Canmore is updating its Land Use Bylaw. The Land Use Bylaw directs the town’s form and use, and though most of the Bylaw will remain unchanged, the Town is modernizing key regulations to account for community changes, suggestions, challenges, and aspirations.
Click here to see the current Land Use Bylaw. The Land Use Bylaw helps Canmore work towards its Municipal Development Plan vision:
Canmore is a resilient and vibrant community, socially, economically, and environmentally. Its strength is in its resourceful and engaged citizens, who thrive together on the strength of the community’s heritage, long-term commitment to the diversity of its people, and health of the mountain landscape.
To reach this vision, each regulation within the Land Use Bylaw plays a role in supporting sustainable growth, respecting community character, improving mobility choice, and more.
We are not discussing everything in the Land Use Bylaw at this time, but instead focusing on key amendments that:
- Are becoming more popular due to changing preferences, values, and aspirations
- Require a re-visit to ensure the guidance is well-defined, effective, and reflects community desires
- Make the direction in the Land Use Bylaw clearer and easier to use
Specifically, we want to cover topics that contribute to Canmore’s Street Life, Housing, Building, and Land.
