Telephone Survey Notice - MDP and LUB Review

The following is a letter from Mayor Greg Pasychny regarding an upcoming telephone survey in early September. For more details on the Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw Review, and the upcoming survey, please visit the MDP Review Page on our website! Business owners are also invited to fill out the online Economic Based Survey as part of the consultation process,

Summer 2014

The Town of Edson is updating our Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and Land Use Bylaw (LUB). The new MDP will provide guidance for the growth and development of Edson over the next 20 years. The LUB is a set of rules and regulations for development that helps to implement this 20 year vision.

The MDP can address anything that the Town is responsible for, including:

  • transportation systems
  • subdivision and planning controls
  • municipal utility infrastructure systems
  • recreational services (parks, trails)
  • physical, social, and economic development
  • downtown planning
  • types and locations of various land uses (residential, industrial, commercial)

The Town is in the initial stages of amending the MDP and LUB and together with our consultant, Matrix Planning, we will be relying on input from the community to revise these important documents.

Your first opportunity to provide your input is during a telephone survey which will start in early September. The Praxis Group has been hired to conduct the telephone survey. Callers will be asking your opinion on a number of issues and we hope that you will take the time to respond to ensure that your voice is heard. Not all property owners will be reached during this survey, as it is completed through a random selection process. Should you not be reached by the telephone survey, there will be additional opportunities to provide your comments in the near future.

Stay connected on the Town of Edson website to obtain information on our upcoming public workshops in the fall and winter (details to come) at http://www.edson.ca/departments/engineering-planning/mdp.

Sincerely,

Greg Pasychny
