Sturgeon County Council requests public input on proposed Bylaw 1635/23.
The property owner would like to bring their existing fleet service (trucking) business into compliance with the County’s Land Use Bylaw on their land at 55013 Hwy 825 (legal land description: RL-24-55-22-W4M). This land is currently subject within the AG-Agriculture district, which does not allow this type of activity.
To operate a fleet service at this location the land use district must change, and the applicant is pursuing a Direct Control District. The purpose of a Direct Control District is to provide for developments that, due to their unique characteristics and/or site conditions, require specific direction unavailable in conventional land use districts. The applicant is requesting the land be rezoned to DC24 – Direct Control District 24, which would allow them to apply for a development permit for a fleet service.
Each time land is redistricted, a bylaw is needed to amend the Land Use Bylaw, and a public hearing must be held.
