Town of Valleyview & M.D. of Greenview – Intermunicipal Development Plan (VVIDP)

In 2018 the Town of Valleyview and M.D. of Greenview began work on the process of updating and renewing our Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP), to replace the existing IDP from 2009.  The firm V3 Companies was chosen to spearhead the project under the leadership of Nick Pryce, Director of Planning Services. Through a series of meetings with a Citizens Panel made up of Town and MD residents, multiple joint Council meetings and many emails and calls with the planning departments of the Town and MD, a modern and robust Intermunicipal Development Plan was formed. As with the rest of the world, our plans were considerably slowed down from the Covid-19 pandemic, however, a successful public open house was held in November of 2020 and the final public hearing was held via Zoom on March 9th, 2021. This week at the Town of Valleyview Regular Council Meeting on March 22, 2021 and the MD of Greenview’s Regular Council Meeting held on March 23, 2021 both Councils passed the second and third and final reading of the IDP Bylaw, making it official!  Please see the table below for a brief explanation of what an Intermunicipal Development Plan is and what it does and check out the document itself by clicking on the link.

A big thank you to Sally Rosson and Price Leurebourg, MD of Greenview Planning and Development Department, and Nick Pryce and Elisa Stamatakis from V3 Companies for their professionalism, knowledge and support. As well, thank you to the members of the Citizens Panel and both Town and MD Councils for their invaluable input.

DEVELOPMENT & PLANNING

The Planning and Development Department is responsible for overall land use planning and development activity in the Town of Valleyview.

To do this we have established Vision, Values, and Principles as set forth in our Municipal Development Guide to assist in creating a community with sustainable, social, environmental and economic value now and in the future.

The goals of the Planning and Development Department are set out through the Municipal Development Plan, Land Use Bylaw, Policies and Procedures, Inter-Municipal Development Plan and the Valleyview Development Guidelines. These documents are provided in the links below and contain a wealth of information.

Before beginning any project please contact the Town Administration Office. The majority of development, construction and renovation projects are regulated by the Town of Valleyview and may require permits and inspections. The Land Use Bylaw is an important first step as it contains Zoning Regulations and General Regulations. As stated in the bylaw, with exceptions, “no person shall undertake any development in the Town unless a development permit has first been issued pursuant to this Bylaw, and the development is in accordance with the terms and conditions of a development permit issued pursuant to the Bylaw.”

As well, be sure to look at our Building and Safety Permits page. As with development applications, most construction and renovation projects will require permits and inspections. More information, as well as safety permit application forms, are located there.

If you have any questions please contact Trevor Ilg, Development Officer.

The purpose of the Town of Valleyview Municipal Development Plan (MDP) is to provide a planning framework for the future growth and development of the municipality that will assist in realizing the community’s long-range vision. 

*NEW*

The Town of Valleyview and MD of Greenview #16 both passed 2nd and 3rd reading of the IDP, Bylaw 2020-08 and Bylaw 20-860 respectively, at their Regular Council Meetings held the week of March 22, 2021.

The purpose of the Town of Valleyview & M.D. of Greenview No. 16 Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) is to not only update the prior IDP but to also establish a renewed collaborative  framework that guides future planning and development, manages growth, facilitates environmental initiatives, and supports collaboration around municipal infrastructure and vital community services. 

A comprehensive IDP built on a solid partnership of trust and respect can strengthen the local economy and continue  to support the region's vibrancy through collaborative governance. The IDP will provide a long-term mutually supported framework for future development in the area. 



These guidelines have been developed by the Town of Valleyview to help landowners and business plan for development that supports the community’s vision of a small traditional town with beautiful, walkable grid network of streets and a modern, thriving business community that is an attractive destination for visitors and workers.
