Ascension Project Updates

Virtual Information Session: A Virtual Information Session was held on Tuesday, September 12th from 6:00-7:30PM MST on Zoom. Participants were asked to pre-submit questions prior to the event to ensure the session included all required information. The pre-submitted questions guided the materials presented by the project team. The presentation was recorded to ensure those who were unable to attend the event could still be well informed.

Online Survey: Those who participated were asked to complete an online survey to share their feedback on the event and the project.
The survey closed on Tuesday, September 26th. An Engagement Summary will be prepared once the feedback is analyzed.

Question & Answer Sheet: The questions asked through the pre-submission process, during the Q&A period of the session, and within the online survey have been thoughtfully answered by the project team and combined into a Question & Answer Sheet.

Application Resubmission: With revisions based on County, public and stakeholder feedback received, the updated Ascension Land Use Amendment application was submitted to Rocky View County administration on September 14, 2023. The application is under review by the County and will be circulated to internal and external stakeholders and adjacent landowners in October 2023. This application is consistent with the information that was shared at the September 12, 2023, information session.

Public Hearing: The updated application is still being reviewed by Rocky View County, as well as feedback that they received from community members through the circulation process. This information should be provided to the project team soon. It is anticipated that a public hearing for Rocky View County Council to consider this application will be scheduled in January 2024. The County will advertise the public hearing on their website and mail a letter to adjacent landowners.

Highfield Land Management is working on a land use amendment application for the Ascension Conceptual Scheme Plan Area. The application was submitted in October 2022 and based on circulation comments received from the County and public, the application is being updated for resubmission. Visit the Project Resources tab to view the application and stay tuned for more information about future public engagement.
