The new Land Use Bylaw was adopted by Council on June 14, 2021. Thank you to everyone who participated in the process of developing this new bylaw.
The Town hosted an online information session May 13. and the recording is available here:
The previous Okotoks Land Use Bylaw was adopted in 1998. At that time, Council had recently adopted a finite growth model premised on managing growth within the carrying capacity of the Sheep River. A lot has changed since 1998. Since that time the Town has shifted from a finite growth model to a continued growth philosophy, undertaken a large annexation, and adopted a new Municipal Development Plan, which sets a new direction for the future growth of Okotoks. The new Land Use Bylaw reflects the vision of the MDP and is a more user friendly, succinct document that will support future growth.
