The Town of Okotoks and Foothills County are looking for feedback on a land-use plan.

They've launched a survey on Joint Planning Area 3, a 5,252-hectare stretch of land east of Okotoks spanning from the north end of town down to Aldersyde.

Most of the land lies within Foothills County, with 642 hectares lying within the boundary of Okotoks.

Because the land falls within the boundaries of two municipalities, the town and county are required, as per the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board, to carry out a Joint Planning Agreement Context Study.

It's being done to help coordinate land use and services between the town and county on the land, which is "envisioned as a key future growth area," according to the Joint Planning Area 3 Vision Statement.

An open house was held on Nov. 2, and the materials provided to attendants are available to view online.

The survey asks participants their thoughts on the Joint Planning Area 3 Vision Statement as well as the nine guiding principles and provides spaces for typed responses for all questions as well as general concerns. 

It's available until December 1.
