Smoking Prohibition - Churchill Square (M. Walters)

Community Svcs.

 

Due Date:
Oct. 15, 2014 CS Committee

 

3.2

One City Approach to Neighbourhood Work (B. Esslinger)

 

 

 

The City is working to create and demonstrate a culture of One City. I would like Administration to prepare a report on the steps that are currently being taken to have a one city approach to neighbourhood work, including the following:

-       Is activity in each neighbourhood by different departments tracked?

-       How do we coordinate work within each neighbourhood by the various departments and branches?

-       How would communities access information about activity and work that is ongoing in their neighbourhood?

Community Svcs.

 

Due Date:
Oct. 14, 2014 Exec. Committee

 

3.3

City Procurement Processes - Support for Local Businesses (B. Esslinger)

 

 

 

One of the City’s goals is to diversify Edmonton’s economy. As I understand it, this goal includes encouraging start-ups and entrepreneurs in the city, and encouraging others to support local businesses. I would like Administration to provide information on the following:

·         How does the City support local businesses with local employees through its procurement processes, both for lower value procurements, and for those that are under the trade agreements?

·         What is the process to identify and support local start-ups who may not have years of experience in our procurement process?

·         What training or other support is made available to start-ups and entrepreneurs to assist them in participating in the City’s procurement processes?

3.4

Westmount Heritage Decorative Lighting (S. McKeen)

 

 

 

The Westmount Community is known for having historical houses.  A DC1 designation encourages residents to maintain the heritage of the area, and there are a number of special plaques that highlight Edmonton’s history. Based on a supportive community survey, the Westmount Community League would like to pursue an Expression of Interest for the Glenora Style unique heritage light for the designated heritage DC1 boundaries as part of the neighbourhood renewal program commencing in 2015.  As two previous neighbourhoods (Glenora and the Viewpoint in Cromdale) have received City Council approval to proceed with an Expression of Interest for the same style of decorative lights, I would like Administration to provide information on how this type of light could be approved for the Westmount historical architectural area.

I would ask for this information to be brought to Committee by August 20, 2014, so the neighbourhood can proceed with its expression of interest and signature collection by September 1, 2014.

3.5

Engineering Drawing Review Process (D. Iveson)

 

 

 

It is my understanding that the City of Edmonton Engineering Drawing Review Process is facing challenges in managing a sharp increase in the number of drawings submitted for approval. As we continue to deal with growth pressures within our city, it is in everyone’s interest to have an approval system that is effective and efficient.

I would like Administration to report back on its current rate of approvals, the steps currently being taken to manage this increased demand, and what changes could be made to make the process more efficient and effective.

Due Date:
Aug. 19, 2014 Exec. Committee

 

3.6

Environmental Efficiency in Building Rehabilitation (D. Iveson)

 

 

 

The City of Edmonton has several documents related to environmental efficiency in its buildings and operations. These include the City’s Sustainable Building Policy and its Greenhouse Gas Management Plan which states a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from existing City Buildings by 26,000 tonnes a year through upgrades, both planned and proposed. These are good statements, but I am not clear how Administration applies these strategies specifically to building rehabilitation, so I would like to ask Administration:

·         Does Administration have clear and explicit goals for increasing energy efficiency when doing major renovations on City-owned buildings?

o   Is a triple bottom line approach part of our overall decision-making process for rehabilitation?

·         Do we identify opportunities to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions through renewal-based capital projects and what determines when a project is considered a renewal versus a growth project as pertaining to energy efficiency?

·         What loan or grant opportunities are available to the City to self-finance the initial investments required to make buildings more energy (and cost) efficient?
