Multi-Urban Inter-municipal Development Plans (IDP) Project

The County of St. Paul No 19, in partnership with the towns of St. Paul and Elk Point and the Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay, have engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. (ISL) to prepare and update IDP between the County and each of the partnering municipalities. These plans are required by Alberta Municipal Affairs and are intended to address future growth and development related matters of joint interest between the municipalities.

The project is being funded by a grant from the Alberta Government.
