Town seeks feedback on designs for new murals


High River, AB: The Town’s Mural Ad Hoc Committee is looking for High River residents of all interests and age groups to complete a short survey regarding the proposed design of two new murals for the community.

The Town of High River has received grant funding from the Calgary Foundation to create the new murals to be located in the downtown area.

“The murals will be a visual depiction of the town’s renewal and recovery after the 2013 flood,” said Sarah Mitchell, parks and culture coordinator for the Town. “High River’s current murals represent key events or people from the town’s history and these will add to that visual repository.”

The Mural Ad Hoc Committee will now oversee the project, which will include extensive public input and participation in determining the design for the murals.

“It’s important that the murals reflect all residents’ vision,” explained Mitchell. “Committee members will be present at the Town’s information session at the Memorial Centre on April 14 from 4-7p.m. as well as the Trade Fair at the Bob Snodgrass Recreational Complex on April 24-25 to handout surveys and answer any questions.”

Anyone interested in providing feedback is invited to take the short survey by visiting under the Public Forums Menu.

Once the artists and final designs are chosen the new murals are expected to be completed by June, 2016.
