Bruderheim are now the owners of 13 acres of land right in the middle of the community.
First purchased from Suncor Energy in 2017, council agreed to make three payments over the year of $50,000. The town recently finished their last payment, totaling $150,000 from reserves.
"There's many forces from outside of our community that impact our community that we have no control over. This strategic land acquisition allows the town of Bruderheim to have control over a significant portion of land in a very enviable position," said mayor Karl Hauch.
Council plans to use the land to help drive development in the community. Since the town owned very little property before purchasing the land, they had little control over what was being built in the region.
So what could go in the spot?
"We may want to plan for a new recreation centre, town centre, commercial centre."
