Who is McElhanney?

The City of Camrose would like to welcome McElhanney as the new consultants on the Municipal Development Plan project. McElhanney has previously worked with several similar sized municipalities in Alberta to update their MDP and other long-range plans. We look forward to connecting Camrosians with our new project team.

*Biography below is provided by McElhanney

For over 111 years, McElhanney has been serving communities just like the City of Camrose. We were founded in Vancouver, and, while we have grown to 30 offices and 1,200 employees across Western Canada (see Figure 1) our focus has always been at the community level – providing services that improve the cities and towns in which we live and work. We start with the people and build a solution around them, whether it’s planning, survey, mapping, environmental, landscape architecture, or one of our many other in-house services; our approach is never to impose an outside, one-size-fits-all solution.

For the last 50 years, McElhanney’s foundational survey and engineering offerings have evolved to include advanced planning services such as land use and development approvals, community planning and policy, public and stakeholder engagement, recreation, tourism, community sustainability, and urban design. Our talented and diverse staff consists of professional community planners, designers, engagement specialists, engineers, graphic designers, mappers, and support staff who regularly collaborate to review, update, and/or develop MDPs, Land Use Bylaws (LUB), as well as Area Structure Plans (ASP). Our project team has delivered MDP’s for similar municipalities that needed to align with the MGA and with community priorities.

Figure 1: It's more than a project, it's our hometown. While we have worked across Canada and around the world, our focus is on delivering.

Figure 2: Our McElhanney planning team has worked on community plans including several MDPs and LUBs across Alberta, as shown on the map.

McElhanney’s Project Team

McElhanney’s team of professionals is ready and eager to assist the city with delivering the new MDP. We have undertaken MDP review projects for other communities across Alberta (see Figure 2), and therefore understand what it takes to deliver an efficient and comprehensive review.

Meet McElhanney’s core team of professionals that will be assisting the city with the MDP review project.
