Calgary city council watchers have their next couple days charted out, with several big items on this week’s Combined Meeting of Council agenda.
We thought we’d provide you a road map of what’s ahead and some background on each of those items.
NOTE: It’s difficult to say when these items will come up at council. While they appear one way on the agenda, councillors can make changes and move items to certain times during the meeting.
AHS Dispatch consolidation
This should be the first item after councillors approve the consent agenda.
AHS Chief Paramedic Darren Sandbeck is expected to be in council to talk with councillors today.
The consolidation is expected to go into effect Jan. 1, 2021.
11 community business cases
This highly controversial issue may come to council Monday, but more likely on Tuesday. It involves council’s approval of communities in the Growth Management Overlay area.
Developer campaign funding questions dog Calgary city councillors ahead of 11 community vote – HOW MUCH DEVELOPMENT CASH DO THEY GET?
Residential parking permit program
The Transportation and Transit committee narrowly approved administrations recommendations on the permit parking situation.
Minimum parking requirements for Calgary business
In an effort to provide more flexibility for Calgary businesses when it comes to parking, the city will decide on allowing some businesses to avoid commercial parking requirements.
Calgary Neighbourhood speed limits
Another controversial issue will come to council and the public will get to have their say.
The move is to have an unposted speed limit citywide of 40 km/h and a posted 50 km/h on collectors, unless a lower speed could be accommodated.
Council will also discuss the final report of the council compensation review committee.
There may be more, and we’ll do our best to stay on top of it.
