The Proposed Project

Stoney Tribal Administration plans to construct a Fire Hall at the Big Horn Reserve 144A. The Fire Hall will be located south of the Ta'Otha School and will provide fire services to the community.  Activities to complete the proposed project include tree removal, clearing a young stand of mixed wood trees, levelling the site, excavation of soil, import of fill material, installation of underground servicing to connect to the waterline, fiber optic line, effluent disposal field and powerlines. The site will require backfilling and compaction of excavation areas and construction of a parking area and widening of access roads.
