Annexation Public Hearing
Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Bon Accord Arena - Mezzanine Level
10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
Bon Accord submitted an annexation application and negotiation report to the Municipal Government Board (MGB) on July 4, 2017. A copy of the application is available for viewing at the Town Office. This document cannot be removed from our Office.
The MGB received Bon Accord's annexation application on July 6, 2017. Although the Town of Bon Accord and Sturgeon County have successfully negotiated an agreement, the MGB notes the application cover letter identifies there is an objection to the Annexation. In accordance with Section 120 of the Municipal Government Act the MGB must conduct a public hearing.
On June 13, 2017 Sturgeon County Council voted unanimously to support the annexation process. Administration is proceeding, with our planning consultant, MPS, to submit the annexation package to the Municipal Government Board (MGB) for their decision.
The Town of Bon Accord will formally submit the annexation application and negotiation report to the MGB on July 4, 2017.

Bon Accord Council reconsidered the conservative approach to their annexation strategy. Council has directed Administration to pursue the annexation of an additional two (2) quarter sections; NE 13-56-24-W4, and NW 18-56-23-W4, in addition to the initial quarter section of land located at SE 13-56-24-W4. Notice of this revised intent has been given to Sturgeon County and the Municipal Government Board.
Council feels this revised strategy will enable better long term planning, mitigate or minimize risk associated with stalled development and provide for consistent, streamlined annexation process that will enable and ensure transparency for residents, Local Authorities and affected or adjacent Landowners.
