MetadataShow full item record
AbstractA need was identified to address the planning process for the development of the West Campus Lands of the University of Calgary due to the sensitive nature and large-scale development of the site within the surrounding established communities. Through key informant interviews, the main issues and concerns regarding the development of the West Campus Lands were identified. A review of public policy documents provided the policy direction to resolve them. Common themes were divided into the categories of land uses, transportation, linkages, environmental issues and relations in order to analyze how existing plans for the West Campus Lands addressed multiple stakeholder interests. Key unresolved issues were identified through the analysis and used as a basis to provide recommendations and develop a conceptual land use plan to guide future development of the West Campus Lands. The recommendations and conceptual land use plan are directed towards planners for the West Campus Lands including officials from the University, the Calgary Health Region, the City of Calgary and the surrounding communities.
