Official Community Plan & Zoning Bylaw Update Project
Share Your Vision!
For Community Growth and Development in the Town of Pilot Butte.
Great News! The Town of Pilot Butte is launching a review of the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw and we want your input.
The existing Official Community Plan was adopted in 2014 while the Zoning Bylaw was adopted in 2017 and so much has changed in the past 5 years. It’s now time for us to update and modernize the plan. The key issues that we are aware of are: Economic Growth; Housing Diversity and Pathways Development.
What is an Official Community Plan?
An Official Community Plan (OCP) is the municipality’s vision for the future and outlines a timeframe for achieving that vision. It is a comprehensive policy document designed to guide the physical, environmental, economic, social and cultural development of the municipality.

What is a Zoning Bylaw?
A Zoning Bylaw (ZB) establishes land development regulations needed to achieve the OCP’s vision. It controls the use of land in your community by regulating land use, building location, development standards, specific uses, and site-specific regulations such as lot sizes, setback distances, building heights, parking requirements, etc. A ZB also outlines the day-to-day administration including processes for the development of land and applying for various permits.
