Intermunicipal Development Plan
The Village of Hussar and Wheatland County have a history of collaboration and cooperation. This Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) builds on this past collaboration and sets the groundwork for continued joint planning for lands around the Village as identified by the IDP Area. The Municipal Government Act (MGA) mandates municipalities that share common boundaries to develop an Intermunicipal Development Plan to address: cooperation regarding planning matters of joint interest; addressing land use concerns; procedures for dealing with development proposals and any other matters related to development considered necessary (MGA s. 631).
Intermunicipal Collaborative Framework
The Municipal Government Act (MGA) requires municipalities to work collaboratively with neighboring municipalities to plan, deliver and fund intermunicipal services. The act requires municipalities with common borders to develop an Intermunicipal Collaborative Framework Agreement. This agreement must address services related to transportation, water, wastewater, solid waste, emergency services and recreation.
