Red Deer County is overhauling its primary planning document and is looking for feedback from residents.
A series of open houses have been organized beginning on April 19 to give the public an opportunity to review the draft policies.
Those policies are based on public input reviewed at community workshops and a survey, best practices and review by administration.
Among the key policy areas are: agricultural land preservation, multi-lot country residential subdivisions, commercial and industrial development, environmental stewardship, hamlet development, infrastructure and inter-municipal relations.
Draft policies and a comment form are posted on the county’s website at www.rdcountyvision.ca. Policies and comment forms are also available at local libraries.
Scheduled open houses include:
• April 19, Red Deer County Centre, 6 to 9 p.m.
• April 24, Spruceview, 2127 10 Ave. (Hwy 54), 6 to 9 p.m.
