The Municipal Planning Commission meetings are open to the public and typically occur on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  The agenda is available here the week before the meeting.

Please note that while MPC meetings are open to the public, they are not Public Hearings. The most effective way to submit feedback on a particular proposal is in writing in advance of the meeting to the Planning and Development department, who can then attach it to the public agenda package. MPC members may, at their discretion, ask questions of administration or any affected parties relating to the agenda during the meeting.

Council has updated the Fee For Service Bylaw for 2017.  The bylaw is available here.  The fee schedule in the Bylaw will take effect Jan. 1, 2017.

The Alberta Rural Organic Waste to Resources Network (AROWRN) wants you to know more about the safe and cost-effective conversion of municipal wastewater and biosolids to useful woody biomass resources, through the use of fast-growing poplar and willow. Our group was formed with support from the Alberta Rural Development Network to share information arising from research projects supported by federal and provincial funding since 2006. These poplar and willow projects have demonstrated technologies that are in use around the world, in a context useful for Alberta organizations and based on Alberta’s climate and soil conditions.

The 2017 Conference will take place June 14 and 15 at the Augustana Campus and includes a tour of the Camrose County - Ohaton Lagoon Willow Project and Wood Biomass Boiler.

For more information, and to register for the 2017 conference, please visit the AROWRN website.
