The River Valley Planning Modernization Project will renew our strategic planning, processes, and regulatory tools for the River Valley and Ravine System.

Phase 3 engagement is coming up in June! Check out upcoming engagement opportunities, and sign up for the project newsletter to be notified when engagement launches.

Edmonton’s City Plan, approved by City Council in 2020, describes the North Saskatchewan River Valley and Ravine System as “the most important feature of our city.” It is a vital ecological corridor, a valued recreation destination, a place of incredible cultural significance and a draw for visitors throughout the region.

The question at the heart of the project is this: How will we ensure that the River Valley, the backbone of our open space network, remains vibrant and ecologically resilient as the city grows?
