Open House

What:Southwest Resource Road Functional Planning Study
When:Thursday, May 3rd - from 4:00 to 8:00pm
Where:Holiday Inn (9816 - 107th Street) Grande Prairie

Why: The province has been planning what is essentially a southwest bypass route for the city. It will go from highway 43 south and connect with highway 40. It has been mentioned in the media and many residents have raised concerns about the possible destruction of the Wapiti Nordic Ski trails. This is everyone's chance to make sure that the planning of this bypass route takes into account the need to protect this sensitive natural area and communit asset.

Last time we saw the new Minister of Infrastructure I told him about the concerns and asked him to take these into account. The City's 50 year growth plan actually suggests intersection at the same point on highway 43 but going straight south accross the river with a new bridge instead of bending back to meet highway 40. That little bidge already sees too much traffic adding an additional one only makes sense.

So, pass it on to anyone you know who might be interested and get out there on May 3rd!
