Where There’s Room to Grow


Wheatland County Opposed Forced Membership

Wheatland County is opposed to being forced onto the Calgary Region Growth Management Board!

January 17, 2017—Wheatland County—According to the regulation discussion guide prepared by Municipal Affairs, “It is proposed that Growth Management Boards be composed of the large urban municipality (i.e. Calgary or Edmonton), all rural municipalities that are adjacent...”

Wheatland County is not, nor has it ever been, adjacent to Calgary and yet, according to the Alberta Government, it is still being forced into the Calgary Metropolitan Region growth management board.
