Proposed Land Use Change & Built Form

Existing Land Use

The current land use for the site is PD – Public Use District allowing for civic and institutional uses across the site. 

 

Proposed Land Use

Three separate parcels are proposed. Parcel 1 will include the existing school site and will remain PD - Public Use District. Parcel 3 will include the Daycare and remain PD – Public Use District. CRPS is not seeking a land use change for either of these parcels. 

CRPS is seeking a Direct Control land use for Parcel 2 based on slightly modified Medium Density Residential District as outlined in Canmore’s Land Use Bylaw. This proposed change aligns with the intent of the statutory and non-statutory plans that guide the development of this site and aligns with the Town of Canmore’s vision for civic and residential development in the heart of Canmore. The Direct Control residential land use will allow for a height of 14.5 metres to create a unique mixture of town homes and studios and a minimum of 25% of the site area will be landscaped. The CRPS is contemplating a total of up to 100 residential units.

The built form includes stacked townhomes, garden homes in 1, 2 and 3 bedroom configurations as well as studio apartments. This is consistent with the surrounding residential areas particularly the Elk Run townhouse development directly east of the site and to the new residential building being constructed north and west of the site.

Engagement 

Representatives from the town of Canmore have acknowledged that in-person engagement is not safe or possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to ensure that members of the public have an opportunity to review the proposed development, this website will be utilized for this project in addition to four, one-hour virtual Townhalls that we held.
