St. Albert residents have voiced their opinion through a recent survey about the proposed changes to the cities Land-Use Bylaw.
Although the What We Heard report claims that only 43 residents took the online survey, there was a higher turnout at their in-person and virtual open houses, with 46 and 110 attendees respectively.
The online survey report showed that citizens were most concerned about the change to minimum parkign requirements, specifically those around secondary suites.
The proposed change would allow for more than one secondary suite per property, but without needing to have a parking space for another suite. Some residents voiced their approval, saying that there are enough empty parking spaces in the city, while others argued that there weren’t enough.
Other proposed changes includes new properties needing bicycle parking spaces, electric vehicle charging stations, and new land-use districts.
St. Albert city council will hold a hearing on the Land-Use Bylaw in the coming months, with councillor’s being able to debate these proposed changes.
