The City of Grande Prairie will be holding two public information sessions in May for the Municipal Development Plan. According to the city these free sessions, which are taking place on May 16th and 18th, will provide residents with education on the MDP and also allow the community to give their feedback on the city’s key focuses and policies.
Mayor Jackie Clayton says the city encourages the residents to share their thoughts on shaping Grande Prairie’s future.
“The Municipal Development Plan Review provides an opportunity for residents to learn about and provide input on key focus areas and policies that set the vision for how Grande Prairie will grow and develop,” Clayton says.
Senior Planner for the city Allison Downing adds the Municipal Development Plan Review is an opportunity for the community to work together to “build a better future for Grande Prairie.”
“By engaging in this process, we can ensure that our community grows in a sustainable and inclusive way that benefits everyone,” Downing says.
Along with the in-person sessions the city is also inviting residents to complete an online MDP survey and share their thoughts on what they believe the city’s priorities for growth and development should be. Residents have until May 21st to complete the survey.
The information sessions will take place from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. on both the 16th and 18th at Centre 2000.
