BRAGG CREEK, AB, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Timing is everything in today's
global economy, and the timing could hardly be better for the hamlet of
Bragg Creek to come into its own as the crown jewel of Canada's new
'Golden Horseshoe' for the 21st Century.
Blessed with unparalleled natural beauty, close proximity to one of
Canada's fastest-growing urban centres -- and one of the global energy
industry's major power players -- and unprecedented infrastructure
investment, the gateway to the world-renowned Kananaskis Country
forestry reserve is perfectly positioned to benefit from strong
investment growth for years to come, enthuses Dwayne Zaba, publisher of
Bragg - About the Creek magazine.
"Imagine if such an opportunity existed 20 minutes from Vancouver or
Toronto 40 years ago. The entire horseshoe-shaped Rocky View County,
which surrounds Calgary on three sides, is an outstanding investment
"Although Bragg Creek has long been perceived as one of the most
beautiful places on earth, the rare convergence of beauty, location and
timing is making it one of the most exciting investment opportunities
in Canada," Zaba states. "Bragg Creek is, quite literally, a diamond
in the rough."
Released tomorrow, the current issue of Bragg - About the Creek uncovers the key fundamentals underpinning Bragg Creek's enormous
economic potential, including:
* Infrastructure stimulus program. The substantial funding just received from the municipal, provincial
and federal governments for communal water and sewage infrastructure
provides the hamlet with an unprecedented opportunity for larger-scale
commercial development, paving the way for significant community
investment that will dramatically enhance Bragg Creek's amenities,
appeal and growth.
* Location, location, location. Adjacent to the vast 4,200-square-kilometre Kananaskis Country, which
directly extends into the world-famous Banff National Park, Bragg Creek
is located a mere 30-minutes drive from the City of Calgary -- often
cited by the world's leading economists as the best city in Canada and
worldwide for sustained future growth opportunities.
As the main urban economic driver for the Province of Alberta, the
Calgary region is currently projected to more than double its
population to approximately three million people by 2050.
* Natural Beauty. The hamlet's awe-inspiring, world-class beauty is shaped by three
abundant natural resources that literally define the essence of Bragg
The eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains are home to a dazzling array
of flora and fauna, providing a stunning year-round natural backdrop
and a myriad of recreational opportunities;
The sparkling, crystal-clear Elbow River meanders through the middle of
Bragg Creek and supplies fresh water for about a third of Alberta
The unrivaled, majestic beauty of Kananaskis Country, home to one of the
world's most expansive and pristine forests, is literally Bragg Creek's
"In my extensive travels to various parts of the world, I have been
fortunate to have visited many special places, but the most special
place of all is Kananaskis Country," says the Honourable Peter
Lougheed, former Alberta Premier and the founder of Kananaskis Country,
in an exclusive interview also featured in the Fall 2011 issue of Bragg - About the Creek, available on newsstands tomorrow.
