Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee Update

Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee Update

The City of St. Albert and Sturgeon County’s Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee met on October 2 to discuss the City’s proposed annexation of a portion of land from Sturgeon County.

At the meeting, the Sub-Committee agreed on a revised proposed annexation boundary for public engagement. This new boundary is based on technical studies and further conversation of the Annexation Sub-Committee. The next step is for the City to seek input from affected landowners in November. More information on the public participation opportunities will be shared in the next few weeks. The input gathered through these public participation opportunities will inform discussions about any potential adjustments to the proposed annexation boundary.

“The negotiation process has been collegial and collaborative, and we are pleased to have reached an agreement on a revised proposed annexation boundary,” says St. Albert Councillor Ray Watkins, Chair of the Annexation Negotiating Sub-Committee.

“Our municipalities, throughout the negotiation process, have considered the needs of both City and County residents and the proposed boundary reflects that approach,” says Sturgeon County Mayor Alanna Hnatiw.

The meeting provided the first opportunity for recently elected Division 2 Councillor Kristin Toms from Sturgeon County to participate in the Sub-Committee’s negotiations. The Sub-Committee also discussed how City bylaws will be transitioned to the annexed lands once the annexation is complete. The City will be sharing information on the transition with affected landowners as part of the annexation process.

The Annexation Committee is a subset of the Intermunicipal Affairs Committee (IAC), which is made up of all members of both Councils. The annexation negotiations formally started on December 6, 2017. The next meeting of the Annexation Negotiating Committee is scheduled to take place on November 22, 2019. For more information, visit
