Public Input Requested
The Summer Village of Sunset Beach is currently part of a 3-component project along with 7 other municipalities. One component is to adopt a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will be a mandatory requirement for all municipalities under the Modernized Municipal Government Act. The Municipal Development Plan is a primary document that guides the future development and growth of the whole community. The MDP sets the vision on how to accommodate this growth responsibly and serves as an important decision-making tool for Council, administration and all stakeholders. As a statutory plan required by the Alberta Municipal Government Act, the MDP provides direction for Council, administration, developers and builders, property-owners, residents and adjacent municipalities.
An MDP will address several items, including:
- future land use
- future development
- municipal services
Part of the process of creating and eventually adopting an MDP includes Public Consultation and Input. Please see links below to engage in this Public Consultation Process:

Baptiste Lake Area Structure Plan Bylaw 17-80
The Baptiste Lake Area Structure Plan Bylaw 17-80 (the ASP) was developed in 1979 by the Municipal Affairs for the County of Athabasca and the Summer Village of Sunset Beach, and passed into bylaw in 1980. At the time of the development the ASP, recreational uses at the lake has expanded at a rapid rate. At the same time, there were increasing concerns raised be the local residents regarding the rapid rate of development, and regarding the deterioration of lake environment and water quality. In light of these concerns, Alberta Municipal Affairs and Alberta Environment conducted a number of studies into problems relating to future development of Baptiste Lake.
The Plan Area comprises the area around Baptiste Lake which was affected by the Regulated Lake Shoreland Development Operation Regulations, A.R. 233/77, and in the southwest portion of the Plan Area, the boundary is extended by about 0.8 km (0.5 miles) to include those lands which may be affected by the re-alignment of the ring road. The Plan Area is within the administrative boundaries of the County of Athabasca and the Summer Village of Sunset Beach. Note: This Regulation restricted subdivision and development on Lac Ste Anne, Isle Lake, Baptiste Lake, Gulf Lake, Garner Lake, Island Lake, Lac la Biche, Lac la Nonne, Moose Lake, Muriel Lake, Lake Nakamun, Sandy Lake, Skeleton Lake, Sturgeon Lake, and Wizard Lakes. The Regulation required that lake management plans be prepared and implemented through land use bylaws prior to initiating additional shoreline subdivision or development. This Regulation has been repealed by the Province.
