Whereas we are constantly being told that greenfield development is unsustainable and that we need to accelerate and incentivize redevelopment as a priority over greenfield to achieve greater sustainability.
Whereas the City of Calgary through the taxation process knows how much revenue every single residential and non-residential property generates on an annual basis.
Whereas the City Clerks has detailed information on which properties fall within each community.
Whereas through our annual budgeting process we should be able to make assumptions on the cost to deliver services in each individual community.
