COUNCIL: Second McDougal Flats Moratorium Public Hearing
Posted: 2014 October 15th
At its regular meeting on October 22, Mountain View County Council approved a second public hearing for Wednesday, November 12 in regards to the McDougal Flats Moratorium Bylaw.
The decision will allow for additional discussion and information arising out of the draft McDougal Flats Flood Hazard Study which has been released to the public and is the subject of an open house on November 4 in Sundre (see details below).
The first public hearing on the moratorium bylaw was held on October 9 and was closed.
Following the first public hearing, consideration of second and third readings were deferred by council until Nov. 12.
The second public hearing will start at 1 p.m.
Reeve Bruce Beattie said councillors believe this is the appropriate course of action considering the timing of the province's releasing of the draft study and the draft flood hazard mapping for the Red Deer River in the area.
In its current form, the proposed bylaw would implement a temporary redesignation, subdivision and development moratorium in the entire area used in the study commissioned by the provincial government.

- Tuesday, November 4, 2014
- 5 pm - 9 pm, with a scheduled presentation at 7 pm
- Sundre Legion, 135 - 6 Street SE, Sundre
