In just two years, Edmonton grew by 7.4% or more than 60,000 people. That’s 82 people moving to Edmonton every day. To put that in perspective, effectively from 2012 to 2014, we grew almost the size of St. Albert. Read more HERE.
The Annexation Agreement
The City of Edmonton has reached an agreement with Leduc County to annex portions of the County. Key elements of the framework for agreement include: agricultural land preservation, urban growth areas for Edmonton, protection of high load corridors along highways 625 and 19, and cooperative planning of land around the airport.
As part of the new Framework for Agreement, the City of Edmonton and Leduc County have agreed to the following:
The City of Edmonton amend its west annexation notice by withdrawing the lands west of the Edmonton International Airport (EIA) and south of Highway 19, reducing the proposed west annexation area by 2,584 hectares (6,379 acres) to approximately 9,469 hectares (23,398 acres).
Leduc County will retain the north Nisku industrial area and the reservoir (previously part of the east annexation notice), reducing the east annexation area from 3,945 hectares (9,748 acres) to approximately 2,632 hectares (6,504 acres).
Unless mutually agreed, the City of Edmonton’s boundary will not shift again into Leduc County until joint planning for that area has been completed.
The inclusion of EIA lands in the annexation will be determined over the next several months through a collaborative exercise between Leduc County, the City of Edmonton and the EIA.
