Municipal Development Plan Survey

November 2018

This confidential survey is being conducted on behalf of the Village of Ryley as the village begins to create a new plan for its future.

Draw Prize: Though this survey is anonymous, there is space at the end to provide your name and contact information. There will be a random draw of completed surveys following the conclusion of the survey. Village staff and council will not get the surveys and will not see the names. We have hired a firm to conduct the survey and provide the village with the results.

Deadline: All surveys must be returned to the village office by December 1.

Introduction

The Government of Alberta has informed all municipalities that they need to have a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) in place. This is new for the Village of Ryley and it represents a great opportunity for residents to have input and give direction about what our village will look like in 25 years or more.

The MDP will be Ryley’s guiding document for growth. It explains the community’s vision for the future and provides a road map to achieve that vision.

Your input will be used to help determine:

  • How the villages uses undeveloped land
  • Future transportation networks
  • Environmental and heritage resource management
  • Development of utilities
  • How the municipality funds growth and development
