Interested in development along Hwy 27


Sundre’s administration met with Alberta Transportation representatives to discuss matters that affect the community locally and regionally, council heard recently.

Linda Nelson, the municipality’s chief administrative officer, outlined some highlights of that discussion during A Dec. 11 meeting, and said that Mountain View County reeve Bruce Beattie as well as county councillor Angela Aalbers also attended the session with Alberta Transportation.

“The first topic discussed was access points along Highway 27,” said Nelson, offering as additional background that the town’s administration has been approached by developers that have expressed interested in developing along that corridor, which is under the provincial government’s control.

“Alberta Transportation has agreed to meet with administration to discuss options for access to the highway, recognizing that we are dealing with a provincial highway, but in an urban context.”
