Land Use Bylaw Update

A Land Use Bylaw is a planning document that all municipalities in Alberta are required to adopt. It is the primary ‘instruction manual’ for land use and development in the County. The County’s current Land Use Bylaw was adopted in 2018 and is due for an update.

Flagstaff County was founded on agriculture. With one million acres of fertile farmland and a temperate climate, the Flagstaff Region produces bountiful yields of wheat, canola, barley, peas, flax, oats and specialty crops with the potential to be processed locally in a low-cost business environment. Within the 638 farms located in the county, an estimated 70% of the region’s total cropland has been deemed to possess high-quality soils. Livestock is an important secondary activity, and the supply chain is well established. The Flagstaff Region offers opportunities in greenhouses, meat snacks, pulse foods, ready meats, agricultural services, craft value-added production, agritourism and farm succession.

An agricultural powerhouse with room to grow – spirit, family, and enterprise opportunity – affordably. Authentically solidified by our roots in the value of hand-waves and hand-shakes. Nine communities across 4,000 sq. km of prairie vista. There’s nothing….so beautiful. Let’s see those photos to prove it!
