The Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative consists of 4 projects

Project Components

Creating a New Zoning Bylaw
Writing a New Zoning Bylaw

Creating a new Zoning Bylaw is a rare opportunity to rethink what we regulate in terms of land development and whether we are regulating the right things.

Edmontonians are invited to provide feedback on proposed approaches to zones, uses and residential areas through a series of workbooks and workshops. Visit to participate.

Rezoning land to align with the new Zoning Bylaw

The rezoning project will help realize the vision of the new Zoning Bylaw by applying new zones to all properties in Edmonton.

Currently, the City is creating a rezoning framework to provide stakeholders and Edmontonians with a degree of transparency and predictability throughout the rezoning process.

Technology Improvement
Providing technology to manage the new Zoning Bylaw, and improving the online customer experience for planning and development services.

Technology allows applicants to access the Zoning Bylaw and better understand how its regulations affect their property and will support a streamlined development process. The technology project helps improve the online customer experience for planning and development services.

Project Implementation
Ensuring a smooth transition to the new Zoning Bylaw and technology through thoughtful Implementation.

The Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative is one of the more significant actions needed to implement The City Plan. The Zoning Bylaw Renewal requires integration with several other City initiatives to enable efficient city building and support the transformational change envisioned in The City Plan.
