MOTIONS PENDING

8.1

Feasibility of Adding Indoor Non-Tobacco Combustion Use to the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw (J. Dziadyk)

 

 

 

Councillor J. Dziadyk withdrew the following Notice of Motion given at the July 9, 2018, City Council Public Hearing:

That Administration, in the lens of public health and occupational health and safety, prepare a report on the feasibility of adding the use of “Indoor Non-Tobacco Combustion” as an option for businesses, within the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw. This would build on the previously completed work of adding the definition of “Cannabis Lounges” to the Zoning Bylaw. The report should consider age and advertisement restrictions, ventilation requirements, as well as tourism considerations. The definition for “Indoor Non-Tobacco Combustion” can be defined by Administration (and the label can change for accuracy), but it should include the ability for existing restaurants, coffee shops, and similar commercial ventures to add either Shisha Waterpipe use, or the Combustion of Cannabis, to existing operations. The intent is to not treat shisha and cannabis as similar, but to recognize that there is demand to smoke both of these non-tobacco products in commercial establishments. The report should comment on other City bylaws that would be required to be amended, if adoption of this use proceeds.

 

 

 

 

 

8.2

Ogilvie Ridge Surplus School Site (T. Cartmell)

 

 

 

T. Burge, Chief Financial Officer and Deputy City Manager, Financial and Corporate Services; and C. Kjenner, Citizen Services, answered Council's questions.

NOTICES OF MOTION AND MOTIONS WITHOUT CUSTOMARY NOTICE

10.1

City Sponsor on the Winter Cities Initiative (B. Henderson)

 

 

 

Councillor B. Henderson stated that at the next regular meeting of City Council, he would move the following:

That Councillor T. Cartmell be added to the Winter Cities Initiative.

 

  • Notice of Motion Given: August 21, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

10.2

Amendments to Vehicle for Hire Bylaw 17400 (M. Banga)

 

 

 

Councillor M. Banga stated that at the next regular meeting of City Council, he would move the following:

That Administration recommend possible amendments to section 33.1 of the Vehicle for Hire Bylaw to give Council the background information required to have a broad policy discussion about changing the effect of background checks. Administration should explore options that could allow City licensing officers to use their discretion for specific context of Criminal Code offences to consider renewing licenses when they are reasonably satisfied that a prior conviction will not jeopardize the applicant’s ability to safely provide vehicle for hire services to the public. Where possible, the professional record of the driver should be the main factor taken into account. The review should also seek to more clearly define when and what Criminal Code offenses should be considered “related to the functions, duties, or business of a vehicle for hire or driver.”

 

  • Notice of Motion Given: August 21, 2018
