Development Process Guidelines
Zoning regulates how we use land and helps ensure what is built is compatible with the surrounding area. It looks at:
- What types of buildings can be built
- What activities and businesses can happen there
- Requirements for things such as landscaping
Zoning considers building operations/use but not the user. Any information about who can live or work in the buildings, or whether the property is rented or owned cannot be taken into consideration as part of a rezoning application review.
The City’s Zoning Bylaw.booklet outlines what zoning is, how it shapes our community, and what the different types of zones are. For more detail, please see the
