Alberta Development Officers Week
Wheatland County Council has proclaimed October 26-30, 2020, to be Alberta Development Officers Week to recognize sound development and planning practices and the contribution made by Development Officers locally and throughout Alberta.
A Development Officer is a planning and development specialist with knowledge in current legislation, policy and bylaws, systems and technical requirements for physical development within communities in the Province of Alberta. A Development Officer enforces and administers land use regulations and policies on behalf of a municipality and is designated to the position of Development Authority by the municipality as defined by the Municipal Government Act.
The Alberta Development Officers Association, representing professional Development Officers in Alberta, endorses Alberta Development Officers Week to recognize sound development and planning practices and the contribution made by Development Officers to the quality of development within our communities and environment; and Alberta Development Officers Week helps publicly recognize the work of our municipal colleagues in planning and development for the improvement of Wheatland County
