Planning & Development
2103 was set as the year to review Marwayne’s 2008-09 Award Winning Sustainability Plan, a plan developed by Village Council, the Marwayne Agricultural Society, and concerned citizens.
 
This plan captured the vision, goals and strategies of everyone who attended for the future of Marwayne. It formed the basis of all other documents including Marwayne’s:
  • Municipal Development Plan
  • Land Use Bylaw
  • Community Needs Assessment & Facility Development Strategy
  • Agricultural Society Umbrella Governance Strategic Plan
 
The amount of planning and work that has occurred since 2008 is astounding. These planning documents captured the needs and desires of the greater community. They then provided focus to Council, the Ag Society, and all community groups allowing them to move forward in a goal-oriented, responsible manner.

  • maintained the position of the Community Development Officer
