBILITY
FALL?
>> THAT’S A VERY GOOD QUESTION,

05:41:30.770,05:41:34.532
AND I BELIEVE THAT
RESPONSIBILITY FALLS WITH US.
I THINK THE LIGHTS HAVE BEEN

05:41:34.534,05:41:38.536
PROVIDED AT THE REQUEST OF
BUILDING OWNERS.
BUT THE CITY OF CALGARY HAS

05:41:38.538,05:41:42.904
PROVIDED THEM AND I BELIEVE PAYS
FOR THE POWER.
AND THAT’S ONE GOOD EXAMPLE OF

05:41:42.906,05:41:47.001
LIGHTING THAT’S DONE POORLY AND
INEFFICIENTLY.
ENERGY INEFFICIENTLY AND JUST AN

05:41:47.003,05:41:51.208
INEFFICIENT USE OF LIGHTING.
THOSE ARE THE KINDS OF BUILDING
FACADES IN PARTICULAR THAT COULD

05:41:51.210,05:41:59.022
BENEFIT FROM SOME OF THE
SUGGESTIONS IN THE DOCUMENT.
>> OKAY.

05:41:59.024,05:42:06.593
IS THERE ANY WAY OF, SAY, USING
THIS DOCUMENT TO GO BACK AND
SAY — AND WORK COLLABORATIVELY,

05:42:06.595,05:42:13.606
SAY, WITH THE DOWNTOWN
ASSOCIATION, THE DOWNTOWN BRZ OR
TO USE THIS DOCUMENT AS A

05:42:13.608,05:42:18.975
JUMPING OFF POINT TO ACTUALLY
START GETTING EXISTING LIGHTING
BETTER OR BETTER EXISTING

05:42:18.977,05:42:26.048
LIGHTING?
>> THE GENESIS OF THIS DOCUMENT
WAS ACTUALLY INTO THESE TWO

05:42:26.050,05:42:28.517
PROJECTS THAT WE’RE ALREADY
WORKING ON WITH THE CALGARY
DOWNTOWN ASSOCIATION.

05:42:28.519,05:42:32.762
ONE IS TO RELIGHT THE METAL TREE
SCULPTURES IN THE 300 WEST
BLOCK.

05:42:32.764,05:42:36.131
THE LIGHTING ON THOSE HAS
FAILED.
AND THEY NEED AN UPDATED

05:42:36.133,05:42:40.168
LIGHTING SYSTEM.
SO THE RESEARCH THAT WENT INTO
DETERMINING A NEW LIGHTING

05:42:40.170,05:42:43.638
SYSTEM FOR THAT AS WELL AS THE
RESEARCH THAT WENT INTO
DETERMINING A NEW LIGHTING

05:42:43.640,05:42:50.648
SYSTEM FOR THE CENTRE STREET
BRIDGE WHICH WAS OFFERED AS A
CENTENNIAL PROJECT TO CHINATOWN,

05:42:50.650,05:42:55.322
THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE
TECHNICAL WORK THAT WENT INTO
INFORMING THE DOCUMENT.

05:42:55.324,05:42:58.620
THIS ONE WAS KIND OF A QUICK
WIN.
WE HAD QUITE A BIT OF WORK DONE

05:42:58.622,05:43:02.852
AND COULD PUT TOGETHER SOME
RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON WHAT
WE’VE LEARNED THROUGH OUR WORK

05:43:02.854,05:43:09.090
WITH THAT CONSULTANT.
>> WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT — YOU
TALK ABOUT THE MX AND CONTROL IN

05:43:09.092,05:43:18.705
HERE.
WAS THERE ANY DISCUSSION AROUND
TAKING THE DMX AND LINKING IT UP

05:43:18.707,05:43:23.441
BEYOND BUILDING BY BUILDING AND
BEING ABLE TO LINK IT TOGETHER?
>> THERE CERTAINLY WAS THAT

05:43:23.443,05:43:28.516
DISCUSSION BECAUSE WE’VE SEEN
THAT HAPPEN — OR BE DONE VERY
EFFECTIVELY IN OTHER CITIES.

05:43:28.518,05:43:34.048
MONTREAL IS A SPECTACULAR
EXAMPLE OF THAT.
BUT NONE OF THAT LEVEL OF

05:43:34.050,05:43:37.482
TECHNICAL DETAIL WENT INTO THE
DOCUMENT.
>> OKAY.

05:43:37.484,05:43:44.925
THANK YOU.
BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW IF PEOPLE
ARE AWARE BUT HOW FAR BEHIND THE

05:43:44.927,05:43:49.426
TIMES WE ARE WHEN IT COMES TO
LIGHTING OUR CITY AND LIGHTING
OUR DOWNTOWN AND LIGHTING OUR

05:43:49.428,05:43:54.532
BUILDINGS.
IT’S BEEN A HARD SLOG TO TRY AND
DO ANY LIGHTING IN CALGARY FOR

05:43:54.534,05:44:04.043
YEARS.
AS YOU SAID, Mr. DOWN, THIS
RAISES ITS IMPORTANCE AND ITS

05:44:04.045,05:44:08.814
VALUE AND SORT OF PUTS A
PUNCTUATION MARK ON IT.
SO THANK YOU FOR THE WORK AND I

05:44:08.816,05:44:16.086
APPRECIATE IT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:
THANKS, ALDERMAN PINCOTT.

05:44:16.088,05:44:21.889
ALDERMAN DEMONG?
>> A LOT OF MY CONCERNS SEEM TO
MIRROR ALDERMAN CHABOT’S

05:44:21.891,05:44:27.888
CONCERNS WHICH SOMEWHAT
FRIGHTENS ME.
BUT THERE’S SEVERAL REFERENCES

05:44:27.890,05:44:34.495
IN HERE THAT MAKE ME CONCERNED.
YOU’RE COMMENTING THAT IT’S
BEING USED AS AN ADVISORY

05:44:34.497,05:44:41.306
REFERENCE SPECIFICALLY.
PAGE 5 ON THE ILLUMINATION ON
GUIDELINE 4.

05:44:41.308,05:44:46.711
IT SAYS WILL LIGHTING OF THE
ELEMENT BE RESTRICTED DUE TO
SOME OTHER CONSIDERATION, FOR

05:44:46.713,05:44:53.521
EXAMPLE BIRD MIGRATORY PATTERNS.
ARE WE ALREADY SUGGESTING WE’RE
GOING TO BE USING THIS AS A –

05:44:53.523,05:44:57.292
MORE THAN A GUIDELINE TO SAY YOU
CAN’T DO THAT BECAUSE HAD IS IN
THIS GUIDELINE, THEREFORE YOU

05:44:57.294,05:45:05.289
CAN’T BE DOING THAT.
IT’S THESE KIND OF ISSUES THAT
MAKE ME VERY CONCERNED.

05:45:05.291,05:45:13.332
>> I THINK THAT PARTICULAR
QUESTION THAT’S RAISED BY THAT
GUIDELINE, IT JUST SUGGESTS THAT

05:45:13.334,05:45:17.901
IN PROPOSING LIGHTING — IT’S
UNDER THE 2.1 CREATING CONTRAST
SECTION.

05:45:17.903,05:45:23.913
IN PROPOSING THE LIGHTING, ARE
THERE A NUMBER OF FACTORS THAT
NEED TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT TO

05:45:23.915,05:45:29.552
INFLUENCE THE DECISION TO USE
THE LIGHTING OR NOT.
THE DOCUMENT DOESN’T RESTRICT

05:45:29.554,05:45:32.393
LIGHTING, IT DOESN’T REQUIRE
LIGHT.
>> NO, BUT IT DOESN’T RESTRICT

05:45:32.395,05:45:38.365
LIGHTING BUT IT IS SUGGESTING
THAT IT MIGHT BE RESTRICTED DUE
TO A COMPANION DOCUMENT, THE

05:45:38.367,05:45:43.203
BIRD MIGRATORY PATTERN DOCUMENT
WHICH BRINGS UP SOMETHING THAT
ALDERMAN PINCOTT HAD MENTIONED,

05:45:43.205,05:45:52.575
YOUR COMMENT ON A LARGE PANE OF
GLASS AT PLANNING BEING
MITIGATED, SO TO SPEAK.

05:45:52.577,05:45:58.214
SO WOULD THIS IN MANY CASES HOLD
UP AND/OR DELAY APPROVALS
BECAUSE OF THESE SPECIFIC

05:45:58.216,05:46:03.024
SITUATIONS?
>> I THINK AS Mr. WATSON
ALREADY POINTED OUT, IT SHOULD

05:46:03.026,05:46:08.602
SPEED UP THE DISCUSSION BECAUSE
WE DO SOMETIMES GET A LITTLE
DELAYED AT PLANNING COMMISSION

05:46:08.604,05:46:13.674
WITH THE DISCUSSIONS OF BOTH OF
THESE ISSUES.
AND I THINK WITH THE INFORMATION

05:46:13.676,05:46:18.610
INFORMING THE DISCUSSION WITH
THE APPLICANT IN ADVANCE, WE
SHOULD SPEED THINGS UP.

05:46:18.612,05:46:23.417
>> SO RIGHT NOW THAT LARGE PANE
OF GLASS WOULD BE PUT BACK ONTO
THE DEVELOPER AND SAY YOU CAN’T

05:46:23.419,05:46:34.349
DO THAT BECAUSE WE’RE CONCERNED
ABOUT BIRD CONCERNS, ET CETERA?
>> COULD YOU RESTATE THE

05:46:34.351,05:46:39.792
QUESTION?
>> I’M WONDERING — I’M
CONCERNED FOR A SIMPLE SITUATION

05:46:39.794,05:46:47.045
SUCH AS YOU’VE GOT — AS WAS
SCRIESE OH DESCRIBED A LARGE PAE
OF GLASS AND IT WOULD BE

05:46:47.047,05:46:55.687
MITIGATED USING THIS BIRD REVIEW
THAT THE DEVELOPER SHOULDN’T
NECESSARY LIE USE THAT BECAUSE

05:46:55.689,05:47:02.551
IT WOULD BE DISADVANTAGEOUS FOR
MIGRATORY BIRD PATTERNS.
ARE WE SUGGESTING SOMETHING LIKE

05:47:02.553,05:47:07.027
THAT WOULD BE HELD UP WITHOUT
THIS REFERENCE GUIDE?
>> I DON’T THINK ANYTHING’S

05:47:07.029,05:47:11.092
BEING HELD UP.
WE DO ENTER INTO, SOMETIMES,
LONG DISCUSSIONS WHICH PERHAPS

05:47:11.094,05:47:18.496
ADDS TO THE LENGTH OF TIME — I
MEAN, WE HAVE A DISCRETIONARY
BYLAW AND WHEN PEOPLE COME IN

05:47:18.498,05:47:23.335
WITH DESIGN, THERE ARE TIMES
WHEN WE SAY, WELL, HAVE YOU
THOUGHT ABOUT ILLUMINATION?

05:47:23.337,05:47:26.173
HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT BIRD
GUIDELINES?
HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT SOME OF

05:47:26.175,05:47:30.178
THESE ISSUES THAT OTHER NORTH
AMERICAN CITIES ARE THINKING
ABOUT.

05:47:30.180,05:47:35.581
AND THAT GOES BACK AND FORTH.
WITH THIS, WE HAVE A STARTING
POINT FOR THOSE DISCUSSIONS AS

05:47:35.583,05:47:41.183
OPPOSED TO DEPENDING WHO THE
PLANNER IS OR WHO THE ARCHITECT
IS ON EITHER SIDE OF THE TABLE.

05:47:41.185,05:47:49.831
I CERTAINLY CAN’T POINT TO ANY
PARTICULAR APPLICATION,
Mr. DOWN MIGHT, THAT WE ARE

05:47:49.833,05:47:53.667
HOLDING UP WHICH I DON’T BELIEVE
WE ARE ON THIS SPECIFIC ISSUE.
BUT THIS I THINK WILL SPEED UP

05:47:53.669,05:48:00.810
THE CONVERSATIONS, NOT SLOW THEM
DOWN.
>> ON PAGE 4 IT STATES THAT ALL

05:48:00.812,05:48:03.645
STAKEHOLDERS WERE INVOLVED IN
THE ENGAGEMENT PROCESS
INCLUDING…

05:48:03.647,05:48:08.983
[Indiscernible]
DID WE GET ANY PROJECTIONS OR
ESTIMATES OF WHAT THIS MIGHT

05:48:08.985,05:48:13.314
COST ON NEW BUILDINGS OR
POSSIBLY RETROFITTING?
[Inaudible]

05:48:13.316,05:48:23.531
>> YES.
IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, WE
DID NOT ESTIMATE WHAT THE COST

05:48:23.533,05:48:28.346
WOULD BE OF CHANGING YOUR
BUILDING IN RESPONSE TO THE
GUIDELINES BECAUSE WE DON’T

05:48:28.348,05:48:32.884
IMAGINE THAT THERE WOULD BE ANY
COST IMPLICATION AT ALL.
IT COULD MAKE THE BUILDING COST

05:48:32.886,05:48:36.754
LESS.
IT’S A CHANGE IN PERHAPS THE
REFLECTIVE QUALITY OF THE GLASS

05:48:36.756,05:48:42.686
IN SOME INSTANCES OR IT’S A
CHANGE IN THE LOCATION OF THE
TREES IN OTHER INSTANCES.

05:48:42.688,05:48:47.028
IT SHOULDN’T REALLY HAVE ANY
EFFECT ON THE CONSTRUCTION
COST –

05:48:47.030,05:48:53.202
>> BUT DID WE ACTUALLY DISCUSS
THIS WITH A AS YOU SAY THE
STAKEHOLDERS AND THEY AGREE WITH

05:48:53.204,05:48:56.276
YOU THEY DON’T BELIEVE THERE
WOULD BE ANY COST IMPLICATIONS
TO IT?

05:48:56.278,05:49:02.317
>> THERE IS A PERCEIVED COST
IMPLICATION OF THE — OF
INCREASING THE NUMBER OF

05:49:02.319,05:49:07.154
MULLIONS IN A WALL OF GLASS.
THAT’S JUST ONE OF A NUMBER OF
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO DEALING

05:49:07.156,05:49:17.535
WITH THE PROBLEM.
>> OKAY.
I DO HAVE ONE CONCERN OVER ON

05:49:17.537,05:49:21.537
GUIDELINE 10 LOCATING THE
INTERIOR LANDSCAPING AWAY FROM
WINDOWS.

05:49:21.539,05:49:25.874
I CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE THERE
MIGHT BE A CONCERN FROM A
BIRD-FRIENDLY SITUATION.

05:49:25.876,05:49:31.378
BUT I CAN TELL YOU FROM MY
PREVIOUS HISTORY THAT THE PLANTS
WILL NOT DO NEARLY AS WELL IF

05:49:31.380,05:49:35.076
YOU DON’T HAVE THEM NEAR THE
WINDOWS TO ACCEPT THE DIRECT
SUNLIGHT.

05:49:35.078,05:49:41.251
AND I’VE GOT TO ADMIT, THE
STUDIES THAT HAVE BEEN DONE
SHOWING HOW MUCH STRESS RELIEF A

05:49:41.253,05:49:47.683
HEALTHY AND VIBRANT PLANTS ON AN
INDOOR AREA IS GOOD FOR THE
HUMAN BODY, I’M NOT SURE WHERE I

05:49:47.685,05:49:53.389
CAN BALANCE THOSE TWO.
TO HAVE THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF
THE LOBBY, I CAN GUARANTEE THEY

05:49:53.391,05:49:58.585
WON’T THRIVE NEARLY AS WELL.
I DO HAVE CONCERNS WITH
GUIDELINE 10 IN THAT RESPECT.

05:49:58.587,05:50:03.025
YEAH.
ALL RIGHT.
THANK YOU.

05:50:04.964,05:50:10.672
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU, ALDERMAN DEMONG.
ALDERMAN POOTMANS?

05:50:10.674,05:50:14.540
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
WE HAVE A 6 O’CLOCK –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I AM

05:50:14.542,05:50:20.017
ABOUT TO SUGGEST THAT WE TAKE
OUR RECESS AFTER THE
CONTINUATION OF THIS –

05:50:20.019,05:50:24.858
CONCLUSION THIS ITEM SO THAT
ADMINISTRATION DOESN’T HAVE TO
STICK AROUND.

05:50:24.860,05:50:28.853
>> MAY I JUST HAVE TWO MINUTES
OFF LINE WITH Mr. DOWN AFTER
WE’VE ADJOURNED?

05:50:28.855,05:50:31.685
I JUST HAVE A COUPLE OF
QUESTIONS.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I JUST

05:50:31.687,05:50:39.122
SAID THAT I WOULD LIKE TO NOT
RECESS UNTIL AFTER WE’VE
COMPLETED THIS ITEM SO

05:50:39.124,05:50:42.461
Mr. DOWN DOESN’T HAVE TO STICK
AROUND.
>> I’M PREPARED TO SAY MY

05:50:42.463,05:50:48.564
QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN ASKED.
>> AnswerASKEDAND
ANSWERED.

05:50:48.566,05:50:51.941
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: DONE.
ALDERMAN HODGES, QUESTIONS?
>> YES, YOUR WORSHIP.

05:50:51.943,05:50:55.576
WE STILL HAVE THAT ITEM THAT WAS
TABLED.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I KNOW

05:50:55.578,05:51:02.858
THAT.
I FIGURED AT LEAST WE COULD LET
Mr. DOWN GO.

05:51:02.860,05:51:04.758
[Inaudible]
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: IF
WE’RE DONE.

05:51:04.760,05:51:09.630
Mr. DOWN, I MUST SAY THAT I’M
GENERALLY IN FAVOUR OF BETTER
LIGHTING ESPECIALLY WHEN IT

05:51:09.632,05:51:15.795
INVOLVES MORE PURPLE, SO THANK
YOU FOR THAT ON THE COVER.
BUT I WAS A LITTLE BIT

05:51:15.797,05:51:22.237
SURPRISED, AND I ALLUDED TO IT A
COUPLE OF TIMES AND I WANT TO
MAKE SURE I HEARD YOU CORRECTLY,

05:51:22.239,05:51:26.278
IN THE BIRD FRIENDLY URBAN
DESIGN PIECE WE DIDN’T SEE
BENCHMARKS OF CALGARY VERSUS

05:51:26.280,05:51:30.822
OTHER CITIES AND IT SOUNDS LIKE
YOU INCORPORATED BEST PRACTICES
OF OTHER CITIES IN THE

05:51:30.824,05:51:34.188
RECOMMENDATIONS BUT THAT WASN’T
REALLY EXPLICIT IN THE REPORT.
IS THAT ACTUALLY THE CASE?

05:51:34.190,05:51:43.162
>> YOUR WORSHIP, WE DID INDEED
LOOK QUITE CAREFULLY AT THE
TORONTO GUIDELINE AND USING THE

05:51:43.164,05:51:47.502
SAME CONSULTANT WE INCORPORATED
BEST PRACTICES FROM TORONTO SO
MANY OF THE MITIGATION

05:51:47.504,05:51:51.404
SUGGESTIONS SUCH AS THE SLOPED
GLASS CAME FROM RESEARCH THAT
HAD BEEN DONE PREVIOUSLY IN

05:51:51.406,05:51:56.336
TORONTO WHERE THERE’S A MUCH
MORE DOCUMENTEDDED INSTANCE OF
THIS ISSUE.

05:51:56.338,05:52:01.611
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: GREAT.
THANK YOU.
ALDERMAN FARRELL.

05:52:01.613,05:52:06.828
>> THANK YOU.
I WOULDN’T MIND MOVING BOTH OF
THESE, BUT ONE AT A TIME.

05:52:06.830,05:52:12.325
I’LL START WITH THE
BIRD-FRIENDLY URBAN DESIGN
GUIDELINES.

05:52:12.327,05:52:51.950
[Please Stand By]
>> — ALTHOUGH A MINOR ROUTE
COMPARED TO WHAT TORONTO HAS.

05:52:51.952,05:52:56.724
BIRDS TRAVEL AT NIGHT, THEY
TRAVEL ALONG THE BOW CORRIDOR,
AND THEY NAVIGATE BY THE

05:52:56.726,05:53:02.789
STARS.
AND SO WE THOUGHT IT WAS
IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT THE

05:53:02.791,05:53:09.333
EXAMPLE OF OTHER CITIES THAT
HAVE DISCUSSED THIS ISSUE AND
BROUGHT ABOUT GUIDELINES THAT

05:53:09.335,05:53:17.070
ARE JUST THAT.
THEY’RE TO INFORM APPLICANTS
OF THE ISSUE AND POSSIBLE

05:53:17.072,05:53:21.836
SOLUTIONS.
IT CAN BE AS SIMPLE AS TURNING
OFF DETECTIVE LIGHTING DURING

05:53:21.838,05:53:25.775
MIGRATORY PERIODS.
AND IT’S SOMETHING THAT REALLY
WE SHOULD BE DOING ANYWAY, IS

05:53:25.777,05:53:33.350
HAVING — IN SOME CITIES IT’S
LEGISLATED.
BRISBANE HAS MOTION DETECTORS

05:53:33.352,05:53:36.884
INSIDE THEIR BUILDINGS AND
THEY HAVE HAD FOR DECADES SO
THAT IF NOBODY IS IN THE

05:53:36.886,05:53:40.524
BUILDING, THE LIGHTS GO OFF.
AND THEN IF SOMEBODY IS IN THE
BUILDING AND MOVING AROUND, OF

05:53:40.526,05:53:47.229
COURSE THE LIGHTS ARE ON AND
IT HAPPENS AUTOMATICALLY.
WE HAVE A SONGBIRD POPULATION

05:53:47.231,05:53:56.143
THAT’S IN DRAMATIC DECLINE.
IN NORTH AMERICA.
A LOT OF IT’S FROM CATS,

05:53:56.145,05:54:00.087
PREDATORY ANIMALS, BUT MANY,
MANY OF THE FATALITIES ARE
COMING FROM THE URBAN

05:54:00.089,05:54:02.254
ENVIRONMENT.
SO IF THERE’S SOMETHING THAT
WE CAN DO TO HELP, I THINK WE

05:54:02.256,05:54:08.574
SHOULD MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT TO
HELP.
AND AS IT’S BEEN STATED MANY

05:54:08.576,05:54:15.040
TIMES, IT’S SIMPLY VOLUNTARY
BUT TO INFORM THE PUBLIC THAT
THERE ARE SOLUTIONS TO THESE

05:54:15.042,05:54:18.483
ISSUES WHEN THE QUESTION COMES
UP.
THANK YOU.

