Joyal Park in Jensen Lake


About the Project:

The City of St. Albert is proposing to amend the Land Use Bylaw 9/2005, Schedule A, by redistricting Joyal Park in Jensen Lakes neighbourhood. Please see the proposed redistricting map below.

Joyal Park is located in the southeast portion of the Jensen Lakes neighbourhood. Joyal Park has an area of 2.59 hectares. Joyal Park and the school sites for Joseph M. Demko School and Sister Alphonse School are currently districted Public and Private Service (PS). As Joyal Park is a park for the public, the proposal is to district the land to Public Park (P). The proposed redistricting separates the Land Use Bylaw districts for the school and park sites. The park and school sites are developed and operational since 2019. No changes to the park or school sites are being proposed through this redistricting. Access to the proposed redistricting area will continue from Joyal Way to the north and south of the park site.

The proposed redistricting is consistent with the proposed Jensen Lakes Area Structure Plan Jensen Lakes Area Structure Plan, which shows the area designated as a Park. The Municipal Development Plan shows the area as Neighbourhoods, which is also consistent with the proposed redistricting.

Public Hearing

The tentative public hearing date is August 15, 2022. The public hearing date will be advertised in the St. Albert Gazette newspaper under Citylights prior to the public hearing and notification will be sent to property owners within a 100-metre radius advising of the public hearing. Any comments about the proposed redistricting you wish to provide by June 6, 2022 will be taken into consideration when staff prepares the agenda report for City Council.

Please be advised that comments you submit, either orally or in writing, may be recorded and made public, subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

    Please fix the hyperlink to the Jensen Lakes Area Structure Plan. Also, will this affect the residents on Juneau Way financially with the redistricting of Joyal Park - or anyone at all. Thank you.

    Tax assessments are based on market value. There is no evidence of change in market value of surrounding properties due to the proposed redistricting.

    The hyperlink to the Jensen Lakes Area Structure Plan has been updated.

    If the park distinction is changed. Would the new designation make it easier to re-zone and develop into housing ?

    Daniel W asked 4 months ago

    The proposed re-districting will separate the public park from the school sites for the intended public park use. The Public Park designation allows this site to be park/recreational facility type of use for the public. Residential or other types of uses are not permitted in the Public Park district.
