30 km/hour School Zones now in Effect

30 km/hour School Zones now in Effect

Starting September 2nd, 30 km per hour school zones are in effect around elementary schools in Edmonton, a program which has been advertised in the media in recent weeks. 

This is a simple change that will help protect children as they begin the school year. Elementary students are among the most vulnerable people on the roadways given their size and inexperience in navigating tasks like crossing the street. Slowing traffic around schools adds a buffer as vehicles require much less stopping distance.

High Level Bridge a Symptom of Major Issue

High Level Bridge a Symptom of Major Issue

 

This week, Council’s Community Services Committee heard from experts and discussed options for a barrier along the walkways of the High Level Bridge.

These options are being considered as deterrent to suicide attempts from the Bridge, which has become a suicide “hotspot” in our City, similar to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. At the meeting Monday, the Committee decided to recommend Council fund an approximately $3 million installation.

Clean it up, fix it up campaign

My following "Councillor Connection" about nuisance properties appeared in the Edmonton Examiner earlier this week:

Edmonton is a beautiful city, with a spectacular river valley, expansive green spaces, unique architecture and eclectic neighbourhoods.

However, in any city, particularly one that's growing as fast as Edmonton, there are always a few "nuisance properties." Any property that is untidy, unsightly, offensive, dangerous, or interferes with the enjoyment of neighbouring properties is considered a nuisance under  Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw.

It was a shining moment for our city, bringing unprecedented international attention and setting the stage for Edmonton to become a major sporting event host city. Edmonton is building on that legacy with its bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Come celebrate Canada Day in Mill Woods! #yeg

Come celebrate Canada Day in Mill Woods! #yeg

Canada Day is a great opportunity to reflect on how lucky we are. We live in a country that is welcoming and inclusive and provides all its inhabitants with an excellent quality of life. Volunteers are at the heart of what makes Edmonton a wonderful place, and we see that especially in the southeast where neighbours band together to improve and protect our community and to put on exceptional events.
