Our Town

So this is where we live. Don’t you just love the “Population” figure on the sign…makes us think of one of those western movies where the population figure is crossed through and replaced with a lower number after one of the locals gets killed!

You can see reference to the Okotoks Town website…www.okotoks.ca. There’s lots of information on there including maps where you’ll be able to see our Crystal Shores area in the north of the town and the lake that our house backs onto.

They seem very keen on sustainable living here and the plan is to cap the growth of the town when the population reaches 30,000, the idea being that they think this is the maximum number of people that can sensibly be serviced by the Sheep River, that flows through the centre of the town. According to the sign above, we’re just over half way there at 17,000.
