Have Your Say - Density/Zoning Changes

Posted June 20, 2018

Urgent Input Needed

City of Edmonton administration has proposed changes to the Zoning Bylaw 12800. The revisions contained in this amendment that affect Oak Hills include:

  • Making semi-detached and duplex housing permitted uses in the (RF1) Single Detached Residential Zone.
  • Removing the current location restrictions for duplexes and semi-detached in these zones
  • Creating an exemption to allow semi-detached housing to be subdivided into its two halves, regardless of previous subdivisions on a site

Based on what we have been told, the City has already conducted public consultation on this subject. We were NOT aware of this consultation, and our residents share this feeling. We have heard concerns that the public consultation process has not been transparent and that the City has not communicated the potential consequences or safeguards to existing homeowners in terms of traffic, architectural, HOA membership, etc.

Oak Hills Community League has been asked to submit comments by July 9, 2018.

In an effort to provide more accurate comment, we would like to hear from all residents in our area, including nearby neighbourhoods. Time is very tight here, please complete the survey as soon as possible.

Survey closes the morning of July 8th

Community Fence Painting 2018

Join your neighbours & bring a brush to refresh a stretch of our street-facing and park-facing fences around the community! Refurbishment of these fences is an essential element of:

  • enhancing the local area,
  • ensuring that our neighbourhood feels inviting and safe,
  • encouraging a sense of pride & ownership of our neighbourhood,
  • and maintaining high property values & desirability to live in one of Edmonton's best neighbourhoods ​

Peeling paint, discoloration and non-uniform paint application makes our community look less desirable, encourages graffiti and shows an apathy to maintain our properties.

Show you care.. JOIN US for Community Paint Day 2018!

June 3rd

12:00 - 3:00 PM

Sign up here to confirm you can help!

Come for one hour or three, whatever you can make work. Refreshments will be provided after and it's a great way to meet some neighbours.
