Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP)

An Area redevelopment plan is an urban planning designation created by The City of Calgary to facilitate development in specific geographic areas. In practice, ARPs guide how existing built-up areas or neighbourhoods should develop in the future.

Crescent Heights is part of the first multi-community ARP. On September 14, 2021, City Council passed the North Hill Communities Local Area Plan (NHCLAP) which replaces our previous ARP.

To obtain a copy of the NHCLAP from the City’s website:

Note that a large part of Crescent Heights is in Heritage Guidelines areas, Section 2.6 of the NHCLAP.  New guidelines and bylaws are currently in development. We highly recommend that you contact the City’s Heritage Planning Group prior to any development application. Please email for more information.

Update: The Heritage Area Guidelines are in the final stages of development. Presentation to the public including public engagement is scheduled for September 2022.
