Pre-Submission Process 

In 2018, the City of Edmonton and the Government of Alberta started work on a neighbourhood plan for a Heritage Valley Neighbourhood #14. The neighbourhood plan will inform the development of a new hospital and health campus, announced by the Government of Alberta in March 2017, and identify the alignment of the Capital Line South LRT extension and station location within the neighbourhood.

The time frame for hospital construction is dependent on provincial funding.

Public Engagement

Before submitting the application, a drop-in public engagement session, which drew 83 attendees,  was held on November 28, 2018 at the Ellerslie Rugby Park.

An online survey was conducted to seek public feedback on the healthy community vision for the neighbourhood plan. The survey  was available on the City’s website and sent to interested Insight Community members. It was open from November 28 to December 16, 2018.  There were 399 responses. 

The Pre-submission What We Heard Report summarizes participants feedback and outlines how this feedback will be incorporated into the draft neighbourhood plan.

Plan Details

Plan Area

The neighbourhood is located north of the approved Heritage Valley Town Centre, south of Ellerslie Road and west of 127 Street SW.

The 320 acre site is owned by the Government of Alberta, and was previously leased by the University of Alberta for crop research. It is currently identified as a Special Study Area under the Heritage Valley Servicing Concept Design Brief, which outlines the basic servicing and infrastructure requirements for the area.

The plan boundary will include the east portion of the Graydon Hill Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan.

Development of the Plan (NASP)

The proposed plan will allow for the zoning, subdivision, and future development of the area.

It will outline:

  • Future land uses
  • Proposed population densities
  • The location of the new hospital and health campus 
  • The location of major roads, utilities and the future LRT station
  • Future parks space and school sites

The NASP will comply with the Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan Terms of Reference.
