Land Use Bylaws under Review – Your input is wanted

The County has engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services to review its Municipal Development Plan (MDP), Land Use Bylaw (LUB), General Municipal Servicing Standards (GMSS), and Reserve Land Management Policy to identify and minimize inefficiencies. Through this review, the County will have more streamlined planning and development policies and regulations and will be able to provide a more efficient and effective service to landowners and businesses.  The documents can also be found on the Planning & Development under ‘Policies & Bylaws’.

How to get involved?

Background Information

The Government of Alberta has directed municipalities to reduce red tape inefficiencies – such as duplicate processes and rules– to save time, money, and resources while still protecting the environment, keeping Albertans safe and healthy, and upholding fiscal accountability.

Much like the Province, the County wants to make it easier for people to get the government services they need and reduce the regulatory burden on job creators to encourage investment, boost the local economy, and get more people back to work.

Project Process

This review process involves one-on-one interviews with key stakeholder groups, engagement with local businesses, residents and landowners, and a technical analysis of existing County policies and regulations. Engaging with the community is a key part of the project, which is why we have designed this survey to collect your input.

The anticipated completion date of this review is August 2021.
