To Bragg Creek Residents:

This Petition has been developed to register concerns with the Rocky View County (“RVC”) - Tetra Tech EBA Ltd. process ($140,000 funded by Alberta Transportation) that is currently underway to consider additional emergency egress options to serve the West Bragg Creek area. Many residents believe the current RVC-Tetra Tech process has significant shortcomings which will lead to an unsuccessful outcome and further delay implementing potential solutions. There is a lack of common sense stewardship in the current process.

Resident Concerns with the Current RVC Process:

  • Current Routes Do Not Serve the Community Well
  • Local Knowledge for Routes Ignored
  • Not Considering the Fort McMurray & Slave Lake Lessons
  • Fails the Tests of Sustainability, Social and Environmental Responsibility
  • Restricted Consultation Process
  • Perils Not Properly Defined
  • Wrong Priorities and Rankings for Route Selection
  • Use of Expensive and Long Lead Time New Bridges
  • Exclusion of Nearby Alberta Wildfire Firefighting Resources
  • Stranded Capital with “Emergency Only” Infrastructure
  • Elimination of Favorable K-Country Options
  • No Plan to Improve Survivability of the Balsam Avenue Bridge
  • No Associated Communication Plan
  • RVC Process Fits the Budget and Not the Needs

It is important to inform Rocky View County that changes are required to the current emergency egress road process. We are seeking your support by providing this petition to RVC indicating that you would like to see the process modified. Additional information is available on a Facebook page (“2016WBCEgressRoad”).
