Guiding documents

Planning and research is critical to the efficient growth and development of our City. Here are many of the documents, plans, studies and reports that guide Council and administration in the decisions they make and understanding the impact of those decisions on the community and its future.

Alberta Municipal Government Act (MGA)

The Alberta Municipal Government Act is the Provincial legislation that empowers municipalities to govern the development of lands within their boundaries. The MGA outlines requirements for all statutory plans and processes related to planning in the city.


Sustainability Plan (AirdrieONE)

The AirdrieONE Plan (pdf) describes the community’s vision for a sustainable future and proposes goals, objectives, targets and strategies to achieve that vision. The plan provides objectives and strategies for developing on-the-ground actions, so that Airdrie can continue to thrive over the long term. Implementation of AirdrieOne occur through many of the City’s existing mechanisms, including budgets, plan development, regulations, policies and programs.
