The City is working to reactivate the stakeholder-based Paskapoo Slopes Joint Advisory Committee, in response to concerns that stakeholders are not being adequately consulted on the developments proposed for the site. See item 4.12 PASKAPOO SLOPES JOINT ADVISORY COMMITTEE PROCESS, PUD2013-0632, on the September 6, 2013 PUD agenda. http://agendaminutes.calgary.ca/sirepub ... ype=AGENDA

The Paskapoo Slopes area has some incredible archeological resources, as recently noted by archeologist Brian Vivian at the Heritage Roundtable in spring 2013. Here is a link to the City's heritage inventory entry on Paskapoo Slopes: http://www.calgary.ca/PDA/LUPP/Pages/He ... urceId=243. And here is a link to the wikipedia entry on Paskapoo Slopes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paskapoo_Slopes.

Development on the slopes is often controversial, often for environmental reasons. There was controversy with the approval of housing on the slopes in spring 2013:

This has prompted the discussion about reactivating the Paskapoo Slopes committee
