For the Love of Winter: Strategy for Transforming Edmonton into a World-Leading Winter City is a visionary document. The strategy will help us make our city more livable, more inviting and more fun during the winter months.
For the Love of Winter was developed by Edmontonians, for Edmontonians, and endorsed by Edmonton City Council.
Edmontonians contributed hundreds of ideas to help us embrace winter including: river valley warming huts, free skate and ski rentals, outdoor patios with fire pits and heaters, and snow asclearing techniques to makes walking and biking easier.
The next step is developing the WinterCity Implementation Plan, which will be done jointly by the City of Edmonton and a volunteer Advisory Council.
