News Release:

The County of Paintearth is announcing the “going live” of a new website designed to feature the Crowfoot Crossing Industrial Park located at the intersection of Highways 36 & 12. CROWFOOTCROSSING.CA will be the main tool that the County can use in pointing developers to the region’s information about traffic, logistics, and benefits of locating in a rural area.

As the County pursues future tenants to purchase lots within the park, this online information repository is aimed at being a one-stop-shop for prospective clients in the heavy transport, plant protein, hospitality, and agricultural services fields.  Combined with extensive vehicle count statistics, CROWFOOTCROSSING.CA is positioning itself where “Haul Roads Lead Here” and directional catch phrases such as “Fort Mac to Fort Worth” and “Red Deer to Saskatoon” and many points in between. 

With nearly 5,000 vehicles a day traversing the intersection of Hwys 12 & 36, the County hopes to bring a focus back to the benefits of rural Alberta, and what we have to offer.  For more information, please visit CROWFOOTCROSSING.CA.
