Town planners seek input on west area of Ponoka

An open house is set for Thursday at the Kinsmen Community Centre

Ponoka residents have a chance to provide input into what happens to the west portion of town.

This area includes Ponoka’s cemetery, plus the industrial land south of there, as well as the area of the VJV Auction Mart and the town’s annexed land adjacent to Highway 2.

A public open house is set for Thursday at the Kinsmen Community Centre to allow residents to provide input on the town’s west area structure plan.

“The purpose of the plan is to provide policy guidance for future subdivision and development of the lands annexed in 2011 west of Highway 2A along both sides of Highway 53 in Ponoka,” states a press release. “As well as the existing South East Industrial lands.”

The open house is set for 2 to 7 p.m.
