Alberta Transportation is beginning the process of developing a fifty-year transportation strategy. The first phase of the process involves holding eighteen community discussions across the province throughout late January and February. These discussions will provide an opportunity for Albertans to weigh in on what they see as the province’s long-term transportation priorities. For AAMDC members, these priorities may include stable long-term funding for rural transportation infrastructure maintenance and improvements.

The dates and locations of the eighteen sessions are as follows:

§  St. Paul, January 28

§  Lloydminster, January 29

§  Fort McMurray, January 30

§  Fort MacLeod, February 3

§  Lethbridge, February 4

§  Medicine Hat, February 5

§  Drumheller, February 6

§  Bassano, February 7

§  High Level, February 10

 

§  Peace River, February 11

§  Grande Prairie, February 12

§  Hinton, February 13

§  Edmonton, February 18

§  Calgary, February 19

§  Red Deer, February 20

§  Cochrane, February 25

§  Rocky Mountain House, February 26

§  Slave Lake, February 27

The province is also encouraging other parties to hold their own discussions, the results of which can be submitted to Alberta Transportation. Additionally, online public consultations will take place in April and May. For more information on the consultations, click here. For more information on the strategy, click here. The AAMDC has recently produced several reports on various issues related to transportation, including high speed rail, highway funding, and rural transportation infrastructure construction. These reports may assist members in framing a perspective on Alberta’s transportation future. To access the AAMDC’s reports, click here.
