Medicine Hat Municipal Development Plan Approved
The MDP represents a significant new path forward for the City. It seeks to manage growth through a balance of intensification and greenfield development, puts in place new design criteria, identifies multi-modal transportation options and prioritizes the Downtown as a focal point of the community. By using a series of principles as a guide for policy, the new MDP ensures there is a direct connection between the values of the community and direction of the Plan. In order to successfully achieve the community`s vision, the MDP also includes a comprehensive implementation component.
The passage of the MDP is the culmination of three years of work by pA and the City that began with the Growth Management Strategy, and included a series of consultations with the public, stakeholders, administration and City Council.
