Connecting people with the stories of their city.
New EHC Report
We’ve been an active partner in exploring how infill is changing neighbourhoods and the urban form of our city. In support of ongoing research and public engagement around the City of Edmonton’s Evolving Infill project, the EHC is pleased to share our latest draft report produced for the City of Edmonton: Edmonton’s Urban Planning, Neighbourhood and Housing Evolution. This report provides an historical examination of our neighbourhoods and their evolution as it pertains to infill and urban planning in Edmonton.
For more information on infill consultations and public engagement opportunities, check out the City of Edmonton’s Evolving Infill page.
