MONDAY, July 12, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.

Virtual Meeting

[IMPORTANT – This meeting may be held virtually due to restrictions related to COVID-19.]

Town of Stony Plain Council will hold a public hearing for the purpose of hearing submissions regarding adoption of an updated Land Use Bylaw.

Purpose of Bylaw 2642/LUO/21 Land Use Bylaw Administrative Update 2021

To adopt an updated Land Use Bylaw.

The Land Use Bylaw sets the rules and process for approving subdivision applications and development permits. It divides the town into land use districts (zones) and indicates the type of land uses allowed in each one. It specifies general and district-specific requirements for the size and location of lots and buildings as well as provisions for parking and signage.

This administrative update provides clarity to provisions of the bylaw, addresses concerns raised during the past several years, and ensures alignment with the recent Municipal Government Act (Bill 48) changes.
