Help establish a new vision for how this important area will evolve over time.

A new planning process will build upon first-generation transit oriented development plans in the area to establish a new vision for the Edmonton Exhibition Lands site and nearby properties.

About the Project

The work will integrate and coordinate with other City projects in the area.

The plan will leverage local revitalization initiatives, such as the Avenue Initiative and Borden Park upgrades, to continue improving liveability for residents, businesses, and visitors while also updating the vision for city-building in the area.

Public Engagement

Public events and online opportunities will allow residents, communities, businesses, and industry representatives to provide input throughout the process.
