Chestermere explores the sale of City Hall property
Situated on the shores of Chestermere Lake, City Hall is one of the most picturesque places in the community. As it is such a desirable location, Council is exploring the potential of selling the property.
“We are serious about looking into every opportunity to increase our non-residential tax base,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “City Hall sits on a highly desirable piece of lakefront property and we gain no tax revenue with our civic office being there. So we are looking at all of our options to ensure residents get the most bang for their buck.”
The property sits on 1.94 acres of waterfront property beside Chestermere Lake. With the belief that selling, renting or leasing the property could help increase non-residential taxes, Council is taking the first step to explore the option.
