Drumheller Town Council is committed to involving the people of our community in the following decision making processes.


1) Drumheller is looking for volunteers to form a working group to share community concerns and provide input on changes to the Community Standards Bylaw. The Community Standards Bylaw regulates the conduct of people on private and public property to promote a safe and enjoyable community. Common bylaw complaints include noise, parking, litter, run down properties, weeds, trees and other nuisances. You may access the Community Standards Bylaw 16.10 on the Town's website by following the link GOV at the top and then clicking on the right hand side Bylaws and Policies.


2) Drumheller is looking for volunteers to form a second working group to share ideas about how the Town can enhance and preserve its character, scenery, history and aesthetics through the community's tourism corridor (along the primary highway route). It is proposed that Council will adopt a Tourism Corridor Bylaw in the near future.

Should you be interested in serving in this capacity, please contact Linda at 403-823-1339 or by sending an email to lhandy@dinosaurvalley.com

Thank you.

The Town of Drumheller Awarded for Best Community Economic Development Program and Marketing Project for Dinowalk – Dinosaur Street Naming Project

Last night in Banff, Alberta the Economic Development Association of Alberta (EDA) awarded the Town of Drumheller.   

Alex Metcalf Award: Which acknowledges individuals or agencies for excellence in economic development relating to the attraction, expansion or retention of business within Alberta. This award is not limited to the attraction, retention and expansion of "industry" alone and includes the development of new strategies, programs and/or developments that bring economic benefit to a community. Economic Developers Alberta recognizes up to three economic development initiatives or projects each year with this award.

Marketing Award: The Economic Developers Alberta Marketing Awards are open to all Economic Developers Alberta members, in good standing, who undertake to promote and market, with a view to improving the economic well-being of their communities.

(Other finalists for the awards were Brooks, High River and Big Lakes – Municipal District)

The awards were given for the Dinowalk / Dinosaur Street Naming Project as great examples of community collaboration and excellent media coverage in relation to the secondary naming of streets (dinosaur named streets) in Drumheller.

“I want to thank Julia Fielding and CAO, Darryl Drohomerski in particular for their support of these projects; but I also want to thank all of our staff that prepared and installed the wayfinding signage.  In particular, Bob Bremner, Gord Cunningham and Kevin Blanchett and additional staff from Infrastructure Services that made this happen on the ground,” said Paul Salvatore, Director of Community Services.

“These ideas and concepts were a product of collaboration with Urban Systems, the Economic Development Advisory Committee which includes representatives from the Drumheller Chamber of Commerce and Community Futures Big Country in addition to the Royal Tyrrell Museum and other key community members Board Chair, Summer Manca and our constant contact with Travel Drumheller.” Added Julia Fielding, Economic Development Officer for the Town of Drumheller.

“It is always great to be recognized by our peers in within the industries that we serve.  In this case, recognition from the Economic Development Association of Alberta underscores that the work that we do is excellent, but only possible with great team work and support community-wide, noted CAO Darryl Drohomerski.”

The selection of the dinosaur types and medallions took place in July 2017. Secondary street names of Drumheller dinosaurs took place in September, 2017 and the final installation of Wikipedia linked medallions will be installed during the Spring of 2018.

Digital aspects of the project will be taken-over by Travel Drumheller in order to fulfill their mandate to promote an interesting walking experience in the form of a virtual scavenger hunt that connects our guests to the stories about dinosaurs that once roamed Drumheller, over 67 million years ago.
