Businesses and community members invited to share ideas for improvements to the Land Use Bylaw

The City of Red Deer is embarking on a review of Red Deer’s Land Use Bylaw. Local businesses and community members are invited to share input on changes they would like to see incorporated to the bylaw.

The primary intent of the Land Use Bylaw review project is to review the fundamentals and regulations of the Land Use Bylaw, endeavouring to increase flexibility and adaptability by reducing regulations where they are not necessary. Equally important, we will be working to improve the document’s usability and reviewing the related processes to improve the customer experience.

“We understand that most people don’t experience the Land Use Bylaw through the regulations, but rather how they experience and feel the city,” said David Girardin, Major Projects Planner. “If a person knows what they want to see changed but aren’t sure which regulation it applies to, we’d like to hear about it so we can try to figure it out.”

The review is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete, due to the complexity of the document and the desire to incorporate internal and external feedback. Those interested can sign up to receive updates throughout the project.

The survey closes March 30, 2021. For more information and to provide feedback, visit www.reddeer.ca/LUBreview.
