Central Peace Land Use Bylaw Reviews
Central Peace Region, AB
ISL was retained by Saddle Hills County, the Municipal District (M.D.) of Spirit River No. 133 and the Town of Spirit River to complete a comprehensive review of each municipality’s existing Land Use Bylaw (LUB). The project was overseen by a Steering Committee consisting of representatives from the three client municipalities.
Some of the key LUB updates included the preparation of wind energy conversion systems (WECS) regulations, parcel size regulations and an airport vicinity overlay based on federal guidelines.
The team also prepared parcel-based LUB maps in colour for all three municipalities using GIS. The LUB maps for the M.D. and Town included an airport vicinity overlay around the Spirit River Airport.
The team used Saddle Hills County’s tax roll information to expedite the preparation of its overall LUB map. As the County covers a significantly greater area than the other two municipalities, its overall LUB map was supplemented with a series of separate inset maps for a total package of 19 LUB maps.
