A handful of local organizations have asked the City of Spruce Grove to consider including them in the 2018 Corporate Plan.

 

Three of the five organizations made presentations to council detailing their funding requests during council’s committee of the whole meeting on April 18.

Corporate planning public submissions were received from the Friends of the Spruce Grove Public Library, Spruce Grove Beach Volleyball League, Spruce Grove City Centre Business Association, Tri-Community Adult Learning Association and the Night Owls Citizens on Patrol Society. The library, volleyball and City Centre groups each presented to council.

The Friends of the Spruce Grove Library wish to conduct a needs assessment, which would come at a cost of $50,000. It requested a contribution from the City of $30,000.

The project would provide the library board, Friends of the Library and the City of Spruce Grove with information on the current and future needs of the library and recommendations on how those needs could be met.
