    Database Update Thread

    Just a quick revision needed that 4 projects on the map should be changed from 'Construction' to 'Complete.' -Londonderry Affordable Housing Redevelopment -The Vermillion...

    Transportation Safety and Vision Zero

    I'd be curious if you took out the homeless population downtown that chooses to dart out into the middle of the street, with zero concerns for getting hit, what if any impact that would have on the figures. I don't drive a lot downtown, but have definitely had a relatively high proportion of...

    That's correct, I do not like the name they have chosen.

    And I'm pretty stoked for the solar plant, and think it's a very exciting project. I believe the location is excellently situated for this project.

    Blatchford Development | City of Edmonton

    When I drive by and a via train is parked there, I believe it goes all the way to the end. Although stand to be corrected if someone is more informed on this.

    LRT Safety

    I like the idea, but this seems overly expensive at current, or even projected future ridership.

    Blatchford Development | City of Edmonton

    As long as the infrastructure is in place, I really think Blatchford takes off at an astronomical pace. I know quite a few people that are interested, however are waiting for the neighborhood to build out a little, as they were nervous about being the first owners in a completely empty area...

    Edmonton | Horne and Pitfield Building Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Limak Investments

    Sometimes old buildings just need to be demolished. Of course a historic board believes too many buildings are not being saved, as that's always their only opinion. If developers want to save buildings or facades I guess that's fine, although demolition is a lot more exciting as something...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    This is one project I wouldn't be upset being 100% wrong about. If somehow this could all get built and operated with a reasonable subsidy from government, I'd be so thrilled. However if I had the time horizon to bet someone on this, I'd be pretty comfortable offering 100-1 odds for...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    Nothing scientific about my prediction as I am not a transportation analyst. I would like to say there is a 0% chance in the next 15 years, but it is really difficult to predict beyond 5 years down the road if some transformative technology comes about which makes cost of constructing and...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    I would hope there was a 25% chance, but more likely there is probably less than a 1% chance of this going forward in the next 15 years.

    Canada Soccer

    Can someone explain why over $200M of government support is needed to support 4 games? Where is all this money going to?

    General Food & Dining Thread

    I would rather support a restaurant owned by a Russian oligarch over the owners of Transit. Can only hope that Transit fails and the owners go bankrupt.

    McDougall Hill Pedestrian Bridge

    Don't need cars stopping on a hill so a pedestrian can save a couple steps. It's not safe, and is not needed in this case.

    LRT Safety

    Absolutely true. I think it's because there hasn't been much pushback to having homeless people and drug addicts using these spaces as temporary shelter during the day, especially when the weather is cold. It just comes off as cruel if the police or Peace officers are seen as kicking these...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    That's fair, and you have every right to your opinions and I'm not saying you're wrong. For this particular location, our opinions differ.

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    I'm sorry, are you the authority on this Tommy? I do support bike lanes. Also, I do support parking and cars when warranted. You really need so stop coming off as so entitled.

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    Thanks for the information, and like I previously have stated, I support bike lanes. I don't, however, support them in every location. In the end, this location is likely to get one of 3 options to support better bike lane infrastructure here. Some of you people really need to chill. Parking...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    I love the promenade. Used it a lot to both go for walks, cycle along it, and use a scooter when I lived in Oliver. It is absolutely fantastic, especially after the coffee food truck started setting up at LaMarchand Mansion on weekends. I just believe that it is largely fine as is. The...

    William Hawrelak Park Rehabilitation

    Is this number in fact true? They are only paying $48,000 a year? Since they are leasing, no property taxes on top of that then? Just want to make sure there is something I'm not missing here.
