County council announces 2024 advocacy priorities

The County of Grande Prairie has released council’s 2024 advocacy priorities in an effort to secure support for key projects and infrastructure in the county’s communities.

Three major priorities were announced during council’s most recent Monday meeting: economic development, transportation, and building a healthy community.

According to council, actions have been taken to advocate for the Province to adopt a new electricity pricing model for distribution across Alberta and for the Province to support the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum to gain economic development opportunities for the county and focus on job creation and talent attraction.

In terms of transportation, the County plans on promoting awareness regarding the infrastructure needs in their communities to the provincial and federal governments and continue lobbying to prioritize funding for the Highway 40X construction project.
