The City Plan has put the need to simplify our policy landscape into sharper focus. Currently, the City has over 100 geographic plans that vary in complexity, many of which are out of date and have resulted in the following:

  • Less predictability for residents and landowners as existing geographic plan policies become out of date and conflict with higher-order plans like The City Plan
  • Risk of not achieving, or delaying, city-building outcomes because policies become out of date and conflict with The City Plan

The City has reviewed every geographic plan across Edmonton and will recommend which ones can be retired, changed or kept when district plans go to a public hearing (tentatively May 2024).
