Information
Request for Decision Summary
This Request for Decision provides information for holding a public hearing for proposed Bylaw C-1102-19 Municipal Development Plan Amendment – Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board Updates for Council's consideration for changes that will update the City’s Bylaw C-960-16 Municipal Development Plan Your Bright Future 2010 - 2020 (MDP), to bring it into conformance with the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan (the Growth Plan).

Administration supports this Bylaw.

Proposed Motion
That those in attendance be thanked for their input.
Background/Analysis
The Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (the Board) adopted the Growth Plan in October 2017, and the City of Spruce Grove as a member municipality of the Board was required to review our MDP for inconsistencies with the Growth Plan and then undertake any amendments required to bring it into compliance.

On October 9, 2018, Council approved a Regional Context Statement that outlined how the City's MDP conforms with or diverges from the spirit and intent of the Growth Plan.  This resolution also directed administration to prepare MDP amendments required to bring it into conformity.   Bylaw C-1102-19 proposes those changes required to bring the MDP in conformance with the Growth Plan, and also proposes some minor maintenance-type changes that take advantage of this update opportunity. 

For additional background information, please consult the Request for Decision for this Bylaw's second reading that is included within the May 25, 2020 Council agenda package.
Options/Alternatives
Bylaw C-1102-19 is being presented for Council's consideration of second reading later on this same Council agenda.  Should Council feel they need further information to make a decision they may choose to adjourn the public hearing for continuance at a later date. If Council chooses this option, second reading of this bylaw will be re-scheduled to a later date.
Consultation/Engagement
This public hearing was advertised in the May 8, 2020, and the May 15, 2020, editions of the Spruce Grove Examiner in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Government Act.  

Bylaw C-1102-19 is brought forward pursuant to Council's previously discussed Regional Context Statement review that was approved October 9, 2018, and forwarded to the Board on October 10, 2018. 
Implementation/Communication
Council's approval of this MDP Amendment will fulfill a legislated requirement to update the City’s development policy framework to be consistent with the Growth Plan by October 2020.
Impacts
Adoption of Bylaw C-1102-19 will bring the City into compliance with the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan, and require the City to plan and pursue development that supports implementing the growth directions of a Growth Plan's Metropolitan Area policy tier.  The City will review regulations and other policies for any required changes to conform with the amended MDP policy.
