To understand and better prepare for growth in the Leduc region, the City of Leduc and Leduc County developed a Joint Sustainable Growth Study in 2008. The purpose of the study was to identify the growth pressures and land requirements in the Leduc area, and to determine where growth would be most feasible based on factors such as infrastructure, sustainable growth principles and economic development pressures.

An Inter-municipal Development Plan is a statutory municipal policy plan enforced by provincial regulations and prepared by neighbouring municipalities. The main purpose of an IDP is to ensure that development within two or more municipalities reflects the mutual and individual interests of the municipalities involved. An IDP will often focus on boundary areas between rural and urban municipalities.

City of Leduc Municipal Development Plan

NOTE: The city is currently updating its MDP (click HERE to review the draft) and is holding an open house to provide the draft for review. Click HERE to learn more.

Municipal Development Plans (MDPs) are statutory policy documents prepared by municipalities and enforced by provincial regulations. An important purpose of an MDP is to outline how growth and development will be managed.

The City of Leduc's MDP determines where growth is most feasible based on such factors as infrastructure, sustainable growth principles, and economic development opportunities. The MDP also addresses the environment; the economy and tourism; social wellness and safety; recreation and culture; governance; and the administration, monitoring, and implementation of MDP policies.

The MDP is based upon the results of the Imagine Leduc 2035 citizen engagement process, which provided the City of Leduc with a clear direction of how the community wants Leduc to grow and develop in the future.
