Winter Front Curb Collection Resident Feedback

Front curb collection is in place for the following areas:

  • The area west of 48 Street and south of the CN Rail tracks
  • Meridian Heights subdivision
  • St. Andrews subdivision

In previous years, winter front curb collection changes have been implemented from April to early June to protect rear alley roadways from heavy vehicle traffic during the spring thaw. Winter front curb collection was moved to begin in early November this year as part of a pilot project to protect rear alley road integrity.

The change is a pilot project to determine whether or not moving the front curb collection to begin earlier in the winter season reduces damage to rear alley roadways come spring. Service levels to rear alley care and maintenance have not and will not be changing. Front curb collection is necessary to maintain road integrity and reduce damage to rear alleys during the spring thaw.

Currently, the Town is exploring four options for winter front curb collection:

  1. Front curb pick up year-round
  2. Front curb pick up November to June (remainder rear alley pick up)
  3. Front curb pick up April to June (remainder rear alley pick up)
  4. Rear alley pick up year-round

Impacted residents are invited to share their perspectives by identifying which option would be preferred moving forward. Responses are anonymous.

Winter Front Curb Collection Survey


Call-Out for the Significant Names Registry

Assigning names to municipal roads, buildings, neighbourhoods, parks, and trails is the responsibility of Stony Plain staff. With recent interest from the community to assign names of current or former town residents, the Town has prepared a Significant Names Registry, which is list of individuals who have made significant contributions to the town, its history, or development, that can be used to name Town features. 

As the first iteration of the Significant Names Registry, the Town is requesting confirmation from the individuals or families of those on the list to identify if they support the name being available to be assigned to Town features throughout the community. The Town is also accepting nominations for additional names to be considered for inclusion on the list. 

Are you related to an individual on the Significant Names Registry? Do you have a family member or friend who meets the criteria to be added to the Significant Names Registry? If so, we want to hear from you! Submit your feedback through the public survey from November 14, 2022 - February 14, 2023.

Be in the Know!

The Be in the Know! campaign was active from June 13 – September 30. The purpose of the campaign was to gain insight into how residents are accessing information and what improvements can be made to the Town’s communication approaches. How do residents hear about Town events and programs? What are their go-to platforms for staying in the loop on all things Stony Plain?

“I don’t see the Town’s posts on Facebook!” 

We hear you! Between changes to algorithms and platform updates, it can be difficult to stay in the loop on the social media front. Your Facebook newsfeed does not always show everything that has been posted by the pages you follow; instead, it largely focuses on pages you regularly interact with. The more you engage with the Town page, the more likely you are to see our posts come up in your newsfeed. 

There are a few steps you can take to get the Town of Stony Plain’s posts showing up in your newsfeed:

  1. On the Town of Stony Plain Facebook page, select ‘Follow’.
  2. Under the ‘Follow’ button, set the Town of Stony Plain page as a ‘Favourite’ – this will place Town posts at the top of your newsfeed. 
 “I hear about events too late!” 

Finding out about an event the day of can be a real bummer, to say the least. There are a few different tools you can use to keep up with Town events:

  1. Subscribe to the Newsroom: by subscribing, you will receive an email alert whenever the Town releases an event announcement or update.
  2. Subscribe to the Community Calendar: you will receive email alerts detailing upcoming events in the community. The calendar is open to the public, so not only will you hear about Town events, but you will also hear about events being hosted by local organizations and community members!
  3. Check out the Town of Stony Plain Facebook page: in addition to regular posting, the Town page uses the Events tool to feature events in the community.
