Environmental Master Plan

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

This question was at the heart of creating the Town's Environmental Master Plan. Your ideas have helped us focus the Plan on the most important actions to help protect and enhance Okotoks’ built and natural environment.

The final Environmental Master Plan was approved by Council at the October 22, 2018 meeting, and developed through community consultation that began in Fall 2017.

EMP Progress Reports

Town Administration monitors progress towards meeting the strategic goals, key result areas and initiatives outlined in the Environmental Master Plan, and provides  reports to Council, which are available to the public here. Reporting provides greater accountability, transparency and understanding of both the strategic goals, progress and accomplishments.

Phases of Engagement

In alignment with the Town’s Public Participation Strategy, a robust engagement process over 12 months, between October 2017 and October 2018, helped develop and finalize the plan. It is estimated that over 1,000 residents provided input throughout the course of the engagement. Below are the results of each phase of public engagement, related to the EMP.
