PUBLIC HEARING BY-LAW NO. 12.17
LAND USE BYLAW AMENDMENT

A Public Hearing will be held on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in the Town of Sundre Council Chambers.

The purpose of Bylaw 12.17 is to provide administrative changes to the Town of Sundre Land Use Bylaw No. 705. Streamlining the subdivision and development processes include shifting the development authority for subdivision and development applications to the administration for decision. The development authority, for the most part, would rest with the Chief Administrative Officer, Manager of Planning and Development, and designated Development and Subdivision Officers. The amendments include a mechanism to refer the more complex applications to Council for consideration and direction, before a decision is made. These amendments, together with the streamlined process, will provide administrative efficiencies for applicants and staff by improving customer service and the timing for application processing. It also will free up time so staff can focus better on customer service and addressing other important planning matters. Other changes include adding definitions for clarification purposes and a new Use.

A copy of the proposed Bylaw may be inspected by the public during regular office hours, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday at the Town Office (717 Main Avenue W.), or can be found on the Town’s website (www.sundre.com).
