The Planning Division held public information sessions in the fall of 2019 regarding the consolidation and update for a New Rural Zoning By-law. The sessions and conversations both introduced this Project and started the discussion on what needs to be considered in the development of a New Rural Zoning By-law.

From discussions with the public, interested organizations and City staff, we have prepared a Discussion Paper. The draft Discussion Paper is available via the Zoning By-law Project webpage. It outlines preliminary options to address several key issues as well as discusses a potential format for the new document. We would like your comments and input to help the municipality as we start to prepare a draft New Rural Zoning By-law over the next several months. Some questions you might want to consider:

  • What opinions do you have on the key issues the municipality has identified?
  • Are there any other issues you believe should be considered as part of this zoning by-law review?
  • What map format would be easy for you to read?
  • Do you have a preference between the traditional form currently used in the municipality zoning by-laws or a table-based presentation of uses and regulations?
  • How would you like to be able to access information?

Please provide your comments by March 15, 2020.

The Discussion Paper as well as a Project update will be presented at Council meeting February 18, 2020 at 1pm. There will be an information report that will be part of the Regular portion of the meeting. The staff report is available from the Zoning By-law Project webpage.
