Current Projects

Something new or exciting is always going on in the RM of Edenwold. Some notable proposed developments and projects include:

ATV & Snowmobile Bylaw

In response to community concerns and observations made by the RM's Community Safety Officer (CSO), the RM is reviewing and updating the municipality's ATV and Snowmobile Bylaws. To read the RM's existing ATV and Snowmobile Bylaws, please click here (2020-10) and here (2020-16).

Before the new bylaw is adopted, the RM is gathering public feedback and learning about how ATVs and Snowmobiles are currently used in the community. Community engagement started in late December and continued until early January. During this time, residents and other interested parties could review the draft bylaw and provide comments to RM staff. Public comments largely concerned bylaw implementation, including concerns surrounding a new mandatory ATV registration system.

As a result of these comments, in addition to Council direction, RM staff have revised the draft bylaw and are now entering a second round of public engagement. To download a copy of the revised ATV and Snowmobile bylaw, please click here.

Notable changes between the old and new bylaw include:

  • Combining two bylaws into a single comprehensive bylaw;
  • Working with Pilot Butte to adopt their registration system for ATVs that use public roads in Emerald Park and other subdivisions Note: Snowmobiles are already required to be registered under The Snowmobile Act;
  • Once adopted, all ATVs that travel on public roads in Emerald Park and other subdivisions (whether the ATV is stored in the RM or in another municipality) would need to be registered and display a unique licence plate;
  • Registration would be managed by the Town of Pilot Butte and enforced by the RM;
  • ATV licence plates will allow the RM's CSOs to track ATVs that break municipal laws and provide CSOs opportunities for follow-up (both educational and enforceable);
  • ATVs that are being used for work-related purposes, or that are being used to clear snow, would be exempt from having to register; and
  • Existing regulations concerning travel (requiring that vehicles travel by the most direct point between the location of storage and the location of use) would remain as before.

If you have any comments or questions about the draft ATV Bylaw, please contact Ross Zimmermann, Planner, by email at rossz@edenwold-sk.ca Please provide your comments on the new revised ATV and Snowmobile Bylaw before March 3rd, 2023.

Vista Springs

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.

Emerald Park Sector Plan

With the completion of the Regina bypass and anticipated residential growth in the region, there are many opportunities for expansion in Emerald Park. The relationship between residential, recreational, community service, commercial, and industrial developments is essential, and it is critical that new development is compatible with the existing community.

Associated Engineering (AE) is working with the RM of Edenwold (RM) to prepare a sector plan for Emerald Park that will offer guidance for the continued development of this area. Sector plans are long-range plans that coordinate all the elements that
must be considered to ensure the proper functioning of an area.

The RM and AE shared a survey with the public between October 1st and October 31st. This survey was open to residents and business owners in Emerald Park and employees working in Emerald Park.

Building on survey findings, the RM and AE hosted a series of open houses - on April 13th and 14th, from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm. These events offered community members and stakeholders an opportunity to review key components of the sector plan and provide additional input before the plan is brought forward to Council for adoption. The RM and Associated Engineering designed a series of display boards for public viewing before the presentation, and Associated Engineering gave a formal presentation to attendees at 7:00 pm. The project team answered questions and collected feedback to inform future revisions.

The RM will be collecting comments on the Draft Sector Plan until May 2nd, 2022. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Ross Zimmermann, Planner, at (306) 347-2975 or by email at rossz@edenwold-sk.ca

After the open houses, AE and the RM will review the sector plan and make changes as appropriate. Following this update, AE will present the Emerald Park Sector Plan to Council for adoption. Once adopted, the plan will apply to all properties and development within the plan area.

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 Ross Zimmermann, Planner, at (306) 347-2975 or by email at rossz@edenwold-sk.ca
