A comprehensive information package outlining progress-to-date, public survey results and guiding principles of the Flagstaff Intermunicipal Partnership (FIP) Regional Governance Initiative is now available to the public in preparation for upcoming community open houses. People are encouraged to read the package to prepare for the open houses.

“A lot of work has taken place over the past six months, and some really good information has made our situation much more clear,” said Bob Coutts, Deputy Mayor of Forestburg and FIP Chair. “It is extremely important for people to have these facts and an informed opinion in advance of the open houses, so we can have a focused conversation on the region’s future.”
Four open houses are confirmed for the Public Engagement Phase of the project:

  • November 1st –Strome Seniors Centre. 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • November 3rd – Alliance Community Hall, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • November 19th – Heisler Seniors Centre, 10 a.m. to 1p.m.
  • November 19th – Hardisty Community Hall, 2 to 5 p.m. 
Members of the public can download the package from or pick a copy up at their local municipal office. If people are unable to attend, feedback can be given through the website as well.

The Flagstaff Communities Collaboration Initiative is exploring creative opportunities through greater regional collaboration. Using input from citizens and community leaders, its goal is to develop a new vision for the region to help it become more successful over the long-term. It is expected to be completed in December 2017.

The Flagstaff Intermunicipal Partnership is a committee comprised of representatives from all municipalities within the Flagstaff Region: the Towns of Daysland, Hardisty, Killam and Sedgewick, the Villages of Alliance, Forestburg, Heisler and Lougheed, and Flagstaff County.
