2016 Annexation Area Map
In response to unprecedented growth pressure within Okotoks in recent years and forecasts for continued growth, the Town of Okotoks (the Town) is in the process of annexing lands from the Municipal District of Foothills.
The Town of Okotoks Growth Study and Financial Analysis determines a growth strategy for the Town of Okotoks over the next 60 years and provides the rationale for the Okotoks Annexation Proposal which is currently in process. It examines population increases beyond the previous population cap of 30,000 to 35,000 residents, estimates projected land requirements for development and identifies areas for expansion.
On September 23, 2013, the Town gave Notice of Annexation to the Municipal Government Board, the MD of Foothills and the relevant schools divisions.
Thank you to everyone who attended the April 20 Town & MD open house where key elements of the negotiated agreement on annexation and upcoming review of the Intermunicipal Development Plan were discussed. Your involvement in these projects is valued as we work together in the process.
