Planning focuses on:

  1. the development, implementation and delivery of long-range planning documents
  2. providing services relating to the subdivision and land use designation of land (zoning) and bringing forward updates to planning documents, including the Municipal Development Plan, Area Structure Plans and the Land Use Bylaw.

Land use plansThese are the long range plans that identify the overarching goals and policies for the development of land. These include the Municipal Sustainability Plan, Intermunicipal Development Plan, Municipal Development Plan, Area Structure Plans, Area Redevelopment Plans, Outline Plans and Land Use Bylaw.

SubdivisionsWithin the City boundaries, the process of dividing a single parcel of land into two or more parcels, or the amendment of a parcel boundary through lot line adjustments requires endorsement by the City of Lacombe prior to registering the changes/parcels at Land Titles Office.

Open Houses:  An Open House gives residents and property owners the opportunity to learn about a proposed development and to provide their feedback on the project.  Click on the link to learn more about when an Open House is hosted and how to host an Open House.

How to Create an Outline Plan: An Outline Plan is a document that provides a detailed framework for the development proposed for a specific property. The Outline Plan is traditionally prepared by the developer and provides details on topics ranging from land use to road networks. Click on the link to learn more about creating an Outline Plan.
