Colchester Growth Management Strategy
“Your Council wants to make the most informed decisions we can about how, where and when to grow in Strathcona County, and to do this we need all the facts. There are economic, social, agricultural, environmental and political impacts. We want comprehensive and complete information to make the best decisions possible.” – Roxanne Carr, Mayor
Sherwood Park is the first urban community in Strathcona County. While it may seem like there is plenty of room for individuals and families looking to make a home in Sherwood Park, the reality is we are running out of space for new urban neighbourhoods. We need to ensure there is a place for people looking to call the County home in the next 10, 20, even 50 years. The time to plan for growth is now.
Two areas in the County, Bremner and Colchester, have been identified as potential sites for our next urban community. In September 2014 the Bremner Growth Management Strategy was accepted by Strathcona County Council as information. Although the document is complete, it was not endorsed by Council as Council requires more information before making a decision about where to grow.
Council has now directed Administration to commence a growth management strategy for the Colchester area.
