The Hamlet of Gwynne’s municipal boundaries were extended last summer and now the County of Wetaskiwin council is doing a tidying by rezoning 14 lots to something better suited to the land’s position.

All three readings to rezone the properties were approved at council’s April 14 meeting.

County administration informed council the proposed zone changes will not drastically change the land uses of the properties; and as long as land uses conform with the zoning it will not affect taxation of the property.

Of the 14 properties 13 are being zoned from urban fringe, which Reeve Kathy Rooyakkers explained is typically used for land just outside the boundaries of a municipality, to urban residential.

The last parcel of land is being rezoned from urban fringe to institutional.
