Ascension Conceptual Scheme Public Hearing – April 20, 2021

The Ascension Conceptual Scheme was further updated based on feedback received during the December 2020 – January 2021 recirculation and resubmitted to Rocky View County in March 2021. A Public Hearing was scheduled for April 20, 2021, at which time a motion was made to postpone the Public Hearing to June 1, 2021, to allow area landowners additional time to review the plan and provide feedback.

Conceptual Scheme Re-Circulation Comments

The Ascension Conceptual Scheme was re-circulated to Rocky View County, Key Stakeholders and the Public in late 2020 and responses to those comments and revisions to the plan were made in early 2021. A summary of  responses to the questions and concerns received from area landowners has been attached on the Project Resources page.

Conceptual Scheme Submitted to Rocky View County

The Ascension Conceptual Scheme was resubmitted to Rocky View County in September 2020 and is undergoing circulation with the County and Key Stakeholders.  Any recommended revisions to the plan will be considered until January 4, 2021 so please provide your comments through the “Get in Touch” page of this website.
