Alberta Government

The Village Council of Wabamun is requesting approval from the Alberta Government to develop the lands south of the CN railway track in the town of Wabamun. This area is an important wetlands for Wabamun lake. It serves as an important bird nesting area and a major fish spawning area.

The vegetation in this area also serves to maintain the lake's water quality. In addition, the area is not suitable for development as there is no strong foundation to build on. The marshy area would require excessive gravel fill to create a suitable building area. This alteration to the lake's natural shoreline would further disrupt the lake.

Plans for the development can be seen here. http://www.wabamun.ca/life/documents/Web_Package.pdf

We, the undersigned, call on the the Alberta Government to not allow development south of the railway tracks in the town of Wabamun (Excluding the area within 100m of the main pier).
