DEVELOPMENT

New Developments

 

Even though the Coach Hill Patterson Heights community is relatively well established, there are still a number of developments occurring both within and around our community. We try to provide the most up to date information about these developments so our residents are up to date on what is happening. We also encourage you to provide your input on these developments to ensure our Councillor and The City of Calgary is aware of our concerns and/or support for the projects.

 

For any more information about these topics please contact either the Director of Expansion and Development at development@chph.ca or the President at president@chph.ca.  Emails are sent out to members informing them of up coming open houses held by developers. We only contact our members through emails. To make sure you are kept up to date with current developments please add your active email address to your file. If you are not a CHPH Community Association member yet, please consider joining.

Coach Hill Fields Irrigation

The City has initiated a project to provide irrigation to the existing sports fields, but not irrigate the natural area to the east or the area in the northwest corner (where the Outdoor Activity Hub will go). In addition to the irrigation, they are installing our rink water service and quick couplers for the planned community garden. The construction fencing up will be up until September and will be around most of the park, but not the natural area, or a corner in the NW and a strip along the west of the park. There could also be some temporary shut down of part of the back lane for ENMAX to run electrical and for the irrigation contractor to join to the parks water service. This project is a Municipal Stimulus Program (MSP) project, so must be completed in 2021

Outdoor Activity Hub

We are in the beginning stages of developing the current Adopt-a-Rink site into a more permanent year-round outdoor recreation facility. For more information on this project please visit the Outdoor Activity Hub page of our website.

High School Redesignation 

In late June 2021, the Calgary Board of Education announced that based on feedback received from stakeholders, and taking into account CBE’s values and planning principles, the finalized plan for High School Resignation is the same plan that was shared on June 1, 2021. 

This means, despite strenuous objections from the community, students from Coach Hill and Patterson Heights attending the Regular Program will go to Bowness High School rather than Ernest Manning High School. EMHS was previously our high school for Coach Hill and Patterson Heights prior to the 2020-2021 school year, but was over capacity so the decision was made to move our communities out.

More information about the CBE high school engagement and the CHPH redesignation can be found here.

Paskapoo Slopes / Trinity Hills / Medicine Hill 

The Paskapoo Slopes is the escarpment to the west and northwest of Patterson Heights, which extends 4 km along Highway 1 to COP. They are a significant environmental feature that was formed during the Pleistocene Epoch by the action and movement of Glacial Lake Calgary. 

The 260-acre area was sold to a commercial property developer, Trinity Development Group, and In 2015 City Council approved the application to develop approximately 100 acres of land on the Paskapoo Slopes into a mixed-use site with retail, office and residential units to be called Medicine Hill. For more information on the project please visit the Trinity Hills website

This project is now in public engagement. Give your input here:  trinityhills.ca/vision/public-engagement

Past/Historical Developments

 

Hart House

 

The Crandell-Hart House is a historical residence located in our community. Once owned by Stu Hart, it was home to his extensive family made world famous for their accomplishments in professional wrestling. While no longer under ownership of the Harts, the mansion continues to be referred to as the Hart House. The 5,600-square-foot home, sits on 2.17 acres of land and was built in 1902 by businessman Edward Crandell. It was converted into the Soldiers' Children's Home for Orphans in 1920 and then bought by Judge Henry Stuart Patterson from the Crandells. Sold to Stu Hart in 1951 for $25,000, the three story brick house has had many famous professional wrestlers as well as political and entertainment figures pass through its doors. In its Hart-owned state, it featured twenty-two rooms, four fireplaces, five chandeliers from Edmonton's historic McDonald Hotel, two porches, a view of downtown Calgary, and a coach house behind the main house. Members of the professional wrestling community around the world hold a great deal of appreciation and respect for the Hart House and the legacy it holds. (Source: www.wikipedia.org)

2018- SB2016-0219 The City of Calgary approved the Change of Use to Bare Land Condominium for 10 units including the existing Hart House.

Permanent Closure of 10th & 11th Avenue access between Coach Hill & West Springs communities

When the community of Coach Hill was first built, it was on the City limits.  The 10th & 11th Avenue roads were acreage roads leading out from the community.  When West Springs sprouted, to avoid traffic using those roads as a shortcut to connect to Old Banff Coach Road, our community association worked with the City to close access on 10th Avenue at the Coach Hill Road end, and on 11th Avenue at the 73th Street end. 

The Coach Hill Cares Committee has worked tirelessly to ensure that the road closures stay in place, and also requested the park-like setting on the 10th Avenue bike path at Coach Hill Road.  They have also worked to with the City on the change to the 11th Avenue closure which has now relocated from 73th Street to Coach Ridge Road end due to the increase in development on the West Spring side of the road. 

We have been assured from the City that the increase in density coming to 11th Avenue West  Springs side, will not open up the route which is a relief to Coach Hill residents that live nearby.

 

Former CHPH Community Association Building

The CHPH Community Association has not operated the building located at 60 Patterson Blvd. SW since 2005. 

 

In September of 2005, the building came under the operational control of Badminton Alberta. Badminton Alberta together with the support of the Badminton Alberta Foundation, Badminton Calgary and other support agencies.

 

Please note the rink behind this building is not maintained and is not available for use by the community as a skating/hockey rink, nor is it open for public use during the summer.
