Land Use Bylaw Rewrite

Timeline for developing the new Land Use Bylaw

Land Use Bylaw timeline

A draft bylaw is now available for review. The proposed new bylaw dramatically simplifies the number of land use districts and the use types allowed within these districts. The bylaw focus more on the form of buildings than the specific use of the buildings and is designed to support long-term change when new and redevelopment occurs.

Next steps

Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey. A "What we heard" report is currently being created and will be shared with the public.

The feedback received from this second engagement will be reviewed and considered in the context of the policy framework for the Town. Once the final revisions to the bylaw have been completed, it will be made available for review before being brought to Council for consideration in spring 2021 through a public hearing process.


Thank you to everyone who participated in the first phase of engagement. From January 20 to February 14, 2020 the project team received insights and feedback from 469 participants, which was used to help guide the development of the initial draft bylaw.


Please join us Tuesday, November 17 at 7:00pm for the unveiling of the draft Land-Use Bylaw. The project team will be showcasing the updated approach to zoning in Okotoks and highlight ways the community's feedback was used to get us here! There will be a question and answer period for you to get a full understanding of how the Bylaw has changed and the process it took to get us here.
