Transportation Committee to receive $27,000 transfer for regional transportation master plan

Toni Lucas

During the regular meeting of Pincher Creek Town Council on Monday, April 13 council approved a request to transfer the remaining funds from the 2011 Regional Collaboration Grant, which was used for a Regional Services Feasibility Study, to the Transportation Committee for use towards the development of a regional transportation master plan. There is still approximately $27,000 of those funds left. Any unused funds are to be returned to the Alberta Municipal Affairs after December 31, 2015.

The grant money was originally obtained in November of 2011, for a feasibility study of regional partnership and service sharing opportunities that was conducted by McElhanney consulting services. The funding was provided by the Province of Alberta as part of the Regional Collaboration Grant. The four municipalities included in the regional partnership were the Municipality of the Crowsnest Pass, the Town of Pincher Creek, the Municipal District of Pincher Creek and the Village of Cowley.

In 2014 the creation of a regional transportation initiative was spearheaded by the Town of Pincher Creek. The transportation committee is requesting that the remainder of the regional collaboration grant, the sum of approximately $27,000 be forwarded to the transportation committee to be used towards the creation of a regional Transportation Master Plan.
