Find out more about Edmonton’s annexation of land south of its existing boundary to accommodate future growth.

On January 1, 2019, two areas of land from Leduc County and the Town of Beaumont became part of Edmonton. Residents of those areas are now Edmontonians.

Information on the annexation application, timeline and public engagement is available below. Learn more about how the transition affects residents living in the annexed area.

Planning Application Underway

An application has been accepted to repeal the North Major Area Structure Plan (Bylaw 14-04), a Leduc County plan which guided land use in the annexed area.  
Learn more about this proposal and an upcoming public engagement event.

Gravel Road Maintenance

Prolonged rain events cause conditions on gravel roads to deteriorate. 

Following large precipitation events, crews require the roads to be dry before doing any major maintenance work.

The City is inspecting the areas daily to ensure safe passability of the roads, and graders are performing maintenance grading weekly, when conditions allow, on all Annexation roads.

For areas impacted by the spring/summer precipitation, crews are working to perform more extensive repairs, and those are expected to be completed by the end of July.

If you see crews working, please give them room to work.

Getting Ready for Growth

From 2012 to 2014, Edmonton grew by 7.4% or more than 60,000 people. 

To ensure that we have enough land to accommodate growth, the City of Edmonton annexed land south of the boundary.

The annexed area includes 8,260 hectares agreed upon by Leduc County, and 7 hectares for part of the road right of way for 50 Street that was  uncontested from the Town of Beaumont.


The Municipal Government Board held hearings on the application and made a recommendation to the Province. The Province made a decision to approve the annexation on November 27, 2018. The annexation took effect January 1, 2019.

Dust Abatement

The City of Edmonton will not be charging residents in the annexation area for dust suppression, and residents do not need to sign up for this service.

The City will be applying two applications of dust suppressant annually. The first application will be in June and the second application in August. Residents can report any concerns related to dust by calling 311. 

Road Repairs

The City of Edmonton has commenced maintenance activities on Leduc Annexation roads.
