Draft Plan Overview
The City of Edmonton has received a draft plan (35.5MB) for a new neighbourhood structure plan, named Northwest Decoteau. This neighbourhood is located in southeast Edmonton, east of 50 Street and south of Ellerslie Road.
The proposed Decoteau Area Structure Plan (21MB) establishes the high level land use planning and policy framework that guides future neighbourhood development in the Decoteau area. The proposed Area Structure Plan (ASP) amendments bring the proposed Decoteau Northwest NSP into alignment with the existing intent of the ASP. The proposed Decoteau ASP will also update the text, statistics and maps.
Neighbourhood Structure Plans (NSP) describe the general pattern of development for a new residential neighbourhood. The policies of the NSP guide the next stages of development, including zoning, subdivision, infrastructure design and construction.
The proposed Northwest Decoteau NSP outlines:
- Type and location of residential, commercial and other land uses
- Estimated population densities
- The location of major roads and utilities (water, storm and sanitary sewers)
- Future park space and school sites
- Preservation of natural areas
- General staging pattern for development
The draft Northwest Decoteau Development Concept Map outlines the general area layout.
The draft Northwest Decoteau NSP Detailed Figures (11MB) include information about servicing.
The draft Northwest Decoteau Neighbourhood Statistics include population forecasts.
Northwest Decoteau’s Unique Landscape
The Decoteau Area has the largest wetland complex within the City of Edmonton boundaries.
This network of wetlands and natural areas is an important ecological system and will be a recreational feature for southeast Edmonton.
