“Traffic updates”

52nd Street has been temporarily closed by the developer and will re-open  March 23rd at 6:00pm.
The City is in the process of installing a  4-way stop at 128th & Skyview Ranch Road.  The City engineers have completed the design work and now require the installation of concrete barriers to close off the east / west turn lanes.  The City has put in an order for barriers and once they are put in place the signage can be installed.

“Widening an Existing Driveway for Parking”

If you are thinking about widening your front driveway for parking you must first get approval from Transportation Planning by completing an online 311 Access Request for New or Widening Driveways. This is the first step in the development permit approval process.

Once you obtain approval from Transportation Planning, you can apply for a Development Permit for Driveway Relaxation. Contact or visit the Planning Services Counter for more information about how to apply for a development permit, the application process, and fees.

Development Permit applications are reviewed by The City, and can be approved with conditions or refused. The Land Use Bylaw 1P2007 regulates driveway width as follows:
·         Narrow properties with a width of nine meters or less, can have a driveway six metres wide
·         Properties larger than nine metres in width can have a driveway seven metres wide
·         Properties wider than 15 metres have no driveway restrictions under the current Land Use Bylaw.

An approved City Development Permit for an extended driveway might later require the city sidewalk or curb to be lowered or sloped to allow your vehicle to drive onto your driveway. You can obtain a free driveway crossing estimate from The City by completing an online 311 eServices – Request curb lowering for existing driveways estimate.”

Harmony Beef slaughter house

The Mayor’s Office has learned that the Development Permit for the expansion of the Harmony Beef Processing Plant to accommodate a wastewater treatment system will be coming before Rocky View County Council on Tuesday, September 15th.  The item is listed as  “D2” in the middle of the Rock View County Council Agenda (found here at:  http://www.rockyview.ca/Government/Council/CouncilAgenda.aspx).

The City of Calgary continues to dialogue with Rocky View County regarding our serious concerns with this development and how it may impact the quality of life of Calgarians residents.  We have recently reiterated The City of Calgary’s offer to help pay for a joint, independent, third party review of the waste-treatment technology.  We will keep you informed of any new developments.   We encourage all concerned citizens to communicate with Rocky View County Council and share their views on this issue.
