Mayor Houston, the City's Chief Administrative Officer, Robert Cotterill and the Project Sponsor, Corey Levasseur be appointed as the City's Annexation Negotiation Team.
Background/Analysis
The final City of Spruce Grove Growth Study was presented to Council in December 2016 resulting in Council accepting the report for release to the public and to Parkland County and the Town of Stony Plain.  At that time, Council directed administration to proceed with the implementation of the Growth Study. With Council elections having taken place this past October, administration is seeking a re-commitment from Council to move forward with the implementation of the Growth Study and commence negotiations with Parkland County and the Town of Stony Plain with respect to the expansion areas identified within the Growth Study.

At the January 15, 2018 Committee of the Whole, Council received an updated on Growth Study process to date, including a review of the 2016 Growth Study, the draft Financial Impact Analysis and the Consultation Results Report. Council is now being requested to re-commit to the Growth Study Implementation process and to appoint members to the Annexation Negotiation Team so that the process may move forward.
