The Country Residential Area is located south and east of the Urban Service Area, within the Rural Service Area of Strathcona County. The area encompasses approximately 8,000ha (20,000 ac) of land.
Country residential development is characterized by residences built on large acreages. The area was designed to provide a balance between opportunities for country residential living while respecting natural and rural landscapes.
The intent of the Country Residential Area Concept Plan is to provide clear, user friendly guidance to landowners who may wish to subdivide or develop their properties in the future while ensuring that the County’s infrastructure is managed efficiently.
