Land Use Bylaw
The history of the civilized person is, in essence, the history of urban communities. For centuries, urban areas have represented mankind’s highest aspirations and nurtured his/her finest achievements. The concentration, diversity and complexity of urban communities generate intellectual energy and prosperity which, in turn, creates civilization—architecture, arts, science, religion, commerce and politics. Each community is unique, as is the expression of its diverse people, culture, environment and history.
A Land Use Bylaw allows the community to nurture quality development, while ensuring that substandard development, or potentially hazardous development, is discouraged. The bylaw also serves to balance the diversity and complexity of development with a common vision for the community. The implementation and enforcement of the Land Use Bylaw is an effort to balance personal freedoms with the common good. Each decision made in accordance with this bylaw must consider that delicate balance.
