Annexation

Municipal annexation is the legal process by which a city or municipality acquires new land to be incorporated within their jurisdiction.

The City of Spruce Grove and Parkland County are currently engaged in annexation discussions. The goal is to achieve a collaborative annexation that meets the strategic interests of both the City of Spruce Grove and Parkland County. Long-term, the City of Spruce Grove, Town of Stony Plain and Parkland County have committed to a Regional Plan, which will guide future economic development, land use, and sustainability.

Memorandum of Agreement

On April 23, 2019, Parkland County Council and the Spruce Grove City Council both ratified a Memorandum of Agreement to facilitate the annexation process between the neighbouring municipalities.
