Updated unofficial 2021 Election results

Following a recount of two voting stations which had not yet reported results, The City has updated unofficial results to reflect 100% of votes cast. A recount was performed earlier today after an isolated technical issue disrupted results reporting for Advance Vote at the Baymont by Wyndham Red Deer and the Mustard Seed. The recount did not change the outcome of the Election.

Red Deer saw an increase in voter turnout compared to the last Municipal Election. In the 2021 Election, 21,548 out of 71,475 eligible voters, or 30.15 per cent, cast their ballots, including 10,622 during the Advance Vote. This was an increase over 2017, which saw 19,265 of 66,897 eligible voters, or 28.8 per cent, cast their ballots, including 2,639 during Advance Vote.

Unofficial results of the 2021 Municipal and School Board Elections are as follows:

City Council to hear arguments for and against extending homeless shelter at Cannery Row for 2 more years

Public Hearing set for Land Use Bylaw amendment for temporary emergency housing

A Public Hearing is now set for January 17, 2022 at 4 p.m. following Council’s approval of first reading of a Land Use Bylaw (LUB) amendment today. The amendment being considered is to allow for continued operations of the temporary emergency housing site at Cannery Row (5239 53 Avenue) until February 1, 2024.

The existing site exception for the temporary emergency housing site expired on September 30, 2021, and it is now operational through an executive order following the declaration of a State of Local Emergency (SOLE) in place up until February 15, 2022.

As part of the Public Hearing process, neighbours within 100 meters of the site will receive a letter from the administration inviting them to submit feedback on the amendment. The general public is also invited to provide feedback in advance or during the Public Hearing. Those wishing to provide feedback during the Public Hearing on January 17, 2022 are invited to attend the online Council meeting at 4 p.m.. Full details on the Public Hearing and how to provide feedback will be uploaded to The City’s site in the coming weeks. Details will be available at www.reddeer.ca/publichearing.

Council received an update on the current emergency housing status in the community on December 1, 2021. Administration had explored all opportunities for relocating the temporary site, but no viable solutions were available. The report outlined the need for full spectrum housing in the city, the goal is to have a permanent purpose-built emergency housing site in Red Deer operational within two years. Funding is in place and steps are underway with the province to make this a reality for the community. A location for the permanent site has not been decided. This Land Use Bylaw amendment would facilitate a temporary emergency housing solution at the current location until the permanent site is operational.

For background information on the temporary emergency housing site, visit www.reddeer.ca/emergencyhousing.
