News & Updates

Public Input Requested
The Summer Village of Yellowstone is currently part of a 3-component project along with 7 other municipalities.  One component is to adopt a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will be a mandatory requirement for all municipalities under the Modernized Municipal Government Act.  The Municipal Development Plan is a primary document that guides the future development and growth of the whole community. The MDP sets the vision on how to accommodate this growth responsibly and serves as an important decision-making tool for Council, administration and all stakeholders.  As a statutory plan required by the Alberta Municipal Government Act, the MDP provides direction for Council, administration, developers and builders, property-owners, residents and adjacent municipalities.   

An MDP will address several items, including:

-future land use
-future development
-coordination
-transportation
-municipal services 

Part of the process of creating and eventually adopting an MDP includes Public Consultation and Input.  ​Please see links below to engage in this Public Consultation Process:
