The lands surrounding Villeneuve Airport (ZVL) are prime for new commercial and industrial investment, with the potential to support regional economic growth, diversification, and new jobs.
The area benefits from tremendous road, rail, and air infrastructure as well as innovative businesses already onsite. The recently approved Villeneuve Airport Area Master Plan (VAAMP) showcases the opportunities to capitalize on existing infrastructure in a way that complements the airport and the rest of Sturgeon County.
The VAAMP focuses around four themes that research determined could be most appropriate based on existing infrastructure and programs within the county, regionally, and provincially.
The concepts provide an overall vision of the potential of the region, particularly in the areas of innovation, logistics, and new energy economies.
With the VAAMP in place, it is time to translate the vision into future-ready strategies as part of a formal Area Structure Plan (a statutory plan that sets specific development policy and creates certainty for new investors) and create the opportunities for the Future to Take Flight in Sturgeon County!
Engagement activities will take place to collect input from residents and stakeholders on the draft Villeneuve Airport Area – Area Structure Plan. Interested investors are also encouraged to contact us for more information on planning specifics and opportunities.
