Welcome to Foothills County

Considerations in the Design of Subdivision

Historic Preservation

One of the five important aspects of our rural character that were identified by residents during the development of the new MDP2010 is our wealth of historic and archaeological resources. The MDP2010 states:

"Preserving and studying our cultural heritage gives us a key piece of our rural character. The stories, treasures and cultural landscapes of people through the ages and of those who homesteaded here give us a sense of belonging. They are particularly valuable as new landowners with no history or background in farming move to the County of Foothills."

The County is currently undertaking an inventory of historical resources. For more information on this project see Planning and Projects Currently in the Works.
