The Bragg Creek Flood Mitigation Project was issued a Certificate of Completion in October 2022. The certificate confirms that project works are fully operational to perform for the purpose intended of flood management. Minor deficiencies such as landscaping, fencing, and final clean-up activities remain.
In accordance with Section 534 of the Municipal Government Act, Notice of Completion of the Flood Barrier Structures (Municipal Public Works) was advertised in the December 2022 edition of the High County News. In addition, the Notice, along with Section 534, was mailed on November 28, 2022, to landowners that abut the Municipal Public Works. Deadline to submit a compensation claim is February 3, 2023.
The County will review claims for eligibility after the deadline of February 3. Through the claim process, the County cannot provide advice or information on whether your property might be eligible for compensation. Please follow the instructions outlined in the letter to submit a claim. Claims must be sent by registered mail. Claims sent via unregistered mail, emails, and fax, will not be accepted.
The County continues reclamation of areas disturbed on private land including seeding, fencing, and special conditions, in accordance with land agreements entered with approximately 63 landowners. Work will continue through the winter of 2022 and into 2023.
The County is running several projects in Bragg Creek. If you are looking for more information, visit our Plans Under Review section.