05:54:18.485,05:54:27.383
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,
ALDERMAN FERRELL.
ALDERMAN LOWE?

05:54:27.385,05:54:32.728
>> I’M GOING TO SUPPORT THIS,
YOUR WORSHIP.
NOW, ALDERMAN FERRELL WILL

05:54:32.730,05:54:38.369
KNOW THAT I’VE HAROLDED HER A
SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT DURING THIS
BUT I’M PREPARED TO STOPPED

05:54:38.371,05:54:43.138
HERE AND EAT A LITTLE CROW.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: JUST
BEFORE SUPPER?

05:54:43.140,05:54:48.720
>> I’D ACTUALLY CONGRATULATE
HER FOR BRINGING THIS ALONG I
THINK THE PAST SIX OR SERVE

05:54:48.722,05:54:51.715
YEARS.
AND IT IS VOLUNTARY.
IT IS A GUIDELINE.

05:54:51.717,05:54:55.723
AS Mr. DOWNS POINTED OUT, IT’S
SOMETHING THAT CAN BE
REFERENCED.

05:54:55.725,05:54:58.458
AND FOR THAT REASON I’LL
SUPPORT IT AND I’LL ASK
COUNCIL TO SUPPORT IT.

05:54:58.460,05:55:04.533
AND PLUS THAT, I — WITH THAT
I WILL SIT NOW QUIETLY.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: YOU’LL

05:55:04.535,05:55:15.922
RETURN TO YOUR NEST?
NOT UNLESS THERE’S A GREAT
FUNNEL, ALDERMAN CHABOT.

05:55:15.924,05:55:20.291
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> WELL, I WAS NOT INCLINED OR
SUPPORTING THIS, AND HAVING

05:55:20.293,05:55:24.789
HEARD FROM Mr. WATSON,
BELIEVING THAT THIS MAY
ACTUALLY HELP TO SPEED THE

05:55:24.791,05:55:30.893
PROCESS, I — I’M MORE
INCLINED, LIKE I SAID BEFORE,
TO SUPPORT THE CENTRE CITY

05:55:30.895,05:55:34.998
ILLUMINATION GUIDELINES
BECAUSE I THINK THAT WOULD
PROBABLY CONTRACT MORE

05:55:35.000,05:55:40.380
SIGNIFICANTLY TO PROTECTION OF
THE — CONTRIBUTE MORE
SIGNIFICANTLY TO PROTECTION OF

05:55:40.382,05:55:46.517
THE AVIAN POPULATION SIMPLY BY
VIRTUE OF MINIMIZING THE
POTENTIAL DRAW TO THE BIRDS

05:55:46.519,05:55:51.215
INTO THE CENTRE CITY.
DURING THE EVENING HOURS IN
PARTICULAR.

05:55:51.217,05:56:00.381
I KNOW THAT WE, AS A CITY,
HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT I GUESS
PROVIDING A BETTER CITY, AND

05:56:00.383,05:56:06.528
SO WE MAY BE A VICTIM OF OUR
OWN SUCCESS IN LOOKING AT
AESTHETICS.

05:56:06.530,05:56:09.864
AND A LOT OF THE BUILDINGS
THAT WE’VE DEVELOPED IN THE
LAST LITTLE WHILE HAVE BEEN TO

05:56:09.866,05:56:15.534
TRY AND IMPROVE OUR AESTHETICS
BY REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF
CONCRETE BECAUSE I THINK

05:56:15.536,05:56:24.706
CONCRETE WOULD BE QUITE
VISIBLY TANGIBLE TO THE BIRDS
AS BEING A SOLID AND MORE

05:56:24.708,05:56:28.841
GLASS WE HAVE OBVIOUSLY IS
CREATING SOME PROBLEMS.
SO LIKE I SAID, WE MAY BE A

05:56:28.843,05:56:35.242
VICTIM OF OUR OWN SUCCESS.
SO I GUESS MOVING FORWARD,
THERE MAY BE SOME SOLUTION

05:56:35.244,05:56:39.649
THAT IS MIGHT NOT BE ALL THAT
COSTLY THAT WE COULD IMPLEMENT
IF IT CAN HELP TO SPEED THE

05:56:39.651,05:56:45.079
PROCESS, ANSWER A BUNCH OF
QUESTIONS, ULTIMATELY MAYBE
EVEN SPEED UP THE PROCESS, I

05:56:45.081,05:56:48.088
GUESS IT’S WORTHWHILE
CONSIDERING.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,

05:56:48.090,05:56:51.724
ALDERMAN CHABOT.
WE’RE A FIN MINUTES BEYOND OUR
NORMAL TIME SO I SHOULD

05:56:51.726,05:56:56.804
PROBABLY TAKE A MOTION TO SEND
THE PROCEDURE RIGHT ALONG TO
THE RESOLUTION OF THIS ITEM,

05:56:56.806,05:57:00.408
HOWEVER BEFORE I DO THAT, I
WILL ASK COUNCIL IF YOU HAVE
ANY APPETITE, WE’VE GOT ONE

05:57:00.410,05:57:03.783
ITEM LEFT IN THE PUBLIC
HEARING.
IF YOU HAVE ANY APPETITE TO GO

05:57:03.785,05:57:07.390
THROUGH THAT ONE AS WELL
BEFORE WE TAKE A DINNER BREAK,
THEN ALL THESE FOLKS CAN GO

05:57:07.392,05:57:11.834
HOME?
OKAY, SO WHY DON’T I TAKE A
APPROPRIATION TO SAW SPEND OUR

05:57:11.836,05:57:17.327
PROCEDURE UNTIL BOTH ITEMS ARE
DONE.
SO ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART,

05:57:17.329,05:57:19.497
YOU’RE SECONDING?
ARE WE AGREED?
VERY WELL THEN.

05:57:19.499,05:57:23.626
SO WE’LL FINISH OFF — SORRY,
OPPOSED?
CHABOT AND JONES, EURO POSED.

05:57:23.628,05:57:28.097
VERY WELL THEN, WE’LL FINISH
OFF THE PUBLIC HEARING BEFORE
WE TAKE OUR BREAK.

05:57:28.099,05:57:32.971
ALDERMAN KEATING?
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
I JUST WANTED TO ADD MY

05:57:32.973,05:57:37.676
SUPPORT TO THIS AND
CONGRATULATE ALDERMAN DOUGH
FOR NOT DUCKING THE ISSUE AND

05:57:37.678,05:57:40.085
SPARROWING US MORE DEBATE.
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:

05:57:40.087,05:57:42.625
ALDERMAN KEATING, YOU ARE IN
FACT A PRINCE AMONG MEN.
THANK YOU.

05:57:42.627,05:57:47.826
SO ALDERMAN FARRELL, DID YOU
WANT TO CLOSE?
ALL RIGHT, CLOSED.

05:57:47.828,05:57:52.722
ON 9.1 THEN, ARE WE AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?
CARRIED.

05:57:52.724,05:58:01.803
9.2, ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> THIS ONE PERHAPS IS NOT –
OR DOESN’T APPEAR AS HE IS

05:58:01.805,05:58:07.467
TAKER, BUT I THINK IT’S VERY
– ESO IT.
ERIC, BUT I THINK IT’S A VERY

05:58:07.469,05:58:10.805
IMPORTANT DOCUMENT.
ILLUMINATION IS A VERY
IMPORTANT AND I THINK

05:58:10.807,05:58:14.075
NEGLECTED PART OF CALGARY’S
ARCHITECTURE, AND IF YOU LOOK
AT OTHER CITIES THAT I THINK

05:58:14.077,05:58:21.810
WE — MANY OF US WOULD AGREE
OR GREAT CITIES, ILLUMINATION
IS JUST SIMPLY PART OF HOW YOU

05:58:21.812,05:58:25.149
WOULD DESIGN A BRIDGE OR AN
UNDERPASS OR A BUILDING, FOR
THAT MATTER.

05:58:25.151,05:58:30.422
AND SO I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT
WORK.
I REALLY HAVE TO THANK THE

05:58:30.424,05:58:35.093
STAFF WHO’VE BEEN WORKING ON
THE UNDERPASS GUIDELINES, THE
ILLUMINATION GUIDELINES AND

05:58:35.095,05:58:40.894
THE BIRD FRIENDLY GUIDELINES.
I’M GETTING COMMENTS ON HOW
ATTRACTIVE OUR PUBLIC REALM IS

05:58:40.896,05:58:45.139
LOOKING AND HOW ATTRACTIVE OUR
DOWNTOWN IS LOOKING, AND IT’S
A LARGE RESULT OF THE WORK

05:58:45.141,05:58:52.112
THAT THIS TEAM IS DOING, AND
THIS IS JUST ONE NEXT STEP IN
HELPING CREATE A GREAT CITY.

05:58:52.114,05:58:57.931
SO THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU, TO I HAVE A SECONDER,

05:58:57.933,05:58:59.836
ALDERMAN PINCOTT?
THANK YOU.
ANY DISCUSSION ON THIS ONE?

05:58:59.838,05:59:04.175
ALL RIGHT THEN, ON 9.2 ARE WE
AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

05:59:04.177,05:59:06.973
CARRIED.
ALL RIGHT, THAT TAKES US BACK
TO THE ITEM THAT WE TABLED

05:59:06.975,05:59:13.273
EARLIER, 8.2 IN YOUR AGENDA.
IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, WE WERE
STILL ON QUESTIONS OF

05:59:13.275,05:59:20.197
CLARIFICATION, WE HASN’T YET
OPENED THE PUBLIC HEARING.
SO QUESTIONS OF CLARIFICATION,

05:59:20.199,05:59:25.802
ALDERMAN HODGES?
NO.
DO WE NEED ONE?

05:59:25.804,05:59:28.734
ALL RIGHT.
LET’S DO IT.
ALL RIGHT.

05:59:28.736,05:59:33.576
THANK YOU, MOTION TO LIFT THEN
FROM THE TABLE, SECONDED BY
ALDERMAN CHABOT, MOVED BY

05:59:33.578,05:59:36.046
ALDERMAN HODGES, ARE WE
AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

05:59:36.048,05:59:38.953
CARRIED.
VERY WELL THEN.
SO YOU HAD THE FLOOR I THINK,

05:59:38.955,05:59:46.387
ALDERMAN FARRELL.
>> I DID.
THANK YOU.

05:59:46.389,05:59:49.967
Mr. ORT, WERE YOU ABLE TO FIND
THE — YES, THANK YOU.
I THINK THEY’RE IMPORTANT TO

05:59:49.969,06:00:02.236
THE CONTEXT.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THE –
>> BIRD — TREES.

06:00:02.238,06:00:09.573
>> THE NATIVE GRASSLANDS ARE
VERY TYPICAL IN THE SIZE AREA.
PROBABLY BEST IF I JUST GO

06:00:09.575,06:00:15.445
THROUGH THE PHOTOGRAPHS, YEAH,
PROBABLY THE BEST.
>> GREAT.

06:00:15.447,06:00:23.758
>> THERE’S ALSO WETLANDS
THAT’S EXISTING.
AND I’LL SAY THAT YOU HAVE A

06:00:23.760,06:00:36.739
TALL DRY SHRUBS, VERY TYPICAL
IN THE ACTUAL SITE AREA.
ALSO NATIVE GRASSLANDS

06:00:36.741,06:00:39.945
ASSOCIATED WITH THE SITE.
OBVIOUSLY THESE PHOTOS
PHOTOGRAPHS ARE TAKEN IN THE

06:00:39.947,06:00:51.095
SUMMER.
ALSO, WILLOW SHRUBS, VERY
COMMON IN THE SITE AREA.

06:00:51.097,06:00:56.212
OKAY, ALSO SHOULD MENTION THE
WET MEADOW, THAT AREA IS
ACTUALLY BEING PRESERVED WITH

06:00:56.214,06:01:06.912
THE APPLICATION.
AS IS THE — ALSO THE SHALLOW
MARSH, THAT’S ALSO BEING SAVED,

06:01:06.914,06:01:16.455
ASSOCIATED WITH THIS
REDESIGNATION.
AND THAT’S JUST A TYPICAL

06:01:16.457,06:01:28.869
VEGETATION SHOT OF THE SITE.
AND ALSO A DRY SHRUB WHICH IS
VERY COMMON IN THE SITE AREA.

06:01:28.871,06:01:35.973
ALSO, THIS TYPICAL OF THE BUSH
AND THE…
AND THERE YOU CAN JUST SEE

06:01:35.975,06:01:39.806
WHERE A HOUSE IS ABUTTING IT,
YOU CAN SEE WHERE IT’S
DISTURBED WITH THE

06:01:39.808,06:01:44.046
INTRODUCTION OF GRASS SO SOME
OF THE NATIVE GRASSES HAVE TO
BE REMOVED OBVIOUSLY TO

06:01:44.048,06:01:52.879
ACCOMMODATE THE YARD.
AND THIS IS A WETLAND AT THE
NORTH PORTION OF THE — OF THE

06:01:52.881,06:01:58.114
SITE.
ACTUALLY GOING TO BE — WOULD
BE LOST WITH THE APPLICATION.

06:01:58.116,06:01:59.681
>> OKAY.
THANK YOU.
I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT

06:01:59.683,06:02:05.020
CONTEXT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,
ALDERMAN FARRELL.

06:02:05.022,06:02:08.695
ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS OF
CLARIFICATION, QUESTIONS OF
CLARIFICATION ONLY AT THIS

06:02:08.697,06:02:11.994
TIME?
ALL RIGHT THEN, SO OPEN THE
PUBLIC HEARING, ANYONE WISH TO

06:02:11.996,06:02:14.895
SPEAK IN FAVOUR OF THIS
PROPOSAL?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN

06:02:14.897,06:02:21.727
FAVOUR?
HELLO?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

06:02:21.729,06:02:27.151
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP,
COUNCIL.
MY NAME IS ROB HEYWARD AND I

06:02:27.153,06:02:30.579
REPRESENT THE OWNERSHIP OF
THIS PROPERTY AND I WOULD LIKE
TO TURN OVER THE TECHNICAL OF

06:02:30.581,06:02:36.479
THIS TO LYLE TILLY OF ECLIPSE
ENGINEERING.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: ALL

06:02:36.481,06:02:42.282
RIGHT.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP,
AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

06:02:42.284,06:02:45.754
A LITTLE BRIEF HISTORY OF THIS
SITE.
WE HAVE WORKED OR THE

06:02:45.756,06:02:50.723
DEVELOPER AND THE LAND OWNER,
THE SAME, HAS WORKED WITH THE
LOCAL ALDERMAN OF THE AREA.

06:02:50.725,06:02:56.931
WE’VE TRIED TO ADDRESS THE
CONCERNS THAT WERE WRITTEN TO
US BY THE NEIGHBOURING — THE

06:02:56.933,06:02:59.565
NEIGHBOURS IN ROCK POINT
PLACE.
TO ADDRESS SOME OF THEIR

06:02:59.567,06:03:06.936
CONCERNS OVER DIFFERENT
ISSUES.
IN DOING THIS, THE DEVELOPER

06:03:06.938,06:03:18.095
HAS — HAS GIVEN UP A
SUBSTANTIAL PORTION OF LAND
THAT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN

06:03:18.097,06:03:25.432
REQUIRED.
THIS PARCEL WAS SUBDIVIDED AND
WHEN IT WAS PART OF THE MD OF

06:03:25.434,06:03:30.098
ROCKY VIEW AND AT THAT TIME
THE MR WAS GIVEN, SO WHEN THIS
PARCEL IS REDEVELOPED, THERE

06:03:30.100,06:03:36.834
IS NO NEED FOR MR TO BE GIVEN
OVER TO THE CITY.
BUT IN RECOGNIZING THAT THERE

06:03:36.836,06:03:43.488
IS UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS,
THERE ARE LOWLANDS, THERE ARE
THE NOB AND KETTLE AND TO

06:03:43.490,06:03:50.560
ALLOW SOME DEVELOPMENT ON THIS
PARCEL BETWEEN THE ER AND THE
MR, ALMOST 30% OF THE SITE HAS

06:03:50.562,06:03:58.199
BEEN DEDICATED TO
NON-RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT,
OR UNDEVELOPMENT, SHOULD I

06:03:58.201,06:04:00.206
SAY.
IN FACT THE DEVELOPER IS
PROPOSING NOT TO TOUCH ANY OF

06:04:00.208,06:04:06.179
THE EXISTING LAND WHICH IS
MOST OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT
YOU’RE SEEING, THE NICE

06:04:06.181,06:04:16.221
COLORED WETLANDS AND THAT.
THEY’RE PROPOSING NOT TO TOUCH
ANY OF THAT LAND.

06:04:19.131,06:04:26.106
THE SITE THAT WE’RE TALKING
ABOUT HAS, ON THE SOUTHWEST
CORNER, AN EXISTING ER WITH A

06:04:26.108,06:04:31.812
WETLAND.
THE ADJACENT LANDS WOULD BE
TAKEN WITH THE SITE WAS BEING

06:04:31.814,06:04:37.157
DEVELOPED AS ER FRINGE.
THE LANDS AS YOU HEAD NORTH
THROUGH THE GREEN SPACE AND

06:04:37.159,06:04:43.549
THE TREES THAT WE’VE SHOWN
WILL BE THE FUTURE MR THAT THE
DEVELOPER IS PROPOSING TO GIVE

06:04:43.551,06:04:45.582
UP.
AND YOU’LL SEE THERE’S A
LITTLE SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF

06:04:45.584,06:04:50.287
THE TREES THERE.
THAT WAS A WET — THAT WAS A
WETLAND THAT WAS CREATED WHEN

06:04:50.289,06:04:58.103
ROCK PLACE — ROCKCLIFFE PLACE
WAS CREATED.
THEY FILLED E LAND AND

06:04:58.105,06:05:04.273
CREATED A TRAPPED LOW, AND PUT
A LARGE RETAINING WALL ALONG
IT SO NOW THERE IS A TRAPPED

06:05:04.275,06:05:11.988
LOW.
BUT WE’RE PROPOSING TO RETAIN
THAT TRAPPED LOW.

06:05:13.952,06:05:22.088
THE TOPOGRAPHY OF THE LAND IS
QUITE ROLLING, AND IT DOES
FALL OFF TO THE LOWLANDS TO

06:05:22.090,06:05:28.599
THE WEST ALONG ROCKCLIFFE
PLACE.
THE LAND — THE PROPOSED

06:05:28.601,06:05:35.660
GRADING OF THE FUTURE R 1s OR
RESIDENTIAL HOUSING WOULD
RETAIN THE EXISTING GRADE AT

06:05:35.662,06:05:39.966
THE BACK OF THEIR LOT.
SO IN THE MR, THEY’RE
PROPOSING TO NOT DO ANY

06:05:39.968,06:05:42.806
GRADING.
THEY’D LIKE TO MATCH THE BACK
OF THEIR LOTS WITH EXISTING

06:05:42.808,06:05:51.273
GRADING.
IT SEEMS THAT WE ALL VISIT THE
SITE DURING THE WINTER.

06:05:51.275,06:05:55.975
WE HAVE ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL
WINTER SHOT OF THE SITE.
THIS IS ACTUALLY LOOKING FROM

06:05:55.977,06:06:03.382
THE SOUTHWEST ACROSS THAT
STORM POND/ER.
THE HOUSES THAT ARE ON YOUR

06:06:03.384,06:06:09.525
LEFTHAND SIDE ARE ROCKCLIFFE
PLACE HOMES.
AND THE HOUSE IN THE

06:06:09.527,06:06:14.329
BACKGROUND IS THE ACTUAL
RESIDENT THAT IS NOW EXISTING
ON THE SITE.

