Draft IDP with Summer Villages

An Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) is a statutory planning document prepared with two (or more) municipalities that share a common border. An IDP ensures future development and land use policy are coordinated between municipalities. The County of Wetaskiwin No. 10 and the Summer Villages that border the County have agreed to jointly engage in an IDP, as per the Municipal Government Act

An IDP is a high-level statutory land use plan prepared by two or more neighbouring municipalities for areas of mutual interest. The purpose of this IDP is to: 

  • Ensure that future development, land use policies, and long-term growth within the Pigeon Lake watershed is coordinated between the municipalities 
  • Develop and implement consistent land management goals 
  • Reduce the possibility of future land use conflicts 
  • Provide a clear process for intermunicipal cooperation and dispute resolution

The County will be a member of two Summer Village IDPs: Pigeon Lake North IDP with the Summer Villages of Argentia Beach, Golden Days, and Silver Beach; and Pigeon Lake South IDP with the Summer Villages of Crystal Springs, Grandview, Norris Beach, and Poplar Bay.
