(NOTE: The above map offers a quick glance, using the familiar Google Maps interface and City of Calgary data released on July 31, 2018. Some of the dots overlap, making it hard to distinguish different applications at the same address. The City of Calgary also publishes this more detailed map.)


The approved applications, which still have some hurdles to leap and which could be appealed, will be in Beltline, Sunnyside, Mount Pleasant, Signal Hill, Mission, Bridgeland, Coventry Hills, Rundle, East Shepard Industrial, South Calgary and Shawnee Slopes.

Rejected applications are also subject to appeals. 

As of Monday, the city said it had 261 applications to sift through and hoped to get through the stack by Aug. 10.
