What's New?

There's always lots going on in our County.  Here are some issues that affect us all.

April 22, 2018

We were one of the many groups and individuals who participated in two focus group sessions to provide input to the new Council for its work on a new Strategic Plan for the County.  It was refreshing that the new Council asked to look beyond its own walls for input int...

April 11, 2018

We spent much of the spring working with our sister organization, Rocky View Gravel Watch.  The County released a “revised” Aggregate Resource Plan (ARP) in February – the quotations are intentional since Administration ignored almost all of the overwhelming public inp...

In February 2018, the new Council approved moving ahead with a municipal voters’ list.  On the urging of Administration, they agreed to delay the start of the process until October 2019.  This will still give the County lots of time to have a voters’ list ready for the...

At its June 27th meeting, the Council majority sunk to an all-time low in terms of shameful behaviour.  Attending Council meetings on a regular basis leaves one somewhat jaded – but, they managed to far exceed even our expectations for depravity....

I believe Rocky View County is being disingenuous in portraying the Municipal Government Board's (MGB) resolution of the appeals against the Concrich ASP as an unmititgated victory for the county. They are emphasizing the dismissal of Chestermere's appeal, but ignoring...

On June 13th, at the same time as Rocky View Council approved a delay to the Aggregate Resource Plan, it opened the flood gates for gravel applications to rush through under what they acknowledge are weak existing performance standards. This means residents must be ext...
