1 Urban Development Institute - Calgary 2008 Annual Report Vol. X November 25, 2008

2 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Message from the Executive Director Dear UDI – Calgary Membership: On behalf of the Urban Development Institute – Calgary, I would like to respectfully submit the 2008 year in review. What a year! It began at the same breakneck pace as in previous years, bringing with it the now familiar challenges and opportunities confronting our industry – responding to unprecedented growth pressures and serving the needs of Calgarians. No one could have anticipated the economic shockwave which occurred later in the year and the truly global impact it is having around the world. Having said that, there is no other city which is as well equipped to ride out the difficult times ahead. The development industry will remain a cornerstone of Alberta’s economy and I am confident it will emerge even stronger in the future. The reason for my confidence rests with the UDI membership itself. From the Board of Directors down to the 140 volunteers that keep things moving, UDI – Calgary is very fortunate to enjoy the dedication and expertise of its volunteers. By the same token, UDI – Calgary has worked hard to maintain a strong working relationship with our closest partners at The City of Calgary who benefit greatly from the work of our volunteers. As you will see in the pages of this review, there is a staggering amount of work and coordination occurring with The City. That is not to say there have not been challenges; however, the strength of the relationships is such that solutions are being found to the benefit of all Calgarians.

3 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Message from the Executive Director - continued The work of UDI – Calgary is not confined to the city limits of Calgary. There are committees and members working with our partners in the Municipal District of Rocky View and even further afield. Again, the knowledge and expertise of our membership is being sought out and it is having an impact, particularly with regard to the development of policy. In closing, I would like to thank the UDI – Calgary staff for all of their hard work this past year. They make coming to work each day a pleasure. We are all looking forward to an exciting 2009! Michael Flynn Executive Director

5 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors At the 2007 UDI – Calgary AGM the bylaws were amended to increase the size of the Board of Directors from 9 people to 12, one of which must be a multi-family developer representative. This will enable to Board to better meet the needs of its members, while also allowing for more effective mentorship and succession planning within the Board itself. The following screens provide information on just some of the issues the Board has been working on in the past year.

6 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors Initiatives - Outline and Tentative Plan Approval Process Review In May of 2007, initial meetings began with City Administration to discuss the implementation of the 22 recommendations which were the result of the joint UDI / City of Calgary Outline and Tentative Plan Approval Process Review. Under the new Director of Development and Building Approvals (DBA), Stan Schwartzenberger, there has been a renewed commitment to finalizing the outstanding recommendations. To that end, the Director has appointed Judy Luton, Manager of DBA,to personally oversee the implementation of the recommendations.

7 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors Initiatives - Plan It Calgary Plan It Calgary is the integrated land use and mobility plan project that will develop a long-term plan for Calgary's land use and transportation networks. By mid-2009, the plan will be developed under the 11 sustainability principles that were crafted from imagineCALGARY, City policy and Smart Growth principles. Plan It Calgary will eventually form the next Municipal Development Plan. The UDI – Calgary Board has dedicated considerable resources into working with The City on this exercise. Thus far the we have been able to affect some positive change; however, there is much more work to be done. The most recent success was a motion from City Council which directs City Administration to appoint a UDI representative on an advisory/oversight committee to review drafts of this exercise and provide industry feedback.

8 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors Initiatives - Development Levies This year there were two important developments with regard to levies paid by the industry. The first is that membership benefited from a negotiated compromise reached last year regarding the Community and Recreation Levy rate. It was agreed the rate would be a blend between the Canada-wide Statistics Canada index and that for the city of Calgary, as opposed to using only the city of Calgary rate. This resulted in a substantial reduction of the levy. The other important change concerns the Storm Sewer Acreage Assessments, which are referenced under the Development Agreement Negotiations section of this report. Agreement was reached to adopt a new model consisting of six new catchment areas based on long established watersheds, as opposed to 46 different catchment areas. The new model will be easier to administer and will provide improved accountability and transparency.

9 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors Initiatives - Calgary Regional Partnership The Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP) is made up of 18 municipalities and one First Nation. Together they are collaborating on common regional issues and are planning for growth by creating a regional land use plan. This plan will determine a logical process for the sustainable development of infrastructure, land and community services across the region. UDI – Calgary and been actively involved in several public engagement stakeholder sessions to ensure that Development Industry has input into the future growth of the Calgary region.

10 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors Initiatives - Liaison with Senior City Administration In the past year, UDI Board members have met regularly with the highest levels of City of Calgary management on a variety of issues. Specifically, UDI has been working closely with Water Resources to address delays in the approval of construction drawings. This has resulted in facilitated workshops commissioned by the City Manager, Mr. Owen Tobert. There is optimism that this will result in some much needed process changes, which could be exported to other City departments.

11 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Board of Directors Initiatives - Alberta Land Use Framework The provincial government released its Land Use Framework (LUF) in May The LUF is meant to leave final decision making authority over land-use with the same local authorities that currently exercise it. However, municipalities will be required to comply with the plan in their region (in the case of Calgary – the Calgary Regional Partnership) which in turn must integrate with provincial land-use policies. The UDI Board has appointed two members to the UDI – Alberta task force which is coordinating industry efforts with this initiative.

