Public hearing: Bylaw 1624/23 – Amendment to Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

Sturgeon County Council is requesting public input on proposed Bylaw 1624/23.

The property owner would like to operate an event venue on their land at 26127 Highway 633 (legal land description: NW-11-54-26-4). This land is zoned as AG – Agriculture, which does not allow this type of activity.

To operate an event venue in Sturgeon County, land must be zoned as AG2 – Agriculture 2 District. The applicant is requesting the land be rezoned from
AG – Agriculture to AG2 – Agriculture 2 District. If successful, they could apply to develop an event venue.

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