St. Paul North

Area Structure Plan

Addressing the long term-planning and development of 588.4 hectares of land.

Project Area

The Town of St. Paul (Town) and County of St. Paul (County) are currently looking to address the long-term planning and development of 588.4 hectares of land located adjacent to the northern end of the Town. This area includes both lands within the boundary of the Town and lands within the boundary of the County.

To address this planning and development, the Town and County are commissioning the preparation of an intermunicipal Area Structure Plan (ASP). Figure 1, Map of ASP Area outlines the area that will be included in the preparation of the upcoming ASP.

What is an ASP?

Area Structure Plans (ASP’s) are long-range planning documents, which provide a long-term vision for the future development of an area and outline the different steps that will need to be taken advance that vision. ASPs also provide details regarding different land uses, densities, utilities and infrastructure, and high-level design principles for the Plan area.

For new development to be undertaken, the ASP must first receive planning approval from the Town and/or County, then proceed through the rezoning, subdivision and development permit approval process. The creation and approval of an ASP is one of the first steps in obtaining this planning approval.

Project Timeline and Engagement Opportunities

As the ASP is developed over the next several months, there will be many different engagement opportunities for landowners, stakeholders and members of the community to get involved and provide feedback. The graphic to the left outlines the anticipated timeline for these activities.

The project team conducted landowner and stakeholder interviews, as well as an online community survey as part of Round 1 and Round 2 of engagement for the ASP project. Feedback will be used to inform the ASP draft and land use concept for the Plan area.

Stay tuned! There will be additional engagement opportunities as part of Round 3, including a community open house and online survey.
