Calgary Metropolitan Plan (CMP) update - December 2012
The Calgary Regional Partnership and its member municipalities adopted amendments to the Calgary Metropolitan Plan in June 2012 designed to ensure the CMP remains relevant to its members, and respond to provincial requirements. The amended CMP was submitted to the Government of Alberta for further consideration in July of 2012. It is anticipated the Province will approve the CMP as a sub-regional plan under the Alberta Land Stewardship Act and Land-use Framework in early 2013. For more information, please see the Calgary Regional Partnership website.
A new plan for the Calgary Region
On June 19, 2009 the Calgary Regional Partnership ratified a new regional land use plan, called the Calgary Metropolitan Plan which provides a blueprint for sustainable growth over the next 60 to 70 years as our region moves from 1.2 million people today to over 2.8 million.
The City of Calgary has collaborated with the Calgary Regional Partnership and its member municipalities and the Tsuu T'ina Nation to develop this plan and address growth in the region. It proactively addresses regional planning issues, growth management, servicing and sustainability and balances the need to protect our regional landscape, with the growth of our developed areas and the need for regional infrastructure and services (such as transit and water).
This is the story of the New Plan for the Calgary Region how it was developed, and why it will position our region for future success and sustainability.
