The Alberta Government has mandated every municipality sharing a border must create an Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP).
The M.D. of Provost has created a draft IDP with Flagstaff County that defines a Fringe Area between the jurisdictions. Development in this Fringe will be subject to the conditions of referral in this IDP when it takes effect with the proposed passing of Bylaw No. 2291.
The M.D. of Provost will hold a public hearing on August 22nd, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at the M.D. Administration Office in Provost prior to the second and third readings of the Bylaw.
Questions may be forwarded to Lauren Grosky at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (780) 753-2434.
