Council Highlights – February 13, 2024

Valleyview, Alberta

Greenview Approves the Sale of Municipal Lot in Grande Cache
A proposal has been submitted to Administration to buy a section of municipally held land in the Grande Cache hamlet, officially known as Plan 972 0898, Block 38, Lot 3PUL, which is located about 100 meters (330 feet) north of the tourism centre. The relevant land is a Public Utility land (PUL) and measures around 0.935 hectares (2.31 ac). The applicant is interested in purchasing the nearby, vacant PUL because they also intend to purchase Lot 2, next to the PUL, to build a training facility to assist future mining operations near Grande Cache. However, the lot is not large enough for the intended facility. The purchase of this additional land will allow the applicant to complete construction of their training facility. Council approved the sale of approximately 0.768 hectares (1.9 acres) of Plan 972 0898, Block 38, Lot 3PUL for fair market value as determined by a third-party appraisal, subject to subdivision and consolidation with the adjacent lands described as Plan 972 0898, Block 38, Lot 2.

Council approved a sponsorship to the Canadian Motorcycle Tourism Association in the amount of $1,000.00 for a sponsorship and up to $200.00 for an in-kind donation, for the 2024 “Ride for Vision & Valour” Commemoration Event, to be held June 7-9, 2024, in Grande Prairie, with funds to come from the Community Services Sponsorships and Donations budget. The Canadian Motorcycle Tourism Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is “To honor, dedicate & Interpret the military history of Northwestern Alberta”. The Association owns and operates the Veterans Memorial Gardens and Interpretive Centre in Grande Prairie, AB.

Greenview Council Supports the Annual “Hope Lives” Fundraiser for Rising Above
The Hope Lives Banquet is an annual fundraising event that includes a buffet dinner, silent and live auctions, as well as the opportunity for attendees to hear stories of hope and success from Rising Above. Council approved a sponsorship in the amount of $600.00 for a table of 8 for Rising Above’s 16th annual Hope Lives Banquet at the TARA Centre at Evergreen Park on March 23, 2024, with funds to come from the Community Services Sponsorships & Donations Budget.

Greenview Industrial Gateway Sponsorship Agreement with Evergreen Park Approved
Administration presented an opportunity for a three-year sponsorship of a Greenview Industrial Gateway (GIG) fence sign at Evergreen Park in Grande Prairie, AB. This sign will be located along the fence at the entrance/exit to Evergreen Park. In addition to the fence sponsorship promotional ads for the GIG will be shared on promotional screens in the TARA Centre, Wild Horse Casino & Lounge, under the Grandstand, and in the Pines Family Restaurant at no extra cost. Council moved to enter into a three-year sponsorship agreement with Evergreen Park for a Greenview Industrial Gateway Fence Sign for $2,500.00 annually from 2024-2026 as well as a $400.00 production cost for the sign, with funds to come from the Greenview Industrial Gateway Budget.
