The Jun. 26, 2017, Regular Meeting of Council included:

Green Line LRT Alignment and Stations

Council approved the recommended alignment and station locations for the Green Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) long-term vision from 160 Avenue N. to Seton. Council directed Administration to report back no later than Q1 2018 with a Stage 1: 16 Avenue N. to 126 Avenue S.E. project update including a recommended contracting strategy and future staging approach. The Green Line LRT Long Term Vision: 160 Avenue N. to Seton provides the guidance for future investments in extensions when the time is right, provides the guidance for integration, and provides the opportunity to leverage this unprecedented investment to shape the growth of Calgary. The alignment and station location recommendations for the Green Line LRT concludes the long-term vision phase for the program. Recommendations were developed after significant consultation, the evaluation of multiple options, informed by the four layer approach, and validated through risk assessments and value management exercises.

Investigation of the Merits of Autonomous Vehicle Testing in Calgary

Council unanimously approved a motion to direct Administration to prepare a business case and risk assessment to evaluate the merits of testing autonomous vehicles on Calgary’s roadways and report back to Council through the Transportation and Transit Committee no later than Q4 2017.

Scoping Report for a Highland Park Area Redevelopment Plan

Council directed Administration to include the Highland Park Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) in the Planning & Development Department’s 2018 policy work plan. Council further directed Administration to coordinate the work with the area’s regional drainage study. An ARP for the Highland Park community could provide the opportunity to advance the goals and objectives of the Municipal Development Plan and Transit-Oriented Development principles as highlighted through the 40 Avenue North Green Line charrette; however, given recent concerns regarding an ongoing Regional Drainage Study for the area, development of a policy plan must be coordinated with that study to understand the nature and impact of potential stormwater management solutions.
