The Town of Okotoks is proposing to amend the Land Use Bylaw to redesignate the vacant property at the corner of Clark Avenue and McRae Street (34/38 McRae Street), known as the Landmark Site, from the current designation of Central Business Commercial District (C-CB) to a Direct Control District (DC) with a limited range of land uses and development provisions.
This land use redesignation is proposed by the Town of Okotoks in order to allow for the development of a microbrewery on the subject lands and limit the other potential uses on the site to eating and drinking establishments, retail stores, and offices as well as dwelling accommodations on a second floor. The intent is to encourage the development of uses that contribute towards a more animated downtown.
An amending bylaw (Draft Bylaw 25-16) received first reading on November 14, 2016. All bylaws require three readings by Council before they take effect. The Town encourages public feedback on bylaws which have an effect on citizens of Okotoks. To provide feedback to the Draft Bylaw 25-16 please click here.
