Mayor’s Breakfast Speech Outlines Plans for 2020

mbs 2019

Earlier this morning, the Chestermere Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual Mayor’s breakfast. At the event, Mayor Marshall Chalmers covered the highlights of 2019 and outlined some plans City Council has for 2020.

“I’m delighted you are here today because I’d like to invite you to join me on a tour,” said Chalmers. “The location we are touring this morning is our home: Chestermere. Together, we are going to explore the significant changes our community has experienced this past year.”

Chalmers covered a variety of Council’s highlights over the past year including:

  • Dissolving CUI
  • Cutting utility rates by 8%
  • Bringing in black carts for garbage pickup
  • Initiating the lake safety pilot program
  • Upgrading infrastructure like Township Road 240 and the off leash area
  • Cutting taxes by 2%
  • Pursuing innovative solutions for projects

Chalmers explained that all these initiatives are part of the work towards a new vision for the community: to be amazing. He said that amazing vision is based on five spheres of priority: amazing partnerships, amazing quality of life, amazing opportunities, amazing relationships and amazing neighbourhoods.

“We believe that Chestermere has unlimited potential to be one of the most amazing communities in the entire country. Our new vision drives our work and decision making every step of the way,” he said.

The speech concluded by outlining some plans for 2020 including cutting taxes for the second year in a row (a 2% cut is being considered), bringing resolution to recreation challenges, working on seniors housing solutions, working with Calgary to ensure we can twin Chestermere Boulevard and 17th Avenue in a timely manner, and exploring selling City Hall.

“Thank you for joining us on this journey. We can’t wait to show you what we will do in the second half of our term!” said Chalmers.
