Plenty of commercial construction these days in High River as new businesses are setting up along 12th Avenue.

High River Chamber of Commerce President, Steven Muth says before they even open, those businesses are generating revenue in the town.

"Those builders are spending money locally on trades and will generate property tax revenue for the Town. They'll also support jobs for whatever businesses move in. The developers obviously have confidence in High River heading into 2018, so if they do, we all should."

Muth says when you add in municipal taxes, and other indirect spinoffs through hiring employees to the dollars they make and spend in High River, each new business will be a money maker for the Town.
