In continuing efforts to reexamine the boundaries of all the hamlets within the County of Wetaskiwin, multiple properties on the outskirts of Alder Flats received new zonings.
One lot was rezoned from urban fringe to urban residential and another from rural residential to urban fringe.
“Urban fringe … That allows you to still have agricultural uses,” said assistant CAO Rod Hawken.
With the boundary amendments five more lots are now included within the hamlet itself.
A few landowners got up to speak to council with the usual concerns of tax changes and land uses.
Reeve Kathy Rooyakkers emphasized the point that if landowners do not change what they are using the land for the taxation will not change either.
