Bylaw 6265 - Municipal Development Plan (MDP)

What is this bylaw about?

Learn more about what a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is

The Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is a bylaw that sets the City's vision for sustainable growth in the present and future, with the goal of improving our quality of life, addressing the changing needs of our City, and fostering a prosperous economy. This bylaw will replace the previous MDP, which helped support projects in our community like Legacy Park, CASA, the Helen Schuler Nature Centre, and many more.

The new MDP will build on the existing vision and desired outcomes of the old MDP, while adding more detailed and measureable goals, as well as a new framework to implement our goals and measure the success of our projects.

The MDP aims to make Lethbridge a City that is well designed, economically prosperous, healthy, diverse,  culturally vibrant, environmentally responsible, and supportive of our regional partners.
