The City of Edmonton invites residents’ input into projects, policies and initiatives that grow our communities, establish government services and prepare our city for the future. Below are current opportunities for Edmontonians to shape their city.
Defining what Edmonton will look like in the future:
- The Independent Council Compensation Committee invites members of the public to provide their thoughts about the pay levels and benefits for the next City Council, elected in 2021. The citizen-led committee will use the feedback to inform their recommendation, which will help attract a diverse range of candidates for Council. The survey is available at edmonton.ca/surveys until July 27. For more information on the mandate of the committee, visit edmonton.ca/iccc.
- Members of the Insight Community are invited to provide input about their likelihood of using transit, their perceptions, and their expectations of transit. The feedback will be used to help further Edmonton Transit Service customer service levels and improve customer experience. The survey is available to the members of the Insight Community until July 8. For information, visit edmonton.ca/insight.
