2021 Regional Governance Study

The Village of Caroline, Clearwater County and the Town of Rocky Mountain House

From the Regional Governance Study website:

Through this Study process, we will be working towards developing a common vision for the future that is based on cooperation, improving access to government by citizens and identifying a financially healthy path forward for all three municipalities. While we are always looking at ways our municipalities can deliver programs, services and infrastructure effectively, this Governance Study is not intended to be a downsizing exercise. Instead, we are exploring options to increase our efficiency and support the region’s prosperity and viability, and citizen input will be essential to the Study process.

Public engagement is anticipated to launch mid-February. Residents, landowners, and stakeholders of all three municipalities will have opportunities to review background information and what we have learned so far, as well as share their initial comments and ideas. More information on how to get involved will be shared as the details are confirmed. For those unable to participate online, request hard copies of materials and the survey from your municipal office.
