12 Thousand Acres Plan

The City of Airdrie is undertaking a planning study for the 12,640 acres of land annexed from Rocky View County in 2012. This land is expected to provide the City of Airdrie with a 50 year land supply that will accommodate the development of services, amenities, and housing over the next several decades.

The 12 Thousand Acres Plan will lay the groundwork for how this development will happen. The goals of the project are to:

  1. Outline future Community Area Structure Plan (CASP) boundaries;
  2. Determine the sequencing for when new development areas can come online;
  3. Provide general direction on land uses for the annexed area, and;
  4. Outline what will be allowed for interim land uses before new areas are developed.

Along with the 12 Thousand Acres Plan, the City is also preparing a Community Area Structure Plan (CASP) for the lands east of the East Lake industrial area within the 12 Thousand Acres Plan boundary.

The final draft of the 12 Thousand Acres Plan is complete and available for review.

The plan is on track to proceed to Municipal Planning Commission for review on June 7 2018, and to Council for review and approval on June 18 2018.
