The Way Ahead, Edmonton’s strategic plan, sets out a vision of a more compact, transit oriented and sustainable city, where more people walk, cycle and use transit than they do today.
The Way We Move, Edmonton’s Transportation Master Plan, outlines a vastly expanded LRT network to all areas of the city. More than 40 new LRT stations will be added to the network over the next 30 years.
The Way We Grow, Edmonton’s Municipal Development Plan, directs that guidelines be prepared for land use and design to build higher density and mixed use communities at LRT stations and transit centres. That expansion of the LRT and transit system and an emphasis on a more compact city means the time to plan for TOD is now.
