Intermunicipal Develpment Plans (IDP) - Notice of Public Open Houses

The Municipal District of Wainwright No. 61 and the Village of Chauvin, Village of Irma, Village of Edgerton and Town of Wainwright are working to prepare new Intermunicipal Development Plans (IDP) pursuant to the Municipal Government Act, R.S.A 2000, c. M-26, as amended.  An Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) is a mandatory statutory plan prepared by two (or more) municipalities that share a common border. An IDP ensures future development concepts and land use policies for areas of mutual interest, are coordinated between the two municipalities, and help to reduce the possibility of any future land use conflicts between the municipalities by establishing processes for communication, referral, and dispute resolution.

The 2019 Village of Edgerton & M.D. of Wainwright Intermunicipal Development Plan replaces the 2011 IDP adopted by the Village and the M.D.  The 2019 Town of Wainwright & MD of Wainwright Intermunicipal Development Plan replaces the 2015 IDP adopted by the Town and the M.D.  These new IDPS have been prepared to ensure that the plans are current with the amended Municipal Government Act, and that they reflect the current development and regulatory environments affecting lands within the plan areas.

In addition, the Village of Chauvin, Village of Irma and Village of Edgerton are working to adopt their own Municipal Development Plans (MDP). The MDP is a high-level planning document that guides the long-term planning for the community. It is the preeminent planning document for a community’s municipal government and will provide direction for all other policies created for each of the communities.

As such, the Villages, the Town and the M.D. would like to invite residents to attend public meetings in each of the communities where representatives of the Villages, the Town, the M.D., and its planning consultants will be in attendance, and the public will be asked to provide their thoughts on future land use, development and redevelopment within the Wainwright region.  The public meetings for each of the communities will be held according:
