New changes to the Municipal Government Act have mandated that municipalities sharing a common boundary must develop an Intermunicipal Development Plan to foster a collaborative planning approach for these lands.  These plans must be in place by April 1, 2020.

Intermunicipal Development Plans must promote consultation and cooperation between the participating municipalities regarding planning matters of joint interest within a defined planning area.  They also provide a framework for processing development proposals, subdivision applications or concerns within this defined area.

The Village of Rockyford and Wheatland County have created a draft document which incorporates the requirements of the legislation.  

The draft Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) can be viewed here.

A Public Open House is planned for Wed., Jan. 15, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.   At that time, there will be staff from Rockyford and Wheatland County as well as Councillors of both municipalities on hand to answer questions and receive comments.
