We already have several great winter festivals and lots of outdoor activities. But we want to build on these and transform Edmonton into a world leading winter city; one where urban design reflects our northern climate, where snow and ice are used as resources and where public spaces are vibrant, inviting and comfortable places to be even on cold days.

So the City of Edmonton Community Services Department is developing a WinterCity Strategy - a plan with recommendations for making Edmonton a great northern city. And we want your ideas for the best way to do this.

We're focusing on 4 key strategic areas:

• Urban Design, including: public life, public spaces and buildings
• Quality of Life and Livability
• Hospitality, Tourism, Business
• City Branding & Marketing

All ideas for making Edmonton a great northern city will be taken into consideration by the WinterCity Strategy Project Team, but won't necessarily be directly referenced in the final WinterCity Strategy Report. That report will be going to Edmonton City Council in fall 2012.
