Michelle Young for Chestermere Council in 2017


Building our Future

It's Time for Change

Having the opportunity to serve the residents of Chestermere as a member of city council would be an incredible honour.  Chestermere has had many wonderful changes over the years but has also had its' share of struggles and growing pains along the way.  

With a rapid growth rate, Chestermere is no longer the sleepy lake village it once was, however its residents continue to have that small town feel of community.   Given the opportunity to serve Chestermere residents, a few of my priorities would be:

Many of us agree that we would like to see a pause put on residential development and focus on diversifying our tax base and sustaining the residents that are currently here before increasing our population


 We all want Chestermere to be somewhere that young people come to, or those that were raised here,  stay to raise their families, live, work and can grow old here.  That being said I would like to see the following included for discussion:

  • a living facility for seniors
  • more things for our youth and young adults to do
  • less focus on retailers and more on sustainable businesses that can employ our residents and keep them in our community

"Chestermere is a beautiful place to call home, but we need to ensure it's residents are connected, provided for and given the opportunity to grow old here.  The time is now to preserve our roots and build our future"

Our first task with a new council should be a thorough look at city spending, ensuring that city projects are done in appropriate priority and on a necessity basis -- with strict budgets and honest time frames
