Blatchford is part of Edmonton’s plans for growth, with smarter land use, better transportation and climate resilient infrastructure.

Edmonton is home to a million people, and it’s getting ready to welcome the next million. 

Imagining how Edmonton will grow to two million people is important for thinking about priorities and strategies. As new neighbours move here from across the province, the country and the globe, Blatchford will be ready to be part of that future.

In 2018, the City of Edmonton began to develop a comprehensive vision to prepare for the coming decades. It involved more than 10,000 Edmontonians through open houses, stakeholder consultation, technical studies and policy studies. 

The City Plan outlines strategic direction for transportation, land use, environmental and social planning and economic development. It charts the course of Edmonton’s growth and touches on most aspects of life in this city.
