Municipal government and school districts planning together


“The District of Mackenzie is hoping to get some feedback from School District 57 on its official community plan. As Mackenzie goes through a recovery of the area, the plan is being formed to deal with the resurgence expected to happen. Chief Administrative Officer Mark Fercho says there have been some changes to the area in the past few years.

“Part of that comes with working families which is typically your younger families,” says Fercho, “so we’ve gone through a time when there was less and less children in town to now a period where there is growth in the number of preschool aged and younger children entering the school system.”

Fercho says the District of Mackenzie wants feedback from the school district on how best to prepare for the return of students. He says they hope to have the OCP ratified by the end of the year.”
