The City of Edmonton is proposing to replace Edmonton’s Zoning Bylaw—the city’s “rulebook” for development. Zoning determines what can be built where – and it impacts us all. See our previous post for more details on the proposed bylaw.
The last stage of public engagement on the zoning bylaw changes will be on October 16th, 2023. After this public hearing, the bylaw will go to a vote, and if approved, the bylaw will go into effect as of January 1, 2024.
The Highlands Community League Board has been hearing from all sides of this issue, and because of this, we are not officially advocating for or against the bylaw. That said, we think it is important to share what we are hearing from our community. Below are some links that may be of interest:
