Title:    C-1045-18 – First Reading – Surface Drainage Bylaw – Levasseur
Department: Planning & Infrastructure  
Strategic Vision Element: Where People Choose to Live - A dynamic city with an exceptional quality of life Related Goal: Citizens consistently express high levels of satisfaction with municipal services.

Request for Decision Summary
The purpose for this request for decision is to obtain first reading of Bylaw C-1045-18 that would provide for the ongoing operation of the City’s lot grading program. This new bylaw is intended to replace Bylaw C-903-15.

Proposed Motion
That first reading be given to Bylaw C-1045-18 Surface Drainage Bylaw.
In 2017, Engineering did an in depth review of the City’s Lot Grading program. As a result, numerous deficiencies were identified within the existing lot grading program. It was also noted that the existing bylaw did not reflect current procedures and practices. A thorough comparison of surrounding municipalities was ensued in order to capture best practices for all surface drainage.  The result was two-fold:
  1. to create a new bylaw that encompasses all surface drainage within the city
  2. ensure the protection of City infrastructure during construction of residential, commercial, or multi-family development.
The process included involving Canadian Home Builders Association (CHBA)-Edmonton and Spruce Grove home builders.
This bylaw was developed as a result of the cooperation between Public Works and Planning and Engineering. A draft version was reviewed by the CHBA-Edmonton.
The new Bylaw C-1045-18 will require changes to the Development Fees and Charges bylaw. 
The Surface Drainage Bylaw will provide direction for the ongoing administration and operation of the lot grading program while ensuring the protection of City infrastructure during construction of residential, commercial, or multi-family development.
