On Tuesday July 25th, 2017 it looks like the amended Glenbow Ranch Area Structure plan will be fully passed by the County Council. Administration is recommending that the amended plan be approved. At the at July 11, 2017 meeting I was grateful for the strong support from Council for my amendments. The amendments were in response to what we heard from local residents at the public hearing and included lowering the density of potential development in two areas .
This is another example of how working with and listening to the community results in better outcomes that can be more broadly supported. Thank you to Michael O'Krancy, from the Bearspaw Village Area and Al Vanderputten and Hans Hirschmanner from Upper Bearspaw who all helped me to coordinate meetings with large numbers of the local residents. At these meetings I was able to explain some of the details of the plan and my perspective. I was also able to discuss and hear the priorities of the people adjacent to the plan area. This community engagement is greatly appreciated as it helps me to represent and serve the people of our community more effectively.
