Calls for public engagement: downtown entertainment, Meyonohk, wetlands

· The Pulse

Here are opportunities to help shape the City of Edmonton's plans to establish an entertainment district and renew the Meyonohk area, plus a chance to contribute to discussions on Alberta's wetlands.

  • Entertainment District in Downtown — The City of Edmonton seeks feedback on designating Rice Howard Way between 100 Street and 100A Street as an entertainment district. The designation would restrict the street to only pedestrians and allow outdoor entertainment, food service, and alcohol service during summer weekends in an effort to improve vibrancy. Anyone who works, lives, or pursues recreation downtown can complete a short survey before April 16.
  • Meyonohk Neighbourhood Renewal (explore) — The City of Edmonton has started engagement about neighbourhood and alley renewal in the Meyonohk area of Mill Woods, with construction expected to start in 2026. Residents can share thoughts about driving, biking, walking, alleys, and parks and gathering spaces in Meyonohk until April 17.
  • New Wetland Opportunities — Parkland County is holding a public information session for residents to learn about wetlands in Alberta, ask questions, and to provide input to the county's administration. The session is happening at the Clymont Community Hall in Spruce Grove at 6pm on April 17.
