June 15, 2021: Ptarmigan Court Home Raising Program Homeowner Guide

Following Council’s direction in December 2020, the Municipality began offering voluntary buyouts to all Ptarmigan Court property owners at the 2020 assessed property value and last month Council approved the Ptarmigan Court Home Raising Program. Today, we are sharing the details of this Program.

Click here to view the Homeowners Guide, which provides further information and specific details on the Program.

Please note that the current deadline for the Ptarmigan Court buyout program was May 31, 2021 and the deadline to opt into the Ptarmigan Court Home Raising Program is June 30, 2021. These deadlines are currently in effect, however recognizing the needs of property owners, Administration will be seeking an extension from Council on June 8, 2021 to extend the deadline for both programs to July 30, 2021. Should Council approve the deadline extension, we will notify residents to provide an update on any decisions made during the public meeting.

If residents are interested in more details regarding the Home Raising Program, please email recovery@rmwb.ca to schedule a pre-application meeting with RMWB staff.

Reminder that the Municipality has partnered with the Government of Alberta and the Canadian Red Cross to offer additional guidance. Residents may contact the Red Cross directly for more information by calling 1-800-863-6582, Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. or email: albertadrphelp@redcross.ca. Email is the quickest way to reach the support team, but both options are available to you. Please note: the Red Cross can assist residents regardless of their claims or interactions with the provincial government’s Disaster Recovery Program (DRP).

Should you have any questions regarding the buyout or raising structures grant program, you are also welcome to contact the Municipality directly at recovery@rmwb.ca, pulse@rmwb.ca or by calling Pulse at 780-743-7000.
