Red Deer County’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is a high level plan that was approved in 2012. It provides guidance for land use development for the entire County. The Municipal Government Act requires municipalities across Alberta to review their MDP regularly, therefore, it was time from administration to undertake a review of the plan.
In late 2019, Red Deer County sent out a survey to agricultural landowners, seeking input on key agricultural policies found within the current MDP. A copy of the Rural Residential Survey can be found here:
A series of six open houses were held throughout the County in early 2020 in follow-up to the responses received from the survey. This feedback ultimately helped guide our approach for the MDP review. The results of the rural residential survey can be found here:
Currently, Red Deer County is hosting four public input sessions for residents and landowners to learn about the proposed updates to the MDP. Public input sessions will be held at Red Deer County Center (38106 Rge Rd 275, Red Deer County):
