Village of Glenwood
 
Drainage Project 2020:
There will be excavation and traffic interruption during the next two - three weeks in the north half of the village. Specific locations will be posted on the village bulletin board kiosk and the Post Office for your reference. Immediate neighbors of the affected areas will also be notified.
We are digging to enlarge culverts and clean up drainage ditches to improve the flow of drainage water in the village. This is an ongoing issue and as problem areas are identified, we are working at improvements in those areas.
If you have any questions about the project, please contact the village office at 626.3233. Thanks.

The Village of Glenwood is a rural, family oriented community northwest of Cardston. Originally part of the great Cochrane Ranch, 640 acres were divided off to become the Village of Glenwood. The Town site was divided into blocks of 8 acres each, and building lots of one acre each with streets 8 rods wide running at right angles through the Town. When the Town blocks ended, ten acre lots were surveyed so that the Town residents could have a small pasture for a few cows.
