Winfield was the next hamlet on the docket as Wetaskiwin County council continues its sweep across the county, examining hamlet boundaries and looking at any updates needed.

During council’s June 9 meeting councillors examined the hamlet’s boundaries, civic addressing and zoning.

Three readings for boundary amendments were approved, as some of the community facilities were not technically within the hamlet.

Council also approved a number of parcels of land for rezoning. The first was altered from institutional to urban fringe, the second from country residential to institutional, and the third from institutional to recreational.

“There are three parcels administration feels should be rezoned to confirm with our land use bylaw,” explained assistant CAO Rod Hawken.
