RMWB Holding Flood Mitigation Townhall on Monday Night

You’re getting an opportunity to voice your thoughts on how the municipality should proceed with flood mitigation.

The RMWB is holding a townhall on Monday giving residents an opportunity to speak before a decision is expected next week.

They are currently considering buyouts for Draper, Ptarmigan Court, and the section of Waterways below 250 metres, while downtown and Taiga Nova Eco-Industrial Park would continue to see flood mitigation work with restrictions on future development.

Mayor Don Scott, Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Matthew Hough, and other municipal representatives will be on hand.

“Our primary aim in this community conversation on flood risk is to increase community resilience – to make this a safer place when the next flood hits,” said Hough. “Community resilience is only possible with community support.”

The townhall gets underway at 6:10.

Those who’ve registered will be able to ask questions over the phone, while the rest of the community can listen online and submit written questions.

Those who are having trouble connecting can call 1-800-214-2540 or email [email protected] for instructions.
