From the Community Vision Section of the Namaka Area Structure Plan (2016):

Namaka is a small, quiet and closely-knit community, with convenient access to the amenities of Strathmore. Residents value their rural lifestyles and open space views where children can safely ride their bikes and play outside. In the future, Namaka will grow gradually, accommodating some new residents while maintaining its rural character and charm, with complementary lot sizes and a continued feeling of shared open space. The views to the prairie and sensitive environmental features will be protected, and the community will be able to support additional recreational opportunities. This community vision aligns with the principles of sustainability contained within Wheatland County’s Municipal Development Plan and the Alberta Government’s South Saskatchewan Regional Plan.
