In the latest round of MSP funding announcements, 29 projects in the Drumheller-Stettler constituency have been approved.

Included are improvements to the roof at the Acadia Valley Curling Rink, construction of a 428 square metre facility to house both the firehall and public works shop in the Homestead Coulee area, and upgrades to the Cereal Recreation Grounds.

Alberta’s government is investing in numerous sewage, water, road and culvert projects across the riding. 

This will support facilities that house local water stations, upgrade wastewater lines and storm water drainage systems, replace water towers, and will build and repair roads.

“This is at the heart of Alberta’s Recovery Plan, prioritizing job creation, new infrastructure, and diversifying our economy, ultimately to get our province, and our economy, back on track,” said MLA Nate Horner.

In addition to the $500 million supplied by the provincial  government, for these shovel-ready projects, Alberta is also matching $233 million in federal funding to support municipal operating costs during the pandemic. 

“I’m proud to see all of these worth-while projects going ahead. I look forward to seeing how these projects will both stimulate our local economy now, as well as put our communities in a better position for the years ahead,” said Horner.
