Planning + Development

The Marda Loop Communities Association Planning and Development Committee is a group of community volunteers who provide advice, background information, community context, and feedback to the City of Calgary, the MLCA Board, and applicants on development in our neighbourhood.

The Planning and Development Committee has no formal jurisdiction or authority in planning matters and therefore, cannot reject or approve applications. We provide a bridge for communication, advice, context for all stakeholders.

Community Residents wishing to submit individual comments on developments can view and submit using the City of Calgary development map tool:
