Project Summary

We prepared and led workshops for City of Edmonton staff and council to build internal understanding and support for innovative, green industrial development in the city. In preparation for the workshops, a background information review was conducted for a number of municipal plans, policies and other documents to highlight potential areas for synergies, complimentary municipal and economic development initiatives, and environmentally significant considerations that will guide future development planning decisions. Special attention was given to how Area Structure Plans (~Secondary Plans) can foster eco-industrial activity. The workshops introduced participants to the principles of eco-industrial park design and development, provided case studies, and allowed participants to identify specific eco-industrial opportunities for Edmonton.
