Standard hoarding

Adequate screening, fencing or scaffolding (as per the Alberta Building Code) around the site is required to protect the public from any possible hazards. Permits are issued at the discretion of the Traffic Engineer.

Enhanced hoarding 

The City encourages the use of enhanced screening for hoarding applications. This adds visual interest and public art as well as provides opportunities for youth and artists to showcase their work. Interested developers work with Urban Youth Worx and a local artist to come up with artistic designs for their construction hoarding boards. See our Hoarding Brochure or visit Urban Youth Worx for further information.
