High River council meets for the only time this month Monday July 17, 2017.

It's a pretty busy agenda with a number of delegations, including the Heritage Advisory Board's request for a Heritage Management Plan and the Sheppard Family Park Society and its request for a Park Master Plan.

Cascade Recovery will also appear before council to discuss a curbside recycling plan.

And council will hear a presentation from the Social Sustainability Collective and Our High River on a project to "build capacity in social and human services in the town" using a $1 million grant from the Canadian Red Cross.

Harmonizing school and playground speed zones will be one of the items High River Council will deal with at Monday's meeting.

The Town's Police Committee put forward the idea of bringing the speed zone into line since many school grounds are used as playgrounds and not all school are in at the same time.

Under the proposal, 30-kilometre speed zones would be enforced from 7:30 a.m. until one hour after sunset year round.

Council will also get a final report from the Ad Hoc Recovery Program Advocacy Committee before it disbands.

The meeting starts at 3 p.m. in the Council Chambers.
