RM of Laird No. 404 Public Notice – Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw Amendments
Public Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Rural Municipality (RM) of Laird No. 404 intends to adopt two bylaws under The Planning and Development Act, 2007; one amendment to each Bylaw No. 5-2008, known as The Official Community Plan (OCP), and Bylaw No. 6-2008, known as The Zoning Bylaw (ZB).
INTENT: The proposed OCP and ZB amendments would: redesignate the land use policy from Rural to Industrial/Commercial; and, rezone from Agricultural District to Industrial/Commercial District, a portion of land within the RM. The changes would be effected by amending the Future Land Use Concept Plan and the Zoning District Maps in the OCP and ZB.
AFFECTED LAND: All of Parcel A, Plan 101491286 Ext. 54 (surface parcel # 146801718) located within SE ¼ 15–41–06–W3M would be subject to the proposed amendments. Said lands are located approx. 2 mi. west of Hepburn on Twp. Rd. 412. Copies of the proposed amendments and maps showing affected lands are available here for public viewing: https://rmoflaird.ca/category/rm–notices/
REASON: A long–established agricultural storage manufacturing facility is present on the affected land. The operator is looking to expand its facilities and there is limited developable area within the site. Redesignation and rezoning for Industrial/Commercial Use would allow more developable area within the site currently afforded to it by rural policy and agricultural zoning.
PUBLIC INSPECTION: Any person may inspect the bylaws at the RM of Laird No. 404 office during regular office hours, excluding statutory holidays. Draft copies of the proposed bylaws are available from the RM office; hard copies at cost, and a free digital copy is available at web address above. The RM office is located at 3025 Central Avenue, Waldheim, SK S0K 4R0.
PUBLIC HEARING: Council will hold a public hearing on September 8, 2022, at 10:00 AM, to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaw. The deadline for receipt of written comments and requests for representation at the meeting must be received by the RM office by September 7, 2022. For additional information, please contact (306) 945–2133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Issued at the Town of Waldheim this 12th day of August 2022.
