Land Use Bylaw C-1260-85 / PL170921

Land Use Bylaw amendment C-1260-85 was approved by City Council on February 12, 2018

Bylaw amendment C-1260-85 proposes to amend the LUB to allow an oversize billboard to be located at 8707 108 Street.  The amendment would add a new definition for Super-size Billboards that could have a sign area of 4.27 m high by 14.63 m wide (62.47m2) and allow a billboard of that size at this specific location only. The amendment would allow super-size billboards to only have static displays.  Electronic message displays would not be permitted.

This Land Use Bylaw amendment application proposes to regulate the development of this and future super-size billboards by creating the new definition and establishing minimum standards, and also requiring that every proposed super-size billboard would need a site-specific amendment to the LUB. This would allow each LUB amendment application to be considered based on the specific characteristics of that site.

The proposed location is the northwest corner of 8707 – 108 Street, which contains the Peace Wapiti School Division offices, shops and bus parking. It is on the east side of 108 Street. A regular-size, two-sided, static billboard is currently at this proposed location. It would be replaced by a much larger billboard that would also be two-sided and static. A second billboard is also located on the site, 223 m south of the first.

Arbour Hills Outline Plan C-1281-3, Arbour Hills Area Structure Plan C-1212E and Land Use Bylaw C-1260-33 / PL170963

These amendments were approved by City Council on February 12, 2018

These bylaws propose to rezone two parcels within the Arbour Hills area.   Bylaw C-1260-33 will rezone land from Combined Residential - RC to Small Lot Residential - RS.  The second rezoning is from Combined Residential - RC to General Residential - RG.  The proposed changes are intended to allow for development that better meets market demands.

The proposed amendments are intended to accommodate the rezoning of two parts of the Arbour Hills plan area. An area near the center of the plan is proposed to change from RC- Combined Residential to RS - Small Lot Residential. The other, in the south of the plan area near 132 Ave, is proposed to change from RC - Combined Residential to RG - General Residential. Both changes are intended to allow for single-family housing, rather than multi-family. The change near the centre of the plan area includes the elimination of a rear-lane, requiring front access to those properties. As a result, a small roundabout is proposed to calm traffic along the collector road.
