Background information:

What do the blanket zoning changes mean?

  • The majority of properties in Brentwood are zoned R-C1, which allows for one house on one property (plus an option for a secondary suite).
  • The proposal would change the base zoning from R-C1 to R-CG, which allows for rowhouses and multiplex units.  Each rowhouse unit may also contain a secondary suite, which means that on a standard lot, there could be 4 rowhouse units plus 4 suites, for a total of 8 units.
  • R-CG zoning has 2 other significant changes:  lot coverage and height.
  • Lot coverage:  An R-C1 house can cover a maximum of 45% of the lot, and most houses in Brentwood cover far less.  (Part of the reason there are so many fir trees in Brentwood is because there is space for them on private properties, even though they have a large spread at maturity.) An R-CG rowhouse can cover up to 60% of the lot.
  • Height:  An R-C1 house can be either 8.6 meters high (contextual) or maximum 10 meters high (discretionary).  An R-CG can be 11 meters high, an additional 3+ feet in height.

Blanket City-Wide Rezoning to R-CG – UPDATE

Brentwood Community Association – Follow-up from February 8th meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended, well over 100 people in total!

We will be following up directly through emails, but please be patient as we need to type up and process all of the contact information first.

1.  If you provided your email, you will be on our list and we will contact you directly with any updates.

2. If you didn’t receive a copy of the feedback sheet, sorry that we ran out.  We will make those available on the BCA website.  We appreciate your patience.

3.  You can also write a letter directly to the BCA at office@brentwoodcommunity.com

4.  If you have written an email or dropped off a feedback form at the BCA, thank you!  We may not be able to get back to you right away, but we are interested in hearing from you.

General impressions of what we heard at the meeting:
1.  Few of the people present had attended a City open house or online event.

2.  Some people did not receive the City postcard (or don’t remember receiving it)

3.  Very few people had scanned the code on the postcard.

4.  A majority of residents were not familiar with what R-CG zoning meant.  Photos on the slide presentation showed how the building form of an R-CG might impact the adjacent homes.  Residents seemed to appreciate the visuals and the information presented.

5.  Some attendees were very concerned about the green strip area behind the back alleys from Brenner to 14th Street:  it shows up on the City rezoning map in orange, which indicates areas for rezoning.  We are following up with the City to get clarification as to why these areas were coloured orange.

Thank you for your interest!

Blanket City-Wide Rezoning to R-CG

Blanket City-Wide Rezoning to R-CG

You likely received a postcard from the City in the mail recently.  The postcard provided very little information other than some links for you to access on your own.

Thank you to the resident who recently contacted the Brentwood Community Association to ask what the proposed zoning changes mean, as well as how community members can get involved.  The BCA will plan for an open house in February with the date(s) to be determined.  Stay tuned.

What do the blanket zoning changes mean?

  • The majority of properties in Brentwood are zoned R-C1, which allows for one house on one residential lot (plus an option for a secondary suite).
  • The proposal would change the base zoning from R-C1 to R-CG, which allows for rowhouses and townhouses.  Each rowhouse unit may also contain a secondary suite, which means that on a standard lot, there could be 4 rowhouse units plus 4 suites, for a total of 8 units.
  • Find your address on this map to see if your property will be impacted:  Rezoning for housing (calgary.ca)
  • R-CG zoning has 2 other major changes:  lot coverage and height.
  • Lot coverage:  An R-C1 house can cover a maximum of 45% of the lot, and most houses in Brentwood cover far less.  (Part of the reason there are so many fir trees in Brentwood is because there is space for them on private properties, even though they have a large spread at maturity.) An R-CG rowhouse can cover up to 60% of the lot.
  • Height:  An R-C1 house can be either 8.6 meters high (contextual) or maximum 10 meters high (discretionary).  An R-CG can be 11 meters high, an additional 3+ feet in height.
  • Blanket upzoning is a very substantial change – likely the biggest zoning change the City has ever implemented.
  • It would apply to every single R-C1 or R-C2 (duplex) property in Calgary.
  • Council will have to vote on and approve this proposal.  The date for the Public Hearing is April 22, 2024.

Where to learn more about the proposed blanket rezoning changes:
