The Community and Development Services department is comprised of several diverse divisions that provide a wide range of both hard and soft services to Wheatland and the region as a whole. Business divisions within the department include subdivision and redesignation, development services, safety codes, fire and emergency services, economic development, tourism, community services (parks and recreation), and protective services. Have a look at the 2019-2021 Department Plan.
The team provides long-term planning and permitting to ensure projects and developments adhere to our statutory plans, and maintain an appropriate service delivery standard.
The department also provides economic development services. These services include business support and engagement to aid in retaining or expanding their existing operations in the County. This division also promotes Wheatland to attract new investments and visitation in collaboration with multiple stakeholders.
