Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan mayors respond to province’s approval of uncontested annexation

Posted on Wednesday, December 04, 2019 01:00 PM

We are pleased to share the Government of Alberta has approved the negotiated annexation agreed to by Strathcona County and City of Fort Saskatchewan councils just over one year ago. This is good news for both our communities.

By choosing to collaborate, we have addressed regional growth pressures, while saving both our communities time and money. We have put our collective energies toward lessening the impact on residents in the annexation area, on exploring opportunities to integrate services, and...

Don and Trina Lawrence | Pineview

Don and Trina are Mr. and Mrs. Halloween. They put their heart and soul and hours and hours of their time into putting on Howll’een Manor each year.

Their enthusiasm inspires neighbours to get involved and everyone in the neighbourhood enjoys the ambience and scares for Halloween. They even have a daytime “no scare” walk through for adults and small children to...

In all seriousness, the roundabout will provide a smooth transition for traffic as the...

Kath | Pineview

This was an amazing example of community collaboration and neighbours coming together to assist those in need. In addition to being the President of the Fort Saskatchewan Furniture Bank, Kath has been reaching out and working with owners, tenants, the condominium management company, and other...
