Community Partnership Projects


Creating community partnerships together

In September 2011 Strathcona County Council unanimously voted in favour of adopting a new municipal policy to create a systematic approach for building community-based recreation and open space infrastructure. The new approach is done through the Community Partnership Projects (CPP) process.

To maximize use of the County's limited resources, the CPP process has been put into place to assist with responses for new or revitalized infrastructure, evaluating them against projects already identified in the Open Space and Recreation Facility Strategy (OSRFS), any approved Park Master Plans, and 'other' related strategies.

When a group wants to increase the number of amenities, add specialized amenities, or enhance existing infrastructure and open spaces, a partnership may be necessary as it allows the County to enhance service levels beyond what the municipality can do alone.

For greater detail on program specifics, please visit the Community Partnership Projects (CPP) Guidebook and submit an application form.

Planting and landscaping on public property

Do you want to enhance a public open space in your neighbourhood by providing additional plantings or site furniture?

To initiate this process, submit the application form. County staff can assess your request based on need, existing infrastructure (pipelines, utilities, trails), and future planning and upgrades.

Note: If the area is in close proximity to a high pressure pipeline, applications will not be approved.
