The County of Grande Prairie wants to make living in its communities the best it can be. It is currently looking for public feedback on a new noise, nuisance and safety bylaw. Regional Enforcement Services Superintendent Stuart Rempel says a new bylaw is needed based on the population growth he’s been seeing.
“With the County’s population on the rise, the new bylaw sets standards to make growing communities safer, more attractive and more enjoyable for our residents. The bylaw also gives the County the tools to proactively enforce these standards.”
On February 25th, the draft bylaw passed through council for first reading. The county now wants to hear from people to see if any changes need to be made before it is taken back to council for approval.
People can share the their opinions on the county’s website from now until March 24th. If approved, Rempel says the goal is to have the new bylaw in place before campgrounds open on the May long weekend.
