Municipal Development Plan

The Town of Strathmore is excited to announce we are creating a new Municipal Development Plan!

Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for our residents  and to establish/maintain a desirable community where people can live, work and play! 

Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is a framework used by municipalities to address long-term community development, land use, and growth in a responsible way. Click to see the current MDP:

Municipal Development Plan Bylaw No. 14-03

Have your say! Fill out a Survey!

Development Services has prepared a survey to collect feedback, see below:

MDP Survey


Public and stakeholder engagement is critical to shaping the new Municipal Development Plan!

Everyone’s voice is important, and we would like to hear from as many people as possible. The feedback collected through the engagement process will be used to inform decision-making which will help shape the future of Strathmore!

Over the next several months Development Services will be hosting pop-up events around town, asking for residents feedback on various topics in relation to the municipal development plan. Each section will be encompassed in a one to two week timeframe with feedback presented to Council.

Project Timeline

The Municipal Development Plan Update will follow the timeline below. This timeline is estimated to reach completion by approximately June 2020. This timeline, however, is subject to the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB) apprvals process and may change.  All timeline changes will be reflected in the timeline immediately.
