Sundre Mayor Recaps Public Information Session On Bighorn Country Proposal

Within about 20 minutes of the doors opening at the Sundre Royal Canadian Legion on Monday, February 4th about 300 interested stakeholders showed up for the public information session on the Alberta government's Bighorn Country proposal. That is according to Sundre Mayor Terry Leslie. However, Mayor Leslie says throughout the process the Alberta government has not had as much consultation with public as they would have certainly expected.

The Mayor of the town of Sundre is expressing gratitude to all of the people who came out to learn about the province's proposed Bighorn Country plan during the public information session held on Monday, February 4th.

Terry Leslie explains what he heard from those who expressed their views while attending the meeting at the Sundre Royal Canadian Legion.

As he explains, spending $40 million dollars over the next few years is one of the town of Sundre's key concerns with the Alberta government's Bighorn Country proposal.

He adds, there are some major infrastructure projects that are far more important to the town of Sundre than something like this.

Mayor Leslie says this week Sundre town council will be considering what steps to take next.

He estimates that within about 20 minutes of the doors opening at the Sundre Legion about 300 interested stakeholders showed up at the Bighorn Country public information session.

For those who were unable to attend any of this month's four rescheduled public information sessions, you can share your views on the Bighorn Country proposal on the Alberta Government's Environment and Parks website via a survey until February 15th.
