RM of Laird No. 404 Public Notice – Planning and Development Fee Bylaw Public Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Rural Municipality (RM) of Laird No. 404 intends to adopt a Planning and Development Fee Bylaw under section 51 of The Planning and Development Act, 2007.
INTENT: The bylaw is intended to allow the RM to charge cost-recovery fees related to the review and processing of development-related matters. Fees would be applied to the review, advertising, approval, enforcement, regulation, and issuance of: development permits, discretionary uses, minor variances, and amendments to the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw. Rationale for the fees will accompany the proposed bylaw. Any previously adopted planning and development fees would be repealed.
REASON: The RM wishes to avail itself of the legislated cost-recovery tool such that development review costs are more appropriately borne by development proponents, thereby minimizing costs for general ratepayers.
PUBLIC INSPECTION: Any person may inspect the bylaw at the RM office between during regular office hours, excluding statutory holidays. Draft copies of the proposed bylaw are available from the RM office (hard copy at cost). The RM office is located at 3025 Central Avenue, Waldheim, SK S0K 4R0. A draft copy
of the proposed bylaw is also available at www.rmoflaird.ca/category/rm-notices/.
PUBLIC HEARING: Council will hold a public hearing on April 9, 2020, at 1:30 PM in the RM office to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaw.
