North Red Deer is a former village in central Alberta, Canada within the City of Red Deer.[1]

The village was located on the north shore of the Red Deer River along the Calgary and Edmonton (C&E) Railway,[2] which was later acquired by the Canadian Pacific Railway. The former village is located within Red Deer's Riverside Meadows neighbourhood,[1][3] with portions also being located within the neighbourhoods of Highland Green and Oriole Park.[4]

History[edit]

North Red Deer was established as a hamlet in 1894 upon completion of the C&E rail line, including the bridge over the Red Deer River.[5] It incorporated as the Village of North Red Deer on February 17, 1911,[5] with the ministerial order being signed on June 18, 1911.[1] Walter Webb became the village's first mayor on March 13, 1911.[6]

After a previously unratified attempt in 1946,[6] the Village of North Red Deer amalgamated with the City of Red Deer on January 1, 1948.[1][5] The last village council meeting occurred on December 24, 1947.[1][7]

Over the course of its incorporation, North Red Deer grew from a population of 304 in 1911[8] to a population of 698 in 1946.[9]

In 1999, the City of Red Deer renamed the area of the former village to Riverside Meadows.[7] In 2000, the city adopted the Riverside Meadows Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP),[4] which was replaced by a new ARP in 2009.[10] The City of Red Deer celebrated the centennial of the Village of North Red Deer on August 27, 2011.[1]
