The Canadian Institute of Planners lends a definition of land use planning: it is the scientific, aesthetic, and orderly disposition of land, resources, facilities and services. It secures the physical, economic and social efficiency, and health and well-being of urban and rural communities.
Through land use planning, we strive to resolve the many, and often conflicting, pressures on Bruderheim's land and resources.
The purpose of the strategic plan is to set overall goals for the community and to develop a plan to achieve them. As we step into the future, it is important to know what our priorities are.
Master Services Plan
The Master Services Plan assists Administration and Council in planning and budgeting infrastructure upgrades and expansion to achieve orderly and coordinated development.
