Notice of Public Hearing for Proposed Bylaw 15-Z/18 (New Land Use District, Dead Man's Flats)


The M.D. of Bighorn received an application from Yamnuska Hospitality Inc. to amend Land Use Bylaw 04/10 by creating a new land use district – Dead Man’s Flats Commercial Mixed Use District (DMF-CMU) and redistrict Lot 4, Block 3, Plan 1612266, approximately 0.603 ha (1.5 ac) of land in the Hamlet of Dead Man’s Flats, from Dead Man’s Flats Tourist and Highway Commercial District (DMF-HWY) to Dead Man’s Flats Commercial Mixed Use District (DMF-CMU).

The purposed Bylaw 15-Z/18 to Create a New Land Use District within the Hamlet of Dead Man's Flats has been approved by Council for 1st Reading. The purpose of proposed Bylaw 15-Z/18, is to create a new land use district – Dead Man’s Flats Commercial Mixed Use District (DMF-CMU) and redistrict Lot 4, Block 3, Plan 1612266, approximately 0.603 ha (1.5 ac) of land in the Hamlet of Dead Man’s Flats, from Dead Man’s Flats Tourist and Highway Commercial District (DMF-HWY) to Dead Man’s Flats Commercial Mixed Use District (DMF-CMU).  

The proposed land use district conforms to the policies contained in the Dead Man’s Flats Area Redevelopment Plan.  The land is proposed for commercial-residential mixed-use development, consisting of ground floor commercial uses and upper floor residential units.  The purpose of the proposed district is to allow for and encourage a mix of commercial, residential, office, and other uses that serve the local Hamlet residents and traveling public.  Development in the district is intended to be compact with a focus on street-oriented design and a high-quality pedestrian environment.  The proposed DMF-CMU district proposes a new land use of Flexible Accommodation which would allow an accommodation unit that can be used as a primary residence or for temporary lodging with no time limits on visitor stays and would be considered as a commercial land use for the purposes of municipal assessment and taxation.
