First reading given to land use bylaw

Open house to be held to discuss land use bylaw on July 25.

 

After several months of planning, re-writing, revising and editing, the Town of Rimbey’s land use bylaw is ready for public scrutiny.

Hard copies of the bylaw are available at the front counter of the town office and are also on the town’s website.

First reading to the document was given at the June 13 meeting of council and an open house will be held July 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the council chambers.

Administration, the town planner Liz Armitage, engineers and councilors will be on hand to answer questions during the open house.

Armitage said public input is important.

“The town does want feedback,” she said, noting the entire bylaw has been re-written.

“It’s a completely new document. The bones of this document should last for many years although amendments will be needed to keep it up to date.”

The town planner explained that a land use bylaw is needed to provide rules and regulations for the town to develop in a cohesive manner. She noted that the previous land use bylaw was created several years ago and is no longer current.

“For example we have included solar panels as a use in this one,” she said. “This document is as proactive as you can get.”

Armitage encourages the public to attend the public hearing or submit comments in writing to her at the town office. Written submissions should be handed in by July 8 so they can be incorporated into the land use bylaw in time for the public hearing.
