    Council gets Q3 and Q4 Economic Update

    Chestermere city council received the economic development report for the third and fourth quarter at the Dec. 18 council meeting.

    One of the highlights from the quarters has been the high levels of interest in the Webster Industrial Park sale.

    “We’ve had a lot of inquiries looking strictly for information,” said Economic Development Officer Tawndra Calhoun.

    The city’s broker for the sale, Colliers International, has recently completed the marketing brochure for the sale.

    Calhoun said that with the brochure completed, interested buyers will be able to get the information they are looking for without tying up staff and Colliers International time.

    Other highlight s from the two quarters included the first ever small business week, hosted in partnership with the Chestermere Chamber of Commerce.

    The successful event led to the highest turnout for the Chamber Awards with 74 tickets sold for that event.

    The city also received $38,925 from the CARES Grant which was budgeted for the BRE and the City marketing programming for 2018 and winter 2019.
