Advocacy Plan

Council formalized goals and practices around advocacy to other levels of government and key stakeholders.  The objectives of coordinated advocacy are to:

  • Define what and how advocacy is conducted;
  • Outline roles and responsibilities of Council and Administration;
  • Define the advocacy initiatives with consistent key messages, target audience, stakeholders and tactics;
  • Provide transparency between Council and Administrations regarding the actions and the monitoring of interactions between Council and other levels of government; and
  • Track the effectiveness of advocacy for each initiative.

The advocacy strategy is updated annually in the first quarter to ensure the tactics are achieving the objectives and consistent with the Town Strategic Plan and Corporate Plan.

Area Redevelopment Plans

Area redevelopment plans (ARPs) guide the redevelopment of specific areas.

We are creating an area redevelopment plan called the Old Town Community Plan (OTCP). The OTCP will create a long-term vision for Stony Plain's “Old Town” and surrounding areas. For more information, please visit the Old Town Community Plan website.

Area Structure Plans

Area structure plans (ASPs) provide the framework for developing and servicing new areas of the Town. Council adopts ASPs before redistricting or subdividing land in newly developing areas. We require a public hearing for ASPs before the plan is brought to Council.

ASPs must include:

  • The sequence of development proposed for the area;
  • Proposed land uses;
  • Proposed population density;
  • The general location of major transportation routes and public utilities; and
  • All other matters considered necessary by Council.

ASPs commonly include:

  • Background information - location, ownership, and physical site conditions;
  • Contextual information - relevant statutory plans, development history, and adjacent land uses and densities;
  • A vision and concept plan;
  • Land use statistics including dwelling estimates;
  • Transportation networks;
  • An open space plan;
  • Utilities and services for water, sanitary, and stormwater; and
  • Development staging.

For more information, please see the Application and Guidelines for Area Structure Plans.

To view all approved area structure plans, please see the Area Structure Plans map.
