Central Alberta landowners who have something to say about their property rights will have their chance on Jan. 11, when Alberta’s new property rights task force will hold meetings in both Olds and Rocky Mountain House.
The meetings are part of 10 sessions being held across Alberta in January and are designed to give the Government of Alberta a better idea of landowner rights and concerns.
The task force was created last month by Premier Alison Redford and is chaired by Diana McQueen, minister of Environment and Water.
“We are committed to being better listeners, and are looking for common-sense input on property rights issues that will help us do a better job for Albertans,” McQueen explained in a statement.
The meeting in Olds will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and in Rocky Mountain House from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Although optional, participants are encouraged to register at environment.alberta.ca/03831.html.
If unable to attend the community sessions, Albertans can also provide input by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling toll free at 310-4455, no area code necessary.
