Just a reminder that the next regularly scheduled “Healthy Development” conversation meeting this coming Tuesday, March 3, 7:00pm at the Griffiths Centre.
They had originally hoped that Gary Taylor from the Turner Valley Golf Course might be able to speak to the group about some of the thinking that has gone into the possibility of looping the Friendship Trail. Unfortunately Gary will not be available until their following meeting on April 7.
The good news however is that our Town Planner in Black Diamond, Rod Ross, is available to present the planning work the Town has done with regards to pathways, lead the group through an exercise in which they’ll use a recent “Pathways Planning Considerations”* set of criteria for determining pathways priorities, and join in the conversation.
In addition, they hope to be joined by Turner Valley’s Town Planner, Matt Atkinson, who will be able to fill them in on Turner Valley’s pathways planning.
The conversation next Tuesday ties in very nicely to the Library lecture scheduled for later in the month, the March 24 presentation on the Drayton Valley students’ participation in the creation of their community trail system. (see attached announcement below)
All of which should result in the group being very prepared for Gary’s presentation in April!
