Teepee Town Area Redevelopment Plan

What’s Happening

On June 9, 2020, Council approved a new Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP), including allowing for more affordable housing opportunities and amending some of the development regulations such as landscaping, roof style, neighbourhood character, and density requirements.

The scope of the project included:

1. Create a more policy focused and user-friendly Teepee Town ARP.

2. Support the creation of increased housing opportunities.

3. Ensure land in Teepee Town is developed efficiently.

4. Ensure adherence with the Municipal Development Plan. 

Next Steps

The approved ARP will be available on Area Structure & Redevelopment Plans. Resulting changes to the Land Use Bylaw will also be required later this fall, stay tuned for updates.


In consultation with residents in 2005, this plan was created to guide future development within Teepee Town. 

In October of 2019, residents provided feedback on most recent proposed changes at an open house. Results of the feedback can be read here:
