    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    having secure, public bike storage facilities would be such a huge benefit for getting more people out. I'm fortunate enough to have a locked biking garage downtown with work, and i use it practically every time I bike anywhere close to the core

    103 Avenue Civic Precinct Renewal

    Why do you think we need roads in the core of the city to be designed this way?

    103 Avenue Civic Precinct Renewal

    Seems like an odd take, to say that so many people use it so only the least efficient form of transportation should be provided for it. I don't think 6 lanes of roads (plus on street parking in some spots) should ever be present in a city's core. This is prioritizing commuting over living, not a...

    103 Avenue Civic Precinct Renewal

    Does anyone know if there are plans for 101st on the west side of this project? While i think this project will do a lot, I cant help but think 101st bisecting this avenue is going to be very detrimental to the project as a whole. 101st as a whole i think could greatly benefit from some road...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    "there isnt much traffic here, so we should alter the road in a way that will result in more traffic on the road" Im struggling to understand your logic in any of your comments. Are you saying that there isnt much bike traffic, so it should be replaced with car lanes? or there isnt much vehicle...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    sorry, how does a bike lane on a road several blocks away make it any more accessible to bike on this road? and people should look at alternative forms of transportation? in a city and time where the vast majority of transportation is by car, biking is the alternative form already? You can drive...

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    Disagree. Going from how many trees are currently planted to how many trees would be required to block seeing across the entire plaza (if that's what you mean by sight-lines?) is a significant amount, and the count of trees could be greatly increased while still having the plaza feel open. As...

    Suburban Development and Sprawl

    Totally agree, especially on the property tax part. The way that property taxes are collected seems extremely outdated and should have some sort of cost-to-serve component, this would capture both low density residential, low density commercial, areas of sprawl, and the whole variety of surface...

    Suburban Development and Sprawl

    well, if people had to pick between changes to their neighbourhood or a higher cost of living, then im sure they would be more likely to change. And if they didnt, well then increases in property tax to these money draining areas would at least start to flip the script on who in the city pays...

    Suburban Development and Sprawl

    I wonder how much it costed Guelph to have this analysis done, and if its something that Edmonton should look into. While current council might already be very supportive of increasing density (im honestly not sure), having a report like this that so clearly spells out the cost of it all...

    Edmonton | Centre Polonia | ?m | 3s

    address for this? The building looks good, but what's with the two seas of asphalt on either side of the building ☹️ hoping this is just a rough render, as it seems quite overkill, especially while the patio space seems quite cramped. Even if its as not as public of a facility as other types, it...

    Edmonton | Metro Line LRT | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Just out of curiosity, is anyone in here thinking of, or already registered to, speak at the mass transit event on feb 15th? Despite the views in here, obviously forward thinking ideas like not incentivizing suburban sprawl arent making it to the people running the show

    107 Ave Revitalization - 101-122 Streets

    whats so ridiculous is that, by just removing the centre lane and narrowing the rest of the car lanes (which we absolutely have wide enough roads to do so), we would have enough space for a 2 way bike lane on each side of the road ( i dont mean have 2 way bike lanes on either side, just saying...

    107 Ave Revitalization - 101-122 Streets

    and what on earth do we have to sacrifice to get bike lanes in place of Centre turning lanes

    107 Ave Revitalization - 101-122 Streets

    on the corner of 105 and 107ave, why put in a raised crossing rather than just take out the advance turn onto 107ave?? why do we need max vehicle speed on the corner of a pedestrian park

    Edmonton | Connect Centre | 56.3m | 16s | ONE Properties | DIALOG

    Wondering what peoples thoughts are or if there are plans for 104ave in front of rogers once this is all done, or if there are plans once the valleyline west starts being constructed. 6 lanes of traffic is not going to do anything to improve the general feel of that area. really hoping a road as...

    Keep 102 Ave closed to vehicles

    I think we have a few thousand too many case studies to look at around the world to see how that street is gonna function as designed
