Assessment notices have been mailed, customer review period to begin
Assessment notices were mailed out to High River property owners on Friday, March 15.

Starting on Monday, March 25 until May 22, the customer review period will begin. During the review period, property owners will have the opportunity to check the information contained in the assessment and bring forward any questions about their property assessment to the Town of High River.

“The customer review period provides property owners with the opportunity to ensure the information we have in the notice is accurate as well as learn more about our assessment process,” says Stewart Dalrymple, the Town’s Assessment Supervisor.

The information contained in the assessments will be used to prepare the 2019 property tax bills. So, property owners are encouraged to use the review period to check, conduct their own research, compare their assessment, and most importantly, get their questions answered.

Twelve new street names added to High River’s roster
Street names for a proposed new subdivision, called Highwood Ranch, were accepted by Council at their March 11, 2019 meeting.

“The names were inspired by the ranching history of the area, and have a western theme to them,” explains Becky Soby, a development officer with the Town.

The street names, running north/south, will be:
  • Boundary Street N.W.
  • Coyote Street N.W.
  • Stage Coach Street N.W.
  • Western Street N.W.
  • Settler Street N.W.

The streets running east/west will be called:   
  • Ranchers Road N.W.
  • Mountainview Road N.W.
  • Lariat Road N.W.
  • Spur Road N.W.
  • Highwood Ranch Road N.W.

“There are two streets that will run both north/south and east/west - Pioneer Way N.W. and Chinook Road N.W.,” Soby explains further. “Both these streets curve around the homes in new development in such a way that causes them to run in all four directions.”

The proposed northwest neighbourhood is part of the Highwood Ranch Neighbourhood Outline Plan which was previously approved by Council in February 2018.
