The City of Edmonton is proposing to annex a 16 hectare (40 acre) parcel including 66th Street that are in Sturgeon County. On July 8, 2014, Sturgeon County Council authorized their Administration to initiate the annexation process with the City of Edmonton.

Edmonton City Council authorized their Administration to proceed with the application to annex land from Sturgeon County on September 23, 2014. The application includes about 16 hectares (40 acres) of land north of the Anthony Henday Drive and 66 Street interchange. This annexation will shift the municipal boundary so that 66 Street and the right-of-way are located within the City of Edmonton boundary.

Background

With the construction of the northwest leg of Anthony Henday Drive, an interchange was constructed that connected to 66 Street along with a stretch of 66 Street linking Anthony Henday Drive and 195 Avenue. This section of 66 Street provides access to the Edmonton Energy and Technology Park. This roadway is located within the boundaries of Sturgeon County and was owned by the Province until the City finalized the purchase in November 2017.

In addition to the 66 Street roadway, the annexation would include an undeveloped triangle-shaped piece of land east of 66 Street and northwest of the existing municipal boundary. The small piece of land cannot be developed due to restrictions from the Department of National Defence, which limits the height of any structure in this location. As owners of 66 Street, the City of Edmonton already assumes the operation and maintenance of 66 Street.
