Municipal Development Plan Project

The Summer Village of South View is currently part of a 3-component project along with 7 other municipalities.  One component is to adopt a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will be a mandatory requirement for all municipalities under the Modernized Municipal Government Act.  The Municipal Development Plan is a primary document that guides the future development and growth of the whole community.  The MDP sets the vision on how to accommodate this growth responsibly and serves as an important decision-making tool for Council, administration and all stakeholders.  As a statutory plan required by the Alberta Municipal Government Act, the MDP provides direction for Council, administration, developers and builders, property-owners, residents and adjacent municipalities.

An MDP will address several items, including:

-future land use
-future development
-municipal services 

A Public Open House was held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Darwell Seniors Hall with respect to the Draft Municipal Development Plan.
