Leduc County Coalition

Pipestone Flyer

A new organization has recently been formed by a group of Leduc County business owners, landowners and residents that are committed to fighting to save Leduc County from Edmonton’s proposed annexation. They are committed to “Growing Together for Alberta’s future” and want the City of Edmonton to return to the collaborative process of working with the county to achieve a solution that is beneficial for the entire region.

    Leduc County has encouraged the City of Edmonton to set aside its recent proposal in favour of returning to the collaborative process, which began in April 2012, when Leduc County and the City of Edmonton signed a letter of intent outlining a collaborative process the two municipalities would engage in to coordinate growth.

    Leduc County has a proud history of working with its regional partners, including the cities of Edmonton and Leduc, the towns of Devon, Beaumont , Calmar and the Village of Thorsby.

    Leduc County shares the vision of the provincial government that collaborative solutions are key to the success of municipalities. The province demonstrated its support for this vision by recently increasing grant funding for regional collaboration.

    The Leduc County Coalition has established a website: http://saveleduccounty.com that is designed to provide information and an opportunity to support the Coalition’s stand against the proposed annexation.

    The Coalition’s website also provides businesses, groups, and individuals an opportunity to sign a petition to the Alberta Municipal Government Board in support of not approving the City of Edmonton’s proposed annexation of 38,000 acres of prime Leduc County land.

    The Leduc County Coalition is in the final stages of hosting an Open House on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. It will be held at the Ritchie Bros Auction Center’s Auditorium located at 1500 Sparrow Dr.  Nisku.

    The Open House will begin at 5:30pm with a reception and a meet and greet opportunity. Beginning at 6pm a representative from Leduc County Council and three guest speakers will present information concerning the proposed annexation and this will be followed by a question and answer period.

    The Open House will be an excellent opportunity to come on out and meet the folks behind the Coalition and voice your concerns about the City of Edmonton annexation plans
