Public hearing: Bylaw 1633/23 – Amendment to Land Use Bylaw 1385/17

Sturgeon County Council is requesting public input on proposed Bylaw 1633/23.

The property owner would like to operate an event venue on their land at 56210 Range Road 253 (legal land description: Lot 1, Block 1, Plan 1220583). 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 to AG2 – Agriculture 2 District, which would allow them to apply for an event venue development permit. Each time land is rezoned, a bylaw is needed to amend the Land Use Bylaw, and a public hearing must be held.