06:06:14.331,06:06:19.902
WE’RE PROPOSING — THE DESIGN
OF THE SUBDIVISION WOULD
PROPOSE THAT THESE HOUSE –

06:06:19.904,06:06:25.874
THE NEW HOUSES WOULD BE OF NO
HIGHER IN ELEVATION THAN THE
EXISTING ROCKCLIFFE PLACE

06:06:25.876,06:06:34.294
HOMES.
THIS PICTURE SHOWS LOOKING
FROM THE BACKYARD OF THE

06:06:34.296,06:06:40.928
EXISTING DWELLING BACK TOWARDS
THE HOMES ON ROCKCLIFFE PLACE.
THAT LOW AREA BETWEEN HERE AND

06:06:40.930,06:06:51.231
THE HOUSES IN ROCKCLIFFE PLACE
WOULD BE THE FUTURE MR.
ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE SITE,

06:06:51.233,06:06:56.881
IT DOES COME UP QUITE
DRAMATICALLY HIGH.
THE EXISTING HOMES BACK ON TO

06:06:56.883,06:07:00.993
THIS HIGH WITH THE CHAIN LINK
FENCE.
WE’RE PROPOSING A SIMILAR

06:07:00.995,06:07:05.464
NATURE WITH THE HOUSING THAT
WOULD BE BACKING ON TO THIS
CHAIN LINK FENCE.

06:07:05.466,06:07:09.400
THERE ARE ONLY THREE LOTS
WHERE HOUSING WOULD ACTUALLY
INTERFACE WITH EXISTING

06:07:09.402,06:07:14.835
HOUSING.
THE RETAINING WALL THAT WE
TALKED ABOUT THAT WAS BUILT AS

06:07:14.837,06:07:19.376
PART OF ROCKCLIFFE PLACE, THIS
IS IT.
THIS IS ACTUALLY ON THEIR –

06:07:19.378,06:07:25.183
IS IN THEIR BACKYARDS, BUT THE
LOW, THE TRAPPED LOW THAT WAS
CREATED BY BUILDING THIS AND

06:07:25.185,06:07:33.656
FILLING IN ROCKCLIFFE PLACE
WOULD BE RETAINED.
THAT’S JUST A BRIEF SUMMARY.

06:07:33.658,06:07:38.190
I’D LIKE TO HAND IT OVER TO
ROB.
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.

06:07:38.192,06:07:41.725
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: YOUR
TIME IS ACTUALLY UP BUT GIVEN
THAT THERE’S TWO OF YOU I CAN

06:07:41.727,06:07:45.226
GIVE YOU ANOTHER MINUTE TO
WRAP UP IF YOU LIKE.
>> ALL RIGHT.

06:07:45.228,06:07:48.930
WELL, YEAH, AND I’LL ADDRESS
SOME OF THE OTHER ISSUES I’M
SURE ARE GOING TO COME UP SO I

06:07:48.932,06:07:52.166
WON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH
THAT.
BUT WE FEEL STRONGLY THAT IN

06:07:52.168,06:08:00.477
THE MEETINGS THAT WE’VE HAD
WITH COUNCIL AS WELL AS THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION AND THE

06:08:00.479,06:08:06.928
ADJACENT LAND OWNER, THE CPEG
TEAM HERE IN CALGARY, THAT WE
HAVE MADE QUITE SUBSTANTIAL

06:08:06.930,06:08:11.064
COMPROMISES ALONG THE WAY WITH
THIS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.
WE ARE AT THE END OF A LARGER

06:08:11.066,06:08:16.335
DEVELOPMENT THAT’S HAPPENING
AS YOU SAW EARLIER TO SAY EAST
AND TO THE SOUTH OF US THAT

06:08:16.337,06:08:22.280
WAS REDESIGNATED LAST SUMMER
TO RC-1 WITH DIRECT CONTROLS
PLACED ON IT.

06:08:22.282,06:08:26.619
AND ESSENTIALLY WE ARE THE
LAST OF THAT AREA TO BE
DEVELOPED.

06:08:26.621,06:08:31.587
WHICH EVERYTHING ELSE IN THAT
AREA ALREADY HAS BEEN REZONED.
THANK YOU.

06:08:31.589,06:08:35.392
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU, THAT’S HELPFUL CONTEXT.
I DO HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR

06:08:35.394,06:08:47.330
YOU, ALDERMAN CARRA?
>> I’M ASSUMING THAT NOT
CARRYING THROUGH TPC WAS A BIT

06:08:47.332,06:08:50.263
OF A SHOCK TO YOU GUYS?
>> CORRECT.
>> THERE WAS A DISCUSSION

06:08:50.265,06:08:56.267
ABOUT CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION,
I UNDERSTAND, AT CPC?
CAN YOU TELL US WHAT THAT

06:08:56.269,06:09:02.535
MEANS TO YOU AND WHAT, YOU
KNOW, YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT
CONVERSATION — OR –

06:09:02.537,06:09:05.778
>> WELL, I WAS A LITTLE
SURPRISED TO IT IN LIGHT OF
THE FACT THAT WE ARE THE LAST

06:09:05.780,06:09:08.946
PIECE TO BE DEVELOPED THIS
THAT AREA.
I DO UNDERSTAND THE

06:09:08.948,06:09:15.327
COMMUNITY’S CONCERNS.
I DO UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR
THE AS SPEND TREES AND THE

06:09:15.329,06:09:19.093
PRESERVATION OF THE WETLANDS
AND WE FEEL WE’VE GONE TO
GREAT LENGTHS TO TRY TO

06:09:19.095,06:09:24.203
PROTECT THOSE AREAS TO THE
BEST WE CAN AND TO DONATE AS
MUCH AS WE CAN TO MAINTAINING

06:09:24.205,06:09:30.011
AN MR.
>> OKAY.
SO THE CONCEPT BEHIND

06:09:30.013,06:09:34.946
CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION IS
THAT YOU ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE
SITE AND YOU DESIGN YOUR

06:09:34.948,06:09:37.977
HOUSING AND YOUR LOTTING
AROUND THE NATURAL FEATURES
RATHER THAN SORT OF SAYING

06:09:37.979,06:09:41.553
WE’RE GOING TO KEEP THIS AND
WE’LL SAVE THAT IN TWO BIG
CHUNKS.

06:09:41.555,06:09:46.755
IS THERE EVER ANY
CONSIDERATION IN PURSUING A
CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION PLAN?

06:09:46.757,06:09:51.661
>> THAT IS WHY WE’VE — THAT
IS WHY WE’VE CHOSE TONE LEAVE
THAT MR STRIP.

06:09:51.663,06:09:56.712
IT HAS THE MOST SIGNIFICANCE
ON THE SITE.
IT HAS THE NICEST TREE GROWTH.

06:09:56.714,06:10:04.558
WHERE THE EXISTING HOME IS, IS
CULTURED GRASS, NON— OR WHAT
DO THEY CALL IT, NON— WHEN

06:10:04.560,06:10:10.755
THEY DON’T BELONG TO THIS AREA
TYPE TREES.
THAT THERE IS A LITTLE NOB AND

06:10:10.757,06:10:16.854
KETTLE AT THE VERY ENTRANCE.
TO DESIGN A HOUSE THAT WOULD
SIT AROUND THE TREES, WE’VE

06:10:16.856,06:10:22.693
KEPT OUR LOT SIZES TO A
SIMILAR LOT SIZE TO THE REST
OF THE LOTS IN THE AREA.

06:10:22.695,06:10:27.667
WE’VE TRIED TO KEEP THEM
SMALLER SO THAT WE COULD
RETAIN SOME SORT OF KNOB AND

06:10:27.669,06:10:33.178
KETTLE IN ONE CONCENTRATED
AREA RATHER THAN TRYING TO
INTERSPERSE AND NOT REALLY

06:10:33.180,06:10:38.840
HAVE A SUCCESSFUL USE OF THE
KNOB AND KETTLE AREA.
>> OKAY.

06:10:38.842,06:10:45.450
SO THEN THE ANSWER IS…
>> YES, WE DID.
YES, WE DID, BY CREATING THAT

06:10:45.452,06:10:49.118
MR AND LOOKING AT THE LAND USE,
YES, WE DID.
>> OKAY.

06:10:49.120,06:10:55.627
>> 30% OF THE LAND HAS BEEN
TURNED OVER TO CONSERVATION.
INSTEAD OF NORMALLY IN A

06:10:55.629,06:11:00.936
SUBDIVISION, THE CITY WOULD
WOULD ONLY ASK FOR 10%; IN
THIS CASE NONE WAS REQUIRED

06:11:00.938,06:11:05.742
AND THE DEVELOPER HAS CHOSEN
TO GIVE 30% FOR CONSERVATION.
>> OKAY.

06:11:05.744,06:11:11.846
SO TECHNICALLY A CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION BUT I UNDERSTAND
WHAT YOU GUYS ARE BRINGING TO

06:11:11.848,06:11:17.043
THE TABLE.
WOULD THERE BE ANY APPETITE TO
PURSUE AN ACTUAL CONSERVATION

06:11:17.045,06:11:20.123
SUBDIVISION APPROACH GIVEN
WHAT YOU HEARD INTEREST CPC
OR…

06:11:20.125,06:11:23.160
>> I GUESS THAT WOULD REALLY
DEPEND ON THE OUTCOME OF THIS
MEETING.

06:11:23.162,06:11:25.262
>> THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE
TO ME AS WELL.
OKAY.

06:11:25.264,06:11:31.762
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,
ALDERMAN CARRA.

06:11:31.764,06:11:36.506
ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
ONE QUESTION I ASKED

06:11:36.508,06:11:40.617
PREVIOUSLY TO ADMINISTRATION,
WHICH YOU PROBABLY ANTICIPATED,
IS IN THE AREA THAT WAS DEEMED

06:11:40.619,06:11:47.921
TO BE SEASONAL WETLANDS.
WHEN YOU — CAN YOU SHOW ME
WHERE ROUGHLY THAT LIES WITHIN

06:11:47.923,06:11:58.684
THE SITE?
IS THIS THE SEASONAL WETLANDS
IN A WINTER CONDITION?

06:11:58.686,06:12:04.327
>> I’M SORRY.
I WAS SHOWING THE RESULTS.
>> THE SEASONAL WETLANDS IS

06:12:04.329,06:12:11.465
THIS PORTION IN HERE.
THAT HAS BEEN CREATED AS A
SEASONAL WET — IT DRIES RIGHT

06:12:11.467,06:12:17.341
OUT WHEN THERE IS NO WATER.
IT WAS ONE OF THE TYPICAL FOR
THE BEARSPAW OR THAT RIDGE UP

06:12:17.343,06:12:23.072
THERE IS THAT THE GRAVEL LINER
UNDERNEATH DOESN’T RETAIN THE
WATER.

06:12:23.074,06:12:33.180
THIS BLUE AREA DOWN HERE IS A
DESIGNED STORM WATER POND FOR
THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY.

06:12:33.182,06:12:39.521
THIS PARCEL OF LAND TO THE
EAST IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL
RESERVE WETLAND.

06:12:39.523,06:12:45.930
SO THERE’S A MIX OF LOWLANDS,
STORM PONDS AND ENVIRONMENTAL
WETLANDS.

06:12:45.932,06:12:50.136
>> OKAY.
THAT SEASONAL STORM POND, IS
THAT SOMETHING YOU’RE PLANNING

06:12:50.138,06:12:56.208
ON RETAINING?
>> THIS SEASONAL POND HERE?
YES, WE’RE PROPOSING NOT TO DO

06:12:56.210,06:13:01.214
– TO MAKE THAT PART OF THE MR,
TO LEAVE THE MR AREA AS
NATURAL.

06:13:01.216,06:13:06.479
IT’S GOT THE MOST
CONCENTRATION OF INDIGENOUS
TREES AND GRASSLANDS ON IT.

06:13:06.481,06:13:09.746
WE’D PREFER TO LEAVE THAT AS
EXISTING.
>> IS THAT THE AREA THAT WAS

06:13:09.748,06:13:14.623
SUBJECT OF THE COMMENTS
PROVIDED TO US BY THE
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION?

06:13:14.625,06:13:17.328
>> CORRECT.
>> CORRECT.
BUT YOU ARE STILL GOING TO

06:13:17.330,06:13:21.456
PRESERVE IT.
>> YES.
THEY WANTED A SETBACK FROM THE

06:13:21.458,06:13:26.931
EXISTING HOMES AND THEY WANTED
THE LOWLANDS PRESERVED.
>> SO 21 LOTS, SO THEY’RE ALL

06:13:26.933,06:13:32.473
GOING TO BE ALIGNED ON THE
EAST SIDE OF THAT PARCEL, IS
THAT THE WAY THE INTENT IT?

06:13:32.475,06:13:35.805
>> YES, SIR.
>> ALL ACCESS THROUGH THE
EXTENSION OF ROCKY RIDGE PLACE

06:13:35.807,06:13:41.140
OR WHATEVER IT IS?
>> ACTUALLY, ROCKY RIDGE PLACE,
WE’RE IN NEGOTIATION WITH THE

06:13:41.142,06:13:44.881
ADJACENT LAND OWNER TO DO A
LAND SWAP.
ROCKY RIDGE PLACE WOULD BECOME

06:13:44.883,06:13:48.780
PART OF OUR PROPERTY AND AS
YOU CAN SEE FROM THE SHADOW
PLANS, WE’RE PROPOSING A

06:13:48.782,06:13:53.119
ROADWAY DIRECTLY THROUGH THE
CENTRE OF OUR PROPERTY TO
LINEUP WITH THE ADJACENT LAND

06:13:53.121,06:13:58.292
OWNER SO THAT THERE’S TWO
POINTS OF ACCESS THROUGHOUT
THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.

06:13:58.294,06:14:02.629
>> OKAY.
SO THAT IS — I’M JUST TRYING
TO FIGURE OUT HOW YOU’RE GOING

06:14:02.631,06:14:06.235
TO PLACE YOUR LOTS ON THERE.
YOU’RE GOING TO BE ON EITHER
SIDE OF THAT ROAD?

06:14:06.237,06:14:10.376
>> YES.
>> OKAY.
SO THOSE ARE THE THREE

06:14:10.378,06:14:14.883
PROPERTIES YOU WERE REFERRING
TO THAT WILL BE IMPACTED BY
YOUR DEVELOPMENT –

06:14:14.885,06:14:18.119
>> AT THE TOP WEST CORNER,
YES.
>> ONLY LOOKS LIKE TWO THERE.

06:14:18.121,06:14:22.960
>> RIGHT NOW THE DEVELOPER IS
IN CONSULTATION WITH THE
SURROUNDING LAND OWNER.

06:14:22.962,06:14:28.764
THEY CURRENTLY OWN THIS –
SORRY, THIS STRIP OF LAND HERE
WHICH IS BEING USED AS A

06:14:28.766,06:14:34.599
TEMPORARY ACCESS TO THE
BUILDING.
AND THIS CHUNK OF LAND UP HERE,

06:14:34.601,06:14:39.371
WHICH IS CURRENTLY ZONED AS
RC-1.
>> SO IT’S GOING TO BE A LAND

06:14:39.373,06:14:46.278
SWAP OR SOMETHING?
IT’S GOING TO CHANGE THE
ACTUAL SITE DIMENSION?

06:14:46.280,06:14:51.049
>> YES, IT WILL CHANGE AFTER
THE FACT.
AS YOU SEE HERE, ROCKY RIDGE

06:14:51.051,06:14:55.687
PLACE AND THAT SMALL TRIANGLE
AT THE TOP OF THE CORNER,
THOSE HAVE ALREADY BEEN

06:14:55.689,06:14:59.260
REDESIGNATED.
>> OH, I SEE.
>> ONE HAS RC-1 DESIGNATION,

06:14:59.262,06:15:06.161
THE OTHER ONE HAS THE RC-1CC.
>> OKAY.
SO NOW THOSE PORTIONS OF MR

06:15:06.163,06:15:13.061
LANDS, HOW MUCH OF THOSE LANDS
THAT ARE BEING DEDICATED ARE
ACTUALLY MR VERSUS ER?

06:15:13.063,06:15:29.778
DO YOU HAVE ANY KIND OF ORDER?
>> THIS PARCEL OF LAND IS 1.65
HECTARES.

06:15:29.780,06:15:38.194
OF THAT,.83 HECTARES WOULD BE
TURNED INTO HOUSING AND ROADS.
.41 WOULD BE MR AND .17 WOULD

06:15:38.196,06:15:46.598
BE ER.
>> SO YOU ARE DEDICATEDING –
DEDICATING 1.01 ACRES, IS THAT

06:15:46.600,06:15:58.642
CORRECT, OF MR VOLUNTARILY?
>> .41 OF MR VOLUNTARILY, YES.
>> .41 HECTARES, YES, 1.0 –

06:15:58.644,06:16:03.313
>> 24 — 25% OF THE SITE –
THE ER WOULD HAVE BEEN TO BE
DEDICATED ANYWAYS BECAUSE IT’S

06:16:03.315,06:16:11.117
PART OF THE STORM PANNED/…
>> I REALIZE THAT.
24.8% YOU’RE DEDICATING

06:16:11.119,06:16:14.056
VOLUNTARILY.
OKAY, THANK YOU, YOUR WORSHIP.
NO FURTHER QUESTIONS.

06:16:14.058,06:16:17.787
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,
ALDERMAN CHABOT.
ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS FOR

06:16:17.789,06:16:19.490
THESE FOLKS?
ALL RIGHT.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

06:16:19.492,06:16:22.123
HERE AND THANKS FOR YOUR
PATIENCE IN US GETTING TO THIS
ITEM.

06:16:22.125,06:16:25.192
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN
FAVOUR OF THIS PROPOSAL?
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN

06:16:25.194,06:16:36.054
FAVOUR?
ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION TO THIS PROPOSAL?

06:16:47.855,06:16:50.289
HELLO, THANKS AS WELL TO YOU
FOR YOUR PATIENCE AS WE GET TO
THIS.

06:16:50.291,06:16:53.754
>> BEEN A LONG DAY.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: YES,
YES, IT HAS.

06:16:53.756,06:16:57.232
>> I WANTED TO SHOW YOU THE
PROPOSED –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi:

06:16:57.234,06:17:00.939
INTRODUCE YOURSELF FIRST,
PLEASE.
>> MY NAME IS DIANE COLEY.

06:17:00.941,06:17:05.911
I RESIDE AT 8 ROCKCLIFFE POINT
WHICH WOULD BE THIS HOUSE
RIGHT HERE.

06:17:05.913,06:17:10.862
(INAUDIBLE) — BY THIS
PARTICULAR THING.
THIS IS THE SECOND PLAN THAT

06:17:10.864,06:17:18.535
HAS BEEN PROJECTED FOR THIS
PARTICULAR LOT OF LAND.
ORIGINALLY THEY WERE NOT

06:17:18.537,06:17:25.074
INCLUDEING THIS PARTICULAR
PORTION OF LAND AND THE
ROADWAY WAS STILL OWNED BY THE

06:17:25.076,06:17:30.487
OTHER DEVELOPER.
IT HAS SWITCHED FROM BEING
ALONG THIS AREA AS YOU SEE TO

06:17:30.489,06:17:36.564
THIS AREA AS IT STANDS NOW.
AFFECTING DIFFERENT HOME
OWNERS AT BOTH TIMES,

06:17:36.566,06:17:44.431
OBVIOUSLY, IN OUR DEVELOPMENT
WHICH IS ACTUALLY ROCKCLIFFE
POINT, NOT ROCKCLIFFE PLACE.

06:17:44.433,06:17:51.317
IN REGARDS TO THIS, WE HAVE A
COUPLE OF PROBLEMS: OBVIOUSLY
THEY COULD NOT HAVE BUILT

06:17:51.319,06:17:56.813
WITHOUT THIS LAND SWAP RIGHT
HERE.
IT IS INCORRECT IN SAYING

06:17:56.815,06:18:00.909
THERE IS NO OTHER SWAMP LAND,
IT IS RIGHT HERE ON THIS POND
HERE ON THIS SIDE OF THE ROAD.

06:18:00.911,06:18:08.419
IT IS VERY LOW AND IT’S FILLED
90% OF THE TIME WITH WATER.
THEY’RE PROPOSING TO BUILD TWO

06:18:08.421,06:18:14.355
HOUSES OVER THAT SITE SO I’M
NOT EXACTLY SURE HOW
(INAUDIBLE) — WHEN THEY

06:18:14.357,06:18:19.087
REALIZE THEY ARE OVER A SWAMP
LAND.
THE OTHER THING IS IS THAT THE

06:18:19.089,06:18:25.658
TREES, THIS IS A VERY — THIS
TRIANGLE IS EXTREMELY SLOPED.
EXTREMELY SLOPED AREA.

06:18:25.660,06:18:31.192
IT WILL HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY
FLATTENED IN ORDER FOR THEM TO
BUILD A HOUSE IN IT OR AT

06:18:31.194,06:18:34.961
LEAST THE GRADE IS GOING TO
HAVE TO BE CHANGED
SUBSTANTIALLY, REMOVING ALL OF

06:18:34.963,06:18:41.574
THE PRETTY TREES THAT ARE
THERE.
SO THIS IS THINGS THAT WE JUST

06:18:41.576,06:18:44.683
REALLY DON’T FEEL THAT WE CAN
LIVE WITH.
I MEAN, THESE ARE HOUSES THAT

06:18:44.685,06:18:50.853
ARE IN THAT CUL-DE-SAC
PROBABLY AVERAGE $1.1 MILLION
AND MORE.

06:18:50.855,06:18:56.123
AND PEOPLE THAT HAVE THAT KIND
OF MONEY DON’T PARTICULARLY
WANT AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT

06:18:56.125,06:19:02.898
WE WOULDN’T HAVE GREEN SPACE
BEHIND US.
SO TO BE ALL OF A SUDDEN BEING

06:19:02.900,06:19:06.174
TOLD NO, YOU’RE GOING TO BACK
ON SOMEONE ELSE WITH A
STRUCTURE THAT IS AS HIGH AS

06:19:06.176,06:19:11.843
YOURS AND BE LOOKING FACE TO
FACE ON THEM HAS REALLY HEATED
THE COMMUNITY.

