Land Supply & Growth Study
Purpose
On January 19, 2010, council approved the Land Supply and Growth Study – October 2009.

The report presents and discusses the findings of a land supply and growth survey undertaken for the Town of Rocky Mountain House in the fall of 2008. The purpose of the study is to be used as information for a sustainability plan for the Town, and general planning needs by understanding future land requirements. The planning horizon for this study is 2037.  

Result

In its motion, council recognized the importance of projecting future needs and trends to the long term development of a balanced community. Furthermore, projections on population levels, land supply, and general patterns of development assist with ensuring a sufficient supply of future residential, commercial and industrial land and the planning of municipal infrastructure, facilities, and services in response to anticipated growth.

Conclusion

Council accepted the Land Supply and Growth Study (October, 2009) as a general guide for the future projections of land needs and population levels to be used for the planning of the town and municipal services subject to the following:
  • The results and figures of the Study are not policy and have no binding effect on Council decisions
  • Further planning after the date of the Study may lead to refinement and changes from the development patterns and timing presented.
