Here are opportunities to offer feedback on a proposed rezoning for affordable housing in Dunluce, Edmonton's local shopping scene and 311 services, and St. Albert's communication efforts. Please only answer surveys from municipalities where you are a resident.

  • Your St. Albert: Themes and Meanings Survey — The City of St. Albert is working with an advertising agency to develop ways to better communicate with the public. Residents can tell the city what information they need, how they want it, and their thoughts on existing communication efforts by completing an online survey before May 17.
  • May Mixed Topic Survey — The City of Edmonton's mixed topic survey this month includes questions about shopping locally and using 311 services. Residents can complete the online survey until May 21.
  • Dunluce Surplus School Site Rezoning Application — The City of Edmonton received 20 surplus school sites from Edmonton Public Schools in 2009, with council designating 14 for affordable housing. The public is invited to provide feedback on a proposed rezoning of the Dunluce site at 12030 162 Avenue NW from a parks zone to a medium-scale residential zone. Residents can share their thoughts on the application or ask a question until May 26.
  • District Planning Public Hearing — The City of Edmonton invites members of the public to register to speak at an upcoming public hearing on its proposed district policy and 15 district plans. Speakers are asked to register in advance. The public hearing is set for May 28.
