Public Hearings

There are two proposed amendments to the Town of Cardston Land Use Bylaw. Provincial legislation requires that there be a public hearing for every change to the Land Use Bylaw. The first proposed change is an update required by the Government regarding permits and applications for developments. The Second change is a request to have two medium density residential lots (R4) rezoned as normal residential (R1) so the owner can build a single family dwelling instead of a duplex by the Golf Course.

Below are the Legal notices advertising the public hearings as required by legislation.

KAIROS Blanket Exercise

On Tuesday September 17th, Mayor and Council invited Cardston County Council and representatives from the School Division, Chamber of Commerce, and local church leadership of all denominations to participate in a KAIROS Blanket Exercise facilitated by the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.

Throughout the exercise, the area of the blankets were reduced.

Throughout the exercise, the area of the blankets were reduced.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous rights history we are rarely taught. Developed in response to the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples – which recommended education on Canadian-Indigenous history as one of the key steps to reconciliation, and used during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission - the Blanket Exercise covers over 500 years of history in a 2-hour participatory workshop. Participants take on the roles of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Standing on blankets that represent the land, they walk through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and contemporary events, through to reconciliation. They are directed by facilitators serving as the Narrator and European Settlers. Participants are drawn into the experience by playing a roll, using traditional trading items, reading scrolls and carrying cards which ultimately determine their outcomes. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates, imparts awareness, empathy, understanding and opportunities for reconciliation. The exercise is followed by a traditional Talking Circle in which participants have the opportunity to discuss their experience and de-brief under the guidance of an Elder and Traditional Knowledge Keeper.

The Blankets represented the land the First Nations inhabited.

New Pavement 2019

UPDATE: 2019-09-03
Due to an unexpected delay, the paving in Town is being postponed for one week. Paving will commence the week of September 9th.


Beginning Tuesday, September 3rd, immediately following the long weekend, paving crews will be in Cardston to lay new pavement in multiple areas around town. Paving will be ongoing until Friday, September 13th.

Please obey all barricades and signage throughout the paving a curing processes. The paving process is not complete until the seal coats have been given adequate time to fully cure, which takes a minimum of 24 hours. The longevity of the pavement depends on receiving an adequate curing period. Driving on the seal coat will cause damage to both the road and your vehicle. The barricades will remain up, and the roads will remain closed until the roads are ready to be driven on. While it should go without saying, please do not drive on roads that are marked as "closed" until all barricades are removed.

The Town thanks everyone in advance for their patience and cooperation.


9th Avenue West Road Closed For Repairs

The repairs will be from the bridge to 12th Street West, but 7th Street West will remain open to access Fairway Blvd and the Golf Course. The road will be closed until the first phase of work is complete, which may take a few days. Please avoid the area and plan an alternate route.
