Community Planning

Like many inner city neighbourhoods Rosemont is subject to development pressures. Actual and proposed new developments have included:

  • Renovations to existing homes by homeowners.
  • Tear-downs and new builds by homeowners.
  • Tear-downs and new builds by developers.
  • Change of use of commercial sites.
  • Cell phone towers.
  • Subdividing one big lot into smaller lots.

As the city grows around us increased vehicle traffic is also a concern.

Part of the RCA's mission is to respond to urban planning and development issues affecting Rosemont. Our goal is to maintain the qualities of the community that have drawn our residents to make Rosemont their home. The RCA has a Development Committee composed of community members that looks after planning and development issues.

Development activities can be tracked, and comments on proposed developments can be made through this interactive map.

The development process is a complicated one. It is described in detail in A Community Guide to the Planning Process.

If you are a Rosemont resident affected by a proposed development you can contact the RCA Development Committee, or contact the city using the interactive map, using the info on the blue sign posted at the site or by calling 311. Often a good starting point is to chat with the neighbours who are proposing a new development.

Developers working to ensure that their proposed development fits with the context of the community are also welcome to contact us.
