Public hearing: Bylaw 1637/23 – Amendment to Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

Sturgeon County Council requests public input on proposed Bylaw 1637/23.

The applicant would like to create a natural resource extraction operation on the lands at 21012 Victoria Trail (legal land description: SE-12-57-21 -W4). This land is zoned as AG – Agriculture, which does not allow this type of activity.

To create a natural resource extraction operation in Sturgeon County, land must be zoned as RE – Resource Extraction. The applicant is requesting the land be rezoned to the RE – Resource Extraction district, which would allow them to apply for a natural resource extraction development permit.

Each time land is rezoned, a bylaw is needed to amend the Land Use Bylaw, and a public hearing must be held.
