Weekly Mayor's Message:
Every week the Mayor shares a weekly message on the Eagle. If you missed a week, you can hear it here:
Discover Okotoks...a progressive, energetic community of over 29,000 residents situated 15 minutes south of Calgary in the beautiful Sheep River Valley. Gateway to the inspired Kananaskis Country in the Rocky Mountains, Okotoks enjoys an unparalleled view of mountain vistas and rolling foothills.
The Town of Okotoks is recognized as a leader in developing and promoting sustainability and is the home of the Drake Landing Solar Community, an enclave of 52 households that is the only solar powered community in North America.
The high standard of housing, well-planned subdivisions, numerous community parks, enviable school system, and pristine river valley provide a quality lifestyle for our residents. Our expanding business community provides many unique and varied shopping opportunities, while exceptional recreational and cultural facilities create activities for all age groups.
Okotoks is friendly and caring, home to a large number of growing families and active seniors - a vibrant, contemporary community which has retained its small town charm.
On behalf of our citizens, Town Council and Administration encourage you to visit our beautiful community and take great pleasure in extending a warm "Okotoks" welcome.
Wm. (Bill) Robertson
