Okotoks is known as a town that promotes sustainable living through various green initiatives that community members are actively participating in. Such initiatives include recycling to reduce garbage and carpooling to gas emissions.
During the last quarter of the year, Okotoks took it a step further in getting community members to participate in another green initiative by introducing a rebate program targeting water conservation.
Last August 11th, the $40,000 fund of Okotoks for the 2014 Residential Water Rebate Program was depleted just after 15 weeks of its launch. Over 300 homeowners participated, making this program a huge success.
To further encourage community members to conserve water, a similar program was launched—this time targeting commercial, industrial, and institutional properties in Okotoks. All non-residential property owners can apply for a rebate for a demonstrated or third party tested initiative to conserve water. This pilot program will run until December 31, 2014 or until the $10,000 program fund is depleted.
Apart from a comfortable house and a peaceful community with all the amenities you need, it is also important to find a town that is environmentally conscious should you decide to move. Ranchers’ Rise, a new residential development in Okotoks, offers all these. Aside from bringing homeowners closer to nature while still keeping them near important facilities, Ranchers’ Rise is one with the Okotoks community in encouraging its homeowners to join green programs.
