The Town of Bentley is inviting residents to a public meeting tomorrow regarding the proposed annexation of land from Lacombe County.

The proposed annexation area incorporates land in the north half of Section 23, Township 40, Range 1, West of the 5th Meridian, located to the south and east of Bentley.  

The area was the subject of the Southeast Bentley Area Structure Plan (ASP) approved by Lacombe County Council in November 2023.  

The ASP provides for commercial and industrial development on about 200 acres of privately owned land adjacent to the town.    

The annexation proposal is for the land covered by the ASP, to be removed from the county and included in the town.    

The public meeting is an opportunity for residents to learn about the annexation proposal, and the process to date, and give residents a chance to give their feedback on the annexation.   

A brief presentation will be given at the start of the meeting, followed by a question-and-answer period and discussion session.  

The public meeting will be held on April 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Blindman Valley Agricultural Centre (5202 53 Street Close Bentley).
