In accordance with the Municipal Government Act and the Sturgeon County Public Notification Bylaw, Sturgeon County Council is requesting public input on proposed Bylaw 1640/23.
This Bylaw seeks to bring the approach to property assessment for designated manufactured homes into compliance with the Municipal Government Act and proposes to designate the owner of a manufactured home community as the assessed person for a designated manufactured home in the community. This has been the practice in Sturgeon County for almost two decades.
Bylaw 1640/23 is required because changes to the zoning for manufactured home communities in Land Use Bylaw 1385/17 resulted in the current system not being legislatively compliant. It is important to note that property assessment values are not affected by this Bylaw.
Right of Petition
Unless a petition of the electors of Sturgeon County is received, Council may consider passing proposed Bylaw 1640/23.
The proposed Bylaw can be examined on the Sturgeon County website at www.sturgeoncounty.ca or between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday in the office of the Legislative Advisor, Sturgeon County Centre, 9613 100 Street, Morinville, Alberta.
A person wishing to file a petition in respect of the proposed Bylaw must do so in accordance with Part 7 of the Municipal Government Act and should consult the Alberta Municipal Affairs online publication Petition to council information for Albertans, elected officials and municipal officers. A petition of electors must be filed with Legislative Services in person between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, in the office of the Legislative Advisor, Sturgeon County Centre, 9613 100 Street, Morinville, Alberta.
A petition for a vote of electors on proposed Bylaw 1640/23 must be filed no later than March 20, 2024 at 4:30 p.m.
