Ramsay – Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP)

Area Redevelopment Plans (ARPs) are planning documents which set out comprehensive programs of land use policies and other proposals that help guide the future of individual communities.

Draft of merged Inglewood-Ramsay ARP available for review

  • As of Q2, 2018, The City has decided to merge the two draft Area Redevelopment Plans (ARPs) for Inglewood and Ramsay. The new plan area for the merged ARP: Inglewood-Ramsay: Historic East Calgary Communities Local Area Plan, combines the areas previously covered by the Inglewood ARP and Ramsay ARP.
    This will allow the two communities to share a basic approach to growth while recognizing individual differences where appropriate. The plans share a lot of common policies and the two communities have been planned as a unit from the start of this process in mid-2015.

  •  The draft plan has been developed based on the draft Guidebook for Great Communities (Mar 2020), which was presented at the Standing Policy Committee on Planning and Urban Development (PUD) on March 4, 2020. On Monday June 15, 2020, Council approved a motion to refer the Guidebook for Great Communities (Guidebook) back to the July 15, 2020  Standing Policy Committee on Planning and Urban Development (PUD) meeting, rather than proceeding to a public hearing of Council.T his draft LAP is also based on the North Hill Communities Local Area Plan following engagement done in 2019 with B&A Planning Group. The recommendation report that B&A drafted can be found here. The draft Historic East Calgary Communities Local Area Plan must be read in conjunction with the Guidebook and will continue to align with the Guidebook, if further changes are made to that document. Additionally, the Historic East Calgary – What We Heard and Did report based on B&A Planning Group’s Recommendations. For further reference, you can find the What We Heard report and previous engagement summaries from past work in the Document Library on

Community Guide to the Planning Process (2014)

The Federation of Calgary Communities, in collaboration with The City of Calgary, maintains the guide to assist communities dealing with development and planning issues.

City of Calgary Municipal Development Plan (MDP) Website

Calgary’s MDP and its accompanying maps contain policies that will shape how Calgary grows and develops over the next 30 to 60 years. The MDP aims to build a city where people can choose from a variety of housing types in numerous unique communities.

Calgary Transportation Plan

The MDP works together with the Calgary Transportation Plan to provide multiple transportation options so all Calgarians – whether travelling by car, bike transit or foot – are able to travel safely and conveniently to meet their daily needs.

Calgary Transit Green Line

Vision: A transit service that improves mobility in existing and new communities in north and southeast Calgary, connecting people and places, and enhancing the quality of life in the city.

City of Calgary Main Streets

Main streets are active areas that attract Calgarians to socialize, work, shop, dine, and celebrate local events. They are also often important transportation routes. The City’s Main Streets initiative will analyze the needs of neighbourhood residents, along with economic research, to identify success criteria for future growth in these areas.

City of Calgary Heritage Planning

The Calgary Heritage Strategy presents a new vision for historic preservation for The City. Calgary will be a place where The City works with a broad range of stakeholders to help build a culture of preservation. New development will continue and the best of the past will be integrated to create a hybrid of old and new that will be a source of civic pride and provide educational, environmental, social and financial benefits.
