District Planning is a multi-year project to build The City Plan’s “community of communities”—small towns in our big city, where people can meet many of their daily needs within 15 minutes from where they live.

Edmonton’s communities are its lifeblood and will continue to provide us with the opportunity to turn our time and attention to things that really matter, like a connection with each other and to the greater good.

District Planning is about changing the way Edmonton plans and supports development and growth and moves us closer to our vision for a more connected, prosperous, healthy and climate-resilient city. It is not about restricting movement, monitoring people or tracking an individual’s carbon emissions.
