Safer McCauley Mini-Update
A Safer McCauley Community Conversation in May 2019 kickstarted a series of developments leading to a shift in the city’s approach to problem properties. The Problem Properties Initiative team has met several times with a group of community members to better understand their concerns and collect input on how to more effectively deal with problem properties. The team has reviewed its practices and developed a new, more aggressive action plan. Administration will present the plan to City Council’s Urban Planning Committee on March 16. It will be publicly available two weeks prior.
A confidential online problem property reporting form is now available: https://www.edmonton.ca/residential_neighbourhoods/report-a-problem-property.aspx
