MLAs Miller and Schreiner “Budget 2017 delivers for Red Deer.”


Red Deer: MLA Barb Miller (Red Deer-North), and MLA Kim Schreiner (Red Deer-South) applaud the infrastructure being built because of Alberta NDP government’s budget and commitment to make life better for Albertans.


“I’ve been working with the City of Red Deer and listening to the people who contact my office, and I’m so happy that the government has paid attention to the needs of our great constituency,” said MLA Miller. “Seniors are an important part of our community, and the replacement of Piper Creek Lodge will provide better housing opportunities.”


As part of Budget 2017 the provincial government announced $97 in funding dedicated to obtaining the land and building a new Justice Centre for Red Deer, over $23 million over three years for the replacement of Piper Creek Lodge, $7 million for a new secure detoxification and residential treatment facility and continuing funding for the Gaetz Avenue/Taylor Drive Interchange.


“During these difficult economic times, it is encouraging that the government is keeping a steady hand and continuing to invest in infrastructure that puts Albertans to work and makes lives better,” said MLA Schreiner. “The new Justice Centre is a priority for the municipality and I know that it will be welcomed by everyone in Red Deer.”
