Joint Regional Growth Study (2019)

The City of Lloydminster and the County collaborated to complete a comprehensive Joint Regional Growth Study in June 2019.  This key planning document will provide valuable data for all inter-municipal planing, annexation processes, and further growth opportunities.

Lloydminster IDP

The purpose of the IDP is to establish a regional framework for attracting economic opportunities and managing land use, subdivision and development in the IDP area. The City and County want to improve opportunities to secure a long-term economic base, establish consistency in land development, and to facilitate inter-municipal communication in land development matters. Further, the municipalities want to be “development ready” and future-oriented in their planning efforts and thus acquire an edge over other municipalities in attracting additional economic activity.

This Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) is divided into four sections:

  • an introduction containing background information,
  • a detailed explanation of the intent of the IDP concept,
  • a set of specific policies that will guide the Approving Authorities in their decisions
  • a set of implementation statements and directives that will guide the two municipalities in terms of process and policy content.

The Appendices contain support information that is of benefit to applicants for development.

The purpose of the IDP is to establish a coordinated and cooperative framework for attracting economic opportunities and managing land use, subdivision and development in the IDP area. The Town of Vermilion and the County of Vermilion River want to minimize competition for development opportunities, to establish consistency in land development, and to facilitate inter-municipal communication in land development matters. Further the municipalities want to be “development ready” and future-oriented in their planning efforts and thus acquire an edge over other municipalities in attracting additional economic activity.
