Initiative 6

Balancing Rural & Urban Needs

“I believe that the uniqueness of Strathcona County as a specialized municipality is its core power and strength. In order to continue enjoying the benefits of a specialized municipality with its urban and rural resources, we must ensure a harmony and balance of resident life and business in both urban and rural areas of our municipality.”

In the first 90 days I will:

  1. Request Community League Halls and Ag Societies to work together, as an Alliance, to recommend a new funding formula to keep them open and active. 
  2. Initiate a needs assessment for improved rural infrastructure to build community capacity & size (e.g. connection to water/sewer pipelines.)
  3. Establish a budget and strategy for the cost effective delivery of high speed internet to rural communities businesses and homes.
