Project Background

The Town of Redwater has recently begun the process of reviewing and updating its Municipal Development Plan to ensure it is able to continue to effectively guide the development and evolution of the municipality as well as reflect the future aspirations of the public.

A Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is the central guiding document for a municipality. It establishes and communicates the long-term desired land use framework for a community, and serves as a high-level blueprint showing how a community is planned to change over time and the shape it will take in the future. A Municipal Development Plan also provides direction related to the growth, urban form, infrastructure, investments, the environment and social initiatives. 

Project Timeline

The Municipal Development Plan (MDP) update began in April of this year and will run until the end of october. The project will consist of three phases and each phase will have unique opportunities to get involved! The project is currently in phase 1, which focuses on establishing the community's vision for the future and the key principles that will guide the town’s evolution. 

Upcoming Engagement Opportunities

Stay tuned to this webpage for upcoming engagement opportunities for phase 1. From May through to July the following engagement opportunities will be available:
