Why is Infill Important?

Edmonton is evolving. Our people, streets, and businesses are changing. We’re becoming more aware of the way our city is built and more excited about the kind of city we want to become. It’s an energy every Edmontonian can feel. Part of this evolution is infill. It’s not new, but it’s a growing trend in our city. Whether you’re a builder, a home buyer, or a resident of a neighbourhood where infill is popping up, you’ll find information here about how the City of Edmonton is working to build balanced communities.
