The River Valley Planning Modernization Project will renew our strategic planning, processes, and regulatory tools for the River Valley and Ravine System.
Procedures and Standards Guide
The Breathe Procedures and Standards Guide will review and revisit the more detailed aspects of open space planning, design and management, which includes acquisition, site configuration and street frontage. This guide will require further research and engagement and will be in development into 2018.
The strategy will guide future planning to ensure all neighbourhoods are supported by high-quality, accessible, connected open spaces.

Open Space Policy
Edmonton’s Open Space Policy (C594), approved by City Council in August 2017 along with the Breathe Strategy, recognizes Edmonton’s green network as a living system of interconnected public parks and open spaces, which deliver a broad range of services and community benefits.
The Open Space Policy signals a new direction for open space network planning that supports multi-functionality, recognizes open spaces as part of a connected landscape, and values public land as an important resource that must be thought of holistically.
