Public Engagement

The City values public input and recognizes its importance in identifying the needs of all Yellowhead Trail road users, area residents and businesses. Each segment of the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program is being built to balance the roadway requirements with community, business and commuter needs. See Program History to learn more.

In order to meet physical distancing requirements to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the City is not holding in-person public engagement at this time. We value your input and encourage you to participate in future engagement opportunities when they are available.
