Help guide a rezoning for land at 11420 60 Avenue NW in the Lendrum Place neighbourhood.

Public engagement activities, history and reports helping to guide the rezoning proposal in the Lendrum Place neighbourhood.

About the Proposal

The proposed rezoning of the site from a Low Rise Apartment Zone (RA7) to a Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) would allow for the redevelopment of the existing Ledrum Manor and Lendrum Villa affordable housing site.  

The proposed redevelopment would consist of two new apartment buildings with the following features:

  • Tiered up to six storeys (20 metres)
  • Maximum of 126 residential units
  • A mix of market and non-market rental housing
  • Opportunity for ground level amenities or commercial services, such as a convenience store or daycare.
  • Parking underground and to the rear of the development
  • A publicly-accessible pathway through the site connecting towards the South Campus/Fort Edmonton Park LRT station

Open House

January 23, 2018

Citizens were invited to an open house information session to learn more about the proposed rezoning before going to City Council Public Hearing for a final decision.

More than 25 people attended and provided feedback on the proposal. This feedback is summarized in the What We Heard Report.

Public Engagement Process

The City requires all applicants seeking direct control rezonings to undertake consultation before submitting a formal rezoning application for processing.

In 2016, Capital Region Housing Corporation worked with the City and the Lendrum Community League to pilot a unique pre-application engagement process for the redevelopment of the Lendrum Villa and Lendrum Manor affordable housing site.

This pilot engagement process was led by a 5-member panel whose purpose was to bring Capital Region Housing and the community together in a transparent forum to share perspectives, and address potential conflicts with the proposed development at an early stage.

The panel consisted of:

  • 3 independent members
  • 1 member representing the developer, and
  • 1 member representing the Lendrum Community League

The 3 independent panel members were selected based on their skills, including conciliation/resolution, negotiation, organization, facilitation, residential project management, and neighbourhood planning experience.

City staff provided resources to the panel as the panel planned and carried out four public engagement events.

The results of this pilot pre-application engagement process will be used to help determine the benefits of taking a similar approach with comparable future planning applications.
