Area redevelopment plan is an urban planning designation created by
municipalities in Alberta, Canada for the
purposes of facilitating development in specific geographic
ARPs differ from Area structure plans in that they
apply to areas of a municipality that have already been developed.
In practice, ARPs are used to guide how an existing built-up area
or neighbourhood should develop in the future. Community
representatives are often invited by municipal planners to
contribute to ARPs. ARPs tend to be created for inner-city areas
that are currently redeveloping or are soon to redevelop.
The following excerpt from the Municipal Government Act Revised
Statutes of Alberta 2000 Chapter M-26 describes the intent and
purpose of ARPs.
