High River’s Roadmap to 2042 – Town Plan Project Officially Underway
by Town of High River
HIGH RIVER, AB – The Town Plan Project is officially underway as the newly created Town Plan Task Force held its first meeting on March 15. The Town Plan is a vital document required under the Municipal Government Act. It will guide High River's future growth and development for the next 20 years. This plan will define how our Town will look in the future. Once approved, it will provide a roadmap to guide High River's development and future growth from now to 2042.
Five community representatives on the Task Force will work alongside Council members to provide advice and guidance related to community engagement efforts to seek ideas and feedback as the new plan is developed. The Task Force will review all community feedback and lend their expertise to form recommendations for the new Town Plan. A Draft Town Plan is anticipated to be completed for initial review by Council by December 2022.
"Everyone in this community should have the Town Plan on their radar this year," says Mayor Craig Snodgrass. "Residents, businesses, community organizations, developers, school divisions and other interest groups – this is your opportunity to shape our Town's future. Be sure to share your ideas and opinions. Your feedback will help define where we are going and what we want the Town to look like in years to come."
At its February 28 meeting, Council awarded the contract for this project to McElhanney Ltd.
“The consulting firm will assist the Town and the Task Force through each step over the coming year," Mayor Snodgrass added. "Connecting with the community is very important to this Council. We will be tasking the consultants with designing opportunities that inspire everyone in the community to learn more about the Town Plan and contribute to its development.”
Watch for your invitation - coming soon - to share your ideas as we develop the Roadmap to 2042. More information about the Town Plan can be found on the Town's website.
