Northlands Releases Vision 2020

by Northlands

EDMONTON, AB – Today, alongside Mayor Don Iveson, Northlands President & CEO Tim Reid unveiled Northlands Vision 2020, a plan for the immediate future of the 160-acre Northlands campus.
“Northlands’ realities have changed and we needed to find new ways to serve our community, as we have for over 137 years,” continued Reid. “We listened closely to what our city needed and what we could realistically provide – Vision 2020 is the result.”

Vision 2020 is an innovative, tangible plan that satisfies the athletic and entertainment needs of Edmontonians. It takes advantage of buildings already in place and relies on Northlands’ proven capacity as one of the city’s premier events and athletics hosts. The transformation has three cornerstone projects: “I congratulate Northlands on their bold new vision to repurpose their existing facilities,” said Mayor Iveson. “My Council colleagues and I are looking forward to hearing more details and listening to what Edmontonians think of the Northlands proposal.”

The new spaces will compliment Northland’s large roster of traditional events and programming, such as K-Days, FarmFair International, its connection to agriculture and the many shows and conferences that currently make their home at the Edmonton Expo Centre.

“Northlands belongs to everyone. Our next steps are to reach out to the community to see if we got this plan right, and to ask them to actively help us refine this vision,” said Reid. “This isn’t about us telling the community what they get – this is about the community telling us what they want.”
