Intermunicipal Development Plans Project

The County of St. Paul No. 19, in partnership with the towns of Elk Point and St. Paul and the Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay have engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. to prepare one new Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) and update two existing IDPs. The Province of Alberta is implementing new changes to the Municipal Government Act which now requires all municipalities that share a boundary with another municipality prepare a joint IDP by April 2020. These plans are intended to address future growth opportunities and other development-related matters of joint interest between the municipalities.

In addition to the development of the IDPs, ISL is also preparing a new Municipal Development Plan and updating the Land Use Bylaw for the Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay.

Community engagement will occur at major milestones. Plan Area landowners, residents and other stakeholders will have key roles in the development of the IDPs. Your participation and feedback is important to help inform and shape the creation of the land use policies, land use concepts and development regulations. There will be multiple opportunities for you to participate.

Project Timeline

Phase 1
The project team will obtain technical information from each municipality and prepare growth projections to assist with the project analysis. This will also involve undertaking research to identify opportunities and constraints to future development for each municipality.

Phase 2
The first round of community engagement begins. Using Phase 1 information and community feedback, the project team will prepare the initial drafts of the IDPs, MDP and LUB.

Phase 3
The initial drafts of the IDPs, MDP and LUB will be presented at community engagement events. The project team will review the comments provided and refine the initial drafts.

Phase 4
The final IDP, MDP and LUB documents will be delivered to the each municipality, then reviewed, and presented to each Council at public hearing for review and approval.

Where Are We Now

Update – Multi-Urban Intermunicipal Development Plans Project

In April 2018, we held interviews and open houses, and gathered input online on potential opportunities and constraints for the IDP study areas and future land use concept ideas. The Phase 1 Engagement Summary can be viewed here.

Have your say! The partnering municipalities are hosting public open houses for plan area landowners, residents and stakeholders in June to gather input to help refine and finalize the IDPs.
