We advocate for the creation of a liveable city through good urban design practices and heritage preservation by collaborating with our citizens and city-builders.
Progressive and effective urban design requires advocacy and building internal and external partnerships. Our team collaborates with professionals within all departments of the City, to provide expertise, workshops and design reviews. We review city master planning studies and developments, such as Edmonton Exhibitions Lands, the Downtown Public Places Plan and major land development applications.
As a team, we develop design principles, guidelines and regulations which help to improve our city by setting higher design standards. We suggest best practice approaches to public space improvements in order to create great spaces for people. We are also involved in the concept design of streetscape improvement projects, such as Imagine Jasper, in partnership with Road Design and Construction branch and the Office of Great Neighbourhoods.
We advocate for better design through programs like the Edmonton Urban Design Awards that recognize superior urban design developments in a number of categories.
