Municipal Planning Commission (MPC)

The Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) is a committee established by Council bylaw that makes decisions on Planning & Development applications in Saddle Hills County. Five members of Council sit on the board and are appointed yearly at the Council Organizational Meeting.

What does a Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) do?

The MPC is responsible for making decisions on Development Permit Applications concerning proposed developments in Saddle Hills County. Development Permit and Subdivision Applications could be reviewed by the MPC for a number of reasons:

  • The application concerns development(s) that would be considered as 'Discretionary Use' within Saddle Hills County's Land Use Bylaw
  • The application proposes a variance difference of up to 25% from the specifications contained within the Land Use Bylaw
  • The Development Officer has referred the application to the MPC for a decision.

The Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) can also be referred to as the Development Authority during the appeals process.

Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) Meetings

The MPC meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 8:30 a.m., prior to the Regular Council Meeting. Although MPC meetings can be called outside of the regular meeting schedule, if required.

You can view copies of current and prior MPC Meeting Agendas and Minutes online and meeting dates and times are advertised in advance, both online and in the Central Peace Signal.
