Red Deer's Vision for 2050

Red Deer 2050

The vision statement provides a clear, concise, and inspiring long-term aspirational summary. The statement was developed with the community, for the community’s development and growth. The vision serves as the collective voice of Red Deerians, shaping the trajectory of our city towards the year 2050 and beyond. It serves as a testament to the vibrant tapestry of ideas, aspirations, and concerns woven together through community engagement.

Red Deer’s vision for 2050: Red Deer is vibrant and visionary, grounded in connection and growing in diversity.

The Guiding Stars for Red Deer are intended to inspire us, to create focus and intention on where Red Deer strives to be in 2050. Our community is encouraged to use these guiding stars to navigate our future together.

In 2050 Red Deer will be: Connected. Diverse. Vibrant.

The new vision will be a foundational document in supporting the development of The City’s new Official City Plan. The Official City Plan (OCP) guides and directs future growth and development for Red Deer, ensuring orderly, economical, and beneficial development while balancing the environmental, social, and economic needs and desires of the community.
