Future Vision of Medicine Hat

The City of Medicine Hat is undertaking a comprehensive update to its guiding vision, the Municipal Development Plan. This initiative, myMH, will result in a new 30-year citywide plan to be adopted in 2019, putting in place strong and visionary policies to help create a more prosperous, livable and sustainable city.

Crafting a new vision for our diverse city is a complex task. Planning & Development Services is creating the plan, which involves conducting research, incorporating specialized expertise from various disciplines, and crafting policy proposals.

It is essential to build ongoing public consensus to ensure that the plan reflects concerns and aspirations of community members. To help achieve these objectives, the myMH team will be posting opportunities for the community to share thoughts and concepts.

The Plan will be shared with the public in early 2020, for input and comments.
