  • The Bigger Picture: Allocating Public Benefits in the Policy Arena - Spacing Edmonton
    is conceived to work as follows A public investment is made in an area a catalyst This investment encourages development which increases property tax revenue The increased revenue over and above the baseline repays the original investment and additional revenue over the 20 year life of the levy is spent on further public investment projects in the area The CRL is sold as an arena funding mechanism that doesn t increase taxes This is at least somewhat disingenuous If successful in capturing increased revenue beyond the initial investment it is actually a tool to constrain future policy choices by forcing the benefits of development to flow to a particular area It s arguably a clumsy tool for doing so other cities where land is scarcer take a more direct approach with development and there is much room for disagreement about the proposed implementation of a CRL but how public benefits are captured and allocated is actually a much bigger question than whether there s a new building built to sit empty during the playoffs Actually a whole series of questions emerge Should the public benefits of development downtown flow to downtown The pie chart linked above suggests that it currently doesn t property taxes collected in the core drift out to the suburbs If the catalyst model is right then what projects are actually likely to spur development downtown What will it take for Edmonton to transform its collection of dusty surface parking lots into something else Wider sidewalks An LRT connection More public spaces And what about other areas of the city If an LRT line to Mill Woods increases property values resulting in more revenue for the City should those funds be restricted to improving Mill Woods What makes downtown special And hypothetically what if there weren t

  • My Top Five Reasons to be Optimistic About Public Engagement in Edmonton - Spacing Edmonton
    the intent behind it supporting quality engagement is promising From what I have heard there is reason to expect that the recently re energized OPI will look at sustained community based engagement rather than just depending on project based involvement as we are generally used to I m looking forward to seeing what transpires 5 Community Leagues Lastly I d like to acknowledge one of our in my opinion under appreciated resources community leagues While the relationship between City Council and the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues has not always been smooth see the controversy over the Mature Neighbourhood Zoning changes Community Leagues provide a much needed local conduit into communities As Edmonton continues to grow these channels are needed to access diverse perspectives on a variety of issues That being said it s important to remember that the perspective of a given Community League is not necessarily the view of all or even a majority of its residents They are not representative bodies for the purposes of engagement but they present a real opportunity to connect decision makers to residents Glenwood Community League Building And so there you have it my optimistic take for now This does not mean that there isn t considerable room for improvement from both perspectives the City and its citizens I think a key point from this blog post in 2011 by Mack Male still stands the City could make better efforts to ask and understand how citizens would like to be engaged Making inroads into improving the City s approach to public engagement will take focus and resources as well as commitment from Council and energy from residents Whether those elements are in place is up for discussion What are some of your bright spots in public engagement in Edmonton or elsewhere How can the City or other organizations better inform and engage you Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts Nîkânîw Edmonton s Aboriginal Youth Leadership Program New Old City This Is Edmonton Park ing Day 2015 Preserving Chinatown Tweet More posts by Jane Purvis 5 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Jean Daniel Cusin 3 years ago Jane It sounds like Edmonton is indeed an engaged and an engaging city Having been there in the past for the Jazz fest I found the enthusiasm of the residents for their city is indeed notable The sentence which most caught my attention was your My dream is that the passion can be harnessed to be constructive and creative two important elements in effectively dealing with some of our current and upcoming challenges This is about process to harness this passion and energy you need a process that is designed to achieve that outcome Unfortunately town hall like meetings don t achieve a high score in this department for a number of reasons so the payback on invested energy can
