Public Hearing – Bylaw 1609/23 Amendment to the Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

Published on Jun 01, 2023

This is a re-opening of the public hearing initially held April 11, 2023.

Sturgeon County Council is requesting public input on proposed Bylaw 1609/23. This bylaw proposes the following:

  1. Create an urban reserve overlay that would apply to most land within the Sturgeon Valley South Area Structure Plan (ASP). This would allow for interim development while remaining consistent with the vision for the area.
  2. Create two new land use districts: IND – Integrated Neighbourhood District and CMUD – Commercial Mixed-Use District. These districts would apply to future development in the Sturgeon Valley South ASP area. They will guide the development of unique high-density communities in the area.

Since the initial public hearing on April 11, 2023, we’re proposing the following changes:

  • Permits for residential development (including uses accessory to residential development) will not be time-limited.
  • The urban reserve overlay will not apply to lands within the Sturgeon Valley South ASP identified for future agricultural use.
  • The urban reserve overlay will apply to future road alignments.
  • We will amend the subdivision regulations of the urban reserve overlay so subdivision of AG – Agriculture lands can still be considered as per the regulations of that land use district.

The public hearing will be held on:

Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at 2:30 p.m. (or as soon as practical thereafter) at:

Sturgeon County Council Chambers
9613 100 St.
Morinville, Alberta

The public hearing will also be livestreamed at
