Land Use Maps
The Land Use Bylaw 1P2007 provides a completely new array of land use districts. Therefore, all parcels of land in The City were redesignated when the new Bylaw came into effect June 1, 2008. To accomplish this, the existing land use for every property had to be reviewed and analyzed to determine the most appropriate new land use district designation for it.
The land use analysis and district transition process followed several guiding principles to ensure an equitable and consistent approach. As a general principle, the existing land use designation of a site was changed to the closest matching land use district in the new Land Use Bylaw.
Principles of the Transitioning Process
To facilitate the goals of the Land Use Bylaw and the purposes of the districts
To be consistent with existing policy, such as area structure plans, area redevelopment plans or other approved community planning policies
To facilitate clarity and legibility, so that land use maps are more representative of the development that is on, or allowed on, a parcel
To be consistent and equitable
To maintain a parcel's development potential, to the extent possible, recognizing the new Land Use Bylaw will include adjustments to processes and standards
Where possible to replace existing Direct Control districts with a new districts from the Proposed Land Use Bylaw, where the new districts closely match the regulations of the Direct Control Bylaw.
The Land Use (Zoning) Maps on this site show how the new districts in Land Use Bylaw 1P2007 have been applied to land in The City. They are provided for reference purposes only so please carefully read the disclaimer located at the bottom of the page.
