Tri-Municipal Partnership Update

Left to right: Reeve Beaupre, Reeve Gervais, Mayor Given

Reeve Gervais was excited to join Reeve Beaupre & Mayor Given at the Growing the North conference on Wednesday to announce the tri-municipal industrial development project which is being developed in Greenview’s Grovedale area. By partnering with the City and County of Grande Prairie we will ensure this initiative will benefit the entire region.

The development area will be shovel ready for global investors at a scale that is larger than any other project of its kind. Utilizing the Montney-Duvernay shale gas play which Greenview is fortunate to be home to, the industrial project will attract value added processing in the petrochemical industry. The area is estimated to be one of the most prolific natural gas plays within North America.

The partnership will ensure the region is well positioned to attract and retain capital investment, with a collaborative approach that ensures skill and resources are leveraged on a regional basis. Taking a proactive approach to large scale industrial investment in Alberta’s north west will mitigate pressures of development and share in future economic growth.

Tri-Municipal Partnership Announcement

On December 23, 2016 we announced a new partnership with the County of Grande Prairie and the City of Grande Prairie. The three municipalities will work together to develop a world class industrial area south of Grande Prairie near Grovedale. Further announcements will take place when the partnership is formalized in 2017.
