Past events:

  • Edmonton Infill Tour

    How would you define infill? What is your perception of infill in Edmonton? Can you think of any examples of infill in the city? How can infill be guided to support the future sustainability, prosperity and well-being of our neighbourhoods and communities? What could infill look like? The City-Region Studies Centre (CRSC), Infill Development in Edmonton Association (IDEA), the City of Edmonton and Stantec in explored these and other questions as part of an interactive tour examining the infill movement in Edmonton. The public's voice is important in building a local dialogue around the future of infill in Edmonton.
