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. The development of an Environmental Master Plan (EMP) is a chance to turn this vision into a reality!
The Environmental Master Plan is 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 encompasses 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.
It will also serve as the Town’s tool to create a more sustainable, livable community for current and future residents.
Please find the final Environmental Master Plan below, which was approved by Council at the October 22, 2018 meeting, and developed through community consultation that began in Fall 2017.
