CA EDM RG-17-17.11 · Series · 1974 - 1989
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

This series contains subdivision files created by the City when land was subdivided specifically for condominiums. The files typically include applications, correspondence, subdivision plans, and copies of relevant pages of minutes from the Municipal Planning Commission. The files were identified by a CN number and the properties identified by their legal address (i.e. lot, block, and plan). Some files also include a street address and/or a building name.

Subdivision Files
CA EDM RG-17-17.12 · Series · 1910 - 1990, predominant 1949 - 1990
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

This series contains subdivision files created by the City when land was subdivided. The files typically include applications, correspondence, and subdivision plans. The original filing systems have been retained. Subdivision files were typically identified by "year-X-number" and subdivision name.

Boxes 1-12
Between 1960 and 1965 subdivision files were arranged by year, then alphabetically by subdivision name.

Boxes 13-31
Between 1966 and 1974 subdivision files were arranged by year in zones (Yellow, White, Red, Green, and Blue).

Boxes 31-189
By the mid-1970s the subdivision files were arranged numerically by file number.

Boxes 190-196
At some point subdivision plans from 1973 to 1980 were removed from the files and stored them separately.

Boxes 197-201
These boxes contain subdivision files which had been removed from the original filing system and filed separately, alphabetically.

Boxes 201-243
These boxes contain subdivision files created by separate municipalities prior to the land being annexed by the City of Edmonton. These files were then transferred to the City for use by planners. The files are described using the Alberta Township Survey System and were generally arranged by the originating municipality.

Boxes 244-297
These boxes contain replot files, created when previously subdivided land had to be resubdivided by the City.

Boxes 298-315
These boxes contain a subdivision file index card reference system created by the department to keep track of subdivision applications and outcomes between ca. 1959 and ca. 1977. While much of the information is duplicated in the subdivision files, there are instances where the subdivision file has been lost and the index cards are the only source of information.

Land Use Bylaw Files
CA EDM RG-17-17.13 · Series · 1971 - 1992
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

This series consists of Land Use Bylaw files. These files contain the records created through the process of amending zoning (generally 2135 Zoning Bylaw and, later, 5996 Land Use Bylaw) to allow for new development, including applications, correspondence, copies of bylaws, and other documentation.

Zoning Appeal Board
CA EDM RG-17-17.14 · Series · 1936 - 1946
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

While zoning appeals were first mentioned in 1931 (Bylaw 8-1931), it wasn’t until 1933 that the Zoning Appeal Board was formally established through Zoning Bylaw 26-1933. The Board consisted of five members of the public, appointed by Council, including a member of the Alberta Architects Association, a member of the Alberta Land Surveyors Association, and a member of the Edmonton Real Estate Association. The Board heard appeals from zoning decisions made by the Building Inspector. The Board was governed by the Zoning Bylaw, but in certain circumstances could make recommendations to Council for alterations to zoning boundaries. The Zoning Appeal Board operated until 1950, when the Interim Development Bylaw (Bylaw 1339) was created, which established the Interim Development Appeal Board, which in turn took appeals from any decision made by the Interim Development Officer, including issues of zoning.

CA EDM RG-17-17.15 · Series · 1951 - 1962
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

The Interim Development Bylaw (Bylaw 1339) was passed in 1950. It was created to guide and regulate development in Edmonton until a General Plan and new zoning bylaw could be adopted. The bylaw created the Interim Development Appeal Board, which took appeals from any decision made by the Interim Development Officer, including related to zoning. The Board had seven members appointed by Council, and included a City Alderman, a member of the Alberta Association of Architects, a member of the Alberta Land Surveyors Association, a member of the Edmonton Real Estate Association, a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Alberta, a member of the Law Society of Alberta, and a member at large. The Board endeavored to make decisions to best promote orderly, economical, and convenient development in conformity with the basic principles of the evolving General Plan. The Appeal Board could refer cases to the Architectural Panel or Technical Planning Board when more information was required, and decisions of the Board could be appealed further to the Provincial Planning Advisory Board.

Zoning Committee
CA EDM RG-17-17.16 · Series · 1961 - 1968
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

The Zoning Committee was established in 1961 through the Zoning Bylaw (#2135). The Committee was an agent of City Council which acted in making administrative decisions regarding the uses of land and buildings in compliance with the provisions of the Zoning Bylaw. One function of the Committee was to hear appeals to decisions made by administration. The Committee was active only a few years: in 1966 a revised version of the Zoning Bylaw no longer included the Zoning Committee, and as early as 1963 it appears that City Council was responsible for hearing appeals.

This series contains a register of decisions to appeals heard by the Zoning Committee between November 1961 and August 1963, and by City Council between August 1963 and January 1968.
