What's this about?
The City of Medicine Hat is undertaking a comprehensive update to its guiding vision, the Municipal Development Plan. This initiative, myMH, will result in a new 30-year citywide plan to be adopted in 2019, putting in place visionary policies to help make Medicine Hat stronger, greener, more vibrant and more connected.
What stage is the project at?
It is important to build ongoing public consensus to ensure that the plan reflects concerns and aspirations of community members. So, the myMH team has been listening to and consulting with the Medicine Hat public in various ways. Engagement opportunities have included:
- Sessions with advisory boards
- Sessions with stakeholder groups
- 2017 fall trade show public event
- Kitchen table conversations (community-lead)
- My Big Picture photo contest
- Public briefing for Municipal Planning Commission
- 2018 Esplanade public event
- Launch of public survey
- 2018 Cultural Centre event
(Survey closes July 31, 2018)
The first phase of public engagement is coming to a close. Please contribute your thoughts about the preliminary direction of the myMH Plan by participating in the survey.
For background info, view open house displays (PDF).
Next, the team will consolidate and analyze the input from the public and stakeholders, to date. They will begin to formulate more focused direction for the many topics that we, like all cities, should pay attention to.
Live today. Imagine tomorrow.

It's a self-organized meeting with a small group of people interested in a community topic - in this case, ideas relevant to the long-range future of our city.
Below is a simple step-by-step guide for you to follow to create your own event, then how to send in your results so your group can contribute their ideas to the myMH Plan. Submissions must be made by July 31, 2018. Get started today!
