When Mary Ann McConnell-Boehm looks 30 years into Edmonton's future, she sees a place where the population has increased by 400,000 and one in five residents is a senior citizen.

Although these predicted changes won't happen for decades, the senior city planner and her team are working hard on a long-term land-use plan that will help guide Edmonton's growth until 2040.

The last city plan was completed in 1998. Much has changed since then, McConnell-Boehm said Thursday.


Anyone interested in giving their opinion on which combination of these three scenarios should guide Edmonton's development can attend one of six free half-day public workshops on Oct. 31, Nov.1 and Nov. 3.

The meetings will be held in the University of Alberta's Lister Hall conference centre at 116th Street and 87th Avenue.
