Making 104 Street a Walking Street (S. Mandel)

 

 

 

I made an inquiry in December 2007 regarding making 104 Street a walking street.  On August 23, 2008, the attached motion was made at Executive Committee and not withstanding that the issue was not considered and incorporated into the Downtown Plan, I would like Administration to report back on the original motion of April 23, 2008.

Exec. Committee

 

3.2

Small Businesses Bidding on City of Edmonton Work
(S. Mandel)

 

 

 

It is my understanding that the processes involved in bidding on City of Edmonton work are prohibitive to small businesses.  I would like Administration to outline:

1.  What barriers small businesses face in doing business with the City of Edmonton?

2.  How can our processes change to enable small businesses to bid on City of Edmonton jobs?

Exec. Committee

 

3.3

Senior’s Crossings (S. Mandel)

 

 

 

Edmonton has an ever increasing number of seniors centres/residences that are built on busy intersections, which make it very difficult for seniors to cross.

I would like Administration to review and report back to Transportation and Public Works Committee on:

1.      What our City policy is for crosswalks with lights near senior centres/residences?

2.      Outline the number of senior centres/residences that are on busy streets and what the plans are for crosswalks at these locations.

3.      What would it entail to have crosswalks installed as part of the original construction budget as we move forward?
