Proposed bylaw to adopt the Equity Industrial Park ASP and proposed bylaws to amend the IDP, MDP, LUB
Proposed Bylaw #18-1063 is a bylaw that proposes to adopt an updated Equity Industrial Park Area Structure Plan (EIP ASP) in Beaver County. The purpose of the EIP ASP is to provide a future vision, development objectives and policy direction to establish the logical expansion of the EIP.
As part of the EIP ASP update process in Beaver County, the County is also amending applicable portions of the Ryley-Beaver Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP), the County Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and the County Land Use Bylaw (LUB) to ensure alignment. The Municipal Government Act outlines the need for these statutory plans to be consistent with one another.
Beaver County Council has passed 1st reading to these bylaws (#18-1061, #18-1062, #18-1063 and #18-1064). The Village of Ryley Council has passed 1st reading to the same Ryley-Beaver IDP bylaw (#2018-09-24). The proposed amendments to the Ryley-Beaver IDP and MDP include minor text and map amendments to align with the proposed EIP ASP policy areas.
The proposed amendments to the LUB include two (2) new land use districts with new permitted and discretionary uses, text and map amendments to align with the proposed EIP ASP policy areas. The proposed new land use districts are:
- IL – Business/Light Industrial District
- IM – Medium Industrial District
The following parcels in the EIP will be rezoned as follows:
RI (Rural Industrial) to IL (Business/Light Industrial):
- Plan 122 2575; Block 2; Lots 2 to 7
RI (Rural Industrial) to IM (Medium Industrial):
