Rolling Trails
Area Redevelopment Plan

The Rolling Trails Area Redevelopment Plan has been approved by the Town of Cochrane. Click to watch the ARP presentation below.

Canopy Lands is working on the first Neighbourhood Plan for Rolling Trails.


In 2004, the communities 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, the approval of an Area Redevelopment Plan was required for the existing large country residential lots in the area to create a vision for the area and minimize any unplanned future development.

On June 10, 2024, the Town of Cochrane approved the Area Redevelopment Plan for Rolling Trails. Canopy Lands is now working to create a Neighbourhood Plan that aligns with the Town’s vision and plans for growth.

Canopy Lands is a real estate asset management and development firm, created by industry leaders Schickedanz West and Tulum Development. Schickedanz West’s many decades of property development experience has resulted in hundreds of projects across North America, while Tulum has developed more than 5,000 acres in greater Calgary. Combined, the team brings 71+ years, of direct industry expertise.

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.



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

Provides certainty

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



A Neighbourhood Plan is designed to provide the framework for the development of a neighbourhood. It will define the layout of the neighbourhood, the placement of parks or green spaces, and transportation and servicing needs. Refining the NP is an iterative process. Canopy Lands is working to ensure the NP will compliment the Town of Cochrane’s vision.

On June 10, 2024, the Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) was scheduled for third reading by the Town’s council. As a result, the Town of Cochrane has approved the ARP. With the approval of the ARP, Canopy Lands has begun its first Neighbourhood Plan for Rolling Trails.
