Title:Edmonton general plan: citizen participation program.
Corporate Author: Edmonton Social Planning Council
Subject:City of Edmonton - public participation
Publisher:Edmonton Social Planning Council
Place of Publication:Edmonton
Date of Publication:1979
Abstract:

The Edmonton Social Planning Council was contracted to initiate a process for citizen input to the Review of Edmonton's General Plan. This provided for the involvement of citizens, over a period of time from six months before the publication of the first draft of the Plan through to the final public hearings. To date approximately 400 persons have participated in public meetings and workshops. The intent of the workshops was to give citizens a way to see the complexities and ambiguities in deciding how the city should grow; to struggle with trade-offs; to see the city as a whole instead of in parts and to communicate their values to the General Plan Review Team of what makes a viable place in which to live.

Responses to the Alberta Social Policy Framework Discussion Questions

The Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) welcomes the opportunity to provide these initial responses to the Policy Framework for Alberta Discussion Guide. These responses are based on our organization’s long track record of addressing and proposing solutions to poverty and low income challenges.

Given the very short timeframe in responding to the Discussion Guide, these responses are not intended to be definitive or address all of the areas that will be encompassed by the framework. Our responses focus mainly on the economic dimensions of poverty and low income. Our intent is to focus on practical and affordable solutions that will make a meaningful contribution to poverty reduction in our province.
