The Planning and Development Department is responsible for overall land use planning and development activity in the Town of Vegreville. The primary goal of the Department is to build an increasingly sustainable community, with an enhanced quality of life.
Through community engagement and consultation, the Department seeks to understand the values of the community, and reflect those values through the implementation of development policies, programs, bylaws and standards.
The directive of the Department includes primary responsibilities for future growth, land use and zoning policy, development review, planning for new neighbourhoods, redeveloping existing neighbourhoods, affordable housing, and business licensing and bylaw enforcement. The Department works with community, business, Municipal neighbours, and regional partners to foster mutually supportive relationships and sustainable development throughout the Town and region.
