Public Hearings & Bylaw Consultation

Public Hearings are a way for the public to speak to Council directly on specific matters. Some bylaws require a public hearing to be held, such as re-zoning bylaws (land use re-designations) and area structure plans.  Bylaws subject to the Public Hearing process are posted on the Town's website and heard at either a Statutory or Non-Statutory Public Hearing. 

A Public Hearing has been scheduled for Monday, February 27, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. at the Town of Okotoks Municipal Centre Council Chamber regarding Bylaws 02-23 and 04-23.

Bylaw 02-23

Bylaw 04-23

The purpose of Bylaw 04-23 is to amend Land Use Bylaw 17-21 by redesignating approximately 20.94 hectares (51.74 acres) of NW 20-20-29 W4M from Agriculture and Land Holdings District to Traditional Neighbourhood District, Neighbourhood Core District, General Commercial District, Natural Areas District, and Recreation and Open Space District.
