About the Project

The business plan is a key step toward advancing the River Crossing vision, which is to transform West Rossdale into a vibrant community and a special place for all Edmontonians.

The work involves preparing an updated redevelopment concept for West Rossdale that considers future land uses in the area, including a repurposed Rossdale power plant, as well as infrastructure requirements. The plan will also determine how best to implement the redevelopment concept.

Building on previous studies, including the West Rossdale Urban Design Plan and Heritage Interpretive Plan, the plan will involve financial analysis and capitalize on the area’s city-building potential. The plan will identify public investment that can be staged over time and establish partnerships that will help make the plan a success.

Next Steps

Staff have planned several phases of public engagement and outreach which started in late 2017. At the end of each phase, the project team will report back on input that was received.

Refining the Preferred Design: Early 2019
In this final round of engagement, a preferred concept will be shared with the public. Feedback gathered will help staff refine this concept.

Presenting the Business Plan Report to City Council: Early 2019
A refined preferred concept and supporting report will be presented to Urban Planning Committee in early 2019 for potential funding in the next budget cycle (2019-2022).
