Infill Story Video: City Initiatives

Posted on July 26th, 2017

Learn about some of the major initiatives the City of Edmonton has undertaken since 2014 to improve the infill construction experience for communities.

Pre-application meetings with development officers allow developers to read through guidelines that highlight processes and requirements and sign an acknowledgement which holds their work to a high standard.

The protection and preservation of mature trees was acknowledged as an area of importance for Edmontonians. To support this, new landscaping requirements were created that  include an incentive to protect mature trees.

 The new Infill Compliance Team and required review of lot grading plans were introduced to ensure that best construction practices are used on infill sites in Edmonton.
