Public hearing: Bylaw 1639/23 – Amendment to Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

Sturgeon County Council requests public input on proposed Bylaw 1639/23.

Sturgeon County regularly undertakes zoning audits to ensure each parcel has the correct zoning to reflect the use of the land. The County is proposing the following minor housekeeping updates to the Land Use Bylaw, which will change the zoning of three properties to better reflect the use of the land.

Parcel #1

Pt. NE-31-56-26-W4

Rezoning from AG – Agriculture to PU – Public Utility for the new location of the Alcomdale water truck fill station.

Parcel #2

Lot 1, Block 2, Plan 2122708

Rezoning a portion of a recently subdivided lot in Carbondale from AG – Agriculture to R3 – Hamlet Unserviced to match the rest of the hamlet.

Parcel #3

Pt. SE-27-56-23-W4

Rezoning a small portion of land within the Goose Hummock Golf Resort from AG – Agriculture to REC – Recreational to match the rest of the resort area.

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