Updates on the Mature Neighbourhood Overlay: At this point, the proposed changes to the MNO will proceed to Council. Council, at Public Hearing, will make the final decision on the proposed amendments to the Overlay. Once bylaw changes are passed the City will promote the changes and the phase-in period for these regulations.
From the Edmonton Sun:
"To date, most of Edmonton's infill moves took a blanket approach. They allowed secondary suites, garage suites and lot splitting for 50-foot lots across the board, controlling the size of the new homes through a catch-all zoning — the mature neighbourhood overlay.
On Wednesday, Iveson asked administration to break with that tradition.
Council approved proposed changes to the mature neighbourhood overlay, then pushed further. City officials are scheduled to return Sept. 6 with a rough outline of how to focus higher density infill using criteria such as "pre-war areas with taller existing homes, areas near transit nodes and corridors, areas with deteriorating housing stock that would benefit from revitalization and/or areas with existing clustered ground-oriented multifamily housing."
Dawson Park and Kinnaird Ravine Master Plan Updates
To help ensure Dawson Park and Kinnaird Ravine remain a celebrated and cherished public space, the City is starting a master plan process to establish a 25-year vision and management plan for the park. The resulting plan will guide the park through the next stage of its history and will be developed throughout 2016 and 2017.
