As per the City’s planning process, a Neighbourhood Structure Plan is required to provide the detailed planning policy to guide land use and future legal subdividing of a plan area. An NSP serves as a statutory document that provides the rationale and logic behind the design for future development.
Through the preparation of the NSP, it was determined that amendments to the Chinook Winds Community Area Structure Plan (CASP) are required to ensure Southwinds NSP area can be developed efficiently and meet the needs of future residents. A City of Airdrie recreation centre and Rocky View School District high school site are planned within the NSP area and were not included in the current version of the CASP.
Mattamy is pursuing an amendment to the Chinook Winds CASP concurrently with the Neighbourhood Structure Plan.
