Villeneuve Airport Area Master Plan (VAAMP)

The lands surrounding Villeneuve Airport (ZVL) are prime for commercial and industrial investment. There is huge potential to support regional economic growth, diversification, and new jobs.

The area is blessed with tremendous:

  • road, rail, and air infrastructure
  • innovative businesses
  • and pending upgrades to local broadband and municipal water services.

Read the VAAMP Executive Summary

The VAAMP is focused on the lands surrounding the Villeneuve Airport. It will not specifically address the airport itself, which has an existing strategic plan, and will not encompass the hamlet of Villeneuve nor restrict ongoing agricultural or resource extraction practices in the area.

The final VAAMP includes:

  • a technical analysis
  • identification of current and future infrastructure needs
  • economic forecasts
  • regulatory and regional requirements
  • and more

The VAAMP will guide development in the Villeneuve Airport area and support the attraction of investment in sectors that connect regional goods and services with global markets.
