Public Engagement

Public engagement is about when and how members of the public contribute to decisions made by the municipality. 

It plays a critical role in good governance and involves inviting public input on issues/decisions and considering that input when making decisions. Public engagement gives people the opportunity to contribute to decisions that impact them, know their input is valued, and feel welcome/safe to share their ideas and perspectives. 

Conducting meaningful public engagement is one way that the City helps ensure Leduc is a place where people want to live. It plays a role in enhancing citizen engagement, which is included as a key strategy in the 2023–2026 Strategic Plan and will be incorporated into various City projects over the next four years.

Urban Centre Redevelopment Plan  

The Urban Centre Redevelopment Plan (UCRP) is a two-year project with the goal of providing a land use guide for the revitalization and redevelopment of Leduc’s central neighbourhoods. This area is referred to as the Urban Centre and is made up of Alexandra Park Neighbourbood, the Central Business District and Telford House. The first engagement opporunity, visioning phase, has been completed in March 2023 where input will be used to help prioritize how we approach future land use, housing, phasing of redevelopment, urban design, and character of the area. Sign up for updates.
