Hughena Burke on St. Albert’s future

Hughena Burke

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?


Hughena Burke

The vision I see is a strong, sustainable community with a thriving economy. Values such as community, engagement, integrity, respect, stewardship, trust, understanding, acceptance and forward thinking are followed. Residents will also feel safe in the places that they live, work and play. For council, I envision one that has strong, clear policies for development, planning and budgeting and that there is co-operative conflict resolution to make decisions for the betterment of St. Albertans.
