Flood office reaching out to landowners


Beginning the week of February 17, 2021, associates from Scott Land and Lease, the land agent
for the Drumheller Resiliency and Flood Mitigation Office, will start reaching out to landowners
whose land will be directly affected based on our early berm designs.
It’s important that our land agents connect directly with impacted landowners prior to making the
full designs public. These meetings are designed to allow direct and confidential conversations
with impacted landowners first and foremost. Please note, the land agents will not be
participating in group meetings at this time.
After these meetings are complete, we will begin to have discussions with landowners adjacent
to new construction, but who we do not need to purchase property from ie. portions of
Newcastle, Midland, Nacmine and Willow Estates. These will likely begin in early March. Cambria
and Lehigh will be contacted in Fall 2021, as we still need to complete further analysis.
Finally, we will meet with neighbourhoods at the end of March, beginning of April, to discuss the
overall berm alignment for their area.
We ask for residents’ patience as we work our way through the lists. We anticipate this to take a
couple of weeks to schedule the meetings, and another two weeks to go through the site visits.
We understand your neighbours may have information about their properties before you, please
rest assured our team is working hard to get the information out to impacted landowners as soon
as possible. If you are concerned that you have not yet been reached out to by the end of March,
check our website for updates or contact our team at the flood office for further information.
