Annexation Meetings

Pipestone Flyer

    We may not be too sure when Old Man Winter is going to release his grip on us, but this spring we can be sure that meetings about annexation proposals will be popping up all over Leduc County.

    First the City of Edmonton has established a number of information meetings for residents throughout the month of April.  The City would like to keep the meetings to small groups of 25 people to ensure a more intimate exchange of information. The meetings will begin on Thursday, April 10th when two sessions will be held at the Nisku Rec Center. The first session begins at 3pm to 5pm and the second starting at 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Then two sessions will be held at the Rabbit Hill Baptist Church. The first on Monday, April 14th and the second on Wednesday, April 23rd. Both begin at 6:30pm and end two hours later. On Monday, April 28th the City returns to the Nisku Rec Center for their last planned session beginning at 6:30pm.

    The County of Leduc has also arranged for a series of information meetings in April. The first was held at the Nisku rec Center on Wednesday, April 2nd with future meetings being held throughout the county. On Thursday, April 17th at the Glen Park Community Hall, then on Wednesday, April 23rd at the Sunnybrook Community Hall with the final on Tuesday, April 29th at the Rolly View Community Hall. The Open Houses will start at 6pm with presentations at 7pm.

    Meanwhile the Leduc County Coalition will host their own Open House on Tuesday, April 15th. The Open House will be held in the auditorium of the Richie Bros. Auction Center beginning at 5:30pm. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet and greet the guest speakers, which will include a representative from the Leduc County Council and then participate in a Question & Answer session.

    The Leduc County Coalition is an organization that was formed to support the Saving Leduc County from annexation. Many of the businesses that have developed their companies in Leduc and private landowners have joined the Coalition to ensure that all residents have the information on how Edmonton’s annexation proposal would affect them if it were to be successful. 

    In the meantime the County and the Town of Devon has announced a joint Open House meeting to be held on Wednesday, April 16th at the Devon Community Centre’s main hall to address any questions residents may have regarding Devon’s proposed annexation of Leduc County lands on the eastern boundary of Devon.
