Phase 1: Groundwork - Complete
Three future cities with very different land uses and transportation options were created. The 3 distinct cities were used to see how changes to population, employment and transportation would change how the city grew.
Phase 2: City Move/Policy Shifts - Complete
A number of technical studies were initiated on how growth and mobility occurs in the city. These technical studies informed how each evaluation city and the preferred land use concept changed as the city grew.
Phase 3: Framing the Plan - Complete
Using the technical studies, different land uses and transportation options, each of the evaluation cities displayed different learnings.
2019 - 2020
Phase 4: Building up
The technical studies, combined with the data from the modelling, professional judgment and engagement, helped to develop a preferred land use concept with specific desired outcomes for a future city of 2 million people.
Phase 5: Plan Approval
A draft City Plan will be brought before Urban Planning Committee in March 2020 and is scheduled for public hearing in spring 2020. The City Plan will be reviewed by the Edmonton Metropolitan Regional Board for alignment with the 2018 Growth Plan.
