Valley Line LRT
Environmental Impact Screening Assessment

Non-Statutory Public Hearing

Dear Edmontonians, 

Thank you for your continued involvement in the Valley Line (SE-West LRT) project
On August 21, 2013, the City of Edmonton Transportation Committee of Council made a motion that the Valley Line Environmental Impact Site Assessment come back before Committee on September 11, 2013 for approval. 

As outlined in the North Saskatchewan River Valley Area Redevelopment Plan (City of Edmonton Bylaw 7188), Stage 1 of the Valley Line LRT has performed a comprehensive Environmental Impact Screening Assessment (EISA) of affected sites. This assessment details potential impacts, areas of concern and mitigation measures for River Valley sites affected by Valley Line LRT construction and operation. The assessment has now been completed and is available here, along with the accompanying Site Location Study (SLS).
