Cochrane Town Council is planning for the future of Cochrane and looking to the community for input.
Over the past few months, Council has been working on developing the Cochrane Community Vision — a vision to guide the community into the future.
“Our Town and region has seen significant growth and we are all feeling the impacts,” said Mayor Jeff Genung. “A clear vision gives us a foundation to make community decisions and create our desired future.”
Council began building a long-term vision for Cochrane in February. The draft Cochrane Community Vision was presented at the Council meeting April 23, where Administration was directed to engage in public consultation.
The community is invited to share their feedback:
“As our community and the region continue to evolve, it is increasingly important that we provide ongoing attention and stewardship to those things that matter most to us,” added Genung. “Council wants to know what matters most to our community.”
Following the community engagement process, the Cochrane Community Vision will be presented to the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB). The CMRB consists of representatives from 10 municipalities mandated to develop a long-term plan for managed, sustained growth in the Calgary region. The CMRB was officially established in January 2018 and is the first provincially mandated growth management board for the region.
