What choices do we need to make to be a healthy, urban, and climate resilient city of two million people that supports a prosperous region?

The City Plan charts out how we will get to a future city, a city that has the benefits we enjoy today with new opportunities for the future. The City Plan is about our spaces and places and how we move around the city. It is about our community and what we need to do together to grow, adapt and succeed.

  • What kind of city will Edmonton be in the future?
  • What about a future city could make you feel more connected to your friends and family?
  • What is Edmonton’s city story?

The City Plan will replace The Ways documents, including the Municipal Development Plan and Transportation Master Plan.

Developing the City Plan

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.
