A Public Hearing is scheduled for Thursday, November 8 at 9 am (Lacombe County Council Chambers). Please see the Notice of Public Hearing for further information. The Town of Bentley and Lacombe County have reviewed the Town of Bentley/Lacombe County Intermunicipal Development Plan, originally adopted in 2009. This plan will, at a very broad scale, guide future growth for both municipalities and provide a forum for intermunicipal discussion and collaboration as development occurs in and around the urban fringe of the Town of Bentley.
The majority of the proposed amendments have been made in order to clarify the document, the overall intent of the plan has not changed. A number of changes are proposed in response to Bill 21, the Modernized Municipal Government Act, to ensure the Plan is in accordance with the policy directions included in the Act.
A Public Open House was held on Thursday, September 13 at the Bentley Community Hall to inform the public of the proposed changes. Feedback from this meeting can be found in the survey results below.
