Community Winter Carnival

Mark your calendars for Saturday, January 27, 2018.
More details in an upcoming newsletter or special bulletin.
Missing Middle Housing
City council will be advancing a new initiative for middle density infill which will focus mainly around transit corridors, transit oriented development areas, pre-war, and RF3 neighbourhoods. This infill comprises of apartments under 6 storeys, row housing, and courtyard housing.
West Jasper Place is unique in that the community does not have a 'missing middle'. We have over 65% of dwellings as apartment units which is the direct opposite of most mature neighbourhoods. In order to encourage a diversity of housing, the Jasper Place ARP does not support new apartments in new areas of our community. New apartments are only permitted in our RA7 zones on 149th Street, 156th Street and between 100th Avenue and Stony Plain Road.
Developers Will be Door Knocking
We have been told that the federal government will advance funding for our West Valleyline LRT next spring. Developers will be anxious to purchase properties at a reduced rate now in West Jasper Place and Sherwood. Typically, land values increase once the LRT is operating. Our properties are centrally located; close to transit and community stores. Many have beautiful elm treed boulevards. Our multi-use trail and the short walking distance to the MacKinnon Ravine attracts active young families. Do not undersell your property! Teardown houses on lots approximately 50' x 149' have sold for $300,000. If you require further information, please phone Irene @ 780-489-2994.
