    13. Direct that the primary focus of the Green Line Committee shift to planning for Stage 2 of the Green Line (the balance of 160 Avenue N to Seton) with an emphasis on North Central Calgary and the creation of a flexible and convertible mobility corridor in preparation for LRT that accommodates BRT and transit-on-demand as interim options until full funding for LRT can be secured, as well as the process of LRT and Transit- Oriented Development planning, with the goal of improving transit in North Central Calgary in the short and long term.

    That with respect to Notice of Motion PFC2020-0666, the following be adopted:

    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT COUNCIL endorse proposal of the following resolution to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, and by doing so reaffirm its support for the development of Province-wide Extended Producer Responsibility Legislation:

    WHEREAS Alberta faces unprecedented short and medium term economic challenges caused mainly by blocked access for oil to markets, the volatility of markets for fossil fuels, and the current COVID-19 threat;

    AND WHEREAS without the ability possessed by other levels of government to repay borrowed funds over a long period of time, municipalities face a unique challenge when attempting to provide tax/rate relief without sacrificing services that might prevent further economic hardship, or contribute to economic recovery;

    AND WHEREAS moving forward, fiscal restraint and tax relief will be critical as other levels of government contend with the debt they have incurred to deal with the COVID-19 threat;

    AND WHEREAS extended producer responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach that places the financial and/or physical responsibility for end of life management of products with the companies that produce those products, and would remove the financial burden for recycling programs from ratepayers and/or taxpayers;

    AND WHEREAS under EPR municipalities realize extensive savings due to reduced responsibility for managing paper and packaging products at end of life;

    AND WHEREAS a recent study conducted by the AUMA, the City of Calgary, the City of Edmonton, and industry partners has estimated adoption of Province-wide EPR legislation would result in $105 million in savings to municipalities annually;

    AND WHEREAS these savings would be realized in a way that does not pose a risk to the quality or level of waste management services provided to Albertans, and in some circumstances would perhaps even increase it;

    AND WHEREAS thirty-five Albertan municipalities (including Calgary and Edmonton)—representing the vast majority of Albertans—have individually expressed their support for moving forward with Provincial EPR legislation by way of motion, letter of support, etc.;

    AND WHEREAS the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association and the Rural Municipalities Association have both endorsed official resolutions calling on the Provincial Government to enact EPR Packaging and Paper Recycling legislation.

    IT IS THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT should the Government of Alberta adopt EPR legislation, every member municipality shall do everything in its power to pass any and all savings directly back to taxpaying and/or ratepaying Albertans.

    MOTION CARRIED

On April 16th, 2007 Council approved the Rivers District Community Revitalization Plan. Part of this plan included the Rivers Community Revitalization Levy (CRL) initiative. This Levy enabled the City of Calgary to make up front infrastructure investments in the Rivers District and collect the money back from properties in the area over a 20 year period from 2009 to 2028. In December 2018, City Council approved a 20 year extension to the original agreement extending it to 2047.

This front-end borrowing plan anticipated a “ROBUST ECONOMY WITH INCREASING PROPERTY TAX VALUE”, and also a “RAPID BUILD OUT OF THE PLANNED AREA” to enable the proper revenue generated by the CRL to be able to repay the initial amount. Considering changes in economic forecasting, is this CRL funding model still able to provide stable funding from 2009 to 2047 as originally intended?
