Red Deer's population will double in 20 years
This presents new challenges and opportunities for the city. Where people live, how they move around in the city and quality of life are intrinsically linked, so it is necessary to adopt an integrated approach. It is key to build on Red Deer’s assets like short commuting distances and access to nature, while addressing problems such as a lack of independent mobility for non-drivers. It is crucial to act now while the city is growing. Red Deer is ready.
