Public hearing: Bylaw 1647/24 – Amendment to Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

Sturgeon County Council requests public input on proposed Bylaw 1647/24.

Sturgeon County is proposing amendments to the Land Use Bylaw (Bylaw 1385/17) Public Open Space District (POS) and Environmental Preservation (EP) Districts: 

  • To remove reference to the terms ‘public’ in order to focus on land use and not ownership.  
  • To amend the list of permitted and discretionary uses within both districts.  

A bylaw is needed to amend the existing Land Use Bylaw, and a public hearing must be held.
