Keywords: City Politics, Edmonton, Canada, Urban Development, Globalization
AbstractAchieving economic success in a globalized world is a complex task for cities. One of the most important challenges cities need to address to reach prosperity is how they plan their development. Creating a socially, and economically attractive environment can help cities prosper. This essay explores the development impediments that Edmonton has experienced in the last few essays. Specifically Edmonton's focus on suburbanization has put Edmonton at a competitive disadvantage internationally. However, with strategies explored, Edmonton can drastically improve its quality of life.
