Re-surveying is continuing for lots destroyed in last year’s wildfire.

Crews will be in Abasand, Beacon Hill, Draper, Saprae Creek, Stone Creek, Waterways, and Wood Buffalo looking to re-establish property boundaries. This process looks to place “monuments” or “pins” at the corners of each property.

Back in January, council approved the project – adding they would cover the cost.

Most of the properties have been surveyed with work on the remaining private lots owned by the government of Alberta starting to get underway. The municipality notes they will also be doing an investigative survey for all other properties to re-establish these monuments.

Residents are being reminded to avoid moving or disturbing the monuments or pins.
