We Want to Hear from you on Edmonton's NEW Draft Zoning Bylaw!

Edmonton's Zoning Bylaw has undergone its FIRST comprehensive rebuild, rethinking what and why the City regulates land use and development - and Phase 2 of engagement involves hearing from YOU as to how it can be further refined.

Zoning is everywhere in our city. It sets the rules for what types of development can go where and the types of activities that occur there. It's the rulebook of how to build and use land in Edmonton. To better understand the role that zoning plays in the city we're building together, start with this short, animated video.

We also encourage you to check out these videos, specific to the City Plan, and District Planning.

Get Involved

Now that you've been introduced (or re-introduced) to the draft Zoning Bylaw, its role in animating The City Plan, and its connection to other city projects such as District Planning, we invite you to explore the bylaw and share your thoughts. Here's how you can get involved from now until December 18.

Tour the new draft Zoning Bylaw here or by scrolling down. Take your time, or quickly reference the interactive table of contents to find sections of interest. Be sure to comment throughout the document using the guided feedback tool.

Using the new Rezoning Map, get to Know Your Zone by pulling up your residence, local coffee shop or business. Circle back to the draft Zoning Bylaw to understand how it will apply to all your favourite spots.

Register for our online engagement workshops to be integrated with District Planning (limited to 60 participants each).

And visit us in person at the District Planning open houses.

Coming Soon! Book time with a Planner to ask questions about the draft Zoning Bylaw, Rezoning Map, or other zoning matters. You're also welcome to scroll down and have your queries answered in the "Have a Question?" section.

Check out the new forever home of the Zoning Bylaw - where sample draft content has been included to garner feedback on the platform’s usability and ideas as to how it might be improved.
