Mature Neighbourhood Overlay Review 

Engagement Events

The review of the Mature Neighbourhood Overlay (MNO) is important to citizens across Edmonton. The public engagement program to support the MNO review is an inclusive process with a variety of engagement opportunities planned or in progress.

Upcoming engagement:

May Mixed-Topic Insight Community Survey

The survey contains several questions for feedback on how citizens define mature neighbourhood character. Please sign up to join the Edmonton Insight Community survey at

Drop-in Interactive Session
Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2016
Time: 4 pm - 8 pm
Location: Chateau Louis Conference Centre (11727 Kingsway NW)

*No Advance Registration Required

This event will be an opportunity for residents to tell us what features they like best about mature areas, what their ideal block looks like, and what development regulations they feel are working and not working in their neighbourhoods.

Facilitated Workshop
Date: Saturday, May 28, 2016      
Time: 9 am - 12 pm
Location: University of Alberta –     
Lister Centre, Maple Leaf Room (11613 87 Ave NW)

Registration: Advance registration for this event is now open. Residents are encouraged to register early, as space is limited.

Workshop participants will explore what defines neighbourhood character, and how the MNO regulations and development process could be improved to ensure new development supports the unique features of each neighbourhood.

June Insight Community Survey
Date: Mid-June 2016

This survey will provide another opportunity over and above the May engagement events for residents to share their feedback on how to make the MNO a more effective tool for shaping development in mature neighbourhoods. The survey will be distributed through the Insight Community, and promoted through a variety of additional channels, including: traditional and social media, targeted communication to the development industry and community associations, and the Evolving Infill newsletter.

Recent Engagement

This past Saturday, City Administration hosted a Jane's Walk in the Bonnie Doon neighbourhood, attended by 27 citizens. Conversations were held on neighbourhood character, the approach to establishing the front setback, and on articulation of the facades on semi- detached dwellings and much more.
