Bragg Creek: Gateway to Prosperity

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 opportunity."

"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 Creek:

  1. 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;

  2. The sparkling, crystal-clear Elbow River meanders through the middle of Bragg Creek and supplies fresh water for about a third of Alberta residents;

  3. The unrivaled, majestic beauty of Kananaskis Country, home to one of the world's most expansive and pristine forests, is literally Bragg Creek's backyard.

"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.
