Land Use Bylaw Review
The County of Wetaskiwin is excited to announce the start of a significant project to modernize and enhance its Land Use Bylaw. This comprehensive review and update are crucial steps towards ensuring a more efficient, sustainable, and vibrant future for our community. The current Bylaw, while effective in its time, requires updating to align with changing demands, address emerging trends, and foster responsible growth and development in our community.
The Land Use Bylaw Review and Update Project will involve an extensive collaboration between the County of Wetaskiwin, local stakeholders, industry experts, and the community at large. This process will encourage input from a diverse range of perspectives to ensure that the new Bylaw reflects the aspirations and priorities of the people it serves.
Land Use Bylaws have many benefits:
The existing Bylaw has not been substantively reviewed in over 20 years. Creating a more current Land Use Bylaw is one of the many ways the County is working hard to make the Wetaskiwin region an attractive community for economic investment while balancing the impacts of development on the environment and the local community.
The Project is currently in Phase 2, where we will complete our background research and review of the current Land Use Bylaw, explore best practices, determine how to streamline and reduce redundancy, and ensure consistency across the different municipal planning documents.
Next up is Phase 3, where you come in! We will be kicking off the community information sessions! Coming to four communities across the County, we will be presenting more about the project. Join us this fall at one of our information sessions