06:19:11.845,06:19:19.314
WE’RE VERY UPSET ABOUT IT.
WHAT THE OTHER THING IS, IF
YOU LOOK AT LOTS 2 AND 3, YOU

06:19:19.316,06:19:24.947
HAVE ONE SIDE OF THAT
PARTICULAR — THOSE PARTICULAR
LOTS THAT IS EXTREMELY SHORT.

06:19:24.949,06:19:32.262
I THINK MY ESTIMATES WERE IT’S
AROUND 65 FEET ON ONE SIDE.
I DON’T THINK THAT’S A

06:19:32.264,06:19:35.962
LIVEABLE SPACE AT ALL FOR THEM
TO PUT A HOUSE UP, IT MEANS
THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO THROW

06:19:35.964,06:19:41.564
THEM AN EGG THROUGH THE BACK
WINDOW, BASICALLY.
BY THE TIME THAT THEY PUT UP

06:19:41.566,06:19:48.109
THAT STRUCTURE.
EVEN WITH IT ALLOWING FOR 25
FEET AT THE BACK OF THE HOUSE,

06:19:48.111,06:19:52.673
BECAUSE OF THE SEVERE ANGLE ON
THAT ONE CORNER, IT WILL BE
EXTREMELY CLOSE TO THE BACK OF

06:19:52.675,06:19:56.584
THE HOUSE.
TO OUR HOUSES.
SO THIS HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR

06:19:56.586,06:20:03.887
US.
THE OTHER THING IS IS THAT,
YOU KNOW, WHAT WE REALLY WOULD

06:20:03.889,06:20:09.237
LIKE TO SEE IS MORE OF A
LINEAR PLAN OF THE GREEN
SPACE.

06:20:09.239,06:20:11.870
WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE US NOT
HAVING TO BACK ON OTHER
PEOPLE.

06:20:11.872,06:20:17.704
THE OTHER AREAS THAT ARE
DEVELOPING IN ROCK LAKE ALL
HAVE GREEN SPACES SURROUNDING

06:20:17.706,06:20:22.011
THEIR HOUSES, ALL OF THEM.
FOR THEM TO PROPOSE THAT
THEY’RE GOING TO BACK ON TO

06:20:22.013,06:20:26.211
PART OF OUR COMMUNITY HAS BEEN
VERY UPSETTING FOR US.
WE HAD SUGGESTED THAT THEY PUT

06:20:26.213,06:20:34.950
IN A 3 METER — OR TO PUT IN A
BIKE PATH BEHIND US, HOWEVER
THAT HAS BEEN A PROBLEMATIC

06:20:34.952,06:20:38.225
FOR SOME OF THE HOME OWNERS
BECAUSE THEY WORRY ABOUT
SAFETY.

06:20:38.227,06:20:42.865
AS WELL, WE HAVE BEEN
ORPHANNED, UNFORTUNATELY, BY
ROCKY RIDGE.

06:20:42.867,06:20:46.012
ROCK LAKE IS NO LONGER
CONSIDERED PART OF ROCKY
RIDGE.

06:20:46.014,06:20:49.615
YUP.
WE ARE NOT — ONLY — WE WERE
ONLY ALLOWED TO USE THE

06:20:49.617,06:20:54.687
FACILITIES OF ROCKY RIDGE
BECAUSE WE HAD BEEN
GRANDFATHERED IN.

06:20:54.689,06:20:59.321
THEY’RE TAKING OUT THE REST OF
ROCK PLACE.
SO MAINTENANCE OF THOSE

06:20:59.323,06:21:04.456
PATHWAYS, I DON’T KNOW WHO’S
GOING TO MAINTAIN THEM.
AT THIS POINT.

06:21:04.458,06:21:10.798
WHAT WE WANT IS A BUFFER ZONE.
WE WANT THE TREES TO REMAIN.
WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN THOSE

06:21:10.800,06:21:17.040
UNUSABLE LOTS 1-4, WHICH WE
FEEL ARE BACKING ON TO OUR
PROPERTIES, THERE IS NO PARKS

06:21:17.042,06:21:21.741
NEARBY FOR KIDS TO PLAY N WE
HAVE TO GO ACROSS ROCKY RIDGE
ROAD.

06:21:21.743,06:21:25.778
TO MY KNOWLEDGE, NONE OF THE
OTHER DEVELOPERS HAVE EVEN
DONE IT, HAVE EVEN SUGGESTED A

06:21:25.780,06:21:28.380
PARK THERE.
THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO
USE THE PARK FACILITIES THAT

06:21:28.382,06:21:33.816
ARE AT THE ROCKY RIDGE
HOMEOWNER’S ASSOCIATION.
SO WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING IS

06:21:33.818,06:21:38.878
THAT THAT PIECE OF LAND BE
LEFT AS IS EXCEPT FOR THE
CENTRE AREA WHICH IS TO BE

06:21:38.880,06:21:41.780
HOLLOWED OUT FOR A CHILDREN’S
PARK AREA.
SO ON OUR SIDE OF THE STREET,

06:21:41.782,06:21:47.119
THAT’S WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO
SEE AS THE FIRST FOUR LOTS TO
BE HOLLOWED OUT.

06:21:47.121,06:21:56.296
IF THAT CAN’T BE COMPLETELY
REALIZED, ANY ADJACENT
PROPERTY WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE

06:21:56.298,06:22:00.801
MADE A BUNGALOW SO THAT WE ARE
NOT HAVING TO FACE THEM RIGHT
DIRECTLY.

06:22:00.803,06:22:03.771
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: ALL
RIGHT.
THANK YOU.

06:22:03.773,06:22:06.603
MISS COLLIE, SOMETHING YOU
SAID CONCERNED ME, YOU SAID
YOU WERE PROMISED THAT YOU

06:22:06.605,06:22:09.305
WOULD ALWAYS BACK ON TO GREEN
SPACE.
WHO MADE YOU THAT PROMISE?

06:22:09.307,06:22:13.974
>> WE WERE PROMISED –
DIFFERENT PEOPLE WERE PROMISED
IT FOR — CERTAINLY THE HOME

06:22:13.976,06:22:17.948
OWNERS THAT MOVED IN NEXT TO
ME WAS TOLD THAT NO, THERE
WILL NEVER BE DEVELOPMENT

06:22:17.950,06:22:20.508
BEHIND YOU –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: BUT
SURELY — BUT SURELY IT WASN’T

06:22:20.510,06:22:23.855
THE LAND OWNER OF THAT LAND
WHO MADE YOU THAT PROMISE.
>> THE PEOPLE BEHIND US?

06:22:23.857,06:22:25.963
NO.
NO.
BUT IT WAS –

06:22:25.965,06:22:30.005
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I MEAN,
I’M HAVING A LITTLE BIT OF
TROUBLE HERE, AND I DON’T MEAN

06:22:30.007,06:22:33.778
TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT, BUT
SURELY YOUR NEIGHBOURS ARE NOT
SUGGESTING THAT JUST BECAUSE

06:22:33.780,06:22:37.940
THEY SPEND A — SPENT A LOT OF
MONEY A ON THEIR LAND THAT
THEY CAN SAY WHAT OTHER

06:22:37.942,06:22:42.018
PRIVATE LANDOWNERS CAN DO WITH
THEIR LAND BECAUSE SOME THIRD
PARTY MADE THEM A PROMISE.

06:22:42.020,06:22:44.219
>> I UNDERSTAND THAT.
I UNDERSTAND THAT.
BUT THE WHOLE IDEA OF THIS

06:22:44.221,06:22:49.425
AREA WAS TO MAINTAIN THE
NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: BUT

06:22:49.427,06:22:54.821
AGAIN, WHOSE IDEA?
>> WELL, I GUESS IT’S PROBABLY,
YOU KNOW, YOU BUY YOUR HOUSE

06:22:54.823,06:22:59.488
AND YOU LISTEN TO YOUR REAL
ESTATE AGENT AND YOU LISTEN TO
– THEN THEN THIS IS SORT OF A

06:22:59.490,06:23:04.364
BIG PROBLEM; RIGHT?
IF YOU’RE MAKING $1.1 MILLION
INVESTMENT, I WOULD SUGGEST

06:23:04.366,06:23:06.998
THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW MORE
THAN WHAT THE REAL ESTATE
AGENT IS SAYING TO YOU.

06:23:07.000,06:23:10.561
>> YES.
YES.
HOWEVER, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

06:23:10.563,06:23:16.410
OTHER SIDE OF ROCKY — OF ROCK
LAKE, IT IS COMPLETELY
BUFFERED.

06:23:16.412,06:23:22.050
THE OTHER COMMUNITIES THAT ARE
GOING INTO THAT AREA, ECHO
HAVEN, COMPLETELY BUFFERED.

06:23:22.052,06:23:28.059
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ROCK LAKE
SUMMIT, COMPLETELY BUFFERED.
SO WE’RE JUST ASKING FOR THE

06:23:28.061,06:23:34.328
SAME THING.
WE’RE ASKING FOR BUFFER AROUND
US.

06:23:34.330,06:23:39.473
THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU.
WELL, THIS IS INTERESTING.

06:23:39.475,06:23:43.215
I’M VERY SYMPATHETIC WITH THE
ATTEMPT TO PRESERVE THE GREEN
SPACE.

06:23:43.217,06:23:51.224
YOU KIND OF LOST ME WHEN YOU
TALKED ABOUT WHAT AN OWNER OF
EXPENSIVE HOMES DESERVES IN

06:23:51.226,06:24:00.435
CONTRAST WITH OTHERS.
BUT I’M GETTING OVER THAT ONE.
AND I’M GOING TO ASK YOU A

06:24:00.437,06:24:04.497
QUESTION ABOUT WHAT ALDERMAN
CARRA AND I HAVE BEEN
DISCUSSING WHICH IS

06:24:04.499,06:24:07.737
CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION.
AND THIS IS NOT CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION.

06:24:07.739,06:24:10.967
>> NO, IT’S NOT.
>> WHAT IS CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION, HOWEVER, IS TO

06:24:10.969,06:24:18.975
LOOK AT LAND, ITS MOST
APPROPRIATE IN LAND LIKE THIS
THAT HAVE NATURAL ASSETS OR IN

06:24:18.977,06:24:24.151
SOME CASES HISTORICAL ASSETS,
AND YOU CLUSTER THE
DEVELOPMENT IN THE DISTURBED

06:24:24.153,06:24:31.792
AREAS OR THE LEASED — LEAST
VALUABLE ECOLOGICAL AREAS.
BUT WHAT DO YOU DO IS YOU

06:24:31.794,06:24:37.092
BENEFIT THE LAND OWNER BY
INCREASING THE DENSITY SO THAT
THERE’S ACTUALLY A REASON TO

06:24:37.094,06:24:42.364
DO IT.
SO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT
CLUSTERING DENSITY, IT’S DONE

06:24:42.366,06:24:51.049
A LOT IN THE U.S.
IT GENERATES A LOT OF VALUE
FOR THE HOME OWNERS.

06:24:51.051,06:24:55.156
SO WHAT WE HAVE A TENDENCY –
AND I’M GETTING TO A QUESTION,
I REALLY AM.

06:24:55.158,06:25:01.731
WE HAVE A TENDENCY TO DO IN
SORT OF TRADITIONAL SUBURBAN
DEVELOPMENT IS WE CARVE UP THE

06:25:01.733,06:25:10.967
LOTS E QUA DISTANT AND — EQUI
DISTANT AND CLEAR THE LAND AND
KIND OF IGNORE THE NATURAL

06:25:10.969,06:25:14.707
ASSET, OR PUT SOME ASIDE AND
NOT DEVELOP ON THAT.
SO I’M WONDERING WHAT THE

06:25:14.709,06:25:22.076
TOLERANCE IS OF YOUR COMMUNITY
TO LOOK AT AN INCREASED
DENSITY, BUT ON DISTURBED LAND

06:25:22.078,06:25:26.582
AND PRESERVING THE NATURAL
ASSETS OF THIS REALLY
BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF PROPERTY

06:25:26.584,06:25:32.445
OF?
BECAUSE I HEAR TWO DIFFERENT
THINGS: I HEAR LOW DENSITY,

06:25:32.447,06:25:38.654
AND I HEAR PRESERVE THE
NATURAL ASSETS, AND THAT MEANS
THAT THE LAND OWNER TAKES THE

06:25:38.656,06:25:43.424
FINANCIAL HIT.
I KNOW WE CAN’T TALK ABOUT
FINANCES HERE, BUT THE WHOLE

06:25:43.426,06:25:47.900
WAY WE PLAN HAS TO HAVE
DEVELOPERS ON SIDE.
SO WE CREATE VALUE OR THE

06:25:47.902,06:25:55.305
WHOLE CONCEPT OF IT IS
CREATING VALUE BY GIVING THEM
VALUE ELSEWHERE.

06:25:55.307,06:26:00.178
WHICH IS ON THE DISTURBED
LAND.
SO — AND I HEAR TWO THINGS.

06:26:00.180,06:26:05.918
IS IT SOMETHING THAT YOUR
COMMUNITY WOULD BE WILLING TO
EXAMPLE?

06:26:05.920,06:26:09.886
>> PUTTING IN WHAT WOULD BE
YOUR EXAMPLE OF A HIGHER
DENSITY?

06:26:09.888,06:26:15.827
>> I’M NOT TALKING A TOWER BUT
MAYBE TOWNHOUSE DEVELOPMENT OR
IT MAY BE SMALLER LOT

06:26:15.829,06:26:21.799
DEVELOPMENT BUT IN A MORE
CONCENTRATED AREA SO ALL THE
REALLY EXQUISITE PARTS OF THIS

06:26:21.801,06:26:27.574
PROPERTY ARE PRESERVED.
>> YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY I’M ONE
MEMBER OF — IT’S HARD FOR ME

06:26:27.576,06:26:30.208
TO SAY THAT.
>> AND I KNOW YOU’RE ONLY
SPEAKING FOR YOURSELF.

06:26:30.210,06:26:33.149
>> I JUST KNOW THAT WE WOULD
LIKE TO SEE THE TREES STAY
BEHIND US.

06:26:33.151,06:26:36.554
I MEAN, THEY’RE BEAUTIFUL.
THEY’RE BEAUTIFUL.
AS WELL YOU HAVE TO REALIZE,

06:26:36.556,06:26:44.725
IF THEY SHUT OFF THAT CORRIDOR,
WE HAVE DEER AND MOOSE THAT GO
AND ARE IN THE SUMMER AT THAT

06:26:44.727,06:26:47.994
BOTTOM POND.
HOW ARE THEY GOING TO GET OUT?
I HAVE COYOTES THAT GO THROUGH

06:26:47.996,06:26:52.136
THE BACK OF THAT, I CAN HEAR
THEM AT NIGHT, BELIEVE ME,
THEY’RE LOUD.

06:26:52.138,06:26:55.199
WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO GO?
THEY’RE GOING TO END UP ON OUR
STREET.

06:26:55.201,06:27:01.572
>> BUT I THINK THE CRITICAL
QUESTION FOR ME IS WHETHER YOU
– YOU WOULD TOLERATE, I KNOW

06:27:01.574,06:27:06.620
YOU CAN’T SPEAK FOR YOUR
COMMUNITY, WITH CONCENTRATING
THAT DENSITY, AND USUALLY TO

06:27:06.622,06:27:13.597
ENCOURAGE THIS KIND OF THING,
YOU NEED TO ADD MORE DENSITY,
SO YOU’D GET MORE UNITS PER

06:27:13.599,06:27:19.024
OVERALL DEVELOPMENT THAN YOU
WOULD WITH CARVING IT UP EQUA
DISTANT.

06:27:19.026,06:27:21.559
>> I WOULD PREFER THAT.
>> YOU WOULD PREFER IT.
>> I WOULD PREFER IT.

06:27:21.561,06:27:24.294
YEAH.
IF IT WAS CENTERED IN THE
MIDDLE OF THAT LAND OR MORE

06:27:24.296,06:27:30.137
TOWARDS THE POND AREA, I WOULD
PREFER THAT TO WHAT IT IS NOW
WHICH IS REALLY BACKING RIGHT

06:27:30.139,06:27:33.942
ON TO PEOPLE.
>> AND IT’S CERTAINLY MY
EXPERIENCE IS THAT MOST PEOPLE

06:27:33.944,06:27:37.006
DO WHEN THEY SEE THE
DIFFERENCE.
IT’S JUST WE HAVEN’T REALLY

06:27:37.008,06:27:39.735
DONE A VERY GOOD JOB OF
SHOWING WHAT THE DIFFERENCE
IS.

06:27:39.737,06:27:45.942
OKAY.
THANK YOU.
>> HI, Mr. MAYOR AND COUNCIL,

06:27:45.944,06:27:53.343
I’M A NEIGHBOUR OF DIANE’S IN
LOT…
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: SORRY,

06:27:53.345,06:27:58.282
YOUR NAME IS, SIR?
>> CHRIS, KRUPA.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,

06:27:58.284,06:28:01.318
Mr. KRUPA.
>> I BROUGHT SOME MAPS AND
STUFF BUT I DON’T THINK I’M

06:28:01.320,06:28:04.787
GOING TO HAND THEM OUT JUST
BASICALLY SHOWING ALL THE
OTHER DEVELOPMENTS AROUND THE

06:28:04.789,06:28:07.253
AREA, HOW THEY ALL HAVE
BUFFERS.
AND WITH PUTTING THESE FOUR

06:28:07.255,06:28:13.166
LOTS IN BEHIND US THERE, IT
OBVIOUSLY IT TAKES THE BUFFER
AWAY FROM US.

06:28:13.168,06:28:30.979
BUT IT SHOWS HERE ON –
(INAUDIBLE)
– ON THOSE PLANS IT’S GOT ONE

06:28:30.981,06:28:35.589
LOT.
YEAH.
AND THAT TRIANGLE THERE –

06:28:35.591,06:28:44.201
(INAUDIBLE) SO MY BIGGEST
CONCERN IS THAT — WELL FIRST
OF ALL THE ELEVATION DROP OFF

06:28:44.203,06:28:49.133
FROM GRADE OF MY HOUSE IS
ABOUT 20 FEET TO THE BASE OF
THAT, MIDDLE OF THAT TRIANGLE.

06:28:49.135,06:28:55.837
BUT TO PUT THREE LOTS IN THERE
AND TO HAVE THE SETBACK AND
WHATNOT, LIKE DIANE WAS SAYING,

06:28:55.839,06:28:59.233
THOSE LOTS ARE GOING TO BE 60,
65 FEET OR AT LEAST ONE OF
THEM WILL BE.

06:28:59.235,06:29:04.636
SO MY BIGGEST THING IS THE
BUFFER BEHIND EVERYONE, WE
WANT TO KEEP THE TREES.

06:29:04.638,06:29:07.502
I MEAN, I KNOW THEY WERE
TALKING ABOUT A BIKE PATH
GOING BACK THERE BUT THE

06:29:07.504,06:29:15.620
SECURITY AND PRIVACY ISSUE OF
THAT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN THEM
TELLING US THERE’S GOING TO BE

06:29:15.622,06:29:27.838
A BACK ALLEY PUT IN THE BACK
THERE.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY.

06:29:27.840,06:29:46.312
THAT’S REALLY ABOUT IT.
>> Mr. KRUPA, YOU SAID THAT
YOUR HOME IS WHAT, ELEVATED OR

06:29:46.314,06:29:48.353
BELOW THAT?
>> ABOVE.
>> YOU’RE ABOVE THAT.

06:29:48.355,06:29:51.191
>> YEAH.
SO FROM LOT NUMBER 4 WHERE I
AM TO THE BASE OF THAT

06:29:51.193,06:29:54.795
TRIANGLE, LOT NUMBER ONE,
THERE’S ABOUT A 20 FOOT
ELEVATION DIFFERENCE.

06:29:54.797,06:29:57.065
>> OKAY.
IS THERE A RETAINING WALL
BEHIND YOUR PROPERTY?

06:29:57.067,06:29:59.968
>> NO.
>> NO.
THAT’S SOMETHING ELSE I COULD

06:29:59.970,06:30:04.113
HAVE, SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT UP
BUT I DON’T SPEAK IN FRONT OF
PEOPLE TOO OFTEN.

06:30:04.115,06:30:10.814
BUT A RETAINING WALL WOULD BE
SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, IF THEY
KEPT — KEPT 20 FOOT DEPTH OF

06:30:10.816,06:30:15.385
ELEVATION, IF THERE WAS A
RETAINING WALL PUT IN, I’D BE
ALL FOR THAT TOO.

06:30:15.387,06:30:18.687
>> NO, I’M JUST TRYING TO GET

>> NO, THERE’S NO RETAINING

06:30:18.689,06:30:22.397
WALL, JUST A SLOPE 20 FEET
RIGHT DOWN INTO –
>> AND THAT’S TREED UP IN

06:30:22.399,06:30:24.906
THERE; RIGHT?
>> YEAH.
HEAVILY TREED IN THERE; YEAH.

