YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE LAND USE BYLAW UPDATE

The Land Use Bylaw is one of those big Town documents that most people know nothing about yet affects everyone.

The Town is updating this key planning tool and is looking for public input.

The Land Use Bylaw (LUB) is the Town’s primary tool to control and regulate how land is used and developed in Cochrane. This year, the Town is reviewing and updating the LUB, including sections that deal with zoning, building setbacks, building height, parking requirements, accessory suites, landscaping and garages.

Residents are being asked for input and feedback to help align the LUB update with community needs.

“It’s important for Cochrane’s Land Use Bylaw to meet the land use and development needs of our community,” says Riley Welden, Town planner leading the update project. ”We want to ensure a ‘made-in-Cochrane’ approach, and we’ll get a better result the more residents are involved.”

Welden has been holding land use bylaw information sessions with community associations, neighbourhood and business groups this month, as well as at the Cochrane Trade Show, to let people know what the LUB is, how it works and how it affects them.

There are two more public information sessions this month:

  • Tuesday May 15, 7-8:30pm, St. Mary’s Church, 10 River Heights Dr
  • Wednesday May 23, 7-8:30pm, St. Andrew’s Church, 128 First St E

The sessions are open to everyone interested in Cochrane’s planning documents. Each session has a presentation, time for discussion and questions and a survey to gather feedback.
