 Multi-Urban 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.

Village of Elk Point Formed, 1938
In the words of J.C. Jensen "We have functioned barely a year and as the first Council we feel at this date, that justifiable pride can be taken in the solvency of the village finances, and in the local improvements that have been carried out. We do not claim infallibility but we have sincerely tried to provide the greatest good for the greatest number. We feel a pride in our village. We hope that it may grow more beautiful, become ever more conscious of the civic pride and truly be a community of which the younger growing generation can always look back to as a sphere of pleasant memories. Our aim is to foster the feeling beyond our confines, that we need them as well as their need of us."
