CALLING ALL PASSIONATE YOUTH WHO ARE INTERESTED IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Vegreville & District Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) & the Vegreville Rotary Club have an exceptional opportunity for youth who are interested in making a change in their community and want to learn the skills needed to make it happen!
This new program is called Youth Making A Change (YMAC) and there are only 12 spots available! We are looking for youth in grades of 10-12 who are interested in partnering with others in the community and are passionate about making a difference. Members will be required to demonstrate a combination of experience and interests with the following topics: volunteerism, leadership, community development, and community engagement.
The Vegreville Rotary Club and Vegreville &District FCSS got together to create a program that elevates youth voices, and gives them the opportunity to contribute to community programming, while providing young people with a unique opportunity to be the drivers of their own ideas from conceptualization to implementation.
So what does this program look like? There are four components. Step 1 is to take part in interactive sessions which are designed to give youth the skills and tools they need to be successful. Step 2 is when youth are matched with a non-profit board to put their skills into practice. Step 3 brings the youth back together to address a community topic that is important to them. Step 4 allows YMAC members to blog about their experiences. The time requirement, per month, is up to 5 hours and the project runs from Oct 31 to June 5, 2017.
We all are to encourage a youth whom you feel would be perfect for this new and exciting opportunity.

75th Street Area Structure Plan
The 75 Street Area Structure Plan describes potential highway commercial, service commercial and light industrial development on the previously unsubdivided portion of the SW-24-52-15-w4th. The parcel lies in the south west part of the Town of Vegreville. It is bounded on the north by municipal utility facilities (storm water ponds, water pump house) and a developed commercial area, all south of Highway 16A. The property to the west, across 75th Street, is occupied by Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures, a provincial government organization operating research facilities for the agricultural, environmental, and energy sectors. To the south and south west are agricultural lands, with pasture lands immediately across 55th Avenue (the municipal boundary), and a farmstead 300m south west. Immediately east of the parcel are an industrial storage yard and commercial developments. The objective of the ASP is to provide a plan for highway commercial, service commercial and light industrial sites in keeping with the Town’s Municipal Development Plan to compliment adjacent existing development and meet demand.
