NEW Parks Bylaw

With the legalization of cannabis across Canada, the Municipal District of Provost No. 52 has amended its Parks Bylaw to forbid the consumption of alcohol and cannabis in public spaces at both Shorncliffe Lake and Capt Ayre Lake. If someone were to violate this bylaw, they would face a fine of $250.00.

If you wish, please take some time to familiarize yourself with the conditions of the new Parks Bylaw, which is attached as a PDF below. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Bylaw, please feel free to contact the M.D. of Provost Administration Office at 780-753-2434.

Paintearth IDP and ICF Bylaws

In accordance with the Municipal Government Act R.S.A. 2000, c. M-26 (as amended), all municipalities in Alberta are mandated to prepare intermunicipal development plans and intermunicipal collaboration frameworks with their municipal neighbours by April 1st, 2020 to formalize their relationships in regards to future land use within fringe areas and intermunicipal service provision, respectively.

Consequently, the M.D. of Provost No. 52 and the County of Paintearth No. 18 gave three readings and passed two corresponding bylaws containing their Intermunicipal Development Plan and Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework in September, following a rigorous public consultation process which included landowner notification letters, separate public meetings, and separate public hearings.

To offer further detail, the Intermunicipal Development Plan defines a Fringe Area and contains regulations which directly impact the lands which are contained therein, as outlined in Appendix A of the document. The intent of this definition is not to curtail or restrict development, but rather provide a process which makes sure that potential cross-jurisdictional impacts arising from proposed development are given due consideration by all affected parties.

Moreover, the Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework codifies the current state of service provision, whether it be individually, intermunicipally, or provided by third-party contractors. The intent of the Framework is not to alter any standing agreements or levels of service provision; it is merely meant not only to fulfill a legislated requirement by the Government of Alberta but to also provide a thorough examination of the current status of services between the M.D. and the County in order to better serve their respective ratepayers in the future.

If you wish, please read through the Intermunicipal Development Plan and Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework, which are attached below. If there are any questions, comments, or concerns, please forward them to Lauren Grosky, Intern to the C.A.O., at the M.D. of Provost Administration Office, or by email at lgrosky@mdprovost.ca.
