The Town of Sylvan Lake is inviting residents to provide input for two important ongoing projects.

A Land Use Bylaw (LUB) review is currently underway, and residents are being asked to provide input through an online survey.

All land within Sylvan Lake is regulated through the use and development of the LUB. The LUB is also used when implementing policies of various plans, including the Sylvan Lake Municipal Development Plan, Area Redevelopment Plans and Area Structure Plans.

Questions on the survey are divided into sections such as residential and commercial and industrial.

Topics centre on anything from secondary suites and backyard hen keeping to electronic signage and the presence of brew pubs in town.

A second online survey seeks Sylvan Lake residents’ input on the Town’s Transportation Master Plan. The plan will eventually result in a document that will provide guidelines for the future development of transportation networks in town.

The plan is being created to ensure preparation for the town’s 30,000 population anticipated by 2039.

The five-minute survey seeks Sylvan Lake residents’ thoughts on existing transportation networks and what they’d like to see added in the future. It also ask questions pertaining to residents’ current travel patterns and frequently visited destinations.

The LUB survey and the Transportation Master Plan survey are both accessible on the Town’s webpage (sylvanlake.ca) under the ‘What’s Happening’ link. Further details on both projects is available at sylvanlake.ca/projects.
