Baseline Road Construction Land Expropriation – To complete the Baseline Road reconstruction project, additional right-of-way is required to be obtained from a landowner.

Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework Agreement with Parkland County – Council also gave second and third reading to an Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework (ICP) Agreement with Parkland County. In short, the ICP outlines the process of collaboration for both counties, the agreed-upon services to be delivered, and modes of dispute resolution.
