Since 2011 (population 1000), Nobleford has been eligible to apply for TOWN status. 2018 population is near 1350.
The Village of Nobleford has made a request to Alberta Government to consider awarding Nobleford Town status in 2018.
- Since 2011 (population 1000), Nobleford has been eligible to apply for TOWN status and Council continues to be asked “When will Nobleford be a Town?”. In 2018, population is near 1350.
- Nobleford became a Village on February 28, 1918 and over 90 years grew to a population of 680 people. In the past 10 years, Nobleford’s population has doubled to 1350 (2016 census was 1278).
- Along with increased population in the past 10 years, we also experienced employment opportunities increased to near 300 positions, 220 new homes, 24 new industrial developments, a multi-million dollar ECS to Grade 12 school modernization, and significant new and modernized infrastructure, resulting in near provincial high asset value and minimal liabilities, all while reducing property taxes to near the lowest in Alberta.
- The Village of Nobleford is an example of healthy, prosperous, rural Alberta. Nobleford has grown up.
- This is not a question as to if we should continue to grow, but rather how we want to be recognized.
- We have all have been part of building Nobleford and TOWN status is recognition of a job well done.
- Nobleford will be 100 years old on February 28, 2018. We are hosting an event then and think it is an appropriate time for Alberta to recognize and declare Nobleford a TOWN.
