Connecting Devon is the Town of Devon’s Municipal Development Plan. The Municipal Development Plan provides a Vision, Principles, Objectives, Goals and Policies to provide statutory direction to development and growth to 2045.
The Municipal Development Plan is a result of a parallel process of developing an Integrated Community Strategic Plan. The Municipal Development Plan’s close alignment with the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan ensures that land use decisions are rooted in Devon’s long term the sustainability goals.
The Town of Devon recognizes its role in demonstrating leadership in growing and developing land in a responsible manner. The Town’s commitment to sustainability is demonstrated in this Municipal Development Plan through policies that address contiguous and compact development, the integration of infrastructure with land use, alternative and renewable energy, the conservation of natural area, and ensuring citizens have access to natural areas and community services.
The Municipal Development Plan is also reflects the regional framework for growth as established in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan. As a member municipality, Devon has the responsibility of implementing the policies of its growth plan primarily through statutory planning documents including the Municipal Development Plan and subsequent Area Structure Plans. This Municipal Development Plan recognizes Devon’s role in the Metropolitan Structure as a sub-regional and urban centre, providing for land use policies to meet population and employment projections established by the Growth Plan, and density targets for built-up and greenfield areas.
Connecting Devon recognizes its growth and evolution through its principles that focus on providing physical and social connections to places, spaces and each other, while rooted in the desire to demonstrate sustainability leadership in alternative and renewal energy.
The Town of Devon Municipal Development Plan was adopted August 14, 2017.
