Edmonton city Coun. Andrew Knack posted a video to social media and said he felt inspired about 15-minute cities.."It's something that's so convenient," Knack said.."Everything is going to be within 15 minutes. You're not going to have to worry about traffic because people won't need a car. And when we say 15 minutes, we mean a 15-minute walk, not a 15-minute drive. We want you to live in an area, a district where everything that you need is 1.5 kilometers.".READ MORE: 15-minute city project is preparing to help Edmonton reach 1.25 million people.It appears the City of Edmonton wants to be a 15-minute city for residents..District Planning is a multi-year project to build a “community of communities — small towns in our big city," where people can meet many of their daily needs within 15 minutes of where they live in Edmonton..READ MORE: Yegunited protests 15 minute cities in Edmonton.Twitter users were quick to react to Knack's post about the plan.."What happens when you leave your 'District?'

Addressing gaps and barriers will be essential for encouraging all modes of transportation at a local level," Sohi said in his policy campaign..There is no mention of restriction of movement by the City of Edmonton in its plan.
