Something new or exciting is always going on in the RM of Edenwold. For a list of all current and completed projects, please visit Your Edenwold, the RM's public engagement platform.
Some notable proposed developments, projects, and completed projects include:
Civic Address Registry
The RM of Edenwold is working with the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency to assign civic addresses to all properties in the RM. These addresses will be registered on the Civic Address Registry (CAR) system and made available to 911-First Responders during emergencies.
The RM will be systematically moved across the municipality, ensuring all properties have a civic address. Depending on the road and location, your address may be a Township or Range Road address (for example: 12345 Range Road 2182) or a Common Road address (for example: 12 Green Street). By providing the 911 operator with your address, they will be able to dispatch first responders to quickly and efficiently locate your property and respond to your emergency.
Once all civic addresses have been assigned using the CAR system, the municipality will implement an addressing signage program. This program will give you a recognizable and standardized sign that first responders and other drivers can use while travelling on the road.
To support the roll-out of the signage program, the RM adopted a Bylaw 2022-52 Civic Addressing Bylaw. To review the bylaw, please click here. This bylaw outlines all requirements for the civic addressing registry and address signage.
If you are curious about your civic address, please call 306-771-2522.
UPDATE: The first batch of signs started going up in the fall of 2023! 98 signs will be installed in the rural areas of Divisions 1 & 2 as we head into the spring of 2024.
Comprehensive Development Proposal
Comprehensive Development Proposals (CDPs) are documents developers must submit to the Municipality when undertaking large development projects. CDPs are required by the Zoning Bylaw for any application to rezone, subdivide, re-subdivide, or re-develop 3 or more lots/sites, or for smaller areas if deemed appropriate and necessary. Some CDPs that have been approved by the RM include:
- New Horizon Business Park Approved by Council on June 27, 2023
- Emerald Park Burger King - Approved by Council on March 7th, 2023
- Greensview Estates - Approved by Council on March 7th, 2023
If you have any questions about these or other CDPs, please contact the RM at (306) 771-2522 or by email at email@example.com
Vista Springs is phase 2 of a new residential community developed by BMA Ventures planned for L.S.D. 16, Section 12-17-18-W2 (south of Meadow Ridge Estates). The project proposes a residential condominium development of 11 residential lot, common space, and walking trails. As part of this process, the developer also requests that the land be rezoned to CR3-C — Country Residential 3 Contract Zone to accommodate the project's unique site sizes.
In collaboration with the developer, the RM of Edenwold hosted a public open house on Thursday, December 2nd, 2021, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the RM Office, 100 Hutchence Road, Emerald Park. This open house allowed neighbours to learn about the proposed development and ask questions. Any input received at this engagement event will be considered in the final proposal to Council in 2022.

Municipal District of Prairieview
The RM of Edenwold and Village of Edenwold are currently going through the process of creating the province's first Municipal District. A Municipal District (MD) is a type of municipality (like Rural Municipality, Village, Town, or City) created when two or more municipalities choose to come together, pool their resources, and create an entirely new entity. Unlike RMs or Villages/Towns/Cities which are solely considered rural or urban, a Municipal District is regarded as both! By being considered both urban and rural in the province's eyes, a Municipal District benefits by having access to services and programs that would be otherwise restricted.
While mentioned in provincial law, there are currently no Municipal Districts in Saskatchewan - thus, the MD of Prairieview would be the first of its kind in the province! It will create net efficiencies within the area; it will not compromise the service provided to residents and businesses, but instead, create a more effective service flow.
North-East Waterline Project
Led by local developers, there are plans to provide potable water to the community of Coppersands. There are also opportunities for other communities north and east of Hwy. 1 like Bridlewood and Jorgenson & Bohach to connect to the waterline. Engineers are drawing up plans for the waterline, with construction expected to start in 2022. Check back often for further updates!
If you live North or East of Hwy. 1 and would like to learn more about the waterline and how it might support your community, please contact the RM office at (306) 771-2522 or by email at email@example.com
