County of Northern Lights Bylaw No. 22-61-472

Pursuant to Section 606 of the Municipal Government Act, being Chapter M-26 of the Statutes of Alberta, notice is hereby given that the Council of the Municipal District of Peace No. 135 and the Council of the County of Northern Lights will hold a joint Public Hearing before the second reading of Bylaw No. 4/2022 and Bylaw No. 22-61-472 to amend the Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) County of Northern Lights, Municipal District of Peace No. 135, being Municipal District of Peace No. 135 Bylaw No. 2/2019 and County of Northern Lights Bylaw No. 19-61-422.

Overview of Proposed Amendment

In 2019, the Municipal District of Peace No. 135 and County of Northern Lights adopted an Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) to manage planning and decision-making for an area of land along their shared boundary. Following a joint IDP review meeting held in April 2022, both Councils have agreed to amend the IDP, to address a development proposal while improving efficiency in the administration of the plan.

The proposed amendment will change the future land use for the following parcels to industrial land use (map 1):

  • Plan 1027025 Block 1 Lot 3 (in SW32-83-23W5)
  • SW 33-83-23W5
  • NE 32-83.23W5

The amendment also gives discretion to the MD and the County to allow additional residential subdivisions creating fewer than 6 lots in the Plan Area without amending the IDP, and in deciding when joint IDP Council meetings should be held.
