Environmental Impact Screening Assessment

The City is making slight adjustments to plans for the Valley Line LRT in the river valley in response to stakeholder concerns identified during the preliminary design process. As required by Bylaw 7188 (the North Saskatchewan Area Redevelopment Plan), the Environmental Impact Screening Assessment and Site Location Study accepted by City Council in September 2013 are being updated to reflect these changes.
