Media Release: Tri-Municipal Industrial Partnership Takes a Sabbatical

May 7, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tri-Municipal Industrial Partnership Takes a Sabbatical

Greenview Reeve, Dale Smith 2020

For the past 3 years, the collaborative efforts of the MD of Greenview, City of Grande Prairie and County of Grande Prairie had moved the Tri Municipal Industrial Partnership (TMIP) project from an Eco-Industrial District concept to an established Development Area Structure Plan with input and support for regional stakeholders and the Province of Alberta. The goal of the TMIP was envisioned to support local energy diversification projects, thereby strengthening Regional, Provincial and Federal economies.

Current market conditions have negatively impacted the energy sector as well as local businesses. “Greenview Council’s decision to defer resources from the TMIP project is based on current market conditions and Greenview’s commitment to providing a high level of service to its ratepayers, even during this uncertain time of economic instability,” remarked Dale Smith, Reeve for Greenview. “Greenview Council is hopeful that with the stabilization of commodity prices, the project will return to a funding status that will allow for accelerated growth.” (more…)
