Hello BetterInfill—

Here are three items we urge you to check, to understand why Edmonton’s current city council should rethink its commitment to district plans, zoning bylaw changes, and the increasingly problematic city plan.

1. A wonderful article by renowned Edmonton writer Ed Struzik: https://thetyee.ca/Analysis/2024/07/04/What-Happened-Push-Urban-Green-Spaces/?utm_source=national&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=040724&utm_term=builder

2. A highly informative video by CBC’s Andrew Chang about Canada’s housing crisis: https://thetyee.ca/Analysis/2024/07/04/What-Happened-Push-Urban-Green-Spaces/?utm_source=national&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=040724&utm_term=builder

3. A terrific Globe and Mail article: https://marksw.blog.yorku.ca/2024/06/19/what-the-toronto-condo-market-downturn-says-about-ontarios-experiment-with-giving-developers-control-over-urban-planning/

Changes to bylaws give huge flexibility to infill developers and take away most opportunities for you to appeal projects, even on your own block.

This means your new district plan could allow for a mid-rise or high-rise building to be built next door.

Imagine the uncertainty of not knowing what could be built beside you.
