The Town of Stony Plain has received a grant from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) in  the amount of $136,185.80 for our Storm Water Management Master Plan.

FCM offers grants for municipal environmental projects to allow communities to build on their sustainability strategies. The grant funded 80% of the costs associated with development of the Storm Water Management Master Plan, reducing the cost to our taxpayers. 

“The Storm Water Management Master Plan is necessary for the continued growth of Stony Plain. The plan focuses on the flow of surface water and the development of catchment areas to protect our residents from potential flooding. It also ensures we keep everyday contaminants out of waterways and reduces our impact on natural areas,” says Ian McKay, General Manager of Planning and Infrastructure.  He continues, “This plan will ensure we continue move our community in a progressive, environmentally responsible direction.

Mayor William Choy says, “Grants such as these are crucial to our community. They allow us to build solid, sustainable plans for our future without burdening our residents with greater costs. The Town is grateful for the support we have received from FCM.”
