Project Description
GSA worked as a planning sub-consultant to planningAlliance to complete the final revisions and approval process for the Intermunicipal Development Plan between the Town of Mayerthorpe and Lac Ste. Anne County. GSA principal Dnyanesh Deshpande previously led this project while working at planningAllaince. The project scope included preparation of the IDP policy framework, developing a Cost and Resource Sharing Agreement and creating an Area Structure Plan that will guide future growth, establish a regional vision and development pattern for Lac Ste. Anne County and the Town of Mayerthorpe.

The IDP provides the foundation for the County and Town to work in partnership for a progressive and planned future. The IDP addresses land use policies for transitional land uses, agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial/business park, institutional and general land use. It also provides direction for future parks, leisure and open spaces and trails, transportation networks, servicing, infrastructure and utilities and urban growth scenarios.
