IDP Public Hearing

Implementation of an Intermunicipal Development Plan

Lac Ste. Anne County and Parkland County are currently working to implement a new Intermunicipal Development Plan. This plan is aimed at guiding future growth for both municipalities, and provides a forum for intermunicipal dialogue and collaboration as development occurs in and around their shared border. The plan boundary includes lands in both Parkland County and Lac Ste. Anne County as indicated in the image above. Please refer to the maps below for more detailed views of the IDP maps in PDF format.
