With the approval of Home is Here: The City of Calgary’s Housing Strategy, Council directed us to take actions to address the housing crisis. One of these actions is the proposed citywide rezoning to a base residential district, or zone. This change will help increase the supply of housing to meet demand. This will also significantly reduce the costs and timelines for permit approvals, and allow for greater housing variety and options to suit your needs.

No zoning will change without Council approval.

A public hearing date has been set for April 22, 2024, when Administration will present a recommended approach to citywide rezoning to Council. The public may attend the public hearing in person or submit written input. Learn more about participating in public hearings at

    I am against the new rezoning. There are many areas to build 4/6 townhouses besides next to single dwelling homes. For example: underused parks, golf courses and city land.
    There is a parking issue with only having to provide parking for 1/2 of the units.
    The sewers and other city services will be overtaxed.
