A planning application (map) has been received for a plan amendment and rezoning of a site at 2611 111 Street NW.
The proposed rezoning from a Public Utility Zone (PU) to a Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) would allow for the parcel to be added as part of the larger high-density, mixed-use, transit-oriented urban village under development next to the Century Park LRT Station. It would also allow for the transition of the City-owned park and ride on this parcel into a temporary, privately owned and operated park and ride lot.
As the site develops out, the privately-owned and operated surface park and ride stalls would be replaced with shared parking in underground and/or parkade structures.
In this shared parking model, spaces will be managed so they can be used by different people throughout the day; such as residents, businesses, and park and ride commuters. The proposal allows for redevelopment with a mix of residential and commercial uses on a consolidated Century Park site.
The proposed rezoning adds 250 parking spaces to the total allowed at Century Park. The existing Century Park DC2 appendices would need to be updated accordingly. Amendments to the Kaskitayo Outline Plan revising the urban village concept references and maps would also be required to reflect the proposed rezoning.

An advanced notice was sent to surrounding residents and the Community League informing them of the application and meeting. The applicant was also invited and shared information on their long-term vision for the site. Approximately 20 people circulated through the open house.
