The Rural Municipality of Montrose No. 315 is located next to the shores of the South Saskatchewan River. The RM is proud of its rural character and approaches the future with a vision for growth that is harmonious with the natural agricultural environment and is sustainable for future generations. Although traditional agricultural activity remains the primary land usage within the RM there has been an increase in interest for intensive agricultural and AR developments within the RM that are in accord with this vision.
Primary access to the RM is provided by Highways 45 and 7 as well as by O’Malley Road. The RM currently maintains approximately 350 kilometres. (218 miles) of gravel roads.
The land within the municipal boundary is relatively flat with some rolling hills and with a river valley on the east and south perimeters. There are various types of soils ranging from heavy clay to sandy with an abundant supply of gravel deposits. A mixture of cleared and bush topography is evident within the municipality with diverse uses for dry land and irrigated farming as well as for pastures and hay land necessary for animal production.
