The MD is hosting open houses in June to gauge community input into the complete rewrite of the Land Use Bylaw.
June 23, 2021 at Mitsue Firehall 12-2pm (industry consultation pre-registration necessary) and Widewater Community Complex 4-7pm
June 24, 2021 at Smith Community Complex 11:30am-2:30pm and Flatbush Community Complex 4-7pm
A Land Use Bylaw is an important piece of legislation that outlines the rules and regulations for land development within the MD, and that helps govern the process of making decisions for development permit applications. A rewrite of the current Bylaw is fundamental to delivering on the MD’s vision of sustainable growth that aligns with the needs and priorities of the community.
Take part in one of the upcoming open houses to review what changes have been made to date, and be a part of the decision making on important matters.
During the Land Use Bylaw rewrite, decisions are being made on several issues, for example, the number of chickens/animals allowed on lots; heavy truck storage in residential neighbourhoods; subdivision sizes allowed in the Agricultural district; second dwellings on lots, including garden suites and secondary suites; the number of RVs allowed on lots; and other land use legislation.
Share your concerns, insights and innovative suggestions regarding land development. A critical part of the process for developing new bylaws is facilitating opportunities for citizens to provide input and feedback. Take part in an upcoming open house and exercise your democratic right to provide meaningful input into the rewrite of this guiding document.
Physical copies of the draft LUB and reference maps are being distributed to the Flatbush Store; the Smith Post Office; and Winks in Canyon Creek.
