Council Approves a Call for Nominations to form Committee to conduct review
High River AB – At its January 27, 2020 meeting, High River Town Council approved the formation of a Steering Committee to undertake a preliminary review of the current Town Plan. The committee will work together to bring recommendations to Council to update this important document.
High River’s Town Plan is a key document that helps guide ongoing decisions related to current and future development. It is a requirement under the Municipal Government Act that every municipality will have a development plan that is updated regularly. The current Town Plan was last updated in 2013.
“Members of the Steering Committee will work together to review the existing plan. It is important that an updated version aligns with such things as our long-term vision, policies, priorities and financial strategy,” said Mayor Craig Snodgrass. “The committee’s final report will reflect collaboration between Council, staff, youth and community representatives. We anticipate the recommendations they present to Council will incorporate sound and creative suggestions that will benefit the Town now and in the future.”
Along with the Mayor and three Council representatives, the Town is seeking three members at large from the community and a representative from High River’s Youth Advisory Committee to assist with the review. Individuals with experience or an interest in such things as planning, development, land use, municipal development, downtown redevelopment and growth management strategies are strongly encouraged to put their names forward. Three members at large will be appointed by Council following a review of applications.
Details and the Call for Nominations will be posted on the Town’s website and will be advertised in local media. Questions can be directed to the Town’s Planning and Development Services by calling 403-652-2110 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
