A public hearing to adopt the Milton Morningside Area Structure Plan will be held on November 8, 2018, at 9:15am. Council gave First Reading to Bylaw 1280/18 on October 11th to adopt the draft Milton Morningside Area Structure Plan (ASP). The draft ASP will replace the existing Milton Morningside ASP which was adopted in 2008. The County held a public meeting in May 2018 to find out if the 2008 plan still reflected the community's vision for growth in the area. Based on the feedback from that meeting, a new land use concept plan was developed which was brought back to the public on September 10, 2018 to review. The community provided overwhelming support for the draft plan and policies. The County is now holding a Public Hearing to ensure that the draft ASP provides for your vision for the development of this area of Lacombe County prior to final adoption of the Bylaw.
The main changes include a significant reduction in the land identified for multi-lot residential development, the inclusion of the Hamlet of Morningside and the inclusion of lands located between the QEII Highway, Highway 604 and Highway 2A for commercial and recreational development in the northwest of the plan area. Please see the draft plan for more details.
Anyone wishing to comment on the proposed draft plan will have an opportunity to do so at a public hearing. If you are unable to attend the hearing, written submissions can be made to the
County. You will, however, need to ensure that your comments are received by the County prior to the date of the hearing. Everyone is welcome to attend. For further information, please see the Public Open House advertisement or contact:
