Metro Mayors Alliance commits to work as one Edmonton Metro Region, including the city of Edmonton and Parkland County, among others

The Metro Mayors Alliance signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining a commitment to plan, decide, and act as one Edmonton Metro Region on regionally significant issues Monday morning. The Alliance say the MOU is “the first step in a process recommended by the Advisory Panel on Metro Edmonton’s Future.”
