On behalf of the Town of Vegreville, Town Council would like to thank everyone for their input regarding the potential sale of Municipal Reserve Lands. Due to the feedback received, the Town will not be following through with the sale of the lands at this time. Town Council appreciate the feedback that was provided and are pleased that we were able to reach out to the community and acquire the much needed responses from the residents.
The Planning & Development Department, along with the Land Use Committee and Town Council have been working diligently, trying to provide the best possible amenities and services for Vegreville residents. The idea to potentially sell off current Municipal Reserve Lands to produce a revenue base for a more diverse recreation plan came up initially as a request was made to purchase some of the MR Lands. And as such, the Land Use Committee was required to discuss the potential sale of these lands, which then sparked a further exploration into the prospective benefits and detriments to the Town.
Again, the Town thanks you for your interest. The feedback received helps the Town ensure that we are meeting the needs and addressing the concerns of all of our residents and assists us going forward. Should you have any questions or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Planning & Development Department at 780-632-6479.
