Municipal Development Plan Project


The Summer Village of West Cove is currently part of a 3-component project along with 7 other municipalities.  One component is to adopt a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will be a mandatory requirement for all municipalities under the Modernized Municipal Government Act.  The Municipal Development Plan is a primary document that guides the future development and growth of the whole community. The MDP sets the vision on how to accommodate this growth responsibly and serves as an important decision-making tool for Council, administration and all stakeholders.  As a statutory plan required by the Alberta Municipal Government Act, the MDP provides direction for Council, administration, developers and builders, property-owners, residents and adjacent municipalities.

Flowering Rush Information Session

Flowering Rush is a prohibited, noxious weed that has been introduced into several Alberta water bodies.  It is an aquatic plant that grows as an emergent plant along shorelines of both lakes and rivers. Flowering Rush was brought to North America from Europe as a garden plant.  This variety will form dense stands which will interfere with recreational lake use.  Flowering Rush crowds out our native plants and has the potential to fill in an entire lake if left uncontrolled.

Flowering Rush Information and Training Sessions: 9-11 AM on July 7 and July 28 - Camp Koinonia/Lake Isle Lutheran Camp Pavillion: 6223 Twp Rd 534A.

These sessions are to teach volunteers and property owners to properly identify, remove and dispose of Flowering rush.  Please join us for a session and bring a friend!
