Connection To Our Future
Lloydminster Municipal Development Plan

In order for us to connect to our future, we must first envision it! Lloydminster is updating our vision through a new document: Connection To Our Future. This document will set our course toward ensuring we have a healthy, prosperous, and resilient future for ourselves and future generations. 

The Connection To Our Future document will be Lloydminster’s new Municipal Development Plan and more! It will guide our land use planning, and also our economic, social, cultural and ecological future. This is your opportunity to contribute to the development of our city! 

What is your vision for Lloydminster?

Project Update
Background

The MDP includes policies that govern land use planning within the City. The MDP update process includes multiple opportunities for members of the public to learn about the community planning process and to provide input on how you want your city to evolve over time.

The MDP is the main tool that City Council and Administration have to guide land use planning within the City. In the past decade, Lloydminster experienced significant change concurrent with various economic challenges within the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. As one of the fastest-growing communities in the region, discussions about the limited land inventory to support growth initiated back in 2011 when the current MDP Bylaw was being prepared.

In early 2022, with the annexation of 23.5 quarter sections of land along Lloydminster’s northern, western, and southern boundaries, Lloydminster is poised for considerable change and growth.

Recent development pressures, along with a growing focus on economic development suggest the 2013 MDP requires a significant review and revisions to capture Lloydminster’s current challenges and to develop a new community vision and philosophy for the foreseeable future.

Project Status

The project has just been initiated and the City and consultants, Green Space Alliance and POPULUS Community Planning Inc., are beginning the initial analysis and background research in collaboration with City staff.

In addition, a Public Engagement and Communication Plan (PECP) is being prepared to provide a strategy to gather input from residents about the topics and changes that they think are important to consider moving forward.
