The City Plan charts how we will build our future city to a population of two million people. It describes the choices we will make about how we build and move around the city. It is a plan for how, together, we will adapt, prosper and succeed as we grow from a big small city to a small big city.  
Issue #3 - November 8, 2018

Urban Planning Committee
Administration is presenting the guiding values and city building outcomes (Item 6.1) that have been developed with your input to Urban Planning Committee on November 13. The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. and The City Plan report is the first item on the schedule. The values and outcomes were developed using engagement data from Vision 2050 and from 12 public engagement sessions held in September and October. The report can be found here.

New Engagement Dates
Engagement for Phase III of the project has started. The project team is hosting five public workshops to dig deeper into what choices we might need to make as we plan for a city of two million people within our existing boundary. This engagement will inform our next report to Urban Planning Committee in February 2019. Sign up for these sessions here

Town Hall with Ryan Jespersen and Kalen Anderson
Kalen Anderson, director of The City Plan joined Ryan Jespersen on October 30 as part of an Engage Edmonton panel on CHED radio. Among other discussions, she mused about the city plans Edmonton developed in the past and which was her favourite - take a listen to find out which year comes out on top.

World Town Planning Day
Tonight (November 8), Kalen Anderson will be joining Ian O'Donnell at Metro Cinema for a panel discussion after the screening of "Whose City?", a movie about the transformation of Berlin. No doubt she will be testing the crowd to see what transformational moves Edmonton might make as we grow to a city of two million. 


The Question

What choices do we need to
make to be a healthy, urban,
and climate resilient city
of two million people
that supports a
prosperous region?
Presenting at Urban Planning Committee on November 13 is the official wrap-up of Phase II of the Project. As we start work and engagement on Phase III, our focus will be on the development of 'City Moves.' These will be presented to Urban Planning Committee in February 2019.

City Moves = A bold, visionary and foundational direction to advance Council's four goals. They will be transformational, rooted in our built environment and responsive to changing social conditions, both current and future.

In addition to our work with stakeholders and the public, The City Plan requires technical studies, policy development and modelling. More on what this work is, and how it will advance can be found here

City of Edmonton


We have lots to talk about and learn from you. There are many engagement sessions being hosted across the city, and we would love for you to come see us.

If we look at what Edmonton was like 30 years ago, it might help us to imagine the amount of change we can expect in the next 30 years. Use your imagination, talk to your kids, friends, family and neighbours; what do others think about Edmonton's future? There will be conversation guides published soon to help start a conversation. Stay tuned.

Go ahead, hit forward and send this newsletter on to others , we don't mind; in fact we'd love it. The more people we get talking about our city, the better our future will be.

Follow us on social media and use the hashtag #edmontonsfutureis to be part of the conversation.

*A 3-D model of our Future Edmonton produced at The City Plan Core Stakeholder Workshop on November 5. Thank you Edmonton for your input to date and for what you will share with us at future engagement sessions.



Over the last 20 years the total number of trips (on foot, car or transit) made by Edmonton residents increased by approximately 40% to 3.14 million trips per weekday.


Combined car driver and passenger mode share still dominates at 77.6% of all those daily trips(stats as of 2015).
