Regional Drainage Study Update

The City is conducting a comprehensive regional drainage study for the Confederation Creek catchment area. Once complete, this regional drainage study will mitigate existing drainage issues within the catchment area and inform the proposed development on the former Highland Park golf course lands.

  • Early findings initially identified four possible options. Options 1 and 2 are not viable solutions, while Options 3 and 4 are being further explored and refined.
  • The final report is expected in Fall 2018. The City will have more information once the report and technical analyses have been completed.
  • Construction cannot occur until the appropriate storm water management solutions for the entire catchment area are identified and implemented.
  • Confederation Regional Drainage Study – Early Findings were presented to Council on January 29, 2018.

Crown Ownership Update

  • Water courses can be deemed Crown-owned under the Public Lands Act.
  • Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) has confirmed Crown ownership for a portion of the drainage course (which includes the former Highland Park golf course lands).
  • The Government of Alberta will work with the landowner to identify the Crown-owned bed and shore.

Next Steps

  • Implications for development of the former Highland Park golf course lands are unknown until the Regional Drainage Study is complete, and the Crown-owned bed and shore has been identified.
  • The City is committed to informing communities within the drainage catchment area as the final results of the study are known and their potential impacts on the proposed development are determined.
  • Completion of the report and technical analysis is anticipated late 2018.

Project Background

In December 2014, The City received an application from the landowner, Maple Projects Inc., to redevelop the former Highland Park Golf Course lands. The application proposed a variety of multi-residential buildings of varying heights and forms, commercial retail space, and open space components including parks and pathways. There were two parts to the application: an outline plan and a land use amendment.

  • An outline plan informs the future subdivision of the lands, including infrastructure, road size and location, distribution of open space and the location of various land use districts. Calgary Planning Commission (CPC) is responsible for making a decision on the outline plan. The outline plan was approved by CPC in October 2017.
  • land use amendment is used to change the existing land use designation (zoning) to accommodate the land use proposed in the outline plan. City Council is responsible for making a decision on the land use amendment. The land use amendment was approved by Council in March 2017.
