Minutes from Nov. 13 Council meeting

Impact of Suspending Public Art Projects

Council received for information this report on the impact of suspending all new public art projects scheduled for RFP until Q2 2018. Council directed Administration to suspend the RFP 112th Ave. Road Widening public art project. Council directed administration remove the Anderson Pedestrian Bridge artwork and 5th Street underpass project from the suspended project list. Administration was asked to provide information to Council on the impact of suspending further RFPs for public art design until Q2 2018. Administration has analysed each of these projects against economic, social, and environmental criteria similar to those by which Council determined that the Southeast 17th Transitway was a significant project currently underway.

Olympic Update Report

Council received this report for information and directed Administration to report back to Council Nov. 20, 2017, with a formal funding request to deliver on the additional work required for the Dialogue Stage. Council further directed administration to seek confirmation from other orders of government to ascertain their funding commitment of the bid. This report provided an update to Council on whether it is prudent for The City to submit a bid to host the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (2026 OPWG). The Calgary Bid Exploration Committee (CBEC) reported to Council on July 24, 2017, that it was feasible for Calgary to host the 2026 Games but that more work was required to determine whether it was prudent to do so, as noted in their recommendations and verbal report to Council.
