Sturgeon County is requesting public input on Bylaw 1628/23.
The property owner would like to operate a disc golf facility. The bylaw proposes to redistrict a portion of NW-06-57-23-W4M (Lot 1, Block 1, Plan 1722474) from “AG – Agriculture” to “Direct Control District 23” for the purpose of operating a disc golf facility.
Each time land is rezoned, a bylaw is needed to amend the Land Use Bylaw and a public hearing must be held.
This is the second public hearing scheduled for this application. The applicant initially applied to rezone the land to “REC – Recreation District”. In response to the public’s concerns shared at the June 13, 2023, public hearing, administration developed a direct control district for the site, which reduces allowed land uses.
