Project Overview

Report: What We Heard during the Imagine phase of public engagement.

The Town of Rocky Mountain House is preparing a new Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw to guide growth and development over the next 20 years. These documents establish how Rocky Mountain House grows, what development looks like, and how to best support the daily needs of residents, visitors, and businesses alike.

We will be seeking input from residents throughout the process to ensure that these new documents reflect your vision for the future. You will have many opportunities to participate in the process. Check back to this site often to learn about upcoming engagement opportunities and to keep up-to-date on project progress.

What is the Municipal Development Plan (MDP)?

The MDP is the road map for long-term development of the town. It establishes a shared vision for the future and outlines a path for getting there.

Rocky Mountain House experienced its first ever decline in population over a 5-year period between 2011 and 2016. This coincided with the recent decline in Alberta’s oil and gas industry. Preparing a new MDP presents an opportunity for the Town to re-visit what it wants to be and how it plans to get there.

What is the Land Use Bylaw?

The LUB provides clear regulatory direction for land use and building to ensure successful implementation of the MDP. While the MDP provides the road map, the LUB provides the guidance to see it through by regulating use and development of land and buildings within the Town. It sets out various zoning districts, acceptable uses within each area, and how decisions on development applications are made.
