District Planning - Phase 3: Gather Input and Edit Draft Plans (Fall 2023)

About the Project

District Planning is about changing the way Edmonton plans and supports development and growth to move us closer to The City Plan’s vision for a more connected, prosperous, healthy and climate-resilient city of 2 million people.

Deliberate change is required. The District Planning project will support one of The City Plan’s transformative priorities of making Edmonton a Community of Communities where residents can meet most of their daily needs within a 15-minute walk, roll or transit trip from their homes. The District Planning project is not about restricting movement, monitoring people or tracking an individual’s carbon emissions.

District Policy and Plans

The District Planning project is developing 2 new planning tools to guide how 15 districts (collections of neighbourhoods) will redevelop and change as Edmonton reaches its next population milestone of 1.25 million people:

  • District Policy: provides policies that apply across all districts and other planning directions like urban design, energy transition and climate adaptation.
  • 15 district plans: contain district-specific context, area-specific policies and maps showing how the citywide District Policy directions are applied in a particular district

District plans will guide the long-term physical change of Edmonton’s neighbourhoods. Your district plan will say where taller and denser buildings should go and where the City needs to invest to support growth.

Geographic Plans Proposed to Keep, Change or Retire

As part of drafting district plans, the project team has reviewed existing strategies and geographic plans to understand if they conflict with The City Plan or if they are still needed to guide development. Based on this review, and informed by feedback we received in previous phases of engagement, the project team is recommending geographic plans to keep, change or retire.

Future Work Priorities

District plans will continue to change as future planning work happens across Edmonton. The district plans today will set the foundation for planning and engagement work in the future. More planning direction will be required in order to achieve the phased targets in The City Plan.

Through public and internal engagement, the District Planning project is also identifying areas for future work the City should undertake following the project’s completion. Future work can include ideas such as incorporating climate adaptation and energy transition strategies into district plans or identifying more heritage and cultural places in a district

This list of prioritized future work opportunities will be presented to City Council in 2024.


How to Get Involved

In this phase of engagement, we want to know more about your thoughts on the revised draft district plans and changes to the List of Geographic Proposed to Keep, Change or Retire. Your input will be used to help the City finalize the draft district plans, list of geographic plans proposed to keep, change or repeal and identify areas for future work opportunities to follow after the district plan adoption (pending City Council approval).

Share your thoughts from October 23 until December 3 using the tools below.
