INNISFAIL - The Innisfail & District Historical Society has organized a Doors Open event, a community celebration that is open to local groups, organizations, and businesses.

Citizens can seize a map from the Innisfail & District Historical Village that will help them collect stickers at each participating location.

The Town of Innisfail will participate in the Doors Open event by hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23 at the administrative offices on 53rd Street.

In addition to displaying historical documents and newspaper stories for the public to learn more about local history, the town is also also reaching out to citizens about the work being done to develop a new Municipal Development Plan (MDP).

“We see this as a chance to talk to people about their vision for the future of Innisfail,” said Gordon Shaw, the Town of Innisfail’s manager of community development.

“This process allows residents to share their feelings about our community, and we can then use that input to help shape future development.”

As part of the MDP process, town staff are seeking input through a survey, which will remain open until the end of October and conclude with a draw for a $300 gift card from the Central Alberta Co-op grocery store in Innisfail.

Each survey respondent will automatically be entered in the draw. Members of the public can complete the survey by visiting
