Proposed Traffic Bylaw Changes Feedback

The Traffic Bylaw Modernization Project was undertaken to review, update, modernize, and consolidate all bylaws related to traffic safety to create a single all-inclusive bylaw. 

Protective Services has worked very closely with the local RCMP and internal stakeholders to ensure Bylaw No. 2291 meets the needs of the community.

The public survey is now closed and results are being presented to Council June 6th!

The highlights of the bylaw include:

  • Consolidation and modernization of all relevant adopted bylaws.
  • Permitting OHV use within town for the purpose of accessing lands surrounding the town, with conditions.
  • Recognition of the increased use of Town streets by trucks and designation of those streets as truck routes.
  • Clarification of the definition of “Recreational Vehicle.”

The proposed bylaw can be found below.

In Spring of 2022, the Town of Edson and Rural Development Network conducted the Edson Housing & Service Needs Estimation Survey.

The project goals were to

  • Provide a comprehensive picture of housing instability and homelessness in Edson, including demographic information on who is experiencing homelessness and which services are being accessed and which services are missing.
  • Help inform service providers and municipal, territorial, and federal policies, practices, and funding decisions on homelessness, housing, and support services.
  • Elevate and incorporate the voices of people experiencing homelessness in the solutions to end homelessness.

The Town of Edson is asking everyone to get involved in the Land Use Bylaw Rewrite.

As a landowner in Town, if you are planning to develop or make changes to your property like constructing a new building, installing solar panels on your home, or establishing secondary suites, the Land Use Bylaw indicates what is permitted on your property. As the bylaw is updated, it’s critical to know what is important to you!

What is a Land Use Bylaw and why is it important? The Land Use Bylaw is one tool that helps the Town turn its vision for development into reality. The current Land Use Bylaw was initially written in the 1990s. Despite many amendments over time, the Town is undertaking a rewrite of the Bylaw to make the document relevant to the community, and development in Edson today. It is time to fix the root of the issue with a new Land Use Bylaw that can address the current challenges and better adapt to the future needs of Edson.

Engagement - The Town of Edson wants to understand what topics matter to you as the rewrite of the Land Use Bylaw begins. There are several upcoming opportunities for you to have your say! Watch our website and social media channels for polls and in-person engagement opportunities throughout the summer!
