New Development Plan and Zoning By-Laws Underway
The Town of The Pas and the RM of Kelsey have come together through the recently formed Kelsey Planning District to begin work on a new Development Plan and updated Zoning By-Laws for the area, with planning support from HTFC Planning & Design.
The new by-laws will help to map out the community’s long-term plans and policies to guide future growth and change. They will ensure that development in the area will move forward collaboratively, with the shared goal of encouraging development that is in the best interests of The Pas and the RM of Kelsey, including Cranberry Portage and Wanless. The new Development Plan will incorporate both short-term and long-term changes as the area continues to grow as a regional service centre in northern Manitoba.
A new development plan and updated zoning-bylaws will also help to address and guide the sustainable subdivision of land and residential development in the area; seasonal/cottage development; agriculture and livestock operations; signage; and more.
