Let’s Talk, Red Deer!

March 22, 2016 1:30 PM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Come have a chat with us on Saturday, April 9, when The City hosts Let’s Talk 2016 at Parkland Mall.

From 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., let’s talk about our city – its identity, its people and its future. Chat with Mayor Veer and your Red Deer City Councillors as well as staff from over 30 City departments and community agencies to find out more about being green, being safe, being active and belonging in our city.

“We want to hear about what’s most important to our citizens,” said Mayor Tara Veer, who will be at Let’s Talk from 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. “This is a great chance to have an open, candid conversation about our City and the services and programs we offer as well as plans for our community’s future.”

This year, there will be plenty of activities for the whole family. Stay in the loop with interactive roundabout education, make every toss count with a new recycling hoop game, plus we’ll be holding a book drive for the new Books on a Bus program, so feel free to bring by some gently used books to help promote literacy on the go. Once you’ve had a chance to explore everything The City has to offer, stop by Council’s booth in the food court to enter in to win a prize.

“We will be showcasing a number of new initiatives including MyCity our new 24/7 online service, the new reloadable MyRide transit cards and Red Deer’s identity narrative which tells the story of our community,” said Julia Harvie-Shemko, Director of Communications & Strategic Planning. “Let’s Talk is all about bringing The City to you.”

A number of community agencies will also be set up at Let’s Talk including 211, Alberta Animal Services, the Red Deer & District SPCA, Tourism Red Deer, Waskasoo Environmental Education Society, the Red Deer Airport, the Red Deer Public Library, the Museum and Art Gallery and the 2019 Canada Winter Games.
