Edmonton submits application to annex land from Leduc and Beaumont
The City of Edmonton submitted an application to the province Thursday to annex 8,857 hectares from Leduc County and the Town of Beaumont.
This latest step comes after work that started in 2013 when Edmonton first announced its intent to annex land from both regions.
The formal application includes land in Leduc County agreed to in the Annexation Agreement signed on June 30, 2017 and nine quarter sections of Beaumont.
For Edmonton, this submission marks a significant milestone.
“We want to recognize and thank the landowners who took time to engage with the city and provide valuable feedback,” city manager Linda Cochrane said.
“Being able to go to the Municipal Government Board (MGB) with an annexation application supported by Leduc County represents many years of hard work and dedication from the negotiating committees and administrations from both the city and county. It demonstrates a collaborative planning approach is possible and necessary for the good of the whole region.”
