IDP Town of Athabasca & Athabasca County

Project Background

The Town of Athabasca and Athabasca County have engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. (ISL) to update the Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP). The IDP is a coordinated and cooperative policy framework to address future growth and development-related matters of joint interest between the municipalities, including future land use surrounding the Town.

The existing IDP was adopted in 2011, and the plan requires updating to make sure that it remains current and reflects the future growth needs of both the Town and County. The update will also ensure the plan meets the new requirements of the Municipal Government Act (MGA), and reflects new and emerging priorities in the area.
