FROM THE CHAIR
April 8, 2021
I would like to provide you with a brief update on the latest developments arising from the association.
Upcoming Council Items
Through the month of April, UDI-ER remains actively engaged on multiple critical policies that impact our industry, including:
Edmonton Economic Action Plan
Advancing Major Infrastructure
Community Energy Transition Strategy
Sanitary Sewer Strategy Fund (SSSF) Oversight
UDI-ER has been actively engaged with City Administration on these files and will continue to be through Council and implementation.
Additionally, another upcoming Council item that we have been actively involved with is the Off-Site Levy Bylaw - currently slated for Council in June. We will continue to keep Members apprised of all Council-related information. Please feel free to reference the Council Briefs section of the UDI-ER website for further information as it is updated.
Letter from Edmonton City Manager Andre Corbould
On Tuesday, March 30th, we received the following letter from Edmonton City Manager, Andre Corbould. The market is driving much needed new investment and as we all know, meeting timelines are critical. As a friendly reminder to all our Members on behalf of the City, please be sure to submit complete applications; missing information will only extend the approval process. We must continue to do our part to ensure timelines are met, while also working with the City to improve process and timelines on their side.
Please join us for our next UDI-ER Webinar on Thursday, April 15th (12pm - 1pm) featuring Chief Economist at Alberta Treasury Board and Finance, Catherine Rothrock. To register, please click here.
