We made it! Our first neighborhood to feature in this segment is straight from the South East! Yes, it’s Walker!
Bounded by Ellerslie Road, 66 Street and 50 street, this new neighborhood was formerly used as agricultural land. Farmhouses and residential lots are located along 50 and 60 streets.
See map below:
According to the Walker Neighborhood Structure Plan (NSP), it:
seeks to establish a vibrant and sustainable community in southeast Edmonton through the articulated integration of land uses and their connection with one another.
This neighbourhood does not contain any active gas or oil wells based from the information provided by the Alberta Energy & Utilities Board (AEUB) so the neighborhoods resources are geared more towards agriculture. You can get updated on the Alberta Energy Regulations here: Alberta Energy Regulator
High-density housing makes up 5% of the residential distribution, while mid-density is at 45% and low-density sits at 50%. Although a bit outdated, the City of Edmonton’s 2012 municipal census recorded 2,036 people residing in 832 homes. In the same year, the population density reached 774.1 people/km2.
Once the economy rebounds, we may see great progress as the Walker NSP plans to build a mix of residential, commercial, institutional and recreational land uses.
