Ep 10: Secondary Suites 101
If you’re a homeowner in Calgary and you want to put a stove in your basement, prepare for a process that’s unheard of in any other major Canadian city.
Calgary remains one of the only municipalities across the country where most property owners who want a secondary suite must plead for a zoning change directly to city council.
On this episode, host Annalise Klingbeil and producer Kerianne Sproule take you into the wild world of secondary suites in Calgary.
We go over the basics, find out exactly what a secondary suite public hearing is like, and speak with a student completing a thesis on the politics and policies of secondary suites in our unusual city.
We also hear directly from our listeners, who have called to weigh in on the topic.
