Keystone Hills: Growing smart with your help

We’re planning new communities that will see our city grow smart and sustainably in response to Council’s approved strategic direction. One of these new communities is called Keystone Hills and we’re seeking your input on our work.

The Keystone Hills area is located on Centre Street North past Stoney Trail. It currently consists of mostly undeveloped farmland with a few buildings. The City of Calgary’s planning and transportation departments have been tasked with conducting an integrated study to create policies, designs and implementation practices for land use, urban design and mobility for the area.

We’d like to hear your input on our plans for Keystone Hills. To learn more please visit our project webpage and provide your input via our online survey. Calgarians are also invited to drop by our next open house to review and provide feedback on the land use and transportation options for the Keystone Hills Plan.

Date: Thursday, May 15, 2014
Time: 5 to 8 p.m. (Note: This is a drop in session, attendees can come at any time)
Location: Cardel Place at 11950 Country Village Link N.E.

It is expected that the development pattern for this area will be unprecedented in Calgary’s new community context. Keystone Hills is set to become a hub of employment, services and higher density housing with high quality urban design, quality public spaces and a mobility network that supports pedestrians, cyclists and transit. We’re aiming to use this land in an efficient way to create a community that really works for Calgarians.