06:30:24.908,06:30:33.539
>> OKAY.
AND ALL OF YOUR MOST OF THESE
PROPERTIES I ASSUME ALL HAVE

06:30:33.541,06:30:38.541
FRONT DRIVES NO, ALLEY?
>> YEAH, NO ALLEYS.
>> FRONT DRIVES.

06:30:38.543,06:30:40.143
OKAY.
THAT’S ALL THE QUESTIONS I
HAVE FOR YOU.

06:30:40.145,06:30:42.785
THANK YOU.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,
ALDERMAN CHABOT.

06:30:42.787,06:30:44.885
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR THESE
FOLKS?
ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU SO MUCH

06:30:44.887,06:30:49.050
FOR BEING HERE.
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION TO THIS?

06:30:49.052,06:31:04.903
ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK IN
OPPOSITION?
>> MAYOR, ALDERMEN, MY NAME IS

06:31:04.905,06:31:12.700
ASHKA FAQ.
I’VE LIVED HERE SINCE 1952.
I FIND THIS VERY DISTURBING

06:31:12.702,06:31:22.577
JUST LOOKING AT THE GREENERY,
LUSH AREA THAT I’VE SEEN ON
THE — THAT WAS SHOWED, IT’S

06:31:22.579,06:31:35.277
JUST LIKE PARADISE.
WETLANDS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE
KEPT, LOOK AT SPRUCE MEADOWS

06:31:35.279,06:31:43.185
30 YEARS AGO, THEY BUILD A
ROAD RIGHT THROUGH THE LAKE TO
BUILD SPRUCE MEADOWS.

06:31:43.187,06:31:48.195
AND THERE’S MANY OTHER ONES
WITH WHAT THE CITY DID.
MAYBE THIS WHOLE AREA SHOULD

06:31:48.197,06:31:57.774
HAVE BEEN KEPT.
MAKE A LAKE OUT OF IT.
USE IT FOR LEISURE.

06:31:57.776,06:32:09.389
YOU KNOW, YOU SAY THE COUNCIL
TALKS ABOUT PRESERVING,
CONSERVATION BUT ALL I HEAR IS

06:32:09.391,06:32:24.102
TALK.
WHY?
A SMALL, WET AREA, IT DRIES UP

06:32:24.104,06:32:30.265
VERY QUICKLY.
IF IT’S A BIG, WET AREA, IT
WILL STAY THERE FOREVER.

06:32:30.267,06:32:39.036
BECAUSE THE BOTTOM, IT’S GOT
SILT AND EVERYTHING, IT
FILTERS THE WATER THROUGH THE

06:32:39.038,06:32:46.583
– THROUGH THE SOIL, AND THE
TREES CREATE DAMPNESS, CREATE
– IT CREATES A GOOD

06:32:46.585,06:32:56.218
ENVIRONMENT FOR THE BIRDS,
ANIMALS AND EVERYTHING.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?

06:32:56.220,06:33:03.236
I WAS GOING TO SAY SOMETHING
ABOUT THE PROPOSED FRIENDLY
URBAN — THE BIRD FRIENDLY,

06:33:03.238,06:33:06.075
URBAN DESIGN GUIDELINES.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: TOO
LATE.

06:33:06.077,06:33:10.708
>> NO, I’M JUST SAYING THOUGH,
IT’S THE SAME THING.
IT’S SUPPOSED — WE’RE NOT

06:33:10.710,06:33:15.273
SUPPOSED TO HAVE THE BIRDS FLY
INTO THE WINDOWS.
BUT BIRDS ARE SMART, ANIMALS

06:33:15.275,06:33:20.153
ARE SMART.
THEY’RE PROBABLY SMARTER THAN
PEOPLE ARE.

06:33:20.155,06:33:30.502
BECAUSE THEY DO WITH INSTINCT.
I WATCH A LOT OF DUTY
INDUSTRIES, LIONS AND ALL THE

06:33:30.504,06:33:35.306
– DOCUMENTARIES, LIONS AND
HYENAS, THEY ONLY WILL KILL
FOR FOOD.

06:33:35.308,06:33:39.205
PEOPLE WILL DO FOR GREED,
MONEY AND POWER.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?

06:33:39.207,06:33:42.678
IT IS RELEVANT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: AT
THIS POINT, AT THIS POINT CITY

06:33:42.680,06:33:47.921
COUNCIL MAY DO ANYTHING FOR
FOOD, Mr. FAQ.
I’VE KEPT THEM FROM DINNER.

06:33:47.923,06:33:54.450
>> MAYOR, YOU’VE BEEN AROUND
AND WHAT I’M SAYING ABOUT ALL
THIS, WHY I WAS SAYING ONE

06:33:54.452,06:34:00.780
THING AND DOING SOMETHING
ELSE.
THEY KEEP REPEATING, REPEATING,

06:34:00.782,06:34:18.302
REPEATING.
THE GREEN BUILDINGS.
IN 1956, THEY DID BUILD GREEN

06:34:18.304,06:34:20.905
BUILDINGS –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: ON
THIS ONE, ON THIS ONE.

06:34:20.907,06:34:24.741
>> I KNOW BUT IT’S THE SAME
THING, WE HAVE TO CREATE AN
ILLUSION IT WILL BE A GREEN

06:34:24.743,06:34:27.969
BUILDING, IT WILL BE
DIFFERENT.
NO, IT’S NOT DIFFERENT.

06:34:27.971,06:34:33.873
IT’S THE SAME.
LIKE HERE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT.
WE GOT TO KEEP THAT WHOLE AREA

06:34:33.875,06:34:40.453
FOR THE FUTURE.
WE CAN’T BUILD A NEW LAKE AND
HOPE IT’S GOING TO STAY THERE.

06:34:40.455,06:34:49.117
NO, BECAUSE THE LOW SPOTS ARE
USUALLY WHAT THE DIVINE HAS
CREATED FOR OUR NEEDS.

06:34:49.119,06:34:52.781
BUT MANKIND IS DESTROYING IT
AND THEN THINK THEY’RE
SMARTER.

06:34:52.783,06:34:59.437
YOU SEE, IF WE NEED THE TREES,
WE NEED THE PONDS AND
EVERYTHING ELSE.

06:34:59.439,06:35:07.436
BUT LOOK AT ARIZONA.
THEY WERE SO DRY ALL THE TIME.
SINCE THEY BUILT MORE LAKES,

06:35:07.438,06:35:12.039
MORE EVERYTHING ELSE, IT’S
GOTTEN WETTER AND THEY GET
MORE RAIN NOW THAN THEY USED

06:35:12.041,06:35:18.122
TO BEFORE.
OTHERWISE — IT’S NOT FUNNY
BUT IT’S — ALDERMAN JONES,

06:35:18.124,06:35:21.162
IT’S NOT FUNNY BUT IT’S A
FACT.
I STUDY ALL THIS.

06:35:21.164,06:35:29.331
EUROPE IS KEEPING ALL THE
PONDS, ALL THE WETLANDS.
RUSSIA IS THE SAME THING.

06:35:29.333,06:35:34.195
BUT WHY ARE WE DESTROYING
HERE?
U.S. IS PARTLY DOING THE SAME

06:35:34.197,06:35:42.021
THING.
THE LAKES ARE DRYING UP, THE
PONDS ARE DRYING UP.

06:35:42.023,06:35:46.085
NOTHING HAS STOPPED RAPING THE
SOIL.
WE’RE GOING TO CREATE A

06:35:46.087,06:35:53.760
DESERT.
WE’RE ALL GOING TO CREATE A
DESERT JUST LIKE THE DESERT IS,

06:35:53.762,06:36:02.302
NOT IF WE KEEP OUR ENVIRONMENT
SAFE AND KEEP THE TREES, THE
LAKES AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

06:36:02.304,06:36:07.206
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANK
YOU, Mr. FAQ.
>> NO, BUT…

06:36:07.208,06:36:11.407
I’M ALWAYS WRAPPING UP, BUT
YOU GUYS DON’T WANT TO LISTEN
TOE MOVEMENT YOU DO WHATEVER

06:36:11.409,06:36:14.741
YOU WANT.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: ALL
RIGHT, Mr. FAQ, YOUR TIME IS

06:36:14.743,06:36:16.139
UP.
THANK YOU.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

06:36:16.141,06:36:28.698
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: ALL
RIGHT.
ALDERMAN HODGES.

06:36:28.700,06:36:32.162
>> YES, YOUR WORSHIP.
IN THIS CASE, HOWEVER, WE
DON’T HAVE A PLANNING

06:36:32.164,06:36:33.865
COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: WE DO
NOT.

06:36:33.867,06:36:39.302
>> SO I THOUGHT THAT HOPEFULLY
THE SIMPLEST MATTER IS TO GO
TO PAGE 7.

06:36:39.304,06:36:44.276
PAGE 7 YOU HAVE THE CORPORATE
PLANNING APPLICATIONS GROUP
RECOMMENDATION FOR APPROVAL.

06:36:44.278,06:36:51.058
A AND B.
HOWEVER, B WAS SHELLED AT THE
COMMISSION, TABLED AT THE

06:36:51.060,06:36:58.488
COMMISSION, SO WE DON’T — WE
CAN’T PERHAPS PROCEED WITH THE
OUTLINE PLAN ON THIS — NOW

06:36:58.490,06:37:02.257
POLICE FLOWAN MAY SAY
SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: SO WE

06:37:02.259,06:37:05.554
CAN ONLY DO A, NOT B.
>> YEAH.
AND YOUR WORSHIP, IT’S BEEN A

06:37:05.556,06:37:09.114
LONG DAY ALREADY.
I WOULD LIKE SOMEBODY TO MOVE
A, PLEASE.

06:37:09.116,06:37:13.823
AND I HAVE A –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: THANKS,
ALDERMAN LOWE.

06:37:13.825,06:37:18.030
>> I HAVE AN AMENDMENT THAT
I’D LIKE TO MOFFAT SECOND
READING.

06:37:18.032,06:37:21.373
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: OKAY.
SO ALDERMAN LOWE HAS MOVED IT.
DO I HAVE A SECONDER?

06:37:21.375,06:37:26.073
VERY WELL THEN.
SO IT IS ON THE FLOOR,
RECOMMENDATION A,

06:37:26.075,06:37:28.938
RECOMMENDATION THAT COUNCIL
ADOPT BY BYLAW THE
REDESIGNATION, ET CETERA, ET

06:37:28.940,06:37:33.940
CETERA.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, THIS I KNOW
ALDERMAN FARRELL LIKES THE

06:37:33.942,06:37:37.013
CONCEPT OF CONSERVATION
DESIGN.
WELL, WE TRIED IT A FEW YEARS

06:37:37.015,06:37:43.110
AGO AND IN MY VIEW, IT DID NOT
WORK VERY SATISFACTORILY.
EAR HERE WE HAVE AN

06:37:43.112,06:37:47.288
APPLICATION FROM A LAND OWNER
– HERE WE HAVE AN APPLICATION
FROM A LAND OWNER THAT WAS

06:37:47.290,06:37:51.991
HERE TODAY AND REPRESENTED BY
CONSULTANT WHO ARE PROVIDING
30% MUNICIPAL RESERVE ON THE

06:37:51.993,06:38:03.380
SITE, AND PRESERVING ALMOST
ALL OF THE WETLANDS IN THAT
SOUTH — SOUTHWEST CORNER OF

06:38:03.382,06:38:08.288
THE SITE, WHICH IS A FAR
BETTER PROPOSAL NOW THAN WHEN
THE APPLICATION WAS FIRST

06:38:08.290,06:38:15.123
MADE.
SO GIVEN THE PROGRESS MADE ON
THIS AND IT DOES I DO REMEMBER

06:38:15.125,06:38:21.787
TO THE AREA STRUCTURE –
CONFORM TO THE AREA STRUCTURE
PLAN, I’M PREPARED TO MOVE –

06:38:21.789,06:38:26.427
SORRY, I’M PREPARED TO SUPPORT
THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE CPEG
WHICH HAS ALREADY BEEN MOVED

06:38:26.429,06:38:28.759
BUT I HAVE AN AMENDMENT AT
SECOND READING.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: OKAY,

06:38:28.761,06:38:32.792
THANKS, ALDERMAN HODGES.
ALDERMAN FARRELL?
>> THANK YOU.

06:38:32.794,06:38:36.194
WELL I WON’T BE SUPPORTING IT,
AS I DIDN’T IN PLANNING
COMMISSION.

06:38:36.196,06:38:43.015
AND COUNCIL, WE HAVE AN
ESTABLISHED CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION POLICY.

06:38:43.017,06:38:49.998
AND FRANKLY, WE HAVEN’T EVEN
TRIED IT YET.
BECAUSE THERE IS A RECOGNITION

06:38:50.000,06:38:54.865
THAT LANDOWNERS NEED TO GET
VALUE OUT OF LAND.
AND YET WE ALSO ARE WANTING TO

06:38:54.867,06:39:00.132
PRESERVE SOME OF THESE REALLY
PRECIOUS ENVIRONMENTALLY
SENSITIVE AREAS.

06:39:00.134,06:39:05.365
SO HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
YOU CONCENTRATE THE DENSITY IN
THE AREAS THAT ARE DISTURBED.

06:39:05.367,06:39:13.111
AND WE STILL HAVE A MINDSET
WHERE YOU CARVE UPLAND IN
EQUAL LITTLE PARCELS AND THEN

06:39:13.113,06:39:21.979
WHATEVER IS LEFT YOU CAN
DESIGNATE ER.
BUT THAT’S NOT CONSERVATION

06:39:21.981,06:39:25.817
SUBDIVISION.
AND IT WORKS.
SO UNTIL THE DAY THAT WE ARE

06:39:25.819,06:39:30.085
WILLING TO TRY IT, I THINK
I’LL JUST CONTINUE TO GET UP
AND TALK ABOUT IT.

06:39:30.087,06:39:34.665
BUT I URGE MEMBERS OF COUNCIL
WHO AREN’T FAMILIAR WITH, IT
I’VE GOT A COUPLE OF REALLY

06:39:34.667,06:39:39.440
GREAT BOOKS IN MY OFFICE, TO
LOOK AT WHAT IT ACTUALLY MEANS
AND LOOKS LIKE.

06:39:39.442,06:39:43.236
BECAUSE IT’S QUITE SIMPLE TO
DO.
BUT IT IS RECOGNIZING THAT

06:39:43.238,06:39:50.045
LANDOWNERS NEED TO GET VALUE
FROM THEIR LAND WHILE
CONTRIBUTING TO THE

06:39:50.047,06:39:53.982
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH OF OUR
CITY.
AND I THINK IT’S — IT’S –

06:39:53.984,06:39:57.920
IT’S DISAPPOINTING IN THIS
CASE BECAUSE IF YOU SAW THE
LAND THAT WILL BE CARVED UP

06:39:57.922,06:40:02.685
INTO LITTLE EQUAL PARCELS,
IT’S REALLY EXQUISITE
PROPERTY.

06:40:02.687,06:40:06.620
SO I’M –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: SO,
ALDERMAN FARRELL.

06:40:06.622,06:40:09.787
>> YES.
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: I’VE
JUST BEEN CONSULTING WITH MY

06:40:09.789,06:40:13.004
COLLEAGUES UP HERE.
THERE’S A COUPLE WAYS FORWARD
HERE TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT

06:40:13.006,06:40:17.179
TO GO.
THE FIRST IS ONE COULD PUT
THIS FORTH AND IF IT’S PASSED,

06:40:17.181,06:40:22.048
THEN WE’RE DONE, AND IF IT’S
DEFEATED, THEN PRESUMABLY THE
LAND OWNER COULD THINK ABOUT

06:40:22.050,06:40:29.019
WHAT YOU’RE SUGGESTING.
IT IS POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO SEND
IT WITH A RECOMMENDATION BUT

06:40:29.021,06:40:32.186
IT HAS TO BE A VERY SPECIFIC
RECOMMENDATION ON WHAT YOU
WOULD LIKE DONE.

06:40:32.188,06:40:37.657
AND I’M JUST NOT SURE WHAT
YOUR INTENT IS.
>> TO REFER IT BACK TO

06:40:37.659,06:40:44.724
ADMINISTRATION TO — AND IT
WOULD HAVE TO BE VERY SPECIFIC
THAT TO BE REVIEWED IN CONTEXT

06:40:44.726,06:40:51.631
OF THE CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION POLICY, AND THAT
WOULD BE RECOGNIZING SOME

06:40:51.633,06:40:57.974
ADDITIONAL DENSITY ON THE SITE.
(INAUDIBLE).
>> NOW THAT THE PUBLIC HEARING

06:40:57.976,06:41:01.114
IS DONE –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: HAPPY
TO DO THAT TO SEE IF WE COULD

06:41:01.116,06:41:03.677
COME UP WITH A BETTER SOLUTION
OVER THE BREAK.
OKAY.

06:41:03.679,06:41:11.723
SO I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO THAT
THOUGH, MADAM CLERK?
SORRY?

06:41:11.725,06:41:22.241
(INAUDIBLE) OH, WE HAVE TO
FINISH THE ITEM.
YOU CAN’T RECONSIDER A RECESS.

06:41:22.243,06:41:29.685
BET YOU THAT IS BRAND NEW TO
MOST PEOPLE AROUND THIS TABLE.
I DIDN’T KNOW THAT.

06:41:29.687,06:41:32.682
>> SO –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: BUT WE
COULD TABLE THE ITEM UNTIL

06:41:32.684,06:41:45.685
LATER IN THE MEETING, COULDN’T
WE, MADAM CLERK?
>> THAT’S AN ELABORATE WAY OF

06:41:45.687,06:41:52.725
GETTING AROUND THAT.
DO YOU WANT ME TO TABLE?
ALL RIGHT.

06:41:52.727,06:41:57.397
BECAUSE I’M READY TO CHEW OFF
ALDERMAN HODGE’S ARM –
>> Mayor Naheed Nenshi: HE MAY

06:41:57.399,06:42:01.408
ENJOY THAT.
SO YOU’RE WILLING TO TABLE
THIS ITEM UNTIL LATER WHEN

06:42:01.410,06:42:03.814
COUNCIL RETURNS FROM ITS
DINNER BREAK?
WELL DONE, DO I HAVE A

06:42:03.816,06:42:07.152
SECONDER?
THANKS ALDERMAN STEVENSON, ARE
WE AGREED?

06:42:07.154,06:42:16.275
OPPOSED?
CARRIED.
SO WE WILL BE BACK — WHEN

06:42:16.277,06:42:21.573
WILL WE BE BACK?
JUST AN HOUR?
ALL RIGHT.

06:42:21.575,06:43:36.149
SO WE’LL BE BACK AT 10 MINUTES
TO 8.
>> AND WE ARE BACK.

06:43:36.151,06:43:42.251
ALDERMAN FARRELL, I THINK FROM
OVER DINNER I HEARD THAT YOU
ARE NOT GOING TO DO A REFERRAL

06:43:42.253,06:43:48.652
MOTION OR ARE YOU?
>> NO, I AM NOT.
AND IN DISCUSSION I WILL JUST

06:43:48.654,06:43:55.222
PREEMPT THE STRIKE HERE ANY
DISCUSSION WITH ALDERMAN
HODGES AND A FEW OF MY

06:43:55.224,06:43:59.988
COLLEAGUES.
DECIDED THERE ARE SOME LARGE
PARCELS IN ROCKY RIDGE THAT

06:43:59.990,06:44:07.933
ARE UNDEVELOPED.
AND WE LIKELY HAVE A BETTER
RESULT IF WE LOOKED AT THOSE

06:44:07.935,06:44:10.833
LARGE PARCELS.
AMOTION ARISING AFTER THIS
ONE.

06:44:10.835,06:44:16.267
I WOKEN BE SUPPORTING THIS
LAND USE BUT I’M NOT GOING TO
ATTEMPT TO REFER IT.

06:44:16.269,06:44:19.834
I DO HAVE A MOTION ARISING
THAT LOOKS AT THE BIGGER
PICTURE.

06:44:19.836,06:44:29.425
>> THANK YOU.
ALDERMAN CARRA?
>> I’M READY TO –

06:44:29.427,06:44:33.523
HAS IT BEEN MOVED YET?
YEAH.
I JUST WANT TO MAKE THE

06:44:33.525,06:44:39.698
STATEMENT PUBLICLY THAT THIS
IS –
THIS IS DEFINITELY 100%

06:44:39.700,06:44:45.001
NON-CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION.
THIS IS JUST A TRIANGULAR
PIECE OF SLAP WHICH STANDS FOR

06:44:45.003,06:44:52.117
SPACE LEFT AFTER PLANNING, AND
THAT’S UNFORTUNATELY HOW WE
DESIGN TOO MUCH SPACE IN

06:44:52.119,06:45:00.016
CALGARY AS WE TRY TO LOT IN
THE LOTS AND THEN WHAT IS LEFT
OVER BECOMES MR OR PARKLAND.

06:45:00.018,06:45:06.067
SO I THINK THE HORSE HAS LEFT
THE BARN ON THIS ONE.
IT BREAKS MY HEART THOUGH.

06:45:06.069,06:45:11.736
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CARRA.
ALDERMAN LOWE, YOU MOVED IT.
YOU ARE JUST GOING TO CLOSE.

06:45:11.738,06:45:17.308
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> ALDERMAN LOWE –
I HAVE AMENDMENT TO SECOND

06:45:17.310,06:45:22.412
READING.
>> SECOND READING, OKAY.
>> ALDERMAN CHABOT?

