Dawne Fowler on St. Albert’s future

Dawne Fowler

What do you envision for the future of St. Albert?

Do you want it to remain a haven for large single-family dwelling lots. Do you want more density? Do you see a mix?

Is St. Albert a vital part of the Edmonton capital region? Is the city’s growth being managed with other communities and their plans in mind, or does St. Albert’s vision stop at its civic boundaries?

When it comes time to make decisions at council on planning items and policy, what council’s really doing is setting up this community’s future. The decisions made by the council candidates who are hoping to join could easily reverberate decades down the road.

With that in mind, our final question for candidates before St. Albertans vote on June 24 was about the future of this city.


What is your vision for the future of St. Albert?


Dawne Fowler

Cities are people, not structures. People who want a safe, vibrant place in which to live, learn, work and play. We continue building capital that satisfies our human need to socialize. Walkable communities. Trails that interconnect and unite neighbourhoods. More social events and activities. Residents living and working here. I see a 100-year plan for land acquisition with funding in place to ensure that we can get to where we plan on going.
