RECOMMENDATION: That Bylaw 12554 to amend the Land Use Bylaw from PU (Public
Utility) District to CSC (Shopping Centre) District be
1. The Application
This is an application to redistrict one lot, totalling 501 square meters in area, from PU
(Public Utility) District to CSC (Shopping Centre) District. The purpose of this
redistricting is to expand the variety and scope of commercial uses allowed on this site.
The applicant has purchased the site from EPCOR and wishes to amalgamate it with the
larger shopping center to the south owned by the applicant.
2. Site and Surrounding Area
The small site is located on the south side of 115 Avenue, west of St. Albert Trail on
vacant land districted PU. The site is surrounded on the three sides by a commercial
shopping centre. To the north across 115 Avenue are single detached dwellings in good
condition on lands districted RF1 (Single Detached Residential).
View of site looking south across 115 Avenue from 134 Street.
1. Land Use Compatibility
The previous use of this site was a power substation and was closed and made available for sale by
EPCOR. The obvious purchaser was the owners of the shopping center and they purchased it with
the intent to amalgamate it with the larger property that surrounds the site.
The general purpose of the proposed CSC District is to provide for the higher low intensity
commercial, office and service. The addition of the vacant site to the larger site is not expected to
have a significant impact on the developments to the north and west given the existing
In the opinion of the Planning and Development Department, this addition to the commercial site
is appropriate, and will result in development which will be compatible with both the existing and
proposed land uses.
2. Transportation and Utilities
The Transportation and Streets Department has no outstanding concerns with the proposed
redistricting, providing that access to the site remains unchanged.
There were no concerns expressed by the utility departments that reviewed this application. The
site is presently serviced and functioning adequately.
3. Surrounding Property Owners’ Concerns
The Planning and Development Department has not received any telephone calls or letters in
response to the letter of pre-notification regarding this redistricting application.
The Planning and Development Department recommends that Bylaw 12554 be APPROVED on the basis
that the change in zoning will not have a significant impact on the adjacent residential development and
will result in development which will be compatible with the existing and proposed land uses.
