The primary goal of the City of Medicine Hat planners is to build an increasingly sustainable community over time, with an enhanced quality of life, consistent with the vision and core strategies of the City’s Municipal Development Plan.
Through community engagement and consultation, we seek to understand the values of the community, and reflect those values through the implementation of development policies, programs, bylaws and standards.
