1. Utilizing outdoor recreational opportunities 

Katrina Cohrs, the executive director for the Sparwood and District Chamber of Commerce, said the community is focusing on its strengths, including re-creational activities such as fly-fishing and ATVing.

2. Affordable housing for everyone

Cherrywood Boulevard, a new subdivision in Sparwood Heights, has plenty of residential lots on the market. Reasonably priced, these lots are close to walking paths and the Whiskey Jack Golf Course.

3. A new brand, a new look and feel

The District of Sparwood is engaged in a rebranding exercise that will allow it to market the community more effectively.

4. An increase of business networking opportunities

The Sparwood and District Chamber of Commerce is providing business owners with more social networking opportunities like workshops, seminars and luncheons.

5. Breaking ground at Whiskey Jack Resort

Show homes are being constructed at the Whiskey Jack golf resort community.
