Proposed Blanket Rezoning, City Building and Calgary River Valleys Project

Blanket Rezoning of Calgary   All citizens of Calgary are urged to get informed and submit their comments to the City of Calgary on the proposed Blanket Rezoning of Calgary. The City of Calgary has several planning and rezoning initiatives underway. We strongly advise citizens to attend the upcoming information sessions on these planning initiatives, which are scheduled to go to Council Hearings in 2024 and thus be enacted into law.

The City of Calgary is proposing to implement citywide rezoning to a base residential zone of R-CG (Residential Grade Oriented) which would allow single-detached, semi-detached / duplexes, townhouses, secondary suites, and rowhouse-style housing in every neighbourhood. For compliant applications, this will remove residents’ ability to object to and appeal multifamily developments on adjacent lots. 

This item goes to the City Council for a public hearing on April 22, 2024. Online feedback is accepted till March 17, 2024. Learn more and give your input at

Additionally, Councillor Terry Wong (Ward 7) is hosting two townhalls to discuss this issue. City staff will be present. More information can be found at

City Building   This project revises the existing Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP) into a single document: The Calgary Plan. This would result
in a new Zoning Bylaw and the creation of a new Street Manual from the current Complete Street Policy & Guide.

Comments on Phase 2 are due by March 3, 2024. This item is proposed to go to Council Hearing in Fall 2024.
