The formation of Flourish: Growing to 100K has provided an opportunity to reflect on what makes St. Albert great, as well as the questions we must consider as a growing city: What types of housing should St. Albert have to meet the needs of people at all stages of life? How can we attract more businesses so that fewer residents are commuting elsewhere for work? How should our parks and trails be enhanced? How might emerging transportation trends, such as self-driving vehicles, change how we move around?
Flourish: Growing to 100K builds on the foundation created by Cultivating our Future: St. Albert's Community Vision. More than 6,000 residents participated in this process from January 2014 to February 2015, sharing over 15,000 ideas that helped the Community Sustainability Committee create St. Albert’s Community Vision and Pillars of Sustainability. Flourish: Growing to 100K applies the Vision, along with new ideas that emerged through the public participation process, into the goals, objectives and policies of the MDP.
As the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) directs where and how growth should happen, it has been written to reflect the values and aspirations of our community.
