The Highway 2 Corridor between Edmonton and Calgary has been referred to as one of the fastest growing economic regions in the country. This growth creates many business opportunities. To ensure that the County is ready to take advantage of these opportunities, Council directed the preparation of the Highway 2 Corridor Economic Development Study to identify areas along the corridor that could be considered for industrial or commercial use. Completed in September 2003, the Study directs future development to the highway interchanges at Blackfalds, west of Lacombe and at Morningside. New development standards were also adopted to promote high quality, visually attractive developments. These standards are set out in the Highways 2/2A Corridor Overlay District of the County�s Land Use Bylaw.
