Municipal Development Plan Review 2020

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:

Red Deer County hosted four public input sessions for residents and landowners to learn about the proposed updates to the MDP in August and September. Thank you to all individuals who came out to our open houses both in person and virtually, your input was greatly appreciated!

A public hearing has been set for Bylaw No. 2020/20, a bylaw to adopt the Municipal Development Plan for Red Deer County on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 1:30 p.m. The public hearing will be held within the Council Chambers at the County office at 38106 Rge Rd 275, Red Deer County, Alberta (west of Hwy 2 on 32 Street / C&E Trail Overpass).

Council will hear from anyone claiming to be affected by the bylaw. The hearing is informal and persons wishing to speak will be requested to state their name and address upon being recognized by the Chair.

Comments may be submitted in writing to or may be mailed to the County office. These written submissions may be made public, subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
