October 14, 2020 Update

Community engagement about flood risk is continuing with property owners in Waterways, Ptarmigan Court and Draper.

  • Visits to properties in Waterways below 250.9 m will began last week
  • Visits to properties in Ptarmigan Court will start this week
  • Visits to properties in Draper below 250.9 m will start later in October

“It’s our goal to engage one-on-one with property owners in Ptarmigan Court, as well as property owners below 250.9 m in Waterways and Draper before December,” said Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Matthew Hough. “We are appreciative of the many residents that have already participated in engagement. We need as much dialogue as possible for our next update to Council, so we encourage all property owners to participate.”

All property and land owners in Ptarmigan Court as well as owners below 250.9 m in Waterways and Draper should call or email Pulse at 780-743-7000 or pulse@rmwb.ca to validate contact information and schedule a one-on-one engagement.

One-on-ones can occur in-person, over the phone or electronically.
