COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES

3.1

Seniors Declaration – Service Area Alignments (L. Sloan)

 

 

 

As the second anniversary of the City's Seniors Declaration approaches, I would appreciate a report from Administration outlining the measures taken to align or enhance relevant department services with the Declaration commitments. Report or reports generated are to be returned to the appropriate Committee.

 

City Manager

 

 

Due Date:

3.2

Additional SLRT Station (D. Iveson)

 

 

 

During the concept planning of the South LRT in 2005 there was some consideration given to including a station between Southgate and Century Park. I believe there is still interest in looking at a station to serve communities and institutions in the area of 40th Avenue. Therefore, I would like Administration to comment on the following:

1. Given that the LRT Network Plan and Design Guidelines have changed since 2005, would an additional station be consistent with Council’s more recent direction from 2009 on LRT design?

2. Could construction of a new station be accomplished while maintaining LRT service?

3. Given that the LRT runs in the median, what special considerations would be required to accommodate safe pedestrian access to the platform from adjacent communities?

4. What would be the rough cost of constructing a community station similar to McKernan/Belgravia in 2012 dollars?

5. From a Land-Use perspective, are there medium- to long-term intensification opportunities in the area that could benefit from the presence of an LRT station?

6. What parking restrictions are available to control parasitic parking issues in adjacent communities that often accompany a new station?

7. What would be the next steps Administration would recommend to committee should there be a desire to explore this further?
