Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to provide Council with background information on proposed Bylaw C-1025-17 - 2017 Land Use Bylaw Annual Review Amendments in order to undertake the statutory public hearing.  This bylaw is the annual update of Land Use Bylaw C-824-12; the update is undertaken to provide clarity to existing definitions and regulations and to correct errors and omissions.
Proposed Motion
That Council thank those in attendance for their input.
Land Use Bylaw C-824-12 was adopted in late 2012 and implemented on January 1, 2013.  In order to provide a high quality regulatory document, the Planning and Development Department undertakes an annual review of the bylaw.  This review does not propose to make major changes to the regulations; the purpose of this update is to fine tune definitions and regulations, provide enhanced clarity and fix inconsistencies.  

For additional information, please see the RFD for second and third readings contained within the February 26, 2018 council agenda.
These proposed amendments were collected through 2017 from Administration and the development industry and have been circulated to Administration for feedback and issue resolution.

The Spruce Grove Chapter of the Urban Development Institute were consulted and notified of the public hearing.  Notice of the public hearing was placed in the February 9th and 16th, 2018 editions of the Spruce Grove Examiner and on the City's website.
Upon third reading of the bylaw, the amendments will be consolidated into Land Use Bylaw C-824-12 and posted on the City's website.
The amendments will enhance and clarify the definitions and regulations to allow the development community and staff to better utilize the City's Land Use Bylaw.  This, in turn, allows Administration to provide more efficient and effective customer service.
