Resident Participation & Input

1. McDougal Flats Gravel Pit Future Use Open House

Residents in the McDougal Flats community are invited to join Mountain View County for a future-use visioning session on the County-owned McDougal Flats gravel pit property.

  • When: Tuesday, June 28, 2022
  • Time: 6 PM to 8 PM
  • Where: McDougal Flats Community Centre

County Council is considering a solar power generation proposal for at least 40 acres of the property and is seeking community input on potential uses for the remaining portion of the 80-acre parcel. This open house features a drop-in format and will offer local residents the opportunity to talk with SunAlta Power (the proponents of the solar proposal) and with County representatives; and also the chance to provide your input and suggestion for a potential community amenity/use for the remainder of the property.

When the Provincial Government updated the Municipal Government Act in 2017 it became a requirement that municipalities implement a Public Participation Policy that outlined how municipalities would inform and - where required - actively engage their public.

On June 13, 2018, Mountain View County Council approved Policy #1030 Public Participation.
