DATE: Tuesday, June 20, 2023

TIME: 10:00 AM

LOCATION: Radisson Hotel Red Deer (6500 - 67 Street) Red Deer, Alberta  

 The proposed annexation area involves approximately 216 hectares (533 acres) of land located adjacent to the City's northwest boundary. The application states that the proposed annexation will provide the City with highway fronting commercial land along Highway 2.           

Although the two municipalities have negotiated an agreement, objections to the proposed annexation require the Tribunal to conduct a public hearing.

After considering the submissions from all parties, the Tribunal will make an annexation recommendation to the Minister of Municipal Affairs.

A hard copy of the annexation application can be viewed at both the City and the County municipal offices during normal business hours. Information about the proposed annexation can also be found on the City's website at
