Infill Regulations

The changes to infill regulations will be going to council during the March 23rd meeting. We would love it if Nutana residence made it out in support.

According to a longstanding member of the Nutana Community Association(NCA), this is a historical event for the NCA. 

The Nutana Community Association and the Varsity Community Association worked for years to get this initiative off the ground.  The origins stem out of the recommendations that came forth in the Broadway 360 Development Plan in 2009 as a way of protecting the delicate neighbourhood fabric in the residential blocks behind Broadway.

How to build appropriately in older neighbourhoods was a concept that caught a lot of interest, and gained momentum across the city, and before long, 17 community associations had joined together to work with the city to determine how these new regulations might take shape.  In 2011 The NCA co-authored and funded a 2 day workshop with a Toronto consultant at the Mendal Art Gallery called ‘Breathing New Life Into Older neighbourhoods: Guidelines for Shaping Healthy Urban Growth’.  The response was overwhelming, and representatives from 5 Canadian cities reserved seats for the event.

Overnight this concept was adopted by the city, and a search began for the right consultant and process.  In 2012, the consultants were named, and a very broad and inclusive process was launched, which has taken us all the way up to the present day.

It will be good to see this new regulatory structure finally make its way through council.
