Public hearing: Bylaw 1623/23 – Amendment to Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

The property owner would like to operate an event venue. This bylaw proposes to redistrict a portion of SE-2-55-23-4 (55010 Range Road 231) from “AG – Agriculture” to “AG2 – Agriculture 2 District” for the purpose of developing an event venue.

To operate an event venue in Sturgeon County, land must be zoned to “AG2 – Agriculture 2 District” before an applicant can apply for an event venue development permit. Learn more about event venues in Sturgeon County.

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