Tri-Municipal Partnership brings new era of opportunity for Greenview
A new agreement between Greenview, the County and City of Grande Prairie and the Alberta government heralds a new era of economic opportunity in the region and the promise of a more sustainable future for residents and business alike.
Reeve Dale Smith joined Reeve Leanne Beaupre, Mayor Bill Givens and Alberta Environment and Parks Minister, Jason Nixon, Feb. 10 in Grande Prairie for the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU), launching the first phase of the Tri-Municipal Industrial Partnership (TMIP).
Three years in the making, the TMIP MOU will help coordinate the efforts of partners to the agreement toward the establishment of a world-class Eco-industrial District within the boundaries of Greenview. Located on the Montney Formation, one of North America’s largest conventional gas formations, the district will serve as a global energy and petrochemical-manufacturing hub. The agreement emphasizes economic diversification beyond resource extraction through investment in a regional value-added sector, supporting the creation of long-term employment growth and opportunities for residents, Indigenous communities, and businesses.
