Town Plan Review & Rewrite

Town Plan Review and Rewrite - Town Plan Survey – Deadline May 31, 2019

The Town’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP) (recently re-named the “Town Plan”) is almost 20 years old. Coaldale has grown over the past two decades and is now at a pivotal point in its history. Annexation has just been completed and an unprecedented capital plan was approved for 2019-2021. While these short-term achievements have helped solidify general growth areas and priority capital projects, there needs to be a plan for Coaldale’s longer-term aspirations.

The world has changed a lot in 20 years. Coaldale has 50% more residents; we no longer design communities around the need to access video rental stores; only about 1 out of 3 people owned a cell phone when the current plan was written.

Background on the Project Working Group


What do we want the community to be in the next 20 years?

An MDP (Town Plan) is the highest-level statutory document that guides a community’s growth and change. The Town’s needs to be rewritten to ensure Coaldale progresses in a way that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable, and reflective of the diverse perspectives of the community.

The Town Plan review and rewrite Project Charter and Public Participation Plan have been approved by Council.

As a part of the Public Participation Plan, a project working group was formed and consists of:

  • Up to 2 members of Town Council
  • Public Members of the Municipal Planning Commission
  • Public Members of the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board
  • 6 Members of the Community

Please call or email if you want to know more about the project.
