Last week, community and public services committee recommended that a pilot project to allow public alcohol consumption in select parks run from May 28 to Oct. 11 and executive committee referred the second phase of the Edmonton Economic Recovery Grant to council without a recommendation. Both items will be considered by city council on Monday, May 3.
Here are some of the other notable agenda items coming before city council this week:
- At its meeting on Monday, May 3, city council will receive administration's analysis of the 2021 federal budget and will very likely pass the 2021 property tax and community revitalization levy bylaws. They'll also receive a report on alternative strategies for the 105 Street temporary shelter that was voted down last week.
- At a public hearing on Tuesday, May 4, a rezoning application for Beljan Development's proposed high-rise residential tower in Garneau called The Hive will be considered. If approved, the tower at 108A Street and 86 Avenue could be up to 27 storeys tall with underground parking and up to 245 dwellings.
- On Wednesday, May 5, city council will receive annual reports and work plans from the Edmonton Combative Sports Commission, Community Services Advisory Board, Naming Committee, Edmonton Design Committee, Energy Transition Climate Resilience Advisory Committee, and Edmonton Salutes Committee.
- The emergency advisory committee will receive its next update on COVID-19 at 1:30pm on Thursday, May 6.
