Policy C593 outlines how the City Administration involves the public when making recommendations to Council.
The City of Edmonton is committed to involving the people affected by the decisions it makes. We seek diverse opinions, experiences and information so that a wide spectrum of information is available to decision makers.
What are Public Involvement Opportunities?
At times, the City makes a decision and then seeks public involvement about how it will implement the decision. A decision may be made to extend the LRT. The public is involved in testing ideas about impacts such as aesthetics, neighbourhood impacts, or pedestrian access.
At other times, the City has not made a decision. The public is consulted to test ideas and concepts. In this way, decision makers are provided with the widest possible spectrum of ideas, views and experiences to help inform their decision making process.
What Can I Expect if I Choose to Participate?
City Policy requires all public involvement define
- Why the public is being involved
- What the public can expect
- How they will be advised of the outcome of the issue
- How they evaluate the process they took part in
