City of Red Deer

City snow plows are heading to your neighbourhood. Here’s the schedule and your snow zone

Published

From The City of Red Deer

Plows are ready to roll into residential areas

City crews are gearing up to start Snow Zone Plowing and residents are reminded to sign up for Snow Zone Alerts to get text, email, and phone call reminders before they need to move their vehicles off the street.

Snow Zone Plowing (residential) will begin on January 20 on Green Routes (Collector Roads and Bus Routes) in Snow Zone H; Grey Route (Residential Streets) plowing in Snow Zone H will follow on January 24. Plowing will continue alphabetically through Snow Zones until complete. Parking restrictions will be in place during plowing in each Snow Zone, which could be a few days at a time.

“It should only take our crews a day or two to plow Green or Grey Routes in each Snow Zone, but it does take us a lot longer if vehicles are left parked on the streets,” said Public Works Manager Greg Sikora.

“When we’re plowing Green Routes, you can park your car on a Grey Route, which is usually justaround the corner. It is the same case for Grey Route plowing; if you really need to park on the street,you can park on a Green route. That’s why we don’t plow Green and Grey Routes in a Snow Zone at the same time,” he continued.

There are many different ways for residents to learn the schedule:

  •   Sign up for Snow Zone Alerts at reddeer.ca/notifyreddeer to get text, email or phone call reminders before plowing starts in their Snow Zone
  •   Check the schedule online at reddeer.ca/snowzone
  •   Follow the City of Red Deer on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates
  •   Call the Snow Zone Hotline at 403-406-8796
  •   Look for signs at neighbourhood entrances and on Green Routes

     

    “We know it is hard to remember exactly when plows will be in your area, which is why Notify Red Deer is such a great tool for residents to use,” said Sikora, “It takes just a few minutes to sign up and you get a text, email or phone call – whichever you prefer – to remind you to move your car.”

    During Green Route plowing, residents will find no-parking signs along the street. Parking restrictions are in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday while plowing is scheduled, and vehicles left onthe street will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

    During Grey Route plowing, residents will notice signs at the entrance to their neighbourhood. Parking restrictions are in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday while plowing is scheduled and vehicles left on the street are ticketed and plowed in. Parking restrictions are not in effect on weekends.

    “We are reaching out to residents to help us get residential roads clear as quickly as possible,” said Sikora. “If we work together, we can get streets cleared and get out of your way fast. We are asking residents to be a part of the program and ensure the streets are free of cars before we head into yourneighbourhood.”

    Residents are encouraged to visit the City’s website at reddeer.ca/snowzone for details about the program, schedule updates, and to sign up for Snow Zone Alerts.

The full January 2020 Snow Zone Plowing Schedule is attached, and will be kept up to date on our website.

Red Deer City Council needs these three things in next week’s provincial budget

Published

on

From The City of Red Deer

Justice, health and social infrastructure are priorities for Red Deer in the 2020 Provincial Budget

With the speech from the throne and provincial budget anticipated this month, Red Deer City Council and administration will listen closely for some key items around justice, health, social and general municipal infrastructure.

The City of Red Deer is specifically looking for commitment and investment in crown prosecutors for Red Deer, a 24/7 permanent shelter and hospital expansion, as well as a commitment to maintain Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funding, which was reduced in 2019 impacting The City’s overall capital plan going forward.

“This provincial budget is unlike any other as we continue working to respond to critical social and economic challenges that we hope will be provincially prioritized,” said Mayor Tara Veer. “Investment in a 24/7 permanent shelter and funding for Red Deer Regional Hospital expansion are critical needs that must be addressed for the health and wellbeing of our city as a whole. An investment in justice, especially additional crown prosecutors for Red Deer, is also a top priority to strengthen the court’s ability to uphold charges and obtain justice for victims of crime.”

In addition, The City of Red Deer continues to be concerned about potential downloading of provincial responsibilities to municipalities resulting in potential local tax impacts.

“The impacts of provincial downloading can be significant, especially at a time when many citizens are already feeling the pressures of difficult economic times. While we support the provincial government’s efforts in furthering financial sustainability and efficiency, we are working locally to maintain service and program delivery that responds to the economic and social challenges we face today as a city, and as a province,” said Veer.

As part of the priorities highlighted at the City Council meeting today, The City of Red Deer noted its commitment to community safety and crime reduction with continued focused on advocacy for additional crown prosecutors, as well as a need for a province-wide needle distribution protocol and debris strategy, residential treatment and increased affordable housing in Red Deer.

“It is our responsibility, as local government, to build a safe community while providing stability to businesses and residents in our city, especially in times of economic volatility,” said Mayor Tara Veer. “Earlier this year, Red Deer City Council approved the 2020 budget based on the best information we have right now, and it is our hope that this provincial budget reflects and acknowledges the needs of our citizens and our community at a time when we are working to maintain services and infrastructure for 2020 and beyond.”

The speech from the throne will take place on Tuesday, February 25 with the provincial budget on Thursday, February 27. Upon release of the 2020 provincial budget, administration will conduct an in-depth review to fully understand its impact on Red Deer and its citizens.

City of Red Deer introduces funding program to boost downtown development

From The City of Red Deer

New incentive program for downtown development projects in Red Deer

A new funding program has launched in Red Deer to support downtown development projects. The program aims to increase activity and growth opportunities in the Greater Downtown Area while supporting The City’s overall Strategic Plan.

There are five funding opportunities in the program, including:

  • Facade and Storefront Improvement Rebate, intended to increase a sense of downtown pride through an investment in beautification, restoration, signage and improved security features.
  • Environmental Site Assessment Rebate, which supports owners of properties which require Environmental Site Assessments before redevelopment can occur.
  • Demolition of Vacant and Derelict Properties Rebate, which assists property owners with demolition costs to facilitate sale or redevelopment of their property.
  • Utility Connection Fee Rebate, which supports property owners required to replace or upgrade utility connections as part of developing or redeveloping on their property.
  • Residential and Mixed Use Development Grant, which promotes the development of newly constructed multifamily residential and/or mixed use units.
  • These opportunities will contribute to a healthy, successful downtown by improving aesthetic, encouraging developers to build residential units downtown, and reducing the costs of investing in our downtown.

“These economic development programs are taking intentional actions to incent development in our downtown,” said Tara Lodewyk, Director of Planning Services. ”We recognize that downtowns are the heart of our cities and play a vital role as our communities’ business, administrative, and cultural centres.”

Property owners and developers may apply for funding from all five opportunities for a single location, pending eligibility. The first intake occurs February 15 – March 15, 2020 and a second intake is planned for July 1 – August 1, 2020, pending available remaining funds.

For more information and to apply online, visit www.reddeer.ca/EconomicIncentives.
