The City of Edmonton's 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.
The last chapter of the City's multi-phase public engagement on the draft district plans will feature in-person drop-in public engagement sessions, including:
Thursday, November 30: 5 to 8 p.m. at Queen Alexandra Community League Hall (10425 University Avenue)
Stop by to speak with staff from the District Planning Project for an in-person session to learn more about the draft district plans, what it means for your neighbourhood, ask your questions and to share your thoughts.
More info here (registration is NOT required).
Other engagement session dates and times are listed at https://engaged.edmonton.ca/districtplanning, along with important documents around the City Plan process.
McKernan would become part of the Scona District Plan. As part of this change, the city is recommending that the McKernan-Belgravia Station Area Redevelopment Plan be repealed.
