Edmonton Design Committee
The Edmonton Design Committee (EDC) reviews presentations from both civic departments and the public in regards to major developmental applications, direct control rezoning applications, and public projects city-wide with a pre-determined geographical area.
Formed and passed by City Council on July 19, 2005, the EDC meets in public, and is designed to review submissions in order to provide advice to City Development Planners. Other elements of the planning process, such as opportunities to appeal development permits and presentations to City Council at public hearings, continue unchanged.
The selection of members, organizational structure, and mandate of the EDC are set out in the Edmonton Design Committee Bylaw 14054. The EDC uses Principles of Urban Design while reviewing projects in hopes to encourage a high-level of Urban Design. The regulations governing zoning and development are outlined in the Zoning Bylaw 12800 and the Subdivision Authority Bylaw.
