The City of Lacombe's new Municipal Development Plan (MDP), Growing Lacombe, has moved one step closer to being approved.

The City of Lacombe’s new Municipal Development Plan (MDP), Growing Lacombe, has moved one step closer to being approved.

Councillors approved second reading of the important document that sets out guidelines for growth and development for the City over the coming years, during their regular council meeting on May 25th.

A public hearing was also held, for the City to hear concerns from the public and affected organizations regarding the MDP.

Issues brought forward during the public hearing included the treatment of environmental land and setbacks, the development of the land north of the Lakes area, the North Collector Road plan and some minor mapping discrepancies.

A representative from Burman University also attended to bring forward three issues regarding the key transportation route map, the College Business Park area and a text change.

Council previously gave first reading to the bylaw on April 27th.

After the public hearing concluded, council addressed some of the issues that were brought forward and chose to stall a third reading until they could again review the document.

After the tweaks are made to the document, council will review it again for a final time before reaching third reading at an upcoming council meeting.
