The Town of Redcliff enjoyed a packed year, with a variety of projects and improvements for residents and visitors alike.

“The Town of Redcliff experienced substantial growth with our dedicated staff overseeing major projects,” said Bonnie Andres, Executive Assistant in a submitted summary of 2023’s events. “One such endeavour involved the removal and replacement of Sanitary Sewer Mains and Water Mains on 2 Street NW, including the installation of new curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, resulting in significant roadway reconstruction.”

This year also marked the completion of the new Land Use Bylaw. The new Land Use Bylaw provides residents with a modernized, more comprehensive layout incorporating more graphic representations to clarify and identify updated “Town needs,” explained Andres. 

The Rec-Tangle also saw some attention over the year, with the replacement of the facility’s original dasher boards and the introduction of a new rink slab, revitalizing the arena and enhancing its overall functionality.

This enhancement also extended to the Redcliff Museum, said Andres.

“With the support of the Enabling Accessibility Fund through the Government of Canada, the Redcliff Museum now boasts barrier-free access,” said Andres.

“The Town of Redcliff recognizes that our annual events and monthly programming impact our residents’ quality of life and are vital in strengthening our community,” said Andres. “In 2023, Redcliff Days saw expansion by closing a major street in the downtown core to broaden the pedestrian atmosphere and facilitate more activities and events, including a large street market.”

The 3rd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Winter Festival was another notable event with the addition of Parkside School Market and local businesses participating in the 2nd Annual Moonlight Madness.

“We are also excited that our Economic Development staff and local community businesses and stakeholders have made great efforts to collaborate regularly to support and expand business initiatives and community development within the Town,” said Andres.
