The City of Lacombe reviewed its Land Use Bylaw and we want to thank you for your input! This page represents an archive of the process and will not be updated.
The City partnered with Parkland Community Planning Services (PCPS) to review and update the Land Use Bylaw. The City had not done an overarching review of the Land Use Bylaw for over a decade, and a number of regulations warranted a review. Further, the City has recently adopted a number of high level plans, which impact the Land Use Bylaw. The Review ensured that the Land Use Bylaw aligns with these high level plans.
The City adopted Land Use Bylaw 400 on October 24, 2016 with implementation set for January 1, 2017.
