Municipal Development Plan
Learn about Sturgeon County’s Municipal Development Plan and how it serves as a roadmap for how our community evolves and transforms.
Land Use Bylaw
The Land Use Bylaw assigns a specific district to every property:
- Country Residential
- Local Industrial and more.
Infrastructure Master Plan
The Infrastructure Master Plan is a critical document focused on land-use. There are key linear infrastructure components including water, wastewater, stormwater, and transportation/road systems. The Master Plan will examine the effects of potential growth scenarios on each component of infrastructure and explore solutions to any deficiencies encountered.

Off Site Levies
An offsite levy is a mechanism for municipalities to recover capital costs incurred for infrastructure improvements for new development or growth. Offsite levies transparently and equitably allocate offsite infrastructure capital costs to those that benefit – thus ensuring growth pays for growth.
