The Town of Devon successfully annexed roughly one section, or 680 acres, of land from Leduc County, effective Jan. 1, 2015. An order-in-council was issued on March 27, 2015, approving the annexation, retroactive to Jan. 1, 2015.
The Town of Devon announced its intention to jointly amend the Leduc County and Town of Devon Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) in November of 2013. The Town of Devon provided Leduc County with its Letter of Intent on Jan. 27, 2014, detailing its intention to annex roughly one section, or 680 acres, of land.
After nearly one year of collaborative discussions, the Town of Devon submitted its annexation application and report to the Municipal Government Board (MGB) with support from Leduc County.
