Notice of Proposed Land Use Change

UPDATE: Avonmore Community League has been in communication with Green Space Alliance (GSA), who were was retained by Rosecroft Custom Homes Ltd. to prepare and submit an application to rezone the property located at 8311 - 76 Avenue NW. They have prepared this June 17th update for the community.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The City has informed the Avonmore Community League that an application has been made to rezone a lot in Avonmore and they are looking for feedback from the community.   Please read the material listed below and  send your  comments to:  City of Edmonton Planning Department andrew.mclellan@edmonton.ca and/or   Councillor Mike Nickel mike.nickel@edmonton.ca.   I would appreciate being copied on your response (president@avonmore.org) so we can summarize these comments in a response that will be submitted by the League.  Comments that have the most impact are those that include specific details about how you think the proposed change will impact you and your way of life either positively or negatively.

The application has been made to rezone the lot at 8311 76 Ave (on the south west side of the intersection currently has a yellow house) from RF1 Single Detached Residential to RA7 Low Rise Apartment Zone.  A description of what is included in RA7 can be found at https://webdocs.edmonton.ca/zoningbylaw/ZoningBylaw/Part2/Residential/210_(RA7)_Low_Rise_Apartment_Zone.htm.  You may want to review the Southeast Area Plan which applies to Avonmore as well as the more recently Council approved Transit Oriented Development Guidelines which provide suggestions about what type of development is appropriate within 400 m of LRT stations, like this one will be.
