Winter 2017/2018 - Outreach & Public Engagement Design
The City will reach out to Skyrattler residents to help identify opportunities to improve on how we communicate and engage with the community. This feedback will be used to design the public engagement process that will be used to gather input on the potential First Place development sites.
Winter/Spring 2018 - Rezoning of Potential Alternative Sites
In order for the City to verify if the potential alternative site at 119 Street and 23 Avenue is a feasible alternative, a rezoning application for the proposed First Place land use for the site (townhomes) must be submitted through the normal land development application process for technical evaluation and consideration by City Council. There will be an opportunity for residents to share their views with Council when the proposed rezoning goes forward to Public Hearing.
Spring to Fall 2018 - Community Input on Site Options (dependent on outcome of rezoning)
Should Council approve the rezoning for the alternative site, the City will then reach out to the Skyrattler community to gather input on considerations to take into account when determining the First Place development site location - either the 119 Street and 23 Avenue alternative site, or the Council-approved site. This feedback will be used to inform a report to City Council for their final decision on the location for the Skyrattler First Place development.
If Council does not approve the required zoning for the potential alternative First Place building site, design engagement and development will proceed on the original Council-approved building site.
Winter/Spring 2019 - Council Decision on Site Options (dependent on outcome of rezoning)
If rezoning for the alternative site is approved by Council, City Administration will prepare a report for City Council recommending the location for the First Place development within Skyrattler. Both the Council-approved site and the alternative site will be presented in the report. The recommendation presented will take into account input received from the community along with other important criteria, such as technical and financial considerations. Based on the information presented in this report, City Council will make the final decision on the location for the Skyrattler First Place development.
Fall /Winter 2019/2020 - Design Engagement (Developer Led)
A group of neighbourhood residents will be recruited through an open application process to work with the builder/operator to help design the new homes on the Skyrattler First Place site and ensure they are a good fit with the surrounding neighbourhood. This will include providing input on design elements, such as building orientation and shape, number of homes, rooflines, site access, vistas, and exterior home design details and landscaping.
Spring/Summer 2020 - Construction & New Homes Sales
Construction and new homes sales will begin after the completion of the design engagement process. The new homes will be constructed in accordance with the outcome of the design engagement process.
