City looking to become more competitive with County in development
The City of Grande Prairie wants to make sure it’s competitive with the County when it comes to development.
City planner Stuart Wraight recently completed a study that showed several ways in which the City was more expensive to build.
One of those was the Transportation Off-Site Levy Bylaw.
“There are significant differences between urban and rural environments, so as further discussion that administration will be reviewing the transportation levy by-law, which will be a work in progress.”
City staff are now looking into drafting a land use bylaw that would include a “rural industrial” district with similar development costs to the County.
