40 acre (16 ha) portion of The New DevelopmentThe Fused Grid model for planning new neighbourhoods will soon be part of Calgary’s map. City Council approved unanimously the Saddleton (64 ha) development plan on April 14, 2008 with one Alderman saying “..he was pleased to see the Fused Grid concept come to fruition.” Since 2003, CMHC has researched, developed and promoted the Fused Grid option for laying out subdivisions for its many benefits for homebuyers, municipalities, developers and the environment.

This approval will please all those who were have worked hard to promote it and will add confidence to those who are considering its application. It is no longer simply a theoretical construct it is a neighbourhood plan heading for construction.
