Environmental Reviews

The site environmental reviews can be viewed in the November 2, 2016, Urban Planning Committee meeting minutes.  

  • The proposed Whitemud Park site was brought back to the Urban Planning Committee on March 1, 2017. Council requested that Administration select an alternate site upstream from Whitemud Creek.  This work is ongoing.
  • Due to ongoing construction of the Walterdale Bridge, the potential environmental impacts of the Rossdale dock could not be assessed at this time.  A complete environmental screening for this dock will take place at a later date. 

The boat docks and launches budget is $2 million and is being funded by the River Valley Alliance, the provincial and federal governments, and the City of Edmonton.
