Edmonton Insight Community



Insight in Action

Vehicle for Hire Bylaw
Insight Community Members were invited to provide feedback on the vehicle for hire bylaw.

We wanted to update you on how your input is being used.

Click the following link to access the debate that has occurred already at Executive Committee: http://sirepub.edmonton.ca/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?meetid=1559&doctype=MINUTES

During the debate, City Administration presented the survey results, including the results of the Insight Community survey. Councilors asked questions about the Insight Community survey and Administration's response.

Thank you for input. We will keep you updated.

Rainbow Crosswalks
The rainbow crosswalks will be made permanent! After the Pride Festival, the Insight Community was invited to comment along with all other Edmontonians for feedback. What we heard was an overwhelming majority, 87%, were in favour of keeping them permanent.

Liquor Stores

"The results from the Insight Community liquor store survey were very informative. These results helped urban planners in Sustainable Development learn about community values around the location of liquor store in suburban areas. The feedback was used to draft changes to the City's zoning bylaw, and the proposed changes will be reviewed by Executive Committee on October 5. If Executive Committee agrees with the recommendations the proposed changes would be scheduled for Public Hearing early in 2016."

Waste Management
"Thank you for contributing your thoughts and comments in the May and September mixed-topic surveys about waste management programs and services.  Next year, we will be developing a strategic plan for the future of waste management services, and are looking forward to working with Edmontonians to help build the plan. Please keep an eye out for future survey questions and opportunities to participate in the planning process. edmonton.ca/waste"
