The Way We Grow, Edmonton's Municipal Development Plan (MDP), is the City’s strategic growth and development plan. It directs and shapes Edmonton’s urban form over a 10-year period.
The MDP provides policies and guidance to chart the course for Edmonton to evolve over time into a more compact, transit-oriented, and sustainable city.
The plan is closely integrated with the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) to achieve more coordinated decision making between land use and transportation planning. The plan also includes a regional component which addresses the coordination of future land use, growth patterns and transportation systems with Edmonton’s neighbouring municipalities.
City Council approved The Way We Grow, Edmonton's Municipal Development Plan, as Bylaw No. 15100, on May 26, 2010.
