63 per cent say 'YES'

Monday, November 3, brought one of the most exciting voting results in Drumheller’s recent history.
In a substantial majority, 63.3 per cent of those who voted, said ‘YES’ to  the question “Are you in favour of constructing a Community Facility on the location that includes the lands known as John Anderson Park?”
Of 2,466 ballots cast on Monday, 1,561 said ‘YES’ and 905 said ‘NO’, a strong lead in favour of the community facility.
A large 42.9 per cent of all eligible voters in town cast their ballots, a decent number for any vote, but surprisingly low for how much attention has been given to the issue.

    Drumheller-Stettler MLA and Minister of Infrastructure, Jack Hayden, and Minister of Culture and Community Spirit, Lindsay Blackett, were at the national historic site, with a number of other Atlas supporters for the presentation. The funds came from the Major Community Facilities Enhancement Program, and are on top of funds already committed from the Alberta Historic Resources Foundation.
