The community of 38,000 will use the Intercity Express, with three $700,000 long buses Airdrie council has purchased. The provincial government's 2008 pledge of $2 billion toward regional buses or trains had Calgary and its neighbours plot a long-term transit system featuring express buses and eventually commuter trains.

airdrie alberta: Does your Tax assessment tell you what your house is worth in todays market? - 03/07/10 10:58 AM
 
Does your Tax assessment tell you what your house is worth in todays market?
 
The quick answer is NO, but let me explain this bit further.  The market value of your home today is based on calculations done today, not based on the market values at last years tax cut off day.   On average the market evaluations real estate agents are doing now will be higher than your local tax assessment for 2010, at least in the City of Airdrie.  Now there are a few exceptions such as the community of Reunion that saw a significant increase due to … (1 comments)

The Canals of Airdrie designed to collect and distribute naturally occuring ground waters, and provide storm-surge protection, the Canals in Airdrie eventually flow into Nose Creek where the waters are naturally disbursed.
