View visual renderings of the approved MNO regulations which come into effect on September 1, 2017.
On May 29, 2017, City Council approved changes to Mature Neighbourhood Overlay (MNO) Regulations. The regulations will be effective on September 1, 2017. A summary of changes is listed in the MNO Fact Sheet document.
The Mature Neighbourhood Overlay applies to Edmonton's mature neighbourhoods. Created in 2001, the MNO is a part of the Zoning Bylaw that requires development that better suits older communities with tree-lined streets.
As part of the Mature Neighbourhood Overlay Review, City staff have made changes to MNO regulations after holding multiple public consultation events with residents, Community Leagues, and the development industry. Staff received over 7,800 responses and submissions from consultation events!
Mature Neighbourhood Overlay Next Steps
City staff will promote the new Mature Neighbourhood Overlay regulations before they go into effect on September 1, 2017.
Any development applications that are still active (not yet approved) when the September 1, 2017 effectiveness date arrives will need to comply with the new MNO regulations.
After July 7, 2017 all development permit applications will be reviewed on the basis of the new Overlay regulations.
