There are two main issues in this Ward. The first is infrastructure. The fire halls and EMS stations in west Edmonton are closer to the east side of the Ward and therefore response times to the west side are high. The second issue is the possibility of the LRT expanding to the area. While it could benefit the Ward, it could also run into issues because of the older neighbourhoods possibly in the way of the line.
