Chestermere Streetscape Committee offering two summer initiatives
Rain Barrel Contest:
The City’s Streetscape Committee has developed an exciting rain barrel contest for residents to show their creative decorating skills along with their innovative rain water harvesting techniques!
To participate, residents can register for the contest on the City’s website, then pick up a free rain barrel from Eco Growth Environmental, use their own rain barrel, or purchase one for $65 from the City’s Eco Centre.
Prizes will be awarded for the most creatively decorated rain barrel, and for the most innovative water capture or water harvesting system.

Community Banner Program:
A second initiative from the Chestermere Streetscape Committee invites residents to submit photos for a new set of banners that will be displayed in Anniversary Park.
“The idea behind the project is community pride and participation,” says Bea Germain, Chair of the Chestermere Streetscape Committee. “The project is open to all residents, and we are encouraging people use these banners to tell the community what living in Chestermere means to them.”
Banners can feature photos and short text or quotes that illustrate the community’s favorite local activities, pets, family, hobbies, or even their best photos of Chestermere scenery.
