One of 10 benches in Lendrum which is up for City review under the Benchmark program

Benchmark Program Under Review

Early last year, the City was going to have the plaque/ownership of the commemorative benches, expire after 10 years, and charge the donor an extra $2500, if they wished to renew, otherwise their commemorative plaque would be removed.

The action was not well received and the decision was put on hold.

Now, the City is hosting  four Drop-In Sessions to hear your thoughts about the future of the The Benchmark Program as well as the Commemorative Tree Program.
All sessions are from 5:00 - 8:00 PM

If you are an existing donor, you are also asked to contact the Benchmark Program Coordinator at 780-496-1278 or  fill out the online form to receive updates, information and give your current contact information to the City.
