The MDP is a long-range strategic document intended to guide the growth and development of a municipality into the future.

It identifies the vision, principles, goals and objectives that a municipality has set for itself on a long-range timeline.  Typical MDPs reach approximately 20 years into the future, and may have goals and objectives that are achievable over a 1 to 5 year period, 6 to 10 years, and all or more years.
