Why was Beaumont’s MDP not approved?

While 18 municipalities voted to support Beaumont’s MDP, six communities, including Edmonton, did not. Although we had support from a majority of communities in the region, we did not have the population numbers. (A successful vote at the CRB requires approval of 2/3 of the communities and 2/3 of the population, so Edmonton always holds the power of veto.)

 The new MDP took over two years to develop and represents hundreds of hours of residents’ and staff time spent preparing the document
