If you’d like to support the concept of low-impact sustainable development, we’d appreciate it if you signed and sent us the email below. If you live in the county of Red Deer, it would be helpful if you made a note of that. We’ll print out your email and pass it on to Red Deer County council.
Sigmund and Cindy
Hello Mayor Kinsella and Council Members,
Thank you for setting up the recent planning guidelines that encourage sustainable development in Red Deer County.
I am aware that Sigmund and Cindy have applied for a rezoning that would allow for a unique green-home community in Red Deer County called the Ridge. I am sending this email in support of your efforts to protect the environment, and also in support of The Ridge, which I understands meets or exceeds all of your recently implement planning requirements and is accordingly designed to have minimal impact on rural and agricultural activities.
Again, thank you for making it possible for a subdivision like The Ridge to reduce environmental impact and preserve farmland.
