The City of Edmonton was recently issued an Environmental Public Health Order by Alberta Health Services relating to a Greenbelt area, the narrow parcel of land north of Yellowhead Trail and west of Victoria Trail. The Order directed the City to enclose the Greenbelt with precautionary fencing and signage by April 15, 2018 that will prevent entry into the Greenbelt until further notice. Local residents were issued a letter notifying them of the fence installation and area restriction.
Throughout the city, a number of planning applications are underway at any given time. These applications are primarily for land development, which includes rezonings and plan amendments.
