Here are some opportunities to offer your input on civic initiatives, including renewal projects in Dunluce and Oliver, urban agriculture in Fort Saskatchewan, and Edmonton's single-use item reduction bylaw.
- Dunluce Neighbourhood Renewal (draft feedback) — The City of Edmonton has prepared a draft design for the Dunluce renewal project. A drop-in public engagement event around the draft design is happening at St. Lucy Catholic Elementary School from 5:30pm to 8:30pm on Nov. 9, and an online community conversation is set for Nov. 16. Residents can complete an online survey until Nov. 30.
- Urban Agriculture Plan (planning) — The City of Fort Saskatchewan has begun developing its Urban Agriculture Plan, which concerns growing, processing, and distributing food in and around the city. The Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board's Regional Agricultural Master Plan, approved in December 2022, requires communities in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region to create urban agriculture plans. Pop-up public engagement events are scheduled for Nov. 14 and Nov. 16. Residents can also complete an online survey throughout November.
- Oliver Neighbourhood Renewal (planning and design) — The City of Edmonton has begun planning and design work for the Oliver renewal project, which is expected to enter construction in the spring of 2026. In October, the city released its first edition of the Oliver Neighbourhood Renewal Newsletter. Residents can complete an online survey about living, getting around, and accessing services in Oliver until Nov. 17.
- Single-use Item Reduction Bylaw Survey — The City of Edmonton is looking for feedback on its Single-use Item Reduction Bylaw, which took effect on July 1. The bylaw puts restrictions on certain single-use items, requires reusable cups for dine-in beverages, introduces a minimum fee for paper bags and new reusable bags, and more. A survey for residents and a survey for businesses will be open until Nov. 19.
