Plans & Reports
Municipal Development Plan
The Municipal Development Plan (MDP) serves as the main framework for planning and development decisions in Innisfail. The plan is a statutory document, meaning it has been adopted by Town Council through bylaw.
It is based on a creative consensus surrounding the social, cultural, economic, built and natural environment. The MDP strategically addresses the community’s immediate needs while at the same time develops long-term goals for future development and growth of the community.
Town of Innisfail / Red Deer County Intermunicipal Development Plan
The Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) promotes a cooperative approach to managing future growth and development in the area around the town.
The IDP serves as a tool for coordinating future land uses and development between the two municipalities. It also establishes a framework for the two municipalities to work together to address issues of mutual concern.

Innisfail’s Land Use Bylaw regulates and controls the use and development of land and buildings. This document implements the policies contained in the Municipal Development Plan and other approved plans
