Calgary's Municipal Development Plan and its accompanying maps were adopted by City Council in 2009. It contains policies that will shape how Calgary grows and develops over the next 30 to 60 years, and is built on seven interrelated goals. Calgary is expected to grow by another 1.3 million people over that time which makes it important that we plan for our future.
The Municipal Development Plan aims to build a city where people can choose from a variety of housing types in numerous unique communities. It works together with the Calgary Transportation Plan to provide multiple transportation options so all Calgarians -- whether travelling by car, bike transit or foot -- are able to travel safely and conveniently to meet their daily needs.
The Municipal Development Plan was built on seven interrelated goals. These goals are key to managing the way the city grows and changes.
Founded on the principles of sustainable development and guided by a philosophy of fiscal responsibility and managed growth, these goals will stimulate growth and change across the city as a whole over the next 60 years.
