LEE RIDGE

Lee Ridge is one of the 27 neighbourhoods of Mill Woods. The Mill Woods land bank was assembled in 1970 by the Government of Alberta because of concern over the rising cost of serviced residential land in the Edmonton area. Mill Woods was named for Mill Creek which crossed it and the groves of Parkland forest trees that stood there. By 1971, a development plan had been prepared by the City of Edmonton. The City began to purchase the land, subdivide it and sell residential and commercial building lots. More about Lee Ridge...

Residential development in Lee Ridge began in 1972 and was substantively complete by the end of the decade. The neighbourhood is bounded by arterial and collector roadways. Another collector road and bus route, Millbourne Road East, bisects it. Interior streets follow curvilinear and cul-de-sac patterns. A number of strategically placed pathways promote pedestrian and bicycle travel within the neighbourhood. The focus of the neighbourhood is a multiple purpose school and recreational site. High density housing and commercial sites are located along collector and arterial roadways. The objective of the neighbourhood design is to provide for an efficient flow of traffic to and from the neighbourhood while minimizing the disruptive and hazardous effects of traffic within the neighbourhood.

Lee Ridge, together with three adjoining neighbourhoods comprise the Millbourne Community, with a community level shopping facility at the centre. Residents of Lee Ridge are served by both the neighbourhood level commercial amenities and the larger Millbourne Shopping Centre. As well, Lee Ridge residents are served by the health services, commercial, recreational and educational facilities of the nearby Mill Woods Town Centre. The Lee Ridge neighbourhood includes an area, in its southwest corner, where development regulations were modified to permit the use of mobile homes as permanent residential structures on individual subdivided lots. The housing mix in Lee Ridge reflects the “compact development” philosophy of early development in Mill Woods. There is an equal split between dwelling units in single unit structures (35%) and mobile homes (9%) and dwellings in higher density housing forms (12% semi-detached,32% row housing, and 12% low rise apartments).

Lee Ridge was named in honour of Robert Lee, Mayor of Edmonton, 1909-1910.
