Capital Region Board Land Use Plan

Edmonton, AB

In June 2009, the Minister of Municipal Affairs directed the Capital Region Board (CRB) to complete additional tasks under tight timelines to support the Capital Region Growth Plan (CRGP). The CRB retained ISL to complete the prescribed land use tasks.

24 Member Municipalities

To complete the work, ISL reviewed growth plans in other regions, established an understanding of land use documents and activities of all 24 member municipalities (municipal development plans, land use bylaws, etc.), formulated policy recommendations and prepared GIS-based mapping.


Density targets were to be established, along with graphic representation of transportation, utility and recreation corridors. In addition, ISL consulted with the CRB’s Planning Advisory Group, Land Use Committee and the administrations of member municipalities to establish accurate totals.

Study Results

The results were published in the October and December 2009 Addenda to the CRGP and approved by the CRB. The Minister issued a Ministerial Order to formally approve the CRGP and Addenda in March 2010.
