COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES

3.1

After Hours Events Updates from Edmonton Police Service and Edmonton Medical Service (S. Mandel)

 

 

 

On January 25, 2012, Executive Committee asked Administration to bring back a report to Executive Committee with an update on the status of after hour events.  This is scheduled to come back on May 9, 2012.  It has come to my attention that there are some large scale after hour events coming to the City prior to the return of this report.  We had asked the industry to make some changes to their operations.  I would like Administration to work with the Edmonton Police Commission for an update from Edmonton Police Service and work with the Province to request an update from Edmonton Medical Service outlining:

1.  what after hour events have taken place between January 25 and present

2.  if there have been after hour events between January 25 and present what were the outcomes

3.  has there been a resource impact from any after hour events occurring between January 25 to present

4.  have we seen changes in the industry that have addressed the concerns since the discussion at the January 25, 2012, Executive Committee

I would like a report to return to Executive Committee on March 21, 2012.

The Quarters and Downtown Combined Heat and Power and District Energy Update (S. Mandel)

 

 

 

I understand there has been considerable effort invested in the Boyle Renaissance project area to implement Combined Heat and Power and District Energy technology between Phase 1 (now under construction) and Phase II Metis Seniors Housing (soon to be constructed).  I also understand that Administration, EPCOR, ENMAX and the Holms Group have been working with these project stakeholders to implement this technology.  The cogeneration facility would reduce capital costs, ongoing operating and maintenance costs and green house emissions.  As a result of these efforts, further opportunities are now being explored to advance similar Combined Heat and Power and District Energy technologies more broadly throughout the Quarters and into the Downtown.  Significant benefits could be realized for citizens and the utilities involved.  I would like Administration to provide a report

1.  Outlining the efforts to date to implement Combined Heat and Power and District Energy in the Quarters and Downtown.

3.3

Age Friendly Action Plan Update (S. Mandel/L. Sloan)

 

 

 

The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council produced a report in 2011 entitled A Vision for an Age Friendly Edmonton Action Plan.  It is built on a common vision of Edmonton as a community that values, respects and actively supports the well-being of seniors and promotes an age-friendly community.  The City of Edmonton is a key stakeholder in both the immediate and ongoing implementation of this plan.  I would like Administration to review the Age Friendly Action Plan and provide a report outlining:

1.  what each Department is already doing to become more age friendly

2. what actions within the Plan can be implemented in the future

3. what are the costs associated with future implementation
