What's the Big Idea?

The below information was taken from the newly launched website for "What's the Big Idea?" initiative. For more info please check out the site:

The Plan:
The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is an exciting place to be. Located in northern Alberta, this economic engine is one of the fastest growing regions in Canada and has a diverse population of more than 104,000. We are fortunate to have abundant natural resources, a rich heritage and economic opportunities. However our success and rapid expansion present challenges such as infrastructure and adequate housing that need the big, imaginative ideas to address them.

A new Municipal Development Plan for Wood Buffalo will provide a coordinated approach for regional growth over the next two decades. The plan will encourage neighbourhood development, and investment and businesses growth while respecting our natural environment.

In short, our Municipal Development Plan will show how we can make Wood Buffalo a great place to live – a place we’re proud to call home.

Be on the look out for our BIG IDEA CREW in their signature grey and orange jackets. They will be asking for your Big Ideas so don't be shy and say hi!