06:45:22.414,06:45:32.456
>> I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR
ADMINISTRATION.
Mr. ORR, I WAS LOOKING OVER

06:45:32.458,06:45:38.287
SOME OF THE MAPS AND I
COULDN’T TELL IF THERE WAS ANY
SPECIFIC WILDLIFE CORRIDORS

06:45:38.289,06:45:46.204
THAT LED INTO THAT AREA.
COULD YOU TELL ME WHETHER OR
NOT THERE ARE ANY CONTINUOUS

06:45:46.206,06:46:06.416
WILDLIFE CORRIDORS THAT LEAD
INTO THIS AREA?
OTHER THAN ROADS, I GUESS NOT.

06:46:06.418,06:46:11.920
>> NO, I DON’T BELIEVE SO,
YOUR WORSHIP.
THERE ARE SOME –

06:46:11.922,06:46:22.367
(Inaudible).
NOT A SPECIFIC WILDLIFE PER
SE.

06:46:22.369,06:46:28.372
>> OKAY.
THERE WAS SOME CONCERNS RAISED
BY ADJACENT RESIDENTS

06:46:28.374,06:46:37.403
SPECIFICALLY IN ACCORDANCE
WITH TO THE POTENTIAL
PROXIMITY TO THEIR RESIDENCE.

06:46:37.405,06:46:39.969
SETBACKS STILL ARE REQUIRED,
RIGHT?
>> YEAH.

06:46:39.971,06:46:45.303
ABSOLUTELY.
>> SIX METERS.
>> 7.5.

06:46:45.305,06:46:53.543
>> 7.5 METERS, OKAY.
>> THERE WOULD BE A MINIMUM
7.5 PLUS 7.5, 15 METER

06:46:53.545,06:46:57.044
SEPARATION MINIMUM?
>> YES, THAT’S CORRECT.
>> THAT’S ALL THE QUESTIONS I

06:46:57.046,06:47:05.225
HAD YOUR WORSHIP, THANK YOU.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN CHABOT.
I’M JUST DEBATING WHETHER I

06:47:05.227,06:47:11.342
WANT TO SAY ANYTHING, NO I
WILL GO TO ALDERMAN LOWE TO
CLOSE.

06:47:11.344,06:47:19.388
>>> YOUR WORSHIP, IT’S
INTERESTING BECAUSE THE DEBATE
REFLECTED THE DEBATE AT CBC,

06:47:19.390,06:47:25.119
WHAT HAPPENED AT CBC, OF
COURSE FOUR OF US ON ONE SIDE
AND FOUR OF THEM ON THE OTHER

06:47:25.121,06:47:33.160
SIDE.
OR YOU COULD TURN THAT AROUND.
IT’S WHOLLY MATERIAL.

06:47:33.162,06:47:40.068
I’M VERY PLEASED THAT ALDERMAN
FARRELL HAS ELECTED NOT TO TRY
TO CHANGE THIS ONE BECAUSE MY

06:47:40.070,06:47:46.497
ARGUMENT WAS GOING TO BE
EXACTLY THAT.
THAT THIS PIECE OF LAND –

06:47:46.499,06:47:51.370
THERE IS AN ECONOMIC REALITY
TO LAND.
AND IF WE ARE GOING TO DO THIS

06:47:51.372,06:47:57.847
KIND OF DEVELOPMENT, I THINK
YOU HAVE TO START AT A PIECE
OF LAND AND YOU HAVE TO

06:47:57.849,06:48:02.490
RECOGNIZE THAT AND YOU HAVE TO
ASSIGN IT A DENSITY THAT
ALLOWS YOU TO DO IT.

06:48:02.492,06:48:09.955
AND TO DO THAT YOU NEED A
PALLET IN WHICH TO WORK.
AND ON A PALLET HERE SIMPLY

06:48:09.957,06:48:17.931
ISN’T BIG ENOUGH AND IT HAS
ALREADY BEEN DISTURBED.
SO FOR THAT REASON, I STOOD UP

06:48:17.933,06:48:22.304
AND MOVED APPROVAL.
PLEASED TO MOVE APPROVAL AND
THREE READINGS OF THE

06:48:22.306,06:48:25.607
APPROPRIATE BYLAW.
>> THANKS, ALDERMAN LOWE.
ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE WE

06:48:25.609,06:48:36.686
AGREED?
OPPOSED?
CALL THE ROLL, PLEASE.

06:48:36.688,06:48:42.600
>> ALDERMAN POOTMANS?
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN STEVENSON?

06:48:42.602,06:48:46.667
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN CARRA?
>> NO.

06:48:46.669,06:48:52.272
>> ALDERMAN CHABOT?
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN COLLEY-URQUHART?

06:48:52.274,06:48:54.838
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN DEMONG?
>> YES.

06:48:54.840,06:48:58.744
>> ALDERMAN FARRELL?
ALDERMAN HODGES?
>> YES.

06:48:58.746,06:49:01.783
>> ALDERMAN JONES?
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN KEATING?

06:49:01.785,06:49:06.088
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN LOWE?
>> YES.

06:49:06.090,06:49:08.516
>> ALDERMAN MacLEOD?
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN MAR.

06:49:08.518,06:49:10.983
>> YES.
>> ALDERMAN PINCOTT?
>> NO.

06:49:10.985,06:49:14.220
>> MAYOR NENSHI.
>> YES.
>> CARRIED YOUR WORSHIP.

06:49:14.222,06:49:17.257
>> THANK YOU.
I BELIEVE THAT WE’LL DO THE
THREE READINGS OF THE BYLAW

06:49:17.259,06:49:21.430
AND YOUR MOTION ARISING
ALDERMAN FARRELL.
FIRST READING ARE WE AGREED.

06:49:21.432,06:49:27.559
OPPOSED?
SAME DIVISION.
ARE WE AGREED.

06:49:27.561,06:49:30.321
OKAY.
BEFORE WE GET TO SECOND
READING ALDERMAN HODGES?

06:49:30.323,06:49:34.894
>> YES.
YOUR WORSHIP, THIS IS AN ISSUE
THAT I BROUGHT THE ATTENTION

06:49:34.896,06:49:38.959
TO THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT AND
ASKED THEM TO DO A PROPOSED
AMENDMENT AT SECOND READING

06:49:38.961,06:49:45.136
AND THAT SIMPLY TO MATCH THE
LAND USE ON THE DEVELOPMENT
PARCEL THAT’S LAND USE IS

06:49:45.138,06:49:53.105
IMMEDIATELY TO THE SOUTH AND
EAST OF THIS SITE, ON THE
DECKER LANDS.

06:49:53.107,06:50:00.010
AND MADAM CLERK HAS A COPY OF
WHAT WE WANT TO INTRODUCE AS
THE NEW SCHEDULE, AND THE NEW

06:50:00.012,06:50:07.818
SCHEDULE B IS STILL 21 SINGLE
FAMILY LOTS OR DEPENDING ON
THE LAND SWAPS, LAND PURCHASE

06:50:07.820,06:50:12.486
OR SWAPS IT MAY NEED TO OCCUR.
BUT IT’S STILL THE SAME BASIC
PLAN.

06:50:12.488,06:50:24.795
BUT MY RATIONAL IS IT’S THE
SAME LAND USE AS 94-D-2010,
94-D-2010, SITE THREE, 5 AND

06:50:24.797,06:50:27.370
1.
IT’S A MATCH FOR THE EAST AND
THE SOUTH SIDE.

06:50:27.372,06:50:39.206
THANK YOU.
>> DO A SECONDER FOR THAT
AMENDMENT?

06:50:39.208,06:50:46.051
THANKS ALDERMAN KEATING.
ANY DISCUSSION.
ALDERMAN LOWE?

06:50:46.053,06:50:58.573
>> I DON’T KNOW IF ANYBODY CAN
TELL ME WHAT THE LAND USE IS
ON THESE DC SITES.

06:50:58.575,06:51:14.054
I DON’T HAVE MY REFERENCE
MATERIAL HERE.
94-D, 2010 SITE 1.

06:51:14.056,06:51:19.597
>> LAND USE IS INDEED VERY
CONSISTENT WITH WHAT IS BEING
BROUGHT FORWARD YOUR WORSHIP.

06:51:19.599,06:51:25.978
THE DIFFERENCE FROM THIS
STANDARD DISTRICT IS THE
SINGLE ATTACHED DWELLING HAS

06:51:25.980,06:51:32.355
BEEN REMOVED AS PERMITTED USE
AND THEREFORE ANYTHING WOULD
BE DISCRETIONARY USE.

06:51:32.357,06:51:39.660
THERE IS GENERAL COMMENTS IN
THE DC FOR SENSITIVE
DEVELOPMENT IN THE PURPOSE

06:51:39.662,06:53:06.474
STATEMENT.
(PLEASE STAND BY)
THERE IS LAND WORK

06:53:06.476,06:53:10.638
ESTABLISHED.
ALL I WANT TO BE TO DO IS BE
CONSISTENT WITH THE PROCESS OF

06:53:10.640,06:53:16.636
APPROVAL THAT WE HAVE GOING.
>> STILL, Mr. WATSON, WOULD
YOU MIND?

06:53:16.638,06:53:20.909
>> TO THE CHAIR ALDERMAN
HODGES IS RIGHT.
ALL THEY ARE DOING IS PUT ON

06:53:20.911,06:53:25.877
THIS LAND THE SAME LAND USE
THAT SITS ON THE ADJOINING
PARCELS.

06:53:25.879,06:53:32.077
AND AS ALDERMAN LOWE ASKS,
REALLY WHAT IT DOES IS REQUIRE
DEVELOPMENT PERMITS FOR ALL

06:53:32.079,06:53:36.115
THE HOUSES.
>> INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT
PERMITS FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL

06:53:36.117,06:53:38.713
LOT?
>> THAT’S RIGHT.
PLUS A DEVELOP IN PERMIT IN

06:53:38.715,06:53:42.952
ORDER BEFORE THE STRIPPING AND
GRADING STARTS.
TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE’S SOME

06:53:42.954,06:53:49.663
DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW THAT IS
GOING TO TAKE PLACE.
>> DOES THAT NOT NORMALLY TAKE

06:53:49.665,06:53:53.366
PLACE ANYWAY?
REGARDS TO DRAINAGE?
>> WELL, THERE’S CERTAINLY

06:53:53.368,06:53:56.437
SOME MATERIAL WE HAVE TO LOOK
AT BEFORE WE PERMIT STRIPPING
AND GRADING.

06:53:56.439,06:54:05.912
BUT THIS WILL BE A FULLER
EVALUATION THAN NORMAL.
>> SO IF YOU’RE REQUIRED TO

06:54:05.914,06:54:09.316
COME FORWARD WITH AN
INDIVIDUAL PERMIT FOR A LOT,
HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT YOU

06:54:09.318,06:54:18.112
HAVE A CONTINUOUS LAND?
>> IT’S UP TO THE APPLICANT OF
COURSE, BUT THEY’D PROBABLY

06:54:18.114,06:54:22.191
COME IN– NOT ONE AT A TIME.
THEY’LL BRING IN SIX AT A TIME
OR SOMETHING.

06:54:22.193,06:54:26.267
SO WE’LL BE ABLE TO SEE HOW
STREET FRONTAGE OR HOW IT
MIGHT WORK.

06:54:26.269,06:54:31.075
OF COURSE AS INDIVIDUAL
APPLICATIONS THEY ARE SUBJECT
TO APPEAL.

06:54:31.077,06:54:37.408
>> SO IF WE ARE TO NOT APPROVE
THIS, THEN HOW WOULD THIS
DEVELOPMENT GO FORTH?

06:54:37.410,06:54:41.582
>> IF THIS WAS NOT APPROVED
AND THE LAND YOU SET WAS
PROPOSED WAS APPROVED THEN

06:54:41.584,06:54:50.565
THAT WOULD BE SUBJECT TO
BUILDING PERMITS.
>> THEY’D STILL BE SUBJECT TO

06:54:50.567,06:54:54.831
THE SAME REQUIREMENTS IN
REGARDS TO LAND USE?
>> OH YEAH, ALL THE

06:54:54.833,06:54:58.400
SUBDIVISION TECHNICAL
REQUIREMENTS PEOPLE SEND.
>> THANKS FOR THAT

06:54:58.402,06:55:05.710
CLARIFICATION.
>> ALL RIGHT, ANYWHERE ELSE ON
THE AMENDMENT?

06:55:05.712,06:55:09.450
DID YOU WANT TO CLOSE ALDERMAN
HODGES?
>> YES, WHAT HAPPENED IN OTHER

06:55:09.452,06:55:13.687
DISTRICTS IN THE NORTHWEST
THAT I’M FAMILIAR WITH IS A
COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT

06:55:13.689,06:55:20.510
PERMIT THAT IDENTIFIES THE
SKAP IN THE LAY-OUT OF THE
INDIVIDUAL DWELLING UNITS ALL

06:55:20.512,06:55:27.825
LINED UP OF COURSE HERE ON
EACH SIDE OF THE NEW ROAD.
AND IT’S PRETTY STRAIGHT

06:55:27.827,06:55:30.796
FORWARD.
AND IT PROVIDES FOR AS I SAID
IN THE FRONT PAGE HERE PROVIDE

06:55:30.798,06:55:38.468
FOR CON TECH CHURLLY–
CONTEXTURALLY SENTIVELY
DEVELOPED.

06:55:38.470,06:55:45.614
>> THANK YOU, ON THE AMENDMENT
THEN, ARE WE AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

06:55:45.616,06:55:54.531
THAT’S IT.
ALL RIGHT.
ANY OPPOSED?

06:55:54.533,06:56:01.740
ALDERMAN CHABOT AND I ARE
OPPOSED.
SECOND READING OF THE BYLAW

06:56:01.742,06:56:05.038
THEN ARE WE AGREED?
OPPOSED?
SAME DIVISION?

06:56:05.040,06:56:09.733
AGREED, ALL RIGHT,
AUTHORIZATION, AWAITING FOR
BYLE THE LAW ARE WE AGREED?

06:56:09.735,06:56:14.711
ANY OPPOSED?
THIRD READING, AGREEED IN ANY
OPPOSED?

06:56:14.713,06:56:17.717
CARRIED.
ALL RIGHT.
SAME DIVISION, THANK YOU.

06:56:17.719,06:56:27.933
I THOUGHT I SAID THAT ALREADY.
YEAH, OKAY.
>> THANK YOU.

06:56:27.935,06:56:40.304
SO IN DISCUSSION OVER THE
SUPPER BREAK, MY MOTION
ARISING IS AS FOLLOWS.

06:56:40.306,06:56:44.612
THERE WE GO.
DIRECTED MIN STRAGS TO ENGAGE
A THIRD PARTY TO ILLUSTRATE

06:56:44.614,06:56:48.317
HOW THE PRINCIPALS OF
CONSERVATION DESIGN COULD BE
APPLIED TO THE REMAINING LARGE

06:56:48.319,06:56:53.192
PARCEL IN THE NORTHEAST
QUARTERSECTION IN ROCKY RIDGE
AND REPORT THROUGH TO COUNCIL,

06:56:53.194,06:56:59.896
OR THROUGH CPC TO COUNCIL NO
LATER THAN OCTOBER 2nd.
AND SO WHAT WE’LL DO WITH THIS

06:56:59.898,06:57:05.174
PROCESS, IF IT’S APPROVED OR
SUPPORTED BY COUNCIL, IS LOOK
AT SOMETHING THAT HAS MORE

06:57:05.176,06:57:11.915
MEANING THAN JUST TAKING THE
RESIDUAL ORPHAN SITES, AND
TRYING TO RETROFIT A DIFFERENT

06:57:11.917,06:57:16.216
POLICY.
WE DO HAVE THE CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION GUIDELINES, BUT

06:57:16.218,06:57:23.153
THIS WOULD HELP BRING A THIRD
PARTY TO HELP US WITH IT.
SINCE WE HAVEN’T SUCCESSFULLY

06:57:23.155,06:57:29.466
APPLIED THEM IN CALGARY.
KONSER VAEGS SUBDIVISION OR
CONSERVATION DESIGN?

06:57:29.468,06:57:34.334
DOES IT MATTER?
>> SUBDIVISION DESIGN.
>> OKAY.

06:57:34.336,06:57:39.605
SO CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION.
>> DESIGN.
>> CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION

06:57:39.607,06:57:42.014
DESIGN.
>> YEAH.
SUBDIVISION DESIGN.

06:57:42.016,06:57:48.726
>> OKAY.
>> I THINK REPORT BACK WITH
THE ILLUSTRATION OF HOW THE

06:57:48.728,06:57:51.852
PRINCIPALS WOULD WORK?
AND THEN IT’S REALLY COUNCIL’S
DECISION.

06:57:51.854,06:57:55.995
>> AND I THINK YOU YOU WANT
OCTOBER 3rd.
THAT’S OUR COUNCIL MEETING.

06:57:55.997,06:58:02.139
>> IS IT?
ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.
>> OKAY, DO I HAVE A SECONDER

06:58:02.141,06:58:10.575
FOR THAT ONE?
>> THANKS DO I NEED A
DISCUSSION ON THIS?

06:58:10.577,06:58:13.720
ALDERMAN CARRA.
LOWE?
>> I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING UP

06:58:13.722,06:58:19.233
TO THE END OF THE WORD ROCKY
RIDGE.
I’M HAVING DIFFICULTY

06:58:19.235,06:58:22.967
UNDERSTANDING REPORT THROUGH
CALGARY PLANNING COMMISSION TO
COUNCIL NOT LATER THAN– WHAT

06:58:22.969,06:58:27.995
ARE WE GOING TO REPORT?
WE HAVE THE SUBDIVISION, THE
CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION

06:58:27.997,06:58:39.116
DIVINE POLICY IN PLACE.
WE’VE TAKEN OUT– YOU KNOW, I
DON’T KNOW WHO THE THIRD

06:58:39.118,06:58:46.057
PARTY’S GOING TO TALK TO.
WE HAVE A POLICY IN PLACE.
BUT WHO IS IT GOING TO BE

06:58:46.059,06:58:50.689
SHOWN TO?
WE HAVE THE POLICY IN PLACE,
AND WHAT ARE WE GOING TO TAKE

06:58:50.691,06:58:57.260
IN THE PLANNING COMMISSION
THROUGH THE COUNCIL?
UM– IF IT WERE TO ENGAGE A

06:58:57.262,06:59:02.669
THIRD PARTY TO ILLUSTRATE HOW
THE PRINCIPALS WORK TO
POSSIBLE DEVELOPERS UP THERE.

06:59:02.671,06:59:11.374
I COULD UNDERSTAND THAT.
BUT I’M NOT SURE WHO WE’RE
TELLING THIS TO, WHAT WE’RE

06:59:11.376,06:59:15.209
BRINGING THROUGH PLANNING
COMMISSION, WHAT WE’RE GOING
TO TELL PLANNING COMMISSIONER

06:59:15.211,06:59:18.212
TO TELL COUNCIL.
AND I KNOW EVERYBODY’S
POINTING AT Mr. WATTS LIKE HE

06:59:18.214,06:59:21.414
CAN ANSWER THE QUESTION.
>> HE’S POINTING AT HIMSELF
LIKE HE CAN ANSWER THE

06:59:21.416,06:59:32.137
QUESTION.
SO Mr. WATSON?
>> THANK YOU YOUR WORSHIP.

06:59:32.139,06:59:35.484
THE REASON WE THOUGHT THIS
MIGHT BE THE APPROPRIATE WAY
TO GO IS THAT YOU ARE

06:59:35.486,06:59:39.717
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
IN FACT WE DID CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION DESIGN

06:59:39.719,06:59:43.351
SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS AREA.
WE’VE TRIED IT A COUPLE OF
TIMES.

06:59:43.353,06:59:50.086
AND PERHAPS NOT ALL THAT–
CERTAINLY NOT SUCCESSFULLY.
SO LOOKING AT THE LARGER AREAS

06:59:50.088,06:59:55.917
THAT REMAIN IN THE NORTHEAST
QUARTERSECTION WHAT WE WOULD
LIKE TO DO IS HIRE AN

06:59:55.919,07:00:00.020
INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTY TO GO
IN AND– WHO HAS SOME
EXPERTISE, BECAUSE ALTHOUGH WE

07:00:00.022,07:00:06.935
HAVE POLICIES, WE DO NOT HAVE
A LOT OF DEEP KNOWLEDGE ON HOW
TO DO THIS INTERNALLY.

07:00:06.937,07:00:11.771
TO LOOK AT THE REMAINING LAND
AND COME BACK AND REPORT
THROUGH PLANNING COMMISSION,

07:00:11.773,07:00:15.498
OR PLANNING COMMISSION’S
ADVICE.
AND THOUGHTS ON THIS.

07:00:15.500,07:00:20.609
AND BRING INTO COUNCIL, AND
FRANKLY, I SUSPECT, ALTHOUGH
WE ARE A LONG WAYS FROM THE

07:00:20.611,07:00:24.018
RECOMMENDATIONS IT WOULD BE
SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT
COUNCIL INSTRUCTS THAT ON

07:00:24.020,07:00:33.927
THESE AREAS THIS FOR SURE WILL
BE CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION.
AND THEN THAT WOULD GO BACK TO

07:00:33.929,07:00:38.869
THE LANDOWNERS AND THEY WOULD
MAKE APPLICATIONS BASED ON
POLICIES IDEAL PRINCIPALS.

