Sylvan Lake Intermunicipal Development Plan

Lacombe County, Red Deer County, the Town of Sylvan Lake, Summer Village of Birchcliff, Summer Village of Half Moon Bay, Summer Village of Jarvis Bay, Summer Village of Norglenwold, and the Summer Village of Sunbreaker Cove are collaborating to create a new Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) between all partnering municipalities. Currently, no regional IDP exists between all partnering municipalities.

A regional IDP is a proactive and comprehensive approach to dealing with the growth challenges that lie ahead.
