Morgan Heights NCP
Grandview Heights NCP Area #1: Morgan Heights
Morgan Heights is the name of a first neighbourhood to be planned within the broader Grandview Heights community. Planning for this area was guided by the 2005 Grandview Heights General Land Use Plan (GLUP). The Morgan Heights Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP), which followed the GLUP, features a mix of housing types with three new neighbourhood parks. It is centered on Southridge Private School.
This plan, now largely build out, provides direction on the type and density of development, urban design, parks and community amenities and engineering infrastructure for the neighbourhood.
The plan area is bordered by the Highway 99 Corridor Local Area Plan to the west, 28 Avenue to the north, 24 Avenue to the south and 164 Street to the east. The plan area encompasses about 80 hectares (196 acres) of land.
In 2003 Council identified Grandview Heights as an area of the City that would be suitable for new development. A General Land Use Plan (GLUP) was approved in 2005 to serve as an overall guide for land use, servicing and development in the area. It also identified the Neighbourhood Concept Planning (NCP) approach to plan future Grandview neighborhoods.
In January 2005 Council endorsed Corporate Report L001 which authorized staff to proceed with a Neighbourhood Concept Plan process for the Grandview Heights Area 1 (Morgan Heights) neighbourhood.
In April 2005, Council endorsed Corporate Report C006 which approved the draft (Stage 1) land use plan. Council also authorized staff to proceed with the Stage 2 component of the Plan.
In September 2005, Council endorsed Corporate Report C015 which approved the final (Stage 2) Plan. The report also including a detailed analysis of the planning, engineering and servicing requirements, as well as the financial strategy to implement the plan.
