Village of Innisfree

Current Status: Municipal Affairs is inviting council, the County of Minburn council, village residents, and property owners to a public meeting scheduled to start at 7:00 PM on June 27, 2018 at the Innisfree Recreation Centre, located at 5024 54 Street in Innisfree.

At this meeting, Municipal Affairs will:

  • present the viability plan and respond to questions;
  • provide an overview of the two viability options for Innisfree; and
  • explain the options for final steps of the viability review.
The viability plan, and input received during and following the public information meeting, will be submitted to the Minister of Municipal Affairs for determination of next steps. The Minister may choose to hold a public vote on a question of dissolution, or may decide that the Village of Innisfree will remain a municipality and implement action to ensure the village's long-term viability.

Past Activities:

  • The viability review was initiated in March 2016.
  • An infrastructure audit was completed by the village (funded by Municipal Affairs).
  • Ministry staff began information collection in June 2016.
  • The first Viability Review Team meeting was held on February 28, 2017.
  • Viability review Team meetings and public engagement sessions were held March 16, 2017 and April 11, 2017 in Innisfree.
  • The Village of Innisfree Viability Review Team (VRT) has reconvened after a hiatus resulting from the municipal elections cycle. During the hiatus information was collected by ministry staff.
