The community built a vision through the Bremner Growth Management Strategy, and through the Bremner Area Project we have created a detailed plan for urban growth that continues to the north and to the east of present Sherwood Park.

Where we're growing

Strathcona County’s population is growing and we need to plan to ensure efficient, smart and innovative growth. Bremner will be a continuous expansion of Sherwood Park that reflects principles of smart growth. The Local Employment Area located across from Bremner, on the south side of highway 16 (see below map), is also being planned for as part of the Bremner Area Project.

Sherwood Park has been building-out over the past 65 years and has evolved from a single neighbourhood in the 1950's to what it is today. Decisions were not made day one, but over time based on the needs of the community as we grew. Similarly, it could take half a century for Bremner and the Local Employment Area (LEA) to reach full build-out, with future infrastructure and development requiring consideration and approval by future Strathcona County Councils.

Professional services firm, Stantec, was retained to work with the County on the project.
