At the January meeting, Council defeated Bylaw No. 2014-40 which was an amendment to Land Use Bylaw 2013-50 as Council was concerned with how restricting the amendment to Part 7 was and wanted the opportunity to revisit it. Administration reviewed the proposed amendment to Part 7 and decided to leave the wording the way it currently is in the Land Use Bylaw, which states that storage tanks for Combustive/Flammable Liquids over 230 litres in size must be placed underground in the Country Residential and General Urban Districts if the proposed tank is to be located close to residential uses. Anyone applying for a storage tank over 230 litres will be required to conform to guidelines prescribed by the Petroleum Tank Management Association of Alberta.
Section 1.3 - Definitions and Section 8.4(1)(e)(iii) were not part of the amendment previously presented to Council.
The proposed amendments to the Land Use Bylaw are as follows:
Part 1- Introductions
Section 1.3 Definitions
(87) “park model” means a recreational vehicle conforming to CAN-CSA Series Z241.
(95) "recreation vehicle" means a vehicular type unit primarily designed as temporary living quarters for recreational camping or travel use, which either has its own means of transportation or is mounted or drawn by another vehicle. The base entities are travel trailer, camping trailer, truck camper, fifth wheel, park model and motor home.