07:00:38.871,07:00:44.204
BECAUSE UIL COUNCIL ACTUALLY
SAYS AHEAD OF TIME TO DO
CONSERVATION, SUBDIVISION

07:00:44.206,07:00:52.548
DESIGN, WE’RE GOING TO BE
COMING IN WITH THESE SMALL
PIECES OF LAND, AND EACH ONE

07:00:52.550,07:01:06.402
OF THEM ON THEIR OWN.
>> WOULD WE NOT BE BETTER TO
DIRECT THAT THE REMAINING

07:01:06.404,07:01:15.608
UNDEVELOPED LAND IN ROCKY
RIDGE SHALL BE SUBJECT TO
CONSERVATION DESIGN?

07:01:15.610,07:01:20.785
AND THEN FRONT-END LOADED
RATHER THAN LOADING IT AT THE
BACK END?

07:01:20.787,07:01:28.154
I’M JUST– I’M STILL UNCLEAR,
I MEAN, I’M NOT DISPUTING THE
THREAT, AT ALL.

07:01:28.156,07:01:33.963
BUT I WANT AN OUTCOME.
AND I THINK HERE’S AN
OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO THE

07:01:33.965,07:01:38.188
COMMUNITY, GO TO THE
LANDOWNERS AND SAY HERE’S WHAT
SHALL HAPPEN.

07:01:38.190,07:01:45.064
AND HERE’S OUR THIRD PARTY
EXPERT WITH EXAMPLES.
>> TO THE CHAIR THAT WOULD

07:01:45.066,07:01:49.263
CERTAINLY SAVE US A LOT OF
TIME AND EFFORT.
HOWEVER, THERE ARE GOING TO

07:01:49.265,07:01:53.894
HAVE TO BE AMENDMENTS TO THE
ASP IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS
WORK.

07:01:53.896,07:01:57.901
WHERE WE’VE TRIED AS I SAID
CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION
DESIGN IN THIS AREA, THERE HAS

07:01:57.903,07:02:04.639
BEEN CONSIDERABLE PUSH BACK BY
THE COMMUNITY.
EVEN WHEN WE HAD A WILLING

07:02:04.641,07:02:09.208
APPLICANT.
SO THIS IS SORT OF EASING INTO
THIS AS OPPOSED TO SAYING IT

07:02:09.210,07:02:12.976
SHALL BE.
NOW IF COUNCIL WANTS TO SAY IT
SHALL BE, THAT’LL MAKE IT A

07:02:12.978,07:02:17.778
LITTLE BIT EASIER WHEN WE TALK
TO PEOPLE.
BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, PEOPLE

07:02:17.780,07:02:26.154
AND THEY ARE HERE TONIGHT A
WHOLE LOT OF OTHER STAKE
HOLDERS IN THIS THAT WE SHOULD

07:02:26.156,07:02:28.491
TALK TO FIRST.
>> AND I GUESS THAT’S THE
DIFFICULTY.

07:02:28.493,07:02:32.024
THERE’S A LOT OF STAKE HOLDERS
HERE.
AND I THINK WHEN YOU GO TO

07:02:32.026,07:02:38.766
SOME OF THE STAKE HOLDERS OUT
HERE AND SAY YOU’RE GOING TO
HAVE VERY HIGH DENSITY, OR

07:02:38.768,07:02:44.070
RELATIVELY HIGH DENSITY IN
SMALL POCKETS OF LAND AROUND
YOU RATHER THAN YOUR $1.1

07:02:44.072,07:02:51.112
MILLION HOUSES, YOU’RE GOING
TO GET SOME PUSHBACK.
SO I GUESS IT DEPENDS WHERE

07:02:51.114,07:02:57.886
YOU WANT TO LOAD THIS ON.
I’M HAVING TROUBLE WITH THIS
CANDIDLY BECAUSE I’M NOT SURE

07:02:57.888,07:03:01.754
WHAT THE OUTCOME IS.
I’M NOT EVEN SURE WHAT THE
INPUT IS.

07:03:01.756,07:03:14.376
AND I’M MOST CERTAINLY NOT
SURE WHAT THE OUTPUT IS.
>> Mr. WATSON AND ALDERMAN

07:03:14.378,07:03:21.721
CHABOT?
>> THANK YOU, WORSHIP.
I TO TOO HAVE A BIT OF A

07:03:21.723,07:03:24.555
PROBLEM WITH WHAT’S BEEN
PROPOSED.
IF THIS IS INTENDED TO LEAD TO

07:03:24.557,07:03:29.993
A CITY I INITIATED
REDESIGNATION WHICH WOULD THEN
BE PASSED ONTO THE DEVELOPERS

07:03:29.995,07:03:34.912
TO SUGGEST WHAT THEY COULD OR
COULD NOT DEVELOP, I’M JUST
TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE

07:03:34.914,07:03:38.950
OUTCOME.
WHAT THE DELIVERABLE’S GOING
TO BE HERE.

07:03:38.952,07:03:45.623
>> I’M SURE MS. ASHWORTHY
WOULD DO A BETTER JOB
EXPLAINING THIS.

07:03:45.625,07:03:50.662
>> HOPEFULLY I WON’T ADD
CONFUSION.
I THINK WHAT WE ARE SUGGESTING

07:03:50.664,07:03:54.636
HERE IS WE’D LIKE THE
OPPORTUNITY TO BRING SOMEONE
IN WHO CAN HELP US BETTER

07:03:54.638,07:03:59.408
UNDERSTAND WHAT CONSERVATION
SUBDIVISION DESIGN COULD MEAN
FOR THE EFFECT FOR THE

07:03:59.410,07:04:05.051
REMAINING PARCELS.
AND FRANKLY, BRING THAT TO
COUNCIL SO THAT COUNCIL ALSO

07:04:05.053,07:04:09.627
UNDERSTANDS, BECAUSE I’M NOT
SURE THAT EVERYONE’S ON THE
SAME PAGE IN THEIR

07:04:09.629,07:04:12.425
UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT
CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION
DESIGN MEAN.

07:04:12.427,07:04:20.421
WE TAKE THESE FOUR AREAS.
GET SOME OPTIONS IDENTIFIED ON
THEM SO THAT WE CAN COME BACK

07:04:20.423,07:04:25.929
THROUGH PLANNING COMMISSION.
SHARE THAT KNOWLEDGE, AND ALSO
COME BACK TO COUNCIL AND SAY,

07:04:25.931,07:04:29.438
YOU KNOW, HERE’S WHAT IT MIGHT
LOOK LIKE.
HERE’S WHAT WE’VE BEEN TALKING

07:04:29.440,07:04:35.212
ABOUT, AND PERHAPS THE POLICY
HAS NOT BEEN A SUCCESSFUL IF
IDENTIFYING HOW IT CAN WORK ON

07:04:35.214,07:04:43.715
THE GROUND IN SOME OF THESE
AREA PS SO WE WOULD BE LOOKING
TO BRING THOSE OPTIONS BACK SO

07:04:43.717,07:04:50.612
THAT COUNCIL CAN UNDERSTAND
MORE CLEARLY WHAT THE
DIRECTION WOULD BE SHOULD THEY

07:04:50.614,07:04:58.751
CHOOSE TO EMBRACE IT.
>> DOES THIS ALSO INCLUDE A
DETAILED ANALYSIS IN

07:04:58.753,07:05:03.479
PARTICULAR AREAS, ALL OF THAT?
>> THAT WOULD BE PART OF THE
DECISIONS FOR THE FOUR

07:05:03.481,07:05:08.025
INDIVIDUAL SITES.
>> AND IDENTIFYING WHICH AREAS
COULD POTENTIALLY DEVELOP THE

07:05:08.027,07:05:15.566
TOTAL AMOUNT OF LANDS?
AND THEN TRY AND WORK OUT THE
DENSITY AS ACCORDING?

07:05:15.568,07:05:19.800
>> WE WOULD BE TRYING TO ILL
STRAET HOW THE PRINCIPALS OF
CLUSTERING THE DENSITY COULD

07:05:19.802,07:05:26.145
WORK ON PARCELS, AND AREAS
THAT WOULD HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL
FOR RETENTION.

07:05:26.147,07:05:30.943
I’M NOT SURE WE’D GET DOWN TO
THE DETAIL THAT YOU WOULD FOR
LAND USE AMENDMENT.

07:05:30.945,07:05:36.252
IT WOULD BE MORE ILLUSTRATIVE,
BUT JUST TO ADD TO EVERYONE’S
UNDERSTANDING, INCLUDING THE

07:05:36.254,07:05:42.695
LANDOWNERS AND THE COMMUNITY
ET CETERA, OF WHAT THIS MIGHT
LOOK LIKE.

07:05:42.697,07:05:49.673
BECAUSE I’M NOT SURE WE HAVE
SOME LIVING , BREATHING
EXAMPLES OF WHAT PEOPLE CAN

07:05:49.675,07:05:55.632
EASILY RELATE TO.
THERE ARE FOUR SIGHTS.
ALDERMAN HODGES PROBABLY KNOWS

07:05:55.634,07:06:04.282
MORE THAN I DO ON THE SIZE OF
THEM.
>> TRYING TO GET AN ORDER OF

07:06:04.284,07:06:08.021
MAGNITUDE AND TOTAL SCOPE OF
THE PROJECT.
AND THE REASON THAT I’M ASKING

07:06:08.023,07:06:14.259
THAT IS I’M JUST WONDERING HOW
MUCH WORK ARE WE TALKING ABOUT
HERE?

07:06:14.261,07:06:17.231
>> I DON’T THINK IT’S A HUGE
AMOUNT OF WORK.
SOMETHING WE COULD EASILY PUT

07:06:17.233,07:06:20.598
OUT WOULD YOU TELL HAVING TO
GO TO REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL.
>> OKAY, AND SOMETHING YOU

07:06:20.600,07:06:25.397
THINK YOU CAN ACCOMMODATE
WITHIN YOUR CURRENT WORK PLAN?
>> WELL WE’D BE USING A

07:06:25.399,07:06:29.166
CONSULTANT PRIMARILY, YEAH.
>> OH, OUTSIDE OF YOUR CURRENT
WORK PLAN?

07:06:29.168,07:06:32.942
>> OUTSIDE OF CURRENT WORK
PLAN.
BUT WE ALWAYS ALLOW SOME

07:06:32.944,07:06:40.083
MANEUVERING ROOM SO THAT WE
CAN MEET COUNCIL’S NEEDS.
>> I HEARD THAT.

07:06:40.085,07:06:42.816
DID YOU HEAR THAT?
ROOM IN THE BUDGET.
>> THERE’S A LIMIT TO THAT

07:06:42.818,07:06:45.625
ROOM, HOWEVER.
>> THANK YOU.
>> IT’S ONLY MARCH, I MIGHT

07:06:45.627,07:06:53.512
ADD.
NO, IT’S APRIL, SORRY.
>> I WON’T SAY IT.

07:06:53.514,07:06:56.446
ALL RIGHT THEN.
ON THE MOTION RISING ALDERMAN
HODGES?

07:06:56.448,07:07:07.912
>> YES.
>> YOUR WORSHIP, TO MAKE LIFE
A LITTLE SIMPLER FOR THE POOR

07:07:07.914,07:07:12.383
CONSULTANT PERSON YOU ARE
GOING TO HIRE WHOEVER HE OR
SHE MAY BE, WHY WOULDN’T THE

07:07:12.385,07:07:17.759
DEPARTMENT PROVIDE SUMMARY OF
THE ISSUES?
AND THEN THEY HAVE A BASE

07:07:17.761,07:07:21.732
UNDERSTANDING OF KNOWLEDGE TO
BEGIN WITH.
RATHER THAN GO OUT AND

07:07:21.734,07:07:30.780
DISCOVER THE HARD WAY.
>> TO THE CHAIR WE’D BE MORE
THAN HAPPY WE’D WANT TO MAKE

07:07:30.782,07:07:34.313
SURE THE CONSULTEN KNEW WHAT
HE OR SHE WAS GETTING INTO
BEFOREHAND.

07:07:34.315,07:07:39.791
>> YES, AND THE 25 ACRES I
MENTIONED IS IN ACCUMULATION
OF THE DECKER HOLDINGS.

07:07:39.793,07:07:44.461
NONE OF WHICH ARE MORE THAN
ABOUT FIVE OR SIX ACRES.
BUT IN CUMULATIVE TOTAL,

07:07:44.463,07:07:52.894
WHEREAS THEY SAY NOW THE
SHOVEL FULL OF EARTH IS MOVED
FOR YEARS, AN AREA THAT I’M

07:07:52.896,07:07:56.057
SURE THEY WOULD WANT TO LOOK
AT.
LOOKING AT SMALLER PARCELS

07:07:56.059,07:08:08.577
TOGETHER HE HAS ABOUT 25 OR 30
ACRES THERE.
>> THANKS ALDERMAN HODGES.

07:08:08.579,07:08:11.248
>> THANK YOU.
I THINK THEY EXPLAINED IT VERY
WELL.

07:08:11.250,07:08:17.543
THIS IS REALLY TO SHOW THE
ADMINISTRATION AND MEMBERS OF
COUNCIL WHAT WE ACTUALLY MEAN

07:08:17.545,07:08:24.219
WITH CONSERVATION SUBDIVISION.
BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T DONE ET
SUCCESSFULLY IN THE CITY OF

07:08:24.221,07:08:30.417
CALGARY FOR A A VARIETY OF
REASONS.
PARTLY FRACTURED OWNERSHIP.

07:08:30.419,07:08:36.656
WILLINGNESS TO LOOK AT
SOMETHING NEW.
WE HAVEN’T DEVELOPED SOME

07:08:36.658,07:08:43.158
EXPERTISE IN THE AREA.
SO IT’S REALLY TO DEMONSTRATE
TO COUNCIL.

07:08:43.160,07:08:47.193
MAYBE SOME LANDOWNERS IN THE
COMMUNITY WHAT THE BENEFITS OF
THIS DIFFERENT TYPE OF LAND

07:08:47.195,07:08:55.470
FORM.
SO I THINK WORTH THE EXERCISE
IF WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO

07:08:55.472,07:09:01.819
TALK ABOUT IT.
WELL USED IN OTHER CITIES.
NOT EXPERIMENTAL AT ALL.

07:09:01.821,07:09:04.182
BUT ALSO EXPERIMENT UNTIL
CALGARY.
WHENEVER WE ARE TRYING

07:09:04.184,07:09:10.321
SOMETHING NEW, AND IT COULD
FIT WITHIN THE INNOVATION FUND
AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED.

07:09:10.323,07:09:13.630
WHEN WE’RE TRYING SOMETHING
NEW, IT’S WORTH GOING SLOWLY
SO WE CAN BRING PEOPLE ALONG

07:09:13.632,07:09:19.267
WITH US.
THAT’S WHY THIS SOFTER
APPROACH THAT’S WHAT ALDERMAN

07:09:19.269,07:09:30.550
LOW HAD SUGGESTED.
>> THANKS, ARE WE AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

07:09:30.552,07:09:36.082
ALDERMAN DEMONG IS OPPOSED.
>> OKAY.
GOT IT TO A PUBLIC HEARING.

07:09:36.084,07:09:39.784
ALL RIGHT.
PLAYING SOME MUSICAL CHAIRS UP
HERE.

07:09:39.786,07:09:52.367
AND WE WILL MOVE THEN TO
REPORTS FROM THE CITY MANAGER
STARTING WITH C-2011 32.

07:09:52.369,07:09:55.865
WHILE WE ARE WAITING FOR THESE
FOLKS TO GET UP HERE, CAN I
HAVE SOMEONE MOVE THIS ONE

07:09:55.867,07:10:03.719
PLEASE?
DO I HAVE A SECONDER?
THANKS ALDERMAN LOW.

07:10:03.721,07:10:17.331
THIS ONE IS GOING ON THE
ARCHIVE LEGISLATIVE VIDEO.
I DON’T KNOW WHETHER OR NOT

07:10:17.333,07:10:24.942
THIS IS OVER, BUT I NOTICED IN
THE PROPOSED POLICY, IT TALKS
ABOUT DELETING THE ARCHIVES

07:10:24.944,07:10:35.065
AFTER THREE YEARS.
COST IS SO CHEAP THESE DAYS.
I WONDER IF WE WANT TO KEEP

07:10:35.067,07:10:40.744
THEM FOR ARCHIVE FOREVER.
OH GOD IT’S SO CHEAP.
TRIED TO BUY A HARD DRIVE

07:10:40.746,07:10:43.176
LATELY?
I DON’T KNOW WHY WE WOULDN’T
KEEP THEM FOREVER.

07:10:43.178,07:10:46.519
>> IT’S CURRENTLY THE POLICY
FOR THE CITY OF CALGARY TO
HAVE A RETENTION SCHEDULE FOR

07:10:46.521,07:10:52.594
ALL DOCUMENTS AND DATA.
SO WE DO WANT TO CONTROL NO
MATTER WHAT FORMAT INFORMATION

07:10:52.596,07:11:00.816
IS STORED IN.
A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME AFTER
ALL THESE WERE DISPOSED OF.

07:11:00.818,07:11:13.066
SIMPLE HOUSEKEEPING.
>> THERE WAS A NUMBER IN HERE
FOR THE COST OF ARCHIVING OR

07:11:13.068,07:11:22.872
STORAGE, I GUESS IS ANOTHER
TERM.
HOW WAS THAT NUMBER DERIVED?

07:11:22.874,07:11:31.873
>> EXTENSIONS REACHED BY THE
CITY CLERK, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> MADAM CLERK, EXTENSIVE?

07:11:31.875,07:11:37.842
>> WELL, WHY NOT $15.000
INSTEAD OF THE $10.000 IN THE
RED?

07:11:37.844,07:11:43.474
DOES ANYONE KNOW?
>> I RECALL THAT ONE AS WELL
ALDERMAN HODGES.

07:11:43.476,07:11:46.504
AND I BELIEVE THE ANSWER IS
THEY DID IN FACT DO A LITTLE
MORE RESEARCH.

07:11:46.506,07:11:52.090
AND THE COST OF STORAGE REALLY
IS GOING DOWN VERY
CONSIDERABLY.

07:11:52.092,07:11:55.256
SO THEY CAME UP WITH ONE-THIRD
LOWER NUMBER.
AND I BET IF WE ASK THEM NEXT

07:11:55.258,07:12:00.757
YEAR IT WILL BE LOWER THAN
THAT.
>> BUT IS THERE A PHYSICAL

07:12:00.759,07:12:04.399
STORAGE INVOLVED?
SOMEWHERE IN THE SYSTEM–.
>> YOUR WORSHIP THERE IS A

07:12:04.401,07:12:09.009
NEED TO HAVE A SERVER
SOMEWHERE.
UPON WHICH THE MATERIAL

07:12:09.011,07:12:15.885
RESIDES AND YOU HAVE TO PAY
FOR THAT.
WE ARE NOT GOING TO RELY ON

07:12:15.887,07:12:20.591
THE CLOUD.
>> IT IS NOT PAPER.
IT IS A GIANT COMPUTER

07:12:20.593,07:12:23.296
ATTACHED TO A HARD DRIVE
SOMEWHERE.
AND WHEN THE MEETINGS GO THIS

07:12:23.298,07:12:32.801
LONG, GIANT, GIANT, GIANT HARD
DRIVE.
THANKS, ALDERMAN DID YOU WANT

07:12:32.803,07:12:36.676
TO CLOSE?
ALL RIGHT, ON THIS ONE ON THE
RECOMMENDATIONS ARE WE AGREED?

07:12:36.678,07:12:40.818
VERY WELL THEN.
ARE WE OPPOSED?
ALDERMAN CHABOT IS OPPOSED.

07:12:40.820,07:12:45.156
FIRST READING OF THE BYLAW
THEN, ARE WE AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

07:12:45.158,07:12:48.720
ALDERMAN CHABOT IS OPPOSE SNPD
SECOND READING.
AGREED?

07:12:48.722,07:12:53.161
OPPOSED?
ALDERMAN CHABOT IS OPPOSED?
AUTHORIZATION FOR BYLAW

07:12:53.163,07:12:57.798
AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?
ALDERMAN CHABOT IS OPPOSED.

07:12:57.800,07:13:04.798
CARRIED, THANK YOU.
AND 10.1.2 HAS BEEN TABLED.
THAT TAKES US NOW TO–.

07:13:04.800,07:13:09.979
>> AND YOUR WORSHIP I’LL MOVE
THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF 2011 34
THE PROPERTY TAX RELATED

07:13:09.981,07:13:19.014
BYLAW.
>> THANKS ALDERMAN LOW.
DO I HAVE A SECONDER?

07:13:19.016,07:13:24.084
THANK YOU.
ALL RIGHT THEN, SO ANY
DISCUSSION ON THIS ONE?

07:13:24.086,07:13:34.230
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ONE,
GUYS.
>> WITH THAT TONE OF REZING

07:13:34.232,07:13:37.626
VEGAS, YOUR WORSHIP.
PERHAPS THROUGH THE CHURCH TO
Mr. SAWYER.

07:13:37.628,07:13:44.671
I GET A LOT OF QUESTIONS WHICH
I DO A POOR JOB OF RESPONDING
TO ABOUT 10.4% FOR MUNICIPAL

07:13:44.673,07:13:50.042
PURPOSES.
AND MINE IS 2.5% FOR
PROVINCIAL PURPOSES.

