Fort Macleod site of consultation on provincial transportation strategy

Fort Macleod residents have a chance next week to shape Alberta’s long-term transportation strategy.
One of a series of public consultation meetings is Monday, Feb. 3 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. at Fort Macleod and District Community Hall.
“This isn’t about local projects or one-off decisions,” Transportation Minister Wayne Drysdale said. “Alberta is taking a forward-thinking approach in developing a strategy that will help secure Alberta’s economic and environmental future over the next 50 years.”
The strategy — which focuses on multiple travel options, connections and ways to move people and products — will provide a vision for Alberta’s transportation system over the next 50 years.
It will also provide an overarching direction to help guide government decisions on transportation investments, policies and programs.
“We want Albertans to help us build a transportation system that makes sense for them and for generations to come,” Drysdale said.
Consultation will take place in two phases.
In Phase 1, Albertans and stakeholders can participate in discussions held in 18 communities.
These discussions will result in the development of the draft strategy that will be made available for review and comment in the second phase of the consultation.
Those not able to attend the discussions are encouraged to learn more about the strategy on-line and can submit questions and comments to transstrategy@gov.ab.ca.
In Phase 2 in April and May, individuals and organizations will be invited to participate in an on-line public consultation on the draft strategy.
Interested parties will also be encouraged to host their own discussions on the draft strategy and resources will be made available to assist them.
Organizers will be asked to submit summaries of these discussions to Alberta Transportation for consideration in the development of the strategy.
