Timeline: December 2016 - December 2017
Current Status: Contract has been awarded for consultant to complete the Zoning and Sign Bylaw Update
Project Background: The current Zoning Bylaw No. 466, 2001 has been amended from time to time within the last 15 years including some major revisions relating to new residential developments. The Village underwent a review and adoption of its Official Community Plan (Bylaw No. 654, 2011) several years ago which included new policies that must be incorporated into the zoning provisions. The Village is experiencing growth and development of home-based businesses and businesses involved in the sharing economy – technology driven businesses that did not exist and were never contemplated when the original bylaw was adopted.
The Village’s Sign Bylaw No. 380, 1995 has never been amended, and despite being twenty years old and on the Village’s work plan for several years, it has never been reviewed or updated. There has been much confusion and non-compliance with the Sign Bylaw that has come to light in the last few years. The Village is committed to undertaking a thorough review of the Sign Bylaw, including recommendations from the Chamber of Commerce and business owners on how to better reflect today’s marketing practices.
Project Details: The project will incorporate a community and stakeholder engagement component which will be announced once the program timeline has been confirmed.
