Will Reynard Lentilles urban densification is a very, very good thing. Like · Reply · 2 hrs Citizens for Responsible Development - C4RD Citizens for Responsible Development - C4RD Absolutely, Will, urban densification can be good -- when it is responsibly planned and implemented. Edmonton lacks a plan, so urban densification is failing to achieve its goals of (1) curbing sprawl by providing affordable housing to prevent the flight to the suburbs, and (2) revitalizing mature neighbourhoods by ensuring a variety of housing types are built where they are needed. Details are found on the website at C4RD.ca. Thanks for your interest in responsible urban planning.

Sign the petition plus share the C4RD website. Tell City Council that neighbourhoods are harmed - not helped - by Council’s densification fiasco of lot-splitting, skinny houses, skinny apartments, condos on surplus school sites, and the resulting traffic shortcutting.

Citizens for Responsible Development - C4RD Nothing wrong with infill "per se" - there is a great infill house across the street from me; the house fits perfectly in my community. The problem is the City of Edmonton is dropping split lots & skinny homes in communities where they do not belong....See More

Philip Power Not sure how they are destroying communities? Anybody able to afford those skinnies and wanting to move to that neighborhood would probably fit right in. Isn't it about the people or families in a neighborhood rather than style or type of home?

Derrick Forsythe Philip Power the issue is the development industry is never happy with the status quo - the latest push is to have five-plexes permitted on RF1 lots in mature neighborhoods - IN EXCESS OF EXISTING Residential infill Guidelines

the larger problem is t
hat once a plan is set - communities expect that to be the end of discussion - the development industry sees the gains made as the next step to future, further concessions to the industry to dismantle existing post-war housing stock in mature commnities

Julie Ali Philip Power Infills are sometimes very odd in established neighbourhoods. They are sometimes being used (in my opinion) to make a fast buck for folks rather than increase the ability of citizens to buy homes in communities. I am not in favour of too many infills in established communities; we buy into these communities for a reason--we like the space.

Dougal MacDonald City council should just appoint developers to all the council positions.
