2009 Sustainable Okotoks - Where To From Here?

2009 Public Consultation Process
Calgary Metropolitan Plan
The proposed Calgary Metropolitan Plan was considered by the General Assembly of the Calgary Regional Partnership and adopted on June 19, 2009. At a special Council Meeting held on June 15, 2009, the Council of the Town of Okotoks unanimously passed the following motion:
“With the understanding that Okotoks reaffirms with the Calgary Regional Partnership the current growth model of the Town of Okotoks which includes:
Growth to but not beyond the urban growth boundaries as shown in the Okotoks/Foothills IDP (population of 30,000);
  • Explore sub-regional water supply solutions which enable Okotoks to continue to live within the natural carrying capacity of the Sheep River watershed rather than a regional water pipeline; and
  • Work with the MD of Foothills during the CMP transition period to determine appropriate growth and development patterns in and around Okotoks into the future and consult with the public if a growth model beyond the 1998 MDP is to be considered;

Now Therefore the Town of Okotoks supports the proposed Calgary Metropolitan Plan as recommended by the Executive Committee of the Calgary Regional Partnership at the General Assembly of the CRP on June 19, 2009.“

Okotoks Council made a decision from a mandate from the community after conducting an extensive public consultation program exploring the pros and cons of each option.
Public Consultation Process
The Town of Okotoks provided two Public Information Sessions on March 12th and 14th, 2009 that included an overview of CRP's Regional Land Use Plan as well as Okotoks' Municipal Development Plan and Inter-Municipal Development Plan and a few highlights to the changes necessary to facilitate the various growth scenarios. These sessions provided information as well as interactive opportunities for the public to make inquiries and discuss the past and future plans for Okotoks.
