Environmental Master Plan Engagement

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.

Final Draft Environmental Master Plan (EMP)

Please find the draft Environmental Master Plan below, which was developed through community consultation that began in Fall 2017. The public is invited to provide comments on the final draft of the Plan by Sunday, October 14, 2018.
