Lloydminster, AB/SK – Lloydminster City Council is considering the adoption of a new municipal development plan (MDP) known as Connection to our Future.

The current MDP was adopted in 2013. Since then, the City of Lloydminster has undergone changes in population, development, municipal boundary, and overall objectives, which requires the City to review its goals to ensure the current needs and aspirations of the community are upheld.

An MDP is a vision or blueprint for the next 20 years, guiding multiple plans and documents, subdivisions and developments. The MDP covers topics such as:

  • spaces for recreation, artistic activities, and community gatherings;
  • residential, commercial and industrial developments;
  • future land use and co-ordination of land uses;
  • economic development of the municipality;
  • provisions of transportation systems, municipal services and facilities;
  • governance considerations; and
  • density.

The draft of Connection to our Future is available online at This draft was presented during the Governance and Priorities Committee meeting on Monday, March 20, 2023. This presentation was for information purposes only, and no decision to adopt the plan was made.

Lloydminster’s MDP is utilized by many, including:

  • community members and the development community;
  • City Council and Administration;
  • the Subdivision and Development Authority;
  • the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board; and
  • neighbouring municipalities.

Information Session

The City of Lloydminster will host two come-and-go information sessions in Council Chambers at City Hall (4420 50 Avenue) to allow residents to discuss the draft municipal development plan. City Administration and Council members will be on-hand to discuss and receive feedback.

"We welcome the feedback from the community on this draft document," says Mayor Gerald Aalbers. "This is part of a collaborative process with internal and external stakeholders and community involvement. The received feedback has been a crucial element in creating this document, which will set the direction for the future of Lloydminster."