07:13:50.044,07:13:52.783
I THINK YOU KNOW WHAT I’M
TALKING ABOUT.
COULD YOU PLEASE ELABORATE ON

07:13:52.785,07:14:02.596
THAT?
>> UH, YOUR WORSHIP, I THINK
IF THE LAST COUNCIL MEETING,

07:14:02.598,07:14:10.428
THERE WAS A DECISION TO SET
THE TAX RATES BASED ON AVERAGE
OF 4.4% ON THE MUNICIPAL, OR

07:14:10.430,07:14:15.462
ON THE RESIDENTIAL AND THE
NON-RESIDENTIAL?
SO WHEN YOU TAKE A MINUS 2.5%

07:14:15.464,07:14:23.065
IN THE PROVINCIAL PORTION, AND
WANT TO GET TO A 4.4 WEIGHTED
AVERAGE COMPOSITE, THAT

07:14:23.067,07:14:29.147
TRANSLATES TO THE 10.4
CALCULATION.
SO 10.4 AND THE MINUS 2.5

07:14:29.149,07:14:34.847
COMPOSITE THE 4.4.
SAME CALCULATION IS DONE ON
THE NON-RESIDENTIAL AND THAT’S

07:14:34.849,07:14:38.147
HOW BOTH THE RESIDENTIAL AND
NON-RESIDENTIAL AVERAGE TO
4.4%.

07:14:38.149,07:14:44.855
>> COMPOSITE OF WHAT TWO
FACTORS OR SEVERAL FACTORS?
>> COMPOSITE OF THE PROVINCIAL

07:14:44.857,07:14:55.162
PORTION OF THE TOTAL TIMES
MINUS 2.5 AND THE MUNICIPAL
PORTION TIMES– AND IT

07:14:55.164,07:15:01.434
CALCULATES OUT AT 10.4.
SUCH THE COMPOSITE IS 4.4.
SO COMPOSITE WITHIN THE

07:15:01.436,07:15:06.928
RESIDENTIAL OF THE– OR SORRY,
IT’S THE COMPOSITE OF THE
RESIDENTIAL AND

07:15:06.930,07:15:15.384
NON-RESIDENTIAL WITHIN THE
MUNICIPAL PORTION COMBINED
WITH THE PROVINCIAL PORTIONS.

07:15:15.386,07:15:20.953
WHEN HELPING.
>> SO, IT’S–.
IT’S LATE.

07:15:20.955,07:15:30.902
UM, SO IT’S 4.4% IS THE FINAL
NUMBER FOR RESIDENTIAL
PROPERTY TAX, AND THAT

07:15:30.904,07:15:39.838
REPRESENTS THE RESIDENTIAL
MUNICIPAL RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY
TAX AND PROVINCIAL IN THE

07:15:39.840,07:15:46.045
CONTEXT OF– IF WE WERE TO
INCLUDE THE NON-RES, THEN THAT
WOULD BRINGTOUS 10.4?

07:15:46.047,07:15:58.871
>> NO, WITHIN BASICALLY YOU
TAKE THE MINUS 2.5 ON THE RES,
THAT COMPOSITES TO 4.4 ON THE

07:15:58.873,07:16:13.590
RESIDENTIAL.
THAT ALSO COMPOSITES TO 4.4.
SO THE RESIDENTIAL COMPOSITES

07:16:13.592,07:16:18.427
TO 4.4.
SO THE TOTAL BILL PROVINCIAL
AND MUNICIPAL GOES UP 4.4%.

07:16:18.429,07:16:27.804
SAME WITH THE NON-RES.
>> AND WHAT DOES THE 10.4 COME
FROM THEN?

07:16:27.806,07:16:32.605
>> 10.4 RELATES TO THE
MUNICIPAL PORTION AND MINUS
2.5 RELATES TO THE PROVINCIAL

07:16:32.607,07:16:35.675
PORTION.
OF THE RESIDENTIAL.
BOTH THE MUNICIPAL PORTION OF

07:16:35.677,07:16:40.380
THE RESIDENTIAL, PROVINCIAL
PORTIONER OF THE RESIDENTIAL,
RESIDENTIAL BILL IN TOTAL GOES

07:16:40.382,07:16:49.902
UP 4.4%.
>> I’M GETTING THERE.
THANK YOU.

07:16:49.904,07:16:56.208
>> THANK YOU ALDERMAN.
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I WISHED
I JUST CALLED FOR THE VOTE

07:16:56.210,07:17:00.068
RIGHT AWAY.
ALDERMAN CHABOT.
AND IT’S NOT JUST WHEN

07:17:00.070,07:17:07.069
ALDERMAN CHABOT’S LIGHT GOES
ON.
>> Mr. SAYER, MINUS 2.5 BY THE

07:17:07.071,07:17:10.706
PROVINCE.
AND THEY TOOK AN ADDITIONAL
$3.6 MILLION OUT OF THIS

07:17:10.708,07:17:13.306
MUNICIPALITY.
WHY IS IT NEGATIVE?
BECAUSE THEY TOOK LESS THAN

07:17:13.308,07:17:20.271
THE GROSS?
>> YOUR WORSHIP, IT’S
BASICALLY THE ABSOLUTE DOLLARS

07:17:20.273,07:17:27.944
ON THE PROVINCIAL WAS AN
INCREASE OF .6 PFRS– .6%.
BUT WHEN YOU FACTOR IN THE

07:17:27.946,07:17:32.011
ENTIRE ASSESSMENT BASE IN
ORDER TO GENERATE THAT AMOUNT
OF MONEY, IT’S ACTUALLY A

07:17:32.013,07:17:36.544
MINUS 2.5%.
>> ASSESSMENT WENT UP PLUS
GROWTH.

07:17:36.546,07:17:40.179
SO THE MID MILL RATE GOES DOWN
TO THE TUNE OF 2.5% ON THE
EDUCATION STUFF?

07:17:40.181,07:17:47.859
>> THE PROVINCIAL SIDE, THAT’S
RIGHT.
>> $3.6 MILLION INCREASE IN

07:17:47.861,07:17:52.698
REVENUE TO THEM?
>> THEY ARE STILL GETTING
ADDITIONAL REVENUE COMPARED TO

07:17:52.700,07:17:55.099
LAST YEAR.
>> OKAY.
I WON’T BELABER THIS YOUR

07:17:55.101,07:18:01.706
WORSHIP.
I VOTED AGAINST IT BEFORE.
AND I’LL BE AS WELL.

07:18:01.708,07:18:06.744
>> THANKS ALDERMAN CHABOT.
IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE
CORRECT ON THE $3.6 MILLION

07:18:06.746,07:18:10.811
BUT WOULDN’T BIT FUN TO DO A
CALCULATION ON HOW MUCH THE
ENTIRE TAKE OF PROVINCIAL

07:18:10.813,07:18:13.079
GOVERNMENT HAS INCREASED FROM
THE CITY OF CALGARY IN THE
LAST YEAR?

07:18:13.081,07:18:17.546
I GUARANTEE YOU THE DOLLAR
VALUES WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY
HIGHER THAN WHAT WE’RE BEING

07:18:17.548,07:18:25.359
SKZ TO ACCRUE TODAY.
YEP, YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
ALDERMAN LOWE DID YOU WANT TO

07:18:25.361,07:18:28.060
CLOSE?
>> CLOSED, YOUR WORSHIP.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

07:18:28.062,07:18:33.403
ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS THEN,

07:18:33.405,07:18:38.073

I THINK THAT’S IT.
ALL RIGHT.
THAT TAKES US TO LPT.

07:19:46.200,07:19:50.703
10.2.1 ALDERMAN CHABOT?
?
>> YOUR WORSHIP HAPPY TO MOVE

07:19:50.705,07:19:58.782
ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND
WILLING TO OPEN AND CLOSE ON
ANY AND ALL ISSUES IF THE NEED

07:19:58.784,07:20:04.187
ARISES.
IF YOU’D LIKE I CAN START WITH
THE 2011-12.

07:20:04.189,07:20:09.616
THERE IS A COORDINATED SAFETY
RESPONSE TEAM MADE A
PRESENTATION TO COMMITTEE

07:20:09.618,07:20:14.456
IDENTIFYING HOW THEY WILL BE
DEALING WITH THE ABANDONED
PROPERTIES AS WELL AS

07:20:14.458,07:20:20.826
PROPERTIES THAT WERE USED FOR
GROW-OPS, IT’S A COORDINATED
EFFORT, MUNICIPAL, PROVINCIAL

07:20:20.828,07:20:24.396
AND SOME– I THINK SOME
FEDERAL INVOLVEMENT AS WELL,
YOUR WORSHIP.

07:20:24.398,07:20:31.332
AND OF COURSE THE INTENT IS TO
MOVE MORE QUICKLY.
MOVE FORWARD MORE QUICKLY ON

07:20:31.334,07:20:38.462
SOME OF THESE DERELICT
PROPERTIES AND EITHER SHUT
THEM DOWN.

07:20:38.464,07:20:45.175
OR DEMOLISH THEM.
OR POTENTIALLY EVEN DEMOLISH
THEM.

07:20:45.177,07:20:51.745
>> THANK YOU ALDERMAN CHABOT,
ANY DISCUSSION ON THIS ONE?
ALL RIGHT THEN, ON THE

07:20:51.747,07:20:56.851
RECOMMENDATIONS IN LPT
20111/12 AGREED?
ANY OPPOSED?

07:20:56.853,07:21:02.958
CARRIED.
THAT TAKES UT TO 10.2 IN YOUR
AGENDA.

07:21:02.960,07:21:09.091
ALDERMANS CHABOT.
>> A NUMBER OF RECOMMENDATIONS
AS HAD BEEN BROUGHT FORWARD TO

07:21:09.093,07:21:17.055
COMMITTEE PREVIOUSLY.
AND THESE WERE EXPLOREED MORE
FULLY IN REGARDS TO CPA’S

07:21:17.057,07:21:20.225
STRATEGIC REVIEW AND PLANS
MOVING FORWARD.
YOU WILL NOTE THAT THERE WAS A

07:21:20.227,07:21:25.404
RECOMMENDATION THAT WAS PUT
FORWARD, THAT I WASN’T IN
SUPPORT OF.

07:21:25.406,07:21:31.012
SO IF YOU WOULD, IF YOU COULD
CALL RECOMMENDATION NUMBER
FOUR FOR ME, AND IF THERE’S

07:21:31.014,07:21:35.424
ANY QUESTION, I’LL TRY AND
ADDRESS THEM IN MY QUOTES.
>> SO SORRY, YOU ARE MOVING

07:21:35.426,07:21:39.197
THE FIVE RECOMMENDATIONS OF
THE COMMITTEE, BUT YOU WANT ME
TO CALL FOUR SEPARATELY FROM

07:21:39.199,07:21:42.799
THE OTHERS?
NO PROBLEM.
ACTUALLY I HAVE A QUESTION ON

07:21:42.801,07:21:49.805
THIS ONE.
ON WHETHER IT’S ALDERMAN
CHABOT, GIVEN THAT WE ARE

07:21:49.807,07:21:55.002
CHANGING THE STRUCTURE OF THE
BOARD, DOES THAT MEAN THAT WE
WERE POINTING ALL NEW MEMBERS

07:21:55.004,07:21:59.510
TO THE BOARD NOW?
OR DOES IT WAIT FOR
ORGANIZATIONAL DAY?

07:21:59.512,07:22:03.245
ALDERMAN McCLOUD I THINK HAS
THE ANSWER FOR ME.
>> WE’VE DISCUSSED THIS.

07:22:03.247,07:22:11.327
AND PART OF THIS WHOLE
REORGANIZATION INVOLVES DOING
A GRID.

07:22:11.329,07:22:23.210
SKILLS AND APTITUDES ACTUALLY.
I THINK THE DAY OR PROBABLY
FINE OR MAYBE SLIGHTLY THAN

07:22:23.212,07:22:26.923
ALDERMAN HODGES MIGHT HAVE
SOMETHING MORE TO ADD TO THAT.
>> THANKS ALDERMAN HODGES?

07:22:26.925,07:22:33.855
>> FIRST OF ALL, YOUR WORSHIP,
ALDERMAN MACLEOD HAS BASICALLY
CORRECTED IT.

07:22:33.857,07:22:37.853
AT THE THE MARCH 21st MEETING
AT COUNCIL WE HAD ONE VACANCY
AT THE PRESENT TIME ON THE

07:22:37.855,07:22:43.699
BOARD.
AND WE– WE SAID MARCH 2 19S
WE WOULD BRING FORWARD A

07:22:43.701,07:22:48.935
RECOMMENDATION.
YOU HAVE FIVE OR SIX NAMES WHO
ARE APT TO FILL THAT VACANCY.

07:22:48.937,07:22:56.036
IT’S NOT CRITICAL, BUT IT IS
IMPORTANT TO HAVE A GOOD
SELECTION OF NAMES FOR THE

07:22:56.038,07:22:58.909
BOARD COMING UP FOR THE
ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING IN
OCTOBER.

07:22:58.911,07:23:05.085
RIGHT NOW THERE’S ONE VACANCY
ONLY IN THE CITIZEN GROUP.
>> THANK YOU ALDERMAN HODGES.

07:23:05.087,07:23:10.825
ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS
ONE?
JUST BEFORE I GO TO ALDERMAN

07:23:10.827,07:23:15.935
CHABOT TO CLOSE ON THIS, I
WILL DO WHAT I HAVEN’T DONE IN
A LONG TIME AND SPEAK FROM THE

07:23:15.937,07:23:18.773
CHAIR FOR JUST A SECOND.
WHICH IS THAT I AM VERY
PLEASED THAT THE

07:23:18.775,07:23:24.715
RECOMMENDATIONS ARE BEING
IMPLEMENTED.
A QUESTION REMAINS IN MY BRAIN

07:23:24.717,07:23:33.476
OTHER WHETHER THESE
RECOMMENDATIONS GO FAR ENOUGH.
CONTINUING TO HEAR A LOT ABOUT

07:23:33.478,07:23:41.855
THE BPA, I AM CERTAINLY
WILLING TO GIVE ME THE BENEFIT
OF THE DOUBT.

07:23:41.857,07:23:45.686
BUT I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED
IF WE FIND THAT WE HAVE MORE
WHAT WE HAVE TO DO WITH THIS

07:23:45.688,07:23:55.461
ORGANIZATION.
MAYBE EVEN ONE DAY.
ARLDMAN MACLEOD GO AHEAD.

07:23:55.463,07:23:58.500
>> I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY
THE BOARD IS VERY MUCH AWARE
OF THAT.

07:23:58.502,07:24:09.681
THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF A SERVICE
ORGANIZATION.
INSTEAD OF PUTTING ENFORCEMENT

07:24:09.683,07:24:13.575
IN THAT KAAI COTMY I THINK
ENFORCEMENT IS PART OF WHAT WE
OFFER TO THE CITIZENS OF

07:24:13.577,07:24:17.503
CALGARY AND WE NEED TO REFRAIN
SOME OF THAT.
VERY AWARE OF IT.

07:24:17.505,07:24:22.756
WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS THAT.
>> ALDERMAN CHABOT TO CLOSE?
>> THANK YOU YOUR WORSHIP.

07:24:22.758,07:24:26.522
SKPE DIDN’T REFERENCE THE
RECOMMENDATION NUMBER FOR AND
WHY AND ASK YOU TO CALL IT

07:24:26.524,07:24:30.056
SEPARATELY.
AND I JUST WANTED TO MAKE A
FEW QUICK COMMENTS ON

07:24:30.058,07:24:36.458
RECOMMENDATION NUMBER FOUR.
AND THE REASON WHY I VOTED
AGAINST IT AND WHY I WOULD

07:24:36.460,07:24:39.230
ENCOURAGE MEMBERS OF COUNCIL
TO VOTE AGAINST IT.
THERE WAS A NUMBER OF

07:24:39.232,07:24:43.398
RECOMMENDATIONS THAT CAME OUT
OF A CONSULTANT’S REPORT.
12, I BELIEVE.

07:24:43.400,07:24:50.273
AND OUT OF THOSE
RECOMMENDATIONS THERE WAS A
NUMBER OF DIFFERENT, UM, I

07:24:50.275,07:24:56.110
GUESS GROUPS THAT CAME FORWARD
LOOKING FOR SOME
RECOMMENDATIONS TO BE ADOPTED.

07:24:56.112,07:24:59.984
THERE WAS A NUMBER OF
RECOMMENDATIONS OR REQUESTS BY
INDEPENDENT GROUPS THAT

07:24:59.986,07:25:06.191
WEREN’T ADOPTED.
AND THE BRC, SPECIFICALLY
LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL SOURCES

07:25:06.193,07:25:10.860
OF REVENUE.
AND NOT ALL BRCs ARE CREATED
EQUALLY I GUESS THE PROBABLY

07:25:10.862,07:25:16.390
THE BEST WAY I COULD PUT IT.
AND SOME OF THE BRCs IN THE
DOWNTOWN DO HAVE SIGNIFICANT

07:25:16.392,07:25:21.259
PARKING REVENUES ASSOCIATED
WITH THEIR AREAS.
THAT DOESN’T NOT NECESSARILY

07:25:21.261,07:25:27.709
REFLECTED IN ALL OF THE BRCs
THROUGHOUT THE CITY.
PART OF THE REQUEST HAD TO DO

07:25:27.711,07:25:34.689
WITH SHARING OF REVENUE.
I DIDN’T THINK IT WAS FAIR
THAT WE SHOULD SEPARATE ONE

07:25:34.691,07:25:46.608
BRC FROM ANOTHER.
IN REGARDS TO POTENTIAL
ABILITY TO SELF-FINANCE.

07:25:46.610,07:25:50.439
IF THEY WANTED TO MAYBE
APPOINT IT TO THE BOARD THAT
MIGHT BE ANOTHER ISSUE.

07:25:50.441,07:25:56.445
BUT HAVING DIRECT PUT ON CPA
AND PARKING STRATEGY DOWNTOWN
IN PARTICULAR.

07:25:56.447,07:26:01.523
PUTS THEM IN A POSITION THAT
NO OTHER GROUPS ARE ENTITLED
TO.

07:26:01.525,07:26:06.097
AND THAT’S WHY I VOTED AGAINST
RECOMMENDATION FOR AND WOULD
ASK OTHER MEMBERS OF COUNCIL

07:26:06.099,07:26:15.231
TO CONSIDER THAT IN THEIR
DECISIONS.
>> RECOMMENDATIONS ONE, TWO,

07:26:15.233,07:26:18.502
THREE AND FIVE.
ONE, TWO, THREE AND FIVE
AGREED?

07:26:18.504,07:26:22.475
ANY OPPOSED?
CARRIED.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOUR, AGREED?

07:26:22.477,07:26:36.876
ANY OPPOSED?
YOU’LL HAVE TO CALL THE ROLE,
PLEASE.

07:26:36.878,07:26:39.481

>> NO.
>> NOW WHAT WE WILL DO IS GO
FOR NUMBER FIVE REQUIRING AN

07:27:14.940,07:27:18.341
AMENDMENT TO THE BYLAW.
FIRST READING OF THE BYLAW
THEN ARE WE AGREED?

07:27:18.343,07:27:22.177
ANY OPPOSED?
CARRIED.
OH, ALDERMAN CHABOT IS POSED.

07:27:53.142,07:28:00.999
UNDER FOUR, SUB C, CHIEF
FINANCIAL OFFICER HAS STRUCK
OUT THE AREA WHICH WE COULD

07:28:01.001,07:28:04.741

>> SO I’VE GOT THIS IN WRITING

07:28:04.743,07:28:09.485
WHICH I’LL PASS ON.
SO 4-1 NOW READS THE AUTHORITY
SHOULD BE COMPOSED OF NINE

THROUGHOUT THE CITY,
RECOMMENDED IN HEALTH DRAFTED
THIS MOTION ARISING WHICH I

07:42:41.616,07:42:46.452
THINK IS SELF-EXPLANATORY.
I THINK IT WILL LEAD TO
ACTIVITIES BETWEEN SEVERAL OF

07:42:46.454,07:42:51.924
THE LARGE CITIES IN CANADA
WHICH ARE EXPERIENCING CELL
TOWER LOCATION PROBLEMS.

07:42:51.926,07:42:56.637

PREVIOUS DIRECTION OR DATE I
DON’T BELIEVE WE APPOINT
ANYONE TO ANY ONE COMMITTEE

07:44:11.252,07:44:17.120
FOR EXCESS OF ONE YEAR I WANT
TO CHANGE IT FROM A THREE YEAR
TERM 0 TO A 1 YEAR TERM AND

07:44:17.122,07:44:22.298
THEN JUST WONDERING WHETHER OR
NOT IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE AT
THIS TIME TO LOOK AT A

COMMENCEMENT OF THIS TERM TO
EXPIRE IN 2012, AS THIS IS
BASICALLY STARTING AND

07:44:32.911,07:44:37.304
ESSENTIALLY A ONE-YEAR TERM
WOULD BE SERVED AS OF OCTOBER
OF 2012.

07:44:37.306,07:44:45.089
PLUS A COUPLE OF MONTHS.

07:45:39.472,07:45:47.401
WHAT WE DID IS WE ACTUALLY
SENT OUT A REQUEST FOR IDEAS

WE RECEIVED 177 RESPONSES FROM
25 OUT OF 32 BUSINESS UNITS.
