Citizens for Responsible Development
C4RD | EDMONTON
Purpose
Citizens for Responsible Development (C4RD) advocates for democratic and responsible development policies and practices in Edmonton’s neighbourhoods.
Goals
To raise public awareness of city development policy.
To increase grassroots participation in city development policy.
To provide leadership to influence development policy through collaborative actions which strengthen neighbourhoods city-wide.
Rationale
City Council has disregarded the public’s concerns about the effects of infill densification.
This damages Council’s relationship with citizens, and damages the integrity of Edmonton’s neighbourhoods.
Individual neighbourhoods and groups have little power to slow or stop Council’s unwise infill agenda. It’s time to join together. Hundreds of communities are affected by the various aspects of infill: Lot-splitting, skinny houses, skinny apartments, housing on surplus school sites, and more. Because infill densification is profit-driven, not planned, some neighbourhoods are being over-built while others are not getting the development they need and want.
Initial Action:  Petition
We are seeking 25,000 signatures on our petition by June 30, 2017.
This will maximize the public’s message to City Council that current infill practices adversely affect Edmonton’s neighbourhoods and the city as a whole.
We will present the petition to City Council before and after the municipal election in October.
We will also present the petition to all candidates running for City Council to establish their positions on city development policy.
What You Can Do
You can assist by signing the petition to send a message to City Council.
You can also assist by sharing the petition with others who might like to sign.
Visit our Willing to Assist page to get in touch and find out how you can help gain support for this work.
Your support is imperative. And the timing is excellent.
City Council has now:
admitted that their infill-densification experiment has been a failure;
recognized that not all neighbourhoods need to be intensified;
indicated that they do not intend to go back and put things right.
The failed experiment will continue, with the addition of a new experiment: Testing high-density housing in a few select neighbourhoods, to be rolled out later over all neighbourhoods.
Now is the time to send Council a message to stop experimenting with Edmonton’s neighbourhoods.
