The way that buildings, streets and open space are connected is key to the successful creation of a new compact transit community. The Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Policy Guidelines, adopted by City of Calgary Council in 2004, provides strategy policy for development of transit areas. More recently, increasing interest in TOD has created the necessity for station specific plans, including Brentwood Station.

The Brentwood Station Area Redevelopment Plan provides policy to re-urbanize in an established low-density community, which was primarily designed for the automobile. Located strategically along side the University Research Park and the University of Calgary, the Plan will help guide redevelopment into a mixed-use urban village.

Paul Donker, Kevin Barton and Ryan Hall, Planners with Transit Oriented Development in Established Communities with the City of Calgary, will discuss lessons learned from the community and stakeholder process that help drive the development of the new Plan for the Brentwood Station area.
