Opportunity for buyouts or raising homes in Ptarmigan Court is open

Property owners in Ptarmigan Court are asked to call in or email to state their interest for a property buyout or raising their home as part of the flood recovery process. Direction to move ahead on these two options was provided at the December 15, 2020 Council meeting.

Property buyout

Property owners may email pulse@rmwb.ca or call Pulse at 780-743-7000 for more information and to start the process. Buyouts are authorized at the 2020 assessed value, which are available on the website.

Raising homes

Property owners who do not choose the buyout may express interest in a grant program to raise their residence instead. The proposed grant program, including potential funding opportunities, will be presented for Council consideration at a later date.

Email pulse@rmwb.ca or call Pulse at 780-743-7000 to begin the process. The same deadline of May 31, 2021 applies.

Temporary mitigation

Temporary flood barriers will be placed in the Ptarmigan Court area prior to river breakup this year. Beyond 2021, no flood mitigation is currently planned.

More information is available at rmwb.ca/recovery.
