How We Got Here

The Infill Roadmap is the City’s work plan to support more and better infill in our city. It includes 25 actions that will help to achieve the City of Edmonton’s strategic outcomes and contribute to a city that is more livable, resilient, and financially and environmentally sustainable. Through the 25 actions in the Infill Roadmap, Edmonton will create new opportunities and better outcomes for infill development.

About Infill Roadmap 2018

The Infill Roadmap 2018 is the product of the Evolving Infill project, and was developed through a robust discussion about the need for diverse housing options in our core and mature neighbourhoods. These efforts led to the adoption of the Infill Roadmap by Urban Planning Committee in July, 2018, and approval of funding in November, 2018.

While the Infill Roadmap 2014 focused on low density infill, the 2018 Infill Roadmap focuses on “missing middle” housing forms, such as triplexes, row housing and low and mid rise apartments. These housing forms are considered “missing” as they are largely absent from urban streetscape in Canada, including in Edmonton.

Work on the 25 actions of the Infill Roadmap is now underway. View the status of each action. Individual actions will require additional public engagement, and many will require Council approval. Updates on the Infill Roadmap will go to Urban Planning Committee of Council annually. Get involved with engagement and event activities. Learn more about how the Infill Roadmap was created.
