Regular crib for Big Valley players returns on April 23

The last crib of the season will be held on Sunday, April 30.

BIG VALLEY BULLETIN — The Village of Big Valley held a public meeting on Thursday, April 13 to discuss Bylaw 830, the land use bylaw amendment to establish the Tiny House residential district. The Big Valley Council and CAO were on hand to offer as much accurate information as possible to the public. A short presentation outlining the proposed subdivision was given before residents were provided with the opportunity to present their views for or against the proposal. Both in person and written submissions raised concerns ranging from the financial feasibility of the subdivision, the impact on the budget and other village projects, the capacity of existing infrastructure to deal with the new subdivision and the impact on existing property values. During the Q&A session particulars regarding lot sizes, architectural guidelines, set back requirements, Alberta Safety Code compliance and economic impacts were discussed. Information collected during the meeting will be made available to the public.

Tiny homes will be discussed further at the next council meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 26 at 1 p.m. at the Big Valley village office. Public is encouraged to attend.

Twelve players came out for crib at the Big Valley Inn on Sunday, April 9. Dale Kobe took first, Stan Nattestad and Mary Wilkie shared second and third place and Caroline Pound went home with the booty. Trudy Spence won the regular draw.

Big Valley crib players took a holiday break and had no crib scheduled for Easter Sunday. Their regular crib returns on Sunday, April 23, with the last crib of the season on Sunday, April 30.

Big Valley public works will begin compost pickup for 2017 on Wednesday, May 3. Residents are reminded to make sure that bags are not too heavy and to please put only compostable materials in the CLEAR bags for pickup every Wednesday throughout the summer.

An Internet Safety Information Night for Parents will be held at the Heartland Youth Centre, 5002 47 Street, Stettler on Thursday, April 27 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. A variety of online activities popular with children and teens will be examined. Parents will be offered practical information to help deal with their children’s online safety concerns including ways to find help with online harassment.

Useful handouts and links to websites will be provided and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. For more information contact: Penny Warford, CARS, 403-740-2775 or Stephanie Hadley, ACAA, 403-742-3558.
