Life in the Heartland hosted their second information evening of the year in Gibbons on Monday (Oct.29).
The event catered to 175 people, including local residents, community leaders and industry experts. Representatives from local industries shared details at their booths, highlighting information about their future plans.
"It's a twice a year event and it offers individuals an opportunity to speak directly to industry in the region and talk about some of the projects and activities that are happening," explained Tracey Hill, chair of Life in the Heartland.
The event also featured three presentations from local industries giving updates on their current projects: Northwest Redwater Partnership, who are currently in charge of the Sturgeon Refinery, Inter Pipeline, who are running the Heartland Petrochemical Complex and Alberta's Industrial Heartland Association, who provided a quick overview of some of the transportation infrastructure projects going on in the area.
The last community information evening was hosted in April.
