Report pitches bigger, better Heritage Ranch

Bigger and better are the operative words behind a report discussing the future of Heritage Ranch.

Bigger and better are the operative words behind a report discussing the future of Heritage Ranch.

On Monday, Red Deer city council will review a report that recommends expanding and improving facilities at the site, including the visitors’ centre, on-site managers residence and trail amenities.

Also high on the day’s priorities are discussions of commercial sites in the East Hill area. Council will review a staff recommendation that the city spend $75,000 on a study looking at creation of the East Hill Town Centre and its potential impact on commercial areas elsewhere in the city.

Council also has to deal with a number of bylaws brought forward from previous meetings.

Public hearings are set for 6 p.m. to deal with the off-leash dog park and revisions to land uses in Riverside park, with second and final readings of those bylaws to follow.

Also up for second and final readings are bylaws dealing with the historical designation of St. Luke’s Anglican Church and the North Cottage School and off-site levy rates for 2009.

Public hearings pertaining to both were held at an earlier meeting.
