Environmental Master Plan

What can we do to protect and enhance our environment today, and for future generations?

This question is at the heart of the Town of Okotoks’ efforts to create an Environmental Master Plan. Your ideas will help us focus the Plan on the most important actions to help protect and enhance Okotoks’ built and natural environment.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Okotoks Environmental Master Plan Interactive Community Workshop back in November! We are now beginning the second phase of developing the Environmental Master Plan.

In addition to the in-person workshop below, watch for the upcoming online survey and look for us at pop-up events around the community throughout the winter!

Past Public Feedback & Reporting Back

November Stakeholder Workshops

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the stakeholder workshops on November 23 & 24 and  to everyone who stopped by on Saturday, November 25 to share their thoughts, ideas and priorities for protecting the environment.  Here is a summary of what you've told us:
 

SUMMARY REPORT

In 2014, the Town of Okotoks heard what citizens wanted their future community to look like. The resulting vision called for us to continue our  leadership as a sustainable community. This Environmental Master Plan is a chance to turn this vision into a reality! 
The Environmental Master Plan will be a long-term community plan that identifies, prioritizes and sets specific goals and targets for key environmental initiatives for the Town and the community. It will encompass all aspects of the environment, from developing new land, to sustainable practices for energy, water, waste, emissions, urban forests, construction, and transportation networks – anything that impacts the natural world. 
 

For any questions about the Environmental Master Plan, please contact Dawn Smith, the Town’s Environment & Sustainability Coordinator.
