(Red Deer, Alberta)

Mayor and members of City Council and Provincial Ministers will meet tomorrow in Calgary to discuss the City Council recommended future shelter site for Red Deer. The potential location of the future shelter was planned for public disclosure today; however, provincial feedback for the site has not been finalized.

To accommodate this meeting, today’s Council meeting and shelter item are recessed until Thursday, September 29, 2022, at 9 a.m.

“The province has additional questions about the site being recommended and our meeting tomorrow is to provide the information needed. We know this is a big decision; it took a lot of hard work to get here. At the end of the day, this is a provincial project, and they need to have all the information available to decide whether they will support our recommended site or not,” said Mayor Johnston. 

When Council returns to their meeting on Thursday, City Council expects to be in a position to publicly release the recommended shelter site.
