In 2004, the areas of Tower Trails and Rolling Range Estates were annexed by The Town of Cochrane for future urban growth. Prior to urban redevelopment proceeding on these lands, an urban overlay plan is required for the existing large country residential lots in the area, which will create a vision for the area and minimize any unplanned future development.
Canopy Lands is pursuing an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) that will guide the future redevelopment of the area, in alignment with the Town of Cochrane’s vision and plans for growth.
ABOUT CANOPY LANDS

Canopy partners with land and property owners to provide profitable and market viable turnkey real estate solutions. It’s mission is to meet the needs and goals of its clients, investors and landowner partners through its professional and responsive management team.
WHY ARE WE PLANNING NOW?
By developing a “big picture” comprehensive redevelopment strategy for the lands, the landowners (led by Canopy Lands) will ensure a direction of redevelopment that:
Establishes a collective vision for the land
Avoids uncoordinated, fragmented development
Ensures alignment with the Town’s vision and principles
Facilitates seamless integration of future development into the greater community of Cochrane
Meets the needs of a growing and changing Town through considerations such as amenities, transportation options and open space
Provides housing types that are not presently available elsewhere in Cochrane
WHAT IS AN AREA REDEVELOPMENT PLAN (ARP)?
In addition to working with the other landowners within the ARP boundaries, we are committed to engaging the public and providing regular updates throughout the ARP process. Check in regularly to learn about upcoming engagement opportunities and view What We Heard reports from previous events.
PROJECT UPDATE | May 2023
The ARP has been resubmitted to the Town of Cochrane, and as we enter the final stages of the planning process, we would like to share the updated Rolling Trails ARP presentation.
Check out the video linked below to learn what is happening with the Rolling Trails ARP and how we are addressing what is missing in Cochrane.
The project will be presented by Town Administration at the Committee of the Whole meeting on June 5, 2023. Committee of the Whole meetings are open to the public and are held in Council Chambers at the Cochrane RancheHouse.
The Committee of the Whole is not a Public Hearing. It is an opportunity for the Town Administration to provide an update on the project, answer questions and receive feedback from Council prior to the Public Hearing process.
On March 15, 2022 Canopy Lands hosted its second Open House to share information and collect comments on the revised ARP.
Approximately 35 people attended the event. An online survey was also available from March 16-31. 87 surveys were completed.
