On September 29 and 30, 2016, the City of Chestermere hosted this fall’s Alberta Mid-Size Cities Mayors’ Caucus; a meeting of municipalities that represent urban centres throughout the province with populations over 15,000. The Caucus, serving a total population of close to a million people, meets twice a year to share best practices, identify common concerns to the Province as one voice, and support one another with municipal learnings.

“This is the first time Chestermere has hosted the Caucus,” said Mayor Matthews. “We were thrilled to show off our beautiful community, and also engage in constructive dialogue with other municipalities, benefit from the wisdom of those who have experienced similar growth challenges, and share learnings amongst our peers.”

On Thursday evening, Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister, Danielle Larivee, spoke about progress on revisions to the Municipal Government Act. On Friday there were presentations from Brian Mason, Alberta Minister of Infrastructure and Transportation, as well as Alberta Senator Doug Black.

Mayor Matthews said Senator Black’s participation in this event helps raise awareness of Alberta’s community challenges on a national level. “It's encouraging to have another voice available to our group federally."

Following the official program, City officials offered tours of Chestermere. “We were proud to showcase our growing city’s lakeside amenities, commercial developments, new and established residential communities, and emergency services facilities,” said Randy Patrick, CAO.

Chestermere hosted 22 municipalities including Airdrie, Beaumont, Brooks, Camrose, Cochrane, Cold Lake, Fort Saskatchewan, Grand Prairie, Lacombe, Leduc, Lethbridge, Lloydminster, Medicine Hat, Okotoks, Red Deer, St Albert, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, Strathcona County, Wetaskiwin, and Wood Buffalo.
