It is located within the Big Lake area[8] and was originally considered Neighbourhood 3 within the Big Lake Area Structure Plan (ASP).[9] It was officially named Hawks Ridge on September 21, 2010.[10]

Hawks Ridge is bounded on the west by 231 Street, north by Big Lake, east by Winterburn Road (215 Street), and south by future Big Lake Neighbourhood 5.[6][9]

A step toward development of the neighbourhood was met with some controversy when the ward councillor for the area voted against approving the first rezoning within the neighbourhood in July 2011. Councillor Linda Sloan opposed the rezoning based on the lack of servicing and infrastructure for the neighbourhood. The rezoning was approved by a vote of 11 to 1.[11]
