Bringing People Together and Transforming Our City

Transforming Edmonton’s urban form requires attention to specific parts of the city that have the most potential for change. Key areas of change include LRT station areas and other destinations – nodes – and streets with frequent transit service and appropriate urban form – corridors. Nodes and Corridors planning will focus the City’s redevelopment efforts on these strategic areas, which represents an evolution of land planning for Edmonton.

Transit Oriented Development

Transit Oriented Development (TOD) principles integrate transportation, land use and development across the city. These principles concentrate housing, shopping and employment along a network of walkable and bikeable streets within a five minute walk in any direction of a high quality transit service. This approach to planning supports growth in older neighbourhoods by guiding high density infill redevelopment. The TOD planning perspective helps create a well designed and livable city, influenced by growth and change.

How TOD can Benefit Residents

  • More transportation choices
  • Fewer and shorter auto trips
  • Lower personal transportation costs
  • Easy access to daily needs
  • Improved health through increased physical activity

How TOD can Transform the City

  • Increased transit ridership and revenue
  • More efficient use of infrastructure like LRT, sewers and other services
  • Reduced air pollution and energy use
  • Revitalization of neighbourhoods

The Way We Move

Transportation planning improves travel options, safety and convenience.

The Way We Grow

Municipal development increases density and community vibrancy.
