Grasslands is a "GO"

The stalled Grasslands subdivision has been started again! The original developer left the project only half completed. Many of the services and the streets were already in place when the project came to a halt.

Metro Paving & Roadbuilding Ltd., one of the contractors originally involved, has now stepped up to the plate and is going to proceed with Grasslands!  During these next couple of winter months, the Village of Beiseker and Metro will hammer out a new plan to develop the subdivision.
I am expecting to see basements being dug and houses being constructed during the upcoming construction season!

I have lived in this village for many years, and it has much to offer newcomers.  Here are a few things;
  •  If you live in Beiseker  your kids can walk to school;  Kindergarten to grade 12!
  •  If you live in Beiseker, you can walk to the grocery store, hardware store, drug store, and medical clinic!
  • If you live in Beiseker, you have access to many recreational facilities here or in neighbouring towns.  In the City of Calgary these recreational facilities would have to serve more than 20 times the population!
  • If you live in Beiseker, you are minutes away from the intersection of two provincial highways!
There are many more!

I'm really excited about this development.  Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming weeks.


  1. Good work council! I look forward to seeing the development!

    Ray I'm wondering who is getting free water? Frank Dusome from Irricana has said that a Beiseker councillor told him that one of the biggest users of water wasn't being charged.

    Who get's/got the water for free and why did we have to pay for it?

    1. I'll add the link where Frank Dusome said that, just for reference --
