Employees from the first of several City of Red Deer departments are moving into their new $118-million digs.
The Parks Department started this past weekend on their moving chores to the new civic yards, Development Services Department director Paul Goranson said on Monday.
The moving process will carry on department by department for the next several weeks as Public Works, Environmental Services, Transit, Materials Management, Electric Light and Power and Ecological Services relocates from the west downtown Riverlands area to the new site near Three Mile Bend Recreation Area.
Environmental Services will follow on April 6. Electric Light and Power will make its move to the site on April 13; Public Works will move on April 20. Red Deer Transit and Material Management will take up residence in the new home at the end of April.
Goranson said each department packs up its goods and files on the Friday for transport on the weekend.
The workers then start unpacking on Monday.
More than 500 employees will eventually work at the new site.
