Here's a look at the agenda items coming before city council for the week of Jan. 18-22:
- Executive Committee will be asked to approve a $2.9 million agreement with the developer of Ice District for "Green and Walkable" sidewalk infrastructure and amenities which "go beyond minimum standards, and which offer amenity value to the public." The funds would come from the downtown community revitalization levy.
- The Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues (EFCL) is seeking approval to reallocate $78,000 that is currently meant to be used for an outdoor rink roof project to two new initiatives. The two projects are the development of a database for community league assets and the subscription and use of a campaign manager tool to provide leagues with grant information.
- Urban Planning Committee will receive reports on infills, including compliance, and fire protection. It will also discuss initiatives to support more and better infill in Edmonton, as per the Infill Roadmap 2018.
- The Kiniski Gardens surplus school site was listed for sale by the city and the Headway School Society of Alberta is hoping to purchase it.
- An update on Edmonton's Digital Action Plan states that in an effort to "stay a technology leader," the city is working with Canada's major carriers to "streamline the 5G permitting process." A revised plan will be made available in Q4 2021.
In addition to the usual committee meetings on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the city auditor recruitment committee is scheduled to meet on Friday morning.
