Planning Framework

The Government of Alberta Municipal Government Act (MGA) provides the basis for statutory and non-statutory plans in the province. A Municipal Development Plan (MDP), an Area Structure Plan (ASP), and a Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) are all statutory plans under the MGA. These plans provide planning direction at a high level and increase in detail progressively to guide growth and development.

ASP Boundary

The ASP boundary was determined by the Town of Okotoks and is illustrated in the Town’s Municipal Development Plan, approved in December 2020.
