Proposal for Scott / McRae

As you've likely heard by now, the landowner at the SW corner of Scott and McRae - across from the Trailhead and new Bridgeport development - is reactivating a proposal to develop the lot. It is a family-owned parcel currently, but a larger developer would likely become involved as it moves ahead.

City reserves analysis

On December 9, Council will vote on the city's budget. One of the chief points of discomfort I hear around the table is about the level of wriggle-room we've given ourselves if the budget is passed as is. Will we be able to fund another season of snow removal and clearing if this winter is again extraordinarily cold or snowy? What happens if we need to effect an emergency measure in our social services? Will we be able to fill our recreation programs to generate needed revenues if advertising is reduced? How would we deal with a major IT failure?

Round 2: Harmer/Wellington intersection analysis

Recently, I posted the results from the first effort I and Kevin O'Donnell made to analyze traffic at the Island Park/Byron intersection. I'm trying to find some time to write that up for staff, and ask for their analysis of the need for, among other solutions, bollards to prevent curb-hopping, advance left or other signal tweaks, and red-light cameras. I'm also looking at finding some time to go out and do a PM peak filming.

IPD/Byron counts

A couple of weeks ago, I undertook to try crowdsourcing a traffic analysis of the interesction of Island Park and Byron, working with Kevin O'Donnell on some new tools. I'm pleased enough with the results to try it again, and now Kevin is setting up film I took of the Harmer/Wellington intersection as a second attempt.

Let's go REDBLACKS - upping the Grey Cup ante

It's hard not to get caught up in Grey Cup fever! I've been a season ticket holder to the Redblacks (and Renegades) for three seasons now, south side, upper deck. This Sunday's game is already more excitement than we can ask for - what a Cinderalla season. But to ramp it up a notch, I and Edmonton city councillor Scott McKeen (@scott_mckeen) are putting a little something-something on the line:

Reid Park consultant recommendations

For months now, my consultant Wesley Petite has been holding workshops and receiving feedback on how we can use money set aside for the improvement of Reid Park. To quickly re-cap, when I came into office, I began to hear about a desire in the community to re-visit a prevous proposal for building a new field house in the park. In consultation with residents, I put the proposal on hold, and launched the current process.
