Coming together in the spirit of collaboration, Parkland County, the City of Spruce Grove and the Town of Stony Plain have committed to the development of a new Regional Plan.

The Regional Plan will guide future economic development, land use, and sustainability across the region, with the best interests of all three communities in mind. The result will be responsible stewardship of financial, environmental, and human resources to create beneficial and sustainable growth for the entire Tri-Municipal Region.

The growth needs within the region can best be met through a coordinated and collaborative effort. Coming together to combine each municipality’s efforts will allow for the most effective return on investment and reduce the costs incurred by current and future ratepayers.

When completed, the Regional Plan will provide certainty for the region through alignment of key municipal elements.


“While we’ve had a strong history of partnering on regional initiatives, the regional letter of intent demonstrates our willingness to forge a deeper partnership, an alliance that will see strategic and coordinated planning and investments in the region.”

- Mayor Rod Shaigec, Parkland County

“As a Tri-Municipal Region, we certainly recognize there are significant benefits to working together that will benefit all our residents. This letter of intent for the development of a new Regional Plan is a wonderful example of how we are committed to developing collaborative ideas and solutions that will create synergies and savings in the region.”

- Mayor Stuart Houston, City of Spruce Grove

“Regionalism is a focused approach to collaborative systems across municipal boundaries while maintaining a localized autonomy and governance. The Town of Stony Plain believes in and will continue to advance regionalism through active efforts in planning and action.  The Town’s commitment is outlined in its Policy Statement on Regionalism. Signing this letter of intent for a Regional Plan is another example of how the Tri-Municipal Region is coming together to increase service levels to all residents of Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and Parkland County.”

- Mayor William Choy, Town of Stony Plain

Parkland County has grown to a community of over 30,000 people and has seen generations of families continue to enjoy country living.

An urban, modern city located just west of Edmonton, Spruce Grove is a diverse, future-focused municipality with a commitment to building an exceptional city through sustainable growth and strategic development. The “Community of Choice” for more than 35,000 people, Spruce Grove offers a strong mix of community, commerce and industry, and promotes a healthy, active lifestyle by providing high quality arts, culture, and recreation facilities and programs, while also maintaining high service levels for all residents.

Stony Plain is a vibrant, thriving, and diverse town with a unique cultural heritage and pioneer history. According to the 2016 Federal Census, there are 17,189 residents.
