-Responsible developments that preserve farmland
The MD of Foothills is under significant pressure for development. Housing, business and commercial developments are a vital part of our community, but they need to be done in a way that protects our valuable agricultural land and maintains our air and water quality.
The MD has been hit hard by a reduction in tax revenues from the energy sector as well as increased costs. We need to find better ways of doing things if we are to stop the upward spiral our tax rates have been on.
The MD of Foothills supports and funds a number of community initiatives and recreation centres. These are part of what makes this community one of the best places on earth to live, work, and raise our families. We need to continue to build and support our communities for an even better tomorrow.
