Municipal Development Plan

Help Shape the Future of Fort Saskatchewan!

The City of Fort Saskatchewan is in the final stages of developing the new Municipal Development Plan (MDP). The MDP is an important planning and decision-making tool that provides strategies and policies to inform the work of City staff (like planners, engineers, and parks folks). The Plan guides how the City looks, feels, and functions as we grow to a community of 50,000 residents.

Draft Plan

After over 4,400 community comments, we have a draft Plan. Thank you to all the residents that have helped shape the Plan to date.

We are now looking for your feedback on the draft MDP. You can view the draft below and leave your comments directly in the document*. This engagement will close after September 27.

MDP Draft Policies Engagement

The Community Direction Statement (CDS) and Pillars were created following the My Fort. My City. My Say. public engagements and validated with a series of public engagements in the Fall of 2019.

The Growth Strategy is our approach to fulfilling CDS and Pillars. The video below explains the strategy.

The following policy sections of the MDP were brought to the public in focus groups and online questionnaires in February, March and August of 2020:

  • Mobility
  • Natural Systems & Green Infrastructure
  • Our Neighbourhoods
    • General
    • Downtown
    • Established Neighbourhoods
    • Developing Neighbourhoods
    • Future Urban Area
  • City-Wide
  • Infrastructure & Servicing
  • Economic Development
  • Managing City Growth

To help explain our approach to these policy sections we’ve created the videos below.

Online engagement

The engagement schedule was disrupted due to COVID-19. We resumed public engagement August 7, 2020 for the remaining policy sections of the MDP. We are working on gathering results and will present them to Council on September 15, 2020 with the Draft MDP.
