The County of Grande Prairie continues its series of engagement opportunities for the Northeast Clairmont Area Structure Plan (ASP) on Tuesday, November 3, with two public sessions.

Residents who live or own land within the Plan area and others interested in future development in this section of the Hamlet can attend in person or participate online. Participants can learn more about the Plan and share feedback to help shape the vision for the area.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-person attendance at the County's Council Chambers (10001-84 Avenue, Clairmont) is limited to 20 people at each session, with pre-registration required by November 2. Health and safety measures will be in effect.

Those wishing to attend are asked to register and select their preferred timeslot of 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.  at neclairmontasp.eventbrite.ca.

Anyone wishing to join online can contact Courtney Laurence at claurence@islengineering.com or 1-403-613-2900 by October 29 to receive information on joining virtually. 

"These sessions along with our earlier virtual engagement sessions and the survey that's underway make up the first round of public engagement for the Northeast Clairmont Area Structure Plan," said  Stuart Wraight,  Senior Planner "All feedback and questions from the public help us to draft a plan that meets the needs of our community to ensure healthy and sustainable growth."

Feedback from this phase of engagement will be considered as the ASP is developed. The public will be provided with an opportunity to provide input on the Plan in the coming months before a final draft is presented to County Council.

Survey Remains Open

There's still time to provide feedback about the plan area's future development through a survey available at www.countygp.ab.ca/NEClairmontASP until October 25.

Background

The ASP being developed for the area is located north of Highway 43, east of Clairmont Lake, south of Township Road 730, and to Clairmont's east boundary.

The ASP will guide future development of the over 3,300 acres, outlining future

land use and development plans, including roads and other infrastructure.

See attached map showing the area of the ASP.

The ASP ensures development aligns with the goals, objectives and policies of the County and are prepared in accordance with the Municipal Government Act, and the County's Municipal Development Plan.
