DISCUSSION

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.

                                                                          FILE: LUB/00-0118
                                                                          WOODCROFT
ANALYSIS
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
       development.
       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.

JUSTIFICATION
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.
