Here are some of the other new agenda items:

  • Bylaws to set the 2023 levy rates for the city's three community revitalization levy areas — Belvedere, The Quarters, and Downtown — are ready for three readings.
  • Executive committee recommended that Bylaw 20427, which would close the property at 906 111 Street NW for the Capital Line South LRT extension, be given three readings.
  • Council will also consider private reports from its committees related to 2023 recruitment for agencies, boards, and commissions.
  • Charter Bylaw 20461 would allow for low-rise, multi-unit housing within a five-minute walk of the future Heritage Valley Town Centre LRT station.
  • Charter Bylaw 20460 would allow for a digital sign at the Fringe Theatre Arts Barns, which the current DC2 does not permit.
  • A mix of small-scale housing proposals will be considered for West Jasper Place, Glenwood, Britannia Youngstown, Parkallen, and Riverdale.
  • Other housing development proposals for Strathearn, Griesbach, and Malmo Plains will also be considered.

Meetings are streamed live on YouTube on the Chamber channel and River Valley Room channel.
