Residents can submit online feedback about regulations around dogs, cats, bees, chickens, rabbits, and other domesticated animals until Nov. 5.
  • District Planning Engagement Sessions — The City of Edmonton is hosting information and engagement sessions with the team behind the District Planning project, which aims to organize Edmonton into 15-minute districts, guide neighbourhood redevelopment, and simplify land-use policies.
