LINDEN COMMUNITY DISCOVERY NIGHT

Linden Community Discovery Night has been cancelled for 2024.

Did you know that the Village of Linden has undertaken projects over the past few years to help prompt development?

The Master Infrastructure Plan was completed to provide information on the condition of our underground infrastructure: sanitary, water distribution, storm, etc. This study helps in the decision making when planning for our capital projects. It also helps us to prepare our existing infrastructure for the addition of any infrastructure as a result of new development. The Village has also been spearheading an Area Structure Plan for the area North of Central Avenue. The ASP requires input and studies to be completed and approved by Alberta Transportation and Alberta Environment. These are typically completed by the Developer. In order to attract Developers and reduce red tape, the Village Council made the decision to take this step forward. We are committed to encouraging development within our community.

Our Capital Projects are being completed in order to maintain and improve our underground infrastructure. We have been working on pumphouse upgrades, maintenance of our sanitary trunk lines, CIPP lining on wastewater lines, reservoir maintenance and a hydrant program to name just a few. In addition, we have updated our Municipal Development Plan and most recently the Land Use Bylaw with the goal of reducing red tape and encouraging development with less restrictions. Consultation with stakeholders and our residents has been invaluable and we thank you. We continue to work diligently for you, the residents.
