Municipal Development Plan


A Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is a statutory document that provides broad-term guidelines for future development in the municipality. Provincial legislation requires all municipalities with populations greater than 3,500 to develop and adopt an MDP.

The plan provides a framework for the growth and development of the municipal district over a long term. The MDP also provides policy direction that helps form the basis for the preparation of area structure plans and the Land Use Bylaw.

The MDP represents the overall vision and growth ideals of the community. The Municipal District of Bonnyville's current MDP was adopted in September of 2007. The M.D.'s current MDP is being reviewed and updated.

Where we're at

A survey to get feedback from our residents and ratepayers was completed on February 28, 2023.

There were three open houses held at the end of February. You can find the presentation here and the information boards presented at the open houses here.

We are currently working on the creation of a draft MDP document utilizing information collected from the online survey and open houses.
