The West 240 vision and guiding principles will be formed through community input and will direct the development of a Conceptual Master Plan.
What is a Conceptual Master Plan?
A Conceptual Master Plan outlines what is envisioned to occur through the development of a site. It can include a range of land uses (residential, commercial, parks), infrastructure (roadways and utilities), employment opportunities, public facilities, and services. The creation of the Conceptual Master Plan will be guided by a vision formed through preliminary engagement that connects the history, community input, and development principles.
The West 240 site was farmed prior to being annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1913. The University of Alberta purchased the “South Campus” lands in 1920. The site has played an important role for the University of Alberta Agriculture, Life, and Environmental Studies Faculty (ALES). Developing West 240 presents a new opportunity to contribute to the long-term sustainability of the University of Alberta.
UAPT has been entrusted with developing these lands, beginning with public engagement activities starting in March 2023. Reimagining these lands will include input from all stakeholders and be guided by City of Edmonton policy. The first phase of engagement will help develop and refine the vision and guiding principles for the project.
