NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the County of Wetaskiwin No.10 will be holding a Public Hearing to review the proposed Municipal Development Plan (MDP).
The MDP is an important planning and decision-making tool that outlines direction and strategies that inform how the County will, look, feel, and grow in the future. The purpose of the MDP is to:

- Identify where and how growth should occur; and
- Guide decision-makers and municipal spending on economic and social matters, and the environment.
As a part of the MDP review process, Council hosted 6 open houses across the County to gather public feedback which was presented to Council through a “What We Heard Report”. This Report can be viewed on the County Website at www.county.wetaskiwin.ab.ca/MDP-Review.
A copy of the proposed Municipal Development Plan can be viewed online at www.county.wetaskiwin.ab.ca/MDP-Review.
