Major Statutory Plans
Municipal Development Plan
The Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is required by the Municipal Government Act (MGA). It sets out the goals and policies for all aspects of the municipality's development. CityPlan is the City's MDP and provides policy direction to guide the city's growth to a population of approximately 105,000 by 2029. Policy areas include: population and growth management; housing and neighbourhood design; economic activities and development; parks, recreation and schools; environmental management; transportation and infrastructure; social, health and protective services and intermunicipal and regional cooperation and planning.
Intermunicipal Development Plan
The Intermunicipal Development Plan, approved by both Sturgeon County and the City of St. Albert in 2001 to outline a coordinated and cooperative framework for managing the use and development of lands adjacent to the boundary of St. Albert, within Sturgeon County, was repealed by Sturgeon County in June 2010. However, the City of St. Albert continues to refer to IDP Bylaw 7/2001 for future plan and development referrals as it contains a level of detail to guide intermunicipal planning that is not contained in the Capital Region Board Growth Plan or Sturgeon County’s Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw.
