Moving Forward - Aquatic Facility Expansion
Building High River's future by putting people first and meeting community needs
Building High River's Future - Moving Forward to Expand the Town's Aquatic Facility
At their July 11, 2022 regular meeting of Council, after thoughtful deliberation, Town Council approved a plan to move forward with the Aquatic Facility Expansion along with other upgrades to the Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex. Council noted that the Fall 2021 Aquatic Facility Referendum was non-binding, giving them flexibility to review the results in context with other information.
"The decision comes down to our commitment to putting people first. Council believes the expansion will be a welcome addition to the community that will benefit the Town for years to come. It supports Council's vision to build High River's future based on good stewardship that meets the community's current and future needs." Craig Snodgrass, Mayor of High River

At the July 11 meeting, Council also directed administration to begin looking for a parcel of land to be used for a future new recreational facility as part of the Town’s long range planning. A new facility would be dependent on growth of the Town.
Council will review costs and timing of this major project when they begin their 2023 Budget discussions in fall, 2022. Please check back often as information will be updated on this page, and follow the Town's social media channels for updates.
