    Agricultural and Rural Zones in Edmonton currently apply to areas that are not necessarily used for agricultural or rural purposes. The new Zoning Bylaw seeks to rezone areas according to their use, so that the Agricultural and Rural zones may be simplified. 

    What is your experience with the Agriculture and Rural zones in Edmonton's current Zoning Bylaw?

    Does the current Zoning Bylaw prevent innovation in these zones? How could they be improved? 

    What should or should not be regulated in Edmonton's new Agricultural and Rural zones?
