Mackenzie County has recently initiated a project to undertake the Land Use Bylaw (LUB) Amendment. The LUB implements the vision established in the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) through land use districts, use classes, architectural controls and development standards. Since the current LUB was adopted in 2011, a review of this document is required in order to address current market demands and development trends.
The overall objective of the LUB Amendment is to develop and implement land use regulations regarding FireSmart principles as well as oil and gas industry land uses. Additionally, the LUB Amendment process provides the opportunity to develop a user-friendly document and update regulations to ensure consistency with other municipal and provincial planning documents.
