Grant MacEwan Proposed to be Rezoned Urban Institutional

There will be a Drop-In Open House on Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Grant MacEwan, 10035-156 Street. Administration is proposing to rezone the university to Urban Institutional which will permit Health Services and Extended Medical Treatment Services. These uses will permit a detoxification centre, a drug or alcohol rehabilitation clinic, a safe injection site, etc. This does not comply with the vision passed by city council which was “an intercultural interagency community hub for arts, recreation, wellness and learning.” Also, administration no longer makes reference to recreational use for the community.

Please attend the Open House and/or email: Brenda.Wong@edmonton.ca; Sean.Lee@edmonton.ca; Andrew.Knack@edmonton.ca; Ben.Henderson@edmonton.ca; and Don.Iveson@edmonton.ca.

State that administration must rezone Grant MacEwan to Direct Control NOT Urban Institutional so the uses are customized to what the communities and the Stony Plain Road BRZ support. Stress that you do not support Extended Medical Treatment Services or Health Services as a permitted use. Also, reaffirm that administration must support repurposing space in Grant MacEwan for recreational use as stated in city council’s vision.
