Introducing, Didsbee Santuary!

INVASIVE WEED SPECIES IN DIDSBURY, ALBERTA
Noxious species are species that landowners must control to prevent from spreading. These non-native species are already widely distributed in Alberta that have a significant economic or ecological impact and can spread easily from existing infestations onto adjoining properties. Relatively easily controlled in small numbers, they can become unmanageable if left uncontrolled and can have a significant impact when abundant.

Open Spaces Asset Management Plan
Outdoor Spaces serve the community in its entirety. Parks, Playgrounds, and Pathways are community spaces that promote healthy lifestyles, attract tourism and investment, and foster a socially-coherent community.
In 2021, the Town of Didsbury received a grant from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (Federal Government) through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) to:
- Obtain accurate and detailed inventory listing for Outdoor Space assets
- Evaluate the condition of each asset within the inventory listing
- Assess the risk of failure of each asset within the inventory listing
- Prepare preventative maintenance and replacement plans for Open Space assets
The primary objectives of the Open Spaces Asset Management Plan are to maintain the current level of service that Outdoor Space assets provide, ensure the safety of all users of the Open Space assets, and establish fiscally responsible plans to maintain and replace Open Space assets accordingly.
