Municipal Development Plan Review 2022

What is the Municipal Development Plan?

The Municipal Development Plan (“MDP”) is the lead longterm planning and decision-making policy for the MD. The purpose of the MDP is to provide clear direction on how the municipality will look, feel and grow in the future. There will be multiple consultations in 2022 and 2023, starting with the Visioning Sessions. For a copy of the current MDP, visit:

What are the Visioning Sessions?

The Visioning Sessions are an opportunity to define the goals of the MDP, and discuss broadly what residents and ratepayers see as the future of MD of Bighorn.

Why is a review of the MDP needed?

The MD of Bighorn MDP was adopted in 2012 and requires updating to address new challenges. The review provides a great opportunity for public engagement with residents, stakeholders and government agencies; and to reflect current prioritized growth in the MD.
