Thank you Chelsey Jersak from Situate, for providing an educational webinar to our REMAX River City agents on the new Edmonton zoning bylaw passed. We are very lucky for Chelsey to provide us her time and expertise on this topic so our agents can continously stand out and deliver top-notch service to their clients.
The City of Edmonton recently passed a density-boosting zoning bylaw revamp, the first since 1960s. This bylaw allows three-storey apartment buildings, townhouses, and/or duplex style housing citywide, ending the “exclusionary” zoning that limited many residential zones. Plus, has also decreased the total number of zones from 46 to 24.
The end goal of this bylaw revamp is to bring life to communities by building a denser, compact city with more housing types, and more options for small businesses. You can read the full coverage on this bylaw change on the Edmonton Journal.
1. All the current small scale infill zones (RF1, RF2, RF3, and RF4) are proposed to be consolidated and rezoned to RS. RS zones can now have up to 8 units (or 10 if a corner lot) on minimum lot size of 600 sq meters. (2023, Situate)
