A report on local engagement outcomes (click HERE to view) was presented to County Council on June 12 2018. The report provided Council with a summary of the trends, themes and issues collected during initial engagement with the County’s Agricultural Community.
Administration provided three recommendations to County Council which were unanimously supported, including:
- That the results from the Agricultural Community engagement process inform the development of specific agricultural support recommendations, with a report back to Council in Q4 2018.
- That the Mayor submit the Agricultural Community engagement findings to the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board as part of requested input towards Phase I of the Regional Agricultural Master Plan development process.
- That the Sturgeon County Strategic Plan be amended to clearly reference support for the agriculture sector as a community and Council priority, and as a key component of the County’s brand identity.
Sturgeon County will continue gathering information from residents through an Online Survey, and we encourage all interested residents to stay involved!
