IDEA is a community of committed Edmontonians passionate about the positive transformation of our mature and existing neighbourhoods.
The Infill Development in Edmonton Association (IDEA) is a proactive advocacy group that provides education and resources on infill development to the community and industry. We help to connect organizations, experts, businesses and individuals in order to encourage high quality and vibrant infill development in greater Edmonton.
Our membership includes designers, architects, builders, developers, property owners, realtors, financers, policy-makers, and community members-at-large who share a forward-looking vision of an Edmonton that is vibrant, walkable, efficient, flexible, resilient, sustainable, and healthy.
We advocate for positive transformation of our mature and existing neighbourhoods, aiming to connect, educate, and help shape policy to ensure this vision shapes the future of our city.
