Final Draft Strategy for Bremner to be presented to Council

September 10, 2014

The final draft growth management strategy for the Bremner area will be presented to Council at the Priorities Committee meeting on September 16, 2014. Members of the public wishing to comment on the final draft are invited to come and share their thoughts at this time.

A recommended concept and draft policy directions were presented to the public at an open house last June. Feedback received from the public was taken into consideration and reflected in the final draft strategy.

A Council decision on whether or not to accept the strategy has been tentatively set for the Council Meeting on September 23, 2014.

For more information, including the finalized draft strategy and actions taken to date, contact the project manager, Janna Widmer, at 780-464-8127.
