  • Council was informed, in response to a Notice of Motion, that the County land currently occupied by the Cochrane and District Agricultural Society is not on a disposal list, and will not be sold unless a future Council Resolution is passed to do so. Council directed Administration to prepare a background report on the land and the County’s lease with the Agricultural Society. Council will then strike a committee to look at the long-term options for the property which, following annexation, is now located within the boundaries of the Town of Cochrane.