12 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Development Agreement Negotiations The 2008 Development Agreement was finalized with revisions made to approximately 35 clauses. Michael Roberts played an integral role in the negotiations of both the Development Agreement and Standard Specifications, and was assisted by dedicated volunteers from various committees and task forces including: Technical, Water Management, Pavement and Urban Landscape. In 2008, a Storm Sewer Acreage Assessment Working Committee was established, consisting of members of UDI – Calgary and City Administration to review the previous model, which used 46 different catchment areas. Agreement was reached to adopt a new model consisting of six new catchment areas based on long established watersheds. The new model will be easier to administer and will provide improved accountability and transparency. The levies have been calculated using a forecast of expenditures for projects that will be constructed by The City to accommodate growth. The levies will be used to fund new storm infrastructure required for Greenfield development and will NOT be used to fund retrofit projects. The following are the per hectare levies based on catchment area: o Bow River$ 2,300 o Nose Creek$15,300 o Elbow River$ 200 o Fish Creek$ 200 o Pine Creek$ 3,100 o Shepard$41,200

13 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Development Agreement Negotiations - continued Other key changes made to the 2008 Development Agreement are: Community & Recreation Levy increased to $48,794 Transportation Assessment Levy increased to $63,507 The Developer Funded Infrastructure Stabilization Fund (Oversize Fund) per hectare rates remain unchanged at: o Utilities$ 5,000 o Major Roads$11,800 o Parks$ 5,500 Traffic Signage and Road Marking Assessment Levy remains unchanged at $ Inspection Fees Levy remains unchanged at $2,208 Annual adjustments for the Community & Recreation Levy and the Transportation Assessment Levy are based on the average between the Calgary and Canada, Statistics Canada increases of the non-residential building construction price index. For 2008, these Levies were increased by 13.7%; however, the Transit component of the Community & Recreation Levy was adjusted by 2.1%. A copy of the 2008 Standard Development Agreement is available at under thewww.udicalgary.com “Documents of Interest” tab.

14 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Technical Negotiations Numerous changes were made to the 2008 Water, Sewer, Roads and Landscape Standard Specifications to address issues/deficiencies that were identified by both UDI and The City of Calgary. While the negotiations went reasonably well, problems were encountered with regard to implementation of a few specifications without UDI’s review or approval. UDI identified these specifications and formally requested that The City revoke those where consensus could not be reached. These issues will be addressed during the 2009 negotiations. A detailed listing of all specification changes can be found at the front of each Standard Specification book.

15 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Website This year the staff at UDI – Calgary undertook to update their website which resulted in a number of key changes: Expanded information on “developing a community”, with the ability to "drill down" for more in-depth information if required. Better links to our members and their websites. An area devoted to “committee members” which shows the organizational structure of UDI and a summary of the issues the various committees and task forces are working on. In the “ Members-Only” section, you can see the names of the volunteer members of each committee/task force. More information in a secure password protected area, where members can see documents, reports and technical/information bulletins, which are no longer accessible to the general public. We now have the ability to post committee reports and documents to UDI – Calgary’server, either for distribution to specific committee members (again, these are password-protected for access only by committee members), and we can post reports either for other members or for the general public. Lastly, we have updated our look and feel to be both more visually pleasing and search engine friendlier.

16 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Pavement Task Force As part of the 2008 Technical negotiations for Roads Specifications, the Pavement Task Force consisting of: Chris Plosz, Jim Montgomery, Sandy McIntosh and Charles Kwok addressed a multitude of issues and was able to implement a number of changes to the specs regarding conventional mixes design, lanes & walkways, lighting, clauses pertaining to CCC’s and changes to various sheets/details. UDI continues to work with The City to resolve issues associated with winter paving mix, concrete bus bay construction, transit bus bay design and walkway/emergency access lighting.

17 November 25, Representing the development industry in sustainable growth through partnerships and relationships with all stakeholders. Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report Planning Committee In 2008, the Planning Committee was extremely busy reviewing and providing comment on a multitude of City of Calgary policy documents and initiatives.

A Land Use Bylaw Stakeholder Advisory Committee has been formed and the Planning, Urban Densification and Commercial Committees have been instrumental in achieving several revisions to the Bylaw. It is essential that the Bylaw becomes a well functioning, living and perpetually evolving document; one that can strategically adapt to the city’s changing needs and can accommodate innovative ideas in a timely fashion. UDI is committed to working with The City of Calgary to ensure that this occurs and will continue to advance issues that are of concern to the Development Industry.

Urban Development Institute – Calgary 2008 Annual Report 4 Party Housing Starts Task Force A joint Task Force was established with the Shallow Utilities Consortium, UDI - Calgary and the CHBA – Calgary Region to address safety and productivity issues that arise when house construction and shallow utility installations occur concurrently in residential development projects. Key focus areas include: Safety concerns for all workers on the jobsite Access concerns for the shallow utility construction contractors regarding their utility easements and alignments Negative impact on productivity for the shallow utility contractors, developers and home builders. To address these issues, a pilot project was developed to increase communication and coordination between parties working within the development project. This is achieved through a “joint coordination meeting” to discuss site coordination and safety requirements prior to construction commencing. The discussion is then augmented with additional weekly site meetings as required, in order to highlight the contractor’s construction plan. The pilot projects have been very successful and the Task Force intends to prepare a joint publication in late 2008 to be distributed to all stakeholders, describing the agreed upon meeting process and communication best practices.
