New Residents Welcomed to High River
In February 2021, High River's Mayor and staff welcomed new residents to the Town of High River, following annexations that came into effect on January 1st, 2021. The long-planned annexations included properties on 112th Street East and in the Red Tail Rise subdivision. These areas are now included within the Town's boundaries. During a virtual welcome meeting, these residents were provided with key information to help them become familiar with Town staff, council, organizational processes, and community support resources.
