Redistricting is the process of changing the land use district that applies to a particular parcel of land. It is sometimes called rezoning.
A rezoning application (PDF) is made by a landowner in order to rezone their land, or a portion thereof, to a designation which is suitable to their planned development.
Approval of Application\Public Consultation
Once received, the application is referred to various government agencies, adjacent municipalities and internally for review. Once all referrals have been received, a Public Hearing for Council is scheduled, advertised in the local paper and all adjacent landowners are notified of the Hearing and background information.
