CURRENT SURVEYS & PUBLIC INPUT
Public Hearing for Municipal Development Plan Bylaw 220-2020
The Summer Village of South View is currently part of a 3-component project along with 7 other municipalities. One component is to adopt a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will be a mandatory requirement for all municipalities under the Modernized Municipal Government Act. The Municipal Development Plan is a primary document that guides the future development and growth of the whole community. The MDP sets the vision on how to accommodate this growth responsibly and serves as an important decision-making tool for Council, administration and all stakeholders. As a statutory plan required by the Alberta Municipal Government Act, the MDP provides direction for Council, administration, developers and builders, property-owners, residents and adjacent municipalities.
An MDP will address several items, including:
-future land use
Part of the process of creating and eventually adopting an MDP includes Public Consultation and Input.
1st Reading of Bylaw 220-2020 - A Bylaw to Adopt a Municipal Development Plan - was given on July 15, 2020.
A Public Open House for the Municipal Development Plan and Municipal Development Plan Bylaw 220-2020 has been scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at the Darwell Centennial Hall located at the Junction of Highways 765 and 633, Darwell, AB, Canada.
Public Hearing for Land Use Bylaw (LUB) 219-2020
In the years since the last Land Use Bylaw review, completed in 2015, Council has continued to be engaged in important development matters within your municipality. The Land Use Bylaw is a critical piece of the legislative framework for any municipality and Council understands the importance of getting the details right. To this end, Council began their review of the Land Use Bylaw in 2019. Working with municipal staff and our project consultant, a final draft of the proposed new Land Use Bylaw has been prepared. Introduced as Bylaw 219-2020, the proposed new Land Use Bylaw was given first reading during the July 15th, 2020 council meeting. A Public Hearing is required before Council can consider further readings of the Bylaw.
