Whitecourt crews to start green space maintenance projects next week

Posted on:

Whitecourt crews will be undertaking tree maintenance and FireSmart vegetation management projects in green spaces throughout the hilltop area starting June 10, 2024.   

Projects involve falling and removing dying or damaged trees to reduce the risk to local infrastructure (fences, sheds, etc.), as well as completing FireSmart vegetation management practices to reduce the potential impact of forest fires in the community. 

Work areas include:

  • between the Whitecourt Healthcare Centre and Highway 43 Pathway;
  • between Caxton Street and Pineview Road/Park Drive North;
  • west of Southland Park; and,
  • south of Park Court and Park Lane.

Crews will be working between 7am and 5pm Monday through Friday, and will be using chainsaws and equipment to complete the work.  The public is asked to obey all posted signs and barricades while staff perform this work. 

If you have questions about the work, please contact the Whitecourt Public Works Coordinator at 780-778-2705.
