What's this about?
The City of Medicine Hat is undertaking a comprehensive update to its guiding vision, the Municipal Development Plan. This initiative, myMH, will result in a new 30-year citywide plan to be adopted in 2019, putting in place visionary policies to help make Medicine Hat stronger, greener, more vibrant and more connected.
What stage is the project at?
It is important to build ongoing public consensus to ensure that the plan reflects concerns and aspirations of community members. So, the myMH team has been listening to and consulting with the Medicine Hat public in various ways. Engagement opportunities have included:
- Sessions with advisory boards
- Sessions with stakeholder groups
- 2017 fall trade show public event
- Kitchen table conversations (community-lead)
- My Big Picture photo contest
- Public briefing for Municipal Planning Commission
- 2018 Esplanade public event
- Launch of public survey
- 2018 Cultural Centre event

Public survey is now closed. Thank you to all survey participants, and to those who took the time to submit ideas by organizing a "kitchen table conversation".
Next, the team will consolidate and analyze the input from the public and stakeholders, to date. They will begin to formulate more focused direction for the many topics that we, like all cities, should pay attention to.
