Planning on watching this panel discussion from today - Imagining Downtown put on by EDBA. Sharing for anybody else interested.


Interesting comment from Kate on how she thought Downtown Winnipeg was quiet... until she came to Edmonton.

But I thought we led N.A.?

Hmmm

But great to see EDBA looking outside of Edmonton for ideas, perspective and opportunities going forward. Bravo.

She was also very envious of Edmonton on various other fronts. And Nolan Marshall, Downtown Vancouver BIA, said the city exceeded his expectations (although they were low going in based on what people in Vancouver told him - he had never been here before but has worked mostly in US cities on their downtowns).

Both noted the Warehouse Park as one of our greatest potential successes and opportunities to accelerate dt population growth - let's get this right COE and those providing input.

Some interesting things about Winnipeg being highlighted in its current municipal election and why there is such concern there:
Winnipeg is growing out in land space three times greater than its population is increasing. That has left the city with a big deficit.
Edmonton as we know has one-third of its GHG emissions from vehicles. Because of the lack of density and car dependency and poor transit and limited active transportation options, nearly 50% of Winnipeg's GHG emissions are from vehicles.
