Statement from Mayor Patricia Matthews regarding Chestermere’s appeal of the Conrich ASP

The Municipal Government Board (MGB) has made its decision regarding Chestermere’s appeal of the Conrich Area Structure Plan (ASP) . They have chosen to allow Rocky View County to proceed as planned.

While we respect the process the MGB took to listen to our community’s concerns, we are disheartened with their decision. We recognize that municipalities have the right to plan for their communities, but we are disappointed that the ASP doesn’t consider the adverse effect it will have on surrounding communities. We worry that the detrimental impacts identified in the appeal, including risks to wetlands and stormwater, transportation, social support and economic development will negatively affect Chestermere and the region.

We will continue to work diligently to protect the best interests of Chestermere residents and are exploring all legal options to do that.

The City has always believed a regional approach to development is necessary and has actively pursued collaboration with Rocky View for many years. We have been working on an Inter-municipal Development Plan since 2010 to establish a “good neighbour” agreement, which was Chestermere’s primary focus and request throughout this appeal. Chestermere actively takes a regional approach to planning through the Calgary Regional Partnership and while we haven’t seen participation from Rocky View County in the past, we are glad to know that they are now open to such collaboration moving forward.

We’re interested in Rocky View County’s offer to work together in a spirit of co-operation and respect. We hope to find mutually beneficial commercial development solutions that don’t burden our residents or sacrifice our community’s well-being. We also look forward to continuing to collaborate on a number of other regional items, including watershed protection, transportation, emergency services, recreation and education.

Mayor Patricia Matthews
