Area redevelopment plan


Area redevelopment plan

An Area redevelopment plan is an urban planning designation created by municipalities in Alberta, Canada for the purposes of facilitating development in specific geographic areas. ARPs differ from Area structure plans in that they apply to areas of a municipality that have already been developed. In practice, ARPs are used to guide how an existing built-up area or neighbourhood should develop in the future. Community representatives are often invited by municipal planners to contribute to ARPs. ARPs tend to be created for inner-city areas that are currently redeveloping or are soon to redevelop.

The following excerpt from the Municipal Government Act Revised Statutes of Alberta 2000 Chapter M-26 [ [http://www.qp.gov.ab.ca/documents/Acts/M26.cfm?frm_isbn=0779748638 Queen's Printer] ] describes the intent and purpose of ARPs.
