Here are opportunities to help inform city planning about a new urban farming program, a rezoning application in Windsor Park, and municipal elections.

  • Urban Farming Survey — The City of Edmonton is considering a new urban farming program that would allow residents to grow produce or raise animals on city land and sell products commercially. Currently, Edmontonians can only apply for development permits and business licences to farm on private urban land. Details are still being worked out, but residents can complete an online survey to inform the program until March 10.
  • Windsor Park Rezoning (advise) — Green Space Alliance has applied to rezone three adjoining properties on 116 Street in the Windsor Park neighbourhood to build a 23-metre residential building with possible commercial space on the ground floor. Residents can ask city planners a question or share their thoughts about the application until March 10.
  • Voter Engagement Initiative — The City of Edmonton wants to understand voter experiences in order to make municipal elections more accessible, inclusive, equitable, and ethical. The deadline to provide feedback through an online survey has been extended to March 31.
  • Leduc Sports Hall of Fame (nominations) — The City of Leduc is inviting residents to nominate a local athlete, team, or sports leaders to be inducted into the Leduc Sports Hall of Fame. Nominations are accepted all year, but the deadline to nominate someone for recognition in 2024 is April 30.
