A public hearing will be held on April 2 at Wheatland County to discuss how the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board’s (CMRB) interim growth plan and interim regional evaluation framework will fit in the county’s land use bylaw.
A select group of landowners in Wheatland County received a letter with maps explaining that their properties were now part of the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board’s area.
At their inaugural meeting of the board, it was explained that only a portion of Wheatland Country falls under the boundaries of the growth plan.
The letter to landowners explained that any development, subdivision or future planning in that area highlighted by the map, needs to be in compliance with the CMRB’s interim growth plan and interim regional evaluation framework.
This board was established on January 1, 2018 and it is supposed to provide planning for future growth in the municipalities within its scope.
People who wish to make comments at the hearing on the issue must forward a written submission quoting Bylaw 2018-40, the amendment to the Municipal Development Plan 2013-18, and Bylaw 2018-36, the amendment to the Land Use Bylaw 2016-01. Those submissions should be forwarded to the county no later than 12 on March 25.
The next meeting of the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board is in Calgary at Mount Royal University in February,
