Municipal Development Plan Project

The Summer Village of West Cove Municipal Development Plan has been approved!  In 2017, work commenced to review and update the MDP for the Summer Village.  Work was primarily conducted in the summer months over the past few years to capture feedback from permanent and seasonal residents.  This included discussions on future development goals, parks, open space & recreation goals, mobility goals, municipal servicing & utility goals, environment management goals, collaboration goals and implementation & policies.  

Subsequent to Stakeholder Workshops (May 18, 2017), Online Survey (May 31 – July 4, 2017) and Public Open Houses (June 3 & 6, 2017, August 24 and September 24, 2020), it was felt that the MDP has captured the goals of the Summer Village moving forward and was approved at the November 26th, 2020 Council meeting.  A copy will be posted to the website for your perusal in the near future! 

We thank all those that participated in the process, it is appreciated!

Flowering Rush

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.
