Arena twinning moves forward

For the ninth year in a row, Blackfalds has displayed above Provincial average growth with an annual population increase of 4.27 per cent in 2017, surpassing Alberta’s average of 1.51%. This significant growth presents a challenge for the new Council who were tasked with prioritizing expenditures at last weekend’s budget deliberations. As a result, the Town is looking to increase taxes by only 1.1 per cent and is excited to move forward on several large-scale capital projects which include (but are not limited to):
Twinning the Multi-Plex Arena architectural design and construction plans ($750K)
Phase 2 of solar integration at the Civic and Culture Centre ($160K)
New outdoor rink at Pine Crecent ($450K)
New playground at Valley Crescent ($125K)
Moving old skateboard park to the East side of town ($40K)
