Current Projects

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

Emerald Park Fire Hall

In late 2008, the RM of Edenwold began planning for a future RM-run fire hall. This fire hall would provide direct emergency service to Emerald Park, Great Plains Industrial Park, surrounding country residential subdivisions, and rural areas. It will also ensure timely and efficient emergency response while positioning the RM in a long-term and financially sustainable position.

The RM has been collecting money through development fees for a fire hall for over ten years. This reserve account has grown to over $1.05 million and is earmarked for protective services infrastructure. The total budget for the construction of the new fire hall is $1.8 million. The remaining $0.75 million will be paid for using the municipality’s reserve and general revenue accounts.

With growth in Emerald Park and the Great Plains Industrial Park, the new fire hall will be centrally-located to improve response times in emergency situations. The new fire hall is planned for 100 Hutchence Road, adjacent to the RM office. This location is close to Hwy. 1, Hwy. 362, and Grid 624, and will allow for easy access to Pilot Butte, White City, Kronau, and Balgonie.

Vista Springs

Vista Springs is 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 14 residential lots, in addition to common space and walking trails. As part of this process, the developer is also requesting 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 is hosting 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 will be an opportunity to learn about the proposed development and ask any questions you may have. Any input received at this engagement event will be considered in the final proposal to Council in 2022. Please join us to learn more about the project and have your voice heard.

Municipal District of Edenwold

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 RM's 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 Edenwold 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 important, 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. The results are being analysed now by AE - and a 'What we heard' Report will be posted soon, so check back often!

North-East Waterline Project

Led by local developers, there are plans in place to provide potable water to communities north and east of Hwy. 1, including Coppersands, Bridlewood, and Jorgenson & Bohach. Engineers are currently working on drawing up plans for the waterline, with construction expected to start in late 2021 or early 2022. Check back often for further updates!

Emerald Park Dog Park

The RM of Edenwold is excited to announce a new dog park for Emerald Park. This dog park (as yet unnamed) will be located beside the RM Office at 100 Hutchence Road. It will provide opportunities for you and your pet to exercise safely and socialise with other dog-lovers and canines.

The RM is currently working with SaskPower to finalize fence design and approvals. Any new updates will be posted on this website and on the RM's social media accounts.
