Inter-Municipal Development Plan: UrbanRecent amendments made to the Municipal Government Act (MGA) by the Province of Alberta require all municipalities to adopt Intermunicipal Collaboration Frameworks (ICFs) with each municipal neighbor that shares a common boundary. ICFs promote intermunicipal collaboration, specifically in relation to the provision of services to residents.
To fulfill this mandate, the County of St. Paul, along with its municipal partners the Town of St. Paul, Town of Elk Point, and Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay engaged Transitional Solutions Inc. to facilitate the development of ICFs between each urban municipality and the County.
